Warning: Physical abuse.

Rating: 6.0  / 10.0
Overall, great start and then manga slowly deteriorates.

Now to address the abuse part... There is quite a lot of it. Hori is physically abusive and it continues to be played for laughs. Never addressed, barely acknowledged.
There is an implication that Miyamura's piercings are somewhat of a self-harm method. Closer to the end he kind of stops, probably because Hori filled that particular void.

Really good

This manga is really good. The only issue I had with it is that most chapters were focused on love. Despite that they were pretty good, Mt favorite chapters however were when two characters who were in a relationship with eachother would PHYSICALLY interact with one another. Instead of saying I love you, the way they talk to their partner and do things around their partner shows they are in a relationship. Long story short, this manga is really good and is not generic like other love focused manga

I wish everyone would experience Horimiya without reading Horomiya!

Brief version:
This is a (wonderful) story about young adolescents, living a picture-perfect mundane school life. I love it because I've never had that kind of a normal life and through this story I could somewhat experience it. There is a romantic element which I would say for more than not would be a dream come true. At the very least for me it would be. The two of the main characters' romantic development is the focal point of the story until about half way through. Then, after that aspect of the story.. Develops, they are
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in love
and each page of the story feels like another brick in the wall which is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
their love and appreciation for one another
. I feel sorrow knowing that I've long since been past the point in my life where I could hope to meet someone with who what the two main characters have become to each other will develop.. They've found someone and created something fulfilling; They've become a precious person for someone who became their precious person. The story doesn't stop there. The story goes on and shows how they nurture that relationship and make it grow every day for the rest of their life that we know about.
This is a perfectly mundane story which I only can dream of being my life at this point.
All characters are loveable good people.

Now, the a bit longer version..
People on Reddit's r/manga were displaying a lot of affection for this story a lot and that's how it got onto my radar. The story did turn out to be something I love.

One thing I've mildly disliked in Horimiya is how some characters seemed to be underappreciated. [spoilers]Most prominently Iura Shuu[/spoiler]. But that wasn't my interpretation for too much, so it's not terrible.

Through Horimiya I "lived" through what I'd love for my life to actually be. The "life" of having friends! Every interaction in this story is for me a reminder of how life can be beautiful, how my next life might be!
The characters of the story didn't feel like "more major character", "less important character", "unimportant character".. They're all just natural, the difference being only in the amount of spotlight they receive. The spotlight's shine doesn't shine brighter for anyone. It would be lovely to know more about all of the characters of this story. I feel like I could spend the rest of my days reading about them. I was so engaged with the story that I eventually started realizing "wow, you are just looking at a screen, a drawing.. They literally don't exist, this warmth is just a construct in your mind, not a real person.." and I felt sad. It's nice when a story achieves this for me.

This manga is originating from a web comic by the story's author, HERO sensei. Here is a link to her site: http://dka-hero.me/top.html
The manga Horimiya is the first 120 chapters of the web comic. Those 120 chapters convey the main story, which is primarily about Miyamura and Hori. It is so very worthy of a mention that actually there are, CURRENTLY,  460 more chapters! They're officialy categorized as bonus, but it is 460 chapters of literaly the same thing as the first 120 chapters, just with the focus being more on the other characters. Kyouko and Izumi are still present though! None of the bonus chapters have been translated thus far.

One character's (Iura's)  behaviour might be not perceivable as anything other than a quirky manga character trait; I am identical to Iura in regard to his differing personality based on who he is with, specifically, when I'm with my sisters(family) my behaviour is to a I would say great extent different than when I am with someone else.

I like Sawada Honoka a lot as a character. I'll be vague in the following about her. When she first appeared I was quickly enganged by her and the expectation of there being more of her.. It's interesting how she became "just another" character as I realized that she indeed was, just another character. What I mean is that when she first appeared she captivated the majority of my emotional attention and that I even might've expected her to become a major focus point of the whole story, but that's not what happened. There is something sorrowful about her, and there are many wonderful things about her. She is precious. The beautiful thing to me is that the authoress didn't make her revolve around any certain thing which in most stories would become at least somewhat of a defining characteristic of the character carrying it.
Life goes on and it is, to me at least, clear that in the "behind the scenes" (what the author didn't present to us in the manga) she does deal with what she has to deal with and just because the authoress chose to not make her character revolve around something which is quite a big deal doesn't mean that that thing is irrelevant. My interpretation is that it is a way to convey that people move on. People mustn't live in the past. Life goes on! One of the sad things about her is practically identical to what is sad about Miyamura in the earlier stages of the story and before the story began. Trough that I assume that it is implied that Honoka will, just like Miyamura did, overcome it and soon enough have what to her personaly is a fulfilling life. I mean, it wasn't really merely implied, it was somewhat made apparent. 🙂

