Earlier today, the official Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun (Jibaku Shōnen Hanako-kun) anime website updated with a new key visual, as well as the main staffers attached to the project. We break the details down below.
The image features the interior of Hanako-kun’s bathroom, as he peeks out from the third stall.
Masaomi Ando (School-Live!, Astra Lost in Space) will direct the project at Lerche, with Mayuka Itou providing character designs. Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) is in charge of series composition and writing the screenplay.
Yuji Higa is attached as a producer.
Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun will air in 2020. The series is slated to run for twelve episodes.
AidaIro’s Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun manga launched in the pages of Square Enix’s Monthly G’s Fantasy magazine in 2014. The ongoing series spans ten volumes, with volume 11 slated to ship to stores on August 27.
Yen Press currently publishes Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun in North America, which they describe as:
“Hanako-san, Hanako-san…are you there?” At Kamome Academy, rumors abound about the school’s Seven Mysteries, one of which is Hanako-san. Said to occupy the third stall of the third floor girls’ bathroom in the old school building, Hanako-san grants any wish when summoned. Nene Yashiro, an occult-loving high school girl who dreams of romance, ventures into this haunted bathroom…but the Hanako-san she meets there is nothing like she imagined! Kamome Academy’s Hanako-san…is a boy!
