    Read April 27, 2016 In the second volume Sugimoto and Asirpa are being tracked by the infamous 7th division. While on the run they stop at an Ainu village, where we learn more about culture and history of these people. It's hard to comprehend how a country as advanced as Japan treat...

    I freaking love this series. I was a little unsure about the mixture of a serious plot and ultra-simulatory survival with humor, but I am completely sold. It just works so well. I love learning about Ainu culture, survival, and cooking, and the characters are just a joy to watch. I lov...

    If the first volume sets the stage, the players truly become to strut upon it in this volume. The two protagonists -- for they share the designation in all honesty -- have the same goal, but different reasons, and both have their methods and backgrounds explored more thoroughly herein....

    Ok, Noda gets really overboard with the descriptions of every single item and tradition of the Ainu, I don't need to know every single detail of their way life, gets boring fast, I'm skipping more and more of these as I go. ...

    I'm loving this series, even though it can get pretty gruesome sometimes (I'm constantly laughing and cringing by turns as I read each volume), I love the characters, the fight scenes, and the plot always keeps me on the edge of my seat. ...

    The second volume continues the amazingly information-rich and detailed story about the treasure-hunting soldier with ferocious reputation and the smart and capable Ainu girl. I know some people might find it heavy read with a lot of "info-dumping" but I just love it. I adore well-res...

    literally amazing, makes me laugh and cry. Characters are so loveable while being flawed, artwork is still a sight for sore eyes. Volume 3 im coming for you ...

    More wolf = more better, as this volume surpasses the first in humor, cuteness and gore. And more bear helps too. This is a perfect translation of the American Western to a Japanese setting, evoking for me "The Outlaw Josey Wales," "True Grit," "Dances With Wolves" and "The Unforgiven....

    A big wolf who like belly rubs. Ainu culture and cuisine. Plus another enraged bear, who this time rips a guy's face off. How can you not like this series? Full review eventually appearing on ANN. ...

    Really beautiful violent fascinating volume. Art is gorgeous, story intriguing. Can't wait for next volume. ...

    I got to learn a little about Ainu culture through the main character, Asirpa. The miso conversation was funny. ...

    In early 20th century Japan, Saichi ?Immortal? Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war, is scrapping out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier of Hokkaido. Sugimoto stumbles upon the first ?piece? of a map leading to a fortune in hidden gold...

    For some bizarre reason I waited almost a year to purchase the subsequent volumes of this series after the first. It is easily the best manga being published today. Satoru Noda may play a little loose with the historical chronology, but it all fits. within the same small window of tim...

    I am still enjoying this series but do think that it sometimes gets a little bogged down by all the detail. While the depictions of Ainu life are fascinating, the story did stall for the first half of this volume as Noda depicted the life and beliefs of Asirpa's people to the minute de...

    4/5 Stars The second volume in the Golden Kamuy series is just as strong as the first. I am really enjoying this series so far, it continues to be richly detailed and researched. This volume finds Sugimoto and Asirpa being tracked by the infamous 7th division, detouring to Asirpa?...

    I'm continually blown away by this series. The story is fascinating, as are the historical notes about the Ainu and Japan following the Russo-Japanese war. This volume introduced us to Asirpa more, her family, more of her backstory and how she ended up with Sugimoto. Plus, the art i...

    3.5 stars Bit weak in my opinion but I'm hoping it picks up soon And for the love of God, please someone tell me the mangaka is not paving the road to have Sugimoto to end up with Asirpa.... she's like 11 right now and even if we're talking about the future, it's a huge NO from m...

    Yes, it's that good. Unique, especially in a time when Western comics can only manage superhero one track drivel and liberal trolling. The story is a Japanese 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' and is especially brilliant in it's portrayal of a Native Ainu heroine (*not a lot of peopl...

    Vol. 2 slows things down a bit, to give us some character development and cultural world building. I found myself enthralled into some of the character cultural backgrounds, which kept me reading to the end. ...

    This continues to be great, but it's also kind of hilarious how close to treads to educational children's programming with the amount of helpful explanatory asides about the world. Granted, balancing that with images of a man having his face ripped off by a bear is pretty fun. ...

