Minamoto-kun Monogatari  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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 good looks. He developed a fear of women due to the trauma, and for that reason chose to attend 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 for 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.

Mixed feelings   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

Overall I like the manga, if it was an actual H series this would be my top favorite of all time. Naturally its weird to talk so highly of anything because its sexy, hence the mixed feelings. The MC is the usual annoying wuss, but he gets better as the story goes on. He still gets flustered at the slightest provocation but that's how most Japanese people are.

As for the characters, so far I like em all for different reasons. My current favorite is the most recent girl cause of reasons. I haven't read Tale of Genji so I don't know how closely Minamoto-kun Monogatari follows it, but it feels like it's in for the long run, IE he gets dumped by most of the girls but it feels like they'll come around and eventually form his harem. If it DOES get a legitimate harem end then this will be my top favorite manga

If you read the title of my review and like this concept, you'll be in for a good ride.

Here's the good points:
1. The erotic build up is great because it's done slowly with a lot of teasing.
2. The girls and the art are sexy as hell. The aunt is hot as fck.

Here's the bad parts:
1. If you read the original Tales of Genji, you'll know that the main character has the bad end for all 14 girls.
2. Male mc gets too easily flustered at the most simplistic erosticm. See some girl's cleavage? Face gets flushed and almost faints. See some butt curves? Gets flushed and almost faints. See some bra outline? Gets flushed again and almost faints. Sees a girl? Can't think of anything but sex. Goes on a date? He just day dreams about sex again. At some point in the story, after fucking 4-5 girls, the MC still hasn't changed from his pathetic personality. It'll be nice if there's some developments...

If read as a hentai, it's pretty great! If considered as a normal manga, it's pretty disappointing.

The only thing I'm hoping for in this series is if he will man up his courage to bone his aunt. LOL

Is not like those mangas that you can tell how ultra-mega-super virgins are the autors by looking at how stupid, erotic, and dumb is (Yuria 100 for example)
The main character has rapist tendences, is like a dog in heat.
But at least is not bad for read something if you don't have anything to do (I read it when I finish with some things or Im bored).

This series was a train-wreck on the first chapter and a disaster by the tenth. It did have some cool pointers though like pin the girl you want to fuck against the wall until she agrees to kiss you. While this series wasn't my cup of tea, it's got plenty of high scores and might be yours.

This is a god awful manga. It starts off with a MC who has a tragic past, but whatever character development is quickly shoved to the side as the author insists on using the most overused cliche in manga : the "guy is scared of physical contact with females, look at all these hot women who want to fuck him! Isn't it funnyconfused" cliche. Seriously, who does find this funny? 12 year olds?

To make things worse, the author has no idea how creepy she is making the women in this series seem (or she just doesn't care). The MC meets his aunt for the first time and straight away, she wants him to fuck 14 women for her "research". Let's stop and think about this for a moment. This is the MC's aunt, who is supposed to take care of him because his father remarried and decided it would be a great idea to kick his son out of the house. To make things worse, she is ALSO his professor. Double abuse of the guardian relationship.

So not only is sexually harrassing the MC bad enough, she then takes off her underwear right infont of him and invites him to touch her. AND she then invites his cousin over and tells him to fuck her. And later on, she introduces him to her friend, an adult who is a working professional, and tells him to fuck her too.

If you are still not seeing how creepy this is, imagine if the genders were reversed here. A college girl is forced to move to her uncle's place, and the first time they meet, he tells her to fuck 14 guys for his "research". He takes his underwear off right infront of her and invites her to touch him, and invites her cousin over and tells her to fuck him. And then he invites his friend, an adult working professional over, and tells her to fuck him too. And throughout this story, he keeps telling her to fuck this guy and that guy for his "research" while constantly undressing infront of her and inviting her to touch him.

Apparently, not creepy at all in Japan.

Not like the other women in this series are much better. The MC's cousin is an incredible jealous bitch who doesn't have the slightest clue what going on a date means AND shows zero willingness to learn. There's the aunt's pedo friend with the daddy fetish who strings men along yet is willing to fuck the MC, who is the guy who resembles her father the least. There's the girl who is supposedly scared of guys, yet is perfectly fine with fucking the MC in less than 3 dates (and then she dumps him right after because she was only using him to lose her virginity). Then the ex-bully who deliberately seeks out affairs with married men and tries to bribe the MC with sex, and she thinks her value as a person is directly related to how many guys she can fuck.

Oh and the aunt wants the MC to fuck a girl who is literally less than 10 years old. But it's totally okay because it's for her "research"!

The funniest thing is the author makes a huge deal out of how peverted the cousin's erotic novel writing friend is, but she's actually the most normal and least annoying girl in this cast. She is pretty straight forward, upfront about what turns her on and can talk normally to guys without doing a good bipolar imitation of swinging from "blushing maiden" to "raging bitch". She's even capable of asking the MC for advice on her novels which 99% of girls IRL would never dream of doing.

The sad thing is that despite having a cast full of dysfunctional characters and a sexually abusive incestous aunt...the story's focus is NOT on how screwed up the cast is. No, the story's focus is on "look guys! the MC has this really hot aunt who wants to fuck him! Isn't that awesomeconfused" and the aunt trying to get him to fuck another dysfunctional girl who the MC shouldn't be dating in the first place, because they are crazy and not the good kind of crazy.

It's like the author is just blatant trying to pander to 12 years old who think "omg!!! free sex!!!" all the time.

The punchline? This series is supposed to be seinen.

It's a strangely enticing manga.

The obvious good points are obvious: gorgeous heroines with pretty distinct personality and background. The hero is not too rage-inducing like your usual MC of a gal game.

But the psychology analysis is pretty exciting, and the situations.

All in all, a good one.

This manga at first looked interesting and I gave it a shot. The 9 pages for each chapter didn't annoy me at first but after a while it took forever to update and all you get is 9 pages of it either being good or bad. With those 9 pages it makes things more longer and more boring that you just want to give up on this manga after awhile.

genji monogatari   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

May 1st, 2013, 12:46am
this is based on the story genji monogatari a famous story in japan its like the romeo and juliet version of japan forbidden love harem style
if you read genji monogatari you will understand why the story is slow this manga is pretty good and is really like genji monogatari
its a good way of telling the story genji monogatari how genji got 14 lovers (thers more but only 14 are official but if i count them all its gonna be like 25 maybe more) you better read genji monogatari first before you read this then judge it as its sucks, what the hell, its too slow, and its crappy but the part where the MC is always asking for his aunts help is lame since the MC of where this is based is super good looking intelligent and charming

for those who are annoyed always for it being updated irregularly you should learn how to read kanji and read it raw it is being updated weekly in japan but not translated cause of the translators but dont blame the translators cause they are just translating it for fun and are not being paid so dont go sayin "its so annoying its only nine pages and its not updated regularly" just informing the people who doesnt know especially the the comment on top of me^ and even made a review about it rofl

He doesn't have any qualities to achieve a harem.

Most harems I read, the guy either has charisma or kindness.

In this case, he has his aunt. He has no depth, all he wants to do is hump. He has no growing feelings for any of the girls. Even with his aunt telling him the correct way, he follows his libido. Who freaking wants the girl that tortured you his? Please, I can't see this guy conquering anyone, all he does is think in his pants. Honestly...the guy is too damn girly, personality-wise and looks.
