According to the comment Noda thanked his fans for all the support and confirmed that the manga has reached its climax and is heading toward the final chapter. He will finish the series “with all his might”.

Although the author did not reveal exactly how many chapters remain as the historical adventure manga entered its climax in May. But the author was on hiatus in June, and it will return from the hiatus this Thursday.

In addition, the 35th issue will have a center color page in the weekly Young Jump. Furthermore, every chapter of the manga will be available for free on the Yanjan! app and Tonari no Young Jump manga website from Thursday until September 17.

The 20th and 21st annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize-nominated manga Golden Kamuy serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump seinen manga magazine since August of 2014. The series also has a TV animation broadcast record of three times (1st fiscal period April to June 2018, 2nd term October to December of the same year, 3rd term October to October 2020).

Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the first volume:

In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
