This was pretty bad, this does not even come close to Golden Boy as far as I am concerned. My honest opinion, 45 minutes of my life that is now gone forever that I will never get back. As it is pretty old, I can forgive the quality of the animation, the story was as bad as it gets however. On a 10 scale this is about a 2 or 3, compared to Golden Boy which in my opinion was easily a solid 8 maybe even a 9.

Golden boy is a classic because many ages of audiences could watch it since it didnt do as much explicitly as Junk boy , not to mention the fact that golden boy was made later so the look was better ( more fluid and better drawn) and it had more episodes to build the characters so that a sense of empathy was created with the audience. But Junk boy is awsome because for a 80's anime it was true to male hormones and comedy, and on the real, it was hilarious then...and its still epic now!!! 7/10

as a true fan of golden boy, i watched this with a similar expectation and was extremely disappointed
it's not even about the animation quality. the story was just terrible :/ ryouhei was a perv from start to finish

the only redeeming part was his date with aki :L 4/10

Old but gold I must say! For an ecchi focused anime this wasn't half as bad as I expected it to be! It had some decent pacing and interesting characters and all in all a decent ending!

I don't even know why I watch this till the end.. It's pretty much about a perverted guy going around fucking/seducing different women (only one tho in the end) without really "earning" them.

I hated this, Golden Boy is a classic, this feels like a rip off which is ironic considering it was made before it. It feels similar to Sword for Truth compared to Ninja Scroll in that sense. It has nothing to do with it being old, it just sucked. Golden Boy was hilarious but also charming, Junk Boy wasn't funny at all and its attempts to be endearing were just hollow. Waste of time.

What the? You people are crazy! This anime is amazing! The pacing was a bit fast at times but I thought JUNK BOY was great! It's a complete masterpiece, It made me feel and cry.

Why would people compare this to Golden Boy? I'm kind of lost here

I enjoyed it, even though it was mindless fun. The MC actually had balls to do whatever he wanted, and still get away with it. However I didn't quite like the girls' reaction to his actions. For example, him creeping into the editor's house while naked, and actually attempting to rape her with her still making a joke on it, is kind of exaggerating.

I liked the heroine as well, Aki. She developed nicely and her relationship with the main character is the highlight of this anime. The sex scenes were actually well made too. Nice date as well lol

6/10 for the rating

So much negativity! Wow lol.

I'm an ecchi and fan service kind of guy so I really enjoyed this. The highlight as someone else mentioned was the MC's date with Aki. I liked the MC as well, probably because he reminded me of myself lol. All in all, I had a lot of fun watching this. Had a smile on my face the whole way through.

I'm not very far into this, but I just wanted to say so far for some reason I'm really liking this despite feeling like I should hate it.

Finished and I really liked this, it was dumb but charming at the same time, much like it's protagonist, lol.

Edit: went and watched the first episode of Golden Boy because so many people were comparing it to this. I guess I can see the similarities but really it's all superficial, they are really quite different characters despite both being energetic perverts. Also this is out and out boarderline hentai masquerading as ecchi, where Golden Boy is more a comedy adventure with ecchi as an element, quite different if you ask me.
