Shōkōjo Seira (小公女セイラ?) is a 2009 Japanese drama television series based on the children's novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Mirai Shida stars as Seira, the daughter of a rich boss of a mining company. Due to her father's sudden death in a mining accident, Seira has overcomes many ordeals at the Millenius Seminary boarding school because she is unable to pay her school fees.

Plot[edit]

Seira was raised in India, but she is sent back to Japan to continue her education at an affluent boarding high school her mother went to. Although she has lived in luxury, the well-bred Seira is kind and generous, earning her many friends at the school. One person who dislikes Seira is the school's director, though she treats Seira well due to the father's fortune. Then, during Seira's 16th birthday party, the director informs her that her father has died, leaving her penniless. As a result, she is forced to work as a servant in order to pay off her school bills.

It was found out in the latter stages that the director despised Seira's mother, thus expressing her revenge. In the end it was found out that his father's assets were unfrozen, and she became very rich once again. Since Millenius school was on the verge of bankruptcy, Seira saved it by becoming the sole proprietor, but as a condition she would be readmitted back to school. Thus the competition between Kuroda Seira, Takeda Maria and Mizushima Kaori to become the school captain emerged for good
