Hineni-

The way the ghosts kept repeating that same thing that girl on the phone was saying was pretty unsettling not gonna lie. Miko really has some nerve of steel. I like how she was about to cry and that other girl was just confused. That scene In the cafe was a close call. Outstanding recovery, with the wrestling video while the ghost just watches along haha.


cppn02

Yeh the JK ghost was the creepiest so far imo.


WhoiusBarrel

Getting out of the bus wasn't enough that thing was still staring at Miko until she was out of sight fucking hell.


Silent_Shadow05

Feel bad for the other gyaru girl. She mistakenly thought she made Miko cry, though technically she was, thanks to her gyaru voice pattern.


MaksimShadow

Well, at least it wasn't bus to hell or something.


FlameDragoon933

legit I thought the whole bus would be a spirit bus or something


melindypants

Me too. The bus driver had those dead eyes.


SIRTreehugger

Plot twist the driver can see ghost as well, but years of seeing them has turned him into a depressing husk of a person.


RavenWolf1

Plot twist 2. He has isekaied so many people that he can see their ghosts.


JEveryman

A slice of life romantic comedy about driver who isekais people for god is a story I want to read/watch now.


Rumpel1408

Well but Anaconda really is cool, have you seen those muscles

SocialLoser739

No matter what you do if miko is crying, it's your fault one way or another


Dylangillian

> That scene In the cafe was a close call. Outstanding recovery, with the wrestling video while the ghost just watches along haha I wonder if she even really had to do anything though. It doesn't seem like the ghosts (or whatever they are) can really interact with humans.


GoXDS

it's "understood" in Japan that they can only affect you if you acknowledge it.


Dylangillian

Ah I see, that makes sense then. Even if Miko is trying her best not to acknowledge them, she can't fool herself.


Bainos

It's nice to see her try new ideas to chase the ghosts away without acknowledging their presence. Although I felt bad for her with all those prayer beads breaking, if it was anyone but Hana with her, it would be pretty tricky to pretend that's normal.


odraencoded

So it's like with vampires "they can't come in your house if you don't invite them?" or the whole deal about demons only just following contracts very closely.


OutlandishnessNo1576

This is the episode where this show goes from just an anime with scary looking creatures to actually feeling creepy… just seeing ghosts isn’t enough to scare me, but seeing the ghosts breaking the praying beads, following her around and actually threatening her truly gives me that mysterious creepy feeling…


[deleted]

[удалено]


1704Jojo

Not gonna lie, I still prefer the manga in terms of creepiness. The auras in the anime are kind of off putting. But overall the anime is going pretty great.


genasugelan

Things look generally more terrifying in black and white, which is also one of the reasons why there hasn't been a good Junji Ito adaptation yet. Horror manga are very VERY hard to adapt in colour and also in terms of pacing since page turns are ideal horror pacings for everyone individually.


Gryse_Blacolar

That's why I'm looking forward to Uzumaki. It's the best way to adapt a horror manga.


edwardjhahm

At the very least, the very saturated look of anime tends not to go so well with horror. You COULD theoretically tone it down, but even then, color tends to make things less scary. Look at the darkest nights in live action/real life. In anime, even nights are pretty bright.


Almost_Ascended

[Manga spoilers]>!Really looking forward to the scene with the the balloon kid at the park. That scene in the manga legit made me jump...!<


Abhidawn

I was really scared because it was absolutely unexpected. But I don't wanna see next episode. You know what I mean.


Almost_Ascended

Yup. [Manga spoilers]>!Anime viewers are in for a surprise, especially since the anime increased his appearances to make the reveal more impactful!<


Gohyuinshee

\[MANGA SPOILERS\] >!Balloon Kid is still one of the most chilling ghost even when compared to the latest one!< Really hope the anime can recreate that scene.


harmST

That was one level 50 ghost. *Ghost used itchy. It was very effective! Beads fainted.*


WhoiusBarrel

Even a normal bus ride is the most terrifying and intense thing to ever sit through now for poor Miko. Can't imagine how bad it'll be for her to ride other transportations now. You know Miko's in real fucked situation when an actual spirit medium/fortune teller's ultimate tool is completely no match for her and even turned over a new leaf from the whole conning business immediately right afterwards.


Silent_Shadow05

I'm curious about something. Did those ultimate prayer beads explode both times because that worker ghost's negative aura was *too powerful* or is it because of Miko herself. Also, why did that ghost stop following her later on. Maybe the exploding prayer beads created a burst of positive energy, which was too much for the ghost? Hopefully, we get some answers soon.


