Description
This is a charming work that was very loosely based on the life of Heian era author and poet, Sei Shonagon. The 27-year-old Shonagon, depicted here as a sort of medieval NEET, manages to land a job as the private tutor of a beautiful and refined 13-year-old, Princess Teishi. There are also a number of other quirky court ladies, some of whom have their eyes on Shonagon...

I don't know much about Japanese history but considering how reserved the Japanese are today imagine what they were like 200 or so years ago; this manga takes you to the past but keeps some modern aspects. The protag is some famous poet or something, I dunno if they were originally a guy or girl but for the sake of the story (and yuri) they're a girl. This manga includes some historical figures I have no idea about so I dunno if they even exist.

Anyway the protag, a Shonagon-san, becomes a private tutor for a princess. Originally she was a NEET so this is a bit much for her but on first sight she admires the princess and the princess admires her as well. Course since Shonagon is a weirdo some people are worried, oh and she's also a wee bit perverse and overimaginative.
