As the story goes: An old bottle has
found it's way to a modern family. A Genie and his daughter, Akubi reside
inside the bottle. It is owned by a child named Kan. What he is unaware
of when he finds the bottle is that whenever anyone sneezes, the Genie
is brought out and must grant the wishes of whoever sneezed. Whenever anyone
yawns, his daughter must do likewise. Getting these wishes granted may
not be a good thing though, the Genie is extremely clumsy and usually bungles
whatever wish he grants. Akubi is mischievous and likes to twist the words
of anyone's wishes so that something bad usually comes of it. All of this
results in hilarious adventures for the poor family who owns the bottle!
