MBS announced that it is producing a live-action movie and a live-action series based on the Horimiya manga! The film will premiere in Japan on February 5. The TV series, on the other hand, will premiere on MBS and TBS on February 16. Both productions will have the same cast, with Ōji Suzuka and Sayu Kubota starring as main characters.
You can see the visual for the Horimiya live-action series below:
In case you don’t know what Horimiya is you can read the synopsis below:
A sweet “aww”-inspiring tale of school life begins!!
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!

Horimiya is also getting an anime adaptation in January. Studio CloverWorks (The Promised Neverland, Darling in the FranXX, and Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) is responsible for production. We can’t wait for both anime adaptation and live-action series to premiere!
