The Square Enix-published Horimiya manga written by HERO and illustrated by Daisuke Hagiwara ran from 2011 to 2021 with 16 tankoubon volumes. Horimiya was originally created as a web comic.

Yen Press describes the manga 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!

An OVA series produced by various studios, titled Hori-san to Miyamura-kun, began in 2012 and has six episodes as of 2021.
