MBS television announced the production of a film and live-action series based on the manga written by HERO and illustrated by Daisuke Hagiwara, Horimiya. The film will open in Japanese theaters on February 5, 2021, while the seven-episode live-action series will premiere on February 16, 2021.
The series will air on MBS and TBS television stations in Japan. Both productions will feature the same cast of actors, which includes Ouji Suzuka (left in visual) and Sayu Kubota (right) playing leads Miyamura and Hori, respectively.
The film will compile the events of the first three episodes of the live-action series with some additional scenes, with Hana Matsumoto directing both projects and Mamoru Yoshino directing the fifth and sixth episodes of the live-action series. Yoshifumi Sakai is in charge of writing and supervising the scripts, in the company of Gouta Ishida and Tomohiro Ootoshi.
The manga is also inspiring an anime adaptation scheduled to premiere on January 9, 2021 in Japan, produced by CloverWorks Studios under the direction of Masashi Ishihama and scripts written by Takao Yoshioka.
Although admired at school for her kindness and academic prowess, high school student Kyouko Hori has been hiding another side of her. With his parents often away from home due to work, Hori has to take care of his younger brother and do household chores, having no time to socialize outside of school. Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a haunting otaku who uses glasses. However, he is actually a kind and inept person to study. Additionally, he has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair, and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder. By pure chance, Hori and Miyamura cross paths outside of school, neither looking like the other would expect. These seemingly opposite poles become friends, sharing a side that they have never shown to anyone.
