I just finished watching this, and it was really amazing.
Every individual episode was a masterpiece. However, the ending wasn't very impactful, nor was the anime as a whole either, in my opinion at least. It's almost as though it suffers from the opposite of what plagues so many shows, in which they try to have a fantastic and exciting ending, but the episodes on their own individually aren't as well crafted.
Aside from that, the animation and art were gorgeous, as well as the soundtrack being great of course.

What did you think of it?
>>
>What did you think of it?
>>
You summed up my thoughts very well.
I only finished it a few days ago and felt the ending was very weak, but in the end almost ironic. An entire show focused around detective work and discovering what may have happened ends without telling us what will happen? Fitting, at least, but disappointing.

Because of the visuals, right?
How shallow.

Watch more anime and lurk more.
>>
I absolutely loved it. I loved the characters, I loved the art, the soundtrack, the visuals, it was all 10/10. Each episode was a treat, and I appreciate that the story arcs didn't all follow the same pattern for how many episodes they run, and that they each contributed to the characters development in their own ways.

I agree that the ending didn't leave much of a lasting impression, though, and I'd love for it to get another 24 episodes.
>>
>>134010238
>Watch more anime and lurk more.
This. Watch Sword Art Online for a true masterpiece.
>>
If you didn't understand and enjoy the ending, then you didn't understand the show.

The ending is really powerful if you examine how much change has taken place for Oreki when acknowledges that he is actually infatuated with Chitanda while they're doing the display, and Oreki's imaginary confession with all the rose-colored imagery shows a huge shift in his perspective and M.O.

That imaginary confessions says way more than any explicit kissu would have. 2subtle4u.
>>
if you mean the ending, it only get until 4 of 5 novels, also the manga is really slow, so hopefully there is going to be a another season.

I can't believe there are people who can say with a straigth face that "every individual episode was a masterpiece", when in fact every individual episode was a massive snoozefest, that failed to grab my attention at all. I find it the perfect example of how NOT to make a show about mysteries.
>>
>>134010819
Try Ritalin.
>>
>>134010819
Because each episode was exciting, it had my attention the entire time, and it's the best way to make a show about mysteries.
The episode with mystery about the announcement with the student being called was exciting as fuck, and all they did was sit in a room for 22 minutes.
>>
>>134010528
I certainly understood it, and it was certainly enjoyable, but it just didn't feel that impactful. I think it's just because the story isn't finished yet. A kissu would have been ridiculous at this point in time, along with an outright confession as well.
Basically, it felt more like the halfway point, rather than the finale.
>>

Satoshi and Mayaka were well written, Oreki and Chitanda were a bit boring. Valentines was the best episode.

>>
>>134011555
Oreki was pretty nicely written as well. Didn't care for Chitanda much though.
>>
>>134011728
I won't say Oreki isn't likeable but he honestly felt Kirito-tier a few times with his deductions. I let it slide because his ridiculous deductive powers are used to develop Satoshi in a believable way though.
>>
>>134011555
Only Chitanda was a fat lot of nothing.
>>
>>134006991
You're wrong.

Most of was outright boring because the "mysteries" sucked. It was carried entirely but nice art and likable interesting characters.

And the understated ending implying an understanding or feeling between Eru and Houtarou that doesn't need words was the best part of the entire show.
>>
>>134009718
Oh wow. That's a great deal. Thanks for the heads up.

Kyoani's best from an art/animation perspective. Otherwise, extremely well developed characters in a setting that didn't fit them.

That's very possible.

It's a great show. My only real problem with it is that I don't think Chitanda stands very well as a character on her own. She's useful for representing Oreki's subconscious desires to abandon his apathetic ways, but as a "character" she's pretty flat compared to the rest of the cast. Mayaka a best.

I don't even know what to say, I watched it twice and was thoroughly engaged each time. Even though the mysteries were low stake they were usually presented in an interesting way and Mayaka ended up being one of my favorite female characters of all time.

After three years though I know it's impossible to convince the people who still hate it after all this time otherwise so I don't think there's anything more than personal taste here.

It's good and very beautiful on top of it. Movie arc is the most memorable for me. Unlike Chitanda who basically shoving her face every single time, Fuyumi puts Oreki on the edge, her way.

While the cases were mostly subpar, I loved the mysterious vibe they put in.

Not every episode is a masterpiece because at the very least that episode where Chitanda wonders why she got mad is complete dog shit. This is incontestable. The arc where they're trapped in the shed was fairly lame also. Bitch, just hide in the back while Oreki shouts for help if you don't wanna be seen with him, mystery solved.

Chitanda is not boring at all if you look beyound surface and pick up the details.

You get glimpse of REAL chitanda only in last episodes in her role of "representative of Chitanda family"
>>
>>134012222
Hyouka mysteris were all about characters. Each ark contributed to development of them and each mystery served purpose of insight into characters minds - even such mundane as "kimono in the inn".

Hyouka is masterpiece, since unlike Conan, Kindaich etc. - its cases are not technical,but psychological.

Just like Hanasaku Iroha is still the best PA Works show, so is Hyouka is a "show off" show for KyoAni.

