I squealed so hard when Houtarou said that line "how about I take those side businesses for you"!!!!! XD only to find out it was in his imagination XD but I also squealed when he said "I am curious" to look at Chitanda's face from the front under that Sakura tree!!! XD The last 3 episodes or so made me ship Chitanda X Houtarou even harder! XD

Finally finished this series today after years of it being on hold (as it was still airing at that time)~ I really like this anime - the plot (and the way he solved those mysteries), the animation, the cinematography, the colour scheme, the music, they all contribute to making this anime an intriguing and aesthetically pleasing series to watch! And the way it's done is also very refreshing, I love it! I feel like the focus of the mysteries in this series is not the case itself, but rather how it was approached/solved, so I won't say this is a mystery/detective series or that the mysteries were all impressive or great - case in point, episode 19.

Although there were a few moments whereby I was frustrated by some of the characters, they did not pose as major issues. They still irritate me though to an extent and I wish some characters like Chitanda change - her naivety is a bit too much for me at times lol. If only there were more episodes to further develop these characters, because so far the pace of the character development (and romance) is rather slow especially for a 22-episode series, but perhaps it is just in accordance to the novels I assume. I hope there'll be a season 2 for this series! I'd love to see more of such beautiful sceneries and cinematography, and especially more Houtarou XD

Good final. At the end just not revealing more oreki Sister details. Neither showed Chitanda visiting uncle's grave. It was a good ending anyway.
I enjoyed the time that the cherry trees appeared. The reflection of Chitanda about the problems with the land was interesting. This was one of the episodes that Chitanda least smiled, glad you knew Oreki bring good words at the end for her smile again.

...really? That's how it ends? -_- Why must anime always do this to me. Oh well, at least they're trending in the right direction...

This show had its ups and downs, especially the painfully slow start, but I ended up liking it a lot. The second half was great. 7/10

Last Scene - Oreki & Chitanda in front of the cherry blossom tree:

Chitanda: " Take a look, Oreki-san.
This is my place.
All that's here are water and soil.
The people are growing old and tired.
I don't think that this place is the most beautiful.
I also don't think that this place is full of potential.
But...I wanted you to see it, Oreki-san."

My first thought was, that this means that Chitanda is the person who was responsible for the blocking of the bridge, so they had to go the alternate route, so Oreki is forced/able to see the cherry blossom tree. But maybe it's already the start of Oreki's daydream, so Chitanda never said that.

I would like to hear any other opinions about that.

„Hyouka“ was I think my first „slice of life“ animation show with realistic characters and scenery wich was still airing when I started it. I dont know why I started this show. Maybe it was because of the fantastic animation style. I remember that I watched „sakamichi no Apollon“ befor, too, but it was more a love drama show. But I liked it. „So lets try „hyouka“, too.“ I thought.

And it was different. It was a school show, but I didnt like „school shows“ this time because I was afraid that there would be to much unrealistic comedy and crazyness. But „hyouka“ was not like that what I found out really soon. I started to like it also because of the fact of solving mysteries. I am a Conan-fan and enjoyed solving murder cases with this guy those days, too. x) So somehow I felt at home while watching „hyouka“. And the main girls were really cute, too. ^^ But later the school festival ark boosted that show into my absolutely top favorite shows ever. Everything was so colorfull in its own way but cute and relaxing. On top of that those fantastic animations. It was simply done right. In addition the romance was never to much for a guy like me. „Hyouka“ was well balanced. Also besides this the general color style was kinda different. Many school shows have those strong or saturated coloration, bright colors to catch the eye. Not „hyouka“ somehow for my eyes. It felt really good watching this show. I felt really calm, peacefull and so on. A great feeling still today.

I finally fell in love with „slice of life“ and lighthearted romance or lighthearted drama and also school shows doesnt scare me any more. ^^ „Hyouka“ became some kind of special spot on my long way watching movies and shows or reading books (like for example „cowboy Bebop“ did why its for ever on #1 on my list). After all those superpower or action shows „hyouka“ finally opened a door to another world of stories for me and as I look back now those new stories (for example „no non biyori“ or „hibike! euphonium!“) or the changed view of older works before watching „hyouka“ (like some Ghibli movies) made me into a better human beeing I think. And thats why this show has a special place in my head and heart.

