The concept behind it Mieruko-chan Anime and manga are really fun! There’s a girl who can see ghosts and otherworldly beings! However, these ghosts are usually quite dangerous! It’s best to pretend they don’t exist so they don’t take hold and cause more trouble. This means that we’re essentially watching a slice-of-life horror series about a girl desperately trying to pretend these creatures don’t exist and going about her life while trying to get attention. It can be quite interesting! With Yen Press’ Official comic anthology by Mieruko-chan, We see a number of other mangaka tackle the story alongside Tomoki Izumi, and it works incredibly well. The only thing is that people who don’t know Miko might not enjoy it as much.
There are 13 stories Official comic anthology by Mieruko-chan, which seems appropriate given the horror story surrounding this number. Yousuke Katayama, who did it Nioh: Konjiki no Samurai, Muhyo and Roji Author Yoshiyuki Nishi and Sayman Dowman all have one-shots throughout. All are short stories that are largely independent of actual events or plot lines in the original story. In most of them Miko plays the main role, in films such as “Yuria’s Sunset Patrol” and “Hat! Cap! Hat!” Instead, focus on Yuria and Rom. Given the reliance on knowledge of who everyone is, from Miko and her abilities to Hana and her overwhelming life force, there are some subtleties that every mangaka incorporates to ensure that the reader knows how well they understand the source material.
What surprised me is the overall quality of all the pieces. I can’t think of a single one of these stories that I didn’t like. They all capture the general atmosphere of the series well. I particularly liked “One Who Knows the Girl Who Sees” by Nakan Yabeya because it reminded me of the situation with Miko’s father. Shikiji Sorakura’s Little Old Man’s Day is fun because of the situation and the dynamic between Miko and Yuria and Miko and Hana. I’m also a big fan of all of the Yuria stories here, as they capture well her misconceptions about Miko and her own passion for dealing with the supernatural.
It’s also really fun to see how different mangaka attack different types of ghosts. Due to the variety of artists, each of whom has their own direction, we experience a variety of new encounters for Miko and the other characters. Michiru Noroi’s Fright of the Fitting Room features an incredible spirit and design that is so well executed. I think it’s the best spirit in the band and I really liked the execution.
In short, someone who already knows Miko and her predicament from the manga or anime will probably have a lot of fun Official comic anthology by Mieruko-chan. Especially if they are so familiar with it that they also know supporting actors like Yuria and Rom. Even if the show isn’t widely known to you, it can still be fun. A lot of the one-shots don’t really require much context or knowledge other than “This girl can see ghosts and ghosts but acts like they don’t.” However, it only really works if you’re already a fan.
