Mieruko-Chan is a comedy, horror, and supernatural anime that has received an anime adaptation as part of the Fall Anime 2021 anime season. The studio behind it is Studio Passione, which has had its hand in various horror and comedy anime in the past, including Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and High School DxD. It is an adaptation of a very popular manga series of the same name written by Tomoki Izumi.

It is being directed by Yuuki Ogawa, who has prior experience directing Ishizoku Reviewers for Studio Passione. She has also directed episodes in FLCL progressive and Miru Tights.

I adore the respect Mieruko Chan gives the ghosts, and I mean both the show and the character. It could very easily just play off the entire thing as a big joke and treat itself not as seriously as it does, but I’m glad that it doesn’t do that. The moments when we spot a ghost are exactly as scary to us as Mieruko in the show, and the show wouldn’t have worked as well if that wasn’t the case.

The more I think about it, the more glad I am that Studio Passione is adapting this series. The series was practically made for the studio, with them having prior experience with many anime in the same genre as Mieruko Chan, especially a few adaptations of High School DxD and Higurashi. The unique brand of horror-comedy that made people love the original source material in the first place is a difficult sort to adapt, and Passione is the studio that was always going to do it the justice it deserved.

Mieruko Chan Episode 3 was fantastic on all fronts, and a lot of it is because Mieruko is now my favourite character of this season in anime. She is headstrong and has a strong sense of justice, alongside being absolutely hilarious. The biggest thing she has going for her is that she acts just like a reasonably smart teenager would do in her situation. It is satisfying to witness that after decades of teenagers in anime being portrayed as either complete babies or full-grown adults.

Many ghosts were featured in Mieruko Chan Episode 3, with one of them being used for a hilarious joke at the start of the episode. The others, however, were chilling and used to enhance the story and world-building of the show. We now know more about the universe and ghosts in Mieruko-Chan than ever before, and things are becoming more and more clear by the week. The one time characters in this episode were also hilarious, including the coffee shop couple and the Godmother.

Overall, I loved the events in Mieruko Chan Episode 3. While this particular episode might not have been as good as the absolute perfection in episode 2, it was still a fantastic watch. I can’t wait to see where the show goes next, and it is fast becoming the best thing I get to watch and review every week.

Mieruko Chan Episode 3 Review- Art and Music

Not much to add here other than what I have already said about the show in previous reviews, other than I loved the piano piece that played in Mieruko Chan Episode 3. The show has found the perfect mix of creepy music and animation to enhance the horror aspects, which the show has needed to nail down ever since its start. Horror is hard to do, and it is especially hard when done alongside other elements like comedy. Mieruko-Chan does so beautifully, and that is commendable.

Verdict

Mieruko Chan Episode 3 was another fantastic episode in a series that keeps getting better every episode. The episode was sharp and had a great narrative, alongside being hilarious as always.
