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!

This manga is a nonsensical melodrama. It takes simple problems, like faking a hypnotism, and drags it out to absurd proportions. It also uses unrealistic problems and behaviors to further the romance - if the main character suddenly can't see, he should go to a hospital, not go to school and pretend nothing's wrong.

As for the storytelling, it's too abrupt. Major themes, like the handshaking and love for his new mother, just appear and disappear at whim. The characters don't develop in reaction to events, but just gain emotions whenever the story needs to move forward. The confusion makes it impossible to get into the story.

I actually read it. First I liked it, but now it drew a bit complicated and also a bit hurtful when you feel for the main characters. But 7 volumes is ok, not too long, if it's longer I'll let it die like Ouke no Monshou.

CONFUSING. Don't read it...

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.

Actually I've been a little bit weary of shoujo manga because of too much cliche. But I tried this manga anyway, just for the heck of it. And I was pleasantly rewarded. The manga is not just fun, it's rather in-depth too. Especially when it's about Hikaru no Kimi' life. Hazuki's story is not properly developed though.

After reading this manga, I feel compelled to read the Tales of Genji. But I don't know whether there's an English version. Anyway, it does gives a little more credit to this manga to be based on a classic novel.

I'd recommend this manga for those who are suckers of romance, or those who are up for a wacky love story.

Well,I enjoyed this story.I can't say I agree with some of the other comments about Midori no Kimi.At least she tried to stop him,and she did.Then It got kinda' confusing,and yeah I'm not exactly sure what happened.But the point is I didn't,I mean I did like the ending,kinda',alittle,sorta',no I didn't like how it ended.But i liked the story and thats all that matters! (I need to be more harsh on the rating) 9/10

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.

Well, I personally find this manga quite confusing, the way not only the mangaka jumps around time periods, but the characters themselves do as well. Its a decent story, though.

A redemptive love story

The concept of Gekka no Kimi begins with redemption. Written in the space of two different time periods, we are thrown into the past and present lives of Hikaru Genji. Because of his careless and cruel behavior as Hikaru Genji in the past, present day Hazuki cannot physically stand to be near any member of the opposite sex. Yet, one day Hazuki meets a girl whom he falls in love with at first sight.

Although Gekka no Kimi does have moments of over-the-top angst, I still find myself drawn to the original concept of this story. Initially, this was about Hikaru Genji getting a second chance as his reincarnation, Hazuki, to redeem himself. But the story takes a slight twist as we get farther along, and things do stay somewhat interesting.

Still highly recommended to other shoujo fans because Ako Shimaki never fails to entertain.

Edited for update.
