After Hana and Miko's homeroom teacher goes on maternity leave, they get a new substitute teacher – Zen Tohno. "Mieruko-chan" Episode 10 is set to revolve around Zen and certain mysterious spirits lurking around him. The new episode is titled "Don't Look."

The post-credit scene from Episode 9 hints that the next episode will delve deeper into Zen's identity as Miko sees more creepy spirits around him.

In Episode 9 of "Mieruko-chan" anime, Zen entered the classroom and informed the students Arai was on maternity leave and that he will be the new homeroom teacher for the time being.

The girls instantly liked him and his personality. However, Miko's face froze as she tried hard to avoid the grotesque ghosts floating around him.

She was unable to figure out what was happening as he was surrounded by cat spirits. Meanwhile, Hana told Miko that she had seen Zen somewhere but wasn't able to remember from where. 

Miko asked if she was getting him mixed up with someone else. She wondered if Hana couldn't see the spirits.

Moreover, Miko was sure Zen doesn't remember them. She feared if Hana finally figured where she knew Zen from, it will mean more trouble for her.

Miko decided to keep Hana distracted by taking her to a Halloween party.

"A normal girl was living a normal life until she wasn't. One day, she could see... everything. What's a girl to do when hideous monsters appear no matter which way she turns? And on top of that, nobody else can see them! Obviously, there's only one thing that makes sense-ignore them. Kinda hard to put theory into practice, though, when the ghosts know she's watching," the official synopsis of the manga read as per Yen Press.

The cast of "Mieruko-chan" anime includes Sora Amamiya as Miko Yotsuya, Kaede Hondo as Hana Yurikawa, Ayane Sakura as Yuria Niguredo, Yumiri Hanamori as Kyо̄suke Yotsuya, Ikuko Tani as Godmother and Yūichi Nakamura as Zen Tohno.

"Mieruko-chan" Episode 10 is scheduled for release Sunday. Funimation is streaming the episodes in Japanese with English subtitles.
