In this year's third issue of Square Enix publisher's Monthly G Fantasy magazine it was announced that the manga written by HERO and illustrated by Daisuke Hagiwara, Horimiya, will publish its final chapter in the next issue of the magazine, scheduled for the 18th. March in Japan.
For its part, HERO published the manga in yonkoma format between February 2007 and December 2011, and Square Enix publisher compiled the work in a total of ten volumes. This first edition was titled Hori-san to Miyamura-kun. HERO subsequently began republishing the manga, this time through a paper serialization under the title Horimiya, with illustrator Daisuke Hagiwara via Square Enix publisher's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in October 2011.
The play is inspiring a thirteen-episode anime adaptation produced by CloverWorks Studios, directed by Masashi Ishihama and scripts written by Takao Yoshioka, which has been on air in Japan since last January. Funimation is in charge of its international distribution.
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.
