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.

Golden Time to me represents a reality that some have faced. There is guilt, loss of one's self, selfishness, one-sided love, jealousy, etc. that drives the plot to seem like a real person's life.
Some parts of this is still of the somewhat supernatural, but it just adds to the story that even though we can't prove that somethings are still/were there, it does not mean that they never existed and have disappeared just b/c we cannot see or feel them.

The plot is filled with possible ships, being good for those fangirls and boys. Although it has not yet been concluded, every episode is filled read more

Every once in a while, you watch something bad that doesn't feel like a total waste of time, because it's just so bad that you learn from it exactly what you never want to see from any form of media again. Or teaches you exactly what NOT to do if you write something yourself.

Golden Time was honestly such a terrible experience that it was almost rewarding.

The entire show was like an empty shell; you could keep looking long and hard for a pearl as much as you wanted and nothing but disappointment would surface. I give them credit for at least trying to escape the 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 were aired at the same time
-Both heavily focused on romance and drama, with a touch of fantasy for NnA.
-shippers would actually have a bit of a hard time discerning who their favorite pair is
-both are set (not focused) in schools

Now this is where its different. you got a group of adults and a group of kids, but both groups have problems that are opposite of their age group. the "adults" are wishy-washy, cry a lot, and have problems kids could take care of. The "kids" on the other hand are way mature, actually have more sense to their thoughts and actions, and have more solid personalities, not something flaky like the salt flake snow.
