Story Intro
 
Mai is the daughter of a couple who run a small snack shop, while her grandparents lead a troupe of stage magicians. She idolizes a legendary stage magician named Emily Howell and, when her grandparents move in just down the street, she seizes the opportunity to follow in her idol's footsteps. Since she's inexperienced and clumsy, Mai isn't very good at magic tricks, but the troupe is happy to let her help out, and even allow her to appear on stage as an assistant for their act.
 
While helping her grandparents move in, she notices a strange, floating light and follows it upstairs. There she sees many lights appear inside a mirror, along with many reflections of herself. Suddenly, a bracelet appears on her wrist, and a stuffed animal flying squirrel named Topo comes to life and explains to her that the bracelet is a gift which will allow her to transform and do REAL magic.
 
One day during a performance, Topo causes a disaster and Mai has no choice but to transform into Magical Emi (a name she chooses in honor of her idol), a young woman with short green hair who amazes the crowd with feats of magic and saves the show. Magical Emi is seen by a TV producer named Kogane, who happened to be in the audience. He runs JTV, and soon contracts the troupe to appear on his TV station, excited about the new teenage addition to their act.
 
This series has its comedic moments, but also has a great deal of heartbreak, as we watch Mai strive to achieve her dream of becoming a stage magician, without the "cheat" of using real magic to perform her tricks. The story shows Mai's relationships with her parents, younger brother, extended family, neighbor and classmate, and a young boxer with whom she finds the beginning of romance.
