Synopsis

Energy-conservative high school student Houtarou Oreki ended up with more than he bargained for when he signed up for Classics Club at the behest of his sister-especially when he realized how deep-rooted the club's history really was. Begrudgingly, Oreki was dragged into the investigation of the 45-year mystery surrounding the club room.

Accompanied by fellow club members, who were knowledgeable Satoshi Fukube, stern but docile Mayaka Ibara, and always-curious Eru Chitanda, Oreki had to fight deadlines and lack of information with hidden intellect and talent, in order to not only find the truth buried under the dust of works which were made many years before them but from other small side cases as well.

Based on the award-winning Koten-light novel series, and directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto of Suzumiya Haruhi No Shoushitsu, hyouka shows that normal life can be full of small mysteries, whether it's family history, student films, or even withered flowers that form a story ghost.

Alright guys, let's talk some hyouka. Time to exercise your brain and turn the light bulb's curiosity on.

Hyouka (also the same name from the first volume of the Classic Literature Club which is also an implied term of "Ice Cream") is an anime series adapted from a mystery novel written by Honobu Yonezawa. The story? Well, if you are curious like a certain purple-eyed girl in the series, hyouka the details that Kamiyama High's Classic Literature Club and its members have fun while solving mysteries and enjoying their boring lifetime.

It all started with a young man who was not enthusiastic about the name Oreki Houtarou. He is the type of man who is difficult to make friends with because Oreki in his mind and his friend describe him as someone who is not interested in joining clubs, playing sports, or socializing. Nevertheless, he is very intelligent and observant in the smallest events and also has an intuition that is full of insight. After joining the club reluctantly by his brother, mystery, excitement, and the hyouka story begins.

Of course, hyouka wouldn't be much fun without other members of the club, right? We have a calm and happy girl with keen curiosity. With Moe's big purple eyes, he was curious about various events and mysteries that often involved other people and went "watashi kininarimita!" (I am curious!). She is a fun and happy going girl who despite being annoying at times brings fun and entertainment into the story. On the other hand, there is his best friend Mayaka Ibara who calls him "Chi-Chan" who is affectionate. Mayaka is the opposite of Chi-Chan because he seems to be the kind of girl who wants to avoid confrontation and if possible, end peacefully and quickly as possible. Last but certainly not least is Satoshi Fukube. He is a happy person who is carefree about life but far below a big man when he cares about others' well-being. With a strong memory, he is a useful as well as an Oreki compatible partner who balances the cheerfulness and mood of the duo/club.

Now at this point, you might be just as curious as Eru Chitanda herself or even have the thought "watashi kininarimasyita!" on whether the series is worth watching.

Overall, the bow and story are well made. Detection fiction involving a group of friends is never new in the anime industry. Series such as the Q school detective, heaven memo pad, and spiral: The bonding of reasoning also has that element. What makes the series more interesting seems to be the interaction between the four main members of the club with each other that goes beyond typical mysteries. The actors play their roles well with their voice acting that reflects the character's personality. With almost all the characters having different characteristics, it's funny to see how they all get along at the club. Strangely though, it actually doesn't work well. But of course, anime adaptations always have script problems not flowing or losing touch in some fillers like episodes. Personally, though, it works well.

Because this series takes place in the settings of school life, there are other characters in Hyouka who interact with the club. This is often included in some mysteries and requires various clubs' skills to solve the case.

If animation is part of this year's popularity poll, hyouka will take the grand prize. Kyoto Animation (Clannad, K-on !, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) does a pretty damn good job with production quality and that's not an understatement. I remember watching the first episode and the first thing that popped into my mind was "Wow, that animation is out of this world!" No, but seriously, the production quality is top-notch and Kyoto's animation doesn't disappoint. It even includes the wordplay illustrated in Oreki's mind and several other characters during the case to illustrate the instructions in a more realistic way of telling a story. With beautiful artwork and beautiful style presenting characters, he continues without saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words".

