What's wrong with this show?
>>
>>123010513
It had a lot of up and downs.
The ups where Oreki solves the mystery in less than 30 seconds and Chitanda being cute were really great
The downs where the mystery is just starting out/very slowly unfolding and Oreki being lazy as fuck were mind-numbingly boring.
>>
>>123010615
I really liked the show but I agree that when the mystery got really long and winding the show was at its lowest.

And that's because I like it when shows have an over arcing mystery.
>>
Only thing wrong is there is no official English release that I can buy.
>>
>>123010513
The fake confession.
>>
>>123010856
Left my balls an unimaginable shade of blue.
>>
>>123010721

I feel like Hyouka could have benefited from having a mystery that lasted the whole show, while also having smaller mysteries throughout rather than being segmented. I thought that was how the Chitanda's uncle one was going to go.

>>123010818
I really want to buy Hyouka too.
>>
>>123010513
The first 7 episodes sucked. Once you get into the movie arc its great.
>>
Over-dramatic and the ending was shit.
The anime is overall good though.
>>
It's a fucking snorefest.
>>
>>123010948
I liked the ending, everyone was cute.
Oreki got some pink in his life.
>>
There's no second season.

No second season and not enough Empress.
>>
>>123010924
I thought the mystery of Chitanda's uncle's fate lasted a suitable length of the show.

Though perhaps people would be less prone to calling it slow/dull if Oreki had a Moriarty style antagonist.
He solved mysteries for Chitanda cause he was compelled by his attraction to her. If he had an anti-Chitanda who he felt forced to solve the mysteries they presented/created out of spite.
>>
>>123011243
I actually thought it works better how it is and not some cat and mouse mystery series. I do not want it to become Spiral.
>>
>>123011303
I never got into Spiral.
>>
Boring shit.
>>
>>123011228
The Empress needed more screen time.
>>
Does there end up being any actual conflict or is this just Japanese Scooby Doo? I'm about 8 or 9 eps in and its cool but a little dull.

I getcha. I went in expecting something Haruhi-tier to happen but just got something light hearted. Not exactly bad, but I had to put the show down for a while to re evaluate my expectations.
>>
>>123011455
Agreed. I enjoyed the show. I thought it could have ended on a larger note, but the subtly of it was kind of nice.
>>
>>123010513
It tries to make the mundane interesting and sometimes it fails.
>>
When it comes down to it is an arm-chair mystery. Its cozy and light, not a very popular genre.

Most mystery fiction is usually combined with some other element. Such as crime(murder, theft), political intrigue, the supernatural or heavier elements of comedy.

Hyouka, which I enjoy, doesn't have very high stakes. Even with the mystery surrounding Chitanda's uncle, we never meet him and we only learn about what happened second-hand. And though the mysteries are fun there would be no lasting effects if they went unsolved.
>>
The only thing I really felt was needed was one more longer arc between the cultural fest and the ending. Maybe if they stretched valentines day out into two or three episodes it would have worked. It just felt like the pacing was off having the last stretch be all stand alone episodes. The last one was a great way to end it, though.
>>
>>123012328
The fourth book was a long arc. I wouldn't call those stand alone episodes at all. They all work together so that Oreki realizes how 'untouchable' Chitanda is given her socioeconomic status, whether they're locked together at the festival or she is in full on regal makeup and wear while he is but a lowly onlooker, it's all to build the doubt in Oreki's head and what causes him to not confess at the time. It also builds up events in the 5th book.
>>
I want to slap Chitanda Eru.

Where are you reading the books? The sites I frequent never seem to have anything after the cultural festival.

Novels worth a read?
>>
>>123013262
If you can read them, then I'd say so.
>>
>>123010513
The worst part about this show is that we'd have gotten a second season or movie by now if the author wasn't lazy
>>
>>123013302
Haven't read any novels in nip for a while, so I might give them a shot. Novel 4 is where the anime finished out?
>>
>>123013314
Give him gaijin money possibly a blowjob and maybe, just MAYBE, he'll get around to it.
>>
>>123013349
For the most part yes. The anime was a rather thorough adaptation, so you can probably head straight to book 5 if you've seen the anime.
>>
>>123010513
Hyouka was like half most boring shit I've ever watched in my life and half 10/10 masterpiece truly a work of art.
>>
>>123013387
Kk, thanks for the help.
>>
>>123013037
The 5th book is being translated here, although it seems they haven't done anything since July
http://hyouka-rangers.tumblr.com/tagged/trans:%20kotenbu%205
They recently answered a question on the main page of their blog, so hopefully that means they're still working on it.
>>
>>123010924
There is an overarching mystery and her name is Tomoe Oreki.
>>
The only good part of this show is the manipulated bitch from the drama club and she's only like 5% of the show. why
>>
>>123010513
It's boring and pretentious.
>>
>>123014798
I'm just wondering how unintelligent do you need to be to find something like Hyouka pretentious? It blows my fucking mind that people use this as a criticism for this show.
>>
>>123011303
Spiral was great anon, but you're right that this show was not in the same vein.
>>
I didn't find anything wrong with it.

All of the characters are immediately likeable and that makes it easier to want to see their character development and growth over the series.

The mysteries are only there to get each classmate to interact with one another.
>>
It was basically House.
>>
>>123010513
This is a trick question, right?

Hyouka literally did nothing wrong.

Chitanda makes the whole show shit.
>>
>>123017035
Agree, she is boring and stupid. They should make her a side character instead.

I disagree. I think shes funny.

I loved it. Honest to god might be my favorite Kyoani show. Can't believe people think its boring.

I guess it was training wheels before they had the strength to unleash their ultimate OTP weapon later. Now that they've confirmed there is power to be had in such things, maybe they'll never fear again.

I agree. A couple of the episodes worked together as a nice conclusion, but they had a few too many episodes that could have been BEFORE the festival arc that they put after instead.

Dunno what you consider elaborate but take a look yourself. 170 pages per book.
Worth a buy in my opinion.

Why can't Japs write normal friendship between males? Why it always turns in some sort of hidden homolust?

Like if they actually include important scenes and the amount of comments and such, but that looks pretty good. I like how they include the respective storyboard at the bottom.
