Horimiya Season 2 - Will It Ever Happen?

A sweet high school romance anime featuring two teens with seemingly opposing personalities, "Horimiya" was well received by fans when it debuted in January 2021. The 13-episode anime is based on a web manga series that was initially written and illustrated by Hiroki Adachi under the name Hero and originally released on her website from 2007 until 2011. Daisuke Hagiwara eventually adapted the story and illustrated it as the popular manga series known as "Horimiya," which is published by Monthly GFantasy and serves as the basis for the anime.

Produced by CloverWorks, the series follows the burgeoning relationship between Kyouko Hori, a prim social butterfly who does well in school but who's also harboring a secret about herself, and Miyamura, a quiet and gloomy boy with no friends whose rough exterior hides a sweet and gentle heart. After a chance meeting early in the anime, they become friends and begin to share their secrets with one another, unlocking new sides of themselves in the process and laying the groundwork for a deeper romantic relationship.

The first season concluded in April with the pair's graduation, so many fans of "Horimiya" are now wondering if there will be a second season that picks up where it left off. We've gathered up all the information we could find about a possible future season. Here's everything we know so far about "Horimiya" Season 2.

Horimiya Season 2 hasn't been confirmed

A lot of anime is based on existing source material, and if you've watched the first season of "Horimiya," then you likely already know that the 13 episodes that were produced covered the entire story arc of the original manga, which includes 122 chapters. The season ends with the central couple's graduation and a happy ending that leaves no loose ends in need of tying up. So this seems to indicate that a second season of the anime is probably unlikely. And as it stands, there has been no indication from the show's producers that the anime will continue.

However, with 122 chapters of source material and only 13 episodes, it's obvious that "Horimiya" didn't cover everything that happened in the manga. Some of these chapters were covered via a short slideshow montage that concluded the anime, but it's still possible that additional episodes could dig into the remaining storylines that were left untouched. Unfortunately, as of this time, there has been no indication more episodes like this are on the way. So we must wait and hope that inspiration strikes soon.
