There’s still plenty of spooks to be had before horror-comedy anime Mieruko-chan says “boo!” this Halloween season, thanks to a new visual revealed on Friday the 13th!

As always, the new visual comes with two versions—one from a normal person’s point of view, and one from the eponymous “Mieruko-chan.”

It was also announced that Sora Amamiya would be performing the ending theme as well as the opening, with the song “Mita na? Mita yo ne?? Miteru yo ne???” (“You Saw It? You Saw It, Didn’t You?? You Can See It Right Now, Right???”). Her previously announced opening theme is titled “Mienai kara ne!?” (“I can’t see you, okay!?”).

The main cast brings in Sora Amamiya (Rent-a-Girlfriend) as the troubled Miko Yotsuya, Kaede Hondo (BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.) as best friend Hana Yurikawa, and Ayane Sakura (The Day I Became a God) as the ambitious Yuria Niguredo.

Tomoki Izumi’s horror comedy manga Mieruko-chan, currently published by Yen Press, follows a student named Miko, who wakes up one day to find that she’s suddenly able to see grotesque beings.

These supernatural creatures stalk Miko everywhere she goes, which leads to some terrifying and hilarious situations as she does her best to pretend she can’t see them. Ignoring them proves difficult, of course, as does keeping her friends out of harm’s way.

Joining him is Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil) as scriptwriter, Chikashi Kadekaru (JUNI TAISEN: ZODIAC WAR) as character designer and chief animation director, and Kana Utatane (RE-MAIN) as music composer.

Needless to say, this anime won’t be one to ignore!
