RomCom Manga Series “Horimiya” Gets TV Anime Adaptation Set for January 2021 Release

Anime News

Good news to fans of Hori and Miyamura, as it was revealed that Daisuke Hagiwara’s fan-favorite romantic comedy manga Horimiya will be getting a TV anime adaptation! The announcement was made by way of the launch of a new website for the series, which is set for a January 2021 premiere. A teaser visual was revealed to accompany the happy news:

Female lead Kyoko Hori will be voiced by Haruka Tomatsu (Yuuki Asuna in Sword Art Online), while male lead Izumi Miyamura will be voiced by Kouki Uchiyama (Kei Tsukishima in Haikyu!!)

The website has also revealed the main staff who will be working on the upcoming series, with Masashi Ishihama (PERSONA 5 The Animation) at the helm directing the series at CloverWorks. Series composition and script will be done by Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD), with character design by Haruko Iizuka (Ensemble Stars!) and music composition by Masaru Yokoyama (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans).

Yen Press holds the license for the series’ English release, and they describe Horimiya’s story as such:

“At first glance, the ultra-popular Hori-san seems like a frivolous high school girl, but in reality, she’s plain, pragmatic, and family-oriented. On the other hand, the bespectacled Miyamura-kun comes across as an average, gloomy high school fanboy, but he’s actually an attractive young man who has a bad-boy streak and is covered in piercings and tattoos. When these two unexpectedly similar classmates have a random run-in outside of the classroom, a bubbly, sweet tale of school life begins!”

Daisuke Hagiwara launched Horimiya in 2011 as a spinoff to the four-panel school comedy manga Hori-san to Miyamura-kun by HERO. Square Enix is publishing the series’ volumes in Japan, with 15 compiled volumes released so far. The original Hori-san to Miyamura-kun series had already received four OVA adaptations from 2012 to 2018.