WhoiusBarrel

I would assume its probably that worker ghost's aura if that alley scene was any indicator since her initial beads were working fine until it came along.


Silent_Shadow05

If that's true, I hope it doesn't appear anytime soon. It looks very powerful.


SnooDrawings303

"why did that ghost stop following her later on." if you paid attention the last couple of episodes the ghosts were trying to see if she reacts to them aka they wanted to see if she acknowledges their existence. So the reason why that ghost followed her is because when he came close to her and the beads exploded her expression changed a little bit so he had to confirm if it's just a coincidence or something else


jonaensi

the prayer beads got nothing against special grade curses


MildlyShadyPassenger

Sounds like someone needs to eat some rotten fingers.


Martian_on_the_Moon

> worker ghost's For me it looked like he was prisoner sentenced to death by hanging. His head looking like sack is also a hint, not to mention chains (not sure why not rope) around his neck.


Silent_Shadow05

I thought it was some worker who had an accident in some construction place, but maybe you're right.


ErenIsNotADevil

I think that was an executed prisoner ghost, not a worker ghost. It was a noose around his neck and sack on his head. Executions in Japan are pretty much only done by hanging, as well. Probably why he was so powerful. Note: You have to do some fucked up shit to get the death penalty in Japan. Multiple homicides level. They don't execute a lot of people in a year; the mastermind behind the 1995 sarin gas attacks only got the noose in 2018, 14 years after his sentence. The prayer beads exploded because of him. Every time he said "itchy," they got krangled. The itchy feeling was probably caused by the prayer beads, so he said "nah fuck that." I think the ghost stopped following because he got bored of Miko not-seeing him (as other ghosts have.)

Mr_Zaroc

Same boat The show releases before I go to bed, which is an unfortunate timing


steven4869

This anime just became way more interesting for me especially after the scene where Miko's bracelet broke for the third time(one with full power). A lot of close calls for Miko today and most of them were extremely scary. Looking forward to the next episode, and eagerly waiting for the explanation on what makes some spirits powerful than others.


genasugelan

Yeah, there are many possibilities where their power levels can go. One can be age, or maybe amount of stress, pain, regret or other emotions at their time of death, maybe their karma since that one powerful ghost looked like he was hanged after being a murderer or so.


SilberFelx

Miko sacrificing herself for Hana's safety, even though Hana would probably be harmed less due to not receiving psychological damage from seeing these things. That's my MC.


SocialLoser739

OUR MC


RandomDrawingForYa

Comrade!


mp3max

It's why we love her. Usually in comedies where the protagonist suffers we laugh because they deserve it in some way or another, but with Miko we laugh *despite* her suffering. She 100% does not deserve all this shit that keeps happening to her.


Bainos

I guess she was saving herself from seeing Hana diving through a ghost. She'd take even more SAN damage than by doing it herself.


Fazen55

Miko is such a brave girl, I wanna give her a hug everytime she tears up.


daspaceasians

Honestly, I'd rather become an exorcist instead.


Syokhan

Looks like Miko isn't the only one who can see ghosts, huh. Although the Godmother could only make out a vague shape. Looks like the beads work on some ghosts and don't on others, Miko said she was done with them but if I were her I'd still wear them, at least to protect herself against the lesser spirits. And that couple... looks like they deserve each other lol. Now I wanna have some butt buns too.


SocialLoser739

At least now we know miko can enjoy a life in the countyside as an old lady peacefully


Syokhan

Watch as she goes to plow the fields the the scarecrow there isn't actually a scarecrow.


SocialLoser739

That would be scary


Senira_G

> Looks like Miko isn't the only one who can see ghosts Wasn't that apparent from the first episode though? The closing ost video shows a close up of [Miko's eye](https://i.imgur.com/ydeUFSn.jpg), [Hana's eye](https://i.imgur.com/wmXXyAC.jpg) and that [other chick's eye](https://i.imgur.com/7KKjTXa.jpg). Miko's and other chick's eyes have reflections of ghosts in them while Hana's doesn't so I'm pretty sure she can see the ghosts too.


mazurri

that bedroom scene in the ED also hint the same thing but much more clearer.


Gryse_Blacolar

I just noticed that the one in Hana's eye is a butt daifuku.


AdvielOricon

Some one give this girl a Holly Hand Grenade.


