Cheeky Angel, volumes 9 and 10
Meg and Miki are talking about the arrangement behind Miki's upcoming marriage. Miki still insists on going through with it but Genzo arrives and claims he's in love with Miki. Genzo fights the punk that is scheduled to marry Miki.
Meg ends up ready to fight Miki's grandfather but finally gets him to see reality. Her grandfather explains to Miki just what happened to her parents in a fire.
Meg is still having trouble with figuring out whether her feelings are those of a girl, those of a boy, or somewhere in between.
Megumi's mother returns home. Her mother can only talk about Meg needing to have boyfriends and being more of a girl. Her mother wants to meet the guys Meg knows and if she doesn't approve of them she'll pull Meg out of the school. Ichiro gets interviewed by her mother first. Her mother actually ends up chosing Genzo.
Meg is still having problems when she reacts like an average girl would react to something like getting a frog thrown into her hands. Later she encounters a girl that knew Genzo and whom Genzo had saved from some punks when they were in junior high.
The girl talking to Meg puts Genzo down, telling her of some things he had done previously, but Meg disagrees with her assessment of Genzo. She also tells Meg that she asked Genzo out. Then a group of thugs appears and hassles the two girls. Their mistake.
The girl tells Meg that Genzo likes manly girls, so she figures if she acts really girlie Genzo will stop hanging around her. She's also trying to figure if the 'real' Genzo is evil or good. Miki thinks he's good.
Miki talks to Ichiro, Hitomonji and Tasuki and tells them she wants Meg to stay a girl and not change back to a boy. Meg meets Genzo's older sister, Setsuka. Later Meg and Miki go through a book of notes Genzo had made about how to be a man.
Later they get the magic book and try to decide how to get a wish granted in the right way. The being appears and asks Meg to make her decision, to continue to be a girl or to be a boy. Meg can't make her mind up, and the being tells her that before long she'll return to what she once was.
Suddenly Meg runs away and later she and Genzo have a talk.
