NEW Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun: Hanako w/ Chase Funko Pop
Knock three times on the third stall of the third-floor girls’ bathroom and say, “Hanako-San, are you there?”
The new Funko Pop! Animation: Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun: Hanako With Chase Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure – Hot Topic Exclusive depicts Hanako-Kun, whose real name is Yugi Amane. He is a ghost of a deceased student haunting the old building of Kamome Academy.
At Kamome Academy, there are many rumors about the Seven Mysteries of the school, one of which is Hanako-san.
Believed to occupy the third door of the women’s restroom on the third floor in the old school building, Hanako-san grants any wish when summoned.
Nene Yashiro, a student who loves the occult and dreams of romance, ventures into this haunted toilet… but the Hanako-san she meets is nothing like she imagined! Hanako-san, from Kamome Academy, is a boy!
The Hot Topic exclusive, Hanako With Chase Funko Pop! is coming soon. There’s no release date yet, but stay tuned because I’ll update images and more information once released.
The anime Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun is based on a Japanese urban legend about a ghost that inhabits bathrooms, mainly in schools.
The original story differs from the anime in that Hanako really is a girl, usually wearing a red dress or skirt and a short haircut. Also, she is far from a good figure, as anyone who summons her ends up dying a horrible death.
The legend began circulating in the 1950s when World War II was still plaguing the Japanese.
Some say that she is the spirit of a girl who was killed in an air raid while playing hide and seek. Others that she was killed by a stranger or even an abusive father in the school bathroom.
