Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun Review — C

A girl meets the boy who haunts the girl’s bathroom.

First of all, the animation style is unique and I quite liked it! It’s very colorful and interesting, it feels like a lot is going on.

I like the direction it takes too, with the twist on the usual ghost stories. I especially appreciated the main character’s love life. Very realistic.

But, after the first few episodes, it bored me. I think part of it may have been it was constantly chipper and happy even when awful things were happening. It was a bit tiring to be honest. Whatever the case, it didn’t grab my interest and it was a challenge to pay attention fully.

  • Storytelling – D – Cool story but the telling is lacking.
  • Voice – B – Love the visual style!
  • Characters – C – They’re fine.
  • Attention Grab – D – Really could not keep my interest.
  • Production – B – Looks good.
  • Overall – C
