The much-anticipated HoriMiya is increasing its cast by leaps and bounds, introducing nine new voice actors to the team in its latest batch of news! Plus Hori, Miyamura, and many more are the subject of a multifaceted key visual.
Based on the manga drawn by Daisuke Hagiwara (which itself is based on the original 4koma by HERO), HoriMiya unites an unlikely pair of students, each with a hidden side to themselves. The pair, and seven more characters from the series, are featured in the latest visual:
And speaking of groups of nine, check out the new list of voice actors joining the cast:

Yen Press, which licenses the HoriMiya manga in English, summarizes:
Admired at school for her friendly attitude and academic achievements, high school student Kyouko Hori has been hiding another side to herself. With her parents often away from home due to work, Hori also has to look after her younger brother and do the housework, leaving no opportunities to make friends and socialize outside of school. Meanwhile, Izumi Miyamura is seen as a brooding, glasses-wearing, otaku. In reality, he is a gentle person hopeless at studying. He also has nine piercings hidden behind his long hair and a tattoo along his back and left shoulder.
By sheer happenstance, Hori and Miyamura cross paths outside of school—neither looking as the other expects. These seemingly polar opposites become fast friends, sharing with each other a side of themselves they have never shown to anyone else.
HoriMiya kicks off in Japan on January 9, 2021.
