New review at Girls in Capes: Horimiya, Vol. 1

Slice of life shoujo is a weakness of mine — or what Jamila at Girl Gone Geek would call my “happy place.” Horimiya is a perfect happy place to go to when you need something sweet, simple, and cheering.

Though ostensibly about Hori and Miyamura’s struggles to keep their “secrets” hidden, the story focuses more on their relationship, as one might guess from the title.  A boy who’s in love with Hori notices that Miyamura is skulking around with her much more often; Hori’s best friend finds Miyamura in out-of-school mode at Hori’s house and develops a huge crush on “Hori’s older cousin.”

Read my review now at Girls in Capes.
