The series shares the same high school setting but tackles college level of social psychology in subject. There's also the angsty or grumpy yet lethargic main character which is most of the time played for jokes, though their use of humor is a bit in contrast since the other one is lighthearted, while the latter is dark and comically edgy. You also have the Queen/Empress who has a good ability in expressive persuasion through social engineering which makes you want to engineer them socially if you get my expression =P.

Both series revolve around asocial male leads that are tricked/forced into joining a club. They also have a female lead that drives their male counterpart to perform club tasks and, surprisingly, do a good job while he is at it.

They are also both high school comedies with hints of romance.

A high-school club that mostly does nothing but sometimes helps people.

Well, there's no doubt that the main male protagonist seems anti social and aloof with situations most of the time by the way he behaves. It's not until one day that they decide to join this club where he meets new people and forms interactions with them.

In a nutshell, both series features a high school life setting but among other factors, the clubs they join has a main female protagonist who is cute/pretty but often dominant in terms of her character.

Additionally, both series' clubs often gets involved with other people/events that results in drama. The main male protagonist are often reluctant   read more

Male lead just wants a peaceful high school life. Both are quite anti-social but quite have an impressive and witty personality. Both are in clubs where they're not initially interested in joining.

Let me introduce you to introvert-kun. Introvert-kun is a high school student who does his best to avoid social interaction with other people. Most people would call him a loner, but it doesn't really bother him. He has his own views on the world and he likes to share them with the viewer through monologues.
One day, however, Introvert-kun is forced to join a club. The club's only member is the school's prettiest girl and along with her, he is forced to go around on campus and help out random people with his surprisingly strong insight.

•both are about a small club in school solving situations that come there way in different meanings/purposes
•both focus on a male lead who is pretty much forced to join a club for different reasons, and interact with people he would usually not talk to
•both male leads have slightly different personalities, wereas one distances himself from everyone and everything and just sees the bluntness and cruelty of life itself, and the other just wants a cruisey high school life with his close friends where he doesnt want to use any effort at all.
•both contain the typical highschool romances, comedy, angst type genres, /> •they are similar in the male lead forced to join a club and help out situations he wouldnt want to while interacting with new people along the way and building friendships.. or breaking them

School, slice-of-life, slight mystery, and light romance series. Both have a male protagonist that dislike spending energy in socializing, a fact that may change due to joining a school club.

High school comedies about a club who solves mysteries or helps people out at their school. Both shows have great and relatable male leads: one is just plain lazy and the other is intentionally and unintentionally a loner. Both have small amounts of romance but it is not a major plot point in either.

The biggest difference is that Oregairu has more drama than Hyouka (which is about 95% comedy so that's not saying much).
report Recommended by Asfaria
They just are incredibly intriguing and similar series. Both involve rather unorthodox main characters who would love nothing better than to spend their high school lives lazing about, going about their days in peace, when they are forced into rather unorthodox clubs: the Classics Club and the Volunteers Club, which becomes a catalyst for their "adventures" and development.

Both feature fantastic writing and intriguing dialogue and are definitely worth looking into.

Clubs,Activities.Solving... Both anime`s features problem solving in which they help others solve some particular problems that they are facing.

Short and sweet, both include a lazy but lovable main male character. Both also tend to solve various issues around, on both social and psychological level. While OreGairu tends to emphasize its romance and comedy, Hyouka tried to strike with mystery. There are spices of drama, as well as slice of life seen in both series.

Both of the main characters have a new, particular way of seeing the world:
While Hachiman tends to "disdain" some of high school habits and "normal people" behavior, Houtarou keeps himself from every kind of activity, classifying himself as an "energy saver".
They are also intelligent:
The same way "Volunteer Service Club" forces Hachiman to think a little, "Classical Literature Club" and it's curious president Chitanda Eru makes Houtarou to use his (incredible) capability of deducing and solving problems.

I saw Hyouka first, and I couldn't stop remembering it while watching "Oregairu", it's just too similar for me. :)

They both have laid-back male main characters and demanding female ones. There are a few mysteries to solve and the characters grow over the course of the story. I believe that "Hyouka" is definitely the better of the two, but "Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru." was enjoyable as well.

