Trigger Warning: Mentions of Suicide  

So far, only some parts of Hanako’s past have been revealed in the anime as well as the manga. What we know as of now is that Hanako had been through a lot in his life and that he overall had a really terrible past as a human. Known as Yugi Amane, Hanako died due to unknown reasons. His cause of death so far hasn’t been revealed in the anime as well as the manga. After killing his own twin brother, Yugi Tsukasa, Amane died shortly after at the young age of 13. Later on, after becoming a ghost, Amane took up the name of Hanako and became the seventh mystery of the Kamome Academy.

It has been shown throughout the manga that Hanako still possesses a lot of guilt even after so many years for killing his own brother Tsukasa. Thus, many fans are of the opinion that this guilt might have been too much for Amane to bear, which could have led him to commit suicide. However, one should keep in mind that this is just a theory. As the manga is still in publication, we are sure that the cause of Hanako’s death will be revealed sooner or later. Let’s all hope that our favorite character didn’t have such a tragic end. So, till then, let’s all be patient and enjoy the manga for what it has to offer.
