When it came out in early 2021, “Horimiya” caused a storm around the world. Fans fell in love with the sweet love story between two high school students who were at odds with each other.
The anime series is based on a manga series called Hero which was written and drawn by Hiroki Adachi. It tells the story of a popular girl and a nerdy guy who have very different lives outside of school.
They agreed to keep each other’s secrets secret, and in the process, they fell in love. Even though the anime series came to a clear and happy end, fans want to see more of their love story. So, will there be a second season of “Horimiya”? What we know is as follows.
What Does “Horimiya” Mean, and What Might Happen in Season 2?
The story of “Horimiya” is about a pretty, popular girl named Kyoko Hori and a quiet, shy guy named Izumi Miyamura. Both of them went to the same high school, but they are very different in terms of their social status and attitude.
But their personalities at school are carefully crafted to hide who they really are outside of the school’s walls. Even though Izumi is a nerd, he lives a more exciting life. When he goes outside, he dresses in punk style, with earrings and tattoos.
In the meantime, Kyoko dresses down and takes care of Souta, who is younger than she is. The two run into each other outside of school. When they find out each other’s secrets, they promise not to tell their classmates at school.
As the story goes on, the two of them start to feel something for each other. In the end, they finally told each other they loved each other, and their friends were happy for them and accepted their relationship. In the last episode of the show, the two were seen getting their diplomas.
If the show gets picked up for a second season, Kyoko and Izumi’s relationship is likely to go on. The source material for the first season has already been used up. So, if they want to keep making the anime, they will have to come up with a new story.
Will There Be a Second Season of “Horimiya”?
The anime hasn’t been picked up for a second season yet, and it might be hard for it to come back. The first season was the end of the show’s story. There were no more surprises or secrets to find out.
The show might not come back for a second season because there are no more stories to tell now that the story is over. Besides that, the anime caught up with the storyline of the manga series. After the last chapter of the manga came out in March 2021, there is no more source material for a new season.
Based on the last chapter of the manga series, the last episode was about the last day of school for the Katagiri Senior High School students. Since there is no more source material to adapt, there may not be a second season of Horimiya.
What Happened in Season 1 of Horimya?
Izumi Miyamura went to Kyoko Hori’s house one day and met her there. They found out each other’s secrets, which is where the story started. Hori was the most popular and prettiest girl in her class. Miyamura, on the other hand, was a nerdy, shy boy who wore glasses.
Miyamura used to be the person everyone tried to stay away from. But that changed when he became friends with Hori. Yoshikawa, Hori, and Ishikawa joined him in a group for the first time for a class project. During the summer, Sakura had a crush on Ishikawa.
Hori didn’t have any parents, so Miyamura took care of her when she was sick. Miyamura told Hori that he loved her while she was asleep. They didn’t understand each other very well because of Souta, Hori’s little brother. Miyamura kissed Hori after school after they made up.
When Ishikawa asked Sakura to get rid of a stain on his jersey, she baked him cookies. Miyamura, on the other hand, found out that Hori was cruel. Yoshikawa said no when Akane Yanagi asked him out on a date. Because Mizouchi had a crush on Hori, he was mean to Miyamura when they met.
Hori was making Miyamura mean to her. Sakura was shocked when she heard that Ishikawa and Yuki were dating. Sengoku tried to comfort her afterward. Hori told Miyamura on Christmas night that she wanted to be with him forever.
Miyamura said they would get married in response. Then, at the party, they talked about their favorite school memories. In the end, Hori and Miyamura walked hand in hand and talked about how beautiful their love story was.
When Could the Anime’s Second Season of “Horimiya” Come Out?
We already know that the second season of “Horimiya” might not happen. But the show has not been officially canceled, so there is still a very small chance that there will be a second season.
The first season started on January 10, 2021, and ended on April 4, 2021, after 13 episodes. If the show is picked up for a second season, it won’t come out until 2022 or 2023 at the earliest.
