So i know i'm late to the party but this was pretty fucking fantastic
Yes, Kyoto Animation's finest work.
>tfw don't speak moon
>tfw LN 5 translations nowhere
It was slow, but beautiful and engaging.
Will there ever be anything like it?
Other than the sequel we'll get in 20 years after the author dies and passes the novel to his next of kin.
Except that the mysteries were bullshit to figure out.
HOW WAS I MEANT TO DEDUCE THAT IT WAS A KIMONO HANGING TO DRY AFTER THE LITTLE SISTER TRIPPED WHILE IT WAS RAINING WHILE A FESTIVAL WAS GOING ON IN THE STREET WHOSE ONLY CLUE WAS A DRUM TAIKO BEING PLAYED EARLIER IN THE EPISODE?
>Not figuring it out
If I wanted to sleep I would take a nap.
The intercom episode pretty much addresses any issues with this. Oreki is just magic and can bullshit any answer and it will be correct.
Has anyone Translated it yet?
You didnt figure it out.
No one did.
No one Scooby-did any of the mysteries.
The festival arc still stands as the best animating and directing in any anime ever.
Need.... recommendation......... for something similar to Hyouka..........please.............
Boku no Pico has similar themes.
That episode was one of the best of the series too.
>That almost kissu
I did figure out kimono thing.
That was it, though.
Oh, I remember someone predicting he'd get that thing Mayaka wanted too.
it was boring as fuck.
Was his sister magic or something
She just knew what was up
It's like he's lazy Sherlock and she is hippie Mycroft.
She's just beyond him in magic and logic.
I guess I liked it, the retarded love between chitanda and.. MC (i always forget names) was annoying though, even more after i was informed that was added by kyoani.
Ibara a best
>Good at all
This. When Oreki says "I was lucky", he isn't lying. That's the big 'secret' of this show.
Also I would a Mayaka.
I got most of them except for Kudryavka Order. The mysteries were never hard but fuck that one was ABSOLUTE HORSESHIT.
Why would you send a message like that in the most cryptic way possible? I'm surprised the receiver even got it.
Oreki just refuses to accept his gift
>kyoani will never make an anime as good as Hyouka again
I felt that she sort of orchestrated some of what happened...
He has no gift, brah. He fucked up in the film club arc.
No, everyone loved his ending
They just wanted him to stop saying it was her ending and say it was his own
Why is the director wasting his talent on this shit?
>tfw you will never see her face
I don't think anyone could achieve this, Hyouka is just too good.
working class scum.jpg
So idiots like myself can invest.
I hated Hyouka and loved Chuu-2.
Words cannot describe how excited i was when i heard Chuu-2 was getting a second season and not this boring dog turd.
>Hey, I'm gonna do that thing where I'm gonna call a LN shit even though I've never read it!
Why are you the worst.
Just the fucking worst.
Here we go
>complains about hyouka being boring dog turd
So has anyone who speaks moon read The Approximation of the Distance of Two?
Am I the only one who actually liked both Chuu2 and Hyoka?
>implying Nichijou was anything but a masterpiece
I liked Chuu2 and Hyouka but Nichijou is unfunny randum/b/ shit.
> mysteries I solved
>Not hard at all, what are you talking about? Even mentally retarded babbies like you could figure that out
> mysteries I couldn't solve
> ABSOLUTE HORSESHIT. ARTIFICIAL DIFFICULTY. WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT.
You sound like a faggot.
You don't get it, anon. Oreki is just lucky. He makes shit up. Remember the counterfeit bill one? Well, he just makes shit up that somehow makes sense and satisfies Chitanda (this is the most important part). And then, he gets lucky. There's no logic, not reasoning, no anything. Just making shit up.
I'm not legitimately mad, I was joking. I like Hyouka. But come on though, it was so damn cryptic. Who actually figured that one out?
I tried so hard to find anime with similar vibe as Hyouka and I couldn't find it.
You are right that it was luck, but you can't say that there was no reasoning behind it too.
I think Bakemonogatari has a similar vibe in its own way because of wordswordswordswords but that's about it.
There is no ice cream.
KyoAnus only good work in the last 6-7 years.
Yeah I'm implying I don't like Haruhi or K-On, live with it.
Come on, movie was amazing.
>I hated Hyouka and loved Chuu-2.
The voice of /a/utism.
Oh, that came out badly. I meant that, he first builds a theory that somehow fits the scene, and then applies reasoning to figure out why it doesn't work, and keeps building on it until it fits everything. It's just that, in that first step, there's almost no reasoning. The reasoning comes after that. In a sense, it's the complete opposite of how a mystery novel works, where the detective gathers all the data, and then deduces the only theory that works with it.
>t's the complete opposite of how a mystery novel works, where the detective gathers all the data, and then deduces the only theory that works with it.
