It’s about Miko Yotsuya, a girl who’s able to see ghosts. Similar to how Allen Walker from D. Gray Man can see spirits.

2. Psychic Detective Yakumo
Psychic Detective Yakumo is probably another anime you haven’t heard of. Good ratings, but it flies under the radar a bit.
It’s about Yakumo, a guy who similar to Naru from Ghost Hunt, is a good detective. And he works in this field, basically.
Haruka, the other MC, works with Yakumo, making them dual protagonists. Where one goes, the other’s bound to be with them.
It’s worth watching for fans into these obscure genres of
3. Ghost Stories
Ghost Stories is a comedy ghost series, just like Mieruko-Chan. The
As a result, they gave it to the US and voice actors in America basically did whatever they wanted with the dialogue.
This is why the dubbed version is so much more famous. It’s controversial, politically incorrect, and WILL offend people.
Either way, this
4. Jujutsu Kaisen
Jujutsu Kaisen is a Shounen series, with action and supernatural elements. It might seem like a completely different
Yuji Itadori is able to do things most others aren’t. He’s a little special. And similar to Miko, he can see “things” he’s not supposed to see.
In the first episode Yuji and his friends mess around with a cursed object, which almost ends up killing them.
This is the start to the
Jujutsu Kaisen is of course more bloody, vile, and horrific but it’s a good
5. Gakkou Gurashi
Gakkou Gurashi, also known as “School Live” is an
The world outside is filled with zombies, and no one knows why. All they know is the world is in a pandemic.
The school they’re in conveniently has rations and supplies built for this type of problem, so all 4 main characters live inside it, hoping someone will eventually come and save them.
It goes a lot deeper than this though. Some characters also deal with mental illness, hallucinations, and other problems that come later.
It’s a psychological
Another is an
Students are suddenly going crazy at random times. Many ending up in tragic situations that leads to their own deaths.
Sometimes it’s by suicide, other times it’s by having the worst luck, seemingly. But it’s always bloody, tragic, and cruel in the way it takes place.
Mei Misaki, an introverted girl with an eye patch, witnesses all of it and somehow is unscathed. She’s joined by Sakakibara, who’s interested in Misaki.
It’s not the highest rated horror series, but it’s one of the most popular and is respected in general.
7. Strike the Blood
Strike The Blood is an action, school
There’s also the ECCHI part of it that brings fan service to the table.
Just like Mieruko-Chan, you get:
- Fan service.
- Thigh shots.
- Booty shots.
And basically anything that’s a tease thrown into the plot. Though in Mieruko-Chan’s case, it’s not extreme or excessive because it’s not Ecchi.
Both main characters can do and see things most people can’t, and have more similarities than it would seem on the surface.
8. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
