kind of boring ^^?

The truth is, i thought it was kind of boring and dropped it after vol.3... Though characters are nice, I don't get why it scored so many high ratings. Though I also don't get why I didn't like it that much. Maybe because for me it looked like this manga was mostly focused on historical details and lacked passion and love. Jin's feeling seemed not to change much till vol.4 - he is always the same towards Mitsuya, Mitsuya's thoughts are mostly about the differences between eras and people in general. I just don't see this thin red thread, linking them together ^^;
But manga had some good points, and historical moments were interesting too.

this was the first shounen-ai manga that i read, and it was a great one to start with. The plot is generic, but its nicely executed, all the characters are pretty believable (i like the protagonist too, he was realistic and not the typical hero). This is not a happy manga though, i felt really bad for all of the characters, and it was heart breaking when

Mitsuya realizes what going to happen in the future, with the great kanto earthquake and WWII about to hit japan.
Overall, its a emotional, realistic (as much as it can be), and i recommend it.

Now that i've read more BL, i hope there will be more shounen-ai scenes as the romance progresses

I went through hell to look for the rest of the volumes. I can't contain myself after reading Chap 24 (of Vol 5)! I just had to look for the raw and finish the series. And after many hours of browsing the net, I finally found them!!! I've finished all 8 volumes and I'm going to read it all over again. This is one of those manga with a great story, wonderful characters, some witty scenes with a little unexpected side to the plot. I can't believe I missed this manga until now...! What have I been doing?

I read the final chapter... when this guy hand the knight chess to Mitsuya, I burst into tears instantaneously. It was really painful. Things... just had to end this way. If only Mitsuya was able to stay with Jin... aaaaahhh I'm getting teary again, thinking about it.

I remember read this manga 3 years ago, in my dormitory room and my roommate got worries when i suddenly crying so hard. I hardly read all this series, i'm just read the final book and feel so sad. And then 3 years later, i mean today... my Golden Days series arrive, i bought it 3 days ago in internet. I read it... and crying again. I wonder why i'm not read all the book back then?


The most great story for shonen ai... the most beautiful relationship. The awesome plot story. And it make me enthusiasm to become a great mangaka. Someday. smile
Must read.

This manga will make you cry. It's epicly good. The only reason I registered to this website, is to rate this series a 10. The art is beautiful, the characters are three-dimensional and the story is very good. This manga will definitely touch your heart.

I usually don't write reviews but I just had to for this series.

I finally finished reading this yesterday and.. wow. No manga has ever moved/touched me as much as this one. I cried so much my tears wouldn't come out anymore.. and then I cried some more. The characters are all so lovable and the ending is very unpredictable (I read somewhere that someone said you could guess how the story ends by the end of chapter 1.. that's not true.) The art is wonderful and there are absolutely no "filler" chapters. I'm pretty sure the author planned out every single detail before starting the series (which is awesome!)

I definitely recommend this series, but if you get upset easily and/or can empathize well with the characters, you might want to reconsider. The ending is VERY sad. (See Klein's review) But there are also lots of funny and heartwarming moments in the manga as well.

To all the people who made fun of the cover art: you are missing out on one of the greatest mangas ever (in my opinion of course!) Don't judge a book by its cover, give it a try! smile

Edit: @calstine, I wouldn't exactly dismiss the BL as unrequited ^^;;

I just finished reading the last volume and have followed this series through the years. I agree with some people when they say the cover does the story and art no justice, but then again, there is something very poignant about its simplicity as well. I remember just a couple of months back, while at Kinokuniya, a group of girls were making fun of its chinese title, saying that it looks and sounds like some old grandpa comic. I wanted to point out that yes it is indeed a story about a grandfather in fact, but it is also something that goes deeper than just its title, its cover, its art. But to do so seemed like I demeaned the story, because it didn't need defending at all. I've read manga for over a decade, spanned wide genres and own thousands. This is special. It left me fragile but wiser, sadder but nostalgic, but most of all appreciative. I didn't get this until I read the whole story in its entirety, and I don't think any spoiler should turn you away from this.

Waw the art was so soft and ROMANTIC and make you feel yourself flowing in it...
As you can expected from Shigeru Takao.
I don't understand it the dialog was as it is, or translated-manga in my country a lil' false, but some parts were seen awkward... maybe it's just me that doesn't understand.
The story is nice, but still I love Dear Mine more.
The ending was nice too, a lil' sad, but i couldn't think of a better ending. At least, all problems solved and all the main character conditions and action was clear.

Aaah for a second without paying attention to the rate at which this is ordinarily translated I thought this was licensed due to the lack of updates but turns out it's not. I'm so disappointed! I would be more than happy to buy this series. It's a shame that the covers are so simple since I think that would put some people off Golden Days; the actual art inside of the manga is very easy on the eyes.

ah, i just brought the complete volume of the manga today. I love it very much, and finished reading all the 8 volume today, and re-read it again and those 2 times i read it, i always cried, expecially at the last volume. The author has a very good sense of emotion and successed very, very amazingly. I rarely cried when i read a manga, and this one totally make me cry. It's just so sad...
The story is outstanding. There are a lot of time-slip story and i don't really like much of them, except this. The art looks somewhat off from outside but actually it's perfect. The character's expression can be seen clearly, and i love it.

Actually, i've read it online before i brought it today, but i got kinda busy and forgot all about this manga. But today, when i was walking around in a bookstore with my friends, they laughed a manga'a art and that happened to be this manga. Suddenly, i remembered about this and i brought all 8 volumes in one go. They laughed at me though, but i don't care much and read it all the way and i'll NEVER regret that i buyed this manga.

For those who love sad stories, this is a MUST READ! You'll be sorry if you don't. It's not translated completely though.

And for those who visits mangafox to read this and dislike or hate spoilers, NEVER OPEN A THREAD WITH A SPOILER WARNING IN THEM. Cause the spoiler there is a real one. If you hate spoilers, you'll totally regret it if you go in, and never says that the people who are spoiling them are at fault cause it's your fault for coming in.

Anyway, this manga is very very worth to read. Totally recommended!!