Going from vague, general theory and making it work by collecting supporting proof through logic and reason is deduction.
>That whole festival arc
Muh dick everytime
There's not enough material for Hyouka S2 yet anyway, if vol 6 ever get released...
Vol 6 never right?
>tfw 4 years
The author said last year that he came up with the plot for vol 6.
It's 2014 so the author is probably working on his next award winning mystery novel if it's not published yet, he wins the award every other year and this year is it.
We can hope
Hyouka was by far the best show Kyoani animated. It's leagues ahead of mediocre moeshit pandering like chuu2shit.
Also posting best girl.
Now, if someone translated the remaining volumes... No, seriously, I'm busy with other things, or I would do it myself. It's only volumes 4 and 5, and part of the 3rd one too.
Huh I can't see Ibara anywhere
Why do people think that tsundere is always best girl?
You missed Swagga.
Damn Kyoani for giving her so little ;_;
I can't count how many times i've rewatched the School Festival arc.
Mayaka was right. " A Masterpiece were born as a masterpiece."
I want to impregnate her
Fortunately, the novels are getting localized in where I live.
Now I'm curious. Where do you live?
I used to like Irisu the best as well but Mayaka has since grown on me. Yeah her body and mannerisms are childish but she makes up for it with cuteness and suffering.
She had more than enough.
The manga is also coming out in a few days.
>tfw no more irisu ever
Did everyone doing the LN trasnlations just die
I liked Hyouka until the ending came. Instant drop from being pretty good to the average.
ill rip u a new 1 m8
When you read the novels, and they tell you that in that school, there are a myriad of clubs, and that the school festival is something everyone pours their all into... Well, it's hard to imagine something like that. But somehow, Kyoani managed to pull that out, and not only that, but the whole things looks amazingly alive. I guess we'll never see anything like it until kyoani animates the next year school festival... but onviously, the author has to write it first.
On a side note, I always liked your language (specially the writing system). I've looked around a few times, but I never found anything good to start learning. Do you know of someplace?
You could watch KnK for her recycled character design.
Hyouka is the best kyoani have made, yet still no s2...
Wasn't it only one guy? Wait... someone started translating 5? When?
I have this here...
>mfw watching this
>Do you know of someplace?
No idea, sorry.
You know what's funnay? I love Nichijou, Hyouka and Chuu2. All of them great works in their own regard.
But I know you don't care, as your reasoning for your post was just "show wars = guaranteed replies".
>And have sex every single day in the missionary position for the sole purpose of procreation
Still gets me
I'll never get you people. You keep coming to these threads to say how boring Hyouka was... but don't you have anything better to do? Is your life that boring, that the most interesting thing you can do right now is come here and post the same thing you posted in every Hyouka thread you've ever seen? Because, maybe, that's the problem, man. That your life itself is boring.
this is how i felt until the kanya arc, then all the episodes grasped me tighter than a tight thing.
>yfw Vol 6 ruins everything
>H-he made fun of my favorite show! You have no life!
I liked the show but some episodes were boring as fuck and felt as filler since there was no character development or anything. The "mistery" of this show as dumb as fuck too.
Chuu2 was better than Hyouka but after overlooking some of Hyouka's flaws, they're both quite good.
So, every fucking Hyouka show people say how it is the best KyoAni show. Kyoani, meaning that Kyoani, like Fumoffu Kyoani, Haruhi (well, at least Dissappearance?) Kyoani, Nichijou Kyoani.
And then they say Hyoka is their best show.
You can't be serious guys. I liked Hyoka a lot, but the best show? No. It's solid 8/10 and better than thus better than like ~90% of other shows, but it doesn't really compare to 10/10 Kyoani masterpieces mentioned above.
So, my question is, why is Hyouka so popular?
There are two main reasons: First, we are old. There's a lot of people that hasn't watched Fumofu or Haruhi (and even then, both are more popular than Hyouka. They are not discussed because they're old). Second, Hyouka is without a doubt, the most beautifully animated work by Kyoani, except, maybe, the disappearance (and even then, they are quite on par).
About Nichijou, well, there's a lot of people that didn't like it (don't ask me why).
So, yeah, Hyouka is not the best shit ever, but it was great in many senses, and the animation and direction are probably in the top 5 of TV anime history.
to me all three were immensely enjoyable
but nichijou is a comedy and haruhi is ... more gimmicky than hyouka.
haruhi had an interesting premise right from the get go. hyouka pretty much had nothing at all. to the point that people can't even really say why they like it so much.
it's all in the characters, interactions and effort put in by the studio.
but really, they're on the same level i guess. if haruhi came out later than hyouka it would be the one hailed as kyoanis masterpiece, just because it was more recent.
Well we watched Hyouka
Because it had little angel Chitandas.
