This year's October issue of GFantasy announced a television anime adaptation of HERO and Daisuke Hagiwara's Horimiya manga on Wednesday. Aniplex simultaneously opened an official website, revealing the main staff, cast, and a teaser visual (pictured). The anime series will begin airing in January 2021.

Staff
Director: Masashi Ishihama (Persona 5 the Animation, Shinsekai yori)
Series Composition, Script: Takao Yoshioka (Working'!!, Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet)
Character Design: Haruko Iizuka (Inu x Boku SS, Little Busters!)
Music: Masaru Yokoyama (Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (TV), Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso)
Studio: CloverWorks (Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai, Sora no Aosa wo Shiru Hito yo)

Haruka Tomatsu (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) and Kouki Uchiyama (Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda.) are starring as the lead characters Kyouko Hori and Izumi Miyamura, respectively.

Synopsis
Although admired at school for her amiability and academic prowess, high school student Kyouko Hori has been hiding another side of her. With her parents often away from home due to work, Hori has to look after her younger brother and do the housework, leaving no chance to socialize away from school.

Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a brooding, glasses-wearing otaku. However, in reality, he is a gentle person inept at studying. Furthermore, he has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder.

By sheer chance, Hori and Miyamura cross paths outside of school—neither looking as the other expects. These seemingly polar opposites become friends, sharing with each other a side they have never shown to anyone else. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Hagiwara began drawing Horimiya based on HERO's original 4-koma romantic comedy manga in GFantasy in October 2011, retelling the original story in standard manga format with an updated art style. Square Enix published the 15th volume on Wednesday. Yen Press licensed the manga in English in March 2015 and shipped the 14th volume on July 21. The manga has also been published in multiple foreign languages, including Spanish, Polish, and Indonesian. Horimiya has a cumulative 5.7 million copies of its volumes in circulation.

HERO launched the original manga on her official website Dokkai Ahen in February 2007. Square Enix acquired the series for official release the following year and published the tenth and final volume in December 2011. HERO subsequently continued the manga with side stories and irregularly posts them on the website. Square Enix compiles the chapters for physical publication through its Gangan Comics Online imprint and released the 14th volume on Wednesday.

Hoods Entertainment adapted the original manga into two original video anime episodes in September 2012 and March 2014. The third episode was produced in March 2015 by independent studio Marone, established by the anime's general producer Tarou Yamada. The fourth and latest episode by Gonzo was released in December 2018.

Yes, YES, YEESSSSS!!!!!

Official word is finally out! Super duper happy, quite clearly as such.

Manga has fallen into the filler-ish zone but the first 50 chapters or so were absolutely top-notch and here's to hoping the Staff and Cast can pull it off. Admittedly not the finest Staff but I've faith in them.

Edit: Pardon my little out-of-character display at the start above. I'm just really excited for this!

People often ask in discussions which anime deserves a full-fledged cour or two episodes of an adaption, and I can guarantee that Horimiya has come each and every time sealing one of the top 3 spots or so. That's how good the first 50 or so chapters were! Of course, I'll try to keep my expectations in check and consider this not necessarily the same entry but you bet I'll be critical if this fails xD.

Anyway, Winter 2021 just got so much with this! Bloody looking forward to the PV that's about to drop on Monday! If only it was up on NicoNico or YT instead of Abema -_- But well, I'll be surfing around twitter for the most bit so hopefully I'll be able to keep up with the announcements and such.

This seems like a reverse harem or some shit. Regardless, not much excited.

Damm, only took them 9 years to come with this announcement.
That manga finally got an adaptation after 10 years!

Weird it took this long to something that was really popular and well criticized.

A-1 Pict-- I mean, Cloverworks eh? I do not mind at all. The studio always excels at romance anime so I have 100% faith that this adaptation will turn out good xD

Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen this manga before. Although, I only read it for a few chapters since I don't read mangas anymore.

Reverse harem? How'd you even come to that conclusion? It's literally just one guy and one girl on the cover. I don't see one girl and 4 guys.......

Finally! Great news. I planned to read this manga few years ago. I must read it. This adaptation would be successful IMO.

You know I'm pretty surprised it took this long before Horimiya got an anime considering how popular it's been for ages now

I scared my dog by screaming OH SHIT when I saw this announcement.
FUCK yes.
Still waiting on a romance involving a tomboy yandere. Or really any romance where the yandere wins and starts to de-yandere as her love is reciprocated.

Also, I despise runny eggs and anime chins that are sharp enough to alert the TSA.

'My biggest gripe is with Hori -- she used to be a great character. Responsible, kind, friendly, caring -- and she turns into this abusive sadistic jealous-nightmare tsundere'

I never thought this would happen.

A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

Now I can only hope for a Takane and Hana adaption(I know the manga's end[ing/ed], but stranger things have happened)

Are you sure they didn't misinterpret the text, I think it would be best to give it a shot and see for yourself rather than checking MAL reviews, or reviews in general

Finally. Been waiting a long time for this. Although the manga isn't as good as it used to be, the anime will definitely adapt the beginning good chapters of the manga which is hype. I can't wait :)

Still can't believe this is real!

Horimiya (chapter 1-63) is peak fluff SoL and nothing comes to close

Ok things do come close but this is S tier anyways

I have read the manga long enough to tell you I am not looking forward to this and probably not watching.

Well if you haven't read it I guess the adaption is going to use the good chapters before it turns bad so I think is fine.
I can talk spanish, english, japanese and can read a bit of french, italian and portuguese so take that in account if you ask me where I read that from. For other languages that I want to read the continuation but is not available in the languages prior mentioned I use a dictionary.

She never becomes anything like that. It was just acting and shit she was just playing around. It wasn't anything serious like a complete character revamp. Also basing what you'll watch on MAL reviews won't really help much because a lot of people are either just hating on the show or failed to understand shit about the show. There are only sometimes where a show is actually reviewed critically with fairness and no forced bias.

Yeah I really feel like the anime should end on the winter scene because after that it became decent/good from really good but I kinda still like the manga although they could've gone a different way about it.
