    My Top Pick for the Fall 2013 Season
    I usually wait for several episodes to air before writing a review but this series has definitely caught my attention. I wasn't expecting much from it believing it would be another cliche filled school drama. I have to say that my expectations were incorrect. The series has done a good job with character development of the main characters right out of the gate. The storyline seems to be moving at ...

    A Very Good Romance/Comedy.
    I'll give any anime a chance, so when I saw this I decided to give it a go and I actually found myself really enjoying Golden Time. As a first year college student I found myself connecting with the main character that is going through some of the problems I have to go through, so I found myself really liking his character. The comedy elements of Golden Time were well placed, and I never felt like ...

  • In love with this series
    I really enjoyed this serious. The did a good job building out the characters and getting me attached to them. This may be simple, but it is how I measure an anime. Can I feel what the characters are feeling? Do the characters seem real, like they could exist as people if the world they existed in was true. Is the world they exist in believable enough? Yes to all of these questions. This one ...

  • Great anime for a feels trip!
    The basic premise of the anime seems to be cliche due to the main protagonist (Tada Banri) having amnesia, but this anime seems to have a twist of it's own! First of all, I think it's great how the characters in this anime are not perfect. All these characters have noticeable flaws and it seems like the characters are dealing with situations as if it's real life. For example, the route that Tada ...

  • All around just really, really well done
    Despite the amnesia trope being used to near death, Golden Time is one of few series that utilizes the problem correctly, with main character Tada Banri's struggles after falling off a bridge the day after his high school graduation the main focus of this romantic comedy. Strong character development, likable characters, great storylines, and nice animation leave Golden Time as one of the ...

    Fun little Drama for Everyone
    This anime features a few main characters that are easy to understand and you will learn their own unique personalities. This anime does link a tiny bit of fantasy (but barely) and mainly romance + drama.

    Initially when watching the first three to four episodes, I really did not like it. It felt like it was just about a spoiled brat that had everything and was way too clingy. However, as most ...

    A romance that trumps Romeo and Juliet Hands Down!
    This is simply THE best romance anime I've watched. the character development, plot, theme, and even animation was sublime. the emotions from every character comes to life and remains with you. when they laughed, when they cried, i cried, and in the end i was in love with this anime and recommend it to anyone who loves anime's and romance in general.

  • Meh at best, Disappointing at worst.
    Not a terrible anime, just nothing too deep (except a couple of moments from the main character and Linda). Couldn't get over a couple of plot holes or character arcs that were just dropped out of nowhere and left unresolved. It COULD have been an incredible anime if the characters were given more depth, or the plot and characters were more cohesive (seriously, that slap came from nowhere after ...

  • excellent and recommended!
    This anime was funny, thought provoking, and full of drama... perfect for a slice of life romantic comedy. The last episode tied everything up very nicely. I heard the author of Toradora wrote the plot for Golden Time. Honestly, I thought Golden Time had a much more mature feel to it than Toradora, and I liked Golden Time more. Give it a try, you'll like it.

    Good, but not expected
    I started this anime and really enjoyed it the first several episodes, it had all the feels, and I would wonder how the 20 minutes flew by. However, in the middle of the series I felt that it dragged on, character development kind of just stopped, and it felt like a chore to finish it. I really wanted to finish it, but I was disappointed by the ending.