    Otherwise good, but the gruesome violence puts me off. ...

    Still enjoyed the series tho the plot has thicken considerably. And I've learned so much by one single volume of manga than one whole book of literature about the culture and their minority group. ...

    This story is getting better by the page. ...

    I definitely enjoyed it more than the first. That bear scene though! ...

    I came here for manga about hunt to find gold in post Russo-Japanese Hokkaido, but stayed for excellent character dynamics, wonderful food content and awesome art. ...

    Bizarre, funny and action-packed, I am really enjoying this manga. ...

    Superb. Stoey building nicely. ...

    Not *quite* as action-packed as the first volume, this one beefs up the Ainu culture/history. Still a big fan of these characters, but I'm looking forward to a bit more plot movement in volume 3. ...

    I will continue with one more volume. ...

    I'm going to need to see some plot here soon, because the gore/violence/dead animals (which, to be fair, continue to be eaten) is getting to be a bit much. ...

    Yes, it's that good. Unique, especially in a time when Western comics can only manage superhero one track drivel and liberal trolling. The story is a Japanese 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' and is especially brilliant in it's portrayal of a Native Ainu heroine (*not a lot of peopl...

    Vol. 2 slows things down a bit, to give us some character development and cultural world building. I found myself enthralled into some of the character cultural backgrounds, which kept me reading to the end. ...

    This continues to be great, but it's also kind of hilarious how close to treads to educational children's programming with the amount of helpful explanatory asides about the world. Granted, balancing that with images of a man having his face ripped off by a bear is pretty fun. ...

    Otherwise good, but the gruesome violence puts me off. ...

    Still enjoyed the series tho the plot has thicken considerably. And I've learned so much by one single volume of manga than one whole book of literature about the culture and their minority group. ...

    Read April 27, 2016 In the second volume Sugimoto and Asirpa are being tracked by the infamous 7th division. While on the run they stop at an Ainu village, where we learn more about culture and history of these people. It's hard to comprehend how a country as advanced as Japan treat...

    I freaking love this series. I was a little unsure about the mixture of a serious plot and ultra-simulatory survival with humor, but I am completely sold. It just works so well. I love learning about Ainu culture, survival, and cooking, and the characters are just a joy to watch. I lov...

    If the first volume sets the stage, the players truly become to strut upon it in this volume. The two protagonists -- for they share the designation in all honesty -- have the same goal, but different reasons, and both have their methods and backgrounds explored more thoroughly herein....

    Ok, Noda gets really overboard with the descriptions of every single item and tradition of the Ainu, I don't need to know every single detail of their way life, gets boring fast, I'm skipping more and more of these as I go. ...

    I'm loving this series, even though it can get pretty gruesome sometimes (I'm constantly laughing and cringing by turns as I read each volume), I love the characters, the fight scenes, and the plot always keeps me on the edge of my seat. ...

    The second volume continues the amazingly information-rich and detailed story about the treasure-hunting soldier with ferocious reputation and the smart and capable Ainu girl. I know some people might find it heavy read with a lot of "info-dumping" but I just love it. I adore well-res...

    literally amazing, makes me laugh and cry. Characters are so loveable while being flawed, artwork is still a sight for sore eyes. Volume 3 im coming for you ...

    More wolf = more better, as this volume surpasses the first in humor, cuteness and gore. And more bear helps too. This is a perfect translation of the American Western to a Japanese setting, evoking for me "The Outlaw Josey Wales," "True Grit," "Dances With Wolves" and "The Unforgiven....

    A big wolf who like belly rubs. Ainu culture and cuisine. Plus another enraged bear, who this time rips a guy's face off. How can you not like this series? Full review eventually appearing on ANN. ...

    Really beautiful violent fascinating volume. Art is gorgeous, story intriguing. Can't wait for next volume. ...

    I got to learn a little about Ainu culture through the main character, Asirpa. The miso conversation was funny. ...

    In early 20th century Japan, Saichi ?Immortal? Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war, is scrapping out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier of Hokkaido. Sugimoto stumbles upon the first ?piece? of a map leading to a fortune in hidden gold...

