''Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?'' [[note]] Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren't they? [[/note]] is a fantasy light novel by Tarō Tatsunoko.

Three problem children - Izayoi Sakamaki, Asuka Kudou, and You Kasukabe - suddenly receive an invitation to another world known as "Little Garden" from a girl called Black Rabbit(Kurousagi). Battles, laughter, sex appeal... anything goes in this new tale of adventure!

Released as part of the lineup for the Winter2013Anime season, the anime adaptation is currently streaming on [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/problem-children-are-coming-from-another-world-arent-they Crunchyroll.]] Viewers living in North America, South America, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and the Netherlands may watch the show legally.
----
!! This show contains examples of:

* TheAce: Izayoi is amazing at basically everything.
* ActionDressRip: Asuka suffers from one during her duel with the tiger.
* ACupAngst: Asuka has a moment of this when she tries on one of Black Rabbit's dresses. At first, it seems to fit perfectly, except in... a certain place.
* AmusingInjuries: After Shiroyasha tackles Kurousagi in episode 7 in the bath, the latter's head ends up embedded slightly in the bath floor.
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: Kurousagi's clan/community has been reduced to a shell of its former self due to being forced to take part in contests in which they lost to the Demon lords.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The calico cat is male. Not technically impossible, but very rare. (Although heck, maybe in [[AnotherDimension his dimension]], most calicos ''are'' male.)
* {{Badass}}: All of the main characters to some extent or another, but Izayoi is definitely the standout example.
* BadassBoast: Izayoi does this in episode 3 as part of a plan to restore Jin's community by proclaiming that Jin is going to take down the demon lords. He tells him that since they have nothing else to go on, they need a symbol to go by, hence naming the leader of their community.
* BeachEpisode: No real beach, but the characters spend most of the OAV in swimsuits.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When Kurousagi threatens Perseus by pulling out the spear of Indra, they have an OhCrap look on their face.
* BeyondTheImpossible: Izayoi's modus operandi is to punch anything and everything into submission. Nothing wrong with that but when his enemy unleashes a KamehameHadoken of [[TakenForGranite petrification]] and he beats up ''the beam'' as if it were made of glass, he baffles everyone.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: Ep 9: Three Stroms appear and block Jin's group. Cue Asuka and her brand new Golem.]]
* BlankWhiteEyes: Kurousagi has some in episode 2 after Sakamaki says he's staying out of the fight Kasukabe and Kudou picked with Galdo Gasper. He tells her that he had nothing to do with it, so doesn't want to take part.
* BloodKnight: Izayoi, big time.
* BlueWithShock: Kurousagi does this occasionally.
* BreatherEpisode: Episode 6, which is fairly lighthearted compared to the previous episodes where much was often at stake.
* ButtMonkey: Kurousagi is often subjected to being the butt of jokes or bad things happening to her.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Izayoi, You, and Asuka play the boke, and Kurousagi is the tsukkomi, right down to the paper fan she uses to hit them while doing it.
* CatchPhrase: Izayoi shouts "Sharakusai!" defiantly when an opponent unleashes a finishing move. It means "Cheeky, impudent" and usually is translated something like "In your dreams!" or "Not happening!" or "That's what you think!"
* CatsHateWater: Inverted, since the calico cat seems to enjoy swimming in the hot water quite a bit. There's a bit of [[TruthInTelevision truth]] to it: Cats generally hate water because it's cold, and handle warm water much better.
* CherryBlossoms: The characters walk by some in episode 2.
* CompellingVoice: Asuka's ability, "Authority". She is even able to utilize it to control plant life and inanimate objects as well, such as a sword.
* CurbStompBattle:
** In the first two episodes, the three human characters are able to largely win every challenge they come up against with little difficulty.
** Izayoi dishes this out in spades, whenever there's a fight he feels like even participating in. Basically, Izayoi, period.
* CuteLittleFangs: Shiroyasha, the loli demon lord.
* DancingTheme: The ending credits has one. The three main female characters dance for a bit, then Kasukabe and Kudou stop dancing for a while, causing Kurousagi to start dancing wildly on her own, then they join in again. Sakamaki then does some break dancing at the very end after just watching them the entire time. The dances when the cast rejoin also seem like {{ShoutOut}}s. While the [[MichaelJackson breakdancing]] is obvious, Kasukabe is doing {{MCHammer}}'s dance moves from the "U Can't Touch This" video.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Leticia is a heroic vampire and a demon lord.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Starts out like a more badass version of Anime/DogDays, but it becomes apparent that it is darker with KnightOfCerebus introduced as early as episode 2 and also the hidden depths of several characters.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: You Kasukabe becomes friends with Ayesha and Jack O'lantern after she loses to them in a gift game.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Izayoi literally does this several times, punching out the various gods and demons of the Little Garden.
