“Everyone has a side of themselves they dont want other people to see.”

This manga is shounen with shojo feel and unexpectedly pretty good..

The Premise: Hori-san contrary to her appearance at school, is a makeup-free housewife (looks after her brother) at home.

In complete contrast to the gloomy and some-what boring image he maintains at school, Miyamura-kun styles his hair and shows off his piercings on weekends.

Due to a short series of events, they’ve found out about each others hidden sides and now have someone to share their secrets with.

So basically, it's a simple idea which happens to be portrayed in a lightly, funny and clever way without pretensions. A natural, everyday life story about two common guys (readers can actually relate to) whose only extraordinary trait is there's nothing really extraordinary about them except for some little quirks they can only feel safe to share with each other. Why I Like It: The reason why I like this is because of the characters in a shoujo like setting. The MC guy isn't a playboy, he isn't an asshole, he isn't arrogant, he isn't a know it all, neither is he really popular or treats the heroine like trash. He's down to earth and he doesn't go head over heels for the main heroine at first . I also like the fact that the heroine isn't whiny, is very human, and she doesn't go "Omg I love this guy," in the first chapter.

Plus, I definitely like the art and the writing. It's very clear and detailed at the same time.

What I Didnt Like: The relationship between characters are realistic and no over the top drama so far but something was missing. Maybe pacing is a bit slow, I dont know.

The Bottam Line:
“As long as you dont try to find it out, you may never see someone’s true self.”It's a typical shoujo manga but there is something, just something thats makes you want to read more about the characters. Horimiya is refreshing. It's rare. It's normal. It makes you feel 'at home'. I really do recommend giving it a shot.
