Can we talk about how beautiful and entertaining this show was, and why it is one of the best things KyoAni has ever made?
Can we talk about how we'll never get a season 2 that develops Oreki and Chitanda's relationship?
We'll surely get a season 2! KyoAni wouldn't leave us like this, right?
Greatest love story.. almost told. The ending was fine but left me with blue balls. I wanted to hear Broeki's confession.
First few episodes were artistic in nature, not many people liked it. The school festival arc was legendary. All character designs and depth was amazing. As expected of Kyoani.
Watch out of incoming Shaft trolls
Kyoani pretty much animated all the Hyouka LN's that are currently out; so, even if they want to make a season 2, it wouldn't be for a very long time.
Kyoani is back in bed with Kadokawa, so that's obstacle number one down.
Now they just need more source material.
If by this you mean incredibly boring and dull then sure, the most "entertaining" show that was ever made, Kyoani's masterpiece of dull and boredoom.
Oreki siblings fighting crime, that's all I want
Unbelievable attention to detail. It really makes the show feel so much more lively too, and it all culminates in one of the best school festival arcs in all of anime.
Did you watch the whole series? If you watched the festival arc, it was a spectacular, unlike any other story. The tension leading to the ending was delicious.
You might be suffering from shit taste syndrome.
Literally just decided to start watching this from my backlog, onto episode 3 now. I went in blind and it's not what I was expecting, I thought I'd drop it after 10 minutes into the first episode
So far, so good
>Oreki suffers arc
>Everyone suffers but Oreki arc
Man, this show was good.
You have shit taste. Now fuck off.
Fantastic series with two girls at the top of my "Would Dick" list.
>Kyoani is back in bed with Kadokawa
Is this true? For what?
Truly the best girl, although every girl was the best girl.
Directed by Takemoto too, but it'll probably be a lot more like FMP than Hyouka.
I just want to cuddle with her.
I want Fuyumi to be happy.
Yes. Yes we can. Just finished last night and posted pic related with tfw no qt gf in a kimono.
I kind of wish they weren't so open and ambiguous with the ending
Still completely amazed at how people can think this
Well, Hyouka's script was written by Gatoh too.
I just hope Amagi Brilliant Park -looks- like Hyouka.
>I thought I'd drop it after 10 minutes into the first episode
Me too, glad I didn't though. Hyouka doesn't have much of a hook on the first episode but it really pulls you in if you keep watching.
Is the LN art? or just like an alternate version or something?
I fell asleep two times first episode.
Probably one of the comfiest shows i've watched
It picks up with the movie arc. If you lasted that long, there is no way you would drop it past that point.
Liked it so much that I'd buy it but yet, it's still not out in the West.
>KyoAni will never make another good show after Hyouka
Presumably LN art. It's been through a few different iterations.
What was everyones favorite episode? mine was >>100587500
or maybe 21
Whatever Valentine's Day episode was.
Amusingly close to this pic.
Takemoto will save KyoAni >>100585977
What if Free! gets their second season before hyouka?
I feel an incredible dread whenever someone says Hyouka bored them.
Nothing? Hyouka has not enough material for S2.
Chuu2 got its S2 before Hyouka, just saying.
I wanted to like it cause I'm a pretty big Kyoanifag, but the sleep-inducing pacing and shoujo-esque style got me.
This isn`t haruhi.
>wanting manipulative people to be happy
You're a good person.
Movie episode was the best because it was the only real mystery where you could pause it and solve it yourself.
Hyouka actually has novels instead of light novels.
It's published by a LN publisher, so it's a LN.
It's not some indication of quality.
Did we ever find out who these two cuties were? I remember posts saying it could be some of the girls we seen but no indication they were.
Fatty Mayaka is fat.
>no S2 of KnK
>no S2 of Hyouka
being shit taste is suffering ;_;
Fall or winter for KnK S2. Just you watch.
Quality means nothing when it comes to Kyoani titles getting sequels.
I can see it getting a movie, maybe not an S2. It definitely needs more content though, 12 episodes wasn't enough I don't think.
Nope. There is one short story and the whole 5th volume left. But it's true that they animated everything that comes between the beginning and the doll walk chronologically. Much like they did with Haruhi.
