Golden Time Episode 3: Wolf in Sheep Clothing


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    Things are going to get more interesting from now on ;)

    If you liked the end of ep3, you’re on the right train with this anime.

    I do wonder about Linda’s connection to Banri. Seems pretty confirmed it was her who found him when he was wandering around in that flashback/dream in episode 2. So I guess the question is if she was actually his girlfriend, just a friend, or a complete stranger. I’d probably lean to the second category, though maybe a friend who did have feelings for him. Either way it makes sense. She is pretty shaken by the revelation about his condition and how he doesn’t know her at all. So she goes far away to school to get away from it all. He takes a year in rehab and for his own reasons goes all the way out there.

    I actually like how they are handling Banri’s condition. His behavior and thoughts make sense. All he knows is who he is now so of course he’s not eager to just regain his memories and maybe lose his current self. Probably came to school out here to get away from those friends and family that wanted him to be someone he wasn’t anymore.

    Kouko’s development will be interesting to see. The transition to becoming a whole person without Mitsuo though right now she feels that person is incomplete. Can this be done without her becoming dependent on Banri like before? Can Kouko be Kouko while falling for someone different?

    Personally I enjoyed the series from the start. But agree, viva the 3 episode rule!

      I agree with how well they are handling Banri’s condition. For me, it adds that depth that I felt was lacking in the first episode. I do hope Banri will be able to help her make that transition to independence. I believe Kaga has the ability to be herself while falling for someone else, but as she is right now, but it’s a matter of her believing that she can do it. Actually more accurately, I think she needs to do a bit of self reflection when she’s alone. As long as she believes that she is worthless without Mitsuo or anyone for that matter, she will stay that way. This is where Banri can help her out by being supportive and giving her a sense of direction and letting her know she’s not alone in this and she does matter.
