The first season of Mieruko-chan has ended — perhaps leaving fans wanting for more, considering there were just 12 episodes released. Zen is finally free from being haunted by his mom and many other dark spirits. However, there are still many unanswered questions left for Miko. Here's everything that happened in Episode 12 of Mieruko-chan.
Mieruko-chan Ending Explained
The two shrine spirits protect Miko from the large ghost who ended up being Zen's mom. This means that Miko has used up the "three times" that the spirits were referring to. Miko starts crying out of relief, considering she survived the ordeal. However, Zen is confused with what's happening and thinks that Miko's just a weird kid. Suddenly, Hana and Yulia enter Zen's room. It turns out that Hana also wanted to check up on her teacher. Hana begins lightly scolding Zen, thinking that Miko might be traumatized from the car accident, which is why she's crying. Zen apologizes to his students for making them worry. The spirits that were haunting Zen begin turning into light and disappearing. Zen is finally free from being haunted by his mother and numerous dark ghosts. In the end, Miko lets Zen adopt the cat that he saved from getting hit.
Miko and Hana are hanging out with plans of watching a movie sequel. Meanwhile, Yulia is at home watching the first movie. The Godmother suddenly crosses her mind. The Godmother receives a letter from an unknown sender, and inside is the selfie of Miko and Hana from the shrine. However, their faces are covered — but the Godmother knows it's Miko and Hana, based on their aura alone.
In school, Miko suddenly remembers the shrine spirits and asks Hana what a good shrine offering would be. Miko decides to return to the shrine to give an offering as a way of saying thanks to the spirits. After offering dango, the spirits don't seem content. Miko offers more dango and even money, but it looks ineffective. Plus, dark ghosts begin appearing around the shrine. The shrine spirits move closer to Miko, and she starts freaking out. Just when she thought she was about to be attacked, she woke up. It turns out that it was just a dream. On the other hand, Zen finally catches the guy who's been abusing the cats in the area. However, the police file a report on the mysterious man as a missing person.
Life goes on, and Miko still isn't sure how she suddenly gained the ability to see the supernatural or why this happened to her. The shrine spirits remain a mystery as well. Although, Miko somehow has an easier time now ignoring most of these grotesque ghosts. But, one thing is for sure: she has more courage to face them head-on in the future.
