Read manga

For Mikan, there was no better friend than Hotaru (though Hotaru sometimes seems to have other sentiments). They often played together. But Hotaru is a very special child, and she agrees to go to a school in Tokyo which the government reserved only for geniuses. This left a very lonely Mikan at home. When Hotaru fails to keep her promise and come home for holidays, her young friend is very disappointed and rather angry. But upon overhearing a conversation between Hotaru`s mother and a teacher, Mikan realizes that her friend`s reasons for leaving might not have been what they seemed. So Mikan takes it upon herself to run away and go to Hotaru`s school. There she discovers the so-called `genius academy` is actually a school for people gifted with special powers called `alices`. Her friend Hotaru is one of these, and after a chance encounter with a teacher, Mikan suddenly finds herself enrolled. Finally, the two friends are reunited, but is Mikan actually one of those so-called Alices?

She was shocked to hear that Hotaru was moving back to the city to go to an academy for young 'geniuses' like her. When she heard rumors that students were like slaves in Alice Academy (which she felt was a possibility, since they gave money to parents for sending their children to the school), Mikan left her grandfather and her home to go after Hotaru by herself. She was then accepted to Alice Academy by Narumi-sensei and could attend Alice Academy with Hotaru and many other children with extraordinary powers.

She once belonged to the Special Ability Class. Later, she gets transfered to the Dangerous Ability Class, and becomes the Elementary Principal's precious favorite. She is currently a Single Star.

Somehow, she likes to bully people she likes.

Hotaru is Mikan's best friend and the main reason why Mikan came to the academy. She and Mikan have what may seem to be a doubtful and strange relationship.