The soundtrack of the series is smooth, which is well coordinated. When a mystery case scene is presented, the soundtrack flows. When comedy scenes (usually involving our curious girl eru Chitanda), an OST of the rhythm is played. Even when Oreki was bored, it showed that he was really bored through the soundtrack. Talk about enthusiasm. The two opening songs are also well arranged in this series. The first OP song, "Yasashisa No Riyuu" by Choucho presents a smooth flowing song that gives us a feeling of lightness from hyouka. The second OP song "Mikansei Stride" by Saori Kodama presents a funnier way of the series with Oreki peering around with his own curiosity. (somewhat similar to the opening of Medaka Box). And of course, ED songs are also there to make us feel the mystery. Well, not exactly. The first ED song seems very naughty to say the least. Chitanda and Mayaka in a curious position ?! Turn on that orb of imagination. The second ED song though fits more in the mystery genre and is generally entertaining to watch.

Overall, hyouka is a lightweight series to watch on a long weekend. This series has drawbacks such as repetition in some intertwined arcs as well as playing careless words that take place in several episodes that can be annoying to watch. Chitanda phrase "watashi kininarimita!" also contagious at times and will be annoying. Apart from that, some mysteries are rather boring and not as realistic as they seem. If it's a real mystery, why not involve multiple murders and real crime? Needless to say, that's why hyouka is rated PG-13.

Hyouka is a school mystery series that involves ... guessing what, mystery. If you are not a detective fiction or genre, then press the drop button. There is nothing stopping you. But if you are curious like Eru Chitanda, then sit back, relax, and watch some mysteries as well as members of the Classics Literature Club doing what they do best at.

Curiosity kills the cat but hyouka is what kills boredom.

Hint
"I'm curious; I can't stop thinking about it!"

Are you looking for an adrenaline-pumping mystery anime about murder, fraud, and crime? Are you looking for a mystery anime that has a badass detective? Are you looking for a mystery that will keep you on the edge of your chair? Well, look elsewhere. Because hyouka isn't like that anime.

Story-hyouka tells the story of a boy named Oreki Houtarou. An apathetic man who has little interest in anything or anyone. His life motto is "I don't do anything. I don't have to. What I have to do, I do it quickly." He accepted, thinking that the club could be a good place to stay alone and conserve his energy. But the conservative life was in trouble when he learned that the club was also occupied by a curious girl by name by Chitanda Eru.

Overall, the stories and mysteries for this anime are well made. Most interesting and exciting mysteries. But unfortunately, some mysteries are poorly made and really boring. Fortunately, this mystery is only a few and rather short. There is also a good bit of romance and comedy in this anime.

Art-Kyoto animation is always praised for its good art and animation. But Kyoto Animation decided to take hyouka to another level in art. Hyouka is by far one of the most beautiful Animes I have ever seen. The character design is very well designed and suits their personality almost perfectly. The background was created with such detail that it felt like I was watching an anime movie not a TV show. The movements are also fluid and small details like the wind blowing hair characters are also very done.

The soundtracks fit the anime perfectly. From comedy to drama to the beginning of the mystery, the soundtrack matches the perfect mood and only brings more enjoyment to the audience. The first and second openings are also great songs that go on the iPod after first listening to it. Both endings are also quite good for the end and I enjoyed it.

Character-now the true reason this anime is so fun is not just because of mystery. But also character interaction. In this anime, we have four main characters. Oreki Houtarou, Chitanda Eru, Satoshi Fukube, and Mayaka Ibara. Three out of four people have different roles in solving mysteries. Satoshi is a database. Chitanda is the person who raises questions and opens mysteries, and Oreki is the person who solves mysteries. But this role changes at times. Sometimes Satoshi will be the one who tries to deduce the mystery, and Oreki will ask the question himself. Each character also goes through character development through anime. Especially Houtarou. He progressed to the point that even he got a little curious throughout the anime.

I'll just say it now. Hyouka is one of the best mysteries of Animes for me. A pleasant mystery. Great character interaction. Phenomenal animation. What's more there to say. I would definitely recommend this to someone who loves romance and mystery. No, that start. If you like anime. Then definitely give this anime a try.
