MBS announced that it is producing both a live-action film and a live-action television series based on Hagiwara Daisuke‘s Horimiya manga. The film will open first on February 5 in a one-week limited engagement, while the seven-episode series will premiere on MBS and TBS on February 16. Both Hori Pro productions will feature the same cast, with Suzuka Ōji and Kubota Sayu starring as protagonists Miyamura and Hori, respectively.
The manga is also inspiring a television anime that will premiere on January 9.
Masashi Ishihama (PERSONA 5 the Animation, From the New World) is directing the series at CloverWorks. Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, WATAMOTE) is supervising and writing the series scripts, and Haruko Iizuka (Ensemble Stars!, Children of the Whales) is designing the characters. Masaru Yokoyama (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Queen’s Blade: The Exiled Virgin) is composing the music.
Hagiwara launched the manga in Monthly G Fantasy in 2011 as a spinoff to HERO‘s Hori-san to Miyamura-kun four-panel school comedy manga. Square Enix published the 15th compiled book volume of the manga on September 18. Yen Press published the 14th volume on July 21.
The original Hori-san to Miyamura-kun manga has already inspired four original video anime (OVA) adaptations.
