Hyouka is a mystery anime, and my first I have watched. I give the idea a 10, because not only is it not the typical school anime, it has a twist.
The art in Hyouka is probably the best I've ever seen. They are all HD and very appealing. If all anime art was like this, I'd have no worries.
When it's needed, the sound effects are always there. They aren't too much, and that's just the way I like it. Too many sounds are just annoying.
Hyouka is very amazing. So much that I anticipate every single episode to date. Honestly,
everything about this anime is great.
So, should you watch this?
Out of all the 2012 anime, this would be one of the few I would recommend. It's different, so if you don't want that typical, love story, slice of life anime with supernatural heroines, then this is for you.
