Mieruko-chan Chapter 1 Wow, it’s pouring. (I’m all wet.
My skirt’s soaked too.) CAN YOU SEE ME? …HEY CAN YOU SEE ME? CAN YOU SEE ME? CAN YOU SEE ME? CAN YOU SEE ME? CAN- Oh, I forgot to reply. SHE CAN’T SEE ME SHE CAN’T SEE ME (OH MY GOD I PANICKED, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT!?) (I CAN TOTALLY SEE HIM!
I CAN TOTALLY SEE HIM!) (I can totally see him.) (I saw something pretty crazy today.) (I’m probably gong to have nightmares.) (Maybe I’ll leave some salt out before I go to bed.) Ow- Ouch… My eye hurts… I got something in it. (SHIT.
I CAN’T TAKE THIS.) (Don’t react. I can do this!) (Calm down, it’s okay…) (In horror movies, these guys are always gone when you look a second time.) (HE’S STLL THERE!) Man, my eye still hurts! (He won’t disappear that easily.) All right. Salt’s ready… (Even if I see one of those things again…) (They’ll leave if I just ignore them.
It’l be fine.) (Was in the bathroom for about 20 minutes.) E X O R C I S M
-Exorcism tools A rosary. I should just go to sleep. MAMA… MA…
MA… (I’m going to buy a rosary tomorrow…) (And wash my bedsheets…) The salt had no effect. Hold out until the morning… Chapter 2! (Why am I suddenly able to see all of them?) (Was gone by the morning.) (I haven’t seen any today…) (Maybe I can’t see them anymo-) MORNING! Don’t scare me like that, Hana. How did you know it was me?! The softness… Anyway, what s up? You don’t need to be that surprised. It’s nothing… (I’m not seeing anything.) (Maybe it was just yesterday.) Hey Hana, this is the third floor, right? Huh? Of course.
Did you hit your head just now? MORNING. What is it?
Even I’d get a bit nervous if you stare at me that intimately… (WE’RE TOTALLY MAKING EYE CONTACT.
WE’RE TOTALLY MAKING EYE CONTACT.) (I’M SCARED.
I’M SCARED.) Hey!
Heeey! MORNING. Were you maybe… About to confess your love to me? Just kidding. Hey Hana… Where can I buy a rosary? A rosary?
Maybe at Donqui? Why do you want a rosary? MORNING. (I can totally still see them.) Did you see yesterday’s “Totally freaky”? What’s “Totally freaky”?
It’s about scary stories that really happened! I watched it because yokota-kun was on it but it was so scary! Oh I saw that! The one with the chopped-off head! That was so scary! And when they opened the locker…
AAHH! Th-they said… They said there was a chopped-off head in the locker! What kind of messed up shown is that? Is it okay to show that kind of stuff on tv? I dunno what to tell you. You’re pretty bad with these kinds of things, huh? I don’t get how anyone couldn’t be bad with them! I turned on the TV the other day and there just happened to be a scary scene! It made me spit out the borscht I was eating for dinner! (Borscht?) (I guess she won’t be able to help me.) Hey…
Can you open the locker for me? Why? -There could be a head inside!
-There isn’t… Please! I won’t be able to change! See? There’s nothi- Thank goodness! Thanks! I’m glad I have a friend like you. Yeah. Hurry up and change. But you know, sometimes on TV they quickly open it and there’s nothing inside, Then when they relax and turn around, there’s a monster right behind them. -Do you know what I mean?
-Totally. I really wish they didn’t do that stuff. Huh? I can’t reach. Do you mind grabbing my phone for me? Just can’t reach it. Sure. (It’s fine…) (Nothing will happen if I just pretend I can’t se-) Are you okay? Feeling anemic? I really wish they didn’t do that stuff. Chapter 6 (I bought some holy things.) These should keep me safe. Probably… Donqui really does have everything! You bought another one of those plushies? Don’t you already have like a million of them? It’s cuter when there’s more! You can’t talk, you bought four of those. It’s more effective when there’s more… Effective? Are those holy bracelets trending or something? Yeah, they totally are. Really? I’ve never seen anyone else with them. I’m a trendsetter. You mean they’ll start becoming more popular? Yeah, definitely. Maybe I should’ve bought some too. -Here.
-Huh? For me?
-Yeah. Yay, thanks!