Rumpel1408

PhantomWolf83

They're not being very subtle about the shape of the female ghost's [mouth](https://i.imgur.com/zfuUder.jpg), are they. Reminds me of that bun from Wandering Witch. This show continues to be as scary as hell but really enjoyable.


LeonKevlar

Same with the groper ghost last week that had literal breasts for eyes.


darthvall

So a male pervert will have breast eye in the afterlife?


Woeladenchild

I am suddenly worried about this whole "booby fanatic" persona I've established in my friend group.


Free-Mall1996

Glad I'm not the only one with a dirty mind


Syokhan

I mean, can you really say you have a dirty mind when it's already implying very strongly that it is what you think it is?


Free-Mall1996

Are they actually implying that when other male ghosts also have a similar shaped mouth?


Syokhan

Maybe? :p


bananeeek

I got hyped when that Granny talked big shit and I honestly thought those beads would be a real deal. The beads snapping instantly caught me off guard. I have no idea what could possibly keep Miko safe at this rate. A flamethrower with blessed napalm? I like this show more and more. And there's a scene after the credits! Makes me wonder if the Granny will show up again, since she's in the ED and all...


Mana_Croissant

The beads kinda WERE the real deal though. It is just that they are weak so when a stronger creature than they can handle appear they just get destroyed


bananeeek

Well, real deal, as in I hoped they would be able to handle this weird Ooishi-san.


Hugokarenque

Should have tried blasting the air conditioner on max to exorcise it.


Proxiehunter

I understood that reference.


NittanyEagles55

I like Godmother a lot already. Excited to see how she can help out Miko in the future. Glad she is turning a new leaf!

KorekaBii

She reminds me of best girl/grandma Pioran from To Your Eternity. Do they share the same VA I wonder?


NittanyEagles55

Yes! Very similar vibes. Love Pioran as well. Best grandma out there


darthvall

I thought that just means she completely gave up from ghost related things and just want to spend more time with her family? I mean, she did say that the bracelet has all of her power, but it just snapped very easily because of a random (but very strong) ghost.


DrNavi

> I thought that just means she completely gave up from ghost related things and just want to spend more time with her family? I think she gave up the doing that con artist ghost stuff. I think she’s going to go back to do some real ghost stuff now


Bainos

"I'm going to stop being a con artist and go back to the wise, old and mysterious exorcist." *Bracelets instantly breaks.* "Nevermind, I'll just be a retiree."


genasugelan

Character development within a few minutes. I like the morally grey characters, especially if they want to redeem themselves. Although, her reasoning of not wanting to be a burden is also pretty interesting.


ImperialDane

As always some great ghosts with some freaky design. More exploration of shall we say "Toxic" people and the sort of things they attract. But the main element here was definitely the prayer beads and the encounter with The Godmother. This is where things kick into gear. An Old time scam artist who might have at one point done something good, but now is cynical and old. Only for Miko to reignite something in her.. and then extinguish it just as quickly. Good thing the godmother could not see Mister Itchy in full display. But Hana blazing as a lighthouse effectively keeping her safe (and probably the source of her constant hunger) while poor Miko chan has no real defence and for now. No ally as the Godmother retires to the countryside.


SocialLoser739

Godmother needs that training arc again


wcypierre

>Godmother retires you mean, time to power up


mcrobertx

OH! What if instead of powering up, she trains her granddauther! What if the pig tailed girl is her granddaughter?


melindypants

Oh that would make sense as to why she was eyeing the stall - she wanted to talk to her grandmother about coming home/training her!


Bainos

Seems like there is a good chance it's the case. Tagging for those who skip them, [OP and ED] >!we clearly see in the end the successive shots with Miko (seeing the ghosts), Hana (not seeing anything) and the other girl is seeing some vague, blurry shape -- which is also what the Godmother saw.!<


FlameDragoon933

> Godmother retires I read this in the voice of JoJo part 3 narrator


ICantSeeLikeSa-chan

They did the slo-mo scene where the Godmother gets blasted with prayer beads so well. Hana's aura looks even brighter than I pictured. Miko is starting to notice signs that there's something more to the things she is seeing. The next episode will be thrilling.


goatedwriter

Miku is the natural enemy of Koh the face stealer


mazurri

this episode have a good balance between horror and comedy. some said that horror and comedy won't work together but this anime proved them wrong.


Lemurians

It was definitely the best episode so far. Wasn't seeing the hype after the first two, but this one brought me back in. Pretty large jump in quality.


Houdiniman111

Glad to hear it. The series starts off solidly in the territory of a gag story but it develops a lot more going forward.


