Horimiya Synopsis

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. In addition, he has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair, and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder. By pure chance, Hori and Miyamura pass each other 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.
