Daisuke Hagiwara's HORIMIYA Manga To End This March After 10 Year Run

Daisuke Hagiwara's HORIMIYA Manga To End This March After 10 Year Run

Just as many anime watchers were starting to discover Horimiya, surprising news has emerged from Japan revealing that series author Daisuke Hagiwara is ending the manga next month.

For romance anime lover, the Horimiya TV anime is a breath of fresh air after a few consecutive seasons dominated by battle shonen anime. However, it looks as the anime will soon be able to determine its own mortality as Daisuke Hagiwara revealed that the manga is ending next month, releasing its final chapter on March 18.

The manga actually started out as the 2007 4-koma (4 panel) web comic Hori-san to Miyamura-kun from HERO. The 4-koma manga ended in 2011 just as the series became serialized as a traditional manga series in Square Enix's GFantasy monthly manga magazine. Fifteen volumes have been released in Japan while Yen Press has translated and released 14 english-language volumes in North America.

The web comic was previously adapted into a 4-episode ONA (original net video) in 2012.  Studio Cloverworks produced a currently-airing TV anime that debuted this past January. A live-action project was also announced in 2020 and released in February 2021.  The same cast and staff produced a film which was released on February 5,  and an expanded live-action television adaptation that will release weekly episodes beginning on February 17.

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!
