Weekly Japanese Pop Culture Thread (October 10th, 2018)

Looking back through the various thread headers I’ve written over the past few months, I was shocked to discover that I’d never featured Golden Kamuy, a historical-fiction manga series about a former soldier and an Ainu girl who go on a hunt for hidden treasure. The manga was adapted into an anime series this year, and its second season just started airing. Apparently Golden Kamuy has bears. I like bears. (The animal pictured in the header image is a squirrel, not a bear, just in case you were confused.)

What have you been watching/reading/eating/playing/listening to lately?
