Random question. Does anyone know how to pencil spin like Oreki at the beginning of the episode?
I tried hard to learn it during my physics classes at high school, but never got the techique right. There were at least two persons in the class who did it all the time so it's not completely impossible..

It took me 2 days to learn thumb around and 4 days to do reverse thumb around.

Once again a really enjoyable episode. The characters along with the visual presentation are the things what keeps the show interesting and there are still 15 episodes left for more captivating cases to come after all.

The next episode has the characters visit a spa. The episode title is "True Colors". I THINK THERE WILL BE PERVERTS... is what I'd like to think.

"th...they're rose-colored?!"

A pretty valid reason for her to get angry. A teacher was it wrong even though he doesn't give anyone the chance to prove it.

Meh, I liked it, but it was a pretty boring mystery. Hopefully it'll pick up next time! Looks like a ghost mystery eh?

Considering Satoshi and Houtarou may have never seen a naked girl, could be quite a reaction surprise not to miss out.

Next episode might be fan service, but so far there has been none and I guess they'll keep it that way.
I could be mistaken, but Houtarou did refer to Chitanda as a soul mate when she said that it was to preserve energy. I'm looking forward to the next episode, the main reason I watch this is still animation quality though.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Anger is a feeling and just like any other feeling, it can be hard to understand and put into word.
No, it really isn't.

Maddo_scientisto said:
If I ask you why you like something I do not expect you to give me logical reason where the obvious outcome will be that you like it.
No. 99% of the time, anyone will be able to give you at least SOME kind of reason for why they like they like something.

Maddo_scientisto said:
The same goes for anger, even though sometime it's obvious, sometime it's the result of a lot of factor your brain can't process into a logical procedure.
You're trying too hard. It usually just boils down to something happening that you don't like.

Maddo_scientisto said:
Try to toroughly analyze all your feeling and their cause, most of the time you will not be able to stir up any logical conclusion on the case without relying on other feeling which will also rely on other feeling only to realise that in the end, you couldn't explain anything logicaly.
False. Saying you can't analyze a certain feeling because it may be connected to another is complete nonsense. Feelings are connected, whether you want them to be or not.

the anime is great aside from the fact that this 'mystery' was totally useless and boring.

This is the least interesting episode for me so far.
Maybe because I just found it absurd and stupid to search for why the math teacher got something wrong and why she get angry to begin with... (you know, it's normal for teachers to make mistakes)

Next week looks interesting (not for the fanservice, I hope it's a mystery about ghost :P)


Kleeny, you didn't get it, do you? The main thing about this episode was not A and D and finding the reason behind getting angry, it was more Oreki's uncovering a bit of the mystery called "Chitanada Eru." The whole point of the episode was said at 22:13.00.

@shanimebib beat me to it - this show is not primarily about the mysteries the club solves. They are just the vehicle delivering what the real story is about.

It's certainly no action/adventure or comedy, but I find it really entertaining.

if it is revealed that Chitanada's an alien from outer space in the end of the show, that'll definitely be worth waiting for 20+ eps!

but no seriously, i donno why ppl find this girl cute (Mayaka's way cuter imo), she's a real pain in the ass if you think about it..

A great episode to my liking. It was quite easy to catch the mistake on A and D as soon as Satoshi mentioned he was in class 1-D and they had the domains of quadratic equation covered, I figured it out. But I absolutely loved the way the power of imagination demonstrated while Chitanda was telling the scenario. And the angel-like Chitanda and the mini-angel-like Chitanda-tachi with their curiosity as seen by Oreki were splendid. Too bad. Oreki thought he had found his soul mate there. :P

And I said this before, I am saying it again, the ED is so adorable. I can watch it like over and over and over again and still watch it all over again! :)

5/5


But still, it was the episode I enjoyed the least. And I wished they try to make a better mystery that would actually really interest Chitanda, but I guess they want to tell us that Chitanda is just interested in every trivial thing.

I can't describe how little I care about the things that happen to them each week.

Math teacher couldn't read his handwriting and there was 3 minutes of uproar in class? Wouldn't even qualify as an answer to 'Did anything happened at school today?'

