Episode One: Happening One - Ongo
The story starts with a "Raiders of the Lost Ark" style opening. An explorer stumbles across a lost ruin in deep in the jungles of New Guinea and discovers a strange looking statue. He takes it and leaves.
Elsewhere, in Japan, it is the end of the day at an average elementary school. A young boy sprints out of the school, intent on escaping cleaning duties. The other students protest, and a lively 10-year girl named Natsumi gives chase. But, it ends up that she is just trying to skip the chores as well. She dashes by her fellow escapee but collides with a mail box when she looks back to gloat. Natsumi recovers and heads on home.
When she gets home, she learns that her dad is back from his long trip. He works for Japanese corporation that had plans for the jungle in New Guinea, but now those plans have been put on hold while the archeologists study the site. He shows off the artifacts that he brought home while the family eats dinner. When he pulls out an idol, he offers it to Natsumi as a souvenir. She finds it rather odd and questions the validity of taking such an object without permission. Her father justifies the theft by saying that he should be compensated for the time and lost opportunities that the discovery has caused him, and therefore, it is okay. Natsumi reluctantly accepts the gift but runs away to her room embarrassed when her father suggest that they should bathe together as a family as they use when she was little.
Up in Natsumi's room, she comments to herself that she is still being treated like a little girl instead of a young woman. She removes the gems from the idol and turns them into earrings. As she admires them in the mirror, she catches a glimpse of a face out of the corner of her eye. She is startled but finding no one else in the room, she goes to bed.
Once asleep, Natsumi has a very strange dream. In it, she meets the Earth God, a strange old man with an enormous phallus. He tells Natsumi of the coming of a dangerous and powerful god called "Ongo" who could destroy the Earth. He then informs Natsumi that she has been selected to become the defender who will protect the Earth. He gives her a necklace with skulls and beads on it and proceeds to teach her a very lewd dance. He tells her that when she is in great danger, she must perform this dance. Natsumi, of course, disagrees. But despite her protests, he repeats his instructions as the dream ends.
Natsumi awakes to find a small warrior boy hovering over her. She assumes that she still dreaming and goes back to sleep. The boy, feeling slighted, shouts at her. Natsumi is in no mood for "noisy dreams" and tells him so. She then decides to determine if she is still sleeping by pinching the boy's cheeks. She then realizes that she is not asleep.
The boy, now angry, declares that no one gets away with treating Ongo like that. Natsumi is shocked to learn that this boy is the demon from her dream. She further learns that he had been sealed within the idol and that she released him when she removed the jewels.
Ongo dashes upstairs and is shocked to see modern Japan. This leads to a "discovery" montage of sounds and images as Ongo explores. Eventually, they end up outside the home of Natsumi's friend. There, Ongo tastes whale meat for the first time and is addicted. He demands more, but there is none left. Determined to get more, he inscribes a magic circle into a tabletop (as his magic requires symbols carved in wood to work) and performs a chant and dance. This summons a whale, along with a fair amount of the ocean, to the small room.
Natsumi and Ongo suddenly find themselves sailing down the main street of the now flooded town on the back of the whale. Natsumi demands that Ongo return the whale and dry up the water but he can't - no wood. Just then, the Japanese military attacks, convinced that this has to be some new type of weapon.
Ongo pleads with Natsumi for her to use her magic but she refuses to perform her dance with so many people watching. But eventually she gives in. She performs the provocative dance and is transformed into ridiculously over-endowed goddess Mie.
Strangely, Natsumi seems to take the sudden transformation from a prepubescent girl into fully grown and absurdly over-endowed woman with little comment. She immediately sets to work and causes the whale to fly. This gets it out of the way of the navy but puts it right in the path of the air force.
As they attack, Natsumi/Mie hears the voice of the Earth God, who consuls her to dance and chant a special spell. The spell cause the whale to vanish but the dance is little more than another opportunity for jiggling.
The story closes with Natsumi arriving back home and finding dinner about ready. How she changed back is left unexplained. Her mother tells her that they are having a very special dinner and Natsumi goes into the kitchen to see what it is. To her dismay, it is whale meat. This is where the episode ends.