We match now! Beating the trends! (Better increase Hana’s defense stats) Ill buy you a butt bun to return the favor. The heck is a butt bun? It’s chewy and fluffy and delicious! The stores just through here! Come on, lets go! (HANA!)
They’re avoiding us? (Is this the power of the bracelets?) There’s a strawberry butt bun too. (They’re actually staying away!) (These bracelets are amazing!) They only sell fifty strawberry ones each day, we’d better hurry, before they run out! (This all I needed. I have nothing left to fe- ar.) ITCHY What’s wrong?
Did your shoelaces come undone? -ITCHY
-ITCHY -I’m fine! My bracelet just snapped… What? You just bought it! (DON’T COME!
STAY BACK!) (I SAID STAY BACK! CAN IT SEE ME? IT’S GOING TO NOTICE ME! WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN IF HANA RUNS INTO IT?) (I’M SCARED! I’M SCARED! IF I TRY TO WALK AROUND IT WILL IT REALIZE I CAN SEE IT? WHAT DO I DO?) (I DON’T SEE ANYTH-AAAAHHH! Wow.
Both of them broke! Let’s go back to Donqui and get them replaced! -It’s fine…
-But you just bought them!
-Don’t worry about it…. (People that can’t see thew just go rough them.) (That was hard, but I’m okay now.) Oh, I dropped my plushie! That was close, I didn’t even realize I dropped it. Wai- Wow, you’re quick. I was about to leave it behind. You’re crying!
See, you’re not fine at all! I can’t believe they sold you those defective bracelets.
I’m going to go back and complain. Please don’t…
(Not after all that…) I won’t let them get away with this! (The power friendship.) You were spot on, godmother!
Ever since I put on bracelet, men have been fawning over me like there’s no tomorrow! Hehe. If the power wears off, come again and I’ll give you a new one for just 30,000 yen. I’ll definitely be back! (She’ll probably only be back another two times at best.) If I subtract the amount I have to pay those guys to hit on Sakura, I’ve barely made any profit. (I better find someone rich and stupid.) (Ow, my back.) (To mom: How are you doing? I’m catching up with you. Why don’t you come live with us? I’m really worried about you. You shouldn’t be out in the fields or trying to make a living out of fortune telling. From Masano) (I’m not going to leech off you after trying for so long.) Excuse me. -Do you have a really powerful holy bracelet?
-Something that won’t break straight away! My, what a pair of cuties. (Damn it, just a couple of brats…) You want a powerful holy bracelet?
I happen to have one that brings good luck. I doubt these kids have any money.
I’ll just sell them some old thing for 3000 yen. Here.
Great power resides within. Wow, that looks cool! -Can I try it on?
-Of course! -It broke again!
-Um… I guess the band was old.
Sorry, I’ll get you a new one. No, that’s not it. I may be rotten, but they don’t call me godmother of downtown for nothing. I can barely make it out…
A black mist (I can see it clearly.) ITCHY (Why did it follow me?) Have you been seeing anything strange lately, young lad- Nope. Has anything out of the ordinary- Nope. -Huh? What are you guys talking about?
-Nothing (She can see them, but she’s completely ignoring them.) (What a strong girl.) You’re not talking about anything scary, right? (And this other girl… Her life aura is incredible!) (Yeah, she really is something…) (It looks like she doesn’t realize it herself, but she’s probably attracting all sorts of things.) (The same way a blazing inferno attracts a moth.) (I doubt anything I give her will have an effect with an aura that strong.) Umm… Could you get the bracelet? O-Oh, yeah. Just give me a moment. I don’t sense anything particularly special about this girl.
But she’s definitely a girl that sees “Them.” Here it is. (I never thought I’d ever bring this out.) (I’m not so rotten as to let a girl around the same age as my grandson go through something like this!) Don’t worry, young lady. (It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way.) The one from before is just a toy compared to this. It’s the most powerful item I have. You don’t have to pay, just take it! (It’s filled with my power from back in my heyday.) My days of swindling end now! The godmother has returned! I guess the bracelets just break really easily.
Both of mine fell apart just now as well. -Yeah… You know, maybe I’m kind of done with them…
-Yeah. -Let’s get some buns and go home.
-Yeah! (It went back to the alley.) -Mom!
-I’m a new woman. The fortune-telling mansion is closed for good.
Takeda Mitsue (The godmother was defeated with a single blow.) Ah, butt buns are delicious! Right? It looks like you’re eating a butt.
