The protagonist of “Mieruko-chan” is a high school girl named Miko Yotsuya, who can “see” all kinds of strange and dangerous people. Miko has a family of four, and her family also appears in the story, but there is a past between Miko and her father that cannot be told without tears. In this article, I’ll explain if Miko’s father is dead in Mieruko-chan, and I’ll also give you a spoiler-filled summary of her mother, brother, and past!
|[Mieruko-chan] Miko’s father is dead?
Here’s a spoiler-filled explanation as to whether Miko’s father is dead!
Miko’s father appears.
Miko’s father appeared in episode 9 of the original manga. When Miko woke up and went from her room on the second floor to the living room, her father, mother, and younger brother were gathered at the dining room table. The family talked to Miko as if it was expected, and there was a regular family routine, but the only strange thing was a peculiar and dangerous guy who haunts the father. The only strange thing was the presence of the weird and dangerous thing that haunted her father, but only Miko could see it.
Miko’s father had died.
Her father had been a normal part of the family conversations without any discomfort, but he had died within the past year. I was so focused on the existence of the bad guy that I didn’t think he was already deceased. Because Mieruko-chan is written from Miko’s perspective, the deceased father appeared as if he were still alive.
The father seemed to be very worried about Miko in the conversation, but it had something to do with the past events between the father and Miko. I will explain more about the past of Miko and her father later.
The cause and circumstances of Miko’s father’s death.
The circumstances of Miko’s father’s death and the cause of death have not been revealed. The deceased father appeared only once in the original story, and the end of Miko’s father was not mentioned until episode 37.

Here’s a summary of what happened to her father and Miko in the past!
Dad ate Miko’s pudding.
Miko’s father had eaten Miko’s pudding before she died. Miko got angry when he ate her pudding and had a big fight with her father.
Because of this past, even after his father passed away, Miko’s younger brother would jokingly say, “Write your name on the pudding that Miko bought, or you will be eaten again.
Dad and Miko couldn’t make up.
The father and Miko had a big fight over pudding, and the father died without making up. This suggests that her father’s death may have been sudden and unexpected. Miko must have regretted her father’s death. She bought a pudding for herself at a convenience store and offered it to her father’s Buddhist altar.
Miko’s father said that he had always wanted to apologize to Miko for the fight that had broken up between them. The father and Miko were able to make up, although they could not talk, the reason for the deformed yabaiya to the father remains unknown.

Here’s a list of the main character, Miko Yotsuya’s, family in one sentence!
Miko’s father: name unknown
Miko’s father’s name is unknown. He was already deceased and died within a year, but it is not clear when he died, how or why, or the cause of death. She had a big fight with Miko because she ate Miko’s pudding without permission before she died, and she regretted that she died without being able to make up with Miko. She still cares about Miko even after her death. Now that she can see Miko, Miko offers her pudding to her father’s altar, and they can make up indirectly.
Miko’s mother: name unknown
Miko’s mother’s name is unknown. She is a beautiful woman who looks just like Miko, and her body shape is almost the same as Miko’s, so Miko tries on clothes for her mother’s birthday present. Since she doesn’t appear in many scenes, there is no detailed information about her.
Miko’s younger brother: Kyosuke
Miko’s younger brother is an elementary school student, and his name is Kyosuke Yotsuya. He loves his sister, and when he notices a change in Miko’s behavior and thinks she has a boyfriend, he follows her home from school.
She has a strong sense of justice, and when she imagines that an evil man is deceiving Miko, she says, “I will protect my sister! When she imagines that a bad guy is cheating on Miko, she says, “I’ll protect my sister!” She also rushes into the bathroom while Miko is bathing, thinking that he might have a hickey on his body if she has a boyfriend. After that, he worries about Miko and looks for her when he can’t reach her at the shrine.
|What is the mysterious column in Mieruko-chan? Is it a stairway to heaven?
