The 12 episodes of mieruko chan ended leaving many things for fans
Kodoani.com – The last time kodoani watched an anime starring an adorable girl with the power to see ghosts was Re-Kan!, it was awesome. This time we have a place where most ghosts are less friendly and girls usually bless the more cultured ones. This is Mieruko-chan.
Genre: Comedy, Horror, Supernatural
Theme: The other world
Plot Summary: Miko Yotsuya is an ordinary high school student with the unfortunate ability to see horrifying ghosts and spirits that haunt her and those around her. Even so, Miko tries her best to ignore the existence of ghosts and tries to live a normal high school life.
The theme of the anime is “expect the unexpected” with some interesting backstory at the end of many segments and the story unfolds. Even if viewers managed to find a turning point, the anime did a good job of leaving a strong impression upon its reveal. That’s the impression kodoani got from watching the anime adaptation of this story. There is another important topic but kodoani leaves that for the viewer to explore. Miko is a great protagonist who goes to great lengths to ignore the usually scary ghosts that become more and more terrifying over time with a few exceptions. Of course, this will get harder over time because of the ghosts getting more and more spooky and how hard it is for her to hide her terror. This is not only to avoid the consequences of creepy ghosts noticing she sees them, but also to protect the people she cares for, especially her best friend Hana.
Aside from her main goal of living the rest of her life as sane as possible and keeping her loved ones safe, there are mysteries surrounding the ghosts, which may be the cause. Their deaths, connections with the living, or other conundrums that Miko encounters more often as the story progresses make her question the morality of ghosts not being able or willing to be quiet. Even the episode previews with their simple titles have their own secrets. An anime so well structured and paced that although it doesn’t really answer the main question of how or why Miko can see ghosts, everything else is very well done and presented.
Speaking of presentation, let’s move on to presentation. Kodoani prefers anime to take a “fear of the unknown” approach to horror instead of “jump scare”. It’s not about seeing scary ghosts, but not understanding them or being able to do anything about them. Viewers associate Miko with confusion and helplessness for most of the anime’s length. The effectiveness of the scare is up to the viewer.
Aside from the well-executed scares and mostly creepy spooky designs, the cultists are endowed with adorable images of our heroines that leave us spellbound. their splendor from a very early age. As the anime goes, they decrease the frequency of the sanctity but it doesn’t go away completely, so don’t worry. The soundtrack is somewhat eerie and bone-chilling as it should be for a horror comedy, as is the OP and ED.
Before getting to the main event, let’s take a look at the supporting characters. The most notable ones are Miko’s mother and younger brother. Kodoani mentioned the highlight of his mother while the younger brother may appear annoyed with his older sister but actually cares a lot for her. A highlight is the episode where the guy suspects his sister is related to some emotional topics. Other characters are connected to ghosts or do their jobs well. Remember the running thread mentioned above with some of them. Then there is this mysterious girl right here. For most of the first half of the anime, her identity and motives remained a mystery. With other supporting characters like Miko’s deceased father, we are really surprised or like a guy with a thug face but an honest heart that lights up our hearts when watching mieruko chan. .
Finally, we have Miko and her soulless girlfriend Hana full of vitality. I’ve already talked about Miko so let’s take a look at Hana and their relationship. Hana is a super friendly cute girl who has a secret of her own and a delightfully ironic trait. Viewers will discover it as she explores on her own. As mentioned, she loves to eat with her favorite dish peach butt cakes. As for her relationship with Miko, she treasures their relationship. Be with her whenever possible, date as much as you can, and most importantly, be open to having a romantic relationship. Hopefully one day Miko will embrace her fate and consider her more than just a loved one in her life.
Overall Mieruko-chan is a fun and spooky time. Most of the scare scenes are very well done, the presentation is creepy and sexy, the narrative is done very well even the stories as well as the unexpected scenes bring a feeling of excitement to the audience. warm. The supporting characters do a good job and our main duo (later trilogy) of Miko and Hana are fantastic, especially given the potential for something bigger between them. While the main question is not answered, everything else is well done.
