‘Mieruko-chan’ is a paranormal horror comedy manga written and illustrated by Tomoki Izumi. It was originally published in Japan by Kadokawa Shoten before being brought to North America in English by Yen Press. The Japanese animation studio Passione began producing an anime adaption in October 2021 directed by Yuki Ogawa and Takahiro Majima. With its popularity, Funimation announced that they had acquired the rights to produce an English dub.
“She can see them!!! We’re excited to announce that the Mieruko-chan English dub is officially on its way to Funimation, and we’ve got your details on the series cast, crew and when you can watch,” Funimation said on their website. “Episode 1 of the Mieruko-chan English dub will arrive on Funimation, which means your spooky adventure with Miko, Hana and a whole mess of spooky ghouls is about to begin (or begin again from the beginning!).”
They added, “The series English cast includes Alexis Tipton (Fire Force, Kaguya-sama: Love is War) as Miko, Sarah Wiedenheft (Plunderer, ID:INVADED) as Hana and Lindsay Sheppard (Kemono Friends, Pokémon XY) as Yulia.”
The rest of the cast includes Suzie Yeung, Elizabeth Maxwell, Michael Sorich, Erica Schroeder, Dawn M. Bennett, Steven Kelly, and Sarah Williams.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows:
“Miko Yotsuya’s eyes water as she fixates on a single spot on her phone—she ignores yet another dreadful, horrific monster that is in her face, uttering the disturbing words: “Can you see me?” Before now, Miko enjoyed her unassuming high school days, with late-night horror shows serving only as a form of entertainment. But ever since one fateful day, she is the only person aware of the invisible monsters walking freely among humans.
Courageously, Miko makes a bold decision: she will never, under any condition, acknowledge the presence of the horrid specters. However, even though she pretends they do not exist, she can still see how they disturb the people around her, especially her best friend, the energetic and lovely Hana Yurikawa. In order to protect them from the monsters’ annoyances, Miko gives it her best to continue her school life and avoid every troublesome crisis—even when they scare her to tears.”
Amber Lee Connors will serve as ADR Director with Alexis Tipton, Daman Mills, Marissa Lenti, and Mike Haimoto serving as assistant ADR directors.
