For those who don’t know, the plot of a manga titled Minamoto-kun Monogatari goes somewhat like this:
“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 *(will censor this) and tells him that he will be her “guinea pig” in her reverse Hikaru Genji project.”
I remember giving this series an attempt, as I was interested to see the work’s connection or similarity to the Tale of Genji. The Tale of Genji is an eminent “classic work of Japanese literature written by the noblewoman and lady-in-waiting Murasaki Shikibu in the early years of the 11th century”. I also wanted to see how Minamoto would grow and overcome his fear of women. Or retaliate against the bully girls. Well, it turns out….he sleeps with a bunch of women….yeah. Well, it is still enjoyable in its own way, I suppose. On MAL, its rating is 7.73 and popularity is #131. For those who feel curious about it, feel free to give it a try. I wouldn’t recommend it to those below 15 though.
If you want me to translate the next chapter too, please leave a like/comment on blog or a message on twitter/MAL. Just so that I know this makes the difference for some people out there. This is my MAL, so add me here if you don’t have wordpress account. You can tell me if you want the next chapter translated, and I will notify you if I am going to do it and when it’s done.
