Make The Exorcist Fall in Love vs Toilet-bound Hanako-kun: Which is the better supernatural romance?

Two popular supernatural romances in recent years are Make The Exorcist Fall in Love and Toilet-bound Hanako-kun. Both series feature unique and memorable characters, heartwarming stories, and plenty of humor. But which series is the better supernatural romance?

Make The Exorcist Fall in Love: A Love That Transcends Worlds

It follows a young exorcist named Boy who is chosen by God to become the world’s strongest exorcist and face off against Satan and the other Demon Lords in a holy war. Burdened with the fate of humanity, all Boy wants to do is quietly bake sweets. However, his life is turned upside down when he meets Imuri, a mysterious girl who has been tasked by Satan to seduce him.

At first, Boy is wary of Imuri and suspects her true motives. However, as they spend more time together, he begins to develop feelings for her. Imuri, too, finds herself falling for Boy despite her original mission. As the holy war rages on, Boy and Imuri must find a way to balance their love for each other with their duties to their respective sides.

In comparison, this manga is more inclined toward religious texts and has a more adult-like feel than Toilet-bound Hanako-kun. There’s a whole lot more trauma that we see the main character unpacking and a whole lot more sins we see unraveling, quite literally.

There are lots of points in the manga that question Boy’s humanity and his steadfastness and being its strongest soldier. It’s a manga where you get confused about whether to laugh or hold a deep psychological debate, but the feeling that wins in the end is to click on the “next chapter” button.

Toilet-bound Hanako-kun: A Supernatural Heartwarmer

It follows Nene Yashiro, a high school girl who summons Hanako-kun, a toilet ghost rumored to grant wishes. However, Hanako-kun instead drags Yashiro into the supernatural world, where she becomes his assistant. Together, they work to solve supernatural mysteries and keep the balance between the human and supernatural worlds.

  • The art in this manga is simply magnificent, down to the smallest details.
  • Compared to Make The Exorcist Fall in Love, it has a more solemn take on dark fantasy.
  • We deal with the concept of ghosts and the afterlife here, which makes it a pretty cute read or watch for Halloween.
  • It feels weepy at some points of the story, especially when Nene and Hanako-kun are kept apart from each other.

There’s also a lot of after-school teenage angst to deal with here, but the mangaka manages to deal with it in a humorous tone.

The Final Verdict
