Natsumi Kawashima, an energetic fifth-grader, is obsessed with her fantasy of being the ideal, sexy woman. Rejected at every advance by the cute guys that she fawns over, she finally gets a break when she picks up a package of mysterious pink nuts that are adults only.

I feel as if I needed to rewrite my review on this, so I'm starting over again. I'm not sure why.

Instant Teen: Just Add Nuts! is a sweet story about a young fifth grader named Natsumi Kawashima who wants to become a beautiful young woman, but unfortunately for her, she still looks (and acts) like a kid. On chance she finds these nuts, accidentally mixed in with nuts that were only supposed to be for adults, and they change her into a very well developed woman!

I have no business reading this, and if you are over thirteen or even just have a little sense of critical analysis neither does you. But since we are here, how about I tell you why.

Tokyopop is was a weird company with a habit of releasing everything they could get their filthy paws on. Then after years on decline they went under because of bad management. They had some good stuff and some that was frankly horribly bland and generic crap. Otona ni Nuts(Instant Teen) is one of the latter ones.

Same mangaka.
It is Rakuen Route in reverse!!

In rakuen route Hana is a 16 year old in the body of a ten year old. She turns into her real age when the two boys touch their "marks", which are actually Hana's wings, to each other.

In Otona ni Nuts, Natsumi is a fifth-grader that wants to be older and she gets her wish when she eats the mysterious nuts. But she is still a child at heart and must deal with that and with her love for her childhood friend.