    For some bizarre reason I waited almost a year to purchase the subsequent volumes of this series after the first. It is easily the best manga being published today. Satoru Noda may play a little loose with the historical chronology, but it all fits. within the same small window of tim...

    I am still enjoying this series but do think that it sometimes gets a little bogged down by all the detail. While the depictions of Ainu life are fascinating, the story did stall for the first half of this volume as Noda depicted the life and beliefs of Asirpa's people to the minute de...

    4/5 Stars The second volume in the Golden Kamuy series is just as strong as the first. I am really enjoying this series so far, it continues to be richly detailed and researched. This volume finds Sugimoto and Asirpa being tracked by the infamous 7th division, detouring to Asirpa?...

    I definitely enjoyed it more than the first. That bear scene though! ...

    I came here for manga about hunt to find gold in post Russo-Japanese Hokkaido, but stayed for excellent character dynamics, wonderful food content and awesome art. ...

    Bizarre, funny and action-packed, I am really enjoying this manga. ...

    Superb. Stoey building nicely. ...

    Not *quite* as action-packed as the first volume, this one beefs up the Ainu culture/history. Still a big fan of these characters, but I'm looking forward to a bit more plot movement in volume 3. ...

    I'm continually blown away by this series. The story is fascinating, as are the historical notes about the Ainu and Japan following the Russo-Japanese war. This volume introduced us to Asirpa more, her family, more of her backstory and how she ended up with Sugimoto. Plus, the art i...

    3.5 stars Bit weak in my opinion but I'm hoping it picks up soon And for the love of God, please someone tell me the mangaka is not paving the road to have Sugimoto to end up with Asirpa.... she's like 11 right now and even if we're talking about the future, it's a huge NO from m...

    Yes, it's that good. Unique, especially in a time when Western comics can only manage superhero one track drivel and liberal trolling. The story is a Japanese 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' and is especially brilliant in it's portrayal of a Native Ainu heroine (*not a lot of peopl...

    Vol. 2 slows things down a bit, to give us some character development and cultural world building. I found myself enthralled into some of the character cultural backgrounds, which kept me reading to the end. ...

    This continues to be great, but it's also kind of hilarious how close to treads to educational children's programming with the amount of helpful explanatory asides about the world. Granted, balancing that with images of a man having his face ripped off by a bear is pretty fun. ...

    Otherwise good, but the gruesome violence puts me off. ...

    Still enjoyed the series tho the plot has thicken considerably. And I've learned so much by one single volume of manga than one whole book of literature about the culture and their minority group. ...

    This story is getting better by the page. ...

    Read April 27, 2016 In the second volume Sugimoto and Asirpa are being tracked by the infamous 7th division. While on the run they stop at an Ainu village, where we learn more about culture and history of these people. It's hard to comprehend how a country as advanced as Japan treat...

    I freaking love this series. I was a little unsure about the mixture of a serious plot and ultra-simulatory survival with humor, but I am completely sold. It just works so well. I love learning about Ainu culture, survival, and cooking, and the characters are just a joy to watch. I lov...

    If the first volume sets the stage, the players truly become to strut upon it in this volume. The two protagonists -- for they share the designation in all honesty -- have the same goal, but different reasons, and both have their methods and backgrounds explored more thoroughly herein....

    Ok, Noda gets really overboard with the descriptions of every single item and tradition of the Ainu, I don't need to know every single detail of their way life, gets boring fast, I'm skipping more and more of these as I go. ...

    I'm loving this series, even though it can get pretty gruesome sometimes (I'm constantly laughing and cringing by turns as I read each volume), I love the characters, the fight scenes, and the plot always keeps me on the edge of my seat. ...

    The second volume continues the amazingly information-rich and detailed story about the treasure-hunting soldier with ferocious reputation and the smart and capable Ainu girl. I know some people might find it heavy read with a lot of "info-dumping" but I just love it. I adore well-res...

    literally amazing, makes me laugh and cry. Characters are so loveable while being flawed, artwork is still a sight for sore eyes. Volume 3 im coming for you ...

