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]

this kind of story may not be for everyone,

it's more on a slice of life, comedy than a romance genre but i love them all!

I think what makes it different to other romance genre is that its very own plot is just like what really happens to their day, and I enjoy it very much. it's such a breath of fresh air to a heavy romance drama, it's light and it kept me awake at night.

I usually get overwhelmed when there's a lot of character but i love every each of them here. It is easy to read, and they are all fun. ...

A romcom with fresh perspective that had a strong start but couldn't finish it the same way.

Horimiya is one of the most realistic (as far as realistic goes in manga/ anime) story I have enjoyed reading. The start was quite good and was quite enjoyable to read. The confession was quicker than I expected as they didn't beat around the bush too much. But their progress halted after the proposal on chapter 63.

When Tooru confessed to Hori in chapter 3, I laughed saying "The manga is call Horimiya not Tooruhori" and thought that I didn't have see a love triangle. But my issue with story ...

Words aren't enough to express the disappointment I felt while reading this.

This story had been recommended to me by a few people I hold very dear to my heart. Considering that the anime is only 12 episodes and the manga is 122 chapters, my stupid brain said "well, since the anime cuts that much, I'll go to the manga to read the full story".

My god what a stupid mistake I made. Not only this was a pain to sit through, it was probably one of the least enjoyable manga reading experiences I faced in all my weeb life.
However, I will say that it's not all ...
