Minamoto-kun has a face pretty enough to make people think he's a girl. Because of his face, he was bullied by the girls in middle school who were jealous of his face. He developed a fear of women due to the trauma and he ended up attending a high school for boys. Just as he enters college and makes a promise to himself to overcome the trauma of his past, his father remarries and asks him to move out of the house. His father arranges him to live with his aunt (Minamoto-kun's father's younger sister) for the time being. She is an extremely beautiful woman who is also a non-tenured professor at his college. When he arrives at her apartment, she shows him her breasts and tells him that he will be her "guinea pig" in her reverse Hikaru Genji project.

Minamoto-Kun Monogatari is an adaptation of Tale of Genji. I actually have read ToG and really enjoyed it. This is pretty similar. Modernizes it into a college boy's life. The book would fit under Comedy, Ecchi, Harem, Romance, Seinen.

Story - 9: It's not super original, but it is captivating. I won't lie I read to the first 50 chapters within like an hour. I think the story can somewhat connect to some people and how they're struggling with different relationships. Minamoto himself experiments with different women from different backgrounds. I think a lot of people can relate which makes this story good.

Minamoto-kun Monogatari is basically a modern day manga version of the old classic novel Genji Monogatari (The Tale of Genji) which was written in the early years of the 11th century (the Heian period). I don't know the full details but Genji Monogatari is basically about a man named Hikaru Genji and his love life, he is man who had good-looks and was a playboy who apparently had 14 lovers in his life.

Your probably wondering why im telling you this. Well these facts play a huge part in this manga's storyline and will help you to understand it.

Story 9/10

Story : 7
Art : 8
Character : 7
Enjoyment : 8
Overall : 8

Since the manga only has very few chapters out,i can't really see where the story is going to go. But what i can say is that this manga is a joy to read,but as warniefn stated before,it is not for kids,as it involves a bit of incest and a lot of fan service (With probably more to come). The story itself is pretty unique,and it makes you wonder if he gets to bang all those chicks without something happening. The art style is also clean and nicely drawn. I can't really say much for the read more
