So, I just finished Golden Time for the first time. Here are my thoughts.
*2D-kun best girl
*I think the second OP is the best anime OP ever. I just feel it encapsulates the show and Koko’s character so well. Speaking of…
*I’m in love with the Koko
*It’s kinda hard not to compare Golden Time to Toradora given both are by the same person. With that being said, I think Toradora is better for a couple reasons. First, Golden Time didn’t have a standout episode a la the Christmas bear episode. It had some phenomenal episodes, like the car episode and the episode where Banri and Koko are honest with each other, but nothing I would say was best of all time.
Second, a lot of the Golden Time characters didn’t really have development. In fact, the only characters that did were Banri, Koko, and Nana. Golden Time has a cast full of memorable characters. However, I don’t feel a lot of them were fully developed like the Toradora cast were. I mean, Ms. Yuri, a secondary character in Toradora, was more fully fleshed out than a character like Mitsuo and Linda. Both Mitsuo and Linda are good characters in my opinion, but I feel they could have had more character development.
*I think Golden Time had a better, more fulfilling ending than Toradora.
*Golden Time has a lot of similarities to Bunny Girl Senpai. Both have a plot involving around a character who has amnesia and there’s this conflict where their past memories are coming back and their current memories will be erased. However, I feel Bunny Girl Senpai did it better.
*Koko and Banri make such a cute couple.
*Fuck Ghost Banri
Overall, I enjoyed the show a lot. I’d give it an 8 out of 10. Is it the masterpiece that Toradora is? No. However, it’s very enjoyable and has a lot of memorable characters. Also, once again, that second OP is in my opinion the best OP of all time.
