Manga: Horimiya 《ホリミヤ》 – Hagiwara Daisuke


Other name: 崛与宫村

Author: HERO, Hagiwara Daisuke

Status: Ongoing, 56 Chapters

Summary: Hori is your average teenage girl… she has a side she wants no one else to ever find about. Then there’s her classmate Miyamura, your generic glasses-wearing boy in school and a totally different person outside. When the two meet unexpectedly, they discover each others’ secrets and develop an unexpected friendship.

Genres: Comedy, Romance, Shounen




Hori Kyouko is a popular, pretty girl, who’s much liked by everyone in school. Once school is finished Hori becomes a plain ordinary girl who takes care of her little brother as her parents work. She’s your dream house wife, who cooks and clean, entirely opposite to the image she has at school.

While Miyamura Izumi appears to be a typical nerd werido, who’s gloomy and doesn’t talk much. Out of school Miyamura dresses like a punk, with 9 piercings (as you read the manga you come to understand why he has that many piercings), tattoos and his long hair tied back. They both another side that no one at school knows.

They meet upon chance, when Miyamura helps her little brother Sota and sends him home. They both know each other secrets and Miyamura starts going over to Hori’s house after school and helps her out. From helping keep each other’s secrets to eventually develop feelings for each other who’s considered from different worlds. What will happen to these two?

I love it when Miyamura finally got his haircut and his smooth move in having their first kiss *lol clay flavor candy ewww*. Hori has a lesbian crush ahaha which Miyamura gets jealous of. I love how Hori appears gentle and sweet but she’s one kick-ass female lead that can kick some annoying bully butts. I quite like this manga, if you’re interested you can read it here