* DynamicEntry: Subverted when Izayoi shows his utter contempt for portals, doors, entry ways, or even the window in episode 10 when he nonchalantly busts the ceiling (and were not talking about some glass ceiling no no no we mean he breaks through the floor of one level to reach the lower level) and drops out of it in what is probably the most downplayed destructive entrance ever.
* {{Expy}}:
** Asuka, with her "Arrogant and confident magic-using young-mistress of a wealthy family who sports luscious long black hair tied in twin-tails and loves to dress in red and black", is a clear expy of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin Tousaka]].
** The ''cat'' appears to be an expy of Shamisen from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''. Both of them are male calicos (a rare combination) and surprisingly intelligent {{Talking Animal}}s (with [[SpeaksFluentAnimal Kasukabe's]] assistance).
* EmotionlessGirl: Leticia
* FanService:
** The outfits Shiroyasha picked out for Kurousagi to wear fall into this trope. Izayoi later gives her a thumbs up and tells her "Good job!" when she mentions it. They discuss it again in episode 7, despite Kurousagi's objections to it.
** Fanservice seems to be the whole point of the OAV. It's got it all: fundoshi, swimsuits, girls covered in milk, tentacles, [[TheNudifier nudifier water]]...
* FishOutOfWater: The three human characters go through this when Kurousagi summons them to her world.
** FishOutOfTemporalWater: When Asuka and Izayoi chat a bit in episode 6, they learn that they are also from different time periods [[note]] He mentions she must have lived right after the war. Though which war is unspecified, its likely WorldWar2[[/note]], as she is unaware of what Halloween is, and has never eaten a crepe before the festival they attend.
* FriendlyTickleTorture: Kurousagi is subjected to this by an invisible Izayoi in episode 5. Once she finds out its him, she smacks him a couple of times with a PaperFanOfDoom.
* FuroScene: The first part of episode 3 has one with the three main heroines.
* TheGadfly: Izayoi seems to take an equal amount of pleasure out of [[BloodKnight fighting]] and making fun of Kurousagi.
* GirlyBruiser: Asuka, fighting evil and being badass while in a frilly dress and hair ribbons.
* TheGlomp: Shiroyasha does this to Kurousagi in episode 2.
* GratuitousEnglish: Kurousagi usually says "yes" a lot. [[note]]The Japanese word for "yes" sounds like "hai" or "hi"[[/note]]
* GreekMythology: The styles and powers of the Perseus Community incorporate elements of many Greek myths.
* HeelFaceTurn: The henchmen sent to kidnap hostages in episode 3 seemed ready to turn when Izayoi told them Jin Russell would take down the demon lords, as they weren't exactly loyal to Fores Garo in the first place. However, Izayoi instead has them go spread the word from the BadassBoast he proclaimed earlier, which [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness cost at least one of them their lives]] a few moments later.
* HeroicSacrifice: Leticia pushes Asuka out of the way of the Gorgon beam in episode 4, getting turned into stone in the process.
* HumanShield: After Asuka attempts to attack Izayoi in episode 6, he suddenly grabs Jin and puts him in front, causing Asuka to hit the poor kid instead.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Pestilence, [[ChekhovsGun with the Spear of Indra]].]]
* InfoDump: Episode 1 is full of them.
* IronicEcho: Izayoi does this Perseus.
* IRegretNothing: After a frantic Kurousagi asks the girls why they would make such a high stakes bet with Fores Garo, [[SpeakInUnison they answer]] simply that they were mad and acted rashly without thinking of the consequences. Then they say, "We regret nothing."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Izayoi. For all his BloodKnight tendencies, his actions towards others who are on his side, usually serve some kind of goal that is beneficial for them.
* KrakenAndLeviathan: Izayoi defeats a Kraken in episode 4.
* LetsGetDangerous: Kurousagi, resident ButtMonkey, seems capable of getting down to business when she goes into "pink-hair mode".
** When the three human characters jokingly write a threat that they're going to leave the community if she can't catch them by sundown. Then she manages to do just that, despite being far away and evading her for a while. "Far away" meaning almost a ''million'' kilometers apart.
*** As a nobility of Little Garden she can use teleportation stations free of charge and they explicitly told her where she can find them. The fact that her ears are constantly connected to all Little Garden surveillance systems helps as well.
** In episode 10, [[spoiler: she engages in an extended battle with Pestilence and then teleports several of the combatants ''to the moon''.]]
* LittleBitBeastly: People with animal ears and tails are around everywhere in Little Garden.
* MagicSkirt: Kurousagi's skirt literally has this gift, to almost let people see what it covers. Key word being ''almost''.
** It is later revealed to be this trope ''explicitly'' by its designer Shiroyasha as a work of art; art is equal parts what is seen and what is left to imagination, hence the MagicSkirt. Once this is explained, Izayoi admires her thought process.
* MaleGaze: Used prominently on Kurousagi in episode 4.
