It’s not quite what she meant when she said she wanted to be small again. Chiyomi Horikiri (Maika Yamamoto) is a peppy high school girl who has a crush on Shunichi Minami (Taishi Nakagawa), a fellow classmate who is both smart and good-looking. They used to be very close when they were small kids and each other’s first love, but they grew apart after Shunichi’s father disappeared and changed his outlook on life. On a stormy night, Chiyomi has an argument with her parents and runs out of her house. While trying to avoid getting wet, Chiyomi wishes that she could go back to the happier time of her childhood. But suddenly, Chiyomi shrinks in size and becomes 15 cm tall! When Shunichi happens to come by and sees the tiny Chiyomi, he takes her home with him. Can Shunichi figure out how to help Chiyomi return to her normal size or is Chiyomi doomed to live out her life as Shunichi’s unseen companion? “My Little Lover – Minami Kun No Koibito” is a 2015 Japanese drama series directed by Kazuya Konaka. It is based on the manga “Minami Kun No Koibito” by Shungiku Uchida and produced by the same production team of the popular dramas “Mischievous Kiss: Love in TOKYO” and “Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in TOKYO.”
