Inspired by Chigusa Tsukikage, a star who retires due to injury, Maya Kitajima resolves to become an actress and joins her idol's theater troupe. Pushed to the limit by Chigusa, who turns out to be a tough taskmistress, Maya trains to perform the infamous Red Angel role solo, all the while repudiating the adoring advances of boy-next-door Masami Hayami and competing with her fierce rival from the Theater Undine, Ayumi Himekawa. Based on the ongoing 1976 Hana to Yume manga by Suzue Miuchi, MoG is Sugii's tribute to Flashdance, but it slips easily into the clichés of sports anime such as Aim for the Ace, even with the sport removed. The titular "mask of glass" is the invisible dramatic energy an actress wears in front of her audience. A three-episode video series GM: The Girl of a Thousand Masks (Glass no Kamen: Sen no Kamen wo Motsu Shojo) was released in 1998, and the television series was remade in 2005 under the original title. There have also been numerous theatrical productions, and a two-season live-action TV adaptation beginning in 1997 (*DE).
