Synopsis

Tada Banri, a newly admitted student at a private law school in Tokyo, found himself completely lost after the opening ceremony, trying to find his way to the freshman orientation. At that moment, he ran into another lost freshman from the same school, Yanagisawa Mitsuo, and they hit it off at once. Somehow arriving at their intended goal just on time, there appeared in front of the two a beautiful girl holding a bouquet of roses. The girl then whacked Mitsuo across the face with the bouquet and handed the flowers over to him. "Freshman, congratulations," was all she said, and then left. The stylish, well dressed, perfect woman that had swung at Mitsuo was his childhood friend, Kaga Kouko. As children they had promised to marry each other one day, fulfilling their dreams. In order to escape from her, Mitsuo had gone out secretly and taken the examination for this well known private college, but now she showed up in the freshman orientation hall. She too had taken the law school entrance examination, catching up with him there.

It makes me sad to see such negative reviews in the two review spots. This is definitely one of my favorite romantic anime out there. Yes, the whole amnesia plotline is rather wonky. Yes, the characters can be a bit overdramatic (although honestly, it's nothing I haven't seen in real life). But what really gets me is people claiming this show lacks depth. I firmly believe that this show has some of the most well-written characters I've ever seen. In fact, I think the people saying this show lacked depth just missed all the nuances (which, granted, were at times hard to see. But once read more

Disclamer: it is my opinion that your experiences in real life relationships will greatly affect your enjoyment of this show. As a married man with a kid and a few dramatic college relationships in my past, to me this show was an awesome representation of the ups and downs of a real relationship in college/adulthood. But those of you who are younger and inexperienced in love may not be able to appreciate the story as a whole. If you are skeptical then take everything after this with a grain of salt.

Golden time is a great example of a potential classic that is read more

Toradora! has the same creator as Golden Time, meaning there is significant overlap between the two shows. Golden Time is best described as the second iteration of Toradora! The plots of the two shows are highly similar, despite the characters in the shows being dramatically different. Toradora! though is by far the superior product, with intriguing characters and better writing. Some of the pronounced problems with Golden Time, such as fast pacing and possessing overly-dramatic characters, are absent from Toradora! Toradora! is much slower, centers around younger (more mature) characters, and well-timed dramatic moments.
Both have boys and girls have a different relationship between and both have same romantizm atmosphere. Also friendship is getting stronger day by day.
