A shojo manga-style take on Big, Akatsuka Fujio's Himitsu no Akko-chan is now a live-action feature film after multiple anime and live-action series. Directed by Kawamura Taisuke (Nodame Cantabile the Movie), the Akko-chan film follows the story's basic premise: A young girl is given a mirror that magically transforms her into an adult. In this take of the tale, Akko-chan enters the adult world of office politics to save the lipstick company she loves. Haruka Ayase (Hotaru no Hikari) gives an adorable performance as the adult form of Akko-chan, playing a 10-year-old girl living inside a 22-year-old adult's body. Okada Masaki (Confession) also co-stars in this charming fantasy comedy as Akko-chan's idealistic boss.
In love with make-up, 10-year-old Akko-chan can't wait to grow up and become a woman. One day, meets a spiritual being who gives her a magical mirror and an enchantment spell that transforms her into an adult woman (Haruka Ayase). By pure coincidence, the adult Akko-chan manages to score a job in the development department of her favorite cosmetics company, under idealistic young manager Naoto (Okada Masaki). Even though Akko-chan's childlike persona confounds her co-workers, she soon finds ways to breathe fresh life into the company. However, Akko-chan soon learns of a conspiracy to take down the troubled firm and decides to go on a mission to save it!
