Golden Child is an anime series that was created by YoungEezy27. It revolves around the life of Kobi Rysetsu as a rogue Golden Child who's on the run from the evil Kazime Corporation. Join him and his friends as they try and stop the organizations plans and save the world from what could be global domination.
Many years ago, scientists hired by the Kazime Corporation discovered and underground deposit of a rare, unnatural stone called "Kogataki no ishe" (meaning Stone of small machines). This Stone had the ability to produce small Nano-machines which have the ability to create and enhance machinery. It also had the ability to take it apart and destroy it. The Nano-machines cans also Enhance muscles, regenerate body tissue, optimize sight and many other abilities. Joseph Kazime, the CEO, ordered scientists to create a branch of super-soldiers never seen before called "Golden Children ". Golden Children were created by implanting N.I.C.R.O cores (made from Kogataki no ishi) into humans to give then superhuman abilities and Nanokinises. Everything seemed to be going perfectly, however, one day a Golden Child escaped the evil organization's clutches. Now Kobi Rysetsu (the escapee) must find a way to stop the evil organizations plan.
Kobi Rysetsu is the main protagonist of the series. He's a 16 year old Blackanese (African-American and Japanese) Golden child who specializes in creating rockets and jets and evolving daily appliances (e.g making a 300GB memory stick). His "Gap year" was when he was 8 years old and he escaped the Kazime Corporation at the age of 10. He moved to Japan in order to escape the organization and his best friend since then has been Yoshi Merumi.
Yoshi Merumi is a 16 year old human with above average IQ. He's been best friend with Kobi ever since he was saved by the latter from a group of gang members. He claimed that Kobi is the only friend he can truly trust and was the first of his friends to discover his powers. He's usually a wimp but can be especially brave when needed.
Katashi is an old Japanese man and long time friend of Kobi. He knows an awful lot about Golden Children which remains unexplained. He's known Kobi since he was 10 years old and was the one who told him to come to Japan in the first place. Katashi has a knack for sneaking up on people and can also sneak away from people with expert stealth. Kobi (and later Yoshi) nicknamed him Gramps much to his annoyance.
Mr Sparks is your typical big black drill sergeant for a gym teacher. He's a middle aged muscular man who doesn't take nonsense from anyone. He's also a Golden Child and also works for Kazime Corp. His constructs focus on vehicles such as jet engines and tank cannons. He also used to be a soldier and was a very well known one.
Chris Freeds is another Golden Child that works for Kazime Corp and specializes in constructs that involve cooking appliances. Not much is known about him apart from the fact that he actually goes to the same school as Kobi and Yoshi.
