Kadokawa announced a few hours ago that the anime adaptation of Mieruko-chan is in production, and it is will debut in 2021. The series comes from the horror manga of the same name by Tomoki Izumi, which has been published in Japan since 2018 and is currently being serialized on the pages of ComicWalker.

At the top of the article you can watch the first subtitle trailer released by Kadokawa, while at the bottom you can see the key visual, which is available in two versions. The manga is one of the horrors with the highest average fan rating of all time, just behind Berserk, Dorohedoro and Attack of the Giants.

For those unfamiliar with the work, remember that the table of contents reads as follows: "Miko is a student like many others, but her life takes a strange turn when she suddenly sees grotesque demonic creatures everywhere. Although Miko is afraid of what happened, she lives on with her life as if nothing had happened, hoping that that way the ghosts will leave her alone. However, monsters can also be a premonition of what is about to happen, and once Miko learns it, he will have to decide when and how to step in to save the lives of loved ones.".

Yuki Ogawa (FLCL Progressive, Miru Tights, Interspecies Reviewers) directs the series at Studio Passione Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil, careful hero) oversees the script. The phenomenal character design is curated by Chikashi Kadekaru (June Taisen: Zodiac War for whom the alchemist exists) while Makoto One (High School DxD Hero, Interspecies Reviewers) specifically deals with drawing the monsters, the central part of the work. The release is expected in the second half of 2021.
