Tomoki Izumi's supernatural horror manga series "Mieruko-chan" has been announced by Kadokawa on Thursday to receive a TV anime series adaptation of the same title. The announcement was made by its official website and Twitter which opened today. A promotional video and key visual were revealed along with the announcement of the staff and cast for the series. The anime series is scheduled to begin broadcasting this year.

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 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...
