Who are you quoting?

It's truly not a mystery, it's a SoL show where people answer basic questions like "where did I put the keys?"
You can't still enjoy it if Kyoani SoLs are your thing, but a show for mystery lovers it is not.
>>
>>134048961
How is a show about mysteries not a mystery show?

Are you mistaking detective for mystery?
>>
>>134049003
>show about mysteries
Not all questions are mysteries.
Sometimes the characters act as if they were in a mystery show so that might trick you.
>>
>>134048854
Probably hyouka fags in denial about how shitty and boring Hyouka actually was.

>Not all questions are mysteries.
Elaborate.
>>
>>134049127
You don't need to get so autistic just because people enjoy things you don't.
>>
>people who don't know what "cozy mysteries" are
>>
>>134049223
I actually love Hyouka but the thing that people often say "in defense" of the show is that it's not a mystery show, as if being a mystery show is somehow detrimental to the quality of it, which is absolutely retarded.

It most definitely is a mystery show. Kanye Festival and finale are the only parts that don't put that much of an emphasis on the mysteries, maybe Valentines episode to an extent as well.
>>
The real mystery is life itself
>>
>>134048798
Hyouka literally has more mystery solving than Subete ga F ni Naru and Sakurako put together
>>
Hyouka is my favorite show but I really wouldn't consider it a mystery, but a SOL, since the main characters' interaction and development are the driving point of the series

Well I don't disagree with you.
>>
>>134049667
I agree that the characters are the main point of it, but that doesn't make it any less of a mystery. The characters spend majority of the time doing something that relates to the main mystery of the story arc. Whether it's casually talking about it or doing research about it.
>>
>>134049163
Are you a faggot?

That isn't a mystery, just a question. A question we all know the answer to.
>>
>>134049849
I don't really watch mystery series otherwise (other than some Detective Conan as a child), so i wouldn't really know how to categorize it either way, but yeah even if it was a mystery I wouldn't particularly care
>>
>>134049914
Sure, but none of the mysteries in the show were questions like that with a clear cut answer.
>>
>>134049620
Jesus, you people can really be deluded.
>>
Does Chitanda have autism ?
>>
>>134050139
no but you might
>>
>>134050172
How come ?
I'm curious.
>>
Were the mysteries really necessary? If they weren't important than could some other activity have replaced them?
>>
>>134050199
probably but seeing as the Novel did contain them I don't see a reason to cut them out
>>
>>134050009
Yeah they were.

The first "mystery" was literally "How did I get into a situation where I was in a room locked from the outside?" with the answer of "Someone locked you in".

That isn't a mystery, it's common sense.

Not to mention shit like the "book mystery", which is just "Why do people get this book?" followed by "because it looks nice".
>>
>>134050199
The mysteries weren't too important, but if they were replaced it would have to be replaced with something that could make Chitanda curious.
>>
>>134050290
That's a fucking wonderful way of dumping things down.

"How did this man die?", the officer asked.
"He was killed", deducted the detective.
>how was I locked in if you need the a key to do so?
>why, and by who, is this book being borrowed?
>what did my uncle say?
>how did the teacher mix the two classes
>what was the ghost?
>how did she intend to finish the script?
>who keeps stealing shit, and why?
>why was the teacher so fascinated by the helicopters?
>what was that announcement about?
>who stole the chocolate?

These are all of the questions with no clear answer (f.ex. "why is he eating?" "probably because he is hungry" would be a simple answer with a simple question and not a mystery at all). This makes them mysteries, even though some of the answers end up being simple.
>>
>>134048961
I fucking love Kyoani SoLs but I hated Hyouka.
>>
>>134050891
That's some bad taste.
>>
>>134050891
opposite way around here, i loved hyouka but hate most slice of life shows in general
>>
Hyouka is a masterpiece.
>>
I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure the stakes have to be a lot higher (murder, theft) for something to really be a mystery story. Hyouka is more like a SoL with mystery elements. Not that it even really matters.
>>
>>134054351
The character interactions were really weak in Hyouka, so it fails as a SoL.
Everyone agrees that Oreki and Chitanda are shit characters.
>>
>>134054351
mystery is not the same thing as detective.
>>
>>134054390
No they don't.
>>
People expected Hyouka to be a show about a highschooler solving grand mysteries and then it turned out to be a show which talked about how absurd such a setting would be. And then faggots go on /a/ to shitpost about how they got bored waiting for something to happen when the show from the start told them that nothing of that sort was going to happen.
>>
>>134054390
Go away.
>>
>The mysteries aren't the point!
>>
Why do people get so fucking anal about Hyouka's mysteries? In the first 15 minutes it tells you exactly what its going to be like. Yes, it is probably classified as a mystery series, but the mysteries are just plot devices there to flesh out and develop the characters and their relationships since that's the primary focus of the series.

Besides, if you aren't watching Hyouka specifically for it's visuals then you're approaching it wrong anyway.

I've seen almost 400 anime. Hyouka is still the most boring anime I have ever seen.

It's actually more boring than Lucky Star which is a feat for sure.

>>I-it's not a mystery! The mysteries aren't the point!

People who say this need a hard slap. Of course it's a mystery show, it's just that these mysteries are lighthearted and relatable as opposed to being the typical crime mystery route that people normally associate the mystery genre.

That being said, the bread and butter of the show is the focus on the thought process to analyze these simple mysteries to produce a solution. Like all genres, some people will like it, some won't. It's just a polarizing show, sort of like the Monogatari series.

But saying this show is garbage or BORING without any substance behind your posts is juvenile as you can get. You're not going to enjoy every piece of work under the sun so learn how to respectfully talk about the ones you don't.
>>
>3+ Hyouka shitposting threads in a day
This guy just doesn't give up.

>>134048961
You're a colossal fucking fag. I love mysteries and hyouka is one of the best I've read. At least as far as modern mysteries go.
>>
>>134054726
If you're watching hyouka for the visuals then you're doing it wrong. If you want kyoani visuals the only two worth watching is nichijou and euphonium

Fucking please. I won't argue Nichijou because it's most definitely KyoAni's most well animated series, but it isn't really comparable. And Euphonium looked nice, but it went a bit overboard on the effects and filters, had considerably more noticeable CGI and nowhere near the level of detail Hyouka did. It blew my mind when I noticed the second time I watched episode 17 that you can actually see the culprit committing the crime on screen before the reveal. But maybe I'm just blind and everyone else noticed it the first time.

Do you lack reading comprehension? I said that the way people watch Hyouka is as if they were reading Vagabond expecting a samurai manga with Fate-tier chuuni special attacks, and then went complaining on /a/ that it's about "boring" shit like life, talent and regrets.
>>
>>134057234
I meant "talk about", not "watch", silly mistake there.

Damn, it was a bad show.

You know, a few years down the road I think I've finally come to terms with how shitty Hyouka is.

From a production perspective I wonder if Hyouka is the most autistic anime ever made. Not talking about Chitanda but the attention to minuscule details. I remember when the BD comparison pics got posted here and it was all things like adding a faded number 0 to Oreki's lcd alarm clock, or correcting test questions on fake homework.
>>
>>134058579
>Putting effort into production is now autism
At this point autism is basically a compliment that means "you actually put effort into a thing and used your brain".
>>
>>134058941
I really hate that.
>>
>>134058941
This bothers me so much. People actually try to dismiss Nichijou by saying stuff like "they wasted their time doing really good animation", as if it's an insult.
Ugh.
>>
>>134050199
>>134050256
>>134050321
Since Oreki's whole this was being able to solve them, I don't really see how it could work without changing his character
