In his middle school years, the feminine-looking Terumi Minamoto was bullied by his female classmates after the most popular boy in the class declared Terumi to be the prettiest "girl" of them all. Living with a fear of women ever since, he seeks to change himself as he enters college. However, his father puts a wrench in his plans when he brings a pregnant woman home, announcing her to be Terumi's new mother. To accommodate her in their small apartment, Terumi is sent to live with his aunt, who is coincidentally an associate professor at his new college.

On his first day, Terumi finds out that his aunt, Kaoruko Fujiwara, is a voluptuous beauty known to hate men. As a professor, her main research is on the classic work The Tale of Genji. After a more personal introduction, Kaoruko works out that Terumi has suffered greatly because of his looks. Sensing an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of her research, she offers to help him—starting with his fear of women. But when her methods include being "raised" into the perfect lover like Genji who had sex with 14 women, will he truly be cured by the end of his very own "Tale of Minamoto"?

This manga is really good at portraying human relationships in my opinion, and the character development is superb. The protagonist going from a wimp to an absolute chad, but i love how the relationships aren't too unrealistic and the manga really doesn't take it self too seriously. The way the protagonist is girly and looks like a girl really adds a cool dynamic with the girls and the strategies he uses in order to 'steal their hearts' .

All in all a super fun read, would recommend for any romance fans who don't mind the censored sex scenes.

its finger lickin good

Note ~ For all the people who are concerned about the manga's length, it isn't actually that long. There are indeed more than 350 chapters, but all of the chapters are fairly short. Most of them can be read within only 5 minutes each. At least I did.

Life isn't all easy for college student Terumi Minamoto. Imagine being a boy so pretty that strangers usually mistake you for a girl. Being that pretty must benefit Terumi a lot, right? That doesn't seem to be the case with him, though, as he is left severely scarred from his traumatic experiences caused by his middle school female read more

tl;dr: An incredibly well written and illustrated manga about a series of relationships and the character arcs surrounding them, though one that feels unfinished.

This manga is heavily based on the work of literature Genji no Monogatari (The Tale of Genji) which is a story written in early 11th century Japan that as far as I understand it is quite well renowned. I haven’t read it and I don’t believe that reading it is necessary for reading this manga, but I think a quick scan through the wikipedia page will definitely help. Genji no Monogatari is centered around the chronicle of fourteen relationships that a man read more

The story revolves Terumi Minamoto, a girly looking boy who suffered bullying and determined to change, until university life began and took a huge twist. He meets his aunt Kaoruko Fujiwara, a professor at Shiun University specializing in the Tale of Genji, Japan's prime novel of the Heian Period.

Kaoruko plans to use Terumi as a guinea pig for the research. Fourteen women of differing calibers enter the door, and Terumi has to win their hearts, in differing, erotic, and often challenging ways. This also challenges his fear of women.

This manga's story can be summarized as "The Tale of Genji, in symbolism and execution: erotic." The read more
