Golden Kamuy could be the next anime and manga franchise to get a live-action adaptation. Satoru Noda’s series should get a feature.
News has come from Manga Mogura on Twitter, but we were not lucky enough to get any more details. We can only assume that, as the manga is coming to an end, there will be big announcements soon.
