THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
New OP finally aired.

School Festival time. Interesting quizzes.

lol @ info. guy's CMing the club as weird.

The girl finally got back, and went out again. While that, the guy saw the photos of her cosplays.

Things got stolen?? Not only Fortune Tarot card...

More vocaloid cosplayers!! (Rin, Len, and Luka!!) Childhood girl vs. sempai about reading of manga and reviews.

Cooking competition with two girls?

She cannot find the manga that she promised the sempai in argument to show the next day.

Festival continues.
I Two Syaorans from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and TRC!!!

I'm trying to decide which OP I like better, but they're both nice.
Satoshi's Saturn costume is still adorkable.

LOL @ Oreki looking at Chitanda's photographs! The end was hilarious.

I'm really looking forward to the next episode. Hyouka really captures the mood of a school festival very well.

I wish they held school festivals here );

New OP! Houtarou seems to fall hard for Eru-chan.
He even loves her cosplays too. Nice taste.

Eru-chan seems to be curious about the mystery but managed to hold it in.

OMIGOSH! Mayaka in the preview killed me!
Fight! Mayaka! Don't give in!

OrekixChitanda is such a great pairing D: i hope there will be some romance moments between those 2.
Actually nothing much is happening, im waiting for some mystery, because im not interested in Mayaka being sad and gloomy.

3.5/5

Great EP! And luv the new OP~ looks like some characters will be returning :D.

There were so many funny moments, like omg the announcer's suspense - Tell me about it Fukube xD

And Oreki's "Curious" moment, wouldn't blame him though =P I wonder whats he's gona do with that watergun?

Looks like the next mystery will be starting soon just needs afew more pieces to the puzzle to peek Chitanda's interest.

Guess next week we'll see how Fukube's cooking skills will handle and Mayaka showing that egotistic senpai whos boss >:D

- Is it just me or did anyone else find Mayaka's room so nice =D

New ED. Like the first one better though. Oreki getting all flustered after Chitanda sees the pictures in a envelope in a different way <3. Mayaka can't find her manga she promised to show senpai.

I think it's the first time I have laugh in a OP sequence. XD

Oreki's blushing face is too cute.
I love how eveyrone is giving things to Oreki. (btw, I really like the effort Kyoani put in animating the small details, I find the way the guy gave the gun to Oreki really cool!)
I bet the mystery in the Kanya fest is the guy whole stole things. :O

Question: What's a GO club?

I can't wait for the next episode!

Excellent episode. Love the new OP!

Oreki looking through Eru's photographs was hilarious, especially the final scene between them. I'm hoping for more hints of a romance over the remaining episodes, considering it's been rather heavily foreshadowed all this time.

Mayaka's sub-plot is quite interesting as well.

Next episode looks exciting. Hyouka portrays the school festival better than any I've seen before. All the various, minor touches in the background really sell the energetic atmosphere.

The new OP sounds great and so much Houtarou. Could have had more Satoshi in it though. Satoshi was amazing and happy in the whole episode (
), with the quiz and with the new Tani dude, if that was his name. Oh one of the funny parts was the girl announcer, she sounded like she was constipated or something for suspense, what even?



I think Ibara and Satoshi had the better cosplay in the episode (sorry to those vocaloids).

Same here!

The new OP is awesome!

Lol at Fukube wearing that huge planet on his head while participating at the quiz test.

Haha! Oreki and Eru blushing when she found out that Oreki saw her pictures.

I can quite see the connection of this different happenings to the next episode.

Sad for Ibara.

I really like the attention to detail this anime adds. The fortune telling hut could have been really simple to do but the objects and the lighting was brilliant and realistic. You can feel that it was an amateur's attempt at fortune telling but the mysterious atmosphere is still there.

There are many other areas where they give this treatment but Mayaka's room caught my attention. There is so much you can see in this room and it is filled with books, posters and stuff animals. The detail is amazing and many objects are unique. I also love the music that goes along with it.

Hyouka hasn't been exciting, however, I will watch this to the end because it has beautiful animation and atmosphere.

Oreki getting those things on his face! Ahahahaha.

The Tani guy sure is annoying Fukube.
A lot of things are heating up in the manga society!

Chitanda discovered Oreki looking at her cosplay photos!
What an awkward situation!

Fun ep.

Mayaka and Eru continue to be cute! Looks like a mystery is building up with the two clubs with stolen items.

Also did anyone else notice the black haired girl that looks like Tsumugi from K-ON!?



Nice touch there by KyoAni lol.

And omg Eru was so MOE this ep!

The girls at war for the manga society was hilarious when the sign showed up after the debate they had, almost missed it if I didnt go back to the scene.
Actually, I think Mayaka was set up. Did you note when she took that arrogant girl's bait and stood up to confront her - another girl int he corner of the scene got up and ran off. I think the sign was prepared in advance. They were baiting her.

There certainly are a lot of seemingly random little things being scattered about. Very curious ;)

My heart went out to Mayaka some - I'm a big book collector on a very wide range of subjects, hundreds of which are stored in boxes for lack of a better place to keep them. There have been many times I've torn the house apart looking for a specific book to show or lend to somebody.

