There are rumors that one of Kamome Academy's Seven Mysteries, Hanako-kun, has gained an assistant: first-year high school student Nene Yashiro. Together, Hanako and Yashiro investigate the school's many mysteries, keeping the balance between humans and the supernatural. But in their free time, the two can often be found goofing off, engaging in various antics involving Yashiro's schoolmates and the lurking spectral entities that normal people cannot see.

On the one hand, I'm surprised that we actually got an adaptation of After School Hanako (ASH). On the other hand, I'm confused about the timing, since nothing of Hanako came in animated form for years and now this appeared just before the release of the second season / remake (?). Although I'm not complaining about that. The adaptation of ASH is actually really well done for such a mini-series. ASH consists of funny little short stories from Toilet Bound Hanako-Kun. Each episode of the anime consists of 2 chapters and therefore 2 stories. They don't give any further in-depth impression of the world or ...

Here is my review of this anime in 2023!

Story (8)
The story is the continuation of the series it's only showing several scenes that are not included in the main story. The duration of the videos is short and it's engaging. A lot of comedy scenes in this side series.

Art (10)
The art in this anime is excellence! I like the color, glow, and shadow they were using for this anime. They also use a lot of animation than the static image which makes it more enjoyable to watch.

Sound (10)
All the sounds that they used were suitable and adjusted to the animation.

Mixed Feelings
What can I say other than... it was just okay? It's fine if you've got nothing better to do and want to see a few little extra omake-like bits for the original hanako, but honestly most of the humor was lost on me. Very quick and short little bits that mainly revolve around the little mokke, sometimes a little of something else. All it really did was make me miss the first season and wish for more story again.

Either way. Art is on point. Seeing the characters you miss is great. But you're not missing anything important or all that fun anyways. At least the ...
