Golden Kamuy mangaka Satoru Noda has also provided his comment regarding the live-action film adaptation, a rough translation of which can be read below:
“The plan for the live-action adaptation has been in progress for so many years that memories of it have started to fade. I am immensely thankful for everyone who contributed to the original work, and even more so to the countless others who made the live-action adaptation of ‘Golden Kamuy’ possible. As the original creator, I feel a profound sense of gratitude and happiness about its realization. I’ve felt the deep affection that the individuals involved in the live-action project have for ‘Golden Kamuy’.
Personally, I’ve been curious about the props. The Ainu artifacts and costumes have been created by numerous skilled artisans specializing in Ainu traditional crafts, and they truly reflect their expertise. Even items like Sugimoto’s Type 30 rifle are of such quality that they wouldn’t be out of place anywhere.
And then there’s the exceptional cast. I believe that once people watch the actual production, even fans of the original work will come to love the live-action version.
Not just as the original creator, but as a member of the production team, I sincerely hope that many people will enjoy this live-action adaptation.“
