Horimiya (Jan 10, 2021)
Best New Anime 2021
Horimiya is a new anime coming in 2021 based on a manga that’s been ongoing since 2011. It’s a romantic comedy that focuses on the lives of high schoolers Kyouko Hori and Izumi Miyamura.
Both students show sides of themselves at school that turn out to be surface-level parts of a whole picture. Hori gives off the impression of being extremely social and well put together, while Miyamura is known to be nerdy and unapproachable.
The two have a chance encounter outside of school, but they both act and look so differently that they almost don’t recognize each other. Through this encounter, they become friends that share parts of their lives that nobody else has seen.
