A cute ep, but not really any story development. Not that I'm expecting any in these last few eps and maybe it's for the better.

Only 3 more episodes to go, I wonder if this'll have a romantic ending or not.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Lol messing with Chitanda's head like that, loved at the end when he finds out he was actually right.

Actually let me alter the theory a little bit. Omit the whole part with student X feeling guilty and the crap with him lending money to Y or whatever. Instead it should be, "student X used counterfeit money (knowingly or not) at the store owned by the elders. After X left, the owners found out the money was counterfeit and called the police giving them a descrpition of X, who was probably in school uniform which led the police to the school." Seems a bit more realistic to me

This was actually a pretty boring episode. Apart from the little cute things between them it was just talking and deducting. I mean I liked how Oreki realised so much from such a little sentence, but the mystery itself was way too boring to keep me interested in the 20-minute-long theorising.

3 episodes left. I hope both relationships will develop.

Pleasant quest arc with Oreki and Chitanda protagonists, how to conquer his heart, Oreki? Case much more detailed and rich in deductive steps, more intriguing to the end than the previous. It's almost over! D:

Chitanda so kawaii~

the sim style clothing selection when they're talking about student x was very lol.

His deduction skill is so good, just from a few words, he figured out the crime

Chitanda cute as hell. (Thought they were gonna kiss imo)

Oreki is a boss. He can never, ever be wrong in his conclusions even if it just a game or by guessing or just trying. He didn't expect his "wild conclusion" would be so right or accurate.

Oreki x Eru. <3
Dat awkward moment when their lips were closed enough to each other. I have the urge to push them right away for them to kiss.

So no mystery detective in here, just a lot of interaction between Oreki and Chitanda, in one room scene. Damn they almost kissed, I want to see the moment...

Wow that was amazing.

Just from one announcement, he was able to deduce all that AND he gets it right at the end LOL
Oreki might earn a spot in my favorite anime characters soon :D

Okay, this episode was way too cute :3

Oreki's skills and Eru's passion! I so wanted them to kiss, but reflecting on it, it wasn't the right time. They would make such a fantastic yin/yang couple

Damn, Houtarou, you're so brillant :)

I like how Chitanda noticed that the way she acted was a bit... teasing? :P
Was so cute when she got all red :3

Only one seemingly unimportant announcement leaded to such a complex theory... And he was right! xD

I thought that the crime would be that he approached little kids since Chitanda mentionned that there was a primary school near. But Hyouka isn't that kind of anime :P

I thought Student X either stole something, or he made the counterfeit bills himself and that's why he felt guilty about using it. Also understandable as to why the shopowners would want to go to the police if he confessed to doing it. Pretty interesting to see Houtarou's thought process and how he rules out possibilities or thinks up what's happening :O
Again, way more hinting about romance ... *sigh* I guess I should have expected it. Seems like Houtarou completely forgot the point of the "game" ... and, let's be honest, we all knew he was going to be right anyway :P
Looks like we get a summer festival episode next! Kimonos! :D

This anime is very... polarizing.

I'm definitely on the fence about this show, leaning towards overall the show being too slow and boring. The mysteries are interesting, but the execution of them are pretty weak most of the time. This episode included. Which results in too many "meh" 3/5 episodes with a few 5/5 episodes sprinkled in.

Also, I know I keep complaining about this, but there is WAY too little character development, good or bad. Almost no romance, and the only character that kinda gets developed is Hontourou (although too slowly/not enough for my taste).

I however came this far, so I am going to finish.

Watch your money. Ep 19.

Plot: On an average day, an announcement asking for a student who went shopping on Halloween to come to office. This prompts a game between Oreki and Chitanda on whether he can guess what the issue was. In the end, his theory is that the student was given a counterfeit bill, felt bad for using it, and confessed. The game ends on an open ended note, which is hilarious when Oreki turns out to be right.

Character: THis was just small fun between Chitanda and Oreki. Their interaction was just pure delight. And Oreki if you want Chitanda to stay out of your face, you should discourage her by kissing her. It will totally work. ;)

Animation/it was all fun but really it was all in the expressions and dialogue.

5/5. It was just for fun.

I go where I wanna go, even if its into Oppai.

That was actually very inreresting, loved how the announcement started this chain of theories, which even turned out to be on point.

Great episode.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.
