Although it's a sweet read but it's pretty boring at the same time. I thought I could see them get married at the end or maybe see the little kid grow up into a fine man but there's nothing like that. The story might be nice, drawing is okay but there's not much development. It shouldn't have 4 volumes if the story doesn't develop that much. I gave it an 8 mainly because of...HAGANE!! Haha, he's so cute and sweet. Although he's not the main character, but he's so funny and gentle!

Just a couple of extra pages on the end of the last chapter and this would've been perfect for me. Something to show what happened after Fuuma grew up and them getting married or having kids, if that was the way the author imagined the ending (because presumably, she wouldn't have them going their separate ways?).
That aside, I felt sometime the panelling was slightly imaginative and I didn't always understand what was going on. It was a "miss a panel miss the story" storytelling. Personally it kind of bothered me that a seventeen year old fell in love with a ten year old but that's just me, and you expect that when you pick this up. Overall I felt like this was missing something, and the lack of an ending lowered my rating of this series.

when i read the first chapter i kinda didn't like it, it felt unrealistic for a child to do or act like that.
good thing i decided to stick a little longer, i got used to the manga and story got better and better.

I loved this story, I really did.
It actually made me cry! Totally worth the time.
I'm very fond of Older female - Younger male mangas, they are really fun to read. But either way, I find this story a bit better than Merupuri(At least it's a bit more realistic). Anyhow I really love Fuuma, you can tell he really does love and care for Satoko, plus his way of thinking is amazing!
This manga really left a print on me and I hope the following readers will like it too!

I absolutely love this manga! I may be biased, seeing how I actually enjoy the category "Older Female Younger Male" - ah! But I don't like those hentai, ecchi, yaoi, shotacon types... this manga totally fit my needs. The male protagonist Fuuma is so cute. He is very intelligent and mature; however, being only ten years old, he can't help but incidentally show his childish side to his fiance. He's very kind and caring to her, and you can obviously see he really loves her. He's truly going to grow up a wonderful man. And his fiance Sakoto is very sweet. Although she's completely against the arranged marriage at first, as she spends more time with Fuuma and realizes just how great of a young man he is, she slowly falls for him. I seriously love all the scenes they have together, whether it be Fuuma or Sakoto blushing at each other to when they become jealous~ everything is so heartwarming. Plus, it doesn't just focus on Fuuma and Sakoto, this manga also pays attention to subordinate characters too! And their stories are so cute as well. I just seriously wish the manga could be longer! At least a sequel! I wanna see Fuuma all grown up! >.<

I thoroughly enjoyed this series and despite negative reactions to the art, there was something very cute and endearing about it. I like how the mangaka can portray honest emotions without sullying the mood. Even as she cried I felt sad and laughed and felt many things at once. That, and I like age gaps bigrazz

Note: I did not read the extra at the endÖ and never willÖ This review is solely for the main story Dear Mine

The cutesy story is full of great moments, that I found relatively unique (though a few clichéís will be foundÖ), that will make youíre heart melt. Beginning this manga I wasnít quite sure what to expect, the cover wasnít all that appealing to me, the premise was a common one in shoujo, and the only reason I began reading it was because I was bored. I was pleasantly surprised by the enjoyment I got out of this manga.

Plot- A very simple plot and it stays simple. The pace is amazing though! The slow developing relationship between Satoko and Fuuma was excellent, a great pace was set and kept between them for the duration of the story, beginning and ending their story perfectly!

Characters- I really enjoyed Satoko and Fuuma! They were great characters; Satoko was a very normal girl who is likable and upbeat. Fuuma is much more serious and stoic but gets so flustered at times, some his reactions are just so cute! While the mains were great the secondary characters howeverÖ they werenít as great. I didnít enjoy them all that much, some of them just got on my nerves to much. But as I continued to read I began to like them a bit better although they still didnít compare to the mains. (Though without them the story would be half as good as it is.)

Art- This art style isnít my favorite style but I could still enjoy it, even if at times it was a bit sketchy.

Other- The story is a romance, if youíre looking for a complex plot with many twists and turns skip this, I can see how you may find this a bit boring. If youíre looking for a comedy donít expect this story to be to funny either, contrary to what genreís its listed under this story doesnít have comedy. Not that thatís bad, but if youíre searching for a more lighthearted, carefree, hilarious manga this isnít really what youíre looking for.
I donít usually like large age gaps, four years is about as far as Iím comfortable with, anything more I get uncomfortable and start switching around the characters ages in my head so they are closer together in age. So with this story the two characters are seven years apart, thatís a stretch for me, what makes it even more unrealistic is that the boy is only ten, very young. However the boy is so mature that itís hard to think of him as ten, so with this manga I was again setting him a few years older than he was. But while I would have rather they were a bit closer in age I still liked their relationship and enjoyed this manga and recommend this for anyone interested.

8/10 ĖWas good

The plot has a "forced marriage" theme to it that really weighs down the plot. The characters lack of ability to communicate their feelings causes the usual cliche plot devices to crop up. Lastly, although the series calls itself a comedy, the characters are mopey and spend most of their time wallowing in self pity.

at first i didnt really liked it...cause it was a little bit confusing cause i dont really know who is the one talking and im getting the weird messages...<imagine that!>..but fortunately enough...i finally got used to it..

about the art...its not exactly the best...but i prefer it rather than over-the-bishie-art of somekind <that gives me creeps>

the story is also nice!! though i guess i expected too much..*coughmerupuricough*

overall it was pleasant read!! fuuma was so great!!! he is so mature!!! i really think that he is even more mature than older people..about satoko...i didnt really think that she is annoying...shes tough in her own way...

read it!! dfinitely recommended!!
