What score do you believe it should get?


So if I rate it 8.4, by your definition I am a hater? Of course not. I'm just point out to people here that they are way too hardcore about the rating system. We are at EPISODE TWO of TWENTY-ONE. This goes both ways. For people claiming this to be the second coming of Christ and for people who hate this series already after two episodes.

No, it's just that it's very out of context. It's like imagine if this was the K-ON ED. Don't you feel that it's terribly out of context?

If you are going to be like this, I strongly suggest you be the one to leave. You have JUST arrived on MAL, so do not be insulting anyone like that - this place is not here to incite flame-wars, it is here for us to talk about the episode informally.

I think you took my post the wrong way. I was asking you because I was genuinely interested in what score you would give it. Something like a 0.1 difference doesn't mean much.

I really would prefer it if you would stop being so defensive, I was just wondering what you thought - I didn't want a fight.

Episode was enjoyable, ED was off. Pacing was fine; wouldn't want it to be much faster, except in a few of the 'climax' episodes.

It makes no sense to do that. If you've watched it for 2 episodes, you can watch it for one more. I always watch 25% of any anime I'm "on-the-fence" on, before deciding what to do. If you drop it before even 10% has gone by, I really don't think you should be watching anime in the first place - or be talking on a site where people spend A LOT of time on anime.

Many people came to this show expecting complicated mysteries that would make good use of the glorious animation but so far the mysteries have been uninteresting and or easy to solve. So I can understand if people are dropping this show. Tbh so far this has been the most lackluster mystery show ive watched.

To some people, sure. An ED is an ED, though. Maybe the ED has some ties with the plot with the fan service just there to add eye candy and maybe even distract viewers. Or maybe it's just there for pure fan service. We wont really know for sure.

To me, I see the ED the same way I saw the Clannad + Clannad AS ED's; a way to detract the viewer from what they just saw. In Clannad, some people had issues with the ED because it felt so out of place, yet I thought it was perfect since it can get real depressing at times and the ED serves to lighten the mood.

Same thing here with Hyouka. People posting that it's boring, then when the ep ends they get a dose of some fan service. But that's just me over analyzing a 1.5m ED lol.

If I'm going to be honest, I didn't even give it two episodes, but that's because it wasn't my thing from the get-go - the set up was just too odd.

But if you're only "on-the-fence" about a show, stick with it for at least 25%. Only drop it when you're sure it wont be any good.

People can drop all they want. What usually piss people off is that some people try to start a flame war by posting how they hated the episode and announce that they dropped it knowing perfectly that the fans will start a rage/bashing war.

It degrades the forums. The fact that the fans are taking the bait is not helping either. It can also go both ways. Fans have to understand that some other people can also be pissed about the fan's defensive attitude towards a series. If you turn that argument over, you can say that there is only 10% of the series so fans should stop praising it like it's the best thing they have seen in their life.

Also, if the second episode is boring enough, a tip for some viewers with a life: you can drop it and wait until more episodes come out and see how the series play out before deciding to watch it or not. You don't have to be following this on a weekly basis to be disappointed at the end. Fans and haters should respect each other but by definition, of course they don't.

Not really a good analogy because Dango Daikazoku was extremely relevant to the series premise. Other than that, if I over-analyze this ED, I feel that I was slapped in the face. I'm offended by the portrayal of the female characters in that state (half-asleep and half-naked, showing weakness).

And i really find oreki an interesting character.


by the way... weird sense of smell in this episode... she heard something others didn't in first episode... strange confession and secrets, maybe im overlooking things but can it be that she is not a human or something like that? nah i don't think so.

I agree, Dango was great. Like I said though, there were some that had issues with it.

There are many ways to build up mysteries. Since this is a 21 ep series, they're taking their time building up the chars and the main plot.

To me, I see it this way: The first two eps bring character development. The first ep introduced us to 3 of the main chars while tossing in some light mysteries to slowly build up the pace of the show.

The second ep introduces us to the last main char while also tossing a light mystery. That's not all, though. It develops Houtarou by showing us his ability to solve mysteries, however big or small. It also continues to build up Eru's curious nature and now also her sense of smell ( Which will surely tie in to the plot ), while showing the viewers that Eru has been observing Houtarou ( Obviously leading to the main plot ) by repeatedly saying "Maybe Houtarou can..". Then at the end of the ep we're left at a cliffhanger which hopefully starts building us up to the main plot.

People just need to give it a chance. If you find these char developments slow and boring, just put the show on hold and watch it again when 3-4 eps release.

