Horror-comedy animation ‘Mieruko-chan’ is based on a Japanese manga series by Tomoki Izumi. The protagonist, Miko Yotsuya, is a normal high school student whose life takes a dramatic change when she suddenly has the ability to see ghosts and spirits. Despite her initial fear, she eventually adapts to living with the hideous ghosts who seem to be following her wherever she goes. Nonetheless, she undergoes a complete transformation after being inspired to assist others in need by a series of unforeseen events that show her how her talents might be put to better use.
The horror-comedy series might not have attracted as many viewers as popular anime like “My Hero Academia,” but the makers should be commended for successfully blending two distinct genres. As a result, it should come as no surprise that the program has been well welcomed by both reviewers and viewers alike, with many raving reviews popping up all over the internet. After the completion of the first season, viewers naturally want to know when they may expect the second. If you’re wondering the same thing, you’re in luck because we have the answers.
Mieruko Chan Season 2 Renewal Status
There is no definitive proof, but we may examine the relevant aspects anyhow. The primary one is the original text. There are six volumes of the manga, so it’s reasonable to assume they have enough material to keep going. It’s important to remember that the manga is still in progress, with no obvious conclusion in sight. The number of copies sold is a secondary consideration. The sales numbers don’t yet indicate whether or not the program is profitable. It’s just too soon to know at this point. It’s possible that we won’t know more for another six months. To sum up, neither a confirmation nor an expected release date has been provided.
Mieruko Chan Characters
- Miko Yotsuya Voiced by: Sora Amamiya(Japanese); Alexis Tipton(English)

Miko’s air-headed best friend is oblivious to Miko’s current situation. She is fond of eating. However, her eating also increases her life aura, which makes ghosts more attracted to her.

Mieruko-chan Season 2 Plot
By cleverly convincing the maiden shrine spirits to destroy Zen’s mother’s ghost, Miko helps him put the past behind him and begin a new, peaceful life in the season one finale. Mitsue, meantime, is perplexed as to why she took a photo of Miko and Hana at the shrine. The main character feels obligated to give a gift to the shrine ghost for their assistance. However, her attempts at making peace with the ghosts are greeted with hostility. But just as they’re about to eat Miko, she awakens in her bed, certain that it was all a horrible dream. However, at the end of the episode, it seems that the shrine spirit and the shrine maidens have been secretly following the main character.
Season 2 of the horror anime is set to resolve some of the burning issues brought up in the first season and wrap up a number of loose ends. Like the show’s viewers, Miko doesn’t understand how or why she developed the ability to see ghosts and spirits. In addition, it is not obvious why Yuria demonstrates comparable skills. The photographs Mitsue receives in the final episode seem to be conveying a message, yet he seems bewildered and disoriented. The sender’s name and motivation are likewise concealed. If the second season of ‘Mieruko-chan’ is anything like the first, viewers will finally get their questions answered and the show’s many plot threads will be neatly wrapped up.
Mieruko Chan Season 2 Expected Release Date
In order to make fair predictions about the future season’s release, we need to learn basic data and information. In March of 2021, it was reported that the first season of Mieruko Chan would be adapted into an anime, and by October of the same year, it had its world debut. As a result, it’s hard to say how long the manufacturing process will take. The only issue with the show is that the producers could use more content. Season 1 was collected into four books, as we discussed before. Mieruko Chan has been published in a total of six volumes thus far. Since two volumes wouldn’t be enough for an anime production, we may have to hold off on the formal announcement till the remaining volumes are released.
Since the manga will be completed in early 2024 or late 2023, the release date of the anime is quite unlikely to occur before these times. We have little choice but to brace ourselves for a very long wait, since it is obviously a gigantic time loop. We will update this article as soon as we get official data from the official sources since the information presented here is not official and is based on our exclusive viewpoint.
