Horimiya: The Missing Pieces (Japanese title: Horimiya: Pieces) isn’t really a sequel. Instead of continuing the story, it will simply adapt the parts of the manga that Season 1 missed. Hence the name “The Missing Pieces.” But hey, any new Horimiya content is welcome, right? If you’re excited about it, this Horimiya: The Missing Pieces episodes guide will help you prepare for each episode’s arrival.

Unfortunately for people waiting for an actual sequel, a true Horimiya: Season 2 seems unlikely. The manga already ended, and the anime covered it from start to finish, with some skipped parts in the middle. The anime producers have to wait for Hero, the writer of the manga, to make a sequel manga. Otherwise, it seems that Hori and Miyamura’s story has reached a happy ending.


Horimiya: The Missing Pieces Episodes Release Dates

Horimiya: The Missing Pieces episodes will come out every Saturday starting July 1, 2023. Sunday, for those living in Australian Central Standard Time (ACST). For the sake of consistency, this list will only include the Saturday dates.

The main website’s news about the DVD and Blu-ray releases reveals that Season 2 will have 13 episodes. Here’s when all 13 episodes are coming out.

Episode 1: The Journey Begins – July 1st, 2023

While short seasonal anime like Horimiya: Season 2 usually run smoothly, that may not be the case this time. On the news link above, they put out a disclaimer saying that the scheduled release dates and times may change. They claim it is due to “organizational reasons.” Hopefully, no breaks occur, but there’s no way to say for sure.


Horimiya: The Missing Pieces Release Times (Per Timezone)

It takes about an hour before a newly released episode reaches simulcasting services like Crunchyroll. With that in mind, here’s a list of the Horimiya: The Missing Pieces episode release times for several timezones.
