The official Twitter for the TV anime adaptation of Tomoki Izumi's supernatural horror manga series "Mieruko-chan" has revealed that the previously-announced TV anime series is scheduled to begin broadcasting this coming October. A promotional video along with its second teaser visual was also unveiled.

The series is animated by Passione with Yuki Ogawa serving as the series director. Kenta Inohora is in charge of the scripts, and Mutsumi Kadekaru is designing the characters and also serves the animation director.

The cast includes:

  • Sora Amamiya as Miko Yotsuya

  • Kaede Hondo as Hana Yurikawa

  • Ayane Sakura as Yuria Niguredo

The series is based on the Japanese manga series written by Keisuke Makino and illustrated by Tomoki Izumi which was first launched as a web manga on September 2018. The manga was serialized under Kadokawa's ComicWalker web manga portal in November of the same year. As of March 2020, the novel has been collected into 4 volumes with the fifth volume to be released on March 22.


English publisher Yen Press, describes the story as:

A normal girl was living a normal life-until she wasn't.

One day, she could see...everything. What's a girl to do when hideous monsters appear no matter which way she turns?

And on top of that, nobody else can see them!

Obviously, there's only one thing that makes sense-ignore them.

Kinda hard to put theory into practice, though, when

the ghosts know she's watching...
