Within everyone there exists a side preferably kept hidden, even from close friends. For the smart and popular Kyouko Hori, it’s the fact that she has to do all the housework and care for her little brother, Souta, because of her parents' busy work schedules. For the gentle Izumi Miyamura, whom everybody sees as an otaku, it's his nine hidden piercings and large body tattoo.

So what happens when they accidentally discover each other's hidden sides? Sharing parts of themselves that they couldn't with anyone else, strong bonds of friendship soon begin to form between Miyamura and Hori, as well as those around them. As their hidden personas start to dissipate, they slowly learn how to open up to others.

"Better art does not mean better anime" that's what I thought after finishing Horimiya.
This is a very short Slice of life, but even if 3 episodes is too short to develop characters, it has a great story, it made me smile because it's pleasant to watch, it's the perfect combo with comedy + romance + friendship !

I don't think there's much to say about this anime, but if you want to take a break and chill in your couch, watch this !

This will be my first review, so go easy on me.

Hori-san to Miyamura-kun, an easygoing great anime.
This anime only has 3 episodes, but you will probably enjoy each and every one of them.
The little romance between the two main characters is great.
The story itself is very simple and easy to understand, great if you just want to relax a bit.

If you want a short little break, try this anime.

Was the art not great? Yes... Did it completely represent the manga? NO, in fact animes hardly ever do... Yet, most people who watched this can come to a conclusion that they enjoyed it. Why is that? Because unlike a lot of those slow fanservice animes that lack a story, this one, although using a simple idea, proved that simplicity can sometimes be the better path to take. The simplicity of the story alone arguably carries this anime. Give it a watch if u have some time. A good anime if you're into romance. When I finish an anime, I tend to ask myself if read more

At initial glance the not a great deal of money was spent on the graphics but I figured to carry on watching for they would not have bothered animating a weak plot. From just watching the first OVA I was intrigued for the originality of Miyamura’s rebelling streak; an angle of rebelliousness and otaku – where they may take it I thought.

They secret relationship makes it awkward to watch but understandable to a person like me who ain’t so great with people face to face. A simple story that lets you in on both main characters thoughts in regards of their relationship/ friendship with read more
