The April 2019 issue of Square Enix's GFantasy magazine announced a TV anime adaptation of Iro Aida's Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun (Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun) manga on Monday.

Synopsis
"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! (Source: Yen Press)

The comedy supernatural manga began its serialization in GFantasy in June 2014, which has nine volumes in print as of October 2018. Square Enix plans to publish the tenth volume on March 27. Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun has a cumulative 1.5 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation.

Yen Press licensed the manga in English in July 2017 for digital release and published the ninth volume on January 29.

Why not?

Where do you see the trap? Hanako-kun (pictured on cover) is a ghost boy wearing gakuran.

A fine choice for an anime adaptaion. I think many will enjoy this supernatural, comedic, dark, romantic, work of fiction. I eagerly await this one.

Hope it's more of a shounen and less of a shoujo.

From what i have heard from other readers this series is quite good.
