Poor Alice also has to cope with being regularly harassed by the bratty neighbor boy, Rin. Her life turns upside-down when she's stuck babysitting Rin and the annoying chore ends in unexpected tragedy. What Alice doesn't realize is there could be a greater force at work than unhappy chance!

Please Save My Earth is very different from Dear Mine, it actually has a plot and there is some heavy drama there. However, there is one thing that those two manga have in common: pairing a high school girl with a grade school boy. If you thought that this (relativly) rare motive is interesting, you should give PSME a try.

MeruPuri

MeruPuri

Airi has always dreamed of marrying her fated true love and living a normal, happy life – a dream disrupted forever when Aram, a prince from another world, emerges from her grandmother’s mirror. She takes the young prince home with her thinking he is a lost child, giving him a home cooked meal and a place to sleep. However, in the morning she discovers that, as the result of a magic spell, Aram transforms into a 17-year-old boy whenever it’s dark, and her kiss is the only way to change him back! If that wasn’t enough, Aram is in hiding from his older brother, the evil sorcerer Jeile, who has fallen in love with Airi and intends to make her his bride! Will Airi ever be able to find her happily-ever-after?

You know the drill: high school girl x (mature) elementry school kid. Both Dear Mine and Merupuri have this going on, except Merupuri has this whole age transformation and magic mumbo jumbo, while Dear Mine has some shoujo-style fluff instead. If you liked one of those, you might want to take a look at the other one too.

Younger, yet mature boy? Checked

Older girl? Checked

Arranged marriage? Checked

Generic shoujo heroine? Not checked

Do I need to say more? Well, I do: it has a very different take on the subject, but it's still sweet in it's own way (no "suger & fluff" though). Wait, why are you still reading this recommendation? Go read Otoyome-gatari instead.

The World is Still Beautiful

Both series have a rich kid paired up with an older girl. While the romance does unfold in both of them eventually, the girl has to act more like an older sister than a lover due to the guy's young age. The age gap is greater in Dear Mine, but the duo there seems to get along better. If you liked one of the series it is very likely you'll dig the other one too.

Both of those shoujo manga are those high school girl x elementary school boy romance series. If you read one don't miss the other.

Age gaps, adorable shotas, I don't see why you wouldn't want to read it!

Yankee Shota to Otaku Onee-san is more comedy-oriented, but is also really cute.
