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]

(In my original review I gave Horimiya a 10 but now that I thought about it I changed it into a 9, which I'll explain why in this new updated review)

This updated review is definitely better than ny original one. Yes, this review is 95% based on my enjoyment.

Horimiya is not for everyone so if you disagree with my review then you're obviously free to do so.

I absolutely love Horimiya, the characters, comedy, romance, YOU NAME IT! The casual and simplicity of Horimiya is what makes it special!

I see a lot of people saying that Horimiya is some kind of God of Rom-com ...

Mixed Feelings
(TLDR Review at the bottom, as always, thanks for reading)

I never understood the love for Horimiya.

I am not one to go trash on anything with popularity for the sake of "I'm not like the other girls", well, not now anyway, but Horimiya has genuinely confused me. It has this absurdly large amount of acclamation which has led me to believe that Horimiya is worth my while, or at least when I first came across it. After getting into manga like Horimiya and Horimiya itself, I have come to the conclusion that well, this is more or less, well, "like the other girls" in the medium.

Overall: 7/10
Damn, a lot of big mangas are ending this year with Horimiya, the widely renown rom-com, being one of them. Surprisingly, I never really heard of Horimiya before the anime. After the first episode though, I was interested in seeing how things would play out and binged the manga in one night. And now here I am, watching something cherished by many going out with a bang.

However, I gotta say I don't think Horimiya is as amazing a masterpiece as people make it out to be. Trigger warning, but I actually think it's quite overrated: it's good, but at least in my books, it's ...
