When it aired in early 2021, ‘Horimiya’ caught the globe by storm. The sweet love tale between two competing high school classmates wowed fans.
The anime series is based on Hiroki Adachi’s Hero manga series, which he wrote and drew under the alias Hero.
It’s about a popular lady and a geeky guy who have quite different lifestyles outside of school. They agreed to keep one other’s secrets hidden and fell in love along the way.
The anime series came to a decisive and happy conclusion, but fans are waiting for more of their romance narrative. So, will there be a second season of ‘Horimiya’? Here’s what we know thus far.
Will There Be a Season 2 of ‘Horimiya’?
Season 2 of the anime has yet to be renewed, and it may have a difficult time returning. The series’ narrative was wrapped up in the first season. There were no more cliffhangers or surprises to reveal. Because there is no more narrative to tell, the show’s well-rounded conclusion may indicate that it will not be renewed for a second season.
Aside from that, the anime adaptation followed the manga series’ narrative well. After the manga ended in March 2021 with the publishing of chapter 122, there is no more source material for a new season.
The last episode was based on the manga series’ final chapter, which depicted Katagiri Senior High School students’ graduation day.

‘Horimiya’ Season 2 Potential Release Date: When Will The Anime Return?
We already know that season 2 of ‘Horimiya’ may not be renewed. However, because the program has not been formally canceled, there is still a remote chance that season 2 may be produced.
The first season debuted on January 10, 2021, and ended on April 4, 2021, with 13 episodes. If the program is renewed for a second season, the earliest probable release date is now 2022 or 2023.
What Is ‘Horimiya’s’ Plot, And What Can Happen In Season 2?
The plot of ‘Horimiya’ revolves around Kyoko Hori, a beautiful and popular young lady, and Izumi Miyamura, an introverted and bashful young man. Although they attended the same high school, their socioeconomic position and attitudes are diametrically opposed.
Their personas in school, on the other hand, are carefully curated to mask who they actually are outside of the academic institution’s four walls. When he goes outdoors, the geeky Izumi dresses up in punk style, replete with earrings and tattoos. Kyoko, on the other hand, dresses down and looks after her little brother Souta.
Outside of school, the two meet paths, and after uncovering each other’s secrets, they resolve to keep the revelations hidden from their peers. The two gradually developed affections for one other as the tale progressed. They ultimately profess their love in the end, and their friends embrace and encourage their relationship. The two were seen graduating from high school in the series’ last episode.
If the program is extended for a second season, we may expect to see Kyoko and Izumi’s romance continue. The first season’s source material has already been depleted. If the anime is to be continued, it will have to come up with a fresh plot.
Official Trailer for ‘Horimiya’
As of this writing, the anime’s future remains unknown. We’ll leave you with the season 1 trailer to enjoy as we keep our fingers crossed. ‘Horimiya’ is accessible on Hulu, Netflix (only in Japan), and Funimation, in case you haven’t seen it yet (USA).
