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 household chores without having time to meet outside of school.

Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a haunted otaku wearing glasses. However, he is actually a kind and incapable of 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 intersect outside of school and don't look what the other would expect. These seemingly opposing poles become friends and share a side they have never shown anyone before.
