    Why you should read Golden Kamuy

    Let's start with the art, it's good and unique in a way that it's not as slick and chiseled like say, SnS's or Bleach's but not as "round" as OP's. The characters aren't as sharp but the art is still very good imo, especially with the nature scenes. The reaction face are top tier though.

    The story premise is very interesting: a guy in search of gold to help his childhood friend but the map to the treasure is etched on the torsos of escaped prisoners. The MC and his ever growing crew have to track down these prisoners to put the whole map together. They'll meet various factions competing along the way, each with their own motivations and goals.

    The humor is top tier, the author really has creative reaction faces and with his cast of super colorful characters (especially the escaped convicts), creates for moments where I busted laughing out loud. You'll find your ... sanity tested on some of these. Also, the character interactions are great too, the main cast of recurring characters form a complex web that tells a story of its own.

    The world building is great, it's one of the reasons why this manga won an award. The author mainly keeps the setting to Hokkaido, but he explores the culture of the Ainu in detail (but not too much where it'll bore you like a documentary), the various wildlife of the island, the towns and natural landscapes, the history of the era, etc. all are interwoven masterfully into the story.

    It is and has just under 150 releases thus far. Perfect for joining in without having to devote months of your life to catching up.

    Has a good balance of badass, comedic, and tender moments. Good world building, cool characters, and an interesting plot.

    hard to say, I'd probably say a blend of OP with the treasure backdrop and Vinland Saga's "grounded" action
