Shiro, the Giant, and the Castle of Ice

Directed by Okamoto

The story takes place in Minamishimabara City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Shiro, a third-year junior high school student, was spending ordinary days with his school friends in an area known for being the birthplace of the “Shimabara Rebellion,” which shook the country during the early Edo period. In the midst of everything, a strange incident was about to take place.
