When the Emperor takes a new Empress, she is barely older than the Emperor's son Hikaru. She becomes both the one woman Hikaru loves and the one woman he can never have. And so Hikaru's feelings roam as his body wanders from bed to bed, seeking a replacement for her. When he finds the girl he believes can take her place... he commits a terrible sin. Now, a thousand years later, Hikaru's nightmares become reality as he is punished for past deeds in a new life; the greatest playboy in all of history... shakes like a lamb when any girl touches him!

This manga is loosely based on "The Tale of Genji" ("Genji Monogatari").

I was drawn to this manga as a fan of The Tale of Genji. It would probably help to have a certain amount of familiarity with the Genji before reading this, though most of the important plot points are very much explained. As a big fan of the Genji, I enjoyed the author's attempt at intertwining the modern day story with the more famous elements of the tale: Murasaki, the Rokujo lady, Genji's trip to Suma.

The modern day high school romance element was enjoyable, though rather cliche. So much of the story is spent on various crises that arise to call our protagonists relationship into ...

Preliminary (Unknown/28 eps)
I have only read the first chapter and it's hard not to fall asleep. At first it's a little bit confusing then just boring.. I could not bring my self to keep reading it. I think it could be a good manga it just has a boring intro. The art is mediocre not the best.
