The end of the Golden Kamuy manga will be confirmed on April 28, 2022. Golden Kamuy Chapter 314 will complete the final storyline and Golden Kamuy Volume 31 will contain the final chapter.
According to Shueisha’s Weekly young jump magazine, creator Satoru Noda’s manga series entered its climactic phase with the May 2021 release of Golden Kamuy Chapter 277: Operation Defend Hanazawa Yuusaku’s Virginity.
(With a chapter title like that, you have to wonder if the corporal humor creator timed the climax announcement as a meta-joke.)
On July 29, 2021, the 35th issue of Weekly Young Jump began its final storyline with Golden Kamuy Chapter 285. The manga went on hiatus for a month after Chapter 284 was released on June 24, 2021.
In early April 2022, the magazine announced that the end of the Golden Kamuy manga was imminent. Golden Kamuy 312 was released on April 14, 2022, then Golden Kamuy 313 on April 21, 2022, and then Golden Kamuy 314 on April 28, 2022.
After the long stay in Karafuto which was adapted by the third season of the anime, many of the characters have been reunited in recent storylines. One of the factions has already gathered everything they need to decipher the code and find the hidden treasure. The climactic phase of Golden Kamuy has been played from 2021 since the endgame started with the Battle of Hakodate arc.
In Japanese stories, there is a four-company structure known as Kishōtenketsu.
- Ki: Introduction
- Shō: Development
- Ten: Twist (complication)
- Ketsu : Conclusion (reconciliation)
During the Twist phase, the story takes an unexpected turn and contains the yama, or climax, of the story.
- Updated April 6, 2022: Golden Kamuy’s final chapter/volume has been announced.
- Updated July 27, 2021: Golden Kamuy final arc announced.
The English release schedule of Golden Kamuy manga
The manga has been featured weekly in Weekly Young Jump magazine since August 2014. The beginning of the climax, Golden Kamuy 277, was released as part of Volume 28.
The manga series will run through Volume 29 from April 19, 2022. The Golden Kamuy Volume 30 release date is June 17, 2022, and Volume 31 will end on July 19, 2022.
As of the release of Golden Kamuy Volume 18, the manga series had sold over 10 million copies. By September 2020, the Golden Kamuy manga series had sold 14 million copies, and by December 2021 there were 18 million copies in circulation.
VIZ Media publishes the official English translation of the Golden Kamuy manga series. The English manga was scheduled to release on February 15, 2022 to Volume 25, and Volume 26 was scheduled for release on May 17, 2022.
Could Golden Kamuy Season 5 anime adapt the ending of the manga?
The last time there was an update on the anime TV series, it was confirmed that the Golden Kamuy Season 4 release date would be in the fall of 2022. The big surprise was that Studio Brain’s Base took over animation production from Geno Studio after the latter company produced three. seasons.
The only question is how the ending of the Golden Kamuy manga will be adapted. Season 3 director Hitoshi Nanba purposely left the anime with an open ending intent on continuing.
Still, Geno Studio adapted the manga by skipping many storylines and then adapting them to Golden Kamuy OVA episodes. Season 1 modified 62 chapters and Season 2 modified chapters 70 through 139.
The third season was a much simpler adaptation of chapters 140 through 200, except for the ending. In the finale, the anime rearranged scenes a lot to bring the story to a close while also leaving the opening for the sequel to Golden Kamuy.
“I have the last part of [Golden Kamuy] Episode 36 with the intention of continuing,” said the director tweeted† “It would be nice if the 4th season was decided.”
Since the Golden Kamuy manga ends in Chapter 314, Season 4 could adapt multiple storylines up to about Chapter 273. Golden Kamuy Season 5 would then wrap up the remaining chapters.
Hopefully the ending of the Golden Kamuy manga will bring a satisfying end to Saichi Sugimoto and Asirpa’s journey, making fans say, “Hinna, hinna!” Stay tuned!
