Now that the story is five volumes in and Hori and Miyamura are openly dating however, what’s next for the story? Given how inwardly focused the story has been so far — the story must have spent a third of it’s time so far at Hori’s home alone — it’s hard to imagine the story looking more outward for drama, beyond the quick vignettes of Hori and Miyamura’s friends and their own love stories. The manga hasn’t even particularly cared about the passing of time and can’t use that to create tension like other romance manga My Little Monster did. Progression requires that the story be grounded to something and, while the character drama in Horimiya is great so far, frankly you could swap out the setting for nearly anything else and retain the same story — a sign of an underdeveloped world.
The story did try to create a new wrinkle by introducing an underclassman who is determined to break up HoriMiya for her own means, although in the process ended up playing into an entirely different and tired cliche. If Horimiya is going to continue to rely on bland characters like her for future drama (she appears on the cover for volume six so she’s clearly not going away anytime soon) then it’s a bit worrying. This volume only had one other self-contained story and it’s about how Hori is mortified that her weight is the same as Miyamura’s (the two of them weigh just a tiny 48 kilos each) and how she starts almost-dieting — which also isn’t really funny! Hopefully in volume six Horimiya will pull itself and chart a plan for how it wants to handle two adorable, now dating, teenagers as the story continues.
