New details for the upcoming horror-comedy anime, Mieruko-Chan, have been released.
Based off of the manga of the same name, Mieruko-Chan’s anime adaptation revolves around schoolgirl Miko, who gets up one morning to learn that she’s able to see incredibly creepy ghosts. The spirits follow her everywhere, leading her to scary, uncomfortable, yet humorous situations as she ignores them with all of her might. Despite making such a difficult move, it does keep her friends safe from potential paranormal catastrophe.
On the show’s official Twitter account, a pair of key visuals has been shared, showing the eeriness that poor Miko has to put up with on a daily basis.
In addition to the (para)normal images as seen above, a new trailer was also released today. You can watch it below:
Studio Passione will be animating the show. Mieruko-Chan’s staff consists of well seasoned veterans such as director Yuki Ogawa, series composition and scriptwriter Kenta Ihara (Shachibato! President, It’s Time for Battle!), character designer and animation director Chikashi Kadekaru (Scared Rider Xechs), ghost designer Unomakoto (character designer for Ishuzoku Reviewers), KUSANAGI’s Ayano Okamoto as art director, and color designer Ritsuko Utagawa. The creepy comedy airs in Japan October 2021. Details regarding the English dub and US air date have not been released at this time.
