Nana Suzuki is an ordinary schoolgirl with a crush on one Yuichi Kamichika. One day, while trying to bake a cake for Yuichi
, she stumbles on her scientist grandfather's secret experiment to separate the light of a rainbow into seven crystals. Naturally, the experiment goes awry, and splits Nana into seven versions of herself
, each with her own matching rainbow crystal. Now, Nana must find a way to integrate the crystals together, or else all seven of her will vanish.
