The plot of the anime girl who is afraid of ghosts Miko is getting more and more attractive with new twists
Kodoani.com – In the same way that opening a piece of origami paper reveals a complex and hidden web of folds, so it is interesting to watch Mieruko-chan gradually unfold the increasingly compelling drama story under the background of funny story. Both comedy and horror rely largely on the element of surprise, the anime story going against the ambition of a longer narrative. The more time we spend on something, the less likely we are to find it as scary or funny as it originally was. It’s impressive that we’re halfway through the season, but Mieruko-chan still finds ways to make kodoani more and more interesting and engaging.
The first half of the anime follows the series’ familiar paranormal pattern, with an added character Hana, not Miko, at the center. Just like the Godmother revealed a few weeks ago, while the happy Hana is unaware of the horrors lurking on every street corner, she happens to possess an unusual power that can attract and repel the scariest ghosts. Kodoani enjoys the implication that her insatiable appetite for sweets is a consequence of the energy this aura needs to sustain. Perhaps exorcists need to worry less about holy water and start using bakeries instead.
As usual, there’s not much going on in Hana’s head, which makes this part seem like it’s dragging on longer than it should. Hana is a good and bubbly counterpoint to Miko, but on her own, she doesn’t quite have what it takes to sustain the anime’s whimsical creepy feel. However, that does not mean that this part is completely boring. I love that the demon of the day uses her as a grill, frying tiny ghosts in the rich atmosphere emanating from her equally full breasts. That’s a good bit! It’s not as interesting as watching her be haunted by a haunted house when she can’t really react to any ghosts.
When Hana meets Miko again in the second half, Mieruko-chan is assumed to be surprised and horrified. With no luck with her prayer beads, Miko turns to a ruined temple as her next potential savior, but she gets to witness a miracle. Hana’s lovable goofiness is shown to great comedic effect here, with her happily toying with Ghibli movies, emotional stories while Miko stares in awe at a collision. the degree of the god emerges from the third act. We’ve seen Miko’s vision take many forms: lingering regret and affection from loved ones who have passed away, harmless mischief-makers, people who stay out of our sight, and children. Scary monsters are looking for a human to torment. However, this was her first encounter with the spark of something divine.
Miko is the most insecure we’ve ever seen her as she watches the spiritual battle unfold in flesh and blood right before her eyes. Maybe it wasn’t the scariest thing she’d ever experienced, but it was definitely the scariest. It’s a new chapter for her and for Mieruko-chan in general, and the adaptation implements one of the new chapters on the shrine’s divine and protective powers. In short, it’s really great. The anime series does a great job of adapting images of the spirits of the gods that are far from the usual anime. Yes, without a doubt, the kodoani’s perspective was colored by Mieruko-chan with an element of surprise. Anime has evolved to be more serious and dramatic. But the same goes for an anime.
The giant spirit left Miko with a cryptic parting message, and the kodoani didn’t understand what happened next either. However, it’s good that Mieruko-chan now has more ways to go to further develop the story.
