This is especially true of the second floor restroom where the ghost Hanako appears. Supposedly, Hanako is the ghost of a girl who was brutally murdered while looking for her mother. Students believe that if they see Hanako, they will soon die. Satomi discovers that many students have disappeared over the years and it seems to have something to do with the Shinto temple on the edge of the school grounds.
