From Aerandria Scans:

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!

Manga tries too hard.

I felt that the idea was very interesting, but the manga failed in the delivery of it. The mangaka tried too hard to somehow tie the present day with the events in the past and all that resulted in was a very jerky, confusing, over-the-top story. Clearly present day Japan is not like the aristocratic society of the Heian period, yet the characters are somehow stuck in the same "tragic" cycle as the characters in Genji Monogatari- but no real explanation as to why that should happen. The current reincarnations have different personalities, they meet in different circumstances, and their environment is completely different; so trying to make their relationship parallel Genji and Murasaki's relationship is completely absurd. The romantic setups are also extremely cheesy and feel contrived, and their everyday behaviour is unnatural. It could have been a nice story, but it ended up failing on so many levels.

this is such a wonderful manga, i especially love when they flashback to the historical times, showing Hikaru's pain.. i always cry because he's such a fool for hurting the one he truly loves... i love the artwork and it is definitely a must-read!!

This started out with a lot of potential. The plot was good, characters were well fleshed out. The only problem was the drama was ridiculous. I think the manga-ka tried to make the characters cry at least once in every chapter, and then have them argue, split apart and confess their love again in 5 chapter cycles. The historical aspect is good, but after seeing how stupid the couple is, you just wanna shoot them.

To be honest, I almost never give a manga this kind of rating unless I really didn't like it. I pretty much agree with what everyone has said about this so far; it has way too much drama and the ending (yes I somehow managed to finish it) made me really confused. The couple just made me so.... OINAGIOANOIDNAKNV IANSI
Anyways, I am done with my rant. To sum it up, I didn't really like this manga. I wouldn't recommend it, but some people like it so whatever floats your boat.

overall i enjoyed reading it but i just can't stand how the girl(main character) in her past life can sit around and wait for him when he's doing other ladies. That seems pretty retarded to me and in their current life time, all he does is hurt her and she seems to put up with that.

I find the mangaka's style of storytelling very jerky and abrupt, often leaving the readers confused. And it also feels like she's just fitting a typical shoujo hero and heroine into the (novel?) concept of reincarnation.

This was so bad, its not even funny. I wouldn't even recommend this manga to someone who just wants to waste time. I started out actually liking the manga, but somewhere in the middle, it just got to be too much! Not to mention the ending is terribly confusing!

At first its a little bit confusing but quite quickly sorts itself out. Overall its pretty nice, not a lot of action or excitement though so I can understand how some might not enjoy it all that much. I feel its a bit a little bit mislabeled, it's described a smut but there very little of that in there and what there is happens to be mostly during the first few chapters. Have to say I thought it was very well drawn, the art is brilliant and the story, though slow at times, is also very good. I rather enjoyed it though I admit i would have liked a faster pace and a bit more excitement. Still, very nice romance overall biggrin
