Mieruko-Chan is an ongoing horror-comedy manga series, written by Tomoki Izumi, published in Kadokawa Shoten. This manga is very popular, and according to MyAnimeList, it’s within the Top 800 manga on the website. In addition, it ranks as one of the 300 most popular manga as well. In turn, it’s a manga that’s soon going to become a full-blown franchise. If the first Mieruko-Chan anime trailer told us anything, it’s that it’ll be as horrifying as it will be funny!
Studio Passione is producing Mieruko-Chan, meaning that the anime is in good hands. Why? It’s because I’m talking about the studio behind Rail Wars, High School DxD and Higurashi. So if you’re interested in studio Passione, I’d suggest checking out all of their work on MyAnimeList.

Theme Song – Sora Amamiya
Yes, you’re reading it correctly! Sora Amamiya, the voice of Miko, is performing the theme song for Mieruko-Chan. Trust me when I say this, you’ve heard her music before. What if I told you that she’s behind Skyreach, the opening song of Akame Ga Kill? Yes, that’s her. In addition, she performed the second ending song, Tsuki Akari, as well!

Mieruko-Chan Posters, Showcasing Miko Yotsuya, Hana and Yuria!
These 3 Mieruko-Chan visuals show exactly what Miko Yotsuya’s dealing with, being surrounded by “them”. I’m obviously talking about the ghostly spirits. But I’m pointing out “them” because Mieruko-Chan’s manga is also known in English as The Girl That Sees “Them”. Thus, it’s a funny thing to inform people, as most are unaware of this English name, which didn’t last. Today, both the manga and anime go by Mieruko-Chan, and thank heavens for that!
First Mieruko-Chan Teaser Trailer
Plot:“Miko Yotsuya is an ordinary high school student who has the unfortunate ability to see horrifying ghosts and spirits that haunt her and the people around her. Despite this, Miko does her best to ignore the existence of ghosts and tries to live out a normal high school life.”
The English-Subtitled Mieruko-Chan Trailer
The Mieruko-Chan manga is terrifyingly funny, and horrifically scary! While it’s a horror-comedy, through and through, it’s an emotional rollercoaster for a manga series. Thus, it’s just fun and games for Miko Yotsuya, who’s genuinelly suffering from seeing ghosts. So when she’s struggling to live her life normally, you’ll find yourself feeling all types of emotions, including a sense of somber sadness. However, don’t be frightened by my own personal description! It’s an entertaining storyline, with funny moments and wholesome scenes, covered in ghostly spirits!
