Synopsis

The famous "Seven Wonders" that every school seems to have are a staple of Japanese urban legends. One of the most well-known of these tales is that of Hanako-san: the ghost of a young girl who haunts the school's bathrooms.

Kamome Academy has its own version of Hanako-san's legend. Rumors claim that if one successfully manages to summon Hanako-san, she will grant her summoner any wish. Lured by the gossip, many people have tried to call upon her, yet every attempt has failed. However, when Nene Yashiro, a girl hoping for romantic fortune, dares to summon Hanako-san, she discovers that the rumored "girl" is actually a boy!

After a series of unfortunate events involving Nene's romantic desires, she is unwillingly entangled in the world of the supernatural, becoming Hanako-kun's assistant. Soon, she finds out about Hanako-kun's lesser-known duty: maintaining the fragile balance between mortals and apparitions.

With all the negative news about the coronavirus going on this year, I figured there’s bound to be at least one or more shows to relax and indulge myself in. When I saw the English version of the title, it reminded me that people have been hoarding toilet paper. But upon finishing this supernatural gem, I found myself eager for more. Sometimes in life there comes a surprise that hits you out of nowhere. Sometimes, there’s a show out there that doesn’t seem what meets the eye. And to say that in a positive light, it’s something we need about now.

Mind me, this is a biased review, so you may not agree with what rating I gave this. Although, I will talk about why this anime, in my eyes, is a masterpiece, so at least take the time to read it.

At first glance, Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun seems like a normal comedy show, but when I started watching it, I was amazed. It is actually really funny, but it does have a lot of cool character writing as well. When you see the word 'toilet' in the title of an anime you may be inclined to think it's odd, but this is entirely wrong.

No doubt, the thing that probably caught the eye of many of us towards this show was that art style. It looked unique, stylish and intriguing. That is certainly how I felt when seeing this show. Now an anime or manga would use this as a launch point to get people into your world and story that you are trying to tell. What we get a show that carries that unique art style and expands on it into something I didn’t think I would enjoy this much.

Sit back relax, knock on the bathroom door and say “Hanako-san, Hanako-san, are you there?” As I present read more

Story:
At Kanome high school lives Hanako-kun. He’s a wish granter to anyone who visits his stall in the girls bathroom, he is also one of the seven wonders who has to maintain order between humans and apparitions. To help him he got his boycrazy assistant Yashiro Nene and the half-arsed exorcist Minamoto Kou.

An interesting premise for sure that while not the most unique in all aspects felt relatively fresh. But my positive first impression didn’t last that long as it started doing one of the most sinful things I know, it messed up the tone. In one read more
