I really enjoyed this manga! Although my Japanese is probably so-so and it's likely I didn't understand the finer points if the dialogues, I understood the story and I could tell it was very well-done for its genre.

The art was very consistent (if you liked the art in just about any panel or even on the cover you'll probably like it throughout the entire manga) and had an appealing clean feel. The character development was really satisfactory, and my favourite part of this manga was getting deeper into the characters and seeing their feelings change and grow. The pace is gradual, not too slow and read more

Ah, Golden Days. When I first finished this series, I thought of it as quite good, but I simply could not get it out of my head. I continued to ponder over the questions about life and death that this manga brought up, until I eventually raised my score to a 10. I don't give 10's lightly.

The plot of Golden Days seems, on its surface, a bit silly. There are plenty of ludicrous media out there that use time travel as a gag device, to pull a character into amusing or exciting circumstances without dealing with the implications of such a plot device. Golden Days read more

I was not expecting to love this manga so much. I liked it after I read it, but the more I thought about it the more I loved it. I think it is my favorite manga, and I can't imagine a better manga, now that I have read it. It feels perfect, and there's nothing I would change about it.

My grandmother died when I was fifteen. Perhaps this is part of the reason this manga touched me so much. Mitsuya is faced with losing his beloved grandfather at around the same age.

More than ten years after she died, I found a scrapbook from her college read more

I just finished reading the manga last night. It's been around 15 hours since then and I still have this weird feeling of fuzziness about it. I can't exactly pinpoint what it was about the manga that moved me so, the story line was okay and had a few plot holes, the characters were not exactly intense and deep - but I enjoyed the entire series so much that I didn't notice that I'd read 33 chapters when I tapped on my screen to check my progress. That's saying something given that I've been drowning myself in mediocre and sub-par shoujo for a while read more
