Theme Songs & Release Date Revealed in New “Horimiya-piece” Promo

Horimiya: The Missing Pieces

Horimiya: The Missing Pieces is complete and ready to tell you all about the latest happenings, such the school trip to Kyoto and the sports festival. A supplementary volume of ‘Horimiya’ with four new chapters and an additional one written by HERO himself was announced only a few weeks ago.

There will be a new volume and an anime in July, and the release date for the anime has officially been confirmed.

A brand new video and image for “Horimiya: The Missing Pieces” were posted on Friday on the series’ official website. Both of the anthems are included in the video, and the release date of July 1 is also announced. The anime will be simultaneously shown on Crunchyroll.

The teaser features extensive animation stills, most of them are from the anime’s coverage of the sports event. Yuki, Sakura, and Remi all have pom-poms in their hands and appear to be having a discussion about their next cheerleading routine. Miyamura stands up and yells, “Hori!” as he watches Hori compete in a running race. Give It Your All!

The first thing you’ll notice is the finale anthem “URL” by Ami Sakaguchi playing in the background. In the second part, we get a sneak peek at Omoinotake’s “Shiawase” (Happiness), the opening theme song.

The original cast from the 2021 anime series is back together again, and Daisuke Namikawa has been cast as Takeru Sengoku, Kakeru’s father.

In Japan, the rerun of “Horimiya” has been airing from April 22. On June 6, BS11, Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, and Gunma TV will all air episodes 10 through 13 simultaneously.

CloverWorks, who produced the previous season, is also back at the helm for this one. The core group consists of:

Would they consider converting the next chapters from the bonus volume into the anime, given that the anime will have original content? If so, it would set a record for the quickest adaption of a chapter.


HERO is the creator of the manga Horimiya san to Miyamura kun. Horimiya is the name of the anime based on the manga, which has also spawned six OVAs.

Kyoko Hori is the smart and popular girl in school, in contrast to Miyamura’s reticence and melancholy. They each have their own hidden agenda.

Miyamura is constantly trying to hide his piercings and tattoos, while Hori has trouble taking care of herself and her younger brother, Souta. As they learn more about one another, they get emotionally close to one another.
