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

This is one of the funniest anime series ever!
30 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

I am a woman, and I found Golden boy to be absolutely hilarious. I guess I could be offended by the fact that most of the female characters are portrayed as scantily-clad sex objects, but men could be just as offended by the main male character, Kintaro, who makes all men seem like sex-crazy dorks. Just don't take the show too seriously. It does have a lot of animated nudity and dirty sex jokes, so don't watch it if that type of thing offends you. Also, I suggest watching it in the english dub rather than subtitled, because the english voice of Kintaro is much funnier than the japanese voice.
