Amu Hinamori is a 5th grade transfer student who is fashionably cool, tough and independent. Despite this, she is also a girl who seems unapproachable, both at home and at school. In reality, the "Cool and Spicy" role she plays is just a facade that she unconsciously plays. In fact, like most other girls, Amu is childish, timid and romantic. Desperate to behave the way she really feels, she goes to bed one night praying for a miracle to happen. Much to her surprise, she wakes up the following morning to find three decorated eggs on her. From that morning on, Amu is shocked to find herself starting to behave the way she really feels. When each egg hatches, a little Guardian Character emerges to help Amu express her different selves; Ran, Miki, and Su. he Guardian Characters aid Amu in discovering who she truly is and help fulfill Amu's dreams. Amu's life becomes much more complex as she struggles to deal with her "would-be" selves and the Seiyo Elementary's Guardians, who recruit Amu to search for X Eggs and X Characters, the corrupted forms of peoples' dreams.

To Amu's further surprise, she is invited to join her school's Student Council called, "The Guardians". She then discovers that this group is, in fact, made up of students who all have eggs similar to hers.

What is happening? Amu's adventure has just begun!

The Easter Company is extracting people's eggs in search of a special egg called the Embryo. The Embryo is believed to able to grant any wish to the one who possesses it. However, the process creates X Eggs and X Characters.

Amu's three Guardian Characters, Ran, Miki, and Su, aid her in her quest of self-discovery. Each Guardian Character represents an aspect of Amu's true self. Ran represents Amu's desire to be more honest and athletic, Miki represents Amu's desire to be more level headed and artistic, while Su represents Amu's desire to be more caring and improve her domestic skills. Moreover, the Character Guardians are more than mere mascots who help Amu learn about her true self. They can also perform a transformation where Amu's personality is replaced by an entirely different one.

However, Amu is not the only one with Guardian Characters. Each of the Guardians—Tadase Hotori, Nadeshiko Fujisaki, Kukai Soma, and Yaya Yuiki—have their own Guardian Characters. Amu also encounters Ikuto Tsukiyomi and Utau Hoshina, two siblings who also have Guardian Characters and are employed by the Easter Company to search for the Embryo.
