Anime at the Modern

Middle schooler Kokoro has been bullied so badly by her classmates that she cannot bring herself to return to school. But, when the mirror in her room starts glowing, she finds herself pulled into a fantasy castle with six other middle schoolers, all of them unable to face their classrooms.  Meeting every day in this other-worldly castle, these wounded loners form an unlikely band of comrades and face new mysteries: What is this fantastic castle? Who is the “wolf queen,” the masked girl who runs it? Given a one-year deadline, the children must find a key that will grant any wish they desire—but only for one of them. Based on Mizuki Tsujimura’s bestselling novel, Lonely Castle in the Mirror is an uplifting tale of the pain and hope of adolescence.
