Be hurry... I'm scared... Come here... - Mirai's ghost
Mirai Isobe (磯部未来, Isobe Mirai) is a character from Ju-on: White Ghost, portrayed by Chinami Iwamoto.
Mirai is Miho's and Kentaro's grandaughter, Atsushi's niece, Junko's daughter , and Haru's great granddaughter. She is the youngest member of her family. Her family moved to a Matsuoka house, where Atsushi found a mirror in an empty room. Spirit possessed him from the mirror and changed him. Atsushi started to abuse Mirai. Mirai seeked help from her sensitive friend Akane, who felt the spirits in the house and was kicked out by Atsushi. From her bedroom's window, Mirai screamed and called for Akane, who only ran away fearful. Two days before Christmas, Atsushi killed his whole family, leaving Mirai for last. Mirai was decapitated by Atsushi, who took her head to a forest and left the body on the bed. In the forest, Atsushi set a casette to record and climbed to hang himself. The tape recorded Mirai's words from the afterlife, calling for him, as her ghostly head stared at him. As Atsushi had gone to the forest by taxi, his driver Hajime, the father of Akane, was warned that he had transported a "family killer" and was suddenly surprised by a vision of Atsushi in the back seat. As he ran to check, Mirai's ghostly hands ripped his head off. Akane learned of Mirai's death, and had grown guilty for not helping her. She was often visited by her. While Akane was playing Kokkuri with Mayumi and Yuka, Mirai appeared to her, and Akane quickly left the class, leaving her friends puzzled. When Akane came home, Mirai appeared, and returned her bear key-chain.