I never understood why people thought this. It's a series that uses mysteries to progress and develop it's characters, and that's the ONLY reason for mysteries to be there.

>>134011123
What >>134012567 says. Media today has to cater to brainless americans, so everything has to be spelt out literally, or the viewers won't understand it.

>>134020953
Yes. Hyokua, Uchouten Kazoku and Kyousougiga are so fucking good.

>>134025140
they actully used camera-techiniques that even live-action stuff has stopped using. The layouts are probably the best I've seen for a show too.

>>134027036
I think Chitanda was good as well. Her characters personality symbolizes the life she has led, and will lead well. It's already planned out, and she knows it. So she finds interest in the smallest things, enjoys the small things, since she probably never will have the unknown and scary new life. Her role is set in stone. Unlike most the others in the show, who's life is yet to be uncovered. I think it makes sense for Chitanda to be a bit "underwhelming" as some anons claim.

>>134030339
I probably like Hyuoka arc the best. But I really enjouyed the singular episodes as well, like the haunted room, 10.5 and last episode, for example.
>>
>>134030450
nah the ending wasnt fantastic... i mean it wasnt bad because there was no real overarching plot and therefore no conclusion but it does mean that you end the show feeling unfulfilled about the relationships etc. it was a subtle ending but definitely one of the weaker parts of the show.
>>
>>134030724
Most similar story to Hyouka, by absolute margine is biblia koshodou no jiken techou. A LN in Japan that ranked 1st place in charts while ago.

Too bad it did not get anime, but live action only.

From existing anime, nearest would be Bungaku Shoujo
>>
>>134030801
well maybe but i was talking more about the feeling you get from watching the show.
>>
>>
>>134030654
that's cool but there's no other PA works show who looks as good as Uchouten. It's both more unique in its vision and more technically proficient (by far) than basically all of their other shows.

The story is not particularly illuminating but then same applies to all PA works. In fact it's more usual for them to put out super crappy derivative material, so Uchouten also wins here as it a least has some stuff to work with
>>
There are two Hyouka threads active right now with polar opposite opinions in the OP (probably by design) and they both have retarded positions. No valuable discourse can be had on the subject of Hyouka on /a/, period. And I'm convinced no valuable discourse on the subject of anime happens outside of /a/, so the show is dead.
>>
>>134031235
>It's both more unique in its vision and more technically proficient (by far) than basically all of their other shows.
Thats absolutely false. The PA Works "magnum opus" is Hanasaku Iroha. No other show from it even comes near in terms of budget and quality - as its anniverasy "show off" work of PA Works funded by local goverment.

Uchouten`s only real good thing is portrayal of Kyoto done very good. The story itself is meh, characters unlikable and overall feeling that its not genuine PA Works show, but paid sidejob as they do with Kei stuff - quite logical seeing director and series composition is not from PA Works.

So its basically inferior Tatami Galaxy, for Tatami Galaxy fans, only worth in filling the void for those who want more of TM since it does not live up to original.
>>
>>134031453
Okay, sorry if you didn't like it that much.

>>134031453
Hyouka is anime about "Classics". In case of Hyouka "Classic litterature club".

How do classics are determined and formed? There is only one criteria - Time.

Hyouka wasnt that popular when it aired. It gained popularity over time, getting big boost when BD rips were released and growing in popularity and discurse with every year, continuing this trend even now. Many "hyouka-fags" are new people that just watched it recently, and many will become later when they get to watch it.

This is how classics are made. The discurse about it can be polarized, but it does not change the fact that Hyouka, by now, is already a recognized modern anime Classic.

About how much other anime can be said the same? Even stuff like Madoka and Monogatari grow LESS relevant and popular wih time.

The only other one i can see grow with time atm is Kyousogiga.
>>
>>134031455
Eh, no. The other guy is right. Uchouten kazoku is their best anime because it doesn't have the typical glaring P.A. Works flaws.

>>134031455
>overall feeling that its not genuine PA Works show, but paid sidejob as they do with Kei stuff - quite logical seeing director and series composition is not from PA Works.
how can you be so sure of yourself while being so clueless at the same time
Yoshihara is a veteran i.g animator, and pa works is an i.g babby studio. Yoshihara is a tier above anyone directing at PA works and is connected through Horikawa. He has worked at PA for years while they were an i.g subcontractor on shows like GITS SSS or Moribito.

Uchoten is PA works' true prestige show. It took over 4 years to put out, due to (among other things) accomodating people like Toshiyuki Inoue to do extensive animation work in the show.

If your eyes are so bad they can't see how much better aesthetics and directing Uchoten has compared to whatever key/kyoani ripoff PA churn out by the numbers then you're hopeless. Iroha only looks particularly strong for the first few episodes, and the only real reason is Ando's involvement. Nothing in it can hold a candle to Inoue's scenes in Uchoten.

Now that I've thorughly dismantled your entire position I guess there's not much you can respond to. But try if you want, I'll be here laughing at you.

The amount of threads I've seen about that show since it ended, I'm sure I can count on my fingers.
I don't see it growing in popularity anytime soon.
>>
>>134031566
>kyousogiga

Can you name me an older anime that fell into irrelevance after airing and then many years later became popular for some reason? I just cannot see that happening for kyousogiga; it was just too boring, to sum it up in one word.

