Storyline

Golden Boy is the story of Kintaro Oe, a twenty-five-year-old in pursuit of life's lessons. A brilliant student, he dropped out of Tokyo Universiy's law program because he had had mastered the entire curriculum. Now he lives a simple life, traveling on his bicycle and working numerous part-time jobs ranging from software companies to noodle restaurants in order to learn everything that he can about the world. Although he's a kind and giving person, Kintaro's only weakness lies in his lust for beautiful women. However, as long as he can control himself, he may just manage to save the day, and win a few hearts in the process. Written by Anonymous

Anime at it's best!
10 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

For years, I have been looking for anime that is humorous. This is it. This is the best [not to mention funniest] anime I have ever seen, Some other anime videos are funny because they are just so stupid, but this is funny because it's clever and original. It is offensive and I didn't mind that. However, I do hope they come out with a toned down version so that I can show it to some of my younger friends.
