Golden Boy is about a twenty five year old guy, named Kintaro, who had completed all credits for college but dropped out right before graduation. He has decided to study all he can learn about life. He now specializes himself in day-dreaming, temporary part time jobs dealing with different areas of interest, and lets not forget, beautiful girls. Kintaro travels on his trusty pink bicycle, keeping notes about what he learns about life in his notebook, and living his life in the happiest of ways. Kintaro is a very caring guy, always trying to help out and learn new things from different people. Even though people try underestimate him during the series, they can only to be proved how great and determined Kintaro can be, aside of his naughty little toilet fetish. Each episode he gets a new job, finding himself in the difficult situations, and always managing to have a gorgeous woman involved in the story.
Golden Boy is an anime with really no plot what so ever, but for some reason, it just made me love it even more. The whole time it just focuses on Kintaro going from temporary job to temporary job always finding these beautiful women, with different stories to each episode. I laughed so hard on this anime, I cried. The animation was good for the most part; it would go from extreme detail to kindergarten drawing, which just made it even more ridiculously funny. The one and only main character, being Kintaro, had great development; he was very expressive, emotional, determinative, crazily kind person with high value. You just couldn’t help but love him, even with his toilet fetish and perverted ways.
I loved the different aspects they show during the series about life and people always in the funniest of ways. The music was good, I loved the opening theme. I also loved how they show him traveling on his bicycle in the opening, I don’t know why, and I can’t really tell you why, but I just loved it. The English dub version was pretty good, so I would say you could watch it subbed or dubbed. I think in the English dub, his voice talent expressed him better, and just matched his personality better.
The sense of humor is very sexual and perverted, which can be offensive to the people who don’t find that sense of humor appropriate. I personally find implication of this type of comical humor hilarious.
I think if you have a perverted sense of humor, you will really love this anime. It has brief nudity, not really that it has a lot of sex, or nudity, but the strong sexual humor taints this anime!!! Golden Boy is for the mature audience, eighteen and older. Even though this is a mature anime, it will bring tears to your eyes it is so comical. I would say, if you like Golden Boy, I would also recommend you to take the time and watch GTO, Great Teacher Onizuka, which is some what on the same level of humor, and reminded me a lot of each other.
Golden Boy anime review by realanimefan.
First of all, you have to be a little open minded if you want to fully enjoy this story. Second be prepared for some perverted moments. Third, if you've overcome the first two get ready to laugh your butt OFF!!!!
Guys might enjoy this series a lot more than women would, and i being a guy of course enjoyed, no loved this anime series. I found it hilarous and entertaining. The main character Kintaro Oe is one of my favorite anime guys of all time, he seems to be able to say or do the things that all guys think or do and like most guys that live, he's clueless, but some how everything works out for him in the end no matter what he does which is what all guys really would like to screw up fix it and make your self look good, while all the girls fall madly in love with him! The old time theroy of Japenes is much better than English is almost always correct accept for this anime me having seen both japenese and english have to say the english is way better and even funnier, they were able to capture Kintaro's personality so much better in Englsh than in Japenese so I suggest watching thsi in English you won't be disapointed I promise! I only wished they made more anime series like this. The one thing that really peterbed me beyond madness was the fact that they only have 6 episodes and trust me you want more, this series leaves at a wanting state. Overall I would suggest this series to anyone even girls who can deal with some perverted moments! read more
GTO and Golden Boy are extremely similar in style and humor - both feature honest and hardworking leads who will go to great lengths to make a difference in another person's life. And both are prone to trouble, especially when women are involved.
The two shows have their differences though - they're similar enough that I'm absolutely sure anyone who enjoys one should watch the other, but not so similar that either feels like a ripoff.
Very similiar main lead, art style and humor.
Golden Boy and GTO have similar humor and style. When I watched GTO I kept thinking about how it reminded me of Golden Boy. Both of these animes deal with comical perverted guys who you just can't help but love.
The same humor and style. Main characters: Eikichi and Kintaro are very similar.
There both funny as hell!!!
Onizuka Eikichi from GTO and Oe Kintaro from Golden Boy are very similar characters. That goes for their personalities and even applies to things such as the facial expressions they make. They are both perverted guys who act goofy most of the time but when it comes down to it, they always deliver and save the day.
The art and animation style for the these series are also very similar and the same goes for the style of the voice actors.
Story-wise, Golden Boy is very episodic. Each episode is about a completely different scenario while in GTO the story is ongoing from beginning to end. Of course this makes sense seeing as how Golden Boy is a 6 episode OVA while GTO is a 43 episode series.
Overall, it is impossible to watch both titles and not see the similarities as they apply to the characters, the art and animation, and the style of humor.
Consider both titles under the category of "must watch".
Golden Boy and Great Teacher Onizuka has a similar style and humour and the main guys is just so similar in every way and yeah they make the same facial expressions lol...
Both have very funny main characters as well as multiple problems with no real goal almost being episodic ,both are perverts and have similar art style.