Hyouka is a beautiful series, but it suffers from two problems:
- Chitanda gets all worked up about the most mundane and boring "mysteries". As the viewer you tend to get excited too with her. After all you want to see something interesting that keeps you watching beyond the pure SoL aspect. But as the "mysteries" turn out to be so boring you get disappointed in comparison to how excited you got before because of Chitanda. So in the end the show actually makes you perceive it as more boring than it actually is.
- The almost non-existent romantic progression. Fuck you Kyo-Ani, just fuck you.
>As the viewer you tend to get excited too with her.
Nah, I self-inserted as Oreki, I was conserving my energy. You've been doing it wrong. Though usually there's nothing wrong with inserting as the little girl.
>That one crawling over his crotch
Gee, I wonder why I lost interest in self-inserting as the mal MC....
What kind of job would Houtaro get in the future?
He'd be a NEET if left on his own, I assume.
But since he'd marry Chitanda, he helps administering her family business and developing screenplays in his spare time (by being questioned by Chitanda who writes it down).
Do you think they'll ever get past pinky touching?
Yes. They'll have a simple wedding which requires little energy from Houtarou.
>requires little energy
>not knowing that the reason Houtarou needs to preserve energy is because he's using so much energy even while doing nothing that he'd die the moment he'd start to seriously work.
>mfw people rate how good anime is by how artsy it seems to them and not actually how they find it enjoyable
Best Kyoani in recent memory. Most underrated show on /a/.
He did fuck up. He was looking for the truth and found a lie. The whole point was to show that, while he is a damned genius at deductive reasoning, he needs other people helping to get to the right conclusion. He can't do it solo.
>Most underrated show on /a/.
>watching a show more than 6 months old
Hello newfag. Enjoy throwing new terms you don't understand around?
You don't watch shows older than 6 months?
What the fuck is wrong with you? Modern anime is fucking shit.
>says Hyouka is most underrated show on /a/
>literally daily circlejerk threads about how it's a masterpiece
>literally weekly threads about how its really boring and has worst kyonai in it
>Most underrated show on /a/
But then again, I wouldn't call it most overrated show either.
>Daily vs Weekly
literally ethered yourself
What would you say is most overrated then?
Good thing this crap isn't getting a S2 anytime soon.
Serves you right!
Oreimo, IS, SnK
No one likes IS here. No one.
I see threads about it so often here...
Those are just waifu wars and circle jerking.
You are kidding, right?
>doubting based Takemoto
It'll be fucking godly, you non-believer.
Angry Chitanda is best Chitanda.
Is it a harem? Does it have a male protagonist? If so, does he possess a personality?
Chitanda is always good
No, Oreki is descended from Sherlock Holmes.
I have to agree with that. I'm torn between Sherlock Chitanda and Chitandael in terms of best Chitanda, though.
>tfw Vol 6 finally :_:
>tfw enough material for second season
So, these two are related? They don't look alike to me.
Both are perfect.
Has there been anyone more handsome than this guy?
you being this gay is handsome.
A drunk Chitanda is fine, too.
Fuck you, guys.
Now I want to rewatch this again..
I liked the theme of Average<Talented<Genius a lot.
Mayaka being an average artist, Satoshi being average at mysteries and Oreki being a genius at mysteries.
Its just luck
You're a faggot.
Why is this so catchy and fun?
I'd be inclined to say that Satoshi is talented at being a complete douche. He friendzones Mayaka because he's scared and constantly bitches about Oreki's deductive abilities.
I love this show but Satoshi as a character just pisses me off to no end.
>tfw no more novels ever
Lifes just not fair
So did Oreki say what he wanted at the end or not? Or was that open for interpretation?
I have no idea what does Mayaka see in him, the guy's a dick.
How bout loli Chitanda?
What exactly do you mean
Not really. We see it with Mayaka<Kyouchi<Mystery Senpai
And again in Tani<Satoshi<Houtarou
i want to touch his hair.
Ungrateful faggot letting his talent go to waste!!
>I'd be inclined to say that Satoshi is talented at being a complete douche
Inferiority complexes do that to people.
When Mayaka and Chitanda are buy ingredients to make chocolate for valentines day and she asks Chitanda does she like someone.
Does she just not reply or does the sound cut and she says it
Hyouka is the fluffiest anime.
>That open mouth
She wants it
I liked the visuals for the questions/answers, it was pleasant having a visual aid rather than a character mouth flapping at me.
I'm pretty sure the sound's supposed to cut out. Either way it's pretty obvious what the answer is.
I wish I could get drunk from cakes.
anyone have the edited gif of them kissing?
Nothing beats the comfiness of the first ED
Good for you
I know right? I never get why people like harem in general.
You should at least give him some respect for the nice reaction image he posted!
