From ryColaa:

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 Hikari Genji project.

The only thing that sets Minamoto-kun Monogatari from other manga is the main character's conspicuous sexual desire. Given that he is so lewd, one would expect more events to happen. This is most certainly not the case. Each weekly chapter is only 9 pages long, and so the flow of the plot gets severed very quickly. The whole manga is like a series of premature ejaculations. Trying to follow the latest chapter is simply unsatisfying.

Another thing that sucks about this manga is that the characters are shallow. An appealing aspect of harem manga is that the girl characters are extremely lovable. Once you pick a favorite character, you start rooting for her and hope that the main character ends up with her.
In this manga, there are no lovable characters. The aunt is a psychotic lady who wants her own nephew to get laid, and has a shallow reason for wanting to do so. The cousin is a failure of a tsundere and much like the aunt, is shallow. The only likable character is the main character's best friend, who provides some humor. The main character, despite his horniness, is still a failure. Having a main character with guts would be the only thing that would truly separate Minamoto-kun Monogatari from other harem mangas, but even this is not executed properly.

Minamoto-kun Monogatari is a half-assed attempt at a combination of harem manga and hentai. It doesn't provide romance as harem mangas such as Ichigo 100% would, and definitely does not provide the sexual arousal hentai manga provides. If you ask me, it's better to read the two extremes rather than trying to get both aspects by reading a lousy combination.

Man I'm loving reading this but i almost followed this manga from the very beginning and it's pretty interesting but one thing that is constantly breaking my head is that this manga is probably gonna be axed because the it almost doesn't advance on the chapters(8 pages almost every time) and the story is about a guy getting 14 girls but until the chapter i read he didn't have is first yet, but of course im imploting that it doesn't go axed.
So for me i think i am going to until this is more advanced.
But if you are people that like ecchi,comedy and romance and have a little of a good time i would recommend it to read.

wow, what an addicting plot with an interesting mature ecchi story for us immaturish guys. already 31 chapters in and i can tell this author knows how to pace a story quite well, regardless how slow it is. also she seems like she knows what shes doing with the plot so i'm pretty confident it will not spiral downward out of control.

the only (big) problem is that each chapter is like 10ish pages long which essentially turns them into what can best be described as bite sized candies where you'll never have enough in the end to satisfy your hunger.

i don't know about the rest of you but my typical prescription to this problem is to wait. wait as long as i can until this series completes, i lose interest in manga, or i give into temptation and start reading it again unfinished and then get depressed for having to wait for more releases.

Somewhat of a strange manga. The concept is interesting enough, a guy trying to recreate the Genji Monogatari in modern day. Sets up the ecchiness of the manga well, at least potentially. Though, it has its drawbacks. Each chapter so far is much too short and the plot moves rather slowly. I expect it to pick up however, it's growing in popularity quickly.

as it seems people here either being captivated or disgusted by this. in my eye, this piece is not entirely bad, but not special either. true that the characters design need a lot of work, but the idea put under the plot is challenging enough. say its old or overused, but challenging ancients is still challenging. up until now, the manga still has potential to has fascinating development.

update: the most recent chapter really realize its potential. it shakes! I'm surprised! sudden character development make me very excited. I'm glad I decided to catch up 10 or so chapters tonight. biggrin

(rating will go up but oh, i haven't rate it yet. LoL)

I'll be brief: Very short chapters, slow plot development, the main character doesn't look girly even though the plot revolves around that supposed "fact". 6 chapters into the manga and I still feel no attachment to the characters. It's been random mediocre ecchi scenes and dull dialogue so far.

EDIT: Ok now this is just frikkin ridiculous. A mere 7 pages per week of shitty dialogue, recycled ecchi scenes and barely a shred of plot development and I've had enough. Not even the "good" art can save it. Don't read this crap folks, it's just a waste of your time. Seriously if you're persevering for the ecchi just go read hentai instead. I personally have dropped this from my reading list and am now going to remove every shred of it from my memory.

The male lead is pretty weak, there's lots of incest jokes and this is the type of story to string you along from chapter to chapter so cliffhangers are likely to be the norm.

That said, the art is top notch and the premise is uniquely messed up which is a rare accomplishment in a harem manga. You just don't find a character as messed up as the protagonist's aunt outside of hentai that often. Just beware that down the road, this series is designed to leave you with a nasty itching feeling of wanting more every time you read a new chapter.

Normally, I'd give a rating to a series after reading five chapters but in this case most of the chapters are less than ten pages each. Whenever I read a new chapter it feels like I'm missing half the release.

The aunt is quite cold and without personality. Considering how she is going to take up much of the storyline, it would be good if she developed a character sooner than later. I hope this manga doesn't go into incestuous territory. There could be really interesting plotlines of the aunt trying to help the kid and so forth but she ends up messing it up for him. Anyways, really good art (albeit a bit sketch-like), but a solid beginning. It is too early to tell, but this manga has potential.

Judging from the first 4 chapters, I really think this is a nice read given that im kind of into incest tagged manga but havent really read a lot of it. The story is about a guy being experimented by his aunt(HOT not to mention) to make a total of 14 women fall inlove with him to have sex with. This is a conquest type of manga, I presume. If the author would play with the plot the right way, this will top my list. Caution for readers though, be prepared for a shady past cause I can smell it a mile away. But anyway, every chapter is more or less only 8 pages which is really frustrating.. But if every chapter is plot developing, then I wouldn't mind it.

Bottom line, if you're into ero-conquest, incest, comedy and such, this is for you biggrin but I guess it is too early to make a proper tag for this manga. Even so, I recommend this!
