Late Meiji era. The Russo-Japanese war hero, Sugimoto Saichi, nicknamed “the Immortal Sugimoto“, is in Hokkaido to acquire a large sum of money for a specific purpose. There, he is offered the chance to get rich from the huge reserves of gold stolen from the Ainu people. The reserves are hidden by a man imprisoned in Abashiri Prison, and the tattoos on the bodies of 24 escaped prisoners are said to be clues to its whereabouts.
Then, Sugimoto is attacked by a brown bear, and an Ainu girl saves him. The girl, whose name is Asirpa, had her father killed by the man who took the buried gold. As if in response to Sugimoto’s actions, the 7th Division, the most powerful unit in the north, and escaped prisoners with tattoos on their backs, who have long been in the dark for the buried gold, also start to make their movements known. What will become of the get-rich-quick survival that has been taking place in the magnificent northern lands?

While thousands of Anime tend to be available only on specific streaming networks and Anime sites, Muse Asia looks to break the barrier of streaming services by making the anime episodes available on the biggest video streaming giant “YouTube” an authentic and smart choice by the company.
While the tradition of viewing and streaming anime still tends to be done on anime sites exclusively, Muse Asia’s decision to distribute anime on YouTube might be a whiff of new air for some it still is a fresh take on the experience as YouTube is the biggest streaming and viewing engine in the world it’s also the most easily accessible. With some Anime being distributed through YouTube it is a high chance that most upcoming Anime might follow suit.
