Golden Kamuy Plot!
The plot revolves around Saichi Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese War. During the early 1900s, Saichi Sugimoto tirelessly pans for gold on Hokkaido after the Russo-Japanese war.
He is called the “Immortal” because of his death-defying acts in battle and seeks fortune in order to keep his promise to his best friend, who was killed in action, and to support his family, especially his widow, whose eyesight is deteriorating and needs treatment overseas.
An Ainu man who murdered a group of Ainu and stole a fortune in gold is told about the crime by a drunken companion to Sugimoto. The gold was hidden somewhere in Hokkaido before he was arrested by the Japanese. In exchange for a share of the treasure, if they escaped and found it, he tattooed a coded map on the bodies of his cellmates.
Until he discovers the drunken man’s corpse bearing the tattoos described in the story, Sugimoto does not give the tale much thought. The man’s demise was caused by a grizzly bear, which approached Sugimoto to finish her meal before he could collect his thoughts. He is saved by a young Ainu girl named Asirpa, whose father happened to be one of the murdered Ainu. Sugimoto and Asirpa join forces to find the hidden treasure, one to recover what was rightfully her people’s, and the other to fulfill the dying wish of his friend.
