People say that the youthful days are always bittersweet, but maybe it’s just bitter?
Kyouko Hori is a flashy high school girl, who, despite her ostentatious appearance, excels in academics and has a family-loving character. Izumi Miyamura is a bland high school boy, who, despite not wanting to stand out in class, secretly wears piercings outside of school and has a large body tattoo.
One day, Miyamura finds Hori’s little brother injured and helps him back to Hori’s house, where the relationship between Hori and Miyamura begins with Hori’s discovery of Miyamura’s secret. (myanimelist.net)
Hori-san to Miyamura is an OVA aired on September 26, 2012 to March 25, 2015. It has 3 episodes and can be classified as a comedy, romance, school (or slice of life), shounen anime.
Even though a lot of negatives reactions appeared, I still like it. I watched it last night (shh, it’s a secret) as a response to the challenge made by MAP admins (myanimelist), called MAP marathon.
I am happy that I chose to watch it because it is a sweet story born between two teenagers, which, apparently. have nothing in common.
Friends… Is this what friends are like?
The graphics are simple, making you think about good ol’ days. I like it because even though Hori-san to Miyamura is a new anime, it kinda looks like an old cartoon (but we all know that animes aren’t cartoons 😡 ! ).
The plot is not complex, showing you the sweet days of the highschool’s life. Friends, classes, family, secrets. Of course, the action centers on the 2 MC (main characters). I enjoyed it because it doesn’t have filler episodes. It’s just short and beautiful.
The characters are 100% realistic. You can find an Izumi Miyamura or a Kyouko Hori if not in every class, then in every high school, at least. You can easily fall in love or attach to them, as well as I did with Miyamura, the introvert (hmm) guy.
It’s music is nostalgic, simple, even childish.
Yoshikawa: “Ah, it’s Tooru!
Hori-san: “Good morning!”
Tooru: “Oh… I’m a heartbroken right now!”
Hori-san: “At least, say good morning!”
Better art doesn’t mean better anime. More episodes aren’t better than a short anime.
One episode of Hori-san to Miyamura and… you’re done! xD I really hope you’ll watch it too!!
