Megumi-chan is a girl with a secret past. She used to be a boy until she met a person she thought was a magic user. This person gave him/her a magical book from which a genie appears to grant one wish when blood is applied to it. Megumi made the wish to be a man in a man's body but the genie has a twist: he grants wishes backwards so he turns Megumi-kun aged 9 to Megumi-chan. Years pass and Megumi enters High School where she immediately beats up the school bully who of course falls in love with her. She is looking for that book again to be able to reverse the spell placed upon her.

Loved it; would rewatch; would recommend.

It might just be because it's been a long time since I've seen an anime set in high school, but I really enjoyed what this show had to offer. I went into it thinking it would offer a perspective on gender identity issues, which honestly made me hesitant based on worries that it would come off like an unwanted sermon. While it does touch on such issues, it never felt like I was being talked at. Heck, it might have been a more interesting story had it gone deeper into the gender issues.

Rather than get stuck on the gender issues, ...

good show, great openings, Megumi is BAE, adaption missed the mark, especially at the end.

decent OST, though some tracks have a doom/gloom feel, one in particular sounds like bad campy tv drama lol. Both openings are super solid, make sure to check them out on youtube to get people turned on to this story please, thank you!

plot is engaging enough, if you're curious to know what Megumi's fate ends up as.

~~speaking of, if you're reading this, most important take away if you haven't watched Cheeky

Mixed Feelings
i hate this show so much. so much. i put it aside after 15 episodes because of how bad it was. i only kept watching because i really liked megumi as a character. i'm glad i did! because i also love this show a lot lol.

i honestly don't even remember much about the first 15 episodes due to how long it has been since i've watched them. maybe they weren't so bad, but they probably weren't that good either lmao. i just remember being really disgusted. i think it was pointless. i didn't really care one way or another. and it was disgusting. i don't ...
