Here is everything we know about Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2.
Jibaku Shounen Hanako-Kun, otherwise known as Toilet Bound Hanako Kun, is one of the many shounen anime that falls under the supernatural genre. This anime is based on the famous ‘Seven Wonders’, the legendary urban legends that most schools in Japan have. One of the Seven Wonders is Hanako-san, which is the tale that is rumored to be the ghost of a young girl who haunts the school’s bathroom.
The anime series is adapted from a manga under the same title that is written and illustrated by Iro Aida. Published by Square Enix, the manga series has been running since July 2014 in the monthly magazine GFantasy. The manga series comes with a special volume entitled Volume 0, which contains pilot chapters of Toilet Bound Hanako Kun before it has been serialized, and Iro Aida’s debut one-shot, Dear My Living Dead. Now, the majority of fans outside Japan can already enjoy the manga series, as the English version has been published digitally by Yen Press since August 29, 2017.
When will Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2 be released?
The first season of the anime adaptation Toilet Bound Hanako Kun is produced by Lerche, the studio that is best known for Assassination Classroom, Danganronpa, and Classroom of the Elite. It was first aired on January 10, 2020, before finally concluding with 12 episodes on March 27 of the same year. After the first season has ended, many of the fans are craving for Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2. So, when will Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2 be released?
As of now, there is no information regarding the release date of Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2, but it is possible for the anime series to receive a second season. The reason is that the source material is enough for a season renewal, as the anime has only covered the first 36 chapters of the manga, while the manga itself is currently sitting at the 80th chapter. However, despite the numbers being theoretically sufficient, we will have to wait for a bit longer in order to create room for the manga to run more, probably until 100+ chapters, to avoid the lack of source material.
One thing to take note of is that the anime series skipped some chapters of the source and changes the order of the manga. Several arcs were skipped and made the arcs on the anime faster-paced. In respect, the last episode of the first season seems to have a heartfelt ending that doesn’t really need a continuation, to begin with.
Although the chances are low, it would be possible for us to receive Toilet Bound Hanako Kun Season 2 in the future, but not anytime soon.
