Mieruko-Chan: First impressions

Fall 2021 Anime I'm looking forward to – KS Blogs

Synopsis: She can see dead people…she just chooses to ignore them. That’s Miko’s plan, anyway, but it doesn’t seem to be working for her in this love letter to the horror genre that will send shivers down your spine—and occasionally tickle your funny bone.

Join her day-to-day life as she keeps up her best poker face despite the supernatural goings-on.

What is better than starting Spooktober with a Horror anime? Mieruko-chan has been on everyone’s planning list for this fall with it’s unique concept involving horror and comedy and so far I love it. I actually liked the first episode more than I expected to, I can’t wait for episode 2. Also thanks to Muse Asia for bringing this anime to YouTube because this anime is not available in my country on any another site(Why!!!!!!!!).

The story is about Miko who suddenly start seeing dead people, does she get scared, does she defend herself or attack it, none of these, she ignores it. No matter how much bad the situation is, she manages to keep a poker face until the dead people disappear. I really like this approach to horror anime, it’s scary as to what might happen but also cannot help but crack up to Miro’s expressions.

The most unexpected thing was the fan service. The last thing I expected in a horror anime was fan service, so far it has not really affected the anime so I’ll let it pass. The anime itself is very entertaining, I’m curious for the future episodes.

Have you watched Mieruko-chan? If so leave a comment down below what you’re first impressions are.

Thank you for reading.


  1. My problem with Mieruko-chan is that I do not find it funny. Supposedly this show is meant to have funny moments, thus its genre is comedy. I can’t find anything to laugh at. Scarry moments are too dark, there is too much fan service and ecchi moments, and generally speaking, the show is a big letdown for me. I will give it a shot, obviously, but I do not expect anything spectacular.

    • I agree with the fanservice part, it really puts down the whole horror vibe but in terms of comedy I think it did pretty well to establish itself in the first episode. I think the first episode was just an insight to all the comedy that’s gonna take place in the upcoming episodes. Even I have my doubts as to how this show will turn out but we have to just wait and watch.

  2. Just watched the first episode yesterday, and I thought it was pretty good. I’m not too sure if I would call it a comedy, but I did like the horror parts. I’m interested to see how it develops.
