What would you do if you had the ability to see ghosts? It must be hard living with supernatural abilities because it sure is difficult for high school student Miko Yotsuya. What's even worse is that these extraordinary powers of hers just suddenly activated out of nowhere, causing her to freak out. If you have a knack for watching horror anime, then it might be worth checking out Mieruko-chan.
Mieruko-chan follows the life of Miko Yotsuya, who suddenly gained the ability to see the supernatural. Some of these creatures tend to get quite gruesome, which elicits high levels of fear within Miko. However, she has to put on a brave face and pretend that she doesn't see any of these creatures — just so that they won't bother her or her friends. Unfortunately, this gets Miko in multiple situations where her courage and fearlessness are constantly being tested.
