Most of cast, staff return for stories not covered in previous anime

The Horimiya special stage panel at AnimeJapan confirmed on Saturday that the new Horimiya -piece- anime will premiere this July. The anime will animate stories in the original manga that the previous anime had not yet adapted.


The returning cast members include:

The returning staff members include:

Takao Sano is also a chief animation director in the new anime.

The previous television anime will air again in Japan, starting on April 22 at 24:00 (effectively, April 23 at midnight or April 22 at 11:00 a.m. EDT).

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!

Daisuke Hagiwara launched the Horimiya manga in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in 2011 as an adaptation of HERO's Hori-san to Miyamura-kun four-panel school comedy manga, and ended it in March 2021. HERO supervised the manga. Square Enix published the 16th and final compiled book volume of the manga in July 2021. Yen Press published the 15th volume in July 2021. Hagiwara penned an epilogue chapter for the manga in July 2021.

The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in Japan in February 2021. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired, and it also streamed an English dub.
