Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun - Recommendations

Alt title: Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun

If you're looking for anime similar to Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun, you might like these titles.

Noragami

Noragami

Yato, the supposed God of Calamity, is so far down on the Shinto totem pole that he doesn't even have any followers or a shrine to call his own and has to do odd jobs to make ends meet. Worst of all, his aloof and somewhat goofy personality has just cost him his newest partner and best holy weapon. When the down-on-his-luck Yato is saved by an unfortunate soul called Hiyori, he's forced to take on a brand new job - to turn her back into a human and fix her supernatural out-of-body experiences! Can Yato, a Regalia-less, miserly minor god, even attempt such a tall order? And is there more to him than his ridiculousness lets on?

mikaarin mikaarin says...

Both shows revolve around a human girl being involved in some madness going over japanese ghosts

LamiaNymph LamiaNymph says...

Both series involve a human girl somehow getting involved with the supernatural thanks to encountering a dark haired young man in a unusual way. Eventually a young blonde man down the line as well.

Both series also go over Japanese mythology, folk tales, legends, and ghosts. 

Maddiemouse Maddiemouse says...

Both series are shows about people who end up being pulled into the shenanigans of local spirits through circumstance. However, Noragami has a bit more complex plot compared to Hanako and it abandons comedy for some serious moments.

Both are similar in a way with cute guy spirit making cute girl human into their assistant and then having a third guy in the group and being friends and taking on other spirits! Both are amazing and I love the characters and art direction in both

1. They are both amazing 2. They both have a girl who interacts with ghost and fights and stuff 

Anexistinghuman Anexistinghuman says...

Girl gets attached to a nonhuman-human thingy in some way (in one show, it's a god, in the other it's a ghost).  That's already a fun start!  Plus both shows are very good in their own ways!

LUCIIIII LUCIIIII says...

Both series are about a cute girl meeting a "ghost" boy, and as well as having an third guy in the group.

They are also similar about the japanese folks, myths and stories eventhough,the art style is totally different and the way things are represented too.

Bluebellindy Bluebellindy says...

they both have to do with the supernatural and are really good. also whenever the characters get intense it looks really cool.

Munchk1nn Munchk1nn says...

These animes both have supernatural interactions and fun stories. Tanjiro and Hanako are both trying to beat the evil side even though their both afraid of doing it so. Tsukasa and Muzan both created a source of evil in a violent way.

These two animes have a lot in common which is why I think their a good match up.  

DarwinsGame DarwinsGame says...

Both feature spirits/demons and a fun loving but determined protagonist who cares about their friends/family. Both feature plenty of humor, though Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun has a lot less action and fighting than Demon Slayer.

On-point art style? Check.

Supernatural? Check.

Amazing characters? Check.

Easy to obsess over? Check.

Both have a heartlifting episodes and an intresting plot related to demons/ghosts etc. Additionally, as of now, they're both one season animes with as few as 26 episodes.

Iloveotters12 Iloveotters12 says...

These two remind me of each other because they both use Japanese folklore. Each episode has a different story of some kind of new spirit the main characters come into contact with.

guerrillagoth guerrillagoth says...

They both have an eeriness about them; a human assistant helping mystical beings; secrets secrets secrets. XXXHolic is a bit more mature, but Hanako has more heart. 

Gavia Gavia says...

If you want more of a human acting as an assistant to a supernatural creature, with elements of Japanese folklore and spirits in the background, look no further. Though their plots are similar, tonally they can be different with XXXHolic leaning more towards philosophical moments, while Hanako going for comedy. Despite that, fans of one should find enjoyment in the other.

Kittyna Kittyna says...

Both are animes about ghost, there is a human that can see a ghost just like in Hanako-kun where is nene x Hanako, also there is someone that can see them cuz of their family just like Kou can. There are also rumors.

So:

-Both have human that did something to see the ghosts,Nene called for hanako in tha bathrooms and That guy looked into a mirror

-In Maiden there is a girl that doesn't like the ghost and she wants to get rid of her at the start and can see her thanks to her family tree just like Kou in anime Hanako kun.

Because both anime shows summoning of a yokai and getting attached by the main character. Both Main Characters of the different anime summons a 'being'. Both this yokai gets attached and thats pretty much how the whole anime goes.

tencolorpen tencolorpen says...

if you liked jibaku no hanako-kun, you'd probably like inuyasha or vice versa.

both series have supernatural/romance/action elements, basically with a young girl with spiritual powers and a supernatural fantasy boy from the past. but inuyasha is more adventure oriented, as they go to many different places, wheras hanako-kun is literally a ghost bound to the girls bathrooms in the school, and so everything takes place there, too. but they both go and fight supernatural monsters that cause chaos. if you like one, check the other out!

Re-Kan!

Re-Kan!

Narumi Inoue has a problem with the new girl in school. It's not that Hibiki Amami is impolite or a bully… it's just that she sees, speaks with, and befriends ghosts! Now, it's at the point that when Amami's around, Inoue sometimes sees them too, spelling disaster for a girl who's terrified of anything supernatural. However, Amami's genuine kindness makes it hard for Inoue to ignore her, especially when her friends Kyoko, Kana, and Makoto, as well as the other students, have accepted Amami's habit of talking to thin air and walking around invisible obstacles. With gentle coaxing (and the knowledge that her departed grandmother is watching over her), Inoue finds herself immersed in Amami's strange, otherworldly adventures. Fulfilling the last wishes of the dead might not be a normal after-school activity, but at least they'll always know why the ghost crossed to the other side in RE-KAN!
