Both series sport an older girl being married to a younger guy and in both series the girl has a little trouble figuring out her relationship with him (due to his young age). The difference is, the duo from Otoyome-gatari get along pretty well, while the main characters from Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii don't (at least not on the surface).

When speaking of older female x younger male romance with considerable age gap there are two series that stand out. First is Otoyomegatari which has probably the best take on the subject in seinen manga ever. Second is Kumiko & Shingo which may appear similar to it's shoujo peers, but stands out due to it's length and the fact that the story spans many years.

Having witnessed his demise, Thors’ son, Thorfinn, became consumed by hatred and vowed to exact revenge on his father’s killer in an honorable duel. With nowhere to go, Thorfinn was recruited onto Askeladd’s ship and began working with the crew as they pillage settlements and trick naive armies. Now, the young boy spends his days honing his battle skills while carrying out Askeladd’s bidding in order to earn his reward of a duel with the vicious captain. But despite having failed in all his bouts with the man he despises so much, will the day ever come when Thorfinn can finally defeat Askeladd and lay his father’s memory to rest?

While these two manga are radically different in terms of tone, they are both meticulously researched historical fiction manga with absolutely gorgeous, highly detailed artwork.
