Ogawa Yuuki (Director)
I’m not good with horror, so I can understand Miko’s feeling throughout the story while I’m reading the original work. I will try my best to deliver Miko’s feeling to everyone.
Ihara Kenta (Series Composition/ Script Writer)
I love horror since long times ago, and my debut work is also a horror, so when I received the offer for “Mieruko-chan”, I was trembling… with joy. I’m excited to see the movement as well as sound of the strange beings in the original work. Please enjoy the “World of Mieru” even if you are bad with horror.
Kadekaru Chikashi (Character Designer/ General Art Director)
“Mieruko-chan” is an interesting work that managed to fuse horror and comedy together, and I am glad to be involved in this work! I will try my best to deliver the mysterious allure of the scary yet funny from the original work in the anime!
