This story begins with Hori-san, the bright bubbly high school girl. She's popular, pretty and the all-round perfect student that cannot put a foot wrong at school.
Miyamura-kun is a boy in class who is a bit of a loner, shies away from making friends and tries his best not to be noticed. But when they are out of school it is a whole different ball game.
She becomes dowdy, domesticated and plain as she watches over her little brother Souta and keeps the household ticking. Miyamura-kun on the other hand is covered in tattoos and piercings which he hides at school so people aren't intimidated by him or expelled from school. They meet through Souta and their friendship begins.
I super love this manga (even though I have only read the first two in the series), and I cannot wait to see read the rest of them. I really like how their personalities are different to what their perceived everyday stereotyped characters are and also the mystery that surrounds Miyamura back story. Cute and light, it is a joy to see their relationship blossom (yes it’s a bit fluffy but don’t let that put you off) and them slowly uncover who they really are.