Episode Two - Happening Two: Rongo
At the opening, a mysterious woman observes the antics of Natsumi/Mie and Ongo. She suddenly realizes that she recognizes Ongo as her long lost master and she swears to retrieve him from the strange temptress (Mie) that has possession of him.
Meanwhile, at Natsumi's home, Natsumi comes out of the bathroom, gripping her stomach. Her mom asks whether she has a tummy ache and Natsumi says no. Her mother then realizes that Natsumi has "become a woman" and decides that they should have an impromptu celebration. Natsumi flees in embarrassment.
On her way to school, she encounters Takuma, the boy who's home was destroyed in the whale incident. He over hears Natsumi's explanation to Ongo of the nature of her discomfort, and she again finds herself in an awkward situation. Deciding a good offense is the best defense, she pretends not to hear Takuma's questions and instead accuses him of reading a dirty magazine, hidden inside his innocent looking newspaper. She grabs the paper and is shocked to see a full page picture of Mie, with her very prominent chest, on display.
Takuma then expounds on the virtues of Mie (focusing on Mie's ample chest) while Natsumi takes some hidden pride in how sexy her transformed body is. But, then her feminine outrage is triggered by Takuma's obsession with Mie's chest (his eyes at one point become female nipples and he pronounces that small chested woman have no value). Natsumi takes out her anger by punching Takuma, "Ranma 1/2 style" (i.e. flying through the air), which causes him to collide with Nami, a classmate.
In the nurse's office, Nami lies recovering from the collision. She wakes up, and both Natsumi and Takuma apologize. Nami accepts the apologies and then asks for her book. It turns out that Nami has a fascination with magic and has been reading a book about the magic of New Guinea. She wishes that she could visit the island. This gives Natsumi an idea. She invites both of them to join her after school to visit her dad at the exhibit of New Guinea artifacts that he is planning.
So, after school, they all head over to the gallery. They enter and start to look at the relics. They find a statue that looks like Mie and Takuma announces that he is in love. Natsumi gives up trying to admonish Takuma and leaves to find her dad. Nami wanders off to look at the rest of the exhibit.
Nami eventually discovers an idol in a room all by itself and recognizes it as the water goddess. Just then, she is sucked into a pool of water that had quietly formed beneath her feet.
Meanwhile, Natsumi locates her dad's office but a note on his computer says he has left for lunch. Ongo, camping out within the earrings, sees the screen and asks what that is. As Natsumi explains, he then notices a drawing on the wall. He claims to recognize the shapes but Natsumi says that is only because it is a drawing of the layout of the exhibition hall. They leave to go back and find the others.
Natsumi returns to the Mie statue to find Takuma fast asleep in the lap of the sculpture. Natsumi wakens him rather forcefully and asks where is Nami. Just then, she enters but seems different. The threesome then leaves the show.
The next day, Natsumi heads off to school with great enthusiasm. Ongo asks why she is so happy and she simply states that she is excited to be able to resume swimming lessons after five long days. They quickly get to school and settle into class.
But Nami has other plans. She slides up behind to Natsumi and wraps her arms around her. She then places her lips near Natsumi's right ear and begins to speak in a very breathy, seductive voice. She wants "Master Ongo" back and she wants him now.
Natsumi is very embarrassed by Nami's actions and the rest of class has very funny reactions as well. Among the boys, the scene causes an explosion of nosebleeds while the girls cry and cling to one another in fear. When Natsumi doesn't give Ongo back immediately, Nami attempts to take Natsumi's skull necklace. This causes a huge shock to surge through the room, "charring" everyone. Natsumi explains that she tried to warn Nami not to touch the necklace because anyone who tries to remove gets shocked. Nami then shifts her attack.
She begins to perform a magic dance, which results in her being transformed into Rongo, a very attractive (and more humanly proportioned) woman. She unleashes a water attack that pins Natsumi and sweeps away her classmates. Then Nami/Rongo challenges Natsumi/Mie to a duel for the right to posses Ongo.
Natsumi agrees and does her transformation dance. At the completion, Rongo comments, tongue in cheek, that it was the "sleaziest transformation" she had ever seen. The two then leave the demolished classroom and meet to duel at the swimming pool. There, Rongo sets the rules of the duel.
