When it first aired in early 2021, ‘Horimiya’ caught the globe by storm. Fans adored the sweet love story between two rival high school students.
The anime is based on Hiroki Adachi’s Hero manga series, which he wrote and illustrated under the alias Hero.
It chronicles the lives of a popular girl and a nerdy boy outside of school. They made a commitment to keep one other’s secrets hidden and fell in love along the way.
The anime series ended with a decisive and happy ending, but fans are eager for a sequel. Is a second season of ‘Horimiya’ in the works? This is what we know so far.
Horimiya’s Season 2 Release Date: When Can The Anime Return?
We already know that ‘Horimiya‘ may not be renewed for a second season. However, because the show is not officially canceled, there is still a remote chance that season 2 may be produced.
The first season debuted on January 10, 2021, and concluded on April 4, 2021, after 13 episodes. If the show is renewed for a second season, the earliest probable release date is 2022 or 2023.
What Is ‘Horimiya’s’ Plot And What Can Happen In Season 2?
The plot of ‘Horimiya’ revolves around Kyoko Hori, a beautiful and popular girl, and Izumi Miyamura, an introverted and bashful young man. They attended the same high school, yet their socioeconomic status and attitudes are diametrically opposed. Their personalities at school, on the other hand, are carefully cultivated to conceal who they truly are beyond the four walls of the academic institution. When he is outside, the nerdy Izumi dresses up in punk style, replete with earrings and tattoos. Kyoko, meanwhile, dresses down and looks after her younger brother Souta.
After uncovering each other’s secrets outside of school, they pledged to keep the information hidden from their classmates at school. As the story progressed, the two began to have feelings for one another. They finally profess their love at the end, and their friends embrace and encourage their partnership. They were seen graduating from high school in the series’ last episode.
If the program is renewed for season 2, we may expect to see Kyoko and Izumi’s relationship continue. The source material for the first season has already been depleted. If the anime is to be continued, it will need to come up with a fresh story.

You now know who delivered an emotional performance. However, if you have anything to add, please do it in the comments section.
Given that the first season of Horimiya covered the entire story of ‘Hero,’ it’s difficult to predict what will happen in Season 2 without an official announcement from the production team.
Several chapters of the manga, however, were omitted from the series. We may safely expect the last parts to focus on Hori-brother san’s and Kyoko and Izumi’s future, which may culminate in events similar to those in Season 1.

As of this writing, the anime’s future is unknown. While we keep our fingers crossed, we’ll leave you with the first season trailer to enjoy. If you haven’t seen ‘Horimiya,’ it’s available on Hulu, Netflix (only in Japan), and Funimation (USA).
