The Monologue   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

One of the most beautiful artworks; beautifully designed characters, beautifully contrived stories.
All of the characters, the main ones, are really interesting, likable and realistic. The art is impressive, but more distinctive in that manner which somehow gives you a feeling that you're looking at the real images of the Japanese.
Beside the -sympathetic four- the character I like the most is Miura - the mystic policeman. smile
He's drawn just the way I like it the best, and of course, his personality is something really special. He is a queer fellow, but has an interesting story behind himself.
You shouldn't judge this manga just based on a scene or two that could be unpleasant and annoying at the time, cause it has its peculiar essence in it.
The Dreamin Sun's story is trickling, just as if you were reading a particular book you've discovered, and can't even take a breather because the plot won't let your curiosity take a rest smile

Shoujo Done the Right Way   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

I came here expecting a couple of pages of reviews and Iím surprised to see that thereís hardly a pageís worth. Yume Miru Taiyou is probably what you would classify as your typical shoujo - all glittery hearts, sparkle and cuteness, but to say itís just a normal shoujo doesnít quite do the series any justice. Itís so tooth-achingly sweet in almost every aspect that itís hard to dislike the story or its characters, despite whatever flaws there are.

The first couple of volumes are probably the most difficult to slog through as itís pretty much by the book shoujo at the beginning, what with the red herring love interest and the predictable set-up that leads to the love triangle. A couple of characters seem rather unlikeable at first, but they really grow on you. Itís a story about friendship, romance, and family - all told in a humorous and heart-warming fashion that doesnít feel forced or too contrived.

Shimana, the main female character isnít all too different from your normal heroine, but sheís very likeable. Sheís earnest and honest about her feelings from the get-go, and as someone whoís read too much shoujo, Iíve come to appreciate that trait in characters. The Landlord starts out as this rather grouchy fella, but as the story progresses, we get to see more of his thoughtful side. I found Zen to be a very unique character playing the love rival and best friend at the same time. It can be difficult pulling off that type of character, but Zen suits the role quite perfectly.

More than anything else, I appreciate the pace of the story. So many shoujos fail at creating an even pace, often times resorting to [uninteresting] secondary character arcs just to fill the void or to stretch out a popular story. Although we tend to go around in circles with Shimana and the Landlord, it never feels too drawn out. The ending, while I wonít spoil it here, was pretty perfect for me (had me in tears in a couple of spots).

While it offers nothing new in the way of story or characters, I can at least say with great confidence that this is still shoujo done the right way. Itís rare that Iíve come away so content and pleased with a series. I am looking forward to the next one Takano-sensei!

well u can say that i got tired of reading manga(s) to the point that i'll just flip through the pages and watch the actions of the characters without going through their dialogues . . . then comes this manga .. . first few pages "nah typical shoujo" then after she tripped over the guy my whole view of the characters drastically changed (though i can not , in any way, change the fact that it is soo shoujo plot) its fun read, you'll laugh page after page.

I think people should stop saying "ah! typical shoujo ew yuck, so girly i'll drop it"
cause a lot of typical shoujo plot has great characters, you can predict the story but cant predict the characters i guess . .

the plot is simple, the characters are no that deep enough. The main character is plain and in the end kinda boring. I keep reading but I hate the boy she is in love, and I dont have emphaty anymore.
the art is nice, but not to keep reading.
see ya
pd. for me is a 6

Nice Art

I would only finish reading this manga if i was extremely bored. The main element that makes up most of the rating i gave it is the art - I love the art, and its what drew me to this manga. But other than that, this manga doesn't have very much for it going. The characters are pretty bland (typical) and see through. The main characters felt more like side characters due to lack of development. The only character i really liked was the landlord.

What really threw me off was the predictability of this manga. When i read this its as if can feel the story following a already setup-cycle . Unfortunately, this manga failed to keep me interested. But the art is noteworthy!

The set up is very shoujo/cliche. Girl moves in with a bunch of guys, falls for one, while one of the guys falls for her. The usual love triangle. BUT as the story progresses it becomes something more, less cliche. It's almost like she was just taking a safe route until the mangaka finally got permission to write what she wanted--or something.

Anyways, what makes this such a great Shoujo is the characters and humor. Zen, is hilarious. I mean, you can't help but smile and laugh at his panda obsession and reactions. He's not your typical shoujo guy and he really makes the manga great. The girl lead is nothing special but at the same time you can't help but like her. She's not dense, nor super smart. She's not over emotional or cold. She's not your typical shoujo girl--more like your typical girl--as typical as a fiction character can get. She's all around relatable, just what the main lead is suppose to be.

Also, the development is nice and realistic. Nothing seems to drag or just stay stoic. Each chapter you get something out of someone. No dansels in distress or overly used cliche plots/subplots. Everyone seems to fit well with realistic things--even if it sounds unreal. (Yea, sorta contradicted myself, but you'll see if you decide to read.) Good development all around, and hopefully it stays consistent.

Oh, and the drawings are amazing. Especially the expressions. Spot on, detailed and hilarious. smile

Cute, very great art, but I stopped reading

Let me say that I love the art for this manga. Characters actually have teeth for once! This is especially noticeable with the character Zen, a guy who loves pandas and is usually shown with his mouth open and baring his fangs. I don't know why, but it looks extremely cute. The design for the main female character is very ordinary though, nothing special at all.

Anyways, enough about the art. The story is cliche, redundant, and annoying. But enjoyable nonetheless. The main girl moves into this house with three guys. One of those guys happened to be her crush. The main girl cries every now and then, then gets cheered up by the oldest guy in the house. She confesses to her crush she likes him, but knows he likes someone else already. Then she crushes on the oldest guy, while the youngest guy (panda lover) crushes on her instead. She of course, rejects him.

Anyways, it's your typical shoujo romance,
Spoiler (highlight to view)
and after she rejected Zen, my favourite character, I stopped reading because I hate the oldest guy and I already knew they were going to end up together when she rejected Zen.
Though the story does make you wonder who'll she'll end up with (but after that, it's pretty obvious). I guess I just couldn't stand to see her cry anymore that I stopped reading.

But that's just my own personal opinion, everyone else will probably keep on reading and enjoy it. For that, I give it an 8.

Takano Ichigo's art is just so adorable! She draws using thin lines, and her female leads are usually super strawberry, polka dot, and pom-poms type of cute. They aren't annoying, either, and I wouldn't say that her stuff is typical light-hearted omggorgeousguy type of shoujo manga, but it's not exactly out-of-the-ordinary either. Yet there's something she does that makes her stuff so fresh!

Anyway, back to this manga. It's a different (or similar?) take on a girl-moves-into-houseful-of-guys. And to be expected,
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she falls in love with one (actually 2) of her roommates).
But what keeps me reading is to see who she's going to end up with. You could say that it's unpredictable (for once). And of course, the art...which is just soo cute, is too good to pass.

ye, it seems typical with the plot a girl boarding with 3 hot guys
at first I think the girl is the main character but in fact it's not ( learning this after a few chapters is really interesting)
and it's not just cute love manga, its name implies its meaning :"Yumemiru"-dreaming, try your best to keep your dream
and the last, the characteristics of the 3 guys are really particular, especially the real hero ,lol
I head over heel fall for this XD
