I have already talked quite a bit about how much I love this series. There is no other series that can replace Horimiya in my heart and nothing even comes close to the experience it delivers. And that is why it should come as no surprise that Horimiya Piece is among my favorite anime of this season.
Yes, I am biased but I’m only human, I am allowed to have my biases and opinions. And don’t worry, unlike the last time I talked about the series, I will try to give some genuine reasons as to why I love it so much.
So welcome back to another mid-season review and today we are talking about… well, you already know. So let’s get started right away.
What do I think of Horimiya Piece?
So, starting off, the plot lacks continuity like the original series. You know, since this is a collection of all the side stories from the manga that didn’t make it into the original anime. So a lot of the time, you’re left to figure out what event happened at what point in the main story. So I strongly suggest watching the original anime once again before jumping into Piece. That will help you keep the narrative together better.
Once you have a general idea of the timeframe though, the stories themselves are engaging as hell. They’re entertaining, they show us different perspectives of the characters we know and love. We even get a few new characters that originally weren’t in the anime. A lot of new character interactions. Most of the time, it is a comedy but sometimes even within the comedy, this anime can make you shed a tear or two. This perfect balance of comedy and touching moments is what makes this anime click for a lot of us.
We also get a good amount of character development in this series. Since we spend a good amount of time away from Miyamura and Hori, the side characters get more time. And because of that we see certain sides of them we didn’t know existed. We knew Sengoku and Hori were childhood friends but we finally see how chaotic their pairing is. Also, we get to see that their dads hate each other lol. We get to Iura’s little sister and her annoying friend. These character moments never fail to bring a smile to your face.
That is all for now. Once again, my initial rating for Horimiya Piece of 10/10 remains unchanged just because of how much I am enjoying it. Even though this is a sideshow, CloverWorks still has some great animations in this. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
