Kintarou Ooe is a specialist in part-time work, riding all over the highways and byways of Japan on his trusty steed, the Mikazuki 5, and finding employment wherever he can. His adventures bring him knowledge and experience that can’t be taught in a classroom, from political corruption to the delicacy of a young woman’s heart. With nothing but the open road before him—not to mention the many beautiful women along the way—Kintarou pursues his spirit of education while attempting to hold down his various odd jobs, however undignified they may be. As he learns from each task he takes on, who knows what could happen? He might even be able to save the world one day. One thing is for sure—this will all be very educational!

I have episodically reviewed three excellent anime’s to completion. You’ve got the excellent cult classic of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The deep, philosophical and scary Shiki, and last, but not least… golden boy.

Golden boy is brilliant, I like it so much. It’s somehow able to have a deep philosophical message with great ideas every episode and constant fan service at the exact same time. It’s honestly the best mix of anything you will ever come across in your entire life time!

I can’t honestly say that the deep themes and ideas will be noticeable to an everyday person on the surface, you need a high IQ to understand golden boy… yeah… So if the meaning is lost on you then check out the episode reviews!

Each episode Kintaro (one of the best protagonists in anime ever) meets a new hot girl while living a job as a freeder and involves himself with her in some way causing her to fall in love with him. Then kintaro leaves and the girl embarks on a quest to travel the world in an attempt to find him.

On the surface this isn’t a great premise but it’s the mastery of the details and plot that goes on which really makes the show great. You just have to trust me with this one. Watch the whole dam thing, then read the episode reviews if you don’t get it, then read the episode reviews anyway!
