The story opens with a guy giving a girl a hard time. Another girl appears and knees the guy in the groin and tells him off.

Miki talks to Megumi, the girl who took care of the guy, and it's obvious that there is something unusual about Megumi. The story then goes into flashback mode, six years previously, when Megumi was a boy. He and Meg were out by a creek when some other young boys wanted to cause trouble.

This review is for the series as a whole:

Hijinks! So many hijinks. I love gender benders. They're so humorous, because the characters do such absurd things. They also tend to be more friendly to all kinds of sexuality.

At the beginning, I really liked this. Meg so desperately wants to be a boy again, but she's a gorgeous girl, and ends up getting this group of guys that follow her around and want to date her. Her friend, Miki, tries to talk her into accepting one of the boys and life as a girl.

Megumi enchants at a glance, but she still a rough a

My first gender-bender. And I liked it. I did not fall in love with the characters yet, but I have a thing for punks with big hearts.
