Between taking care of her brother, feeding them both, and housework, she doesn't have much time for a usual teenage social life.

    Super cute!

    “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 eve...

    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...

    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!

    Sehr lustig, ich freue mich schon auf den zweiten Band! 🙌
  • Maria Kth
    in the beginning it was quite plain and boringyet it got better and better, the characters being extremely cute making me go 'awww' a few times.
  • M N
    *has died of fangirling*This was the sweetest, cutest, and most freaking adorable thing EVER!!
  • chloe ✨
    So adorable!!
  • Lauren
    This was such a cute manga! The drawings were superb and the depiction of Miyamura
  • Selena
    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. :)
  • Glire
    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
  • Roya MD
    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 جلوت...
  • Deborah Embury
    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.
  • Hitarthi Pandya
    haha lol this came in my recommendations and i just realised that i have actually read the whole thing (what was published until 2016)
  • Miriam
    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.
  • Mary
    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...
  • Jocilyn
    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 real...
  • Summer
    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.
  • Nərmin
    The first volume was sweet, adorable, relaxed and cheerful. I really liked it. It was like breath of fresh air. It was kinda slow, but I guess slice-of-life manga are slow in general. I loved all the character relationships and want to read more about them. Overall, I'll continue with this one.
  • Kien
    I'm not ashamed.Yes it's high school romance, but it's also top top qualitee high school romance.
  • Vera Neves (Sinfonia dos Livros)
    Tão fofooooooos!
  • Valery Tikappa
    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 co...
  • Meriana
    Sudah baca vol. 1-4Salah 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 😄 Kal...

    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.