Lol that manga debate reminds me of that debate between "anime is pure entertainment. It can be as brainless as it wants" v. "anime should have some elements that incite deep thought. Inane bs causes peoples' brains to rot."

lol Chitanda x Oreki.

I'm liking the well established atmosphere of the festival and also what seems to be subtle clues that are being left behind for the viewer to pick up upon. Anyway I'm hoping that the fact the hints are occurring at different places in the festival means that Oreki and co. will need to come together (unlike the film mystery) to solve it. I'm actually enjoying the show quite a bit more for these last few episodes. Very nice.

Great Episode! New Op is nice but still prefer old one imo.
Hoping for a little romance at the side even though main focus is mystery in this anime.

ahhh satoshi's saturn is just too cute! and it seems that his little "friend" wants him and the classics club to solve a thief mystery from the Go Club. A tarot card was also stolen. Possible subtle plot development...?

Ibara at the manga society better beat that annoying senpai down because she is pissing me off.

and omg at the last part OREKI BLUSHING OSDMKFVC SO CUTE USIJKDHFNCVX

Oh fuck you KyoAni if you're not going to make this canon after teasing it so hard in the new ED/OP and baiting us in this episode, even. I ship it hard.

Satoshi is hilarious, Mayaka is still meh.. I like the scenes with the other 3 characters but not so much her. She's not bad but definitely not as interesting, imo.

Those "Cold Case" stamps on the Wanted posters in the ED somehow give me the feeling they'll just continue hinting at romance.

That is because one of them was trolling to get a reaction out of the other. It was all a set-up between the club president and the Samurai Sempai, complete with a special sign to draw people in for the cat-fight. (I bet they had signs up around the building!)

It has always been a romance, just with mystery as the wrapper. In the very first episode Oreki was head over heals for Eru, he is just avoiding it! (Episode 11.5 had some of the best development on that front yet.

This was a great episode! I loved Satoshi advertising to sell copies of Hyouka and Myaka's argument, but especially Oreki checking out Eru's photos and her figuring it out and being too embarrassed to ask about it! :)

Hehe Chitanda's pics were adorable and Oreki and Chitanda's reactions were priceless.

First off, animation is sweet with all the little details and intricate unique objects, it gives it a nice feel. I really like the inner monologue going on with Satoshi really helps to emphatize Oreki's point about his character. With all that going hints about the mystery are dropping all over the place which is hinting toward a group effort case solve like with "Hyouka" but well see.
Ship tease going hard there at the end with the ending, the pictures, and if you really want to the op? Besides that it's nice seeing how Chitanda's adventure gave Oreki a nice reward?
Mayaka's facing off against her senpai really got to me, as soon as that other girl said her first couple lines, it ticked me off. Hope she gets her good.

In the previous episode the Apple Juice was missing, now we learn a bunch of other things are going missing all across the festival... and also at Mayaka's house.

Oreki trades the clip from the backstage pass for a sidearm. I wonder what he will trade next?

I couldn't help notice the obvious animation error with the "X" and "O" signs at the competition. At the beginning they are:

X O

Then as the girl tells the question:

O X

Finally asking if the question is true or false:

X O

Minor but very noticeable. Guess they'll fix that in the disc release.

Hey, even Hontarou has to get a little excitement and Eru's cosplay photos did the trick. Eru is very cute with her reaction to Hontarou seeing her photos.

Excellent Episode. New OP is good. Not sure which one I like more.

Seems we have several story lines developing unlike the last episode. So the broken pen from oreki's sister got him a backstage pass then in turn the pin on the pass got him a water gun, I wonder where this is heading. And now we have a thief mystery. First the apple juice from the choir, and now the wheel of ate card from the fortune telling club and go stones from the go club. Im thinking these story lines will converge, like the stuff will help oreki solve the thief mystery and that will attract people to the club and buy the anthology.

The manga debate was pointless. I agree that kouchi-sempai is trolling her and they were baiting mayaka, since it seems they had that sign prepared.

Chitanda's photos were cute. LOL, when Chitanda found out Oreki looked at them. Such an awkward moment when someone goes though your photos. They better make Oreki x Chitanda happen, especially after OVA, this episode and the new ED/OP

Seriously, I have a thing for blushing girls, but chitanda took the cake here. so damn adorable.

Also, I still like the pacing of hyouka.

You know i wasn't looking forward to the dreaded "Festival Arc" that slice of life animes oh so love having very much....However, the way Hyouka is pulling it off....It astounds me, I'm actually enjoying the festival.....The way the MCs are reacting to the festival as a whole (mainly Chitanda and Satoshi) feels very natural.

The festival environment just has a very real feel to it, and i think they did a great job in portraying that in the past two episodes, and i can't wait to see more. When Oreki first pulled out the pictures and put them down, i kinda had the feeling Chitanda would find out he looked at them =P, and i'm glad my hunch was correct.

However i wish Oreki and Chitanda didn't have to cut it off there......I wanted to see more of that little convo they were about to have......Ah well, either way....I really hope we see moments like this grow in number. Between Chitanda and Oreki....I like that they're taking it slow, building their relationship pretty much from the ground up. I hope that by the end we'll see them end up together.....The studio in charge of Hyouka were also the ones involved with Clannad and a few other romance series.....So here's to hoping!
