“Horimiya” will be reissued with a full anime in a matter of weeks, which we will know under the name of “Horimiya -piece-“. Is it a sequel? No, it’s an anime that basically will adapt manga chapters that were NOT included in the first anime, but… what if there were even more chapters of the “Horimiya” manga on the way? Because that is what has been announced recently, although it does not seem that it will be something that will last too long.
Horimiya’s manga will publish new chapters this summer
In order not to confuse anyone, this is exactly what has been announced regarding the return of the “Horimiya” manga (via Manga Mogura):
The main announcement is as follows: Horimiya’s manga will return to action with new chapters for 3 issues of Monthly G-Fantasy magazine, beginning with the one published on July 18, 2023. 😍 On the other hand, it has also been announced that on the same July 18th a volume 17 will be released Horimiya’s manga, which will receive the name of ‘A piece of memories‘, and which will have two functions: pick up these new chapters which will be published soon, and add even more extra content to the franchise (yes, in this case it has NOT been specified what this content will be). 😮 Ultimately, it has been confirmed that a special edition of volume 17 of the manga will be released that Will Include Hagiwara Daisuke’s Third Twitter Illustration Book, the cartoonist for Horimiya’s manga. 🤨

The truth is, it makes all the sense in the world that this volume 17 of the manga has been planned, because after all the anime of “Horimiya -piece-” also premieres in July. Considering the title of the volume, it seems that as the anime ‘piece’ will be based on telling a series of different short stories. Because yes, the main story of “Horimiya” is more than finished, but in a slice-of-life romance like this there is always room to add little stories.