The first to down the plane that is flying overhead wins. Natsumi/Mie recognizes the plane as am American military craft and realizes that this could cause a war. She decides that she must stop Rongo at all costs.
During all this, Ongo has sought shelter in a nearby storage shed. Unfortunately, Takuma has chosen the same shed a the perfect place to peep on Mie from. The two discover each other and Takuma gives chase to Ongo. This results in Ongo performing a spell to escape Takuma. The end effect is a massive explosion that not only frees him of the troublesome Takuma but also knocks out both Mie and Rongo.
When they come to, Mie is lying in the bottom of the shattered pool. Ongo looks down with concern and then asks where is Rongo. Mie looks down and realizes she is still holding onto Rongo's leg and drags her out into the open. But, Rongo has been defeated and as a result, now appears a small elf-like girl. She pleads with Mie to allow her to stay, as she has lost her connection to the source of her magic and cannot get home.
The final shot of the episode shows Nami, stunned and dazed, laying in the nearby bushes. This is where the episode ends.
Episode 3 - Happening Three: Mii
The final episode opens with a pseudo documentary that depicts the last major conflict between Mie and Ongo. But before the "film" can reach its conclusion, Natsumi awakens and realizes that it was actually a dream. She dresses and heads out to start her day.
Later, Natsumi, Takuma, and Nami meet at a summertime exercise camp at the local playground. The kids gripe about how lame it is to be among the few kids who have to go to this stupid exercises because their families were not going on vacations. Just then, Natsumi's dad appears and proclaims that he has a really cool place that they all can go to...his New Guinea Exhibit!! The kids groan but decide to go because there is nothing better to do.
Natsumi returns home to change and Ongo complains about her leaving without him. She tells that Ongo and Rongo to stay home because they would be bored. Then she leaves.
Rongo climbs into bed and tries to get Ongo to join her for a little "excitement" but he yells at her instead. At that moment, the flower in her hair suddenly dies. Ongo leaves and goes to catch up with Natsumi. Downstairs, Natsumi's mom is getting ready for lunch but is surprised to find that the vegetables she just bought have all wilted and died.
At the exhibit, Ongo complains that his head hurts and begins to cry in pain. He pops out of the earrings and rolls around on the floor. Takuma tries to catch him but ends up getting absorbed into the rapidly growing Ongo.
Meanwhile, Ahem, the Earth god, has become aware of the reawakening of Ongo and dashes off to Tokyo. Rongo has also seen the signs and rushes to the exhibit. Together with Natsumi and Nami, they chase after the now monstrous Ongo/Takuma.
The young women and goddess decide to transform and begin to perform their dances. Rongo merges once again with Nami and Natsumi becomes Mie. But by time they have finished their dances, Ongo has moved quite a distance. Rongo says that she can transport them closer using her magic and Mie agrees. This causes Rongo to start another prolonged "jiggling" dance.
Finally, they managed to get close to the monster. By this time, Ahem has arrived and he commands Mie to action. At first, Mie is uncertain to what to do but then she remembers her dream and begins the chant. This summons the spirits of the forests, who chant and dance with her. The end result, though, is not what she expected. Mie suddenly grows much larger and taller, matching the size of the giant Ongo.
Now, Mie really doesn't know what she should do and she is thrown off balance, literally, by the exposure of her enormous body and the reaction of the men below. Ongo, though, continues his attack and manages (how conveniently) to cause Mie's overtaxed bikini top to break. The suddenly modest Mie quickly covers her chest. But this is Ongo's downfall.
Takuma, still trapped with Ongo, won't allow Ongo to destroy "such incredible boobs" and Mie, with a little coaching from Ahem, holds the monster in a mother's loving embrace to her huge bosom. This calms the beast and causes the evil anger spirit to be expelled, where Ahem destroys it.
With the anger spirit gone, Ongo and Takuma revert to their normal forms, with one slight hitch; Ongo is now attached to the top of Takuma's head.
Meanwhile, Takuma is thanking the gods for the chance to have his face buried in Mie's chest. With the danger past, Natsumi is no longer in a mood to be so "generous" and she belts Takuma one.
The video and final episode end with Natsumi's father and his mentor/boss surveying the wreckage from the roof and pondering if there are other demons lurking out there that Mie will be required to fight and also trying to decide how to fix blame.
