There's romance in the manga of course (you only have to look at the genre to know that), but that's not what this title review is referring to. This title is for the fact that I'm absolutely in love with this manga. It's just a ton of good-hearted fun. I laugh in every chapter, and anytime it updates, I'm happy. I'm happy to re-read. Whatever. This manga makes my soul feel light on a dark day (so does Junjou Drop, btw).

Read it.

What's great about this comic is that it's mainly just school life and comedy. Romance does come in eventually, but it's not overpowering and there aren't dumb chapters dedicated to puppy love drama or immediate love rivals. That's what makes it more shounen and less shoujo; the lack of retardedness.

Props to the artist for drawing normal-fitting clothing 'cause seriously, don't you get tired of boob-sock shirts sometimes? U go Hagiwara.

I was super surprised by this

For one thing, though, I'm usually the biggest critique when it comes to high school romances (I really like slice-of-life though, so if anyone pulls that off well in theirs, I'm all there). For another, I really have a favoured tendency towards male characters with short-hair.

When I started reading this, it was because I wanted something that wasn't stereotypical shoujo-esque. I read using mangapark so y'know, what gives, right? It was filed under Josei (which I rather like because it's a bit more realistic in terms of relationship expectations), so i thought why not. (Edit: I see here that it's listed as shounen on mangaupdates, which really explains a lot about why it isn't just overbearing romance as far as the eye can see, "you're the only one for me"-esque drama llamas) I was surprised and thrilled by what I got--I thought, okay, well, even if the male lead's design isn't my thing, I guess I'll give it a shot.

Imagine my surprise--this manga's really, really cute and sweet. Not overbearingly so, but in the just-right increments for me. I love the development of their relationship before they start really developing feelings (i think it begins roughly around chapter 14)--I love slow romances. With female leads that usually take care of the home, I expected some really obnoxious siblingship sacrificing, or just being a doormat. Nope, but ehh. Miyamura's personality seems to develop into a sardonic one in the later chapters once we learn about the fact that he actually has friends (not bad, but idk, I felt it could've been better developed).

Anyway, I really liked tons of elements to it. However, in the earlier chapters, it follows a weird shoujo-trap cliche of setting up for common themes: like, "oh no, my best friend is interested in the guy I like", or, "I just wanna be able to have fun with other people, but I can't because I have to look after my family first"--but it never gets addressed or it really never feels like a huge thing? (The second one isn't even spoiler because we're introduced to that from chapter one, and she seems to be doing fine, like taking care of her brother isn't really hurting her in anyway confused However,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when she gets sick, we get this exposition of her and just being like 'naw mama you go to work i'm not a kid anymore it's okay!' when she was sick as a child--and while it's an inherent part of how she became what she is, I feel like that's not solid enough for me (maybe I have different expectations, who knows).

Anyway, a not bad manga--I really think positively of it, and I'm looking forward to a lot of foreshadowed character get-togethering

(I'm looking at you, Toru, Sakura--those two are such cuties I'm just ripping my face in half every time I think about it)
, its balance on friendships the characters have (it could be stronger, but considering how manga usually portrays it or fails to, I'm always grasping for it), and I really like what kindness this manga does to its secondary characters (Hori's parents, etc). I'm looking forward to the ride. Peace!

So damn good

What is there not to like about this manga.
The art is good, the storyline is interesting, the comedy is gold, and the characters....I just want to kiss them all. I like how the story stands out on its own. It just does not feel very cliche at all. Its very refreshing.
Also, handsome little brave stud, you. He seems shy and awkward, but he's actually very a bawss. He may be trying to keep a low profile with his appearance, but when he really likes something and wants to show it, he just goes in for the kill. Out of many other male heroine types, he just stands out in that he can be both reserved and forward, and he does it all in a very appealing way.

About the shonen/shojo argument.......I feel like this manga is a shonen that is written with shojo elements. Basically saying, it feels like a shojo....but the way it treats its characters is different from typical shojo.
I noticed this during a chapter with Toru Ishikawa.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the one where he found out Izumi and Hori-san are dating, and he is crying.
The way the mangaka wrote and illustrated Toru's current emotions during that chapter made me feel as if I was reading the manga through a guy's point of view.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Generally speaking, it was the same feeling I had when reading "Kimi No Iru Machi" which is also a shonen romance manga, (sorry, this could be either a good or bad example, considering KNIM is typically unrealistic considering the level of ecchi and harem in that story.)

I guess the only way you can describe Horimiya is that it is a hybrid shonen/shojo, since the writing style is slice of life shojo, but the feelings and emotion can be similar to shonen. And, unlike typical shonen romance, (harems, ecchi, etc.,) the story does not include any of those elements and actually feels realistic.

1- I've modified the genre from shounen to shoujo because I agree with the other comments - we'll see if the change sticks.
2- It's a very sweet romance. I like it because it's actually pretty realistic (for a manga) and though it's slow it's a buildup that can be felt in their interactions (and doesn't feel like watching the ice caps melting).

Not that I have anything against it (I'm male), but once put in proper category its more comfortable to read. The plot is way more down to the earth compared to your typical shoujo though.

P/s: for whoever wrote a long post ealier, I read josei too. Its the content not the tags that decides which manga you should read.

I can`t really understand the rampage about the shounen/shojo label. Sure, the label helps you when you search for something you might like, but even then there is still A LOT of different tastes inbetween a label. So getting dissapointed because of some expectations you made by yourself isn't really fair to the mangaka and other reader who want a honest opinion.

I chose that one by its cover without even noticing what label it had and so far i really like it. Strongest point of this manga is its authentic characters and bold humor.

But i wait with my rating till its complete.

I agree with alexdhamp. It kind of feels like a combination of both shoujo and shounen, albeit I do think that it's more shoujo. Anyways, I think it's a great read that both genders would like. I mean, the art is lovely, the story and characters are lovable and there isn't any of the unnecessary dramas or cliches of typical shoujo.

Definitely this manga went over my expectations, i was expecting some plain plot and over used situations on this kind of genre, but is nice to see some good shounen once in a while, worth the read.

All the characters are likable, the art is really good and the comedy is great. There's no drawn out misunderstandings or characters which get on your nerves too much and the pacing is slow and steady.
Highly recommended.
