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 re-telling of the original 4-koma webcomic Hori-san to Miyamura-kun, drawn in standard manga format by Daisuke Hagiwara.

The series has been published in English by Yen Press since October 27, 2015, in Polish by Waneko since September 15, 2015, in Spanish by Norma Editorial since August 25, 2017, and in Indonesia by Elex Media since May 24, 2017.

(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 ...

(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.

I ...

I will NEVER forgive the author of this series. The main story is ok, its nothing spectacular, its very much so drawn out, but its not unreadable. Hori and Miyamura are sweet and are interesting for the first 60ish chapters, but the last half of the series is completely devoid of real character development barring the last few chapters. whatever, thats not what makes this a 4/10. I will preface this by saying, the side characters are significantly better written than 95% of side characters in other series, but thats what ruined this series for me. This author developed a relationship between 2 people, having ...
