The second mystery had potential, but they didn't build on what made the secret club so mysterious, other than no one other than the members know about it... WHY IS IT SECRET? WHAT IS THE CODE BEHIND THE RECRUITMENT INFO? WHO IS THE NEW PRESIDENT? The mysterious aspects weren't even touched upon...

I want to believe that you understood that the second mystery was a lie, right?

Wow, I like the main character! He is good at logic that's why I like him. When he meet with the female, I'm PRAYING she won't act like HARUHI or I hope she IS NOT A FREAKING TSUNDERE! I was soooo nervous and to make it worse, that scene was slow motioned! I'm so relieved she is not a tsundere and not annoying like Haruhi!

I do thought Hotaro is like Kyon a bit (Idk I just get the feeling), and Chitanda also resemble Haruhi a bit (The forcefulness and mysterious power), she wasn't my taste. I dislike forceful person. Oh, at her curiousity about mysteries, it reminds me of Mayura(Matantei Loki, and I dislike her).

So, let see what will happen next! Oh yeah, I really like Hotaro's friend (Satoshi)! I hope there won't be any romance in this series... I don't know but I already dislike Hotaro and Chitanda pairing... Ah, and the OP song is great, the animation pretty good too....

I really hope some good mysteries, and some drama in later episodes...

Didn't Hotaro make everything up, from the club to the memo? I could be wrong, as I wasn't paying too much attention at the time. It's not as much a mystery as it was a trick to aid his efficiency, or so he thought. Oddly, this was the one part of the episode I liked.

I love the art & animation, the character design, and the story seems promising (well it's quite boring at some points). the atmosphere is relaxing yet intriguing... yes this is going to be one good series!!!

Like most people have stated here, great animation & designs. However the mysteries were non-interesting... I hope it's only the first episode.

beautiful animation, pleasant show - nothing too thrilling, but it feels like it has potential as a character driven romance/drama type thing...

I thought that perhaps it may have been the case when he said something along the lines of "perfect timing" and had that smile, but the first mystery was so banal and there was no conclusion to the "joke" other than "Yay, we found it", that I honestly just took it as a serious attempt at mystery from the writers...
That actually makes it even worse when a made a mystery made up by the protagonist is more interesting that the actual ones...

Edit: Ya, it is obvious that it was a joke from the epilogue portion of the episode. I mentioned I skimmed the last portions of the episode because I was flat-lining from boredom.

Even if the mysteries are kinda dumb at the moment, KyoAni are known for their slice-of-life shows. And I believe that Hyouka gonna be another excellent slice-of-life anime. I don't mind if they cut all that mystery out, just let me observe this everyday's life of Eru and Houtarou, and i ll be more than pleased.
IMO, this show has got a great potential,damn, it instantly became one of my favorite shows of this season.

i found the flowers thing very cute. sort of like a metaphor to describe how houtarou finds chitanda intriguingly mysterious?????? (or pretty????). and it has become the planks that i will use to build my new ship.

also, THAT ANIMATION.

Here go another protagonist with low motto, happy girl, unpopular? energetic friend and random mysteries. Remind me iris zero and here i was hoping for some decent mystery plot.

Art/Animation is the only plus for me.

This is pure eye-candy. Character design, animation and whatnot. ♥ Love it.

I just love the simplicity of this. Just because the "mysteries" were simple doesn't mean they're boring. It kinds of reminds me of Bakuman's PCP. And I liked that quite a lot.

Also, all the characters were just lovable. I just hope the fourth one isn't annoying.

I agree the negative feedback and bashing is terrible but some people don't have patience and try to convince themselves to see this show as low to be impressed later.

IMO patience and watching at least 4 to 6 episodes for the flow is needed. Sadly not all are like me and so all have differences.

One thing though, I do sympathize with fears of people that the studio may fuck in investing too much into visuals. They looks expensive to pour out.

Interesting show so far. I already hate the main girl, though.

Still, those two main guys are really interesting.

Animation is...KyoAni.

For those who complain about the lack of substance of the mysteries - why? It's not like anything really happened so far. One coincidence and one elaborate lie, nothing I would consider a serious attempt to an interesting mystery by the writers. These were just tools to show the personalities of the characters and they succeeded.
Plus if you need to see some really, really bad "mysteries" go watch Phi Brain and then rejoice over the creativity of Hyouka ^^.

It's strange.
I can enjoy Sakamichi no Apollon & Tsuritama just fine but I can't seem to enjoy this one.
I thought it was utterly boring. There was no 'hook' or 'grab' for me at all. I was even surprised I managed to finish the episode with subs.

I guess you can say I found the first episode very...underwhelming.
Hopefully it picks up in the next couple episodes and pays off in the end.
I really want to like this series.

This guy strikes again.

I feel like if I took the first episode as seriously as some of these people appear to I would have dropped 95% of the anime I've ever seen.
