Hello and welcome to a special recording of The Downpour Podcast!

Today’s episode features a full-length discussion on the anime series Golden Time. Jared sat down with a special guest from the Operation Rainfall staff, the one and only Oscar! They reflect on everything from the anime series up to episode 19, so newcomers to the series beware. Spoilers start at 6:30, but even if you haven’t seen Golden Time, we think you’ll enjoy this full-on discussion.

With a focus on character progression and major plot points along the way, Jared and Oscar pick apart the series’ strong ability to pull off the “Golden Time Effect,” or the ability to constantly move away from the norm of the average romance anime. All characters are discussed, along with a serious discussion on choosing either Team Koko or Team Linda. The episode closes with their final thoughts and predictions on where Golden Time will finally come to a conclusion. There are only four more episodes before the series finale!

For more discussion on anime from the winter 2014 season, please check out episode 43, part 2, of the Downpour Podcast.

Please enjoy this episode of the podcast. As always, we appreciate your feedback, and you can email us at if there’s something on your mind.

Golden Time can be streamed from Crunchyroll.
