What is Horimiya
Horimiya is an anime based on the manga by Hiroki Adachi. It’s a familiar story of a high school bond between the unlikely pair of Hori and Izumi. Hori is the popular girl at school that does well in all her classes, but her home life leaves Hori dedicated to caring for her younger brother and doing housework due to her two working parents hardly ever being home. Izumi appears to be your typical quiet and distant high school nerd, but that is just his surface. The bookish facade hides a boy struggling with school with tattoos and piercings. The two opposites meet and begin sharing their secret side with each other and building a friendship and possibly more.
The series is one to check out if you enjoy Rom-Com anime. I’m hard-pressed to think of a better one. This takes a very down-to-earth premise that is generally light and full of fluff but keeps us invested with great writing and a fun cast of characters. Just before the story of Hori and Izumi has a chance to get stale, their dynamic is refreshed by the classmates around them, each well written and fleshed out. If Shonen is your thing, then you should give this one a try.
