Indonesian book publisher, Elex Media Komputindo, announced that it is publishing HERO & Daisuke Hagiwara’s Horimiya manga. The social media account of the publisher mentioned that the first volume is scheduled to be released in the fourth week of May 2017 at the price of IDR 22,500.00 (about US$ 1.69).

Horimiya is a manga series that was adapted from the 2008 webcomic by HERO, Hori-san to Miyamura-kun. It is currently being serialized on Monthly G Fantasy and published by Square Enix. It had also been adapted into OVA by the title Hori-san to Miyamura-kun -Shingakki- in 2012. 

The story revolves upon the meeting of two characters, Hori, who seems to be a popular high school girl yet a hard-working girl who do the chores at home, and Miyamura, who looks like a bookworm, but in reality, a friendly boy who is actually incompetent in studies with the addition of having tattoos and piercings in his body. The two may look different yet quite similar at some points.
