Manga Review: Horimiya, Volume 5, by Hero and Daisuke Hagiwara

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: October 2016
Volumes: 10+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 3. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Hori and Miyamura are now officially a couple, and everyone knows it. But not everything's coming up roses for Miyamura, who's worried that people are talking about Hori behind her back. When his anxiety about being Hori's boyfriend reaches fever pitch, Miyamura drastically changes his look, which changes everyone's opinion of him all at once...


We meet a new character in this volume who poses as a challenge for Miyamura. It's an underclassmen, and she's in love with Hori. This causes quite a lot of frustration and competition for Hori's attention. Miyamura and the girl end up forming a neat understanding, though, something to bond over.
I do appreciate the non-hetero relationship involved, as well as the side-characters' enjoyment.
Aside from that, there are several cute scenes between Hori and Miyamura. They're still getting their bounds when it comes to their romantic relationship, though they're getting closer and more comfortable together slowly. It's nice to see how fiercely protective they can get, as well.
This series is both adorable and super sweet and very hilarious. I love every bit of it, and am always excited for the next volume. I can't wait.
