Synopsis
Michiko lost her farther at the age of 10 and lives with her mother. She is the humblest girl in the school. On her 17th birthday, her mother gives her a mobile phone. She is excited to have the first-ever mobile, but when her classmate, Taeko, finds it out, she forces Michiko to join the SNS site, Aba-Q. Taeko acts like the queen of the school as she owns the rare avatar in the SNS. Getting into the world of Aba-Q, Michiko puts a hand to whatever she thinks of to earn the cybermoney and dress up her avatar. When she wins the Best Dresser Award in Aba-Q, she replaces Taeko as the queen and sets up the “Avatar Club,” a weird group with the members adoring Machiko and wearing gas masks. Machiko, who undergoes surgery to obtain the same face as her avatar, starts taking her revenge that she has kept inside her soul for years.