SocialLoser739

Yep, with this ep now people can stop complaining about the fanservice


Rumpel1408

Now they will complain over the lack of fanservice


ewwman1

Rumpel1408

SkyLETV

I mean, I'm not gonna complain but I was fine with the fanservice :'D


KorekaBii

Yeah the "ecchi" shots were way down this ep, but that's what people had been predicting who were following the source material. I mean, Passione still will show some shots that are a bit scintillating (and the fact that both Miko and Hana are just super thicc), but nothing compared to the first two episodes.


SocialLoser739

Hana booba too stronk


KorekaBii

And if you're a butt and thigh guy, Miko is top of the class. :D These two compliment each other well.


SocialLoser739

Now you are speaking my language


zairaner

this episode should be a good measure for the amount of fansevice when passione doesn't have any fanservice from the manga to adapt, which will be every episode after the next one.


RandomDrawingForYa

I don't think I've ever seen a good horror story that wasn't also a comedy. Pure horror is just lackluster as far as I'm concerned.


Kenjiko3011

I'm glad that the anime adapts the ghost's designs pretty well, the design in the manga is top notch and it's only getting better. The girl ghost on the bus is pretty terrifying and the whole sequence is very unsettling. the ghost in the cafe is also very terrifying and has some very suggestive imagery. As a manga reader, I'm very looking forward to see the next episodes because the manga is unexpectedly good.


stephenthatfoste

She was so happy to have found a solution, crushing to see that first set of beads snapping.


mcrobertx

Alternatively: Beads work, anime over


[deleted]

The guy has a single female ghost after him. The female has an entire harem of male ghosts after her. Two is a crowd, three is a party, a hundred is a family <3. Regardless, once again, being Miko is suffering.

LunarGhost00

> The female has an entire harem of male ghosts after her I'm seriously wondering if these ghosts were all already ghosts who just happened to follow a cute girl or if they were all people she knew. Because at first I thought the ghost girl haunting the guy was an obsessed ex-girlfriend who died, but then this girl shows up with a harem of dead dudes... If they were all people who dated/stalked her in life, then that is way too many guys who died chasing after her and that's a scary thought.


Mundology

They don't have to be the spirits of the dead, they could just be grudges of the living taken form.

dagreenman18

Another week of “Being Miko is Suffering”. Leaned so heavily on the horror that the culture was almost nonexistent. It was still there, but in very small moments. Probably a good thing because this was the funniest and scariest of the 3. The bus scene was a very well-done horror sequence. Starting with the ghost so far in the background and so normal looking that the horror doesn’t even start until right as the OP kicks in. The creepy-ass voices trick you into thinking it’s the girl sitting next to her. Then the nightmare hydra pops out of suddenly. Mounting tension the whole time up to when Miko tricks it off the bus. Miko’s suffering face was priceless when the girl next to her said all the same things. Despite terrifying her every day, her sight has proven to be a very good scumbag detector. “Legally Distinct Starbucks” guy already had bad vibes around him without the ghost with the… interesting mouth. Miko’s quick thinking with the wrestling video saved her the wrath of Georgia O’Keefe face. Bonus it looks like dude will get what’s coming to him anyway with the chick he met up with. So prayer beads don’t work for shit. So much for that. At least they don’t seem to work on the powerful ghosts. The lesser ones were moving away in the alley. Even the most powerful set she could get her hands on with the power of the Glow still asploded. Silver lining though: we know now that Hana is safe from ghosts because of her powerful aura. She also sadly attracts them too. Meaning Miko is stuck seeing more of them as long as she’s around Hana. Once again we see the third girl and she’s creeping around the old fortune teller. The Godmother did say she has grandkids around Miko and Hana’s age so maybe she’s her granddaughter? I hope we get a proper introduction soon since Miko needs help and the Godmother retired to live with her family. Notes - They couldn’t resist themselves with some culture though. They love their thigh shots and the was that lip shot at the coffee shop. - Heh she’s never eaten a Butt. - I do love Hana’s rabbits and their ugly cute expressions. - where do we go from prayer beads? Talismans? Crucifixes? Super Soaker with holy water?


Bainos

> I do love Hana’s rabbits and their ugly cute expressions. My biggest worry for now is probably that she'd see a ghost that looks like Hana's bunny and would end up being scared of it. Miko doesn't deserve that.


dagreenman18

God that’s totally going to happen. it’s too perfect not to. Or Miko’s charm that’s also pretty adorable.

