The official website for the anime adaptation of the manga "Horimiya" by HERO and illustrated by Daisuke Hagiwara has released a brand new promotional video for its complementary season called "Horimiya: The Missing Pieces". And guess what? The premiere is scheduled for July 1st in Japan.
Let's dive into this trailer? It not only gives us a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come but also treats us to some amazing music. Omoinotake will be performing the opening theme titled "Shiawase", while Ami Sakaguchi will grace us with the closing theme called "URL". Talk about getting us in the mood for some Horimiya goodness!
Now, here's the scoop. "Horimiya: The Missing Pieces" will be available in the West through the Crunchyroll platform. It's an exciting new season that follows up on the anime adaptation that premiered in 2021. This time, it will cover the stories that weren't adapted in the first season. So get ready to dive deeper into the world of Horimiya and discover those missing puzzle pieces.
In case you missed it, the first season of Horimiya aired in Japan during the Winter 2021 season (January-March). It consisted of thirteen episodes, and Funimation brought it to the Western audience. The manga, which started back in October 2011, was published in Monthly G Fantasy magazine by Square Enix and concluded in March 2021.
Now, let's talk about the fantastic team behind this project.
- Masashi Ishihama, known for works like "Glass no Hana to Kowasu Sekai" and "Persona 5 the Animation", is directing the show at CloverWorks studios.
- Takao Yoshioka, the mastermind behind series like "100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru" and "Demi-chan wa Kataritai" is responsible for the writing and script supervision.
- The talented Haruko Iizuka, who has worked on projects such as "Ensemble Stars!" and "Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko." is in charge of character design.
- Last but not least, the musical genius Masaru Yokoyama, known for his work on "Arakawa Under the Bridge" and "Fate/Apocrypha" will be composing the captivating soundtrack.
Now, let me give you a quick rundown of the story for those who are new to Horimiya. Meet Kyouko Hori, a high school student admired for her kindness and academic prowess. But here's the catch: she's been hiding a different side of herself. With her parents often away due to work, Hori has to take care of her younger brother and handle household chores, leaving her with little time to socialize outside of school.
On the other hand, we have Izumi Miyamura, who is seen as a mysterious otaku wearing glasses. But in reality, he's a kind-hearted and not-so-great student. He even sports nine hidden piercings beneath his long hair and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder. By a stroke of luck, Hori and Miyamura meet outside of school, and they don't look like what the other would expect.
These seemingly opposite poles become friends, sharing a side of themselves that they've never shown to anyone before.
So, July 1st is important, because Horimiya: The Missing Pieces is coming your way. Get ready to unravel the mysteries and explore the unadapted tales of this heartwarming series.