Both male protagonists are antisocial individuals who don't really interact with others but rather observe from a distance. However, Houtarou believes that he should preserve his energy as much as possible while Hachiman prefers to avoid socializing as he's experiences many hardships from interacting with others.
Both series have a plot that surrounds both male protagonists being thrown into a club and interacting with students who eventually become their closest friends.
Both series are part of the mystery genre as the club members volunteer to work on solving unknown circumstances.
Both series have some dramatic scenarios as well as many comedic ones.

Both main characters are forced to join clubs and they both are anti social in a way. The club(s) focus on solving problems/mysteries and the main character finds new friends from the club.

Both are amazing anime. I love the two main male leads, and their main goals in life are to avoid human contact, and get through life without any unnecessary effort. The two protagonists are also forced into clubs against their will witch causes them to change (slightly). Both mains are talented and provide a huge amount of character as well as comic relief. Both characters have extremely weird relationships going on as well. Also the story arcs in both are well done.

Watch these if you want to laugh your ass off, while getting a good story out of it

Main characters and setting are identical. They both find normal school life boring and try to avoid anything related to it, but a beautiful girl ends up dragging them in the opposite direction. While the series have different focuses and goals, if you like one I highly doubt you'll dislike the other.

Both shows have similar characters, who seem lazy and they are both snapped out of their comfort zone by female characters. They have same high school setting and focus on solving problems in their high schools.

The more I look into this, the more similar these two anime are alike. Houtarou and 8man are pretty similar. They both enjoy conserving energy, seem to be loners (Although Houtarou and Satoshi are pretty close), and are in a club they don't want to be in, the Classics Club and Volunteer Service Club. Both clubs activities revolve around helping others in need and coming up with solutions to their problems. Genres are both Slice of Life, and Romance, and if you like one you will probably enjoy the other one as well.

Both revolve around high-school students' activities in their respective clubs-- the Literature Club for Hyouka and the Service Club in Oregairu. The male protagonists of both shows are generally cynical and lazy, yet intelligent people who joins the respective clubs to get more involved with people. The main difference between these two series is that the characters in Hyouka solve mysteries, while Oregairu's solve daily life problems.

1- Starring without social interest but are involved in solving problems related to the institute.

2- Shortly fanservice or ecchi.

3- The romance is most of the time as a child.

4- They differ on how to resolve the problems, one giving solution to the mystery related cases and the other through social sacrifices.

5- Development entertaining story without falling into too many topics or chapters of boring filler.

If you liked the distinct personality of the male lead of either anime then you might like the other. Both series involve clever but passive protagonists who are forced to join a club that leads them to interact with people. These series are episodic in nature or often develops a story using short arcs.

Both has INTJ main character, solving social puzzles at school. The characters' point of life just makes sense, they have great sayings. And also both series are master of character development.

The rosy high school life. The desire to achieve this life is nearly nonexistent for both Oreki and Hachiman. These slice of life series begins with our main protagonists approaching school and life in similar fashion due to their identical personalities and behaviors. The inclination to breeze through high school by doing the minimal, avoid exerting too much energy on unnecessary tasks, and to steer clear of human interactions makes them the antithesis of the students who crave the proactive life of being involved in sports and club activities.

However, they awkwardly meet Chitanda and Yukino and their lives begin to slowly change. Through   read more

Both of these anime sport a main character who is lazy, not interested in society and bad at social skills.

Both of these anime deal with a high school setting.

In both of these anime our main character is forced to participate in events he doesn't want to do.

If you liked the lazy yet smart protagonist of Hyouka, then Yahari is your best bet. It showed similar path development that led to a greater bond between the group. Both anime are great, deciding which is better is in your hands.

Both of the anime have unique protagonists who do not go with the flow. They are different than others. They don't take the roles of a hero. Although, both of the anime have romantic relations buliding slowly, they are not about romance.

Hyouka shares an apathetic, high school protagonist who, due to certain circumstances, joins a club and begins to view the world in a different way. If you enjoyed the main character and setting of Oregairu, then you will enjoy Hyouka.
