Synopsis

Kintarou Ooe is a specialist in part-time work, riding all over the highways and byways of Japan on his trusty steed, the Mikazuki 5, and finding employment wherever he can. His adventures bring him knowledge and experience that can't be taught in a classroom, from political corruption to the delicacy of a young woman's heart. With nothing but the open road before him—not to mention the many beautiful women along the way—Kintarou pursues his spirit of education while attempting to hold down his various odd jobs, however undignified they may be. As he learns from each task he takes on, who knows what could happen? He might even be able to save the world one day. One thing is for sure—this will all be very educational!

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 read more

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.

Golden Boy is a great classic and i thought that i wouldn't like it for some reason, i didn't have high expectation for this to be a masterpiece but it isn't because is too short and at least should be like Kyo Kara Ore Wa with 10 eps. of 40 min. each, but because i really was hooked to this and never got bored i think it's a great anime overall.

Golden Boy is one of those OVA series that, if you were watching anime in the 90s, you’d probably fondly remember. And for the most part, it holds up very well. This review will be talking about the English dub, so if you’re not a dub watcher, go check out another review. I should mention off the bat however that the English dub is actually really good. Doug Smith is hilarious as Kintaro in a way I can’t describe. I’d urge you to give the dub a go just to see if you’d like it, and if you don’t, go ahead and watch the original read more
