Megumi Amatsuka, a rough and tumble nine-year-old boy, always dreamt of becoming the "manliest man on earth." Upon receiving a book of magic from a sorcerer whom he saved from a group of local thugs, Megumi summons a genie in order to make a wish. But due to a sick twist of fate, the genie turns out to be an evil one, and Megumi winds up being the "womanliest woman on earth"! Six years later... Megumi is the most desirable girl in school, but deep within her hot-mama facade is the same trash-talkin', punk-stompin' boy.

The story of a boy's mind stuck in the body of a girl and a spell transformed him from an energetic little boy to the most wonderful woman in the world. He has but one dream, to become the most manly man that ever lived, even if he has to live out this dream as a woman. In his/her search for the book that might return her manhood she goes to a normal high school and makes an entourage of male friends of all shapes sizes and... colorful personalities. In the countless battles and other experiences she has with her new friends she begins to read more

I really loved this manga because it had amazing characters like Megumi, a great art style, a really nice plot, wasn't too long or too short, and was quite funny!
The ending was pretty good too, I didn't really expect it!
It had the perfect balance between comedy and serious, which is something I really like! It had plenty of action and romance, too! :D
I think if you like alot of different genres, or action, romance and comedy, you'll really like this manga! I really reccomend it! Thanks for reading!

First of all these manga bear the same idea of esse quam videri. To put it in a nutshell, until the very end of both manga almost all characters are trying to find out an identity of main heroes. All jokes are solely based on this concept of contrast between appearance and a true nature of our heroes. In Angel Densetsu we have a fearsome main hero with a heart of an angel, in Cheeky Angel we have a sweet main heroine which can beat you up to a pulp. Aside from this similarity, both manga are packed with fights and scrambles.

Well, it's about a boy who gets turned into a girl (all the way down to his/her genes) but still for 6 years has been trying to get turned back into a boy (it was an evil genie that did it). The genie reversed his wish to be the manliest of all men. So it isn't surprising that now she's beautiful, but can fight really well. She starts attracting a group of guys ranging from the pervert geek to the tough guy gang leader. There's a LOT of physical fighting going on as well. She is beginning to realize that her memories of how boys think at age 9 has not kept up with the way boys think at 15. Maybe she doesn't think as much as a boy as she once did. But she doesn't quite think like a girl either. The art isn't at the same level as Pretty Face, however.
