Hiroya Oku is a manga creator best known for 'Gantz.' He wrote a number of strips called 'Hen' which were published in 'Weekly Young Jump' starting in 1992, and later collected in paperback (tankoubon).

A TV show called 'Hen(Hen) Suzuki-kun to Satou-kun' was broadcast on TV Asahi as part of their late night 'Weekend Drama' slot from April 6th to May 18th, 1996. It starred idol Aiko Satou as the male student Satou and Shinsuke Akagi as his classmate Suzuki. The original manga is a story of a macho guy who falls in love with an effeminate looking male classmate. In the TV show, they play the whole thing for laughs by having Satou played by a good-looking female idol. Both Aiko Satou and Shinsuke Akagi are clearly enjoying their roles, and it's all good fun.

From May 25 to June 29th, TV Asahi ran a second series called 'Hen Chizuru-chan to Azumi-chan' based on a separate manga, also by Oku. In this one, the brassy athletic Chizuru (played by Adult Video actress Asami Jou) falls for an innocent ingénue who just transferred into her class, Azumi (played by idol Miho Kiuchi). Jou and Kiuchi have a great time playing up their parts, and Shinsuke Akagi is even funnier here as Chizuru's wounded boyfriend. All three do some nudity, which was mosaic-ed in the original run, but both series' were later released on VHS with fewer cuts.

Oku's 'Hen' manga was also later adapted into an Original Video Anime released in 1997 by Toei Video.
