Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun Anime Set for Reboot
Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun is an anime series that first aired in 2020 and had a total of 12 episodes. However, the decision has been made to reboot the series in order to faithfully adapt the original source material, the manga.
The goal is to provide a more accurate and possibly even improved production for the reboot. As of now, it is unclear whether the original animation studio, Lerche, will return to handle the production of the reboot.
During its initial run, the anime gained popularity and became the second most popular series of the Winter 2020 season, ranking just below Haikyuu! Season 4. Despite some criticism for leaving out parts from the manga, the anime was generally well-received by viewers.
It even won the Best Character Design award at the 2021 Crunchyroll Awards and was named Anime of the Season (Winter 2020) at the 2020 Anime Trending Awards. Additionally, it secured the 4th place spot at the 2020 Anime of the Year Awards at Anime Corner.
