I'm usually not a fan of time-slips. But this manga, this goddamn manga just took my arrogant bias againt the genre & just chucked it into a shredder.

This manga has its disjointed moments, but overall the pace and plot are well put together.
The story is about a grandson who travels through time to help his grandfather's friends when he couldn't.
It's a lovely read, with lovely characters, and although it has many common elements the story feels original. Recommended.

there's a thread of melancholy throughout the story, but also some very touching and funny moments. i don't usually like the historical genre so i kept putting it off and now i'm kicking myself. i could have discovered this gem over a year ago. i found this story beautiful and well-written with interesting characters. it stayed with me for days after i finished reading it. the ending is bittersweet though, so prepare a tissue or two.

Emotional, tragic, beautiful, hopeful. It is heartbreaking and bittersweet.
The depth in each character, the effort put into the plot...
The feels....It's 12:20 am, I have finished it at midnight. I am not over it, and my tears are still rolling.

It's finally fully scanlated. Thank heavens. It's been 10 years lol.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But that last volume really hits you in the feels. This whole manga felt like a chase, so I'm glad the last volume delivered. It was bittersweet, but I'm content at the way it ended. /super spoiler/ I thought it would end completely platonically but it didn't ayyyy.

A beautiful and moving manga

I can't recommend this manga enough. It's a favorite of mine now, but my sister had to insist that I read it before I started it. It begins almost as a lighthearted slice-of-life story, but the character depth and relationships are so complex the ending ends up having to be sad. (I wouldn't really call it a tragedy, since it's just realistic. It not sad for the sake of being sad.)

Golden Days may be a shounen ai, but the love story isn't the main plot. Strictly speaking it's really more of an historical mystery. I like to view it as primarily a coming of age story. Mitsuya, who speaks without thinking and doesn't like being touched when the manga begins, has grown into a thoughtful and mature young man by the end of the manga. Despite what he's lost, he's a much stronger person.

This manga says a lot of about overcoming loss and death, loyalty and friendship, and a bit about love too. Even the minor characters are intriguing and have complex motivations (Yoshimitsu is one I still can't figure out.) It leaves many questions at the end that will have you thinking about this manga for a long time. I don't think I'll ever be able to forget it.

A haunting manga

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
I've read this for a long, long time, but I never can shake it out of my heart. It's always one of my fav shounen-ai manga ever, regarding that I've read so many BL so far I've lost count.
I love the art, the theme, the author's way of storytelling...Maybe it's bias if I say that I love everything about this manga. Oh, I hate the ending though.
After a long time fighting finally this piece got licensed in my country, and I couldn't resist buying 2 sets of them - One to read, and one to cherish forever.

This manga is beautiful. Not just the art, but the themes too. It made me remember how short life is. This manga says so many things. Every time I reread it I find something new. There are so many little details that Takao-sensei added. Everything in the manga is to build up to the end. It has great character development--the characters are so realistic that I felt like I could look up historical records about them.

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.