Because of that I was never able to watch the last episode. I think everybody knows that feeling after the very last second of a show you liked watching while airing: „Now its over … … That void …“ ;) I didnt want to have that feeling because during the second half of the show it grew into my heart and i could not wait until the next episode was aired. So as I said, I never watched the last episode and I saved that for a special moment. Well, later I found one: I decided to visit Nihon for one year and after some years it came true. First I wanted to watch the last episode at my last day in Nihon. But I found out, that I can visit the model town of „hyouka“, Takayama. And yeah, some days ago i finally reached Takayama during my bicycle tour through central Honshu. I I explored a lot of places from the show and also made it for a short time into an afterschool club from that school! =D I knew where the last episode takes place and that you can see some nice sakura blossom in this episode. I decided to watch the last episode right there. I found the place with this sakura tree. It was not spring, it was autumn, so no sakura, but still it was more I would have ever expected years before. ^^ Sometimes you have moments in life you wish you can freeze them. It was definitly one of them for me.

So, thats the intro to my personal look at the last episode of „hyouka“. x) And I was realy happy somehow, that there was no real conclusion of the story strings. I was scared all the years that it would be definitly over. But its not somehow. There is still the small possibility that there would be more at some point in the future. And somehow I can live with this feeling more than with a real ending I was so worried about. But yeah, I still made it (more) special for me. And all that feels good. =)

„Hyouka“ may not be a favorite series for everyone because its too boring or there is no real end or no extraordinary soundtrack, but who cares. For me it is more than a masterpiece until I die. i will visit Takayama again, enjoying the hyouka spots, maybe I see some guys from „my“ sportsclub at the hyouka-school again or even can visit a school festival there, too (too bad there was none at my stay there). ^^ Lets see what the future has for me! =) Until then some hyouka-music will definitly pop up in my music player or some random hyouka-pics will appear here and there and that will bring back the feels every time for sure.

Thank you, hyouka!

She was not responsible for blocking the bridge and apparently she did say these lines for real (in the book) so it was not a dream and I see it as an indirect love confession, exactly like the line "this starry sky is all I Have to offer" in Bakemonogatari.
Too bad Oreki did not say what he first wanted "What about I take care of the business side for you?" but in the end it was clear for us watchers what kind of feelings they have for eachother. That was a beautiful conclusion.


@summerwars
I got this relaxing effect from Hyouka too. I guess we could put this show in the "Iyashikei" categorie.
I love this anime too, it's my all time fav'.

The story is not over yet, there is still an arc and a new Koten-bu serie 's coming. I hope one day we get some stories when they're grown-up, in college for instance or later.

Good anime. But the ending I felt trolled when she didn't hear his words lol. Still it proves he likes her with those words. I feel like he changed a lot this series and just came to help when she asked if he could. :3
Satoshi really needs to overcome his thinking on love and just date Mayaka ! 😆

8/10

I thought in the end will start their romance, i was really glad to hear his words about this, but it was JUST A DREAM... D: Damn, It was so close... so close... ah... :c
Perfect detective, excellent slice of life, and good some sort of romance between main charaters in second part of anime.

9/10

Finally i finished it, it took me a lot to finish it due to its very boring and dull story.
I realize that Slice of Life shows are not my type mainly because there are character driven. The characters were fine but also nothing impressive, only Oreki was like 8/10 and the rest are just fine.

Though i loved the art style, it was very beautiful especially last 10 minutes in this final episode. Sounds also good even though the OST was boring.
Disappointing conclusion, it was just like any other episode, they should've made it stand out as something more memorable as an ending.

Anyway, still for a Slice of Life, I would say this anime is good, for SOL fans its highly likely to be enjoyed.

6.5/10

Not a masterpiece, but pretty damn close to being one. I'LL MISS YOU HYOUKA!! AND THE CLASSICS CLUB!!! T^T 9/10 for me.

Theorized by my brother and myself, there's probably going to be a movie. And by "probably" I mean most likely. Look at it this way:

Haruhi had a disappointing ending, only to be followed up by a 2nd season, leading into a full-feature film.

K-On season 1 & 2 both ended on a soft note, leaving us unsatisfied until the movie was announced and released. The movie gave the series a proper, expanded ending to the original.

Hyouka ended nicely, but without much impact. There's only 1 volume left; volume 5 is the largest out of the entire series. They'd be completely stupid to leave SUCH a large chunk of a story out! Henceforth, all hints lead to there being a full-feature film for Hyouka in production, presumingly adapted off the 5th and final novel.

