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.
Back in the 90's after watching the anime "Golden Boy" I could never understand why they never made more episodes? After all it was one of the best animated, and unique stories I had ever seen.
Well fast forward 20yrs, and thanks to the scary power of the internet I was finally able to read the manga...And now I know.
After chapter 5, things get really lewd really fast!
Part of the charm of the first 5 chapters and the Anime. Is that Kintaro never quite gets the girl, or so to say he gets the girl but leaves before he gets to score.
Unfortunately after chapter
5 there's an abrupt change in writing style. Kintaro not only gets the girl, and multiple girls, but he's also sometimes the girl with scenes of cross dressing, and being a BDSM slave.
I can't help wonder if the writer after chapter 5 was pressured by his editor to add more smut? Or if he was in collage taking a psychology 101 class? Either way, you'll either love the change or dislike it.
At the start I enjoyed the Kintaros ecchi adventures especially when he starts to get with the women. Throughout the manga you'll see different sorts of fetishes which can lead to hilarious moments, Since this is a sex filled world ntr is bound to happen, at first it didnt bother me, I was curious to see how Kintaro handled these situations most of them he handled terribly (depends on readers). Psychology is a topic in golden boy and all the way to the end this topic gets bigger and bigger, this is where the ntr gets out of hand, the author proceeds to justify his
views on human weakness side by side with ntr this is especially frustrating near the end of the manga. Now I don't know about you but i came here for comedy, plot and fap material. What I didn't expect was an argument on how being a cuck is good.
The author is the main problem of this comic book.
Reading the comic you notice - or at least to me it seemed so - that the author has filled every page of the comic with sex scenes and references to sex because it is fixed,
The whole comic book seems to be a self-justification for one's childhood ideas about society and sex. Pitiful.
At a certain point it becomes unnerving to read those childhood dialogues on sex and society, it is hoped only that the author decides not to talk about sex - even if only for a chapter-.
a work that wants to be mature, but that
seems to be made by a teenager who wants to make himself cool by adding petty ideas and petty philosophy.
sorry for the grammatical errors, I'm not very good in English.
So I'm a big fan of the OVA series that this Manga was based on and after watching it all over again one day when I was going through my favorite manga scan site this came up and I figured I'd give it a read and man was this something.
Before I get too into things I'd like to make note that every thing I look up on this seems to give the impression that after the first volume all this story does is devolve into porn and while yes there's a lot of sex and yes things get graphic beyond comprehension (Seriously if there was
an ecchi scale from 1 to 10 this would be a 14 this book both literally and metaphorically get's the fuck in there) I feel the need to inform you that the at times overwhelming amount of sex that happens in this story has a purpose it's just something I'll have to explain but like I've done before here's the TL;DR for those just scanning reviews:
This is an interesting look in the psychi of a free spirit as he explores a wide variety of topics from the worshiping of false idols, the meaning of life as he knows it, and the after effects of the people who's eyes he's opened to the wonderful mystery that is the world.
What we have here is the tale of a guy that wonders town to town doing odd jobs and getting into a series of perverted scenarios and while at the first volume is more a woman of the week affair similar to the 6 episode OVA at points just outright feeling like panels of the show it quickly devolves from that as it then turns into an overarching tale of large proportions.
Around the second volume is when we get a small glimpse into Kintaro's past and we start to learn that it's within his nature as a person to help others out and do what's best for them while still making sure to shove his dick into anyone that moves and of course making their lives better possibly because of that but this volume is where one of the first things this Manga's advantage over it's OVA counterpart really starts and that's it's overarching plot of characters with the introduction of Masamue Kongoji who for lack of a better way to word it is a metaphorical god that is the embodiment of the theme of manipulation through false hope and the desire for sheer comfort that we all have and that Kintaro is the polar opposite of and this arch continues on and off through the rest of the series only concluding at the very end which without spoiling too much leaves you at a loss for words.
There's an overarching theme of the same story getting told just taking longer and longer to get there throughout the 10 volumes and in between the most graphic of sex scenes you get a lot of moments where characters are giving really long monologues about a multitude of really series topics like the corrupt nature of government, how people are numbed to the harsh realities of their very futile existence of life through false idol worship, the fucked up nature of the educational system and how it doesn't actually teach but rather force us to follow someone else order and to put our own free thought on the back burner, and it even covers just how sex is both a true means of expression and a really easy way to manipulate an individual.
This manga is surprisingly deep and there's quite a bit of quality sections here and there with the biggest sting against this being the arch involving golden showers.
Kintaro as a character is a fascinating case study and when he was the focus this story was just the absolute best but I'd hate to say I can't really rate the story too high just because of the, "Golden Water," arch around Vol. 5 and a lot of the parts involving Naoko Katsuda who was already my least favorite character in the anime.
It's 90's manga and with that you have really solid environments, characters that are a lot closer to reality in terms of overall looks, the expression work on the characters faces are pretty funny, and the ladies....they aight you get more than enough *Cough* STUDYING material if you uh know what I'm saying.
I happen to like old anime visuals but if you don't knock my score down about half.
Best noble pervert ever, his first true love we meet near the end of the book is excellent, and everyone else does their job well with only a couple of people I wish would be thrown down a well.
Yes there was a good amount of awful people but the good one's make this story worth it.
I'm a be blunt this story dragged to high hell at a lot of points but when it hit ya it fucking hit ya and for me this was a just one more chapter kind of read where I found myself up late really wanting to go further and just keep reading and it's ending while a bit what the fuck felt just right for one of the most surprisingly deep things I've read in a while this story is a roller coaster of crazy that I can only really recommend to folks just wacky enough to read it but for everyone else I'd say be weary.
This story isn't just porn it gets the fuck in there trust me but it's actually a real story.
