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]

Horimiya is a manga that I found occasionally, and seeing just the art, I found it very interesting and showy. Reading the synopsis already came to my mind "romance in sight", so I decided to deepen into the history of manga, and finally I ended up having good hours of entertainment by reading this great show. All content posted here is my opinion about the plot, I hope you enjoy reading.

Horimiya has a simple yet enjoyable story. I say simple in terms easy to be understood, and not be common. In fact, so far, I'm finding the development of history quite interesting, doesn't evolve very read more

Horimiya is the shining light amongst the excessive flood of rehashed high school romances that Japan loves to print out. But what makes this manga so special? It has the same cliché scenario, after all: a popular female lead, a shut-in otaku male lead, high school setting; the list goes on and on. The premise may be unoriginal, but Horimiya excels greatly in the one aspect that most romances fail to deliver.

Intimacy.

The amount of intimacy that can be felt between our two lovers, Hori-san and Miyamura-kun, never ceases to amaze me. Unlike most romances, their love for each other never feels forced. HERO does a read more

Before you decide my review is already too biased what with the perfect marks. . Do read this review and try the manga out first.

Story: 10/10. Classic romcom story with nice, subtle changes.
Horimiya is, undeniably, a high school romance comedy. It's not something that can be argued about. Thus, you can predict the general idea of how the story goes- girl meets guy, they fall in love, but there's another who was already in love with girl. However, what makes the story so amazing (that is, for a highschool romcom) is that it takes the classic story line and adds twists to it. Sadly, read more

After reading Hori-san Miyamura-kun or simply Horimiya, all i could think about is "This is not your average Romance Manga"



The story may not involve fantasy,fighting,heavy drama....a first impression of Horimiya would make you say that it has a simplistic story, but if you think about it The struggles of this characters, makes you connect to each one of them, they have those traits that make you want to sympathize with them, the struggles you face while growing up are clearly portrayed in the story, Horimiya is not your just romance or comedy...it has the power of making you feel nostalgia, it may be the read more
