From June 2019 to February 2022, a manga adaptation drawn by Tomo Taketomi was published in Shueisha’s seinen manga magazine Ultra Jump, with the chapters collected into four tankōbon volumes as of September 2021. On Thursday, Shochiku announced that Mizuki Tsujimura’s novel Lonely Castle in the Mirror – Kagami no Kojou will be adapted into an anime film that will premiere in Japan in ‘Winter 2022′.

The novel was published in English by the American publishing house Doubleday in April 2021 under the title Lonely Castle in the Mirror. A hardcover edition will be released on July 5 by New York-based Erewhon Books.

Seven teenagers in a quiet Tokyo suburb avoid coming to school by hiding in their gloomy bedrooms, unable to face their families and friends until the moment they see their bedroom mirrors are sparkling. They are dragged from their lonely existence into a magical palace right out of a Grimm’s fairy tale with a single touch. This oddly lacking food and running water place is home to a petulant girl in a mask known as Wolf Queen and acts as their playground and refuge during school hours. They’re told there’s a key concealed within the walls that will grant one wish, along with instructions on how to find it.

They must find the key by the end of the school year, and they must leave the premises by 5 p.m. every day, or they will die. As time goes on, it becomes clear that only those who are comfortable sharing their narratives will be saved. As a result, they begin to piece together one other’s tales. Whether a boy is showered with far more gadgets than love, how another is rejected inexplicably, and how a girl lives in constant fear of her predatory stepfather. A poignant narrative of seven individuals stuck in a cycle of misconception and misery who are finally liberated by the power of friendship, compassion, and suffering unfolds as they strive to follow the rules of the game.