* MsExposition: Kurousagi does a lot of explaining to the three main human characters about how the Little Garden world works.
* MoodWhiplash: There are some scenes which are fairly LighterAndSofter, such as when the three humans are relaxing in the rabbit's community. The games then often take a DarkerAndEdgier tone to them, such as the fight with Fores Garo in episode 3.
* MoonRabbit: Kurousagi. She even has the ability to [[spoiler:teleport a group of people to the moon]].
* TheMultiverse: While walking by some cherry blossoms in episode 2, one of the girls mentions that it must be spring in the Little Garden, and how it was summer where she was. Another mentions it being fall, and Kurousagi says that she pulled all of them from different universes, so they all had a different history, although all that was mentioned at this time was different seasons.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Izayoi's gift is deliberately defined as "unknown". So he can often shows off a new use of his abilities when the plot demands it.
* NinjaMaid: Leticia, after rescuing her from Perseus.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Leticia
* PaperFanOfDoom: Seems to be Kurosagi's favorite against Izayoi and Shiroyasha.
* PokemonSpeak: DEEN!
* PowerDyesYourHair: Kurousagi's blue hair turns pink when she uses her powers.
* RubberFace: Jin suffers one from Asuka in episode 3 after the latter [[CompellingVoice forced him to run away]]. Unfortunately for her meant he picked her up as well while fleeing, which left Kasukabe alone to face Fores Garo.
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: In episode 6, the three human characters wish to visit a festival taking place in the northern areas of Little Garden. However, Jin tells them the festival event is about 980,000 km away from where they currently are, because the world they're on is roughly the size of a star. Oddly enough, this is an aversion: the stated number is about 1/4th the circumference of the Sun, and the whole point of bringing it up is that they can't travel that far without using a [[TeleportersAndTransporters jump gate]].
* ShoutOut: During the SuperDeformed skit at the end of episode 4, Izayoi is briefly dressed as [[SailorMoon Tuxedo Mask]].
* SmarterThanYouLook: Izayoi, he figures out Perseus' plan causing Kurousagi to say this.
-->'''Kurousagi''': "Izayoi-san, are you actually smart."
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Kasukabe can do this thanks to a magical amulet her father gave her. It also has the additional bonus of replicating an animal's power, such as the griffin from episode 2.
** UpgradeArtifact: Technically, the amulet allows for [[PowerCopying replicating a]] ''[[PowerCopying trait]]'' of an animal, as it applies not only to supernatural abilities but to completely mundane ones as well. Kasukabe is as nimble and agile as a cat, and as strong as an elephant, and has a sense of smell as good as a bloodhound. Literally.
*** Plus she's highly resistant to cold (from a penguin) and can use sonar (from a dolphin) to detect invisible men. And when she's bouncing around in the trees in episode 1, she looks like a squirrel.
* StraightMan: Kurousagi to the problem children. She's constantly trying to curb their goofball antics, and they constantly twist her words or plainly contradict her in favour of fun.
* SuperDeformed: The ending credits.
* TakenForGranite: [[spoiler: Leticia in episode 4]]
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Two awesome ones: [[http://suisei.kokidokom.net/2013/02/24/sadohara-kaori-featuring-yamagata-yukio-beauty-as-the-beast-lyrics-translation Beauty as]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN2p3XqjWHc the Beast]] for Izayoi and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8KG5ewkmOE Scarlet]] for Asuka.
* ThereWasADoor: [[LargeHam Izayoi]] makes a trademark BigEntrance by using his powers to effortlessly blow the door down, only to be politely informed that the door was unlocked. In the last episode, he enters a room by needlessly blasting a hole through the ceiling.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Kurosagi talks like this.
* TranslationConvention: The cat speaks in subtitled meows at first, to show that he isn't actually talking, before transitioning to this trope.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Kasukabe is injured pretty badly in episode 3 during the game against Fores Garo, leaving Asuka to battle him.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: While Izayoi has been shown to have some intellect and good observational skills, it seems his solution to every fight is "punch it as hard as you can." Interestingly, the first time he doesn't win a Gift Game is also the first time "punch the bejeezus out of everything" wasn't a legitimate way to win.
* WouldHurtAChild: Galdo Gaspar reveals that not only does Fores Garo take Communitys' children hostage to make them cooperate with Fores Garo, but that Galdo [[spoiler:killed the child hostages as soon as they were brought in]].
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Asuka does a Shining Wizard in episode 6.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Kurousagi's hair is normally blue, but she can change it to pink as well.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In episode 3, Fores Garo kills one of the men he sent to the rabbit community after they failed in their mission to kidnap hostages, due to Izayoi waiting for them.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Kurousagi and Kasukabe.

