Former Representative of the Mystery
Current Representative of the Mystery
The Hell of Mirrors is the third of the Seven Mysteries. It was the fifth School Mystery to be introduced in the series. It first appeared in Volume 6, after Nene was pulled into its boundary by the disembodied hands as per Mitsuba's order.
The third Mystery's representative has the ability to reflect the hearts of those who wandered inside it. Those who are pure of heart will be able to escape without trouble, otherwise, the mirror will change its appearance to reflect one's deepest fear, beckoning its victim to stay forever. It tortured Nene by telling her that she has radish legs. For those without memories, the mirror appears blank.
The School Mystery desires to trade places with the living, allowing for the mannequin who manages to capture the human's soul to replace them.
As he and his minions attacked Nene and Mitsuba in order to kill them and take their identities, Tsukasa appeared and saved them. Tsukasa then killed Number 3 and forced Mitsuba to eat his heart, in order for him to take the place as the new representative of the 3rd School Mystery.
The aspect the Third School Mystery oversees in Kamome Academy is currently unknown.
The Hell of Mirrors' boundary is an expansive, multileveled space, with many mirrors decorating the walls. It is said that the boundary changes its nature according to the people who enter it, when the person looks into the mirrors, it will reflect the person's fear. Thus Hanako and Kou couldn't carelessly enter, in case it becomes more dangerous when they do.
The Yorishiro of Mystery No.3 is an unknown object suspended high above on the boundary's ceiling.
Due to memory loss, the Yorishiro have not changed for the new representative of the third mystery.
