I love Tsurezure children! So many fun couples! Lots of mangas I've never heard of, thx for the recs! I super recommend "Kanata Kara." It's an old cliche of beauty and the beast but it's done really well. It's also the oldest Isekai ive read, way before Truck-kun. No chapters on mangadex but it can be found on other sites like bato.

Yeah my bad, it’s just not of my tastes but there’s some that are really good and I should read! Thanks for the suggestion!
No worries. I think I might start my own thread on it. Enjoy!

Gonna throw my hat in the ring with a few more recs:

  • Utakata Dialogue - Softie delinquent-wannabe and carelessly sharp-tongued girl banter during their part-time work.
  • Yandere Kanojo - Confusingly titled 4-koma saga about a Yan(kee)dere, her cool, grandpa-fetishist bf and their circle of friends, rivals and acquaintances. Also confusingly has a semi-separate online version that ran in parallel alongside the main series. Packs a surprising amount of story, character arcs and progression in for most of its cast.
  • Jitsu wa Watashi wa - The GOAT. Technically a harem, actually more of a romance with steady progression but also a wide, charming cast of friends who love and support each other.
  • Umarekatatte no mata, Watashi to Kekkon shite kuremasu ka - Old farts reminisce about their life together.
  • Baby, Kokoro no Mama ni! - Surprisingly socially competent but self-destructive dork uses local baby to get close to the girl he admires. The author unfortunately quietly dropped it about a decade ago.
  • Mousou Telepathy - Somewhat frigid meganekko lies in a hell of her own making as she is forced to telepathically sit through her hormone-raging but expressionless seat neighbor's fantasies about her.
