At some point or another, we’ve all wanted to run away. Be it because life isn‘t how we imagined it to be or some things are just too hard to deal with. To not have to worry about what we leave behind or maybe that’s the reason we want to leave so badly.

On very few rare occasions, you might actually do it, leave your fears and move on. When that unusual phenomenon happens, sometimes it could be the biggest mistake of your life, others times it turns out to be exactly what you needed. Even if that road is as bumpy as it is read more

Since there is already a synopsis of this story....
The one thing that really sets this story apart from others are the characters' personality and how they interact/view each other. If it weren't for that, the plot would seem a bit over done (but of course, I'd want to read it to find out the ending ^_^). In this story there is a girl who ends up living with a few guys- none of which are truly cliché. There is Taiga that reminds me of Shigure from Fruits Basket and Asahi that is actually cool "at home", but a "nerd" at school. Finally, Zen who read more

"My third condition is: have a dream."

Now, as many of you can guess from the synopsis of the story, the very beginning is pretty cliché for a shoujo manga, which has turned many readers to drop it or just toss it away because of the overused story. But, don't do that and give this manga the second try. :)

Like I said, Yumemiru Taiyou starts off as many other mangas of the same genre - meeting a guy by accident and going to live with him. Now, I was hesitant at first whether to continue it or not, but I decided to do it because read more

The story here is standard shoujo fare, girl finds herself in the unpredictable situation where she must stay in a house full of boys. She finds herself falling in love with one of the boys, and the manga primarily deals with her relationships, and about them finding and following their respective dreams in the face of opposition. All very generic stuff.

The characters are all interconnected, and if you've read enough shoujo manga, there is truly nothing that will surprise you here. Some moments are positively cringeworthy, but these are few and far between what is a pretty heartwarming story despite it's unoriginality thanks to read more

Manga: Fruits Basket
Both stories are quite similar in their structure.
Both are about a teenage girl who moves into a house with 3 boys and they are the only girl. They both have romantic relations with one or more of the boys in the household. Yumemiru Taiyou is more based on romance, but Fruits Basket has a fantasy aspect to it also.

Manga: Taiyou no Ie
- Both girls have parent-related problems and hence run away from their house(s) - Both leads are refreshing and not your commonplace cliche heroines. - Both main leads are surrounded by guys in their new place and find love there. - Both main leads fall in love with the owner of their respective residences - Even titles are similar. Both titles involve "Taiyou"= sun and use it as a metaphor. - Both are shojo and romance, of course. - Love triangles. Readers of one will surely love the other.

Manga: Kimi wo Matsu→Akaiito
Storylines are pretty similar! And involve kimono-wearing bishounen. The difference is in Yumemiru Taiyou, Shimana runs away from home, while in Kimi wo Matsu, two brothers run away from home. Both are about a girl who is surrounded by handsome boys.

Manga: Hana yori Dango
- Both of them are shoujo romances - They both go through the daily lives/romances of a group of boys and one girl - The main girl likes one of the guys but he likes someone else, so she tries to help them get together before the girl he likes goes aboard - Both deal with love triangles - Both are really funny but also have a lot of touching moments

Manga: Issho ni Neyou yo
Similiar genres (both shoujo), and in both mangas the main character is a female that runs away and ends up living with strangers. The people she moves in with each have their own quirks (like a panda obsessed boy in YT and a boy who always wears a mask in INN). They both include plenty of humor (more in YT) and INN is a little dark, but in general if you like one, you'll probably like the other.

Manga: Sekai no Hashikko to Anzu Jam
It's both about the relationship between the landlord and the tenant. They both have beautiful art.
