Golden Time eps 7 & 8: even if you don’t remember… care

Episode 7

Well this show starts off on quite the buzz-kill.  As last episode’s confession is quickly turned into a “civil” situation as the kid who had his bike stolen by Koko catches up to the new lovers with police officer in tow.  Fortunately enough, she gets off with paper work and a … a call to her parents? Honestly.  The way this show is structured, I have trouble figuring out the differences between this college setting and high school. Read more…

Golden Time ep6: this is all happening so fast!

The difference between real feelings and forced feelings couldn’t be starker in this episode.  Also, I couldn’t be happier to witness the death of the “friendzone” in this episode.  Take note guys, the “friendzone” isn’t a wall you climb over – it’s something you bust through!  And you do it with the guts of a man!  A real man!

Golden Time ep5: ghosts and prisons

Well, things are off to a fine start this episode. After the revelation that Banri has known Linda since high school, he rushes to the bridge to see if it can jog any of his memories, but that fails. And when Mitsuo calls him, he starts crying.

*Sheesh!* Read more…

Golden Time ep4: heart to heart, or knife to heart?

October 27, 2013 1 comment

You can warn and warn people all you want, but you can’t break someone’s reality easily. They have to accept it as a lie, through some sort of hard evidence. And even then, there’s a risk of relapse at the slightly provocation. In this episode, it’s time for Koko to come to grips with a hard fact. Mitsuo doesn’t love her. He doesn’t even like her. And Banri may have to come to grips with something similar. The strangers in his life may know him better than he knows himself. Read more…

Golden Time ep3: the difference between being lonely and alone

October 19, 2013 1 comment

So this is the episode where Banri and Koko go on their club trip together. Man, what is up with these college clubs? Why the hell do they all seem so desperate and aggressive? As soon as they show up to pick everyone up, they’re shoved into vans and sent on their way. At least with 2D-kun (from the Tea Club’s crazy party) also there, the two of them have someone else to talk to.  Though I’m sure this will just be one of those episodes where they have fun, see a bear and talk about their pasts.  Nothing too bad right?

Golden Time ep2: beware the drunk bimbos!

October 12, 2013 1 comment

When I first started watching this episode, the question I had in my head was whether Koko was lonely, or willfully alone.  Though to my thankful surprise, that question is completely answered by the end of this episode.  What I’m finding are characters with layers and personalities, and aside from Koko, they’re rather subtle ones, too.  Though in the case of Koko again, I’m left with a new question, is she just selfish or incredibly idealistic?

Check-in Station: Golden Time ep1 (I want to fall in love – with this show)

My first impressions during the first few minutes of this show was that it felt really good to see anime characters with problems I could more relate to. Problems like living on your own and finding your way around a city or college for the first time, and just trying to find a comfortable spot to fit in at with other people.  My further impressions of the show are that this could potentially be the show I enjoy watching the most.  Yeah, I’m kind of high on this show right now.
