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

I mean the story gets a little bland every now and then but then something always happen that makes me smile. I kinda wish the ending was a bit more different but oh well. It was good.

If I could sum up this whole manga in one word it would be 'unfocused'. There's a few times when I was a bit confused as to what was going on, and the plot just kind of meandered about. Sure it's cute but it's unfortunately not very interesting.

An awesome manga, i prefer shotacons like these, even though the child is 10years old you seriously get the feeling of a matured man. Satoko however shuld be more strong though.

this was incredibly sweet! i was hesitant to read something with such a huge age gap difference. well, as it turns out, this 10 year old boy is more of a man than many other guys ive read in other mangas. hes hard working, caring and even at the age of 10, tries his best to protect the things he loves. hes a hell lot smarter than alot of other manga guys too. haha.

the only bad points are...the art is not thattt superb...and i wish they did a '10 years later' scene afterwards. i wanted to see the part where they get married, etc!

I don't always read mangas that have the younger male older female category but this was an exception because when I saw the cover...I was like:"Oh...this one (looks) cute" yeah I just decide like that. Plus it has the category of Male lead falls in love's just the right one to read at that time (my mood decides what category of the manga that i'll read)
and I was glad that I read this...this manga didn't fail me.
I really love the moments where Fuuma is jealous~

Sometimes the drawing confuses me, during those fighting scenes especially, everything's all mumble jumbled up, just don understand what's going on. I think that it's draggy, the main points were the beginning where they met and the end where everyone share their past memories, then after that it could have fast forward few years later when Fuuma was taller, and see what new interesting feels Satoko will have for him. One thing I liked was that it was mutual love when he was still shorter than her, that shows that she loves him no matter what.

this is a great manga for any shotacon out there. the young boy is mature in his thoughts and his feelings, but sometimes he shows his child-like cute sides that make you just want to squeeze him. the girl is the stereotypical helpless naive urchin, but i think she complement him in making him look more mature by taking care of her, but still retain the childish quality when she take care of him like a mother.

all the other characters are also good people that is easy to like. i also love the humour in here, where the hazy drawing becomes compacted when funny expressions were drawn in. the plot is inevitable, but is doesnt matter because the most important thing is the characters.

do read this if you love cute shota acting mature!

Yeah, the guy is ten and she's seventeen, and as a seventeen year old girl myself I can't imagine falling for a ten year old, but hey, it's a manga, so whatever lol. THIS MANGA IS SO CUTE. Like, I couldn't stop smiling and my heart kept squeezing and whatnot. So adorable! One of my favs, definitely. I've read it, like, four times since I first discovered it at 15. Loves. <3
