The very last episode of Horimiya: The Missing Pieces (a.k.a. Horimiya -piece-) will be here in only a few days. Ahead of its September 23 airing, a trailer for that last episode has been released. Here’s a teaser of what to expect!
The opening theme song is titled “Shiawase” (translated as “Happiness”) and performed by Omoinotake. The ending theme song is called “URL” and performed by Ami Sakaguchi.
Horimiya: The Missing Pieces debuted in July, and Crunchyroll is doing a simultaneous streaming of it, plus also offering a dubbed version.
The original Horimiya manga by Daisuke Hagiwara is published in America by Yen Press. The Horimiya: The Missing Pieces anime is all about parts of the manga which were not included in the previous 2021 anime adaptation. Yen Press gave this description for the manga:
At first glance, the ultra-popular Hori-san seems like a frivolous high school girl, but in reality, she’s plain, pragmatic, and family-oriented. On the other hand, the bespectacled Miyamura-kun comes across as an average, gloomy high school fanboy, but he’s actually an attractive young man who has a bad-boy streak and is covered in piercings and tattoos. When these two unexpectedly similar classmates have a random run-in outside of the classroom, a bubbly, sweet tale of school life begins!
The Horimiya manga began in 2011, being published in the pages of Monthly G Fantasy magazine (from Square Enix). It’s a completed manga series, consisting of sixteen volumes, plus an epilogue chapter that came out in 2021. It was created to be an adaptation of the manga Hori-san to Miyamura-kun by HERO. HERO was also involved by supervising Hagiwara’s work.
