Mirrorman REFLEX (ミラーマンREFLEX, Mirāman Rifurekkusu) is a three episode, direct-to-DVD series that was initially released as a film in 2006. It features no characters and little connections to the original Mirrorman.[1] REFLEX has a darker tone on par with the first half of the original television series.

In the story the concept of the mirror world and its inhabitants is changed, drawing more on ancient Japanese beliefs. Behind all mirrors lies the 'Hidden World' where within lay monstrous spirits who sought to take over the souls and bodies of people of this the 'manifest world'. Unlike most giant heroes or the original Mirrorman, REFLEX's main hero, Akira Kageyama, was a gruff middle-aged man who only acted when the Mirror Demons, the Jashin (Evil Warriors) escape to the manifest world.

Synopsis[]

In this updated 2006 version the story revolves around a troubled war veteran Akira, his niece, Momoso, a strange girl who possesses incredible powers and a beautiful scientist with a unforgettable trauma in her past. While the original Mirrorman was a Sci-Fi toku, REFLEX revolved around the supernatural delving into ancient Japanese beliefs to create the universe in which the story revolves. Instead of invaders the enemies the hero faces are demons of the Hidden World, the spiritual realm that resides behind every mirror to this the Material World. They are summoned by a rich occultist bent on gaining power.
