“Himitsu no Akko-chan” is about a young elementary school girl called Akko-chan who received a magical compact mirror that allows her to transform into anything she wishes. The movie is going to feature an original tale, with Akko-chan having to transform herself into a 22-year-old adult woman in order to protect her crush and first love, an elite salary man played by Okada Masaki. Depending on the circumstances she always chooses another occupation in order to seamlessly fit into the current situation, including a figure skater, a cabin attendant, an office lady, a policewoman, and a racing motorcyclist.
The movie is based on Fujio Akatsuka's manga "Himitsu no Akko-chan" published in Ribon from July, 1962 - September 1965.
Cast & Credits
The story has a faint touch of heart. It was warm, but not hot. I have no feelings towards the characters at the end of the movie.
It reminded me of the fairy tales that I watched and read. "They lived happily ever after. The End."
I do like the characters. Although your character's movement was a little too exaggerated. At one scene, surrounded by dull business attires, it reminded me of "Legally Blonde".
Although the story was a child's play, it was okay. I don't really pay attention to the background music.
It was mostly sunny, bright, and very cheery. I don't believe I would watch it again. It was a bit unrealistic for me. There was a readily prepared prince charming at the beginning of the movie. It was fair since came from a children's anime series.