The protagonist, Miko Yotsuya, and her best friend, Hana Yurikawa, visit a donut shop, Mrs. Donut, or Mised, to eat donuts in order to recover from the mental depression caused by seeing too many dangerous people.
Miko and her best friend, Hana Yurikawa, find themselves standing in the wrong line at Mised. What is the nature of the mysterious line that Miko got in? In this article, I will explain what the mysterious line is in Mieruko-chan, and discuss whether it is really a stairway to heaven!
[Mieruko-chan] What is the mysterious line?
Now let’s talk about those mysterious rows!
A mysterious line of dangerous people.
A mysterious line is a line of dangerous people. They are characterized by their very human-like appearance. They look like ordinary spirits and look harmless, but they are quietly lined up in the mysterious line.
The ones that are in trouble will be eaten.
The dangerous ones in the mysterious line are eaten by the strange-looking dangerous ones. At the head of the mysterious line, a strange-looking yabai-yakuza was waiting for the line to move forward. This strange-looking creature was eating the spirits of the mysterious line one after another.
|[Mieruko-chan] What is the identity of the mysterious line?
From here, I’ll explain if the mysterious line is really a stairway to heaven, and I’ll also summarize where the mysterious line appears!
Is the mysterious line a stairway to heaven?
In the story, it is said that the true identity of the mysterious line is the stairway to heaven. The person who told the story of the stairway to heaven was Mitsue Takeda, the godmother of the downtown area. Mitsue is a psychic, so she has long been able to see dangerous people disappearing in lines at certain times. But even Mitsue, who told the story of the Stairway to Heaven, didn’t know the true identity of the mysterious line.
Where the mysterious line appears.
There are two places where the mysterious rows appear until episode 37. The back alley next to Mrs. Donut The drink bar at Cafe Restaurant Guast
These are the two places where mysterious lines appeared in the work, but the Godmother said that there were several other places where mysterious lines were formed. To the psychic Godmother, the mysterious lines themselves were a familiar sight, but she did not know that the mysterious lines were eventually eaten by the strange-looking monsters, because she could not see the strange-looking monsters. Therefore, the Godmother thought that there might be a stairway to the heavens that could explain the identity of the mysterious column.
|[Mieruko-chan] Considering whether the mysterious column is a stairway to heaven.
From here, we’ll consider if the mysterious column is really a stairway to heaven!
Is the mysterious line a line of spirits that will come of age?
The mysterious row may be lined with spirits that will become Buddhas. The reason for this is that the mysterious rows are lined with spirits that have served their purpose after death. One time, Miko met an old woman who seemed to have dementia, cowering on the stairs of a pedestrian bridge at night. As she tried to carry the old lady home on her back, she noticed the presence of a yabai-yatsu outside the house. At first, Miko was frightened by the appearance of the spirit, as it was a male spirit that repeatedly said “Yon, Roku, San, Ichi” as it approached Miko and her grandmother.
At first, Miko was afraid of the spirit’s appearance, but then she realized that the spirit wanted to tell Grandma a number, so she typed “4631” into her phone and showed it to Grandma. When she saw the number, she was able to unlock the safe, which she had been unable to do so many times before. The male spirit outside her house was her husband, who had stayed at this place to tell the number to her grandmother, who had forgotten the key to the safe.
The man’s spirit, who had accomplished his unfinished business through Miko, expressed his gratitude to Miko. The next day, this man’s spirit stood in a mysterious line and was eaten by a monster waiting for him at the end of the line. It can be inferred that this man’s spirit was in a state to fulfill its purpose after death and become a Buddha, so it is possible that the mysterious line is lined with spirits who will become Buddhas.
In this sense, the mysterious line may be a stairway to heaven.
The destination of the mysterious row of spirits is unknown.
The final destination of the spirits in the mysterious line has not been revealed until episode 37 of Mieruko-chan. The ghosts in the mysterious line are always eaten by the ghosts waiting at the end of the line, but where the eaten ghosts go afterwards is unknown. If the mysterious line is lined up with spirits who will become Buddhas, the final destination may be heaven.
