Watching Golden Time is like trying to catch an agitated puppy. It sprints off, leaving you dumbfounded and then as soon as it has calmed down and you have caught up, it bolts off again and the cycle continues. What was I thinking, saying that things had settled down last episode? An ending that I thought might just tie up a few loose ends has suddenly been turned on its head as disaster struck once more.
