Through the mirror… A tale told darkly. Before you make a deal with a girl in a mirror, reflect seriously on the source of the offer. Ichika Tachibana fails to take this advice in order to retrieve a lost charm, and as a result suddenly ends up with the magical forces of a Djinn at her command. Sounds like a good deal, right? Wrong. At first things seem wondrous, with her new friend Manatsu assisting her via text messages and the occasional spell; but as her powers grow, Ichika’s situation quickly goes from magical to nightmarish, and she finds herself drawn into an ever expanding web of deceptions, lies and increasingly dangerous situations. For what she’s really done is subjected herself to seeing mankind as the Djinn see them. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to place a high value on human life. Not all fairy tales are for children as small charms lead to deadly conclusions in UTA-KATA
Ichika receives a pendant adorned with 12 stones from one of her home tutors. While cleaning on the day before summer holiday, she misplaces her phone and finds it INSIDE a huge mirror. Suddenly, a girl named Manatsu Kuroki appears before her…
Ichika is devastated by all the lies she’s had to come up with, ever since her new “pen-pal”, Manatsu, arrived. While in the park, the two meet up with Ichika’s friend, Maki, along with her shifty friend Ryou, who happens to take a liking to Ichika.
What better way to start off the summer holiday than at the beach! While leaving the beach, Ichika is reunited with her childhood friend, Nao Shimizu, who was less than excited to see her…
Ichika’s parents enroll her in a summer program to create “fond summer memories”, but things take a turn for the worst. When a bungalow mate sneaks out at night to meet a guy and doesn’t return, its up to Ichika, “The Stickler” to investigate!
The girls meet up with a couple of guys at the beach to watch a Fireworks display. Ichika questions her ability to “see”, while using the spirit Djinn’s power. She soon realizes “The Truth” that the Djinn reveals is sometimes hard to swallow.
Ichika becomes ill after staying out in the rain, watching a mysterious confrontation with Saya and Sei from afar. What mysterious relationship could these two share? Ichika’s latent feelings are soon revealed.
After the current turn of events, Ichika is embroiled with jealously and envy over the untold connection between Saya and Sei, so much that she can’t think straight! It’s almost as if she, herself, is being controlled by the reins of a higher deity…
Ichika’s class does volunteer work at a rehabilitation center to help heal the people’s hearts. When an unruly patient degrades Ichika’s kindhearted sentiments, things get volatile in room 301.
Ichika is tormented by untamed heightened senses received from the Djinn’s power so much that she soon becomes a threat to everyone around her. The pendant, which was at one point a gift, has become a curse. Don’t miss the shocking revelation!
Sei is turned to stone before he is able to divulge the truth behind Ichika’s fate. With unwavering courage, Ichika is able to face reality and persevere with her struggles after a much heart-felt and unexpected “reunion”.
With only one week remaining before the move, Ichika enjoys much needed quality time with her friends at the beach. The truth behind Kai and Sei’s relationship is revealed.
As a chosen Child of the Trials, Ichika is tested by Saya to choose between life and death of humanity.
Ichika and Sei share one final day with their beloved counterparts.
