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.

Real quick: I haven’t read the manga (and, honestly, I’m not sure that I will but more on this later) so I’m going into this with the perspective of an anime-only.

All I have to say about the romance is that it’s fluffy. Sure, it could get a little cliché but there’s nothing wrong with that. I ended up really loving the themes because they were, at some point in my life, something I struggled with or am still struggling with. To a degree, it is realistic.

The characters are one of the best aspects of the anime. Have we seen these character archetypes before? Yeah, but ...

Mixed Feelings
I will give this anime 6/10 (Fine) for a school/romance themed anime.

Romance: 5/10 (Average). I mean, it is there, you will get main characters being in love, mundane high school romance. You will empathise with the main characters only if you are lacking romantic interactions in real life.

Characters: 5/10 (Average). Characters do not develop during the plot. All male characters have nearly identical personalities, only their crushes are different.

Plot: 6/10 (Fine). It doesn't really have a plot. You are rather presented with a handful of funny situations the main characters will find themselves in. Some of them are actually fun to watch, but nothing ...

Title: Horimiya


I watched Horimiya because of the many positive reviews. Therefore, I went in with relatively high expectations. UNFORTUNATELY, these were not met in any way. Both the plot and the characters barely convinced me. It was just a copy and paste of other romance animes like Toradora or Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun.

Again, we have a tsundere girl who becomes aggressive towards the male main character. The girl is a super genius, popular, and desirable, while the boy is just average, unattractive, and without friends. Both fall in love with each other within a short time. They didn’t have any past together either. Very contradictory is ...