Until then, bring on Chuunibyou!

But I don't think that the feature film we all were waiting for was released moreover it is as if they have just abandoned it.

This was a mixed bad with some interesting cases and some which were rather boring. The part I enjoyed the most about this show was the likeable cast,especially Oreki and Chitanda.

Liked this last episode,the part with Oreki and Chitanda was cute and the moment when the cherry blossoms fell down was beautiful animated. And although it doesn't seem that this show had a proper conclusion I'm still satisfied with how it ended. For someone who's lacking motivation as much as Oreki it wouldn't fit to get the girl in the end.Therefore just realizing that he's in love is a much more fitting end for someone like him. And on top of that it isn't even a romance so it's absolutely good the way it is.

A nice show overall.
Dunno which score I should give Hyouka in the end, characters were an 8 for me (Chitanda a 10 of course <3), but plotwise or better said mysterywise it was rather average = 5. That would result in a 6,5 , usually I don't round up but for the lovely characters and beatiful visuals I will give out a 7.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Houtarou saying "how about I take those side businesses for you" only to end up being his imagination. I was trolled. -_-*
Though, that would've been a good proposal.

Houtarou was once again curious. This time to see how hot Chitanda was.

Almost a masterpiece. 9/10. Loved it. It's been 5 years already but I would like to see a season 2. It needs it.

I just finished my first re-watch of Hyouka. After thinking a bit about it, I came to the conclusion that Hyouka is my favorite KyoAni show. I really hope there will be a second season, but seems like there is not enough original material to use.

Today i finish my re:watch of Hyouka after several year I've not watch it, the conclusions I've got : "this is the love story that I'd long for, love story between The Strength & The Fool."

Everyone, i have to remind all of you, in this series, Eru Houtarou Satoshi Mayaka is still FRESHMAN !!!!
I don't want them to be bounded by love-chain too soon!!!
They're still have so much time to build their 'tower of love', i hope the towers will reach the highest altitude, and it can't be accomplished only within a year, I'm i not?
There's no eternal love made from instant impulse of love!

I love how author made Chitanda Eru with her naivety and impluse of curiosity that always push Oreki Houtarou to unfold all the mystery's.
Chitanda Eru with her motherly nature's, she's really good at cooking, and she's also a smart girl, a genius on the other way, reverse from Kind of Genius of Oreki Houtarou.

What i love from Hyouka was the youth love story, the shyness, the awkward moment when they're interacts to each other.

That's why i don't need the CONCLUSION of Love Story from Hyouka, coz the series is have a long way to go to reach the end!!!!

From what I've been feel in this series, i have an impression that on their first year of interaction, is just a initial phase, a phase to know each other, it's just STARTING LINE!!!
The end of the year, The Hina Matsuri, is the end of that phase, from now on, Oreki know the importance of Chitanda for his life and so for Chitanda toward Oreki.
I don't want to discuss love story of Satoshi and Mayaka, coz that's too obvious, Satoshi with his obsession phobia's and Mayaka with her impulse to get Satoshi love, that's childish!

I guest, for Their second year on highschool, they wouldn't get a conclusion too, coz it's too early, atleast wait until the end of third year, on the graduation ceremony, at the entrance of school, or like the last episode of season 1, below the Cherry Blossom Tree, that's too romantic !!!!!

From all the anime with love story genre on it that I've watch till now, only Hyouka, can made me happy, i can feel the joy within me when i see Chitanda & Oreki face each other with shyness on their face.

But i kinda feel sad for Chitanda, she's doomed, she'd fixed destiny, no matter where she go, She'll have to face the fact, she can't escape her family, she've to inherit her family.

I long for more epic love story on Hyouka, i love Chitanda Eru.

that's from me. thanks for read my post 😂

I have to say i really loved Hyouka and all the characters in it, but i found the ending to be a little disappointing and unsatisfying. I think too many questions were left unanswered and there were too many events or character developments left unfinished such as Satoshi and Mayaka's who love situation and the fact that Houtarou changed a lot but he never really reflected on that change which i think was needed because at the start of the series he was questioning his way of life but once he changed he never said whether he thought this new way of life was better than the old or not.

Sorry for the long post guys but there it is! I'd love to see a season 2 to be honest!