The fanservice is non-existent in this episode. Joy for some, grief for many. That grandma also can see "them",interesting. So now we know miko is not the only one. Looks like we are slowly getting into the lore this ep.


Ocixo

There was just a little bit with the bunny between Hana’s breast, but yeah that’s almost nothing. The difference in fan service in last week’s episode and this one is pretty insane. We dialed back from 100% to near 0% in the span of a week. People had been saying this would (probably) happen, but with how last week’s episode looked… I could hardly believe it till I finished this episode. Edit: corrected a sentence.

[Look at these two.](https://i.imgur.com/3g2vBYV.jpg) They're really made for each other. It is disturbing to see how many balding old man spirit is following the girl. She's clearly someone who's targets old men for money. So looking [at the prices of the prayer beads earlier](https://i.imgur.com/OhMuWP3.jpg) it looks like Miko [just spent at least ¥16000 for her prayer beads.](https://i.imgur.com/hCInidy.jpg) Sucks that when [she finally thought that they're working](https://i.imgur.com/1zAWqu3.jpg), it just ends up [breaking in front of that huge sack face spirit.](https://i.imgur.com/WTUI9PS.jpg) At least Miko learned today [that she can safely walk through spirits](https://i.imgur.com/aYnneWu.jpg) when she needs to. It's just not a pleasant experience for her. [The Godmother Mitsue is here!](https://i.imgur.com/1OclHSd.jpg) She might not see them as clearly as Miko but it's always good to know that Miko isn't alone in seeing these spirits. Miko didn't even have to say anything, [she quickly understood what's going on.](https://i.imgur.com/GosQXR6.jpg) While she isn't able to see the spirits clearly, [she is able to see Hana's aura](https://i.imgur.com/FLZShMP.jpg) which is something that Miko can't even see. Poor Miko though, [even The Godmother's strongest prayer bead](https://i.imgur.com/nd8VgRf.jpg) seems to be no match for the spirit that's following Miko. Even the ones [Hana was wearing broke!](https://i.imgur.com/ilWBUnO.jpg) And that [after credits punchline though.](https://i.imgur.com/zt0kvEG.jpg) Seems that Mitsue may need to retire now after what just happened xD


zairaner

>Scared Miko *Do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows it down?*


Syokhan

> She's clearly someone who's targets old men for money. Huh, I never thought of it that way. I always thought that they were both such flirts that even ghosts who can't interact with them were obsessed with them, but this makes sense. I like it, but geez, the implications are much darker.


Rumpel1408

Despite *nothing* happening Miko is still the bravest and best girl Oh also that Granny is bound for a path to rightousness, we are entering the plot part of the show, and the lewdness got turned down, probably for the better *sigh*

Damn, that first scene on the bus was really something. I hate this trope. With how the ghost of the girl kept coming close to Miko with subsequent shots creeped me out. The couple at the cafe are *truly* made for each other. The dude has a [ghost girl stalker](https://i.imgur.com/KkO1hnf.jpg) *(probably a yandere when she lived?)* after him and the [girl with her reverse harem of ghost dudes](https://i.imgur.com/VGpF8Rs.jpg) lol. I was curious why so many ghosts were popping up lately. [So it really is because of Hana](https://i.imgur.com/1UGuceJ.jpg). I wonder why she has such a powerful aura that ends up attracting the ghosts.


JuangWahyu

Law of conservation of energy probably, all those calories of her gluttony that didn't turned into fat should've gone somewhere, apparently they turned into a strong supernatural aura.

> Damn, that first scene on the bus was really something Maji ukeru, huehueheuehue

The bus has to be the scariest one so far. Jesus Christ. I was relieved that at the end, the ghost didn't suddenly chase after the bus while looking at Miko as then I would shit my pants.

I am not sure if people have to die to create a ghost in this anime. In some cultures, you could get hunted by spirits created by other people's negative feelings. I doubt the girl from the couple drove 7 men to suiside.


Malin_Keshar

It'd be generous to the girl in question, to think that so many (specifically only old) dudes died and attached themselves to her without her knowing or having anything to do with them. I think it is a safe bet that she is a gold digger at best, black widow at worst.


hasso666

The manga made it a lot more obvious but the girl haunting the dude has you know what for a face.

Stalker meet stalker trope. I dig it

>I was curious why so many ghosts were popping up lately. So it really is because of Hana. I wonder why she has such a powerful aura that ends up attracting the ghosts. It's strange, considering the fact that her aura is protecting her at the same time. I suppose that that means that ghosts are attracted to all powerful auras, and when they find that it's this kind of aura, they start to haunt everyone in close proximity.