    More wolf = more better, as this volume surpasses the first in humor, cuteness and gore. And more bear helps too. This is a perfect translation of the American Western to a Japanese setting, evoking for me "The Outlaw Josey Wales," "True Grit," "Dances With Wolves" and "The Unforgiven....

    A big wolf who like belly rubs. Ainu culture and cuisine. Plus another enraged bear, who this time rips a guy's face off. How can you not like this series? Full review eventually appearing on ANN. ...

    Really beautiful violent fascinating volume. Art is gorgeous, story intriguing. Can't wait for next volume. ...

    In early 20th century Japan, Saichi ?Immortal? Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war, is scrapping out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier of Hokkaido. Sugimoto stumbles upon the first ?piece? of a map leading to a fortune in hidden gold...

    Ok, Noda gets really overboard with the descriptions of every single item and tradition of the Ainu, I don't need to know every single detail of their way life, gets boring fast, I'm skipping more and more of these as I go. ...

    I'm loving this series, even though it can get pretty gruesome sometimes (I'm constantly laughing and cringing by turns as I read each volume), I love the characters, the fight scenes, and the plot always keeps me on the edge of my seat. ...

    The second volume continues the amazingly information-rich and detailed story about the treasure-hunting soldier with ferocious reputation and the smart and capable Ainu girl. I know some people might find it heavy read with a lot of "info-dumping" but I just love it. I adore well-res...

    literally amazing, makes me laugh and cry. Characters are so loveable while being flawed, artwork is still a sight for sore eyes. Volume 3 im coming for you ...

    More wolf = more better, as this volume surpasses the first in humor, cuteness and gore. And more bear helps too. This is a perfect translation of the American Western to a Japanese setting, evoking for me "The Outlaw Josey Wales," "True Grit," "Dances With Wolves" and "The Unforgiven....

    A big wolf who like belly rubs. Ainu culture and cuisine. Plus another enraged bear, who this time rips a guy's face off. How can you not like this series? Full review eventually appearing on ANN. ...

    Really beautiful violent fascinating volume. Art is gorgeous, story intriguing. Can't wait for next volume. ...

    I got to learn a little about Ainu culture through the main character, Asirpa. The miso conversation was funny. ...

    In early 20th century Japan, Saichi ?Immortal? Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war, is scrapping out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier of Hokkaido. Sugimoto stumbles upon the first ?piece? of a map leading to a fortune in hidden gold...

    For some bizarre reason I waited almost a year to purchase the subsequent volumes of this series after the first. It is easily the best manga being published today. Satoru Noda may play a little loose with the historical chronology, but it all fits. within the same small window of tim...

    I am still enjoying this series but do think that it sometimes gets a little bogged down by all the detail. While the depictions of Ainu life are fascinating, the story did stall for the first half of this volume as Noda depicted the life and beliefs of Asirpa's people to the minute de...

    4/5 Stars The second volume in the Golden Kamuy series is just as strong as the first. I am really enjoying this series so far, it continues to be richly detailed and researched. This volume finds Sugimoto and Asirpa being tracked by the infamous 7th division, detouring to Asirpa?...

    I'm continually blown away by this series. The story is fascinating, as are the historical notes about the Ainu and Japan following the Russo-Japanese war. This volume introduced us to Asirpa more, her family, more of her backstory and how she ended up with Sugimoto. Plus, the art i...

    3.5 stars Bit weak in my opinion but I'm hoping it picks up soon And for the love of God, please someone tell me the mangaka is not paving the road to have Sugimoto to end up with Asirpa.... she's like 11 right now and even if we're talking about the future, it's a huge NO from m...

    Yes, it's that good. Unique, especially in a time when Western comics can only manage superhero one track drivel and liberal trolling. The story is a Japanese 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' and is especially brilliant in it's portrayal of a Native Ainu heroine (*not a lot of peopl...

    Vol. 2 slows things down a bit, to give us some character development and cultural world building. I found myself enthralled into some of the character cultural backgrounds, which kept me reading to the end. ...
