Tsuredure Children
Volume 1


Love is not simple. It is complicated, frustrating, often incomprehensible—and it is something that many high school students are all too familiar with. Love takes on countless forms, but it is an emotion common to different kinds of people: childhood friends, tsunderes, classmates, delinquents, and student council presidents. Love can also flourish between unlikely pairs who bury their feelings deep within them, making it harder and harder to say that one notorious phrase in the human language... "I love you."

Tsurezure Children follows the journeys of numerous different couples and their romantic escapades. From the butterflies of a confession to the failed attempts at a first kiss, this story sheds light on the challenges and triumphs of young love.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

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 ...

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 ...

I can't believe this manga is as highly regarded as it is on here.

This manga was nearly the same for its whole 212.2 chapter run.

The story for each and every single pair is almost always about misunderstanding, being embarrased to reveal their own feelings and doubting themselves. That's it, nothing else. All of these issues could have been solved in around a dozen chapters at the most, but apparenlty people stop talking to each other literally the moment someone else interrupts them (which happens all the goddamn time in this manga).

The art is pretty poor as well, many of the characters look the same, the ...
