The Golden Boy OVA has been positively received by English-language reviewers, but it is widely known for its mature content: while the OVA is not strictly a hentai animation, it does feature instances of partial female nudity, orgasms, and female masturbation. In contrast, the manga becomes almost pornographic starting in the second volume.

Golden Boy (Japanese: ゴールデンボーイ Hepburn: Gōruden Bōi) is a Japanese comedy manga series written and illustrated by Tatsuya Egawa about a 25-year-old freeter, pervert, and “traveling student” named Kintaro Oe (大江 錦太郎 Ōe Kintarō).
The animation is good for the time. The art range from serious to goofy, and can switch back and forth on the fly.
The pieces of music are not that memorable. The opening theme is “Golden Boy” by Joyo Katayanagi and the ending theme is “Study A Go! Go!” by Golden Girls.
This is one of those series that the ecchi is an integral part of the plot and comedy. Could it have been made without it? Possibly, but it would not have been as funny. The recurring toilet humor is both cringy and funny at the same time.
I would recommend completing episode one before writing this series off as another ecchi anime. Each episode is a stand-alone short story with the final episode bringing it all together in a satisfactory way.
I highly recommend this anime to the fan of comedy that doesn’t mind a lot of ecchi contents. Golden Boy contains mature themes/dialogs and some nudity. Intended for mature audiences.