I know that shows like kyousogiga sometimes do well anyway, but if those types of shows do well the popularity is immediately obvious.

Kyousogiga was a "here i am" statement of new iconic director.

He made himself even more prominent with success of Kekkai Sensen, establishing his style to be identifiable alongside likes of Shinbo.

If he proceed to make more shows in this style, he`ll be as known as Ikuhara, Shinbo etc and thus people liking later works will look his earlier ones.
>>
>>134031838
He?
>>
>>134031838
she

also kekkai sensen is not nearly as eccentric and identifiable as ksg or even the precure movie.

if matsumoto goes in the direction of kekkai, she'd be called a sell-out. she should go in the direction of the ksg ona and search better opportunities for more out-there projects rather than trying to be a studio director trying to grab paychecks.
>>
>>134031744
So what you're saying is, we need to release a bunch of model toys of the characters and play a lot of reruns, and we'll revolutionize the genre that kyousogiga is - let's call it "Real Lame."
>>
>>134012222
You have no idea what you are talking about, you dingo.
>>
>>134031921
Kyousogiga`s purpose was to sell toys if you forgot.

All right anons, good arguments, you've convinced me it's possible. We'll see if the director can create anything good.

Maybe one day I'll try to watch Kyousogiga and find that I like it more, too.

I suppose Huouka is just one of those shows that have no majority concensus. A good number like it, a good number dont. Not gonna bother arguing with you lot. Loved it myself, hoping the race novel gets animated aloh with the new one not yet translated.

This, I've said this before but:

It stands out from the rest of PA Works anime because it's got a great, unique style, nice coloring(rest of PA anime has awful sterile coloring) and the characters actually look like they blend with the backgrounds.
And I don't only think it's their best anime, but their only good looking anime, visually.

The positive attitude of the show may have been the highest in the summer of 2013 but it was plenty popular when it was airing and ever since then it's just been people shouting at each other about how boring or not boring they found it.

>>134031575
Seconding this. You need to be really a casual to think that Uchouten isn't their best work.

What other shows can you think of that get a constant stream of discussion here without any material other than the anime episodes themselves (I'm disregarding the untranslated novels here because they're essentially irrelevant to 90% of the threads).

I mean stuff like [email protected] or Girls und Panzer get complimentary shit every two months to fill their generals.

>>134032293
I wouldn't really call it constant, most Hyouka threads die well under a hundred posts these days.

LEt me put it like this. I've tried watching Hyouka 3 times. The first two times I stranded 3 episode into it because I too found it boring.

The third time I decided to stick with it, because I atleast was curious to see where the characters would go. This time I finished it and now I agree with all the other people saying that this is a masterpiece and that it isn't boring AT ALL. It's fun, has characters that I like to watch interact (And this is what Hyouka is about, it's not a mistery anime, it's just a social SOL anime about these characters) and it looks fucking amazing.

In the end it takes a while to get into, because you need to warm up to the characters a bit, but once you're past that it's a very rewarding and enjoyable show. And I wish that there would be a decent ending somewhere int he future.

To back to Reddit, cancer. We don't need someone who haven't watched not even 300 titles here.

>>134032461
RDG was great. Wish there was second season, though seeing the sales chances are grim.

The reason /a/ overlooked RDG is that it aired at Nick at 480 quality, and proper releases were late so no one watched/discussed them. The books are very well written and anime was one of PA Works bests.
>>
>>134032676
Then follow your own advice. You are litterally equal to kid that tells Clannad is best KyoAni or Fate fags telling Ufotable is best anime studio.

My favorite show, One of the best to ever grace the industry.

You can tell Kyoani put all the effort into this because its fucking gorgeous along with the interaction between the group and how based Oreki turns out.

I really couldn't give a fuck about a romance between Oreki and Chitanda because it didn't feel like that type of show to me just because of how Oreki is and how needy Chitanda is.
>>
>>134032744
Mayaka but I like Chitanda as well.

Man Hyouka has a seriously high class cast of girls. Chitanda is nice and all but she's probably the least appealing girl in her own show.
>>
Eh, not the best show in hindsight but was worth checking out at the time. I've seen better, it's not a masterpiece by any metric.
>>
>>134032883
Their relationship felt pretty natural and they complement each other well. I like the relationship in Hyouka because the story and character interactions drive the story and the relationship develops in reaction to these things, instead of the relationship itself being the forward driving impetus of the show.

Oh yeah, I just remembered.
Did Chitanda's uncle being missing have any relevance outside of what was animated?
I thought it was going to lead somewhere since Oreki's sister was in India in the beginning, and then Sekitani Jun was revealed to have gone missing in India the 7 years ago.

But it never lead to anything.

>>134033711
I can't tell if you're being sarcastic because Satoshi and Chitanda have a really weak vibe for me but maybe you're into it?

Oreki is the Sun for Hyouka's solar system. His dynamic with each of the character is the primary appeal.

I'm especially fond of his dynamic with Mayaka. I like that hate friend thing they have going on.
