Everyone remembers what it was like to get a crush in junior high; everything was so intense and the feelings always just seemed to sit in the pit of your stomach. Of course, it's not always easy to be open about those feelings as Kotarou Azumi and Akane Mizuno soon figure out in Tsukigakirei. Despite both of them liking each other, there are still other things to consider in their lives and, since they are in their last year of junior high, the future seems so unclear.
If you're looking for an innocent slice-of-life romance that will return you to the days of your youth, we've compiled a list of recommendations that would make a perfect follow up.
