Katie Minami (Kaede Minami in Japanese) is a cheerful and energetic eighth grader. When it comes to boys, however, she is hopelessly shy.
One day, on her way home from school, Katie walks into a mysterious shop and buys a blue cocoa mug. When she reaches home, she casually peeks into the bottom of the mug and discovers an engraved note, which says, "If you pray for your wish while pouring hot cocoa into the mug, a love fairy ("muglox") will appear and grant your every wish." The skeptical but curious Katie follows the directions and announces her wish to date Dylan Yuki (Setsu Yuuki in Japanese). Suddenly, the adorable blue Mirmo (Mirumo in Japanese) appears! We soon find out, however, that this cute little muglox would rather eat chocolate and create mischief than help Katie.
Mirmo, it seems, is prince of the muglox world. Horrified at the prospect of having to marry Rima (Rirumu in Japanese), his princess bride-to-be, Mirmo has escaped the muglox world. Hot on his heels, however, are Rima, Yatch (Yashichi in Japanese) the bounty hunter, and a cast of hundreds of muglox ranging from the good to the bad to the nutty. This gang of adorable troublemakers will see to it that school life for Katie and her friends is never the same . . .
