In Golden Kamui Hijikata is also reportedly dead. Few knew he was just thrown into prison forever...

That, IMHO, is an understatement!

Heh. Just seems to me that there are are least 4-5 anime about the Shinsengumi every year, never minding the ongoing manga and any number of doramas about them. The Japanese seem utterly fascinated with them.

Isn't the award for the manga, though?

Yes, the Tezuka Prize is a manga award. Looking at the list in that link, a number of them have been adapted to anime. Over the past decade I see Moyashimon, Hyouge Mono, Kingdom, 3-gatsu no Lion, and now Golden Kamuy. Three of those are from the NHK, and Moyashimon was on noitaminA, but Golden Kamuy is being distributed over ordinary commercial outlets.

Glaring omission from the adaptation list there is obviously Otoyomegatari, which for my money may be the best manga of the decade. But given the shitstorm over the visuals in Golden Kamuy and the fact that it probably won’t get much of a budget if it’s ever adapted, maybe it’s for the best. What a shame, though - Tezuka winner, quite popular, would make a fantastic anime in the right hands.

Pretty sure I learned more about the Ainu culture in this last episode alone than in the last decade. Add that with good doses of brutality, interesting views on morals, and I can definetly see where the praises for the manga come from (Asirpa being cute and awesome helps too, of course). Will probably wait till the anime is done to pick up the manga, though, don't want to set myself for potential adaptation dissapointment since I'm enjoying the anime so far.

At this point, saying the Shinsengumi are everywhere (since long ago as well, don't forget that) in anime, manga and VN is an understatement, is, in itself, an understatement.

Any possible explanation on that? Just out of curiosity.

Pretty much just part of Japan's usual glorification of samurai culture. Shinsengumi is pretty much on the level of Sanada Yukimura, Sakamoto Ryouma, Oda Nobunaga, etc. when it comes to popularity.

Yeah, they're just... Everything Japan loves to romanticize in its pop culture. Historical figures, dashing, devoted to a futile cause, full of big personalities and from pop culture's favorite era in Japanese history. Also, doesn't hurt that they were featured prominently in a couple of legendary manga/anime a couple of decades ago.
