At school, Kyouko Hori is known for being smart, attractive, and popular. On the other hand, her classmate, the boring, gloomy Izumi Miyamura tends to get painted as a "loser fanboy." But when a liberally pierced and tattooed (not to mention downright gorgeous) Miyamura appears unexpectedly on the doorstep of secretly plain-Jane homebody Hori, these two similarly dissimila ...more

“Everyone has a side of themselves they dont want other people to see.”

This manga is shounen with shojo feel and unexpectedly pretty good..

The Premise: Hori-san contrary to her appearance at school, is a makeup-free housewife (looks after her brother) at home.

In complete contrast to the gloomy and some-what boring image he maintains at school, Miyamura-kun styles his hair and shows off his piercings on weekends.

Due to a short series of events, they’ve found out about each others hidden sides

It's been a long time since I've read such a nice shoujo. Lately all I find are cliche, supposedly romantic but just really ridiculous shoujos, where the MC (a "nice, naive" girl) falls for the first guy who is nice to her. Then follows ridiculous amount of tears and angst. Thank God for ホリミヤ! (which is the portmanteau of Hori and Miyamura)

This manga is about a pretty girl who befriends the "dark, creepy" guy from her classmate. Only that Miyamura is anything but creepy. He is a kind boy who, be

I picked this one up after it was suggested at a book club meeting a while ago! I thought it was pretty cute and a good intro into a story that I'd probably enjoy! I found it a little chaotic and hard to read/understand at times, but I'm not sure if it's just because some things got lost in translation? I definitely want to continue with this one though as I've been itching for a new manga series to get into!

This was such a cute manga! The drawings were superb and the depiction of Miyamura <3

I’m only giving it 4 stars though because it wasn’t as straightforward to read as the other manga I have read (Orange and Dreamin’ Sun).

Still this was an adorable read and I will definitely be carrying on with the series.

This is the kind of manga that I love. Not a whole lot happens, but the characters are fun to "hang out" with and make it a good read. I wouldn't call the characters "quirky" so much as "fun."

Not sure how long this series can keep up the light-hearted slice-of-life, but I hope it's for a few more volumes. :)

حس می کنم قرن هاست که رومنس نخوندم :| مخصوصاً از نوع مانگا-طورش. هیچ وقت خیلی دوست نداشتم؛ ولی خب نمی تونم انکار کنم که خوندن چیزای رومنس تقریبا شاد، هر از گاهی واقعا لازمه. مثل یه جور خونه ی شکلاتی می مونه که آدم پناه ببره بهش و انرژی بگیره. ببینیم جلوتر چی میشه.

I looooove this! Such a great beginning. Hori and Miyamura are more similar than they think. They are both hiding their double lives others. (But I honestly don't understand why. Hori being very homely isn't something that's embarrassing. I can understand why Miyamura does it though. Japan still frowns down upon people with tattoos and such) I love the fact he's gaining more friends! <3 Baby Miyamura deserves all the love.

El principio no me convencía demasiado pero luego ¡sí que me atrapó!

Una historia tierna y encantadora, que entremezcla amor, familia y amistad en tiempos de clases. Mi tipo de manga favorito <3

This was so freakin cute!! I loved the art style, characters, dialogue- all of it! Would highly recommend if you want a contemporary, fluffy manga.

Sweet! Very different in tone from "Mars" but reminiscent in that there appears to be no real plot and barely even events, simply the observation of individuals interacting.

I bet everybody has a side they don't show anyone else.

Along the lines of His and Her Circumstances and Switch Girl, Horimiya takes the idea of what would happen if two people saw each other outside of school in extremely different ways. This is of course a romance but ROFL it was licensed under Yen Press so for any guys who love this series, which I know there are, they can't say they don't like shojo now considering this is LITERALLY shojo.

It's cute, the two main characters are great both by t

Without reviewing everything I've ever read, I have to think this is the absolute best shoujo I've ever read written by a man. It's extremely funny, cute, heartwarming, romantic, you name it. I was floored with how well written it is. I admit to thinking it's probably slightly better in Japanese than it is in English, but that being said it's incredibly strong in English too. The main plot is similar to Kare Kano, but different enough not to really seem derivative necessarily. One thing i didn't ...more

I am a sucker for a good shoujo manga. Yes they are tropey and overly saccharine once you've read a lot of them in a row. But I love them anyways. You just have to take them in smaller doses. Anyways. This was cute. It reminded me of Kare Kano/His and Her Circumstances a little bit.

Horimiya è una commedia scolastica che mi ha sorpresa per la sua indole divertente e tenera.
Hori e Miyamura sono due liceali che, per una serie di motivi, a scuola preferiscono l'apparenza piuttosto che la sostanza, ed entrambi fingono di esser qualcosa che non sono.
Almeno, questo accade fin quando non si scontrano mentre bene in mostra è la loro vera natura e saranno costretti a calare le maschere e conoscersi per davvero.
Con delle premesse così, era ovvio che avrei adorato questo primo volume,

Salah satu komik romcom favorit saya. Pacenya pas, nggak penuh konflik berlarut-larut seperti sinetron, tapi juga nggak secepat kilat terburu nafsu. Romance anak abg yg lebay [i](dimana anak-anaknya cuman ngurus cinta seenak perut tanpa mikir sekolah dan ortu/keluarga)[/i] [b]tidak akan anda temukan[/b] di sini. Yang disajikan adalah romance malu-malu kucing kesukaan saya. Dan saya berharap bisa tetap polos seperti itu 😄 Kalo iya,, bisa nambah jadi 5 bintang.

Fun slice of life manga. I like the hidden identities that the protagonists share. Something about this series reminds me of KareKano (His and Her Circumstances). Pretty funny too. I like how weird Miyamura is, he's full of surprises. Cat Miyamura, nya.

This is by far one of the best shoujo mangas out there. It's just so perfect and simple. There's no sappy over the top drama, just two adorable people who fall for each other. It's funny, sweet & super charming!