At this point I'm wishing they would talk about chocolate cornettes and how to eat them

That was pretty pointless for a mystery. This series is lucky it has KyoAni animating it so the mundane stuff are converted to something more interesting. If you pick it apart, there's really nothing at the core. Well at least the storytelling is good enough to prevent me from getting bored.

This episode was... strange. I'm surprised that a whole 20 or so minutes were spent discussing why someone got angry over some simple mistake where nothing really happened when the person got angry.

LOL @ people that still expecting mystery from Hyouka.

Hyouka is a story about adolescence, and mostly slice of life. Get your expectation right before watching Hyouka, since you can only expect average to great "mystery" from main story arcs. Mystery is a plot device for Hyouka, not the main theme.


So there are some RIGHT expectations :D since when?
I was expecting mystery show and it fails at this.
In returns it gives a decent SoL story about one guy who is lazy but hides it under some philosophy - at least he starts to be more active, that's nice.

Not that i was expecting too much from it (since it's KyoAni)


That's the same point as the point that I want to convey. You are expecting mystery, and gets more slice of life rather than the actual mystery. Since many people tend to look down at slice of life, disappointment is natural for Hyouka.

It's the same thing like...expecting Fate/Zero to be a shounen show with a ton of cool fights, gets a lot of talk instead, and getting disappointed. Different expectation can kill enjoyment.

But well, sometimes it could also be a good thing. Like expecting Madoka to be a pretty typical magical girls story, and get the usual Gen Urobuchi's story instead... Most people like it.

wth?! nothing is happening.

Yeah, that's kinda my problem with this.

The whole plotty-mystery thing they had going ended at Episode 5. Is the rest of this anime just going to be them doing stupid shit like that?
I admit it had some funny parts but, I like my anime to have some storyline at least. If all it's going to be is, "Oh well, I got mad, I wonder why" for the rest of it... I'm probably gonna drop this.

This was probably the most pointless episode I've ever seen in an anime. It's a filler so trivial and forgettable that I can't imagine why kyoani adapted it. I mean, how could you forget something unusual that happened to you a few hours ago? And seriously, that "mystery" didn't require any kind of answer because it's a simple case of a person blaming others for his own mistakes and not realizing it, of course anyone would get angry.

And in the next episode hot springs. Cool, because I was pretty bored of anime that try to be original, it's better rehash the same hackneyed cliches over and over again.

I love how they can make a full episode of beauty out of a trivial matter. It was simply brilliant. Chitanda is dangerously cute when she gets interested in something. And Houtarou finding his soul mate was brilliant.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

The solution to the problem was a long shot based on the information given. Why would a math teacher write A as a and D as d in this context?
Weakest episode so far. I like how they only have small everyday mysteries, but it definately need plot development too.

I'm a little disappointed by this episode, it was a very weak follow-up from last week. That they managed to scrape together an episode about a teacher who misread his own handwriting is just silly. I hope they go back to solving more intriguing mysteries or I'll not be as excited for Hyouka anymore. Before this episode I thought it had a soothing, feelgood-atmosphere, but this one just lowered my hopes for the series. :/

Because math problems, you don't type unknowns in uppercases, so as a math teacher that becomes a habit.

This.

Check any mathematics textbook. Variables, which are by far the most common reason to use letters in math, are always lower case, and vertices of polygons/angles are always uppercase. Still, when you think of letter usage in math, you would definitely think variables first.

As is my habit, though I didn't think to attribute it to that until just now - I have degrees in physics and math, and yes I rarely print in upper case. And I've had that exact same thing happen to me - if I'm not careful I mix up my a's and d's.

I love this show. I found myself enthralled even though the episode had practically no direction. It was literally just a problem out of nowhere, but it was still written and animated in a way that made me want to know more.

I didn't realize until today that Hyouka is essentially an anime slice-of-life version of Sherlock Holmes. I'm a sucker for mystery.

Anyway, awesome episode, haven´t laught this much for a wilhe. I have though that the teacher have mistaken the class before Oreki, so it made me feel smart :3 But Chitanta doesn´t need to uderstant ever thing, it´s normal to be angry :~~
