Anzai spoke about the series, saying she was “captivated by the world” of the original manga and while reading, she “remembered the sensation of excitement of childhood.” Mizushima commented that he wanted to play the role of Natsuhiko “happily.”
Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun is currently being serialized in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine. Yen Press releases the English version of the manga series, the synopsis of the first volume reads:
"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!
