Plot[edit]

Fairy Princess Astral is sent from the Fairy kingdom Athenia to the human world to live as a human, and to attend to a regular high school, for ninety days, after which she must make a decision: go back and eventually assume the throne of Athenia, or remain in the human world and become a human. For her time in the human world, Astral takes the place of a foreign exchange student named Winston who is sent to Athenia in her place.
