Characters got flanderized big time ;(

Update: wow after the MC's get physical for the first time the manga swings in a completely different direction. The small traits in each character ended up getting repeatedly troped out for comedy, until you can barely recognize the characters you've been reading about anymore. Disappointing. They should've just ended a good thing before it went on long enough to become terrible.
Can I just say that this manga is a shoujo breakthrough for having such unusual main characters? They are both so mature and relatable, with a flair of adorable chemistry and humor.

Like, this is the first time I haven't face-palmed multiple times at a shoujo main character. The author has avoided a lot of the cliches by introducing a lighter atmosphere without the excessive drama usually induced by common shoujo elements such as uncooperative father, whiny/annoying heroine, you get the idea.

EDIT: it turns out this has a "shounen" tag...(It used to have both) but that doesn't change anything. Usual shounen manga I'm used to are all really mainstream... for example... Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Bakuman, and etc.This is pretty refreshing no matter the genre. :-)

Kudos to the author.

This series needs to end.

Main story appears to be finished, but for some reason it's still ongoing, with really slow updates. Maybe the editor is to blame, but this can't be doing any good for the author. Probably afraid the next series won't compete, considering this author's previous work left a lot to be desired. This series really went downhill once the male MC cut his hair and stopped wearing his piercings. In a recent chapter, he says there' wasn't really a reason why he had piercings. Really? You got like 10+ piercings with a chain from ear to lip for no reason? Time to drop this one.

I have to agree with some of the other reviews. The manga started out so well, but I honestly feel like it ended when Miyamura cuts his hair -- after that, there's weird ridiculous personality changes and plot inconsistencies.

My biggest gripe is with Hori -- she used to be a great character. Responsible, kind, friendly, caring -- and she turns into this abusive sadistic jealous-nightmare tsundere who's always yelling at Miyamura for no reason? I keep desperately wishing she'd go back to the character she used to be, but on the off chance a chapter IS about Hori/Miya (when they've been on a lot of the side characters lately -- like don't get me wrong, I love fleshed out side characters, but it feels like the main characters have been completely neglected from a manga that is named after them, haha) there's like... nothing that makes me like Hori anymore. The way her character seems to have taken a nosedive is beyond upsetting. There's like nothing likable about her any more, and sweet moments between her and Miyamura are few and far between. And why is she groping girls' chests all of a sudden??! It's like... you never would have seen that from the Hori at the beginning of the manga. It's not funny. It's genuinely just... ugh.

So anyway, my recommendation would be to stop reading the manga when the main couple gets together for the first time, because after that, there's severe character and plot assassination, and both Hori and the romance become unrecognizable. Ugh....

Great beginning and then....filler?

The idea and beginning are great but it somehow started to sidetrack later on. As of now ch. 88 I don't know if I should continue reading this series. The last 20 Chapters felt like there was no content. Only meaningless rabble of everyday life and weird situations. It felt like the story just stopped (without actual ending) and then there comes volumes of extras. Extras as in small sidestorys after the end of some mangas :/ who wants to continue reading this?

I haven't read the original so I don't know how it is going to end but I assume similar to that. That being said the last 10 or so chapters are annoying to me. I love the side characters. I want them to be fleshed out a bit. But I also want the main story, the dynamics between Hori and Miyamura to continue. Right now it feels like things are just being milked(current chapter 88). Fillers are fine, it's still pretty good but as this is a monthly publication, it really makes me as a reader restless.

This is definitely something to pickup but I would probably wait a bit until there is something close to an ending.

Perhaps we all misunderstood? Here's my new theory:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The main story ended with the proposal on Christmas, now there are just small nuances of their everyday life. It is after all a slice of life manga as well. I know there were some small "rivals" and we see the abuse Hori gives to Miyamura but if you have been in a relationship we could possibly see this as an extreme form of flirting/banter... a really really extreme form, and taking in their personalities it kinda fits. The rivals are like half a chapter and of no real consequence I am now seeing it more as just for the lawls really. That said if my theory is correct, this makes for a really long omake. Either way I am still looking hopelessly for some other form of conclusion for Hori and Miyamura.

