Shimana Kameko decides to skip school and run away from home after feeling overshadowed by her six-month-old brother and new stepmother. While searching for somewhere else to stay, she stumbles over a man wearing a kimono who has apparently been locked out of his own house. Desperate to get back in, the man offers Shimana a place she can rent from him if she can fulfill three conditions: find the house key, tell him why she ran away, and have a dream and someone to love.

After meeting the three conditions, Shimana is welcomed into the boarding house by her fellow housemates: Taiga Fujiwara, the aforementioned man as well as her new 21-year-old landlord with a love for alcohol; Zen Nakajou, her energetic classmate who is quite fond of pandas; and Asahi Tatsugae, another fellow student at Yuumei High School with a warm smile. Now living in a house full of handsome men, Shimana slowly but surely finds her life becoming more exciting than ever before.

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 ...

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 ...

Should have titled it Unrequited Love, the Manga.

If you're a fan of cliche shoujo manga, like me, then you'll probably have seen every trick in the book. (Or, manga, I guess.)

If you're that person, it'd be fine to skip this. It's very predictable, and that's fine, but it's also a longer read, which makes the cliches even more tedious to get through. Worse than that, they repeat the same cliche to a fault.

Characters are pretty dynamic, but the main-protagonist is flat, being a super typical shoujo heroine, and conflicts feel recycled, failing to make much of an impact.

Specifically, the whole "unrequited love" ...
