Golden Boy

Each volume and episode of this Japanese Animation placed Kintaro Oe in the opposite of a young beautiful woman, whose interest or disdain for him acts as the conflict of the plot. Some of these women initially dismiss Kintaro as an idiotic and clumsy pervert and either give him or accept from him some challenge to prove their superiority. Kintaro invariably lusts after these women, but he is principally driven by his desire to be of actual service to them and to thereby learn more about the world. Despite his outward appearances, Kintao is an incredibly clever and resourceful individual and consistently exceeds what the women in his encounters thought possible, winning their hearts despite his outward awkwardness. But due to chance, necessity or a sense of honor. Kintaro never takes advantage of these newfound feelings.

Kintaro Oe ia a 25 year old dropout from Tokyo University Law School, he rides his bicycle around Japan “ learning about life”. He takes various part-time jobs and meets different kind of girls while he travel. This anime is a six part 1995 OVA and has more subtle content, while the 10 volumes manga (Japanese Comics) is more suitable for adult readers.

I'd have to say Goldenboy is one of my favorite animes of all time! It reminds me a lot of Great Teacher Onizuka, but is better. I really wish they had made more than 6 episodes...
