I'm only 10 chapters in, but I think I'll stop here. The "no homo"-esque moments irk me, and they gay = creepy thing is seriously pissing me off. The manga overall is okay, but boring. I'm out. Bye.

For those of you who keep complaining about shoujo, go read Akuma to Love Song or Warau Kanoko-sama/Koi Dano Ai Dano or Kare Kano. (Or if you prefer josei manhwa, Cheese in the Trap).

Absolutely love the characters in here - especially Hori and Miyamura. Anyway, this manga is about a popular, pretty girl and a gloomy-looking boy who find love within each other and their story together. It's a cute story with quirky characters that AREN'T annoying. Now, que the ships and fan girls!

I really like the pace of the manga, because it allows you to slowly develop the characters. But thanks to chapter 37 I have decided to rate this manga 9.5, which is really really high and I hope that I won't have to drop the rating. smile I recommend this!!

Great start but kind of fading

It starts off so great!! Like everyone else has said, they've got this great premise and really great down to earth relationship and then the focus starts to shift. Suddenly we've got too many side characters and stories and entering into typical high school manga cliches (what's a high school manga without a sports festival apparently). Its feels like it's plateaued. Even the relationship between the the two leads has sort of settled.

All that being said it's a really refreshing manga, romance wise it doesn't really fall into any tropes (none that I can really think of at the moment anyway) and its definitely worth the read in that regard. I'm enjoying it despite the drag it's currently experiencing and I'm hoping it'll find it's feet again.

ETA: So three years later, I'm still following this manga but I sort of feel like nothing is really happening now, it feels kind of aimless. Hori and Miyamura's relationship has become sort of one dimensional/comic relief? It's lost some of its appeal for it. Not enough to drop it just yet but it certainly doesn't have the same draw that it did at the start.

Yes everyone knows Horimiya is a shounen manga.
That doesn't change the fact that it feels like a shoujo manga even if it's not. It is written by a woman (although drawn by a man) and it follows a female protagonist, has a male love interest that is perfect in every way, has next to no violence and lots of emphasis on shoujo-style plotting. This manga, with a different artist, could have easily run in a shoujo magazine.

I for one, find it pretty cool that some editor out there thought it'd be fun to run a manga that'd normally cater to girls in a boys magazine. It might be a subtle way of trying to get more boys into romance and other girly topics.

But let's not kid ourselves. This isn't your typical shounen romance manga. And that's what makes it stand out.

What a wonderful romance shounen manga!

I used to think that shounen mangas do not have titles that are as light-hearted as this. When I found out that there are love stories like Horimiya that is aimed at shounen readers, I took interest right away. This manga turned the tables of the usual high school love stories among shoujo titles where the heroine is weak and the love interest is exceptionally good at everything. In Horimiya, Hori Kyoko is the popular and smart one while Miyamura Izumi is the soft-hearted airhead. With such a role switch, I figured that this pair was worth checking out.

I loved how their relationship blossomed so casually. Their development from close buddies to lovers was depicted so naturally that it felt like the romance was a subplot to their everyday lives. It was much like the shoujo manga Kateshi Kanojo no Jijou, except that there has yet to be some sort of melodrama to occur. Personally, I'd like for the story to just proceed as it is - no frills, no breakdowns. I'd prefer it to stay as light-hearted as it is. The art is also great so it deserves the full points that other commenters here have given it.

I recommend this manga to those who are tired of tearjerkers and to those who want to reminisce young love. It's sweet, funny, and most of all touching. All characters are easy to love (including the parents!)

So the three reviews immediately before this one *all* tell some variation on how they all found this 'shoujo' manga refreshing since it doesn't follow the usual shoujo tropes.

Of course it doesn't follow the usual shoujo tropes, it's a friggin shounen manga. Published in a shounen magazine. Seriously, are there really this many people who can't read genre tags? I apologize for ranting in a review space but it's driving me nuts...

In my eyes, I can be critical of shoujo manga. There are only a handful of series that I see as complete (as in giving me satisfaction with little to no remorse). This manga surprised me in how real it felt. Strong heroines in shoujo mangas come few at a time however, even then, they all seem to have similar weak points. Something about Hori-san in the story draws me to her so much. Much like the description, there are two strong leads and I find it so refreshing. Hori-san (heroine) has strength where other manga heroines falter but even she keeps things real. The characters match each other nicely and I don't find myself particularly hating any character. Additionally, this manga is quirky and so funny. It's a rare occurrence when I actually laugh out loud during a manga... usually I give a smile when something is funny. This manga has me laughing at times just at the facial expressions.

Alright, so to wrap up all of my random thoughts, I'm enjoying this manga so much. Great storyline, compatible characters, and fantastic leads. This story is for those who love something real and not over the top! I highly recommend this. One of my favorites by far!

i'm surprised

i really dislike most shoujo so when my friend recommended this i came in expecting to hate it.
imagine my surprise when the lead characters ended up being portrayed a bit more like real humans rather then a series of annoying cliches. the main characters actually talk to each other instead of assuming things or running away. the female mc is not a doormat nor is the main guy a jerk. there are no evil parents or horribly done love triangle/squares.
its way too soon to rate this since we're only 30 chapters in but its surprisingly enjoyable.
so far this is sweet (without being saccharine), funny, and thoughtful.
maybe i'll look into some other slice of life stuff.

This is the most amazing romance manga i have ever read. It is about a popular girl who has to take care of her younger brother after school and a boy who has no friends and is 'just there'. They meet outside of school when the girl is taking care of her younger brother and the guy has ton s of pericings and looks awesome. i highly recommend this manga.
