Horimiya Romantic Comedy Manga Gets TV Anime in January 2021
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
An official website launched on Friday to announce that Daisuke Hagiwara's Horimiya manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation that will premiere in January 2021. The website also revealed the main cast, staff, and a teaser visual.
Haruka Tomatsu is playing Kyoko Hori (seen right in image above), and Kouki Uchiyama is playing Izumi Miyamura (left).
Masashi Ishihama (PERSONA 5 the Animation, From the New World) is directing the series at CloverWorks. Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, WATAMOTE) is in charge of series composition and the script. Haruko Iizuka (Ensemble Stars!, Children of the Whales) is designing the characters. Masaru Yokoyama (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin) is composing the music.
Yen Press publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
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!
Hagiwara launched the manga in Monthly G Fantasy in 2011 as a spinoff to HERO's Hori-san to Miyamura-kun four-panel school comedy manga. Square Enix published the 15th compiled book volume of the manga on Friday. Yen Press published the 14th volume on July 21.
The original Hori-san to Miyamura-kun manga has already inspired four OVA adaptations.