Both of the protagonists are very similar, and both have their own ways of solving problems that they have. Golden Boy is very cerebral and plays dumb under the mask of a pervert, while actually solving problems and 'studying'. Onizuka uses a certain amount of wit, but also relies on his past experience as a biker and gang leader to gain respect from his students, who rebel against him. Both have great comedy moments, but also touch on serious topics, although more so in GTO.
Both Golden Boy and Great Teacher Onizuka have the same kind of warm animation style and they both feature humorous male leads who frequently have all sorts of escapades involving women. If you liked Golden Boy's sort of humour, you will find more of it from GTO.
Additionally, if you liked Golden Boy but wish to see something with a more solid plot, this is a good candidate.
Both of the series involve a pervy protagonist who happens to get himself in loads of trouble but always gets away learning something or teaching something to someone else. Both protagonist make the most ridiculous faces that add to the charm of the series. If you like the brand of humor that Onizuka has, then golden boy is a great companion to the type of humor. Both are very inspiring and have a great spirit that make them a great watch. Sadly the series is a bit short but very worthy of a try.
Slice of life, ~18-25 age group of main characters, male lead characters, mature themes, both have a lot of comedy, and voluptuous females.
Extremely similar characters.
If you like one then you will like the other.
It's not like the series are similar in plot, but the sense of humour is analogous. Since Golden Boy is only an OVA, you won't waste much time if you happen to don't like it at all. While Onizuka Eikichi is actually a dumb ass (which is fine with me), Kintaro Oe is rather an intriguing character and one doesn't exactly know which on he is - a smart genius or a dumb ass as well. If you liked GTO, you might try to watch Golden Boy.
GTO and Golden Boy both are similar in humor. Both have an honest, hardworking main character who will go to great lengths to make a difference in another person's life. Mostly women.
GTO and Golden Boy are both my favorite anime ^o^ there are both funny and have sweet story line ^_^
if you finished golden boy and wanted more, GTO is what your looking for
Golden Boy is some of the most baller S**t i have ever seen, but it is incredibly short. I feel as if GTO captured Golden Boys message, but is a lot deeper and longer.
Both are some of the funniest anime you will ever find. I just couldn't stop laughing. When your done you'll feel sad because its all over.
Well, these two series definitely shares some similarities. For instance, the main male protagonist is portrayed as a perverted guy. However at the same time, they are honest and truly wishes to help the people they meet.
Both series' main male protagonist also gets into various situations with women. Initially their outlook on the mc is disgust but later on seems to view him in a different light.
There's a lot of catchy dialogues in both series that is humorous. The old school style artwork also gives similiar vibes. There is also some fan service in both series.
Both main characters are perverts go horny over any girls with ba-donk-a-donks
There both Aspiring..
In GTO the main character Onizuka wants to be the greatest teacher while in Golden boy the main character likes to study study study study by going around japan learning new things, meeting new people, and taking alot of part time jobs
Both shows are great
Both have a funny humor to them, i would recommend these to everyone who wants a good laugh. Cheers.
Great Teacher Onizuka and Golden Boy are a like since they both have the same type of perverted humor. Both mains are extreme trouble makers and perverts.
The situations that the main characters go through may differ, but the way they act throughout the episodes and they way they solve other people's problems are nearly identical.
"Learn, learn, learn!" is the motto of Kintaro Oe, a law school drop-out who goes on a quest to travel across Japan on his bike, to gain knowledge. Both shows largely focus on the comedic, weird experiences and life lessons derived from them.
just ridiculous pervy episodic comedy to make you feel warm inside
It has the same atmosphere and similar characters, except in GTO the protagonist is a teacher, and in golden boy it's a super fast learner. Same genre, same art style, both main characters are cool and funny at the same time in their own way, which is good. I personally prefered golden boy as an anime, shame it's only 6 episodes, although you can always read the manga of which there is a lot of. Golden boy used the "arc an episode" format so it's better suited as a -relaxing, switch off brain and be happy- anime because you don't need to follow a particularly long plot. GTO does the same thing occasionally too though, just not the whole time. I highly recommend both.
Both are comedy about a perverted guy and his escapades. Both have old style animation. Difference is that one MC is a teacher while the other one is just travelling around the world.
Similar art and comedy.Both will make you laugh a lot A LOT
well both are very similar in allot of ways
* both are strong and willing to take a beating to help some out
* both have perverted minds
* both should be never underestimated
* both are good good hearted
* they both teach people that there better than what they think
* both have funny ass face's
* both are from the mid to late 90
* golden boy is a little bit more ecchi
* GTO Story is set in one place most of the time
* Golden boy almost has a harem
* GTO wish he had harem lol
* GTO rides a Motorcycle
* Golden Boy ride's a Mountain Bike
Onizuka and kintaro are protagonist fom the two series, the two share quite the similarities with both being a total perverted maniac who looks like idiot from the eyes of others. But as the story progresses others begins to doubt their despise and sees them as a kind of heroes.
