Decided to create a topic for this series since myself & @Seshi are watching it and it has some elements I see possibly appealing to other members.
The series draws it general idea from an urban legend of the ghost of a girl who haunts a school bathroom. Apparently the legend is common enough in Japan that has been referenced by several previous anime (also can’t help but wonder if Harry Potter’s Moaning Myrtle doesn’t borrow something from it ). But in this situation, Hanako turns out to be a guy. One of the series recurring themes is that the urban legends are altered versions of real events & that by changing how it is retold, it can affect the nature of the spirit/yokai it is based on (good or evil). And apparently someone is purposefully spreading rumors to that end. The current Madoka series deals with s similar topic, but I personally feel this series is doing a better job. The other thing that really stands out about this series it’s distinctive art style and the way it accentuates it’s supernatural theme.
So if you’re interested in supernatural mysteries with some humor & romance, give this one a look
