Mieruko-chan is a comedic horror manga written and illustrated by Tomoki Izumi. The manga originally began on Izumi’s Twitter account in 2018, before being picked up by Kadokawa.

The series ranked in the top 10 Web Mangas in the 2019 Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Taisho awards.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
Miko is a typical high school student whose life turns upside down when she suddenly starts to see gruesome and hideous monsters. Despite being completely terrified, Miko carries on with her daily life, pretending not to notice the horrors that surround her. She must endure the fear in order to keep herself and her friend Hana out of danger, even if that means coming face to face with the absolute worst. Blending both comedy and horror, Mieruko-chan tells the story of a girl who tries to deal with the paranormal by acting indifferent toward it.
The Mieruko-chan TV anime adaptation is currently in production for an October 2021 broadcast on Tokyo MX.
