    This seems interesting! I would like to read novels about ancient Japan. They seem interesting and you’ll get to know what they did before and how they acted and spoke.

    Yey to women in Japan! They really contributed a lot to literature, ne? :lol:

      A lot of my Japanese friends (my old roommates from college, co-workers, even Kyo LOL XD) dreaded Genji Monogatari as it was one of their required readings in school. They said it was slow, dragging, hard to read (since it’s in ancient Japanese), and boring. My aunt actually got me a condensed version of that novel (condensed, there were actually more chapters than that) and even in English, it was pretty difficult to understand.

      I heard there was an epic drama series or something, but I also know that there is an anime version.
