Kaoruko just happens to be one of the most beautiful women in the university, who has done much literary work using TheTaleOfGenji as a base, and is admired and respected by people of both genders. When Terumi arrives at her apartment, she quickly guesses that he was bullied due to his face and that he doesn't have any experience with women. Thinking it would be too boring for him to just lounge around the apartment she offers to help him get over his fear, in exchange of becoming her guinea pig for her research in her "[[GenderFlip Reverse]] [[WifeHusbandry Hikaru Genji Plan]]".

* DoomedByCanon: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]]. Those who know the story of ''TheTaleOfGenji'' will know that [[{{Yandere}} Rokujou no Miyasudokoro]] goes on to [[spoiler: ''kill'' two of her rivals out of love for Genji]]. Terumi makes that very same connection when Kaoruko brings up her {{Expy}} as the third target, and his reluctance makes Kaoruko change the target to Hanachirusato's {{Expy}}. Time will tell if [[{{Expy}} Miya Rokujou]], the fourth target, will follow suit here; already showing {{Yandere}} tendencies down to a tee.
* {{Expy}}: By the nature of the series, most major characters are to a greater or lesser extent Expies of characters from TheTaleOfGenji. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because Kaoruko is intentionally putting women in Terumi's path whose circumstances resemble those of characters from the Tale, who she almost certainly sought out for this purpose.

* SettingUpdate: Invoked, kind-of. The whole plot is kick-started when Kaoruko decides to use Terumi as a guinea pig in her plan to recreate the circumstances of TheTaleOfGenji for her research.

A modern-day re-imagining of TheTaleOfGenji by Inaba Minori. Terumi Minamoto is a young man [[{{Bishonen}} with a face pretty enough to make people think he is a girl]]. During his middle school years, Terumi was bullied by [[GangOfBullies women who were jealous of his face]] and as a consequence, developed a fear of women, to the point of attending an all-boys high school to escape his trauma.

Added DiffLines:

* RandomPasserbyAdvice: The "love master" advises Terumi that he's aiming too high for beautiful women right off the bat. He should try to focus on "plain" girls first and build his experience from there. By focusing totally on the girl and making her feel like she was good enough to be talked to, she will then give the guy her undivided attention.

* MoodWhiplash: During the Beauty Pageant arc, Kaoruko gives an inspiring speech about how men and women are both equally beautiful and their talents will now have the opportunity to shine during the event. It's ruined immediately afterwards when Professor Konoe [[spoiler:makes a bet with Kaoruko over whether Terumi can win, with the loser submitting to the winner. The creepy overtones, the slimy smiles, and the fact that Konoe is looking forward to practically''forcing'' himself on Kaoruko is enough to give readers pause]].

to:

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Chapter 165.Chapters 163 and 166 features [[spoiler:Rokujou and Yuu and Rokujou and Kaoruko kissing each other respectively]]. Both times it happened, it was not out of consent but that doesn't stop Terumi, and readers, from blushing.
