Did you enjoy it?
>>
No.

The mysteries they solve aren't interesting. A lot of them are obvious; others are just dumb. The shows defenders will always say that it isn't about the plot--it's about the characters. These kinds of pretty looking KyoAni shows with no overarching plot appeal to some people, but I'm not really in that group.

It does look good and the characters are interesting. I just wish they would do interesting things.

just saw episode one

>holy shit
>the production value is off the charts
>>
>>100402275
The arcs were the best, the one-episode mysteries weren't as good.
I found the mysteries interesting once I got into the show, even if they're not about earth shattering events.
Was anyone actually able to guess the answers before Houtarou did? Most of the time my guesses were pretty off.
>>
>>100400679
No. I dropped it after a few episodes when I felt no desire to continue watching.
>>
Yes. It was fucking excellent. The pacing, soundtrack, animation, character design, DRAMA, and characterization were all off the charts. Mysteries were hit-or-miss, but they were just an excuse and not really a reason, so that's okay

Too pretentious in it's visual language.

It is literally the epitome of school club based anime.

Hyouga got so much better after you realize that everything post-Hyouga by KyoAni was shit.
>>
I couldn't bring myself to finish it once I found out it's like all other recent kyoani in that there is NO. FUCKING. ROMANCE.


WHY?

>Was anyone actually able to guess the answers before Houtarou did? Most of the time my guesses were pretty off.

No surprise either it was the cheapest trick and it wasn't able to solve the mystery until the very last end because the show hides important information from you or it were asspulls.

I loved it. Fuck /a/'s opinion. Oreki is too based.

at first i hated the concept of it. Whodunnit mysteries, but for trivial school problems? It was like making moe out of columbo

but it definitely won me over, even the Where's my cake episode, 8.6/10 had strong points

Just because there's no kissing and fucking doesn't mean that there's no romance. Read less hentai doujins.

Comfy as fuck. Have it on hold at the moment but have enjoyed what i've seen.

Anyone who says this shit is boring must have a pretty small attention span.

Probably the prettiest animation and attention to detail which is also very tasty for my eye balls too
>>
>>100403928
the show clearly doesn't obey Chandler's Laws.

I tried solving the mystery of the students' movie before they did, with just the movie itself but then boom additional info and cheap tricks.
I still like the mystery though

Well, I liked it and it was okay if they used the visuals to show the contrast betwee Oreki's mind and the world. But most of the mystery related visuals were over the top and the direction of the "real world" scenes was too much.

Yes and god dammit wheres the next season.

First 6~ episodes are boring. Movie gets interesting, and then school festival is FUCKIN' MASTERPIECE. Absolutely love the show to bits and I'm sad there will never be another season.

I think the moment you start enjoying it is when it finally clicks that it's a story about the characters with the mysteries as a way to move the plot forward, rather than a mystery animu.
>>
>>100404050
That's the point, Chitanda is the character focused person always caring about the motivations rather than the mystery itself, just like the show does, and when she's missing due to a hangover you don't get all the information you need.

Why didn't she ask EBA? Get it now?
>>
>>100404980
I don't even know what EBA means.

And no it doesn't make sense.
>>
>>100400679
Just the festical arc.
>>
I remember that one of the novel reader claimed that KyoAni cut down mystery related stuff.
>>
It's a masterpiece.

It was well worth watching

The mysteries were just excuses for Chitanda to find someone to give her babies so she won't disappoint her family

Equally interesting was watching the confused reactions from blockheaded Americans who can't into subtlety

>why won't they fuck yet???

>>100405174

heh... nothing was subtle in Hyouka.

Here's how Chitanda knew Houtaro's solution was wrong, I'm using Mazui's script:

"I think Houngou-san knew the ending she wanted from the start.
Even if she fell ill, someone could have asked her. If it were so grave that she couldn't then..."

By questioning Eba's motivations, she can see something is off, this is the kind of things the show is about and what's Chitanda's role is.

I did, it was hard for me to get into it at the beginning. But I gave it a chance and I really enjoyed it from episode 7 or so onwards.

The greatest love story... almost told. Seriously that ending.. Kyoani can't into romantic endings. Then again I felt satisfied that Broeki finally gravitated towards Chitanda and expressed his interest to be around her.

It's like your knowledge of Kyoani shows doesn't go further than Hyouka's first episode.
