Lonely Castle in the Mirror: Storyline
When Kokoro lost her place at school and was locked in her room, one day a mirror suddenly began to shine before her eyes. After passing through it, she found a mysterious castle-like building containing seven people who were in a similar situation as Kokoro.
It is said that a secret “key” is hidden in the castle and the wish of the one who finds it shall come true.
