We here at Honey’s Anime love the romance genre. Honestly it’s always fun to see an anime couple deal with the realities of maturing and becoming closer as a pair, sometimes having to deal with comedy or drama filled issues thrown in front of them. However, like many other fans of the genre, we always want more couples in a story just so we can see multiple romances blossom. That’s why we really in love with Studio Gokumi’s Tsurezure Children. Contained in each of the 12 minute long episodes are stories about multiple couples that are either trying to maintain their relationships or build them from the ground up.

Yuki Kurihara has finally had her wish granted. Yuki had always wanted to date her crush Momo and finally is able to do so making her extremely happy. Meanwhile Momo—while also happy—is trying to find out how to be a better boyfriend and make Yuki happy in their relationship. Momo, however, doesn’t realize that Yuki already is extremely infatuated with him. Literally Yuki tracks Momo’s every movement and action. What will become of this cute but somewhat odd couple?
Momokuri can be at times very odd as a romance story. However, that is one thing that makes it so much like Tsurezure Children. Many of the couples within Tsurezure Children are somewhat peculiar and at times downright bizarre and thus why we consider Momokuri so similar to it. From studio Satelight, each episode clocks in at 12 minutes—like Tsurezure Children—and yet each episode will bring you plenty of laughs and cute romance filled events. If you’re waiting for more episodes of Tsurezure Children to air then we suggest watching Momokuri in the meantime.

4. Konbini Kareshi (Convenience Store Boy Friends)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jul 7, 2017- Present
For several people, a new school term means a new lease on life. Each of these characters are dealing with the everyday hassle of not only school work and club activities but also the issues of love and romance. The only thing that seems to bind all of these characters together just so happens to be an ordinary nearby Convenience Store. How will these love stories play out? Follow the journeys of characters like Haruki Mishima, Tore Honda and Natsu Asumi in Konbini Kareshi.
Love stories always seem to have an odd means of connecting multiple characters to one area. In Konbini Kareshi that binding spot happens to be a run of the mill convenience store that all six characters will happen to go to. Honestly though, so far we’re seeing some impressive romance elements from Konbini Kareshi which seems to harken to the ideas you see in Tsurezure Children with quick stories and multiple couples. While there are only 5 episodes that have aired so far for Konbini Kareshi—out of a confirmed 12 episodes—we really think this show is pretty cool so far. Studio Pierrot may have a solid romance story in the form of Konbini Kareshi but only time will tell.

Ryuuji Takasu may be a nice guy but unfortunately for him his looks say otherwise. Most see Ryuuji and immediately label him as a delinquent which at times does hurt his feelings. Meanwhile cute and small looking Taiga Aisaka might seem an ideal girlfriend but her actions lean towards a crass way of speaking and violent actions. These two share one major issue besides their looks though, they are in love with each other’s friends. Deciding to work together, Taiga and Ryuuji will find love but maybe not in the most obvious way.
A lot of the best romance lists on the internet include Toradora for a reason. This 25 episode story has some of the best examples of love’s various trials and we absolutely agree that it is one of the best romance anime of all time. If you love Tsurezure Children’s heartwarming and quirky couples then you’ll love Toradora for the same reasons. Studio J.C. Staff really has made one of the best looking—in terms of animation—romance anime of all time and if you haven’t watched it yourself you’re truly missing out folks. Toradora is a must watch for not only those who love Tsurezure Children but also the romance genre as a whole.
6. Acchi Kocchi (Place to Place)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Apr 6, 2012- Jun 29, 2012
Little Tsumiki Miniwa has a lot of love for her friend Io Otonashi. Even their friends wish the two would hook up but in the meantime that doesn’t stop them from messing with each other in multiple ways. Along the way they will both help and hinder their relationship from going forward with sometimes poorly timed jokes and stupid pranks. Watch as five friends get into a whole bunch of hijinks in this odd comedy slice of life story. Enter the crazy world of Tsumiki and Io in Acchi Kocchi.
Thus we end our list of anime like Tsurezure Children on quite possibly the funniest and sometimes goofest anime ever in the form of Acchi Kocchi. While Acchi Kocchi’s romance element gets pushed in the back for more slapstick humor and random mecha bear attacks, Acchi Kocchi does fulfill that romance itch in several ways. You’ll be rooting for the cute pairing of Tsumiki and Io to just confess their love for one another but when things go south or odd events happen you’ll equally just laugh as hard as we did. If you love your romance anime to be anything but the word normal, we here at Honey’s Anime fully recommend checking out Acchi Kocchi. Don’t forget to also check out the OVA episode when you finish the series. It acts as the ending episode of the anime.
