Minamoto-kun Monogatari is about a boy/ young man that has a fear of woman and is virtually kicked out of his home to live with his aunty, whom helps him overcome his fear of woman while being her guinea pig for a Hikari Genji project. He encounters many types of woman and details both characters thoughts on certain events.

I highly recommend everyone to read this.

Okay. I can't hold it anymore. First and foremost I won't say it's not interesting or well written. This is mostly me disscussing or venting my problems. The numbers are my honest thoughts. The characters are well written and the art is fantastic. Honesty if most of the confusion was blown away I wouldn't be so adamant at writing a review less than halfway through. And unless it has a twist that I cannot take I will read to the end. This novel is about 50/50 I could take it or leave it because it Kinda fits my likes it's about a 2 day read with devoting serious time to it. So I'm sure a casual reader will finish it in a week +. Overall it is long and the ch's are pretty normal length. Sometimes it leaves you on cliffhangers and sometimes it just confuses you.
(Careful where you read. Bold highlights how far. Opinion/slight spoilers/ full spoiling 1-120)

I read the reviews before starting and was hopeful. I mean I love harem styled manga/novels/anime. I search for new ones daily and when I found one with this many chapters I was ecstatic. And it's a different type from the start.

(If you know literally nothing at all slight spoilers). 

He's young he gets majorly bullied, (cliche right?) but. It's for a whole different reason that I've ever seen and he develops trauma from it. Understandable. I don't blame him.he's a harem MC whose going to essentially have a MASSIVE harem. Or as of the 100's it's looking like flings at this point. Okay. He's a scumbag right? It's an experiment. Okay I get it. But. What I do blame is this mc from the beginning that trauma? Seems pretty light. Pretty sure it's cured in no time. He's a super virgin, and then becomes an extreme virgin after losing his V card. And honestly for a 100 chapters gets no better. He's constantly embarrassed and stuttering. By the 6th girl he's no different. Every plan him or the "mastermind" come up with fails. Except one. So far. Everything seems to go negative by the end of the chapter it's a 70/30 to see if it bounces back in the least and most of the time it doesn't and they just move on. It's a ton of information to keep and move on with. I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY JAPANESE MC's ARE SO WEAK IN STORIES! PERIOD! He can talk, seduce, belittle, rage, FUCK, but he always is embarrased stutters and will have perverted conversations in his head.

(Real spoilers read no further if you're not wanting it to be reviewed it goes into my real reason to rant)

 He's so against incest but he went for his cousin for his second girl. And his first is his AUNT! Get over it. You crossed that line 123 chapters ago! Just do it or shut up! He's supposed to be 18! He acts like he's 10 and just saw his first porn mag for the first time! This has nothing to do with trauma at this point. Not to mention he declares like ch 1 he's going to be Casanova already.also an elementary schooler shows up and he says no no no but in his head he's constantly thinking about it. Stop or go. Pick already. I honestly don't understand the premise over the lifestyle, book whatever his aunts whole research is about from the get go which lets be honest is the whole premise. A weak protagonist from day one is expected but man. Within 100 chapters you like to see progression. I don't expect him to be a stud but man. He's weak all the way through. This is my opinion and only relevant to me. oh. Also people say it's addicting in reviews. I'll admit that, but not because it's so good because you hope it'll turn better. That's all.

The story of a colege student afraid of women but with a aunt that his the best wingman EVER. Really entertaining and alluring read. It will easily suck you in like a black hole.

This is a recreation of the Tales of Genji ( a casanova Japanese-style), wich has its pro/cons. since some parts of the story were almost unecessary.

IF not for the plot holes and the allusions to incest it would even be better
