- Season 1
The main protagonist is a love fairy named Mirumo (Mirmo in the English version). Kaede Minami (Katie Minami in the English version), is a cheerful and energetic eighth grader who is shy around her male classmates, making it difficult for her to date. One day, on her way home from school, she walks into a mysterious shop and buys a blue cocoa mug. When she arrives at home, she peeks into the bottom of the mug and discovers an engraved note which says, "If you read this message aloud while pouring hot cocoa into the mug, a love fairy ("muglox") will appear and grant your every wish." The skeptical but curious Kaede follows the directions and announces her wish to date Setsu Yuuki (Dylan Yuki in the English version), her crush. Mirumo arrives. At first she was afraid of him but later understood that he was a muglox. Kaede soon finds out that Mirumo prefers eating chocolate and creating mischief over helping Kaede.
It turns out Mirumo is prince of the muglox world. Horrified at the prospect of having to marry Rirumu (Rima in the English version), his princess bride-to-be, Mirumo escaped the muglox world. Hot on his heels, however, are Riruma, Yashichi (Yatch in the English version) the bounty hunter, Murumo (Mirumo's brother), and many other muglox as well. The villains of the first season are the Warumo gang, a gang of criminals who plan to overthrow the Marumo kingdom. And though they are villains, they actually aren't that evil, they just pull childish pranks and faint after hearing a evil plan. But sometimes they come up with good plans like when they made the Warumo orb and used it to control Mirmo's friends' minds until Katie gets the mic and gives Mirmo the power to save them.
- Season 2
In this season a new transfer student comes to the same school as Katie her name is Saori. The villain Darkman, a being created by the darkness in human hearts, tries to resurrect himself. He influences the minds of Akumi and the Warumo gang. Sesion magic is introduced for two person magic, with each person combo producing different magic. Darkman also controls Saori and uses her flute to control peoples' emotions. He is then defeated by Golden Mirmo, the outcome of three person sesion magic. But then with the help of Nezumi/Rato, he is resurrected until the Muglox's four person sesion magic gives Saori the power to defeat Darkman. But the two worlds are separated until reunited by the Muglox and their partners' friendship. Saori goes to Germany to study music with Akumi as her new partner.
- Season 3
In this season a robot octupus taco convinces the gang to look for the legendary seven crystals which are drawn out by different emotions. After all are collected, the gang faces seven trials which Mirmo must pass for the crystals unite and form a pendant, which Tako steals to save his girlfriend and his land. In the end, they succeed and Tako becomes king of crystal land.
- Season 4
The last season in which two new characters are introduced: Koichi and Haruka. Koichi has a crush on Katie and Haruka is Dylan's childhood friend who wants to be a cartoonist. Her partner Panta, a ghost Muglox. Thanks to Azumi, Katie and Koichi kissed. Dylan starts to fall in love with Katie, but Koichi realizes that he is not right for Katie and gives up on her. However, after Haruka tells Dylan she loves him, he chose her over Katie until Haruka realizes Dylan's true love is Katie gives up on him. Dylan tells Katie he loves her and they become a couple; meaning Katie's wish is fulfilled and Mirmo has to leave in one hour or something terrible will happen, which the Warumo gang make so. Mirmo loses all memories of Katie and turns into a rabbit until Katie brings his memories back and he turns back to normal. Many interesting things happen in this season.
The main characters of Mirmo! are mugloxes, or love fairies and their four human teenagers. The muglox Mirmo has been assigned the task of granting Katie Minami's wishes, though he spends most of his time eating chocolate and running away from Rima, a female muglox assigned to Dylan Yuki, the boy Katie is infatuated with. Yatch, Mirmo's muglox archrival, is assigned to by Azumi Hidaka, a girl who also loves Dylan and is jealous of Katie. Mirmo's brother, Murumo, is assigned to Kyle Matsutake, a boy who falls in love with Katie. The muglox fairies use musical instruments as their magical tools. Later on in the show two new characters, Koichi Sumita and Haruka Morishita, enter the race of love for Dylan and Katie's hearts. Then they get their very own muglox partners as well - Papii and Panta, respectively.
