The anime film’s official website introduces its story as:
One day, a mirror in Kokoro’s room suddenly began to glow in front of her eyes, as she had lost her place at school and was confined to her room.
She walked through the shining mirror to find a mysterious castle-like building. There were seven people in a similar situation to Kokoro.
It is said that a secret “key” is hidden in the castle, and whoever finds it will have their wish come true. Why were these seven people gathered together? and where is the key? When everything is revealed, you will be surprised and moved.
The official website has yet to produce many details such as staff, production company, and cast.
I’m intrigued to know the purpose of these seven people in the anime. What kind of secret does the castle hold?
