Review of Hyouka
by tester
Posted on July 14th, 2020
Positive 9
Overall Rating
The story is about Oreki Houtarou. notihing special, just everyday with small mystery that not too important and ignorable. (sorry just write like this, because i dont care about story)

Kyoto Animation is always praised for it's good art and animation. Hyouka is by far one of the most beautiful animes I've ever seen. The characters design is designed so well and fit with their personality almost perfectly. The backgrounds were created with such detail that it felt like I was watching an anime movie instead of a tv show. Movements are also fluid and small details like the wind blowing the character's hair is also greatly done.

The soundtrack fits the anime perfectly. From comedy to drama to the start of the mystery the soundtrack fits the mood perfectly and only brings more enjoyment to the viewer. The first and second openings are also great songs.

Now the true reason this anime is so enjoyable is all about character. Oreki character is greatly potrayed, the way he think, act, and feel incredibly real and just like what i feel and think. I also liked that they draw chacater very detailed. If i see this anime not about mystery, mystery just a tool, its not important. But hey, thats the point. This show is all about character. More and more we know about this character and personality, feel dragged inside oreki's world. Even with mystery genre, after about character this show tell us more about romance than mystery. This show have best romance for me, it took long and detailed progress for just realize it. not like 'hate then love' or 'love for stupid reason' like others, this show describe that feeling into much deeper and detailed progress of experience and understanding.

I'll just say it right now. Hyouka is one of the best character depth animes for me. The mysteries are enjoyable and light. The character interaction was great.The animation phenomenal. Whats more there to say. I would definitely recommend this to people who love romance and mysteries. No, scratch that. If you like anime.Then definitely give this anime a try.
And remember, this show not about mystery, its all about character.
