A magical spell has transformed Megumi Amakusa from a boy into a girl. And not just any girl, but the womanliest of women. Whatever that might mean. The end result, now that high school has begun, is that Megumi is a reluctant school idol whose gruff, boylike personality doesn't deter male attention at all.

Thematically the story seems to be looking at how society, as a whole down to our closest friends, shape us, or attempt to shape us, depending on our external appearance as "male" or "female."

Decent. Funny, but don't like how pushy Genzo is. Meg is entertaining. The tone of the book came across as creepy more than funny to me. 3.5 stars. ...more

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.

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. The boy with Miki beat them up but was slightly injured in the process.

They had met a g

The concept for 'Cheeky Angel' is the sort of hilarious, crazy idea you expect from manga and anime. Megumi Amatsuka the most beautiful girl in school - an angel descended from heaven - but the truth is: she's a boy! Megumi came into posession of a magic book and a creature within offered her a wish and she wish to be a 'man among men'. The naughty spirit chose to hear that as 'a woman among women' and turned Megumi into the angel she is today.

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

This was a fun concept--a boy that gets turned into a hot girl but still retains his boy demeanor (ie kicking everyone's butt). The art was so-so and it got a little repetitive, but it was still fun to read. ...more

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.