The romance was nice and a bit too sad for the ridiculous concept that plagues Satoshi from last episode. He needs like a mind change or ideological change. Love is totally not the way he thinks even in terms of dedication.

Needs S2 ASAP!

Hmm, I guess your theory was somewhat right when I was talking about it in episode 16. There was definitely a spark between Satoshi and Mayaka especially from the previous episode. (even if it was indirectly)

Now if they were to do a S2, I reckon they can introduce some sort of rival mystery club against them that becomes a major hassle for them to compete against. But otherwise, this was a great series imo and a Season 2 is needed.
lol that would be pretty awkward though...😂

Wow just finished even if it left some questions unanswered it had some weird relaxing effect on me.Someone just described Hyouka aptly.
#Copied
The novel has much more feel to it and TBH I think it takes a few times reading to really grasp the message the author is trying to portray. The biggest two themes is "rose coloured life", "character growth" and "potential/talent/choice" since a majority of the cast feel they could have a better higu school life or they subject themselves to a rather limited life - Oreki with his grey life, Chitanda with her farm, Satoshi with his 'data base' claim and Mayaka with her manga. However, the novel and the anime does portray a different feel. The novel feels much more mature, especially volume 6 where everyone is in their second year and is reflecting their old selves. I promise you it's an experience but only if you keep the themes in mind and push the 'romance' away because the novel is generally about growth. Especially when you take notice of how in episode 1 Oreki doesn't bat an eye at the falling cherry tree petals while entering high school but in the last episode he's completely in awe of it after almost suggesting a route he can take for his future in business. If course, Oreki is still far from achieving his rose coloured life, especially once you notice in the last episode how he's dressed rather dully in browns and greys while Chitanda is dressed in links and green. So, in conclusion, romance is far and the story is about growth and a better life and potential.

I finally finished it. I originally started it back when it was airing but stopped. I feel like it was too much for me at the time. Luckily an English dub came out, making it so much easier to understand.

I adored this one. It was fascinating and really made you think at times. I loved the deducting and hypotheses given for every mystery. The characters were likable, the art and animation were wonderful, and I just found this incredibly endearing. Easily one of KyoAni's best works in years, up there with Amagi Brilliant Park.

The ending did take me by surprise though, it ended a bit more abruptly than I thought. Also the last few episodes were sort of a let down compared to the previous arcs we saw. I did like the every day situations they had for each episode, but they didn't resonate with me nearly as well as the ones in arcs.

Regardless, I'm happy I finished this one. It was terrific. I'd love to see more with these characters, but it's been 5 years so it's probably safe to say that this is it. A shame, but I'll be sure to come back to it and watch it again. 9/10

This comment isn't necessarily regarding the last episode, but the last arc as a whole. The ending for this arc was fine, great even. The issue is that this was the last arc, with the most intricate one being the festival. I expected a bigger mystery to finish off the story, one where Houtarou realizes his potential and evolves in to what we all know he will be one day, a legitimate detective. I ultimately don't favor this ending because of my opinion of missed potential and that I wanted more, but for what we got, I do respect this finale. I can also see why some expected a more romantically realized ending, because this arc had some build up that had seemed to be leading to that.

tl;dr

Could have used 3 more episodes with a bigger mystery to finish off the series.

Very weak anime, which one genre it supposed to be? Logic here is a total bluff, it's like MC wants to believe in his theories full of holes and prejudices but they are magically become true because of with author's permission, relations here are much weaker than in Kokoro Connect for example, 22 episodes of nothing, on of the worst anime from Kyoto Animation but still it's so pretentious and unreasonably overrated, this is how you can understand that it's a real garbage, not just something generic. Even romance here is from nowhere, absolutely typical cheap trick from not even second-tire anime but from third-tier. In fact after some time you won't remember anything from there except for pair of moments from the very end maybe. Empty and meaningless anime which trying so hard to imitate some plot and emotional weight, although it shamelessly uses the most primitive concept ever "he is fascinated by her for nothing", well she has beautiful eyes styled in Kyoto Animation and a character of little girl from kindergarten, but is this anime worth your time in terms of plot and any sense? No - 3/10.

Although it doesn’t feel like the end, it was beautiful.
Very beautiful.
To the point I feel a gap in heart.

