The four-panel school comedy manga follows the "sweet-and-sour" adolescence of Kyōko Hori and Izumi Miyamura. Hori is the most popular and gorgeous girl at school, while Miyamura is an introverted, eyeglasses-wearing boy. However, both find out that their appearances at school are not as they seem, as it turns out that Hori is a laid-back family girl, and Miyamura is a handsome young man covered in piercings and tattoos. The two find that they have more in common than they once thought.
HERO launched the manga on Square Enix's Gangan Online website in 2007, and Square Enix published the 10th and final compiled book volume in December 2011. Artist Daisuke Hagiwara launched a spinoff manga called Hori-Miya in Monthly G Fantasy in 2011, and the fourth volume is shipping on October 26. The first original video anime shipped in 2012 and a second followed in 2012, but the animation was produced at studio Hoods Entertainment.