Things in this manga are reeeally slice-of-life, and primarily Izumi-Kyouko.
I'm left wondering about some things , but I guess that the reason why they were't drawn out (this being a manga, also in the literal sense) is because it wouldn't fit as neatly as the authoress wants it to fit with what she strived to achieve with this creations of her's. It's not necesssary for everything to be drawn out for the reader of this story in order for the reader to know that some things did/do happen.
For example, with Honoka, I briefly felt like she stopped existing in the story which was sad to me because I like that character a lot. Then, on one page, outside of a speech bubble I think even, there was a sentence which changed my view of the whole Horimiya manga; That sentence said that Miyamura was tired because he was playing games up until the early hours with Honoka.
Poof, at that moment I realized that the story is not faulty in the way of skipping some developments. Honoka wasn't present for some time in the story at that point, so when she was mentioned just like that, I relized that the story shows us certain things and that the characters have lives outside of what is literally shown to us through the story. Tooru and Yuki have a life while we witness Hori and Miyamura hanging out at the Horis place. Yuuna and Souta have a life while we're shown the main cast all hanging out in the council room. Yuriko and Kyousuke, Miyamura's mom, Motoko.. And Honoka. They all have a life behind the scenes and this isn't a story about them (remember, there are, currently, 460 more chapters of the web comic which ARE about the other characters). This is a story about Izumi Miyamura and Kyouko Hori. Even with them, there are things which are left to my imagination and I know have happened "behind the scenes"!
The authoress portrayed for us in the story their emotional and for their relationship major developments. Things which signify how much they were bonding and growing their love for and trust in one another.  Some mundane things about them aren't drawn out for us in this story though.
Skip until the next paragraph if you don't want to read a mild spolier. It's about something which isn't (shown) in the manga, which then you'll know not to expect/hope for.
My first kiss is not something awfully worthy of a mention. Perhaps Hori and Miyamura's wasn't either? In any case, their first kiss isn't shown. Perhaps it was beautiful but nothing out-of-this world, and that is why the authoress chose not to (literally) draw it out for us, the reader, but to simply show us the story in which we will know that they did kiss prior? It could've been in the story as I doubt it wouldn't be beautiful, but it not being shown makes the story more mature to me and solidifies the "things happen behind the scenes" interpretation.

Now I'll mention something which I think is a bad topic in today's world, namely because of how contentious it is... But I will mention it, I want to mention it!
I want to mention it because what increased how much this story shines for me is precisely how this story is not contaminated by that! The characters in this story are normal human beings who make jokes that will evoke toxicity within a "woke" individual. It wouldn't surprise me if you told me that there are many people who took issue with this story because of how not-okay they are with some jokes and things that the characters of the story said, thoguht or did.. This is something I wouldn't have noticed until a year ago, but the current state of my surroundings made me take notice of the fact that this story isn't soiled by "wokeness".
I have been hurt by people who had a toxic interpretation of what I said (just a single someone IRL, while on Reddit it's not just a single person usually) and decided on stickng with it without being willing to heart out what it is that I'd actually meant. They allow themself to define my words, the meaning I had intended for them and the overal intention of my thoughts which gave birth to my words. This is really picking up pace as of late and I am glad that Horimiya is not a story constrained by the worry of not offending those people.

Alas..
My latest ponder, given birth to by this story somewhere around its 80th chapter, is that these works of fiction are here to captivate those like myself, who have practically given up on themself and thus experience "life", what they would love to have from it, through these works of fiction. I hope that as few people as possible need to read Horimiya in order to experience Horimiya!!,,,

Some people are disappointed that after a certain point nothing really happens with the main couple but this is exactly what I love the most about this work.Most romance works either end when the couple officially gets together or just introduces pointless drama and just keeps going going in circles.Whereas this work is a breath of fresh air they just keep on living their daily lives.

This is a manga that I have long dropped, but I feel too compelled to vent my frustrations. This is a manga that has left me truly gaslit. It was like something from the Twilight Zone. Seems to me that the author ran out of things to say, then decided to turn to trump the entire characterizations of the main characters, and after that all that was left to explore were the other couples, which was something I didn't care about at all.
So, for starters, you get deceived by the supposed maturity of the relationship, the problem solving, so on. The start was ok, it was readable. After that, characters start shifting so drastically to the point of being unrecognisable.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For example, Hori suddenly being unable to take care of the house even though it was something she was normally doing before that. I am almost willing to believe that my memory is hazy but I so distinctly remember being upset about that since it made absolutely no sense. Also, side note, but her being into being demeaned also creeped me out. She was a perfectly likable female character, it felt so sudden and it took away much of my enjoyment.

