Yen Press announced that it will be releasing individual digital chapters of the manga series Toilet-bound Hanako-kun simultaneously with Japan. This popular supernatural comedy is a bestselling manga by AidaIro, which received an anime adaptation in January 2020. Yen Press is publishing the manga in English, with Volumes 0-18 currently available. Yen Press has released Toilet-bound Hanako-kun as digital volumes prior to their print editions, and through digital serial chapter releases, fans will be able to read more of this beloved series sooner and more frequently.

­­Yen Press is a joint venture between Kadokawa Corporation and Hachette Book Group. Founded in 2006, Yen Press has quickly risen to become one of the largest and most prolific publishers of manga and original graphic novels in the North American marketplace and a driving force in the introduction of light novels and Japanese literature to new readers through its Yen On and Yen Audio imprints.

“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!

Toilet-bound Hanako-kun, Chapters 92–95 will be available on March 7th exclusively on digital platforms, such as BOOK☆WALKER Global.

Toilet-bound Hanako-kun is the latest addition to the Yen Press lineup of digital simulpublication manga series, a program that includes some of today’s most popular series, such as Black Butler, Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler -, and Goblin Slayer. Alongside the Toilet-bound Hanako-kun 2023 anime project “restart” announced by TBS Animation in December 2022, Yen Press will be releasing the Toilet-bound Hanako-kun: First Stall box set in May 2023, containing the first ten volumes of the manga.
