Get ready to tear up this January. Horimiya‘s official twitter account began streaming a teaser video for the anime series based on Daisuke Hagiwara’s romantic manga series. The promotional video introduces us to the two main characters Kyoko Hori and Izumi Miyamura.
CloverWorks is the animation studio. PERSONA 5 the Animation director Masashi Ishihama is in charge of the series and Takao Yoshioka is penning the script. Haruko Iizuka is designing the characters. Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music. The Studio previously unveiled a key visual and voice cast for the two characters.
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!
HERO debuted Hori-san to Miyamura-kun in February 2007 on his website Dokkai Ahen in a four-panel format. Square Enix released the series into 10 volumes under its imprint Gangan Comics between October 22, 2008, and December 28, 2011. Daisuke Hagiawara adapted the manga with a newly redrawn art as Horimiya.
