Toire no Hanako-san by HAL-2oo6 Toire no Hanako-san by HAL-2oo6
Toire no Hanako-san

A ghost that haunts school bathrooms, according
to Japanese urban legend.

The ubiquitous ghost is sometimes rumored to be
the spirit of a suicide prompted by "ijime," or
bullying, but is also known to just be there,
for no reason.

Hanako-san doesn't seem to really do that
much except scare the hell out of the kids
that need to use the restroom.

Teke Teke is cut in half. But I don't think it's hanako-san either except if she was pulled in the toilet.

Actualy, it is said that if you knock on the thired stall door 3 times and say "hanako san are you there?"
you may get a reply of "yes"
you can run and be safe, but if you open the door you will see a little girl (or young woman, different variations of this legend you know) and she will drown you in the toilet
terrible way to die <:)

She's not hurtful,just playful. Much better then Teke teke,or the slit mouth woman.

I just looked up both those legends, and I have to agree with you. I'll take a ghost that is just playful over any of those two

WICKED! Absolutely fantastic.
I don't know if you've noticed but alot of people use this, or at least a very similar picture, for the legend of Teke-Teke... just thought you'd like to know.

I think scaryforkids.com used your work for a picture of a different Japanese legend, Teke-Teke

I saw that too. Why would they use this image? She clearly has legs and Teke Teke has NO LEGS!!

Does she just haunt the girls water closet or is she willing to cross the hall to the boys water closet?

You seem to put a lot of work into the details of your manipulations. This is but one example. I like your style Hans.

Yes, A little too much, sometimes. I am never
really satisfied, with anything I do. :)

I fully understand that sentiment. I have struggled with that problem for years in other media. I often times don't know when to quit. It can be a curse you know, but you handle it well my friend.

It is so easy to do too much, and that's not good at all.

Seriously, I'm already afraid of the monster in the bathtub (you, know, the one hiding behind the curtains, that's gonna touch your hand when you reach for the toilet paper?), so thanks much, I'll be even more frightened now!!!