* WouldHurtAChild: Galdo Gaspar reveals that not only does Fores Garo take Communitys' children hostage to make them cooperate with Fores Garo, but that Galdo [[spoiler:killed the child hostages as soon as they were brought in]].
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Asuka does a Shining Wizard in episode 6.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Kurousagi's hair is normally blue, but she can change it to pink as well.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In episode 3, Fores Garo kills one of the men he sent to the rabbit community after they failed in their mission to kidnap hostages, due to Izayoi waiting for them.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Kurousagi and Kasukabe.

** FishOutOfTemporalWater: When Asuka and Izayoi chat a bit in episode 6, they learn that they are also from different time periods [[hottip:*: He mentions she must have lived right after the war. Though which war is unspecified, its likely WorldWar2]], as she is unaware of what Halloween is, and has never eaten a crepe before the festival they attend.

* DynamicEntry: Subverted when Izayoi shows his utter contempt for portals, doors, entry ways, or even the window in episode 10 when he nonchalantly busts the ceiling and drops out of it in what is probably the most downplayed destructive entrance ever.

* FanService: The outfits Shiroyashi picked out for Kurousagi to wear fall into this trope. Izayoi later gives her a thumbs up and tells her "Good job!" when she mentions it. They discuss it again in episode 7, despite Kurousagi's objections to it.
