  1. I’ve been interested in reading the Tales of Genji after reading this beautiful novel. I do hope that I eventually learn enough Japanese to become fluent enough to read the original novel, but until then, can anyone advise me on which English translated edition of the Tales of Genji to pick up? I’m hoping to find a translation that has footnotes to explain the metaphors and events mentioned in the text.

  2. dam , the last vol side story plus epilogue just spoiled my mood for continue reading T.T , why not choose harem you dam IDIOT , at least choose asai or Tsuyako

  3. Im torn between hono and asa. Btw thanks hellping for the translations this ln series is one of my all time favorites

  4. It is inevitable that honoka should be his girl…but seriously this harem is so hard to choose from but I’d like it to end as a harem still and not choosing 1 girl
    my choice would be yu>tsuyako>aoi>asai>hono

  5. Hell yeah ! Finally the big damn kiss ! To think I accidentally stumble upon this series from reading the manga adaptation and I can say I’m not dissappinted.

    Sailing with favourite shop toot toot ! Thanks for translating this series Master Ping, Gale Erick signing out.

  6. I don’t want it to end!!!!! I liked the story so much, I laughed, cried, i had so much empathy with each character, so bittersweet… anyway thanks for your hard work Ping!

  7. Thank you, ping-san. I’m really got attracted by Hikaru ga Chikyuu series. I admire Author’s capability to create this series, when she inovated with fuse “tale of genji” and “the little prince” plus her mind too. Other series from author, interested me too, but this series really hit the mark. I hope ping-san will translate other series with this sense or genre. If you do, please inform me. I will stay to looking forward for them.
