The upcoming Horimiya anime received a new PV, which also previewed its two theme songs. The opening song is “Iro Kousui” (Colour Perfume) by Yoh Kamiyama, while the ending song is “Yakusoku” (Promise) by Friends.
Based on a manga series written by HERO and illustrated by Daisuke Hagiwara, Horimiya was first revealed in September and is set to premiere in January 10, 2021 at 12.30am in Japan. The staff includes Masashi Ishihama (Persona 5: The Animation, Shinsekai yori) as director, Takao Yoshioka (Your Lie in April, WORKING!!) as series composer and script writer, Haruko Iizuka (Ensemble Stars!, Inu × Boku SS) as character designer, and Masaru Yokoyama (Your Lie in April, Chihayafuru) as music composer. CloverWorks is in charge of animation production.
Haruka Tomatsu (Sword Art Online, Wasteful Days of High School Girls) and Kouki Uchiyama (My Hero Academia, Sarazanmai) are voicing main characters Kyokou Hori and Izumi Miyamura respectively. Nobuhiko Okamoto, M.A.O., Daiki Yamashita, Momo Asakura, Daisuke Ono, and Ai Kayano are among the other cast members.
Yen Press, which publishes the manga in English, describes the series as:
At school, Kyouko Hori is known for being smart, attractive, and popular. On the other hand, her classmate, the boring, gloomy Izumi Miyamura tends to get painted as a “loser fanboy.” But when a liberally pierced and tattooed (not to mention downright gorgeous) Miyamura appears unexpectedly on the doorstep of secretly plain-Jane homebody Hori, these two similarly dissimilar teenagers discover that there are multiple sides to every story…and person!
