otakunick retro reviews (golden boy)

hey guys im back with more free time thanks to me losing my job so you know what that means... thats right im going to have no time to do reviews cause il be spending all my time looking for work... just kidding it means you guys are in store for more reviews and to start things off how about a review on a anime from the mid 90s when my life was focused more on how i was going to pass my eng test not tiring to find work to feed myself and oddly enough this anime is about a guy who takes studding to a new extremes thats right today i review golden boy

golden boy aired Oct 27, 1995 to Jun 28, 1996 and was a 6 ep OVA and was the brain child of Egawa, Tatsuya whos other works include Power Dolls and Tokyo Daigaku Monogatari nether of witch i have seen but have been looking for

now for the story Kintarou Oe doesn't look like it, but he is a genius who completed all his university courses and then quit before graduating. He becomes a wandering student, going from place to place on his bicycle, seeking to learn what he can about life, the world, and women. He is willing and able to do any job he has to prove himself. His travels take him to a variety of locations and a variety of women, each who learns to love the hardworking guy, but not before he can run off. i know this probably dos not sound to interesting but it plays out much better and much funny-er and if you dont believe me just watch the DVD trailer

as for the art its has more income with late 80s anime then the stuff that was coming out in the 90s witch i think works in the show benefit i dont think the show would look as good if it had the same art as tenchi muyo or sum thing like that all the charters are properly proportioned except when they do sum thing outrageous for comedic value and i love the detail and color pallet they put into each frame you can rely tell how hard the animators worked on it

i cant say much on the voice work because i saw this dubbed and well lets just say the eng dub barley gets a pass the cast tires hard but thars just sum thing missing but over all i have to say go and watch this anime its short funny and you can get the full series for less then 40$
