Horimiya: Season 2 – Everything You Should Know (UPDATED) 

The webcomic is our only hope


Horimiya: Season 1 left things on a pleasant note as Hori and Miyamura both confessed their feelings. The last episode tied up other loose ends and the pair later graduated from high school. It was everything the fans had been asking for in a romance anime, and the series was so much fun to watch that a second season of it wouldn’t be all that bad.

CloverWorks hasn’t yet renewed the series, so sadly, Horimiya: Season 2 isn’t something you should expect to see any time soon. Plus, the anime adapted all of the manga, so if the anime ever returns, it’ll likely be an original story or something similar.


When Is Horimiya: Season 2 Coming Out?

UPDATE: Horimiya: Season 2 still hasn’t been officially confirmed, but there is a new tie-in anime coming. The new part is titled “Horimiya: The Missing Pieces” and will be released in July 2023. It will include scenes that were in the manga but we’re skipped in the original anime due to limitations, so it isn’t a sequel.

ORIGINAL STORY: As Horimiya: Season 2 is unfortunately not in the works, there’s no release date to look forward to. The first season had apparently wrapped up the entire manga’s plot in its 13 episodes, so as there’s no source material remaining, chances are strong there might not be a continuation.

Hori and Miyamura graduating from high school was where the manga’s last chapter, chapter 122, ended. For the anime to continue, CloverWorks or whichever studio lands the project will have to make something original. That will certainly take some time, and because of that, expect to wait a few years before Horimiya: Season 2 gets announced.


What Is Horimiya: Season 2 About? (Spoiler Alert)

The anime followed the same plot as the manga, and while it did miss out on a handful of content, the story now stands completed. The Horimiya manga is actually based on a webcomic by the creator Hero. In comparison to the webcomic, the manga only covers about 20 percent of the entire story.

Horimiya: Season 2 could adapt the webcomic Hori-san to Miyamura-kun Omake. In the webcomic, we see a lot more after the ending of the manga which includes Hori and Miyamura getting married. They later have a son named Kyouhei Miyamura. While the manga may have finished, the webcomic continues to be published by the author, so there’s a bright chance that we may indeed get a second season of the anime adapted directly from the webcomic.


Which Studio Is Making Horimiya: Season 2?

Horimiya: Season 2 will likely be animated by CloverWorks. The visuals were one of the most solid things in the anime’s first season, they fit in perfectly with the mellow tone of the story, so naturally, we shouldn’t be seeing a change in production.

CloverWorks is known for animating Spy x Family, My Dress-Up Darling, and The Promised Neverland, all of which have the best-in-class audiovisual design. Likewise, if Horimiya: Season 2 lands in their lap once again, it’s a win no matter what way you look at it.


Where Will Horimiya: Season 2 Be Aired?

On release, the first season of the anime wasn’t on most streaming services, but after a few months, the series was made available to watch online practically everywhere. Judging from these developments, Horimiya: Season 2 should be available on Funimation, Hulu, Crunchyroll, and even Netflix when it releases.

For now, the renewal of the anime is in a very tricky place. The source material exists but as a webcomic, accordingly, CloverWorks will have to draft out plenty of original animation content to continue the plot. All this is entirely possible, however, it’s something that’ll require more time than most anime usually take, so patience will be a virtue for fans waiting for Horimiya: Season 2.