The side shenanigans were repetitive, unfun, bland, and completely irrelevant. I was happy to see the main characters sidelined, because they became boring themselves, but this wasn't much better. Seems like most people have an issue with this part, I won't harp on about it, point is, you probably won't have fun when you reach it, even if you had fun before.
I guess I was just sad that a supposedly unique, hyped up romance manga with a novel male lead (which I'm always a sucker for, and if you're into that sort of thing I'd wholeheartedly recommend Yamaguchi kun wa warukunai, despite it not running in a male oriented magazine and it being a much more cushier, typical shoujo due to it) turned into something completely antithetical to what it was at the start. I felt conned out of my time and patience. Style is ok, perfectly serviceable, even though I much prefer the more typical contemporary shoujo art style. I even got upset when I heard it was getting an anime, because that meant that it would be inescapable for some time, with everyone hyping it up, thus making me relive the disappointment.
Go read something else. Or don't. But I wouldn't recommend it.

Great start but the last 10 or 20 chapters are an incredible filler.

I met this manga through the anime released in 2021.
Once I finished watching it I decided to recover the manga and so I did, hoping to find an ending (which can be defined as such).
Surely the manga has MUCH more happenings than the anime and this is a plus.
The mangaka out of the blue seems to have started running to finish the manga by putting TOO MANY fillers.
Nice graphics.
In my opinion they could give much more depth to the secondary characters introduced and a proper ending.
There are a lot of things that I didn't like, again because of the last few filler chapters and they are:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Do you make me 2 chapters about Hori's brother who is at the same school, show her a couple of times and don't show Miyamura?
And then:
1) There is not a possible wedding scene between the various characters who were together.
2) The other couples do not know what happened to them.
3) No children after 10 years. (My personal taste).
4) In the end the question of tattoos kept it hidden after graduation or not since they had to go to the beach?
5) The couple formed by Toru and Yuki? In the end, did they declare that they remained a fake couple until graduation? Or did they leave it all behind once they graduate?

Aside from this it is really enjoyable, I recommend reading up to the Christmas chapter, then take it VERY lightly as stories and small developments.

I think it is a really nice manga! i liked the story a lot. the mc Hori and Miyamura are very cute toghether and also their story is very cute. I also think that the manga is a bit long and can be annoying after all this volumes. Still, i like it a lot when the story just goes on, and doesn't stop when the pair is toghether. When this thing happens i'm always like, "HOW DOES IT GO ON😕?" But in this manga, i didn't have this Problem. I like the drawing a lot and also the charackters are all unique. I recommand it a lot!!

I used to read Horimiya, I think up until Miyamura cut his hair or they started dating? And I never read it again until it's announced that Horimiya is close to ending.

I genuinely enjoyed the manga the first time I read it. Hori and Miyamura as characters are interesting; they're polar opposites but they find each other comforting. Hori was such a hardworking girl, popular and smart but also handles all housework by herself, while Miyamura was isolated and had trust issues. I liked seeing both of them grow as people and in their relationship.

Until after they dated... like few chapters in, I started to think that it's getting kind of boring. The jokes are always either Hori being downright abusive and literally everybody else doesn't really think it's a problem (just mild reminder here and there) or Hori being jealous of guys getting near Miyamura for no reason when he never even said he has interest in guys. Setting aside how toxic those jokes are if it actually happens in real life, it just kept getting recycled when honestly it was never funny in the first place.

Hori and Miyamura's characters just... disappeared? Hori is just a monster and Miyamura is just a victim. Not a trace of their characteristics in the early chapters were found, when those were the charm of this manga in the first place. The plot just goes nowhere, it's not funny, their chemistry and characters are reduced to dust.

If the manga ended around Miyamura cutting his hair or Hori and Miyamura started dating, it would have been much, much better. I recommend to read just until that part.

Is really normal to romance stories to get dragged after some point, if you really like the genre you'll see that most of times.
New love rivals, new pairs, new problems for the couple, trips and whatever.
However the most irritating thing that can happen in any story is the same(in my opinion):
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
No close ending!!! WHY?!!! Just why?
Time skip without focus in the main couple? Really?

Maybe the anime got another ending, but I'm tired of this one already to try watch.

I swear I was reading a completely different manga at some point its like we had the 2 mc's find each other grow and develop then we hit a little under half way i think
"Wow there's so much left we're going to get into more stuff and the other characters relationship more awesome i love that!".
Then just nothing .....no real development, literally all filler little teases here and there but nothing happens hell even the extra chapter doesn't give anything. It was like watching goku fight freeza yer its somewhat entertaining but if you don't have anything new can we wrap this up now?
