Ooe Kintarou is a Tokyo University Law School dropout. However, he had completed all the course work needed to graduate before leaving school. Since then, he has wandered through many jobs all over Japan as a student of life with little more than a journal, a pen, and his trusty mountain bike (the Mikazuki 5). On his journeys, he runs into various compromising situations with beautiful women, and he must use his unique talents as a jack-of-all-trades to survive, let alone have a chance to find his true calling in life. But he is far more skilled than he appears, and he is determined to succeed no matter what he does. He could be the man who will save Japan—no, the world... or maybe not. Packed with hilarious hi-jinks, lots of ecchi, ramen noodles, gracious kindness, and even some toilet hugging, Golden Boy is full of non-stop fun.

Mixed Feelings
After watching the OVA, I was surprised that this manga had many chapters not yet animated and was keen on reading it. Unfortunately, my expectations were shattered when I read past the first chapters.
This manga starts off strong and surprisingly inspirational, Kintaro is a hard working man who studies life itself, at least in the first chapters, it does have its charm. But then came the rest of the manga and it took a complete turn for the worse, instead of Kintaro learning about life while hopping from different part time jobs, it becomes a storm of fetishes and the authors weird projections and insecurities. ...

Golden Boy is the worst manga I've ever read. While I wouldn't really want to recommend it in general, I think that reading at least some part of this could still be entertaining because of just how weird it is.

And this manga is very, very weird. I personally did not love the anime, so I started reading the manga with no prior information hoping that it would get better. Instead, the manga only gets worse the more you read it. It reached a point where I was physically cringing during almost every chapter, and I had to take multiple breaks from reading because it was ...
