Toilet-Bound Hanako Kun (Japanese 地縛少年花子くん) is a Japanese manga series by Aidalro. It was serialized in Square Enix’s shonen manga magazine called Monthly GFantasy. It has been there ever since 2014. It has further, also been collected in seventeen tankobon volumes as per the statistics in February 2022. In North America, the manga is being licensed by Yen Press. Later, the manga series was also adapted into an anime series by Lerche. It aired from January to March 2020.
The series Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun follows the story of Hanako, an urban legend who is said to be the spirit of a young girl who haunts school toilets, but she is later discovered by Nene. Hanako is a young boy who is one of many spirits who inhabit the area. Justin Briner, Tyson Rinehart, and Megumi Ogata star in the anime series Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun. Iro Aida, Yasuhiro Nakanishi, and Leah Clark created the series Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun. Masaomi Ando, Yasuyuki Fuse, Yoshito Nishoji, Yoshihide Yuzumi, Yohei Fukui, Imamura, Sakurako Mitsuhashi, and Michita Shiraishi directed it.
It is regarded as one of the best anime among the recent ones released. It has just twelve episodes in the first season as well, which makes it very easy to get into it and enjoy it thoroughly. Toilet-bound Hanako-Kun was impressive for the majority of its run. Or, at the very least, it really did my expectations. One thing I have to give this show credit for was its ability to create an atmosphere that was both fun, silly, and lighthearted, as well as terrifying at times.
This show was, at its core, a comedy, and a good one at that. Toilet-bound Hanako-Kun had a lot of visual, reactionary, and goofy humor that made me laugh a lot. So, yeah, this series was a breeze, however, Hanako-Kun, who was toilet-bound, had no qualms about displaying some gruesome imagery. This was not a risk-free anime. This show featured numerous depictions of the dilapidated, grotesque, and macabre. Even in the tensest moments of this series, a character would crack a joke or make a face that was pretty damn funny, without undermining the sense of dread and peril.
Toilet-Bound Hanako Kun Season 2 Release Date
For the second season, we do not have any official confirmation yet, however, it is being said that we can get it in mid-2023.
There is a good chance that Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun Season 2 will be announced. We anticipate that Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun will be renewed for a second season soon. Let’s wait and see what happens next. It is highly likely that there will be a second season because the first season only adapted seven volumes of the original manga, however, it now has more than 60 volumes published with many more to come.
This means that now we have more than enough content for the upcoming season as well. Considering the popularity of the manga, we may get more than one season as well, as fans are eagerly waiting for it. We are most likely to get a second season of Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun, but we don’t know the details of when and where yet.
We will post any other updates or news about the second season of Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun here.

Toilet-Bound Hanako Kun Season 2 Story
Kamome Academy is very prominent for all the rumors that entail the atmosphere there. At Kamome Academy, there is a legend. Rumors circulate about the school’s enigmatic Seven Wonders. The most famous of these stories is Hanako- san’s. According to legend, if a person knocks three times on the door of the last stall in the girl’s bathroom, Hanako-san will appear and grant a wish for a price. Nene Yashiro (voiced by Akari Kitou) tries desperately to summon Hanako-san. To her surprise, the rumors are not only true, but they do not even begin to cover the entire story. It turns out that the ghost Hanako (voiced by Megumi Ogata) is the leader of the Kamome Academy Seven Wonders and is in charge of keeping the peace between the living and the dead worlds.
The spirit world’s state of balance has recently been thrown into disarray. Hanako and Nene must investigate the source of these disturbances with the assistance of amateur exorcist Kou Minamoto (voiced by Shouya Chiba).
