Golden Time Episode 17 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 17 – Return to Yesterday Everybody carries some scars from the past, some more literal than others, but real or not they define who we are today, for better or worse. Tada Banri is a unique case, in that he bears both and yet the vast majority of them have been lost to the flow of the river that took the Banri of the past as if by a Viking funeral. Since then, Banri has b...

Golden Time Episode 16 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 16 – Wakeup Call In this life there is a never-ending list of things that can catch you completely off guard, but few compare to the enormity of a car crash. Not only is there the damage to the car to consider, but there is your passengers, the people around you, and sometimes worst of all, your confidence. Last episode, Kouko put all of her friends in danger by falling a...

Golden Time Episode 15 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 15 – Accident Beach Oh snap! Remember what I said about beach episodes being fun last week? Well, it appears I may have been misguided. Beach episodes are fun, but only if you’re not being haunted by the bitter ghost of your past, determined to destroy everything that you love by any means necessary. From the very beginning, it looked like the whole world was conspi...

Golden Time Episode 14 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 14 – Ladies Talk Within the anime subculture there is a fairly common, slightly jaded view that all girls in anime are clean and pure which is one of the most frequently given reasons why people become very heavily invested in the 2D world. This is partly because in the vast majority of cases, anime that become extremely popular rarely ever feature sex, even those that thrive o...

Golden Time Episode 13 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 13 – Summer Has Come “Prepare yourself…” The ghost of Banri has been angered and his wrath shall be felt! All lingering sympathy that you may have had for Banri’s old self went straight out of the window this episode as he declared that he would have his revenge on his current self for abandoning Linda and rejecting his existence last episode. While that...

Golden Time Episode 12 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 12 – Don’t Look Back Lovers of romance anime have historically always been in conflict with each other, trying to prove that their favourite pairing is the best or ‘true’ pairing that the creator envisioned. It is not surprising, therefore, that creators often shy away from giving a real answer about who they intended to be the true couple at risk of ali...

Golden Time Episode 11 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 11 – Trouble Party Money troubles – We’ve all had them, we all hate them, and as a student I know them far too well. In fact, after fate tried to do math by adding my laptop to a pint of ginger ale, putting me nearly a grand into the red, you could say that I’ve become a bit of an expert on them lately. If it weren’t for my lovely family fattening me up ...

I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday with your families and didn’t over-stuff yourself like I most certainly did.

Golden Time Episode 9 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 9 – With You Again Before I kick off my impressions of episode 9, I would like to apologise for the 4 week delay that came as a result of my PC having an unfortunate run in with a glass of ginger ale. Needless to say, when it is actually possible to pour myself a delicious beverage from one of my fans, the chances of it functioning for long enough to watch the episode, le...

Golden Time Episode 8 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 8 – Reset Another week, another sensational episode of my favourite romance of the year, Golden Time. This week’s episode served mainly as a fascinating insight into our main character, Tada Banri and the first thing that I noticed that I had never paid much attention to before is his weird habit of running away whenever he doesn’t want to confront something. Not ju...

Golden Time Episode 7 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 7 – Masquerade Golden Time has finally gotten into its stride and all the parts have fallen into place. We have passed the quarter-way mark and now the real race begins. One only has to look at Gurren Lagann to see a great series become a million times better after reaching this stage so I am tingling at the prospect of what Golden Time holds in store for us. Bravely marc...
