** Needless to say Murasaki's adoption of her daughter is rather hard on Lady Akashi and gives her another reason to be jealous of Murasaki, and vice-versa. But eventually the two women bond over their common love for the little princess and an amused Genji finds himself listening to warm praises of Akashi from her formerly jealous rival Murasaki.

* DoesHeHaveABrother: Played literally and very {{squick}}y. In one chapter, after being spurned repeatedly by Utsusemi, Genji beds her younger brother (to the boy's delight), stating that he will do just as well.

Not to be confused with ''VideoGame/{{Genji}}'', which is (''[[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory loosely]]'') based on the ''Tale of the Heike''. See also ''Anime/GenjiMonogatariSennenki'', a historical shōjo retelling of the story by Waki Yamato, and ''Manga/MinamotoKunMonogatari'', a more comedic and [[HotterAndSexier sexy]] modern-day retelling by Inaba Minori.

* LadyInWaiting: Numerous. Even relatively low ranking characters like Yugao and Ukifune are surrounded by bevies of still more modestly born lady attendants.

* ExoticExtendedMarriage: Polygyny isn't that unusual but the matrilocal nature of Heian marriage is. It was perfectly normal for a young bride to go on living with her parents for ''years'' after the wedding. Ditto for mistresses and concubines. As a young man Genji has no home at all, just a room in the palace, a standing invitation at his in-laws and assorted lovers he can crash with. Eventually he gets himself a house in the third ward where he can raise Murasaki but it isn't until he's achieved high government office that he builds a palace large enough to house ''all'' his women and brings them to live together under his roof.
