Scheduled to begin airing on January 9th at 10:30am EST, the anime adaptation of Daisuke Hagiwara’s manga Horimiya is going to be a treat! The anime will be airing on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV and BS11 which means it could be a bit before we see the subbed or dubbed versions.
The manga currently has 38 chapters, but it is unclear at this time how many episodes will make up the first season. (Aka, you all know how long we had to wait for a season 2 of Fruits Basket, even though the manga had 136 chapters.)
“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!.”— Yen Press

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 dissimilar teenagers discover that there are multiple sides to every story…and person!
