A Little Room for Hope


Total SNS viewers exceed 280 million; live-action version finally released‼

In the sad aftermath of an 8th-grade girl’s disappearance, the police delve into the possibility of a kidnapping, casting a shadow over the community. On the other side of the coin, in the quiet confines of an apartment, a 14-year-old girl and a man with silver hair wearing a mask watch the news unfold.

Visible bruises adorn the girl’s fragile frame, and a bandage conceals the wounds on her head. Unveiling a chilling twist, the man with the mask is the kidnapper; beyond the surface, their connection transcends the expected captor-victim dynamic.  As the television screen projects the tearful pleas of the girl’s mother, the captive teenager gazes contemptuously, a subtle smirk playing on her lips. In this macabre narrative, she proposes a chilling game to her masked captor,

“Let’s play an escaping game from the police and the toxic parents. If we can get away with it, let’s get married then, but if not, we are going to commit a double suicide.”



Anna Yamada, Shuhei Uesugi
