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 can be best summed up with two words: love hurts.

Of course, this could be an overstatement because love is supposed to bring joy and wonder. But what happens when the past comes back to haunt you? What happens when you’re caught in the middle of a love triangle where someone is bound to be hurt? It’s a tough world in where we live in and nothing should be taken for granted. Golden Time serves as a great example of an anime that explores relationships at a level dealing with the basic human nature and what it stands for based on love.

In a world where romantic comedies simply use formulas that are tried and true, J.C. Staff brings us Golden Time. This is a story about Tada Banri, a student that had an accident after highschool graduation and lost all his memories prior to that, and the shenanigans that ensue during his first year at college. But is this really any different from anything we've seen in the past?

The original source material is written by the same author as Toradora! - which is the best romantic comedy I've seen to date - and has a similar style of comedy and story telling. One thing that 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.
