“Horimiya” is about Kyoko, a high school student. She is known to everyone in school as smart, pretty, and popular. Her classmate Izumi, on the other hand, is shy and very reserved. But when the two meet one day, they are amazed: Suddenly a pierced Izumi in punk clothes stands in front of an unstyled Kyoko!
