Wakabayashi Toshiya shows us a series of 4-koma manga depicting various scenarios of young love. These short stories range from a boy, crippled by his absolute lack of confidence in himself, cannot even accept the fact that the girl of his dreams actually asked him out on a date, to the near-psychotic girl that pours her own blood into her homemade chocolate in order to win his heart.

The anime adaptation of Tsurezure Children impressed me. Short and simple romantic gags, couples interacting with each others, and content that was both cute and giggly. Simple things such as these are often the ones that have the most to offer. At least when it comes to getting expressions out of its viewer.

This source material manga impressed me further. Rather lengthy series compared to the anime (3-4 times longer, to be exact), yet it kept its quality rather consistently and managed to offer enough new to keep interest despite its super simple settings.

Our story consist of nothing but several couples (there are over 30 main read more

Think of your first romance anime. Or your first romance manga—anything of the sort. Then throw it all away.

Cliches are a recurrent element in stories—and the thing is, you will never be able to get rid of them. They are cliches for a reason, and their existence proves to be essential in composing a story. Most writers and enthusiasts of literature believe that there is no thing such as originality; everything exists from being based off of something, with just some modifications to make it stand out from the rest.

Of course, it is fairly common to see overused tropes in the like in a subculture read more

Honestly I came across this manga by accident while I was searching for a good comedy romance manga to read and this is exactly what the doctor ordered.
The story is basically snippets here and there about various students attending a certain highschool and how they are infatuated with eachother.

I honestly got hooked from the start. The art was good which is what initially drew me to the manga (no read more

Short version:
Unrelentingly charming, Tsurezure Children focuses on the sweet yet awkward first steps of falling in love.

Long(er) version:
When I think of romance in manga and anime, I imagine all of the horrible tropes plaguing the medium: from the pretty boy vs. bad boy dilemma of shojo to the oblivious male leads of shonen, manga and anime are filled with unrealistic and uninteresting approaches to depicting romance. While these archetypes might inspire waifus and husbandos among fans, there isn't much emphasis on the relationship itself.

Tsurezure Children takes a different path - by focusing on the act of confessing love, and the subsequent first steps of the read more
