Question: What's a GO club?

Go is a game played with stones in a board. More info here.

Enjoyed the episode. Both Chitanda and Oreki blushing over photographs alone made the episode all too awesome for me! Plus the new OP is wonderful too!

And Mayaka needs more screen time. I think I have fallen in love with her innocence! <3

As always, Oreki's sister must be playing a big role (the thief ?).

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.

Hyouka also doesn't forget the references it makes within the story. In this episode, Chitanda is reunited with Toogaito, our brave smoker that Houtarou ripped to shreds in Episode 3. Irisu purposefully avoids contact with Chitanda. We also meet one of the other four wealthy farming family's child, the fortune telling girl.

Of course, not to forget all the other references, I liked how this episode decided to take into account all the details exposed in the 12th episode and run with them (e.g. Saturn Satoshi and Cosplaying Eru).

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.

Chekhov's Gun is on the move!

Was it just me or was this episode filled with cute girls? (Not that it never is on a weekly basis!)

Eru sure has some interesting acquaintances.

I'm also thinking that she might be the one behind this "mystery."

I hope she appears, I'm sure that she would be able to detect that Oreki is falling for Eru. That would be interesting to watch.

New OP was great! I really enjoyed this episode, a lot better then the boring previous one. The beginning of a mystery, but not a whole lot about it, it was mostly just a filler character episode, but it was fun.

So the main mystery of the arc seems to be the club item thief. Last episode we saw one case, and here we have another two reported.

Choir club and apple juice,
Go club and go stones,
Occult club and a tarot card (wheel of fortune).

Is there a pattern here? I think we will need a lot more clues.

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.


Yes, I felt that when the sempai just started talking to no one in particular like that, and people glanced at Mayaka. The sign just confirms it.


Guess the club president was behind it, giving us another manipulative female leader in the show.


GarLogan78 said:
I kind of cringed watching Mayaka argue with her senpai in the Manga club. The argument just seemed really pointless.


The argument is possibly the single most done one in the art world, and has been going on since ancient times. Mayaka is taking the faith based side, one that is associated with young and idealistic people.

“Unmei no wa” from Uranai club. “Wheel of Fortune” from Fortune telling club.

We have to know .... 十文字( jyumonji or Jyumoji) has two meanings.
One is a family name. (Kaho's) and the other is “ten letters”.

so the thief is challenging Kotenbu? since 'Ko' is the 10th Japanese alphabet.
And Kotenbu's the last club in the flyer's club listing, where the thief left open. Maybe it's an advertising attempt by said 'thief'?

The second half got better, the whole episode was okay I guess.

I'm surprise that some people here don't know that the whole agument beteen Mayaka and her sempai is a set up........

- At 16.36 Club president get up and goes to post a poster along with Sempai "Just as planned" face LOL
- Girl at war poster at 19.21

This scene is very well done, actually.

Hyouka is a mystery, so this case may be “stolen case”, I think.
I think(hope) the thief may be Togaichi or somebody in Wall-newspaper club.

To me it just seems that the president just took the oportunity to bring more people, but i guess we will see.

loved the new op! it's so oreki-ish. though I can't say it's better than the first op.
the ed is so AWESOME!!

and ep 13 is kinda cute too :D can't wait for the next ep, and Oreki solving the case of the missing "things". And also, oreki's curiosity is <3. He got so nervous when Chitanda asked him about the pics. Awkward. Pure win XD

I heard that and as soon as i did.......That jungle board game came to mind....No joke...XD

I actually figured the thing with Mayaka was planned too. I think Mayaka knew what the girl was doing too. At least that's what i got from the subs. Either way, i didn't notice that the "Girls at War" thing was for the manga club until someone on this thread mentioned it haha.

Oreki's situation he keeps getting put through while sitting there kinda reminds me of the red paper clip....He keeps trading seemingly useless objects for random items. Although i think the number is more useful than the toy gun....But we haven't seen what he'll be trading the gun in for yet though....

Chitanda found out about Oreki seeing her cosplay photos. xD

I'm still a bit confused what the whole fight in the Manga society was about. Well, I know what it was about, but why was she smirking and just deliberately baiting Mayaka like that?

Nice touch there by KyoAni lol.


Noticed that too, and seems that the other one is Yui. :P Nice ep, we got some OrekixChitanda teasing so they better give us more OrekixChitanda. :D The new OP is funny. Can't get enough of Chitanda, so cute.

I like the previous OP better, I think. The beginning is the weakest - I feel like the OP for a quiet, slow-paced show should start just a bit louder. Just like this:

"Quiet slice of life, quiet slice of life, quiet slice- OPENING, YOU ARE NOW EXCITED BECAUSE THE NEW EPISODE OF THE SHOW STARTS, YEAH! -of life, quiet slice of life..."

Not like:

"Quiet slice of life, quiet slice of life, quiet slice- hey, who turned off the volume... Ah, the opening began... Well... Okay... Now back to the quiet slice of life..."

But we got visually better ED though. Yes, I think I like the previous ED music a bit more, though the I-think-it-was-supposed-to-be fanservice was just so out of place...

Little Mayaka was all Kininarimasu! when reading that manga, so adorable. And who would think that just seeing her room could made me like her about ten times more for some reason.

Like the festival so far, it has a nice feeling in it, makes me lightened up after the ep finishes. Ibara, Ganbare~
New OP is cool, though really liked the previous one, specially the music. I think this one is nice too. (...the last part :P)

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?


lol, and then he ends up trading things until he gets a house like in that story a couple years back.



The red paperclip story? I was thinking about the same thing

It seems like Mayaka and her Sempai are the only ones that are really in conflict with each other. The Sempai got her way having the club cosplay and Mayaka got her way writing the Manga review book. All the rest of the club members are just trying to stay out of their way. Except for the club president, of course, who is using their clash of personalities for promotional purpose. "Priestess vs. the sexless being." Very funny.

Because of the pen Oreki was give at the start of the arc, I get the feeling his Sister must be behind the mystery of the stolen items. Somehow the way he is trading things up is going to dovetail into the items that have been stolen, and when Oreki solves the mystery, it will end up promoting the Classics Club. But none of that that will happen until Chitanda admits she is curious about it. She's holding it in because she doesn't want to distract the club from selling their annual.
