What Will Season 2 Of Horimiya Be About?
The story of Horimiya revolves around a gorgeous and popular Kyoko Hori and the introverted and shy guy Izumi Miyamura. The two went to the same high school students, but their social status and attitude are poles apart. However, their personalities at school are consciously curated to hide who they truly are outside the four walls of the academic institution.
The nerdy Izumi leads a more adventurous life and dresses up in punk style, complete with earrings and tattoos when he is outside. Meanwhile, Kyoko dresses down and takes care of her younger brother Souta. The two cross paths outside school, and after discovering each other’s secrets, they vow to conceal the truth from their classmates at school.
As the story towards, the two eventually develop feelings for each other. Towards the end, they finally confess their feelings, and their friends accept and support their relationship. In the final episode of the show, the two were seen graduating from high school.
