10-year-old Atsuko “Akko-chan” Kagami is transformed into a 22-year-old college student by a compact mirror which was enchanted by a magical spirit. Excited by her new-found access to as much make-up and fashion as she can handle, Akko-chan thinks, “Adulthood’s the best!”

Soon, Akko-chan meets a potential love interest in an elite cosmetics executive whose company is at risk of a hostile takeover. In order to fight against this, he’s been working hard on a new product line, and Akko-chan begins formulating a wild idea that might help.
