Chitanda's grandpa passed away and she wants him to her house to pray for him.

Interesting game to prove how lucky vs. skillful is the guy's analysis. The student who committed crime used fake money to buy things? And how they got it? End of analysis and Chitanda went speechless. They already forgot why the game happened. lol~

No ED.

New year ep. next ep.!

Damn it Oreki, just kiss her already!!

BTW, this episode is so enjoyable, and the flow is pretty nice. It was unexpected as well that it turned out to be true. Seriously, Oreki and Chitanda are like partners, which made me smile. :)

Oh, btw, unsatisfied Chitanda in the spoiler is just too MOE. Don't disappoint her so many times, Oreki!

Now, next episode featuring Chitanda in Yukata (or Kimono?) I'm on it!

Good episode, but not the best one to watch with subtitles. Tons of dialogue, and untranslated text. When she leaned in, I was really hoping they would kiss. Oh well.

Kyyaa next episode looks super INTERESTING!

clap clap clap, Oreki got the correct answer again! This episode was interesting, Oreki and Chitanda are very lively and they were fun to watch! I didn't expect episode 19 to be an episodic one though.

And Oreki's smile at the end was just to sweet:

Oreki is amazing
Many details just from an announcement?
I could only think that a student commited a crime, why they made the announcement in a hurry and after school and some minor details
WOW
Great episode, don't hold back Oreki, kiss her XD

Holy shit, how the hell could he figure that out?!

We need more of moe Chitanda and goddamn it, kiss already. Don't you feel like they are getting significantly closer since last episode and next week shows New Year's Eve which is the perfect chance further develop their relationship?

Oreki's messy hair is so damn funny.

I realllly hope Oreki X Chitanda happens, they will make a great couple. Chitanda is like the only one about to force Oreki to do shit.

I love how from 1 announcement Oreki came up with a whole theory that just so happen to be right lol

Mildly interesting, but this episode gave unrealistic deduction a whole new meaning. Obvious fan-service tease is obvious, blah. Hopefully KyoAni won't flop their fall show.

Oreki x Chitanda all over the place. Hell yeah, that was a fantastic episode even though with that lot dialog.
At first I thought that visiting the uncle invitation is already the highlight of this episode.
I was so wrong.

Eru was so incredibly cute. :x
And all those facial expressions from both of them! *_*
Also mind that self-mockery of this times "mystery". Lol. Genius.

Fantastic episode!

This episode was filled with an exceptional amount of excellent character and relationship development. Houtarou's ability to solve the mystery based on such small amounts of evidence was brilliant, as usual.

Despite the more subdued mysteries and the slower nature of these last two episodes, they manage to be thoroughly interesting and enjoyable due to the heightened focus on specific characters and their interactions with one another. The subtle nuances of continual character growth, particularly in regards to Houtarou, is fascinating to watch unfold, as he's noticeably becoming more energetic and willing to participate.

The steady development of the relationship between Oreki and Chitanda is fantastic as well, as they have an amazing amount of chemistry together. The visual mastery on display here perfectly embellishes their interactions with one another, capturing a variety of quick emotions very well, particularly through specific eye movements and subtle facial expressions.

The music wonderfully sets the tone in a plethora of scenes, effectively illuminating and energizing minor interactions and detailed explanations. The strong writing consistently elevates these simple mysteries into rather compelling material, due mostly to the impressively meticulous manner in which the deductions are eventually revealed. I felt the pacing flowed quite nicely throughout, never becoming dull or slowing too much.

I'm really looking forward to the next episode, since the preview hints at even more Oreki x Chitanda romance. It's really unfortunate that only two episodes remain, as this has become one of my favorite shows of the year. Hopefully the last two episodes impress just as well as the majority of the rest have.

They're really shipping that OrekixChitanda.
I still find his conclusion to this mystery a bit off. I mean, couldn't the kid be called in because he could be a witness to a car crash or some crime? I mean he made a good guess but too little evidence to come up with a full proof deduction.

God I wish the last two episodes would have some real substance but it looks like they'll just be throwing ChitandaxOreki in our faces even more. And Chitanda, as overbearing and annoying as usual.

So as the series ends, they give me episodes full of only Oreki x Chitanda, I must commend them..they are so cute together.

Next episode looks awesome. I really hope they do get together, although just seeing them interact like this is quite satisfying.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

I feel so awesome that i guessed counterfeit money before Oreki revealed that as part of his theory.
Too bad it was only a guess based on a list of possible crimes and not some deep conclusion based on a thorough thought process. xD Damn Oreki, that rationalization. You are officially my hero. Smartass.

Also, that bed hair. Lol.
It's not as tense as previous arcs, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Never have I been so captivated by an anime where two people talking to each other in a room for 25 minutes.

Loved the character development this episode :D It really seems like they're trying to get them together before the show/season ends. Next episode cant possibly not have development between the two of them lol.

So many embarrassing/tense scenes with them getting so close to each other, this show just loves to tease us :P

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

I kind of wanted it to be the Arson, but oh well.

Pretty Good episode. The flow was really good, and it made the episode move rather quickly.

Oreki and Eru's relationship seems to grow given the bunch of awkward moments in between. Oreki's character appears to enjoy solving mysteries a lot more. Speaking of which, they started this game to prove a point that it was just luck that Oreki was able to solve mysteries... but they forget that at the end of the episode.

And it turns out that Oreki was right about it deduction after all.

Next episode involves peeping tom Chitanda. Oh boy

That's also the first thing that came to my mind when the announcement was made, it was that they were trying to find witnesses to some crime.

Even though Oreki just wants to prove to Chitanda that not all wild theories work... his theory still worked! Hahahahaha.

Love their moment. Chitanda's pout... and holding the book, so cute!

Cannot wait to see the next week's festival episode! Chitanda in yukata!!!

This.
The 2nd half is definitely better than the first half (at least more enjoyable)
