Adaptation based on children's adventure novel series hits theaters in Japan on June 17, 2022
An exciting and action-packed new trailer has been published for Kaitou Queen wa Circus ga Osuki ("The Phantom Thief Queen Loves the Circus", also known as Mirage QUEEN aime cirque), an upcoming theatrical anime film series based on the series of adventure novels written by Kaoru Hayamine and illustrated by K2 Shoukai about an enigmatic phantom thief who travels the world and absconds with any treasures that strike their fancy.
The trailer (below) features the official theme song for the film, entitled "Gyakuten no Regina" ("The Queen of Reversals"), which is performed by Little Black Dress.
The story of Kaitou Queen wa Circus Osuki follows a mysterious phantom thief of unknown age, gender, and nationality who travels the world on the airship "Troubadour" along with their partners, Joker and RD, and steals anything that strikes their fancy. This time, the Mirage Queen targets the "Linden's Rose", a legendary gemstone, only to discover that it has already been stolen by a mysterious circus troupe known as the Seven Ring Circus. Nothing is impossible for the Phantom Queen, so they challenge the brilliant circus performers (including illusionists, acrobats, and hypnotists) in order to retrieve the gem.
Kaitou Queen wa Circus Osuki is directed by Saori Den and features animation production by East Fish Studio. After preliminary screenings at Shinjuku Wald 9 in Tokyo on May 25th and at Umeda Burg 8 in Osaka on June 1st, the film is scheduled to hit theaters in Japan on June 17, 2022.
