This is the fourth volume of 地縛少年花子くん. The First volume was read as part of the Beginner Book club. You can find the original post for the book club here:
This isn’t exactly an official off-shoot club, more like a relaxed thread where people who decide to continue the series can discuss and ask question on the book. There is no strict schedule so feel free to drop by anytime you want and read at your own pace!
The Story So Far
Yashiro Nene walked into the girl’s toilet in the old school building one day hoping to summon the ghost of a girl called Hanako who is rumored to grant any wish you ask for. To her surprise it turns out Hanako is actually a boy?! Through some mischief Hanako and Yashiro are now bound together by a curse of a mermaid. If Yashiro gets wet, she begins to develop fishy properties
Volume 3 introduced a new school mystery of kamome gakuen. The 5th school mystery 16時の書庫, also known as tsuchigomori sensei. When Nene receives a hint from a mysterious girl, she wanders into the 5th’s domain. There she find out that the 5th is actually a teacher at the school?!! And also that he’s a spider??!!
In the library, she discovers that the books contain information about the student’s future among other things. After viewing her own book and feeling disheartened, events lead our group of Hanako, Kou, and Nene to split up, with Nene going along with Tsuchigomori to destroy his Yorishiro.
As the Yorishiro is destroyed, Nene learns about events that happened years ago between Tsuchigomori sensei and a little boy who managed to change his future. A boy called 柚木普（Yugi Amane). A boy who would never go anywhere, and who would later kill someone and become the seventh school mystery Hanako-san.
Finally, as the volume comes to a close, Kou and Nene cook Hanako’s favorite food, doughnuts, but just as Nene and Hanako are about to enjoy the snack, a black crane interrupts, and the mysterious victim from Amane’s past is finally revealed?! What a cliffhanger!!
In this volume look through the viewfinder and take a picture as you cry your heart out as we head into the next major arc!
