Manga Review: Horimiya, Volume 6, by Hero and Daisuke Hagiwara

Rating (Out of 5): ~4.5
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: January 2017
Volumes: 10+
Spoilers?: Very light.
Volume: 1. 5. 7.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Connect, come together, and the world will change for the better one day at a time.

Seeing Miyamura and Hori together every day feels natural. They play around, long for each other, and even get into fights on occasion. What will happen as their bitter, sweet, and acidic school life continues?


There's a lot of side-character interactions in this volume. We get to see the romantic drama around Tooru, as there are two girls who like him and neither will tell him. I really liked seeing Yuki's reactions, the way she stayed quiet even when she didn't like it. I understand her, in a sad way.
We also got to see a bit of Sengoku and Remi, and we see that they have quite an interesting relationship—they work in an odd way, taking care of each other.
Then there are all of the Hori and Miyamura moments. We see Hori reacting to Miyamura's hair growing longer again, and we see her attempting to act girly because he hates horror movies even though she loves them. We get a fun scene where Souta's friends mistake them for his parents.
The best moments, though, are when they have a quiet, sexy little scene together. And when Miyamura is confronted by his school bullies, and Hori gets supremely protective and violent. That's fantastic. I do kind of wish we got to see more of those scenes, though, instead of just the before and the aftermath.
Pretty much, I am obsessed with this series. I love it and can not get enough.
