Legend has it that a ghost resides in the third stall of the third-floor girls' bathroom in the old school building. If you knock three times, you can summon the ghost, which will grant wishes though it will demand something in return. Student Nene Yashiro decides to take the risk in order to jumpstart her dormant love life. One would think that since this is a girl's restroom this would likewise be the ghost of a female student, but Nene finds that is not exactly the case.

Well, the artwork in this series is very colorful. The premise is amusing, but I can't help feeling that apart from that there isn't all that much that is novel and original about this show. Nene almost winds up as a mermaid and is (mostly) saved my Hanako in exchange for her having to serve as his assistant. But the jokes don't seem to be LOL funny, and there doesn't seem to be all that much of a plot to follow instead. The 'one student comes from a long line of exorcists' bit in episode two seemed all too familiar. And Hanako himself strikes me as a kind of mean person who I don't really like. I wish this show was a little better because there are some things I like about it, but nothing can change the fact that I felt vaguely bored while watching. Maybe people who are more into the occult would enjoy it more than I did. Perhaps my problem with this show is that it seems to be trying to scare us more than make us laugh. I struggled through a third episode but it only convinced me that my first impressions had been correct and I should drop this anime from my viewing schedule.
