Yen Press has licensed the manga in English for North America, and it describes the story:
One day, Miko suddenly started seeing grotesque beings that others couldn’t. Her response was not to run, not to face them, but to do everything she can to completely ignore them! Can she keep a straight face and continue her day-to-day life while surrounded by horrifying monsters?
Comments from cast
I had enjoyed reading the original for a long time and thought “I want to do this work!”, So I was very happy when it was decided! I didn’t think that the teaser PV, in which my voice came out at the beginning, would say, “It’s not like Miko’s voice, but a horror-like feeling!” I’m really looking forward to having you enjoy it!
This is Kaede Hondo, who plays the role of Hana Yurikawa! I read the original and became a fan! I love the balance between horror and gag so much, and it makes me feel scared but laugh. I would like to express Hana, who is natural and full of vitality at her own pace, and Hana, who is happy to interact with Mikoto. Thank you!
I read the original for the first time during the audition, but I couldn’t stop reading Volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4, and said, “It might be a disqualification for manga lovers to have missed such a good work …” I felt that. I am very surprised and very happy to be able to shoot Yuria, who seems to be highly competitive. I would like to do my best by making the best use of my life experience.
