Horimiya Episode 13 Release Date and Time marks the end of the romance comedy series produced by CloverWorks that many have loved over the season with the story of the relationship of Kyoko Hori and Izumi Miyamura taking it to the next level and the relationships of their friends blooming as well.
Horimiya is from the pages of the manga series of the same name penned by Hiroki Adachi which ran for 9 years in circulation before coming to a close in 2021. It was a shōnen manga series published by Square Enix in the Gangan Comics and Yen Press in English under the Monthly G Fantasy. The manga series got its first release under the pseudonym Hero on the website of the author itself Dokkai Ahen.
Horimiya has been a captivating anime series that the series scored its very own live-action adaptation in film and a television drama. In the anime series, the relationship of Hori and Miyamura is one of a kind – it is beyond superficial; a love that transcends beyond the physical attraction between two people, it is built from within, one which accepts even the darkest of the shadows of one’s significant other.
What makes Horimiya even more interesting is that all the elements fall in the right place at the right time like how episodes start with a theme song that perfectly fits the theme of the series, a youthful beat and light vibe, Color Perfume of Yoh Kamimura.
As the last episode on the lineup arrives, the 13th episode, and with what has happened in the previous episodes, there seems to be some chance that a second season would happen or not. What’s sure is that Horimiya will be having two original video animations (OVA) this coming May 2021 to add to the already existing four OVAs released before.

In Horimiya Episode 12, Hithereto, and Forevermore, Hori invited Miyamura to join her, Sota, and Kyosuke, for their Christmas dinner but due to work, Miyamura refused as he would not be available that day, to the disappointment of both Sota and Kyosuke.
On the other hand, Tohru is talking to Sengoku and Iura as regards his feelings for Yuki and how, in reality, they are not really “dating,” he feels that he likes her company and that he feels comfortable with her and what they have. Meanwhile, Sengoku is scared to pay a visit to Remi as he is afraid of bugs.
Hori thinks about what the future holds for them after they graduate from high school. On Christmas day, everyone celebrated the holidays in relaxation together with their families and loved ones. Miyamura made sure that he sees Hori before reporting to work.
While they are walking home, Hori tells Miyamura that she wants to stay together even beyond graduation. The shock comes with Miyamura asking the hand of Hori for marriage. (A proposal, folks, it’s really happening aahhhh *fangirling*) Hori and Miyamura went on to celebrate the New Year together and they think and look about what happens in their future.
