Premise: Young love—it takes many unique and fascinating forms that flourish as children begin to mature into adults. From being unable to confess to not knowing what real love actually feels like, various obstacles can arise when learning about romantic attraction for the first time. But underneath all that, young love is something truly beautiful to behold, leading to brand new experiences for those young and in love. Tsuredure Children depicts various scenarios of young love coming to fruition, along with the struggles and joys that it entails.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: This is a cute little vignette piece that’s a nice breather for when you aren’t wanting to really commit to a show. In addition to the episodes being short, each one follows three or four different couples showing a short scene. Because the cast is very large and the show jumps around, it’s pretty hard to keep names straight, but I wouldn’t sweat it too much. There isn’t a tremendous amount of character depth and growth because it’s a vignette piece, but it’s still a good heart-warmer.
TLDR: A short and sweet collection of cute and funny relationship-centered scenes.
I will say at least one of the dynamics I do NOT approve of. It does a solid long jump over the line of “romantic” into “creepy and abusive,” so don’t go modeling your behavior or your expectations after the student president.
