This Week in Anime: Konosuba, Golden Kamuy, and More…
Sorry, this is coming out a day late, I was feeling a bit distracted and not really in a mood to write. Some painful memories recently got stirred up again and it put me in a really weird place, but now I am ok again. Anyway, on to this week’s news
A list of new anime announcements:
Golden Kamuy Season 2 Will Air in the Fall

Golden Kamuy centers around Sugimoto, a Russo-Japanese war veteran who, after finding out his friends wife will soon go blind, heads out on a mission to find a hidden treasure that will help him get her the medicine he needs. Along the way, he meets up with various dangerous individuals who also happen to be looking for the treasure.
