The original Horimiya manga revolves majorly around the two titular protagonists, Hori and Miya, who live dual lives. Hori is the dynamic and popular girl of high school. On the first impression, she would seem like someone who goes to karaoke and lives a youthful life. However, out of school, she is a rather average girl who looks after her brother, cooks, dresses up messy at home, and enjoys horror movies.
Miyamura is her classmate who emits a gloomy aura. He has barely ever revealed his face as half of his face is covered with his hair. Furthermore, he sits alone and is often referred to as an Otaku. However, once out of school, Miyamura is a boy who has piercings and tattoos over his body, a side of him he keeps hidden.
Although the personalities of both the characters do not change, they have a whole new side that they discover on a chance meeting. As they get to know each other, they escape their inner demons and head on ahead to live a youthful life. Horimiya tracks the story of the two main characters and the people around them, exploring their youthful years and the different ways they experience love.
