Hanako-kun Anime

Yen Press has brought the spinoff manga to English readers, providing a vivid glimpse into the lives of the supernatural duo, Hanako-kun and Nene Yashiro, when they finally catch a breather from their constant ghostly investigations at Kamome Academy. While typically tasked with resolving otherworldly mysteries, join them as they embark on laid-back after-school adventures!

Originally serialized on pixiv Comic starting in February 2018, and concluding with its 25th chapter in October 2021, this manga by Aida offers fans a delightful respite from the usual ghostly affairs. Square Enix published a single compiled volume in August 2019, which Yen Press thoughtfully translated into English in April 2021.

Moreover, exciting news has emerged about the revival of the television anime adaptation of Iro Aida’s Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun (Jibaku Shōnen Hanako-kun) manga. After initially premiering in Japan in January 2020 with a 12-episode run, the anime project is gearing up for a fresh start. Funimation has been providing English-speaking audiences the opportunity to enjoy the series through both dubbing and subtitles.

For those who prefer digital reading, Yen Press is making the original manga available in digital format. The story of Hanako-san, the enigmatic apparition who allegedly grants wishes when summoned from the third stall of the third-floor girls’ bathroom in Kamome Academy’s old building, continues to captivate readers. However, the twist is that the Hanako-san Nene Yashiro encounters is nothing like the one she envisioned—it’s a boy! This captivating tale, which began in Square Enix’s G Fantasy magazine in 2014, remains an enduring favorite, with the 18th compiled volume released on July 18 by Yen Press.
