    One of my favorites.
    Just wanted to tell you all to watch this now that it is available on CR. It is a visual and narrative spectacle. I wouldn't exactly call it a sleeper hit, as it does have its own following, but the availability of Hyouka has been a fun ride. I hope all of you enjoy!

    Sweet and Breathtaking
    I enjoyed watching this anime so much, and I believe that you will enjoy it just as much as I did. The music is great (especially the first opening and the second ed) , the animations are clever, and the characters are all lovable. You will not regret watching this anime trust me it's amazing.

    KyoAni's love letter to anime
    People say it's a "mystery" show, but the mysteries are just a vehicle for something grander and more complex. Director Takemoto's absolute masterpiece, a world standard for character development via skillful directing and lovingly laboured animation. Like it or not, if you don't watch this you're missing out.

    A Finely Crafted Masterpiece
    If you're one of those people that think, "Oh God, not another high school anime," please don't let that put you off. This is as rich and satisfying as anything out there.

    The animation is gorgeous, but the overall narrative is what truly shines. A lot of big themes are packed into deceptively small packages, whether it's a side story or one of the main story arcs.

    As with film noir, it's ...

    Another Wonderful Addition!
    This anime has a unique mystery style. Don't expect your typical crime, evidence, deduction, which makes this distinctly enjoyable.

    I loved the characters in this anime as well. I really want to see what happens with the main leads subtle romance, I do admit I wish there was more of it. I also enjoyed the side mains as they also added a unique quality to the anime and the story dynamic.

    So ...

    Must-Watch for Slice of Life Fans
    When I first watched this anime, I loved all the characters and the depth they were given. But after my initial watch, I started reading into analyses of each episode as well as whole arcs, and my mind was blown. There are so many details put into this show, including the audio and visual artwork. If you like slice of life anime, this is definitely a must-watch.

    I will add, as a side note, that ...

    Hyouka is a lighthearted slice of life, with a few mysteries to be solved.
    I'm going to rewatch this now! It's finally here!

    Hyouka to me is very special, it was one of the very first anime I watched that was grounded in reality that still didn't lose any spectacular visuals. The animation is stunning, incorporating different styles and moods for different effects.

    Lighthearted tone with a few mysteries to be solved.
    Little bit of romance and some drama ...

    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 ...

    The greatest of all time!
    This is without a doubt my favorite modern anime. The skill they use to turn everyday mundane life of high school in to compelling mysteries is masterful. I can not recommend this enough. Kyoani has gone above and beyond with the visuals and each story arc is compelling and the clues real. If you are good enough, you can solve the mysteries before they are revealed.
