Misaki Suzuhara, a young teenage girl, has just moved to Tokyo to live with
her aunt Shoko and attend middle school after spending the money her absent mother had been sending her. Misaki
is of a shy and timid nature, often worrying about how small and
unathletic she is. She begins playing Angelic Layer after seeing the
"white angel" Athena on a big screen outside Tokyo Station, because it can help her show others that being small isn't always a disadvantage.
