Here’s everything fans need to know about Toilet Bound Hanako-kun and the recently announced anime reboot/reboot.
Toilet Bound Hanako-kun announces anime reboot
It was December 22 confirmed that the iconic Toilet Bound Hanako-kun series will receive an anime reboot/reboot.
A brand new teaser trailer was released alongside the announcement, featuring various narrations from various characters from the series, before Hanako-kun herself simply said, “I’m back!”
But fans should note that no information about the format, release window, voice cast or production staff was shared; indicating that the reboot is only in extremely early stages of production.
MyAnimeList describes the series as:
“Rumors of the supernatural overtook Kamome Academy, namely the ‘Seven Mysteries.’ any wish the summoner desires First-year high school student Nene Yashiro boldly summons Hanako-san in desperate need of love, but the Hanako who appears before her is a boy!
After Hanako-kun claims that he has no magical consumables, Nene tries different ways to get noticed by her crush. When her desperation reaches its peak, she runs into trouble after eating a mermaid scale, which turns her into a fish. Hanako-kun rescues her, tying their fates together in the process; in return for this help, Nene must become his assistant. Now entangled in the supernatural realm, Nene soon discovers that there is much more to the school’s seven mysteries than basic rumours.” – Toilet Bound Hanako-kun, via MyAnimeList.
