Synopsis of Mieruko-chan
Miko is a typical high school student whose life is turned upside down when she suddenly begins to see gruesome and horrible monsters. Despite being completely terrified, Miko goes about her daily life, pretending not to notice the horrors that surround her. She must endure fear to keep herself and her friend Hana out of harm’s way, even if it means coming face to face with the worst. Mixing comedy and horror, Mieruko-chan tells the story of a girl who tries to deal with the paranormal by acting indifferent towards it.