A manga worth reading

I agree with previous reviews that this manga may be going downhill or that these mini chapters are getting really annoying. Maybe it's all in preparation for some grand ending or something, I don't know. However, I decided to reread the manga from the beginning up to where it was and I cried so many times. The relationships and they way the story is played out is simply beautiful. This manga does such a good job portraying all the personalities and feelings of each character that it takes my breath away.The mangaka does a truly wonderful job in tying in all the characters' stories and relationships along with everyday problems and comedy. I love how during the serious moments of Horimiya, you can sense it amongst the characters' expressions and body language (i.e when souta found out they had sex or when miyamura proposes on the snowy day) and the art depicts it so amazingly well. These chapters reminded me exactly why everyone is so drawn to this manga in the first place. I hope that the mangaka will be able to return to depicting our favorite couple the way he always has been and this manga will go down in history with its previous glory.

Going downhill?

The first part of this manga was pure genius. The relationships, interactions, all of it. They felt so natural, so realistic. I liked the jokes, and the way the characters live their lives, but...
Then the story started to go downhill from there. In the beginning, it was a story about a girl who doesn't want people to know how she is outside of school, and that she needs to take care of her brother, because her parents are always working, but the thing is....After her parents got introduced, they never disappeared. What happened to their work? Wasn't she supposed to be taking care of her brother?
Also, as the story goes on, she becomes too violent and crazy....And abusive, which is played as jokes.
I love Miyamura, and his story, and I think the author did a good job in staying true to his story, but for Hori, it looks like all of her character description is thrown out of the window to be replaced with an abusive, violent and crazy girl. She wasn't like this in the beginning.
The side characters' stories are so good, though,but I think the story kinda lost its magic.

Shifted From Drama to Comedy, But That's Okay  
by bunnyteeth

Rating: N/A
Horimiya started out as a rather serious manga with comedic elements that explored people's images versus their true selves. Over time, it's shifted its focus; it's now mainly comedic with the occasional serious moment. The blurb isn't accurate at this point anymore; Horimiya is a manga, which shows glimpses into the characters' lives, how they deal with their relationships (whether it be romantic or friendship or family), how they figure out themselves and their feelings. The focus on comedic elements, however, leads to the characters becoming caricatures of themselves and many events/incidents which are unrealistic, though often funny to read about.

I personally don't find the change to be a bad thing. It's become a light-hearted manga with funny reoccuring jokes. I do wish sometimes that it had more of the serious moments; the relationships between the characters are so interesting, and sometimes its left to the wayside in favor of comedy. I like how comfortable all these characters are with each other. Hori and Miyamura understand each other so well and because of that, there's no cliche drama. There aren't evil exes or love triangles. It's just about their everyday lives and relationships.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
A couple of commenters are talking about the chapter in which Hori and Miyamura have sex. Readers found it unexpected, partly due to the fact that the manga had shown little physical interaction between the two before. (I'm not sure if they had been shown kissing yet) But Horimiya is a very subtle work. The deep connection between Hori and Miyamura had already been established. I understood how close they were, and I didn't need to see their physical interactions to know this. I had even forgotten that they had really kissed because of how close I knew they were. Sex was a milestone in their relationship that the author wanted to portray, maybe to show a shift in their connection.

I think its important to mention that when I read Horimiya, and I read it as glimpses into these characters lives. We don't get everyday shows of their lives nor do we see all the little moments that make up their day. Unlike many other romance manga, there isn't an overarching plot, no obvious hurdles that the characters need to overcome. They deal with issues as they come while generally living out their high school days peacefully. And that's the beauty of this manga. It's simplistic, but outrageous.

Started as fun, is now progressively getting worse.

First of all, I love, and I mean LOVE feel good manga.

I started to read this manga because I felt it was like Bonnouji but with more chapters. Was happy with the progression in the early chapters. Jokes were hilarious as f*ck. MCs are not cliched, stereotypical shoujo protags. There's not much drama going on. Relationship progress is going slow but steady, at least there isn't much stupid misunderstandings that are becoming common with shojou mangas nowadays. It was a generally a fun read.

Then it started to slow down. It became stale, bland, boring even. Romantic progress has basically stopped, except for a few moments like the Christmas and New Year chapters. Jokes aren't even hilarious anymore after reading it for the nth time. It basically became filler. The charm that it has once had is now gone. Reading it is becoming a chore. They're going nowhere now.

Many posters say how the vibe of the seriers changed over time, especially after Miyamura cut his hair. I somewhat agree, well, but I honestly don't mind it. I'm someone who likes lighthearted comedy with a dash of seriousness here and there. And this manga still delivers that, perhaps with more comedy and a little less focus on character growth. In general, as others have said, the characters, espcially the main ones are great, the premise is good, and the story is interesting and fun.