That's not how it works, the Hyouka volumes are real novels.
LNs are significantly shorter and generally have less kanji and/or less complicated kanji. They are also sold as LNs, where the Hyouka volumes were sold as novels.
I agree that the designation is not necessarily an indication of quality, the same way that no such thing should be inferred from manga reader demographics.
>implying Hyouka was good
Please pretty much everyone on this board agreed that it was boring as fuck
That doesn't make it true faggot
It's published by a LN publisher. It was originally run in a Kadokawa Sneaker, a LN magazine.
All other factors are merely generalizations.
I wouldn't mind an OVA of them doing things with these designs.
You realise LNs are published in a different format to novels right? They are printed in the significantly smaller bunkobon format.
A good comparison would be the broadsheet/tabloid distinction in the newspaper industry, actual quality differences therein notwithstanding.
that cape is ridiculous, but satoshi's coat is pure sex
Alright, that I have to admit is impressive, not only for the studio but for the people who noticed.
The show was boring and the characters were shit.
>not wearing a cape
What a plebeian !
This. I don't from where theses "Hyouka is a masterpiece" faggots are coming from
THAT WAS A FUCKING CONFESSION
FROM BOTH OF THEM
>can't type like a proper human being
Several times every season.
Art thou a german?
Real men love shoujo.
Shounen is for kids.
So if a book is released by Dark Horse, it's a comic?
>one of the best school festival arcs in all of anime.
That's a pretty shit award, though. If we're giving these out, I'm giving best beach episode to Nazo no Kanojo X.
Yes it was kind of ambiguous as I said. I wanted I straight up, "Oreki, daisuke!" And i also felt depressed after seeing that he only imagined saying that "i'll help" part
The thing about Hyouka that people are complaining about is that it's kyoani and the fact that they were expecting more from a "mystery" show.
They thought since it's a "mystery" show, the mysteries would be mind blowing and have earth shattering consequences. They keep forgetting that this show is a SOL first. If you think about it and apply their critisicms, other shows would be guilty of it too and worse.
I wouldn't go as to say it's a masterpiece mainly because I don't like endless arguments about why it's shit and why it's not but it's a great show and the "it cured my insomia" and "it's boring" is just a meme everyone picks up on other/earlier hyouka threads.
Hyouka is great if you really come down to it though.
That's because /a/ is a bunch of 14 year olds and manchildren who can't watch anything without tits or action every 5 minutes.
I LOOOOVE YOU JEEESSUUUS CHRRIIISST
By "everyone on this board" do you mean "shitposters with bad taste"?
just image, Yahari made by kyoani with Hyouka budget.
when i watched the first episode, (the "key mistery"), i have empathize more with the clannadMAN janitor than with oreki and chitanda. for that atmosphere kyoani have engaged the wrong target
I loved how characters who you meet in different episodes can be seen as background characters in other episodes.
I'd hate to be a baka gaijin that can't fully enjoy the hyouka experience
the psycho cook is best girl
I never thought I'd love an anime as much as I loved Hyouka. I've rewatched it six times now and it never stops being perfect. Also Oreki makes me gayer than aids.
I've already watched it, but i'm going to re-download a better quality version and rewatch it. Because holy fuck that animation makes my eyes happy
>. I've rewatched it six times now
You have my respect, I personally couldn't get past the first episode, it was that boring..
You gotta man. Hyouka is absolutely gorgeous.
>I've rewatched it six times
>anon watched Hyouka 7 times already
That's probably the first thing I'll read when I complete my moonrunes training.
honest to god masterpiece
I really hated this anime at first.
Then it really grew on me, I miss Hyouka tuesdays. When I rewatched the series I was surprised how I actually enjoyed watching it.
It was Hyouka Mondays actually
Hyouka aired in Sundays
I was one of those day after people.
I wish they gave her more time, She would have been a great addition to the main group.
I want Kyoani to make something more great than Hyouka but it looks very slim because of how good it was, The mysteries were brillaint, Could have done without the romance hint ending since thats all people COMPLAINED about.
I thought it was Monday according to japan time?
I don't think I even like the show, I think I just like chitanda.
That's how time zones work but in US it's around 1PM when anime air in Japan
I want to protect that braid
