Astra Lost in Space's Masaomi Andō directs 2020 series

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Iro Aida's Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun (Jibaku Shōnen Hanako-kun) manga revealed more staff details and a visual for the series on Saturday.

Masaomi Andō (Astra Lost in Space, School-Live!, Hakumei and Mikochi) is directing the anime at Lerche (School-Live!, Scum's Wish, Kino's Journey - The Beautiful World). Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Carole & Tuesday, Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, BanG Dream!) is both overseeing and writing the series scripts. Mayuka Itou (chief animation director for Hakumei and Mikochi) is designing the characters, and Yūji Higa is the animation producer.

The anime will premiere in 2020 on TBS, SUN, CBC, and BS-TBS, and will have 12 episodes.

Yen Press is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:

"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!

Aida launched the manga in G Fantasy in 2014. Square Enix published the manga's 10th compiled book volume on March 27, and will release the 11th volume on August 27. Yen Press published the ninth volume digitally on January 29.
