Here are some of the comments from a popular Japanese blog on Mieruko Chan average ratings:

It’s not that there is no such description in the original, but, I’m worried that the toilet scene has been added to the mystery, and if this is the case in one episode, it will be even tighter in the future.

It is different from the original. There is even a toilet scene that is not in the original, which makes me feel uncomfortable. Unpleasant. As for the essential horror, it is not as scary as the original and it is a terrible result.
