  • One of the best anime I have seen!!
    I don't usually go for romantic-genre anime, but this one is truly exceptional! The story is really well written and the dramatic parts are included at just the right mix of comedy and story progression. I was reading the comments in a forum about Your Lie in April (another favorite of mine) and saw someone recommend this anime as there are similar themes. I watched the first episode and was ...

  • I cant not write a review
    This is hands down the best romance anime i have yet to watch and the only one that i have taken immense pleasure in re-watching. The setting characters events are all thrilling to be a part of and more than anything this anime left me with a sense of satisfaction that has been rarely noted in my watches.

  • There was just something too... shallow about it
    Although it may be a romcom, I personally feel this show had so much more potential. I started watching this show and for the first 4-5 episodes I was pondering on where this show is going with the storyline, and that intrigued me. Then BAM it suddenly took such a turn with the relationship of the MCs, that I literally cringed at how shallow and cliché it was. I continued watching in the hopes ...

  • Absolutely beautiful anime!
    The artwork and the animation. It's all so beautiful. The characters are an acquired taste, but I personally found them enjoyable. A big part of Golden Time's appeal is the idea of nostalgia. If you have had previous relationships, here's a way to relive them, hence the acquired taste. The voice acting is spot on. The soundtrack fits the overall esthetic. And of course, it's currently free to ...

  • What an amazing show!!
    I can't get over it. Character dev, and the story is just amazing. It definitely got to tugging on my heart strings. The feels came out a few times. Crying, laughing, sadness, heart ache, happiness, anxious, addicted; these are all things you can expect from this show. I didn't want it to end but the ending was great!

  • Emotional rollercoaster
    I must say its refreshing to find a Romance/Slice of life anime that has a real story and character development with out the massive EPS fillers. I HIGHLY recommend everyone to give this show a try and next thing you know you'll be binge watching all 24eps and def buckle up for an emotional rollercoaster ride that you surely won't forget. I wish more Romance/Slice of life anime genres would be as ...

    Really inconsistent writing
    I honestly do not understand the praise I've seen for this show. It certainly has its good points. There were some moments that made me laugh out loud, and having a college setting, and going further into the relationship, those were all good things. But this show feels really inconsistent, especially with the writing.

    Kouko, the lead female character, starts out utterly unlikeable. She is ...

    A refreshing change of setting in anime rom-com
    First off, I'd like to really take a moment to appreciate an anime with an adult setting and adult characters. Sure, it is still school and each of the characters still depend on their parents, but it is still an appreciable improvement over the overused grade-school setting.

    If you're looking for a good, straightforward, give-the-people-what-they-want romantic comedy, then you've come to the ...

    Superb characters, great story
    First of all, the characters are really interesting. Each have their distinct behaviors and they grow familiar to you as you watch each episode.
    The romantic side is spot on: not too easy, not too hard. And the final episodes will just leave you agonizing about each decision that is being made on screen. Not all animes pull that off!
    Highly recommend this one!

  • One catharsis after another
    Golden Time will tug at your heart from every possible angle. Be prepared to cry from happiness, sadness, and some beautiful mixtures of both.

    Golden Time has some unconventional sequencing, but rest assured that by the end the pieces all fit together very well. Even better, it provides the viewer with one payoff after another. What really keeps it going is its incredible crafting of ...
