When ‘Horimiya’ aired earlier this year, it shook the world. Fans were smitten by the sweet love tale between two teenagers from different high schools.
Hiroki Adachi, who goes by the nickname Hero, wrote and drew the manga that inspired the anime series.
There is a lot going on outside of school for this popular lady and a geeky guy. Love blossomed as a result of a pledge to keep each other’s secrets secret.
However, fans are expecting a continuation of their romance journey in the anime series. So, will there be a second season of ‘Horimiya’? Here’s what we know thus far.
Horimiya Season 2
The anime has yet to be renewed for a second season, and it may have a difficult time making a comeback. The series’ storyline was wrapped up in the first season. There were no cliffhangers or surprises that remained to be divulged. This might signal that the show will not return for a second season since there is no more narrative to cover.
In addition, the anime adaptation also kept up with the manga’s storyline. After the manga ended with the publishing of chapter 122 in March 2021, there was no further material for a new season.
Last but not least, the series finale was based on the final chapter of Katagiri Senior High School’s manga and included the school’s graduation ceremony.
Horimiya Season 2 Plotline
“Horimiya” revolves around Kyoko Hori, a beautiful and well-liked girl, and Izumi Miyamura, a quiet and reserved man. There is a stark difference in socioeconomic class and mentality between the two. However, their on-campus personas are carefully crafted to mask their true selves from the outside world. During the day, Izumi dresses up in a punk manner, replete with piercings and tattoos, while he is out and about in the world. Kyoko, on the other hand, is dressed down and tends to her little brother, Souta.
After learning about each other’s secrets outside of school, they made a pact to keep them a secret from the rest of their peers. The two gradually became romantically attracted to one another as the narrative progressed. In the end, they confessed their feelings for one another, and their friends were happy to embrace and support them. The two were shown graduating from high school in the last episode of the series.
Season 2 of the sitcom will very certainly feature more of Kyoko and Izumi’s romance. The primary material has already been exhausted in the first season. If the anime wants to continue, they’ll have to come up with a fresh plot.
