In case you aren’t sure whether it’s for you, please also read the synopsis:
Kyouko Hori is smart, attractive, and popular. On the other hand, her classmate, the boring, gloomy Izumi Miyamura tends to get painted as a “loser fanboy.” But when a liberally pierced and tattooed (not to mention downright gorgeous) Miyamura appears unexpectedly on the doorstep of secretly plain-Jane homebody Hori, these two similarly dissimilar teenagers discover that there are multiple sides to every story…and person!
To repeat, the anime version of “Horimiya” begins in just about 3 hours (January 9).Funimation will be streaming it. It’s another show you shouldn’t sleep on (if you like romance/comedies)!
