  • Second Time Viewing and Still Great
    I first saw this maybe a year ago. It was an amazing story from beginning to end. It has strong character development and solid writing. Even watching Hyouka a second time, I found that it holds up well. I still wish there was more, but I guess that is always the hallmark of a favorite.

  • Sweet and refreshing
    This anime was sweet and interesting until the end. Every episode was well written, the characters were given the opportunity to grow as well as the relationships. Would have liked a bit more romance but I'm just a sucker for romance. The mystery was well done and really went into depth. Super refreshing, I'm looking forward to more.

  • A classic in the making. One of KyoAni's best works.
    I'm not going to say a lot about this, simply because I don't really know what to say. Initially, I didn't think that this would be for me. But I gave it a chance, and everything about it immediately pulled me in. It has so much to offer, and pulls it off beautifully. The comedy is never dull, and the mysteries are all incredibly well thought-out. It's a very well made think-piece. But ...

  • Fun Mystery Slice of life
    I can sort of say that the monogatari series is similar to this, in a way. It isn't really mystery, but there is a lot of logic behind each incident and a lot of symbolism. This anime seems to be the only anime that became what I expected, mystery slice of life. One thing I did get wrong before I watched it though, was the main character. It sounds a bit like Oreki's edgy at first when I hear ...

  • A beautiful work we can all appreciate
    This anime contains all sorts of tidbits that essentially make up the stunning work that is Hyouka. Many of its design choices are filled with love and purpose, from trivial interactions, to gorgeous, heartfelt animations. Character development is carefully paced, and characters have levels of depth we can appreciate. Don't mistake this anime for just a "mystery anime." Because it's so much more ...

    For Critical Thinker
    Solid anime, and for those who really like logical thinking and deduction, it's a good mind stretcher.

    It's Kyoani... but hard to recommend
    Don't have much to say. I just want to be real here...

    Visuals are great. Story is pretty good at times.... but my gawd... Is Chitanda annoying. Most definitely in my top 5 most annoying characters along with Iok Kujan (Iron Blooded Orphans) and Matou Shinji (Fate Series). She's like Haruhi dialed up to 19 but not in a good way.

    Expecting to get some thumbs down hah (Edit: 22/25 thumbs ...
