Does the MC get any better? He seems like he's one of those kids who try too hard to be different and is all antisocial and shit. I mean, at least in oregairu it was the same but at least 8man was entertaining and you don't feel like punching him in the face.
Anyways discuss hyouka I guess.
I thought Oreki was a pretty entertaining MC.
Drop it now, he only gets worse
>Does the MC get any better?
Yes. Character development is the main theme of Hyouka.
Yeah, goddamn nerds
If only OP could beat up ALL the unique characters in anime.
It was his life motto. Surely you have your own life style, everybody have one. His motto was energy saving. He doesn't mind and even appreciate people who devote their life to converse their energy. He appreciate others way of life.
And unlike somebody from another show, he didn't force his own belief to the others and the viewer. And also he's not an apathetic person to others, unlike other MC for another show (I repeat twice because it was important). It's just his way of living.
Oreki is lazy as fuck and that's what makes him so great.
>at least 8man was entertaining and you didn't feel like punching him in the face
Why is Oreki so /fa/?
8man was a chuuni of the worst kind
>“Well. You’ve really met my expectations ? not in a good way. A perfect instance of kounibyou.”
>“Like I said, what the hell is ‘kounibyou’?….”
>“Kounibyou is simply kounibyou, a common state of mind experienced by high school students. They think that being cynical is cool and always express views that are popular on the internet, like, ‘Work and you lose to the system.’7 When referring to popular novelists and manga writers, they say, ‘I like the books they wrote before they became popular.’ They mock the things that everybody worships and praise the obscure. And on top of that, they make fun of otakus even though they are like them. While giving off an air like they understand everything, they spout twisted logic. Basically, they’re unlikeable.”
>“Unlikeable… Crap! That’s pretty much spot on, so I can’t argue!”
He was basically a hipster.
>Does the MC get any better? He seems like he's one of those kids who try too hard to be different and is all antisocial and shit.
You know when you do that. You're saying that opinion because you only look it at the front, never sees the "WHY" and "HOW" factor.
Funny thing was, there's an episode dedicated for something like that. When Oreki thought that the teacher likes helicopter. He could just said "Oh, it means that he loves helicopter" just like that.
When he finally realized why the teacher said that. He learned that you can't just said something like you know it yourself. That's just being insensitive. You have to know the reason of it. You may think that it was like that, which in actuality there's a meaning behind it.
You may think anything freely OP, just know that doesn't means it's true. You have to know it until the end to judge it. Because if you don't, it would be pic related.
Hyouka is Kyoani's masterpiece.
What's your problem with Oreki, OP?
But Oreki is the best part of Hyouka
That's not how you spell Mayaka
That's how you spell boring slut
Oreki was honestly the best part of this show about nothing.
I started watching Hyouka for the mystery theme and ended being severely disappointed.
>show about nothing.
>mystery solved every week
Remember to take your Ritalin, kids.
I agree, Oreki is a boring slut
KIMIII NO MISTERYYY
Cool story bro.
Well, Hyouka was a slice of life about mysteries, not a mystery show.
Can't say I blame you for thinking it would be the latter though, half the people who picked it up thought the same.
>case of the teacher and the helicopter
>case of some name
>case of a book
Absolutely riveting. And the romance is so well-written.
Claiming the other argument is invalid instead of countering it.
Just because you didn't like the mysteries doesn't mean they didn't exist. So the low-key atmosphere wasn't to your taste; no one forced you to watch it.
Everything about this show is subtle, and that's the whole point.
There is character development, but it is subtle. A lot of changes in the characters only show up as variances in facial expressions at first. Over time Oreki moves away from his life style more and more voluntarily to the point where he doesn't even bother pretending that he resents having Chitanda turn his life on its head.
Oreki is nothing like 8man at all. They establish in the first episode that he doesn't look down on "the energetic ones", and he isn't trying hard to act a certain way at all, he really just is that way. He's very humble and not arrogant, grumpy but not angsty, and I found him very likeable and liked both his developments concerning the series-long growing influence of Chitanda (and that movie arc issue he had).
I liked most of them. They are what you'd expect from a bunch of normal schoolkids in a normal school, it is a SOL after all. Did you expect supernatural murder mysteries or serial killer crimes? The series used them as a good vehicle for the characters, and some cool animated sequences too.
Selling this show as a mystery is damn harmful.
What is this? Picture for ant?
How is Oreki so fucking sexy.
The only problem I had with the show was the fact that Oreki's movie arc character arc was resolved in an OVA. If you watched the show when it was airing he goes from being really upset to being perfectly fine in the next episode. OVA's should never contain vital story information.
Ah, I watched them with the OVA so I didn't notice anything strange. That is kind of dumb.
