All aboard the Horimiya hype train as we get more news for the series! A special livestreamed event for the upcoming anime series revealed nine new cast members, as well as a visual showing all the characters (see above photo!). The new cast are:

The TV anime series will premiere on January 9. The leads will be voiced by Haruka Tomatsu (Yuuki Asuna in Sword Art Online) as Hori and Kouki Uchiyama (Kei Tsukishima in Haikyu!!) as Miyamura.
Masashi Ishihama (PERSONA 5 The Animation) will be directing the TV anime 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).
Horimiya will also be getting a live-action film and movie. The film will premiere on February 5 for a limited period of one week, while the live-action TV series will premiere on February 16. The TV series was listed to have seven episodes.
Both the film and TV series will feature Oji Suzuka and Sayu Kubota as leads Miyamura and Hori, respectively.
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.
