Amatsuka Megumi certainly does not act like the beautiful young teenager as she appears, in fact she acts more like a tomboy, or perhaps even a boy. Only her girlfriend and she remember that one day some several years ago, when they found a magic book with a tricky sprite. At his behest, Magumi made a wish to be a “man of men”, and the demon transformed him into a beautiful young lady. Now if only the other boys would understand that she is really a boy and stop bothering her... or.. him.

Though I can't say it was amazing, it was fun to watch nevertheless. This series is "somewhat" loosely similar to School Rumble in that you have the "tough" guy that's really gentle and sincere and he tries everything possible to get the protagonists attention or affection. The hardest part was trying to get use to the art/animation and contrary to what the caption says, Amatsuka Megumi is far from beautiful. The only thing that saved this series from an "Avoid" rating was the somewhat decent storyline; and it does improve through each episode. There's a few good laughs here and there as well.

After about the first dozen episodes, the story grows on you. You begin enjoying it and curious what the next episode will bring. In the end, I ended up really liking this series... thus my 9 & 9 for series & episode rating.

Watch Jan-Chan [series:961#967]
A young Amatsuka Megumi, along with his female childhood friend, Miki both remember finding a magic book at the riverside some many years ago. The book summoned a magic-sprite who promised to grant one wish. Megumi wished to be a “man-among-men”, but the deceptive sprite answered by making him the “most feminine” woman-of-all-women”. And now some several years later, Megumi has to face an existence in which only he and Miki remember a reality which no-one else understands, a different understanding in which Megumi’s family and friends now accept that she is an ultra-tom-girl, but a girl who will never back down from any fight. Megumi still feels as if he is a man-amongst-men, even if he is now a very attractive girl, but will the other teenage boys understand?

I have to admit that I really enjoy this series While it might be a bit slow at the start, it does does manage to tell an interesting story that is a bit off-beat and unusual. And the ending does have a twist.
