We may not be able to see monsters, but we can see a monstrous amount of new details about the upcoming horror-comedy anime Mieruko-chan, including a new trailer, visuals, the main cast, and a perfectly spooky October premiere!
The newly announced main cast brings in Sora Amamiya (Rent-a-Girlfriend) as the troubled Miko Yotsuya, Kaede Hondo (BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.) as best friend Hana Yurikawa, and Ayane Sakura (The Day I Became a God) as the ambitious Yuria Niguredo.
Sora Amamiya will also be performing the opening theme, titled “Mienai kara ne!?” (“I can’t see you, okay!?”).
The official Mieruko-chan Twitter account released another pair of “matching” visuals, depicting Miko’s ghostly plight.
Tomoki Izumi’s horror comedy manga Mieruko-chan, currently published by Yen Press, follows a student named Miko, who wakes up one day to find that she’s suddenly able to see grotesque beings.
These supernatural creatures stalk Miko everywhere she goes, which leads to some terrifying and hilarious situations as she does her best to pretend she can’t see them. Ignoring them proves difficult, of course, as does keeping her friends out of harm’s way.
