aww... i hate beeing the first person... so much more info to dig up!
Title: Golden Boy
Jap. Kanji: ゴールデンボーイ
Type: 6 OAVs (30 minutes each)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Ecchi
Companies: (KSS, Shueisha)
Kintaro, a 25 year student, wanders japan on his trusty bicycle in search for things to learn! he goes from part-time job to part-time job to assimilate a bit of everything he can...
Story = 7.5/10
Original, but not ground breaking... exceptionally good for a show made in the 80s tho 0_o; (shows were SO corney back then...)
Characters = 8.5/10
Altho not the perfect role-models, all the characters are love-able... Kintaro, the main character, has a very strong moral code and abides by it...(altho he IS cursed with a thing we call male hormones :P)
You will constantly see him writing down every little tidbit of information he gets... be it usefull or completely trivial... he is addicted to learning! And because of his odd personality, he is often mis-understood and put into very akward situations...
Art/Animation = 9/10
i was REALLY impressed with the quality of the animation in this anime! (well... considering its almost as old as i am!)
the beauty of it tho, is the body language! to this day, we VERY rarely c so much facial expression in characters! (and thus fits perfectly with the voice acting!)
Voice acting = 8.5/10
very fitting. as i said above, fits perfectly with visuals and the situation.
Music = 5/10
80s music really hurt this anime... you'll understand what i mean if you watch an episode...
Overall! = 8.5/10
Most often, HISTERICAL!
BUT!!!! i must enforce that this anime ISNT for younger audiences! this is really 17+ stuff! i loved this anime... but found it to end too abruptly... maybe it was cancelled? im not all too sure... the last episode does give SOME closure... but leaves you wondering what happens next... which always hurts an anime...
