Toilet-bound Hanako-kun Spoilers

Kamome Academy is no ordinary school and is known for having seven mysteries. The most popular mystery out of these is “Hanako-san of the Toilet”, a ghost girl who resides in the third-floor bathroom. They say that she has the ability to grant wishes and after learning this, Yashiro Nene, a first-year girl, decides to visit the bathroom cubicle to get her own wish granted. To her surprise, Hanako-San actually turns out to be a boy. Soon she realizes that there’s no way he can help her and simply lacks the ability to grant the wishes of humans.

She later comes across mermaid scales and when she gets to know that these can be used for match-making, she swallows one scale and takes the other one to her crush. But when she realizes that her crush likes someone else, she is forced to drop the idea. With no one to share the mermaid’s curse with, she herself turns into a fish and is enslaved by the mermaid. But before the mermaid can come and capture her, Hanako takes it upon himself to defeat the mermaid. To reduce the effect of the curse, Hanako decides to eat the other scale. With this, Yashiro’s curse is temporarily lifted and she only turns into a fish when she’s in contact with water.

As the series proceeds further with each episode, new ghosts, urban legends, and fantasy elements are introduced to the storyline. And all of these elements affect the lives of the main characters in one way or the other. In recent episodes, another primary character named Minamoto runs into a young boy’s ghost that looks like a girl. The rumors surrounding this ghost suggest that it is evil but when Minamoto talks to him, he realizes that he was in the same class as him back in the first year. Back when he was alive, he would never get anyone’s attention at school so he now tries to scare people just to be known and remembered by them.
