Megumi-chan is a teen-aged girl with a secret past. She used to be a boy until she saved a magician from a gang of boys and was given a magical book. As a boy when he bled into the book a genie appeared to grant one wish. Megumi wished to be a man, but the genie granted the wish backwards so he turned into Megumi-kun, a girl. Years pass and Megumi grows up to be the most beautiful of girls but still acts and fights like the boy that she really is. Upon entering High School she immediately beats up the school bully who falls in love with her. Thus begins her adventures looking for that book to change her back and fighting off both admirers and her on-coming femininity. Written by laird-3

Ah hem . . A slight correction.
26 July 2004 | by tzer0See all my reviews

Pay no attention to that man behind the previous post . . . The main character in this anime is not Megumi Hayashibara, as was stated in the previous post. The main character is in fact, Megumi Amatsuka. But he was right about one thing . . . This series is hilarious! And I can understand his confusion (though he could have just looked up at the cast list) -- Megumi Amatsuka is the main character and is played by voice actress Megumi Hayashibara. And like Megumi Hayashibara's most famous character, Ranma, in this anime she plays a martial arts boy who turns into a girl. But it's there that the similarity ends. Because this is no water curse -- where a hot bath or a tea kettle will change her back into a him. He is stuck as a she, until the magic periot that changed him into a her changes him back that is. If the sadistic sprite will change him back at all.

He asked this evil imp to be a Man Among Men. Either the little demon has bad hearing, or an awfully funny way of filling wishes. Maybe he's just plain mean! Either way, Megumi is stuck as a girl until the spell can be reversed. This leads to some very funny High School Hijinks. And what about dating? Yikes! Megumi is not only a Woman Among Women, she's the hottest chick in school! And her suitors, though they want to help her, aren't exactly anxious for her to change back. If you love Ranma 1/2 you love this one too. It carries on the Ranma / Megumi Hayashibara tradition of the "Gender Reversal Genre" admirably.
