Behind every great high school romcom is an equally great student council, and Horimiya is no different!

The official Horimiya anime Twitter account released a third promo video for the upcoming series, featuring student council members Kakeru Sengoku, Remi Ayasaki and Sakura Kouno.

Nobuhiko Okamoto (My Hero Academia), M・A・O (Fire Force) and Reina Kondo (Dropout Idol Fruit Tart) were revealed as cast members for the trio, joining the ever-expanding cast of the anticipated Winter 2021 series.

But don’t put your calendars away just yet—it’s already been announced that a new visual and additional cast will be unveiled on November 23!

Synopsis (via Yen Press): At school, Kyouko Hori is known for being smart, attractive, and popular. On the other hand, her classmate, the boring, gloomy Izumi Miyamura, tends to get painted as a “loser fanboy.” But when a liberally pierced and tattooed (not to mention downright gorgeous) Miyamura appears unexpectedly on the doorstep of secretly plain-Jane homebody Hori, these two similarly dissimilar teenagers discover that there are multiple sides to every story…and person!

Masashi Ishihama (PERSONA5 the Animation) is directing the anime adaptation at studio CloverWorks (The Promised Neverland), alongside Takao Yoshioka (Your lie in April) on the script and Haruko Iizuka (Ensemble Stars) on character design. The series is set for a January 2021 premiere in Japan.
