The manga, which is published in English by Yen Press, provides the following narrative:
“At first glance, the ultra-popular Hori-san seems like a frivolous high school girl, but in reality, she’s plain, pragmatic, and family-oriented. On the other hand, the bespectacled Miyamura-kun comes across as an average, gloomy high school fanboy, but he’s actually an attractive young man who has a bad-boy streak and is covered in piercings and tattoos. When these two unexpectedly similar classmates have a random run-in outside of the classroom, a bubbly, sweet tale of school life begins!”
Daisuke Hagiwara kickstarted the Horimiya manga in 2011 within the pages of Square Enix’s Monthly G Fantasy magazine. Serving as an adaptation of HERO’s Hori-san to Miyamura-kun four-panel school comedy manga, the series concluded its run in March 2021 under the supervision of HERO. Square Enix took charge of publishing the manga’s 16th and final compiled volume in July 2021, while Yen Press will release the 16th volume on May 23. To provide a satisfying conclusion, Hagiwara crafted an epilogue chapter for the manga in July 2021.
This manga venture sparked the creation of a television anime, which made its debut in Japan in February 2021. Funimation took up the mantle of streaming the anime series as it aired, presenting both the original Japanese version and an English dubbed version for fans to enjoy.