I called this bland and boring last week and I stand by that for that episode, but I enjoyed this episode a lot more. The mysteries are pretty shitty, but the characters and their interactions are fueling my desire to continue with this show atm. A definite improvement, I was dreading watching this show today but I found myself wanting more at the end.

Honestly though, let people drop the damn show if they want to. Sometimes shows just aren't to people's taste, no need to start name-calling and other bullshit here.

Something must be wrong if I'm actually finding the forum thread more entertaining than the actual episode.

Glad they're finally getting some kind of plot in this show, but seeing how the past two episodes already went and this is a 21 episode series, I'm definitely expecting more episodes of high school students solving extremely mundane "mysteries" before they get to dealing with a mystery that's probably not very mysterious at all. Eru came off as an even more annoying character this episode too, but pushy moeblob will be pushy moeblob, just the way the otaku like it. As for the ED, it was just laughably silly.

I wish KyoAni would actually branch out from the constant slice of life shows they keep churning and put their budget for another FMP season. Just imagine what Hyouka's budget could do with FMP.

I can't solve or create mysteries for my life.

I guess this is why I can't usually judge mystery series.

Even still I'm still liking this one.

While the whole book thing wasn't in particular a "ZOMG! WTF IS GOING ON?!?!" case, as was the last, but this was much more interesting in regard I had no idea what could have been going on. I really liked the resolution of this case, but do hope fr bigger mysteries later.

this new girl, I have to say I like her. a perfect contrast to Eru and fits pretty nicley with the group dynamic. now that I offically don't hate any of the characters, my already sold viewership is reassured!

I swear Eru's like a SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER toned down version of Haruhi in regards to once she gets curious, they guy (seriously need to work on these names) gets indefinetly stuck. which, since I enjoy that series is a good thing!

I have to say I share the MC's reaction when Eru came to the cafe in casual clothes, back in 5th grade I had a party and seeing the girl I used to like dressed so casually made my eyes widen abit. its a very true and nicely played out feeling. ku.... cliffhanger, now I have to wait for 7 painful days...AUGH!!!

Well I'm still havin fun! :D

^Agreed. Seriously, they haven't even got to the part mentioned in the synopsis: "They begin to investigate a case that occurred 33 years ago. Hints of the mystery are buried in an old collection of works of the former members of Classics Club. The collection is titled 'Hyouka.'"
At least watch until that before you decide to ditch.>>

(I admit I put Steins; Gate on hold after the first episode for 6 months. I really should've got to it early, because it was quite nice.)


Though, I would never drop an anime with such gorgeous animation. Even if the story sucks, I'll just rate it low. I don't drop shows unless... well, they're just ridiculous (rare).
Plus, I am loving the characters. Houtarou's awesome, and the opening and ending are really nice.
It's reminding me of UN-GO. (Story-pace wise?)

I'll admit that when I say "slice of life", I secretly mean "moeblobs doing moe things", which I still see a lot in this show even though the MC is a guy. While FMP does have its slice of life moments, it's also complimented with great comedy (which is why I actually enjoyed Nichijou to a certain degree) and an engaging action-y plot.

Strike 2.

No matter how much KyoAni does to make it interesting, it can't escape the banality of the source material.
Once again, the mystery itself is not much of a mystery to begin with. And once again, the reason behind it just as banal. The short time where he was actually trying to figure it out was interesting, but it was resolved so quickly. At this point, I have basically written off the mystery aspect of this show and am now looking at whether the characters are interesting enough to pull me through. Chitanda is your typical airhead and Oreki is your typical "I want a normal life" person with a cold atittude. So far, the only interesting characters are Mayaka and to a lesser extent, Satoshi, as they injects some dynamism into their conversations. But once again, I started to drift off 2/3 way through and started skipping ahead.

But yes, Chitanda is quite adorable.

I guess I have to re-organize my expectations for this anime. Doesn't look like I will have to think much while watching this anime. At least the visuals are top notch.

Then you missed out on the PV where it clearly showed a monster, although it's debatable as to when they should include it. I bang on episode 6 as intuition to as far as going around episode 10/11 half point. Remains to see but there was a monster and there was action, I hope no one gets hurt in all this remember that Kanon 2006 had a slice of life until shit hits the fan with that haunting in the school if you remember. Then this series might do something like that. A mystery that threatens lives to the point that solving it might get the characters hurt.