And here I was thinking that the one in the bus was going to be a normal-looking one for some reason. [What a fool I was.](https://imgur.com/a/TI0a8ct) I love how during the last segment of [the jealous ghost](https://imgur.com/a/yy7qhun) Miko ignored the guy the same way she all the ghosts. [Well, it's good to see that the guy is dating someone just like him.](https://i.imgur.com/7XdD9Cw.png) [Wow, entering that ghost really broke Miko.](https://i.imgur.com/cXTw0vN.png) [I guess that's why he was following her.](https://i.imgur.com/QocjBY3.png) But damn, that guy sure was powerful. I honestly thought that [those beads](https://i.imgur.com/AJLR7nP.png) that [the Godmother](https://i.imgur.com/wKBUXLR.png) gave Miko were going to work against him.

3 epi in I'm a bit surprised the weird girl is still not in the group yet. The first part was just how life is bruh. Everyone is cheating lol. The second part tho was different. The old lady can't do anything, so how will miko handle this then? And the old lady said hana had a strong aura? Is it aura attracting ghost or protecting her? Hana without shame, said it taste like butt. Hana eats ass confirmed? Lol. Less interesting camera angles, but gotta respect the thigh appreciation.


SocialLoser739

Yep, hana eats everyone's ass


octopathfinder

Wow, the Anaconda the Badger play Miko pulled in the cafe was actually 200 IQ.


Vision75

The ghosts were especially disturbing this episode. I’m a little surprised with just how well they can balance the horror of the ghosts with the humor of the scenarios and the characters’ reactions. This show is really good so far! Miko’s eyes always look so sad and tired. It’s understandable, considering what she goes through on a daily basis. I just hope she finds relief one day. Also Hana’s outfit was very cute.


Xatu44

In which Hana eats ass and Miko suffers. LMAO at her missing the bus, though.

**ARIENAI YO NE? DOU OMOU? MAJI UKERU! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!**

There's just something about Miko looking side-to-side during the OP. It's just so satisfying and smooth to look at.


darthvall

I'm not the bravest person out there, but why do I keep watching this anime lol. It's both creepy and funny, especially that prisoner(?) in the dark alley scene. It went back to creepy when he followed Miko around. My guess is ghost couldn't be too far from their death/bound location, that's why the ghost went back to the alley.

This episode was so thrilling. That bus journey was terrifying tbh. Question for other did the face/mouth of that restaurant female ghost looked like \[could be NSFW for some users\] >!female genitalia!< or it was just me?


Pesuri

I was thinking same. These ghosts are terrifying!

Bus driver looks depressed

>Question for other did the face/mouth of that restaurant female ghost looked like \[could be NSFW for some users\] female genitalia or it was just me? Definitely not just you I was just about to post the same question.

Don't know if it's just me, but I thought [the](https://imgur.com/l6B52QU) [ghosts](https://imgur.com/ZBXxATO) were even creepier in this episode! [That's scary](https://imgur.com/YiD3Utk), and it made me think Miko could get herself in trouble at some point if she ever talked to someone *before* realizing they're ghosts. She could give it away! [That strange smile](https://imgur.com/xvGKnCi) she had after passing through the ghost... Even if she ever finds a way not to see them again, she'll have PTSD for life! The old lady might have been a scumbag, but [she still had real powers](https://imgur.com/AZbffki), AND [she was also kind/generous](https://imgur.com/Uz3DJAQ) to people who actually needed help! I wonder if we'll see her again, even if she went back and all. She could be a big help/guide, not only for Miko, but also for [this other girl](https://imgur.com/2pNB2lO), if she sees them as well! [That's interesting!](https://imgur.com/CvHhuvW) So Miko has the sight, and Hana has a powerful aura? I wonder if there's a reason for that, or if it just happened! Thankfully [Hana's an airhead](https://imgur.com/LHaL4PU) so she fell for the 'Prayer beads are trendy!' thing, but I'm really worried about Miko keeping on doing that sort of thing; Hana might never thing anything of it, but the ghosts might start wondering why this one girl is filling up her house/her accessories with ghost-warding things. A smarter ghost might figure it out at some point, she uses these things because she sees ghosts. If her game plan is to ignore them and pretend she doesn't see them so they go away, she can't use things to make them stay away from her (well, unless it works 100% of the time so the problem would be solved, but that's not a given).


stiveooo

Watch the after credits!

You mean the redemption arc?
