This entire thread is one massive spoiler, but people should know not to read discussions about a show if they haven't watched it anyways.

I am surprised to hear all the criticism of Golden Time here after seeing the 4.6/5 crunchyroll review score. There is almost nothing wrong with the show and it's one of the best animes I've seen. In fact, it's so good, that I'm a little disappointed I watched it because I know I will likely never find another romance as good as this.

I, for one, loved Golden Time. I thought the ending was really great. I was confused about Koko's motives for a while and why she did what she did but some people on Reddit explained it to me in a way that made a lot of sense. This anime is such a breath of fresh air to the genre, not only because it takes place in college but also because of the aforementioned unpredictability. I was not expecting the things that happened to happen...

I still think Toradora is slightly better, not because of the endings, but because it was more simple and sweet. Golden Time also never really had that one tear-inducing moment that Toradora had and thats what puts it in 10/10 territory for me. But GT is certainly the more mature series.

The comparisons with Toradora come from the fact that they are based on light novels by the same author (Yuyuko Takemiya), not because the series are inherently similar. Personally, I think Golden Time has a lot more in common with the Visual Arts/Key anime--Clannad and Kanon (2006) in particular--because of the interplay between drama, comedy, and the supernatural.

My own personal take on Golden Time is that Linda (the year before) and Koko were presented with similar choices: In both cases, they loved Banri but he had forgotten about them. How did they react? Linda gave up on Banri after Banri's accident. She never visited him, pretended not to know him when they did meet, and tried to forget about him in return. She was staring the painful part of being in love right in the face, and instead of fighting through it, she ran away. Koko--admittedly after much soul-searching and with the prodding of her friends--chased after Banri and tried to help him remember her. And what does she tell him at the end? "If you forget me again, I won't forgive you until you remember." Those last three words are telling him that she won't give up on him--despite his brain damage--so he shouldn't give up on her. She was committing to the painful parts of being in love, not just the pleasant bits. In other words, Koko's stalker-ish, obsessive tendencies are exactly what Banri needs.

Personally, I wasn't a fan of the ghost, which is the only reason that Golden TIme doesn't rank as my all-time favorite anime (not because of the supernatural element in-and-of-itself, but because ghost Banri was too petulant and self-centered; I just didn't like the character). But I love the ending.

It wasn't predictable and the characters were well written. It was a breath of fresh air for rom-coms. I left this show in the back of my mind for a long time and when I had nothing to watch I decided to give Golden Time a shot. I was surprised about the development of the story and how grounded it was even when a little of supernatural elements got into the story. I don't usually watch JC Staff shows but I gotta say I was pleasently surprised by this show. It also it made me think. Memories and how they shape who we are and the importance of having courage facing personal changes and circumstances. And of course, live in the present since that's all we can do and move on.

I really like Golden Time too, but don't hold your breath.

Golden Time started out as a Light Novel series (if you don't know, that's a series of short novels aimed at young adults) written by Takemiya Yuyuko. (She also wrote the novels for Toradora! and the lesser known Watashitachi no Tamara-kun, and has collaborated on the Manga editions of Toradora, Golden Time, and more recently a work called Evergreen--all of which are very good except for Evergreen, which sucks.)

The Golden Time anime covers pretty much the entirety of the Golden Time novels, with modest changes. The novels provide more depth, flesh the characters (for example, Banri's relationship with his parents is explored in a lot more detail), and give some more hints at the character's motivations in certain places. But the story ends in basically the same place.

So, unless Takemiya-sensei decides to revisit those characters and that world (possible, but very doubtful at this point), don't expect any more.
