Lonely Castle in the Mirror – Teaser Trailer

Hara is known as the “master of crying scenes” for directing several anime series and films, including films from Doraemon and Pastel Shin-chan franchises. He directed other anime series and films including Esper Mami (1987-1989), Colorful (2010), Miss Hokusai (2015) and Birthday Wonderland (2019). He also directed a Japanese action film titled Hajimari no Michi (2013), a biopic about director Keisuke Kinoshita.

The film is based on the 2017 Japanese novel by Mizuki Tsujimura. It was first published by Poplar in May 2017. The novel received a manga adaptation illustrated by Tomo Taketomi, which was then serialized under Shueisha’s Ultra Jump from June 2019 to February 2022.

Doubleday published the novel in English for North America, while Penguin books published it in UK English:
In a quiet neighborhood of Tokyo, seven teenagers wake up to find their bedroom mirrors glowing. With one touch, they are drawn from their lonely lives into a beautiful castle filled with winding staircases, watchful portraits and twinkling chandeliers. In this new sanctuary, they encounter a set of clues leading to a hidden room where one of them will be granted a wish. But there’s a catch: if they don’t leave by five o’clock, they’ll die. Over time, a devastating truth emerges: those who dare to share their stories will be punished.
