A friend first told me to watch this series, because it was Comedy. Little did I know that he hid the fact that it was actually Comedy/Romance/Drama. Probably due to the fact that he thinks it’s a little bit embarrassing for guys to be… you know into this kind of stuff. Well anyways I got more than I bargained for. It did start out as what I thought would be comedy, and turned into something completely different. While the only other anime that fits in the same type of category is Toradora!, which was also recommended by the SAME friend stating that it was just a Comedy too. LOL (I later found out accidently that the two were written by the same author).
The Drama, if you love it there’s enough to pass around. ;D Make sure you pass along some tissues as well.
The cliff hangers are strong! I hated waiting every week for a new episode to come out. Though this is what got me hooked on in the first place. I used to hate episodes that had cliff hangers, but the suspension and wait made every episode worth it. It is tempting to marathon through the whole series, as at the end of every episode, you just can’t wait to see what happens in the next.
The characters, they could have revealed a tad bit more of each character’s backstory. But that would probably have extended the whole series by another whole season with flash backs and tons of dialog. Golden Time is pretty fast paced IMO.
The setting, I liked the setting of it being in college. It was something different from the usual typical high school setting. And being a college student myself it just appealed to me more, just because I’m in college. Now I know this type of setting is not new or anything, I believe there are a couple out there already like White Album or something. I’m just trying to say it is rarely used, or I just haven’t seen that many.
Overall I would recommend right off the bat. It is very enjoyable, though there are some scenes that makes you just want to punch some characters in the Face, really hard too.
