Didn't Koko fell in love with banri too soon ?
I mean wtf youre chasing mitsuo since you were a child and then you just go to banri as plan B ?
The anime messed it up a lot.
Koko is fucked up, and posessive as fuark. She probably didn't actually love Mitsou. It was more like a very deep rooted crush. But Banri showed her that she shouldn't look for "the one".
Kouko is a persitent idiot, she just was chasing Mitsuo because that is what she has done all her life. Love was over long ago.
Welcome to the world of anime, where the most unrealistic things happen on a daily basis.
>"I can't live without mitsuo"
It was a lie.
Still a good series though, in my opinion.
They turned a full novel series into 25 episodes. Time seems to go by much faster.
They skipped on a lot of context that made that whole arc/segment have a lot more sense.
Kouko just so happened to be vulnerable and alone, and Tada Banri was just there for her as a friend. However, he forced her hand with his breaking out of the friendzone.
At first I enjoyed it only because it had amazing OP and ED, but I'm actually really enjoying Golden Time now. I guess that's what happens when you start to like the characters.
