On the surface, the thought of Kyouko Hori and Izumi Miyamura getting along would be the last thing in people's minds. After all, Hori has a perfect combination of beauty and brains, while Miyamura appears meek and distant to his fellow classmates. However, a fateful meeting between the two lays both of their hidden selves bare. Even though she is popular at school, Hori has little time to socialize with her friends due to housework. On the other hand, Miyamura lives under the noses of his peers, his body bearing secret tattoos and piercings that make him look like a gentle delinquent.

Having opposite personalities yet sharing odd similarities, the two quickly become friends and often spend time together in Hori's home. As they both emerge from their shells, they share with each other a side of themselves concealed from the outside world.

Currently having a "no romance, why" crisis in my life right now after I have finished watching Horimiya. There was not a single episode or scene I could complain about. It was perfect. The characters, the story, the voiceovers, the set-up—it was just just perfect. I have a withdrawal symptom now. I wanted to see more of Yuki and Toru though.
Wholesome and warm are understatements. The animation, art, and settings are superb. Subtle facial animation. No tropes, no dragging out the relationship—just two people meet-cute and falling in love. Neither is set up as an audience stand-in, which is refreshing. One of my favorite parts ...

Mixed Feelings
I was really looking forward to this anime, especially since it was so positively received by the anime community on TikTok, but unfortunately it falls short in critical areas, namely: pacing, storytelling, and the overall anime direction.

I'm a big fan of the manga. That being said, I'm not usually one to tout the source material to say it's always better than the adaptation. In many cases, I actually prefer the anime over the manga because there are certain scenes that are just better animated, like fight scenes which can get pretty confusing in black and white panels. Animes also have the unique opportunity to fix ...

Everyone seemed to like this show for some reason, so I decided to watch it too. Little did I know, I was going to end up hating the main girl SO MUCH. I seriously liked EVERY CHARACTER except.. THE MAIN CHARACTER! HORI. She was so annoying, I didn’t like her personality at all. She was so selfish and controlling, treated everyone like crap and only kind to the male lead. And when you watch an anime you need to like the main character or else the show will be very painful to watch.
It’s a pretty basic shoujo story - and there’s nothing wrong with ...
