Chiruha lives alone in a small secluded house deep in a mountainous forest, the TV her only connection to the outside world. After years of watching and dreaming of what life must be like in the outside world, she has gathered up her courage to venture out and explore the local village.

Since there's hardly any information on this manga, I thought I'd better do a review^^ (btw, I've read the raws for all volumes, but only 17 chapters in english)

Dear is a mixture of romance, a very small bit of drama, comedy and action, with an art that keeps getting better with each volume.
