A teaser visual for the anime adaptation of Mieruko-chan was released on 12th August 2021 and fans are dying to know what it looks like as well as wanting to know when the series will premiere.

Mieruko-chan, otherwise known as The Girl Who Can See Them is a manga series written by Tomoki Izumi. The series was released in 2018 and has been going strong since.

In March 2021, news broke that the popular manga series would be getting an anime adaptation. The series premise will follow Miko Yotsuya, a high school student who one day begins to see ghosts and spirits. To live out a normal life she tries to ignore their existence.

Mieruko-Chan: New key visual

A new key visual for the anime was released on 12th August 2021 showing the main characters that would be featured in the anime, alongside the protagonist, Miko Yotsuya, who has long black hair.

The visual shows Miko’s best friend Hana Yurikawa to the left of her and Yulia Nikaidō, a classmate of the other two. Yulia is shown to know about Miko’s ability in the trailer so their dynamic together is not yet known but it appears that she wants Miko to join her in exorcising the spirits. The key visual can be seen below:

Cast and crew for the upcoming anime

Along with the teaser visual, the names of cast members was also released and are as follows:

  • Sora Amamiya as Miko Yotsuya.
  • Kaede Hondo as Hana Yurikawa, Miko’s best friend.
  • Ayane Sakura as Yulia Nikaidō, Miko and Hana’s classmate.

As these are the three main characters, they are the only cast to have been named at the time of writing. However, we do know that Yuki Ogawa will be directing the anime while Kenta Ihara supervises and writes the scripts.

Chief animation director and character designer will be Chikashi Kadekaru, with Makoto Uno designing monsters. Kana Utatane has also been named as the composer for the anime.

When and where will the anime release?

The series is currently scheduled to premiere on Japanese broadcasting channels Tokyo MX, BS NTV, AT-X and other channels in October 2021. An exact release date has not yet been released but we expect an announcement to be made in the coming weeks.

Anime News Network says “Kadokawa’s YouTube channel will host a special with the cast on July 28.”. Both Funimation and Crunchyroll have announced the anime adaptation, though neither has said they will be streaming it for international fans, though we expect one of the streaming giants will be picking up the series.

Should the series release on Crunchyroll it will cost viewers £6.50 a month for a subscription and access to the anime and should it be on Funimation, a subscription will cost £4.99GBP a month.

Yen Press publishes the manga in English. It can be purchased on sites such as Amazon Prime for $6-13 or Barnes and Noble for $6.99-13.