100% agree. These "mysteries" are a joke. I'll preface this by saying that I gave this ep a 4, just like the first one. I like this show, but probably only due to my similarity to the main character - I can relate to him, and I feel for him. I also want some romance - anything to spice this damn show up. I'm gonna keep watching no matter what, but I was under the impression that the mystery aspect was actually significant. Nope, it's just the theme for this slice of life anime. Now that I'm done expecting anything from the mysteries, I can look at this show the way I looked at Clannad, which I felt almost the exact same way about after the first few episodes. That at least gives me hope that this show will pick up a bit.

I kinda wish they would just drop the mysteries if they're going to be this mundane. Who cares what the book is used for? Poor MC - I don't know anyone who would ever even care about such a trivial thing, and he's stuck with this annoying girl who can't leave anything alone. Either way, aside from the mystery, this wasn't bad; again, I liked it, but even if there's a 'big' mystery that develops, I can only imagine what it will be (probably something insignificant).

That being said, Chitanda was teasing the viewer the whole episode. What does she want with Oreki? Why is she so damn annoying? Is this a confession or isn't it? That's enough to get me excited for the next episode, which I'm hoping will have more drama and less mystery. This show is about the characters, not big mysteries like Conan. Stick to what works.

If you have a better way to make $$$ off anime in general then by all means but TBH I bitch too at fan service but in thee end it's really venting because there is nothing you can do about it. My BLOG is the best example of fan service going rather adult extreme. So yeah be happy that $$$ is coming cause that is what it takes to make anime. Does that make sense.

I just feel bad for female audience in going down since some girls fan service in anime is a no to watch right away.

Not bad though it's boring. I was bored while watching the whole thing but as what the people are saying, they're just setting off the stage so i'mma give it a shot to 10 more episodes this time. TBH, Chitanda Eru's the only one dragging me to watch it 'cause she's so hnnnngggghhhhhhh. I like the new main character though. I'm wishing for a love triangle sooon. LOL like ano natsu de matteru.

I give up on expecting anything of the MAL users for this anime.

It's all about them whining about how the characters and story are boring and how the mysteries aren't massive.

The story will build as all good stories do.
The characters have chemistry and quirks, and do not fit into stupid stereotypes - like other anime this season.
The mysteries are slowly becoming larger - and the main premise is going to be unveiled next episode with Eru's confession.

I do not know what to say when the haters of this anime are giving it a comparable score to something like "Upotte!" or "Strike Witches" - I'm really getting sick from the thought.

It's fine to not like a studio - but leave it at that. When you go around 'watching + dropping' their anime, as well as giving them scores like 3 and lower for that reason alone, it just makes me so angry...

/le sigh.... I give up. From now on, I'll be writing my impressions alone, and only responding to those who actually back up their claims/opinions with reasons.

Boring as hell, dropped.

Is completely retarded, and will henceforth be ignored by me - and should be ignored by other people who take any anime seriously.

Come on people - grow up.

Boring...I'm sorry no offense to fans, but this episode was boring. :(

The fact that the mysteries at this point are lacking suspense is making this hard to finish, hope it gets better.

Though on the plus side, I like the relationship with Satoshi and the new girl, It's probably what interest me most out of everything in the series.

Nice way of showing the content of the letter.

OP is nice.

The girl wanting to have some activities for the club, but the guy doesn't want to do anything... another girl, who is librarian, is (Kayano Ai again?) appears. Her voice when having some trickiness is different.

lol~ so it's like there's a mystery to the classic book, the girl sparkling with "I wanna know", then the guy is getting involved in using his brain to solve the prob.

lol~ even the short hair girl has that eyes after him solving the case!!

The girl sensing something about the guy and she was about to tell him about it??

Wow!! This episode forced me to change my rating from 8 to 9/10! What a cliffhanger!

Now I really want to know about her "personal matter."

Can't wait for next week!!!

Bravo!! I agree with you. If people don't like it, they should drop it from the beginning and stop posting that they don't like it!

Episode's good as always. Not "great", but good in its own right.

Also, I love how it's semi-realistic. These mysteries could be stuff happening IRL, lol.

I desire money. Not because I am poor or because I am greedy. It is because with money I will gain power and with that power I will be able to change the world.

Could someone please message me a good link to a stream for this episode? All the sites I know of seem to have the same subber... who's timing SUCKS so badly in this episode that it's almost unwatchable.
I know we're getting the episodes around the same time as it is airred and usually the subbers do a really great job but this episode... might be the most uncomprehensable sub I have watched. And I've seen some doozies!

Please help!

Not a bad show so far. This episode byfar is much better than the first as well so it gives me hope as things go on. We'll see how things turn out.
