About Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun

Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun is an ongoing Japanese Manga series about the supernatural and the famous high-school rumors of “seven wonders”. The series features the titular Hanako-Kun, an urban legend of a spirit that’s said to haunt Japanese school toilets.

To summon him, one must enter the girl’s bathroom, knock three times, and ask if “Hanako-Kun is there.” In the anime series, Yashiro Nene gets what she bargained for when she summons the spirit, only to realize he’s nothing like the urban legend. The two become fast friends, and Hanako helps her destroy spirits and fix the deteriorating rumors going on about spirits, all in the name of bringing equilibrium back to the spirit and human world.

Aida launched the spin-off manga After-School Boy Hanako-Kun in Pixiv Comic in February 2018 and ended it with the 25th chapter in October 2021. Square Enix published one compiled book volume for the manga in August 2019. Yen Press published the volume in English in April 2021.
