Horimiya synopsis

Though high school student Kyouko Hori was admired for her kindness and academic prowess, she has hidden another side of her. Since her parents are often away from work because of work, Hori has to take care of her younger brother and do housework without having time to socialize outside of school.

Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a haunted otaku wearing glasses. However, he is actually a kind and incompetent person at learning. He also has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair and a tattoo on his back and left shoulder. By chance, Hori and Miyamura pass each other outside of school and don't look what the other would expect. These apparent opposites become friends and share a side that they have never shown anyone before.
