The series focuses on a rather self-centered, cocky adolescent American boy named Mikey who wins a starring role in a popular Japanese television series LilyMu by scratching off a lottery card. The show-within-a-show centers on a team of crime-fighters with personalities based around typical anime characters. Mikey becomes acquainted with his co-stars, including Gonard, a sweet gluttonous dimwitted parody of Goku who plays the primary antagonist of the LilyMu series; Lily, the spoiled, heartless portrayer of the otherwise ingenuous and sweet damsel-in-distress of LilyMu who contempts Mikey for having overtaken her limelight; Mitsuki, a sensitive actress infatuated with Mikey who plays a much tougher character in the series than in reality; and Guano, a small, fuzzy, purple creature parodying Pikachu with many insecurities, responsibilities, strange habits and tendencies. The program in which the actors are featured is run by a tyrannical, strict and loud boss Ozu who is not only noted for his sour demeanor and constant infuriation with Mikey, but also his mentoring guidance. Ozu is aided by Yes-Man, his dedicated and trustworthy assistant who loyally upholds him and agrees with his every decision. The series centers on the actors' daily lives, aside from filming the television program and the predicaments in which they may entangle themselves at the hands of their own cockiness, incompetence, or celebrity status, and episodes usually feature sub-plots following the lives of whichever characters are not being primarily featured in that particular episode. The series relies heavily on gags and anime parodies for comedy.