The ending is that spring which resembles the Rose-Life came.
Satoshi doesn’t want to devote himself to someone.
Oreki became more willing to devote himself to someone.
Mayaka is trying to devite herself to someone but couldn’t.
Chitanda chose to devote herself to her village (or smth like that)

Between resposibilies one has to take, and ones one don’t want to.

They will continue to learn and change until they’re able to get out of their comfort zone and take responsibilty for their feelings (esp. Satoshi & Oreki)

They will continue learning from each other.

What’s gonna happen next?

I’m curious!

this ending is beautiful but it feels like there's a hole in my heart. to put it simply, uncomplete.
I think Oreki finally realized that he might have fallen for Chitanda (he is "curious" with her face as a doll and said this is what Satoshi feels for Mayaka) then he even kinda proposed Chitanda in his imagination (wanted to take care of Chitanda's farm business).
If they decided to do the season 2, I expect they're already in 2nd grade and there's new kouhai in the Classics club. I really hope they do the season 2 :((

This is so good. Just finished and didn't expect a chill anime like this to pick my interest so much. Loved the entire Hyouka and hope we will see a season 2 in future.

The ending triggered me a bit though. I shipped them and was happy when he finally said it. But they decided to go back and make it look like it was in his mind (they did that a few times in the series but stopped in the half).

That was kinda annoying but overall a great series. Loved it!

At the beginng I was prettey hyped. Than oreki said, he can the commercial part and was just saying: yes!yes!Yes! And than it was just his imagination and became so angry, that i almost threw my tablet through the room. Still good episode, but the end was "shit"

Bit of a boring last episode tbh, feels kinda unfinished. Overall still a nice watch, though not outstanding. The show lived from is characaters. Oreki was definitely the most interesting to me, Chitanda was a bit annoying at times but else just cute. The other two both were more annoying than fun to watch somehow. 7/10

Kyoto Animation, you sure know how to animate a masterpiece. Clannad, A silent voice and now this! Hyouka I'm giving you a 10/10.


Ps. K.A. ypu also did a great job in Violet Evergarden.

Meh...not my taste at all.

4/10 at best.

Decent way to conclude this anime. It's ending was mostly open but at least it did a very well job at portraying Oreki's "obsession" for Eru I mean, he even considered (in his mind at least) leaving his comfort zone and personal ideology far behind in order to still being in her life. That just shows how interested/intrigued he is with this girl.

Overall, it was a "good" series and I can understand the appeal it has between many people but unfortunately, it never caught my interest completely. Not to mention that the whole "Movie Mystery Arc" was a complete snooze fest but that's just my opinion, of course.

5/10 - Although is mostly impossible at this point, I wouldn't really mind a second season.

It had a lot of potential, but I guess it lost itself a bit among the episodes... I really, really enjoyed the slice of life, but I kept feeling like I wanted to know the characters better. I only liked the festival arc and the chocolate episode. Aside from that I felt the cases were mostly boring. I didn't like Oreki very much either, he's cute when he's embarrassed but that's about it... The only character I truly liked was Mayaka. It's weird, but it felt short (in terms of development of the characters) although some episodes were boring. If it was 52 episodes long I think I'd be able to like the characters more (?). Or maybe I would feel like I didn't know them forever. Not sure. 6/10 for me.

Hey, lady! <3



Anyway, this was a good re-watch! I'm glad I did it! This episode really shows how much Houtarou has changed from the first episode. The fact he accepted Eru's request despite the fact it goes against his motto, and his feelings for her. He didn't even hesitate!

The tease at the end though was a bit annoying, not gonna front!~ At least the entire pink/rose coloured sequence is great! The sky, cherry blossoms, and sunset were all wonderful!

And that's it! Gotta keep this KyoAni watch going so time to watch another anime!

I thought the bridge going to fall because of my classmate told me episode 22 is somewhat special or something like that (he did not spoil the episode) but they just past the bridge and see the cherry blossoms -_- and it's only 22 episodes I'm expecting 24 like others well I'm satisfied 9/10

I thought he just propose to be his wife and work for her farm but it just a thought

this is nice

I'm surprised and a little disappointed at the absence of another multi-episode mystery arc after the ned of the school festival arc.

I sometimes zoned out during the more slice of life moments, but I always enjoyed the use of deduction to "solve cases"

the animation quality is really high, the cherry blossoms and everything in this last episode felt like feature quality animation.
