Plot Summary: Hōtarō Oreki doesn’t like to do things that he considers a waste of energy. However, things start to change when he enters high school because even though he does not want to join any non-compulsory school activities, his older sister requested that he join the memberless Classic Literature Club so that it won’t get abolished. Unbeknownst to him, another student, Eru Chitanda, already planned to join; but instead of being free from club obligations, Hōtarō eventually joined as he is strangely unable to refuse or escape from Eru’s passionate gaze of curiosity. Together with his friends Satoshi and Mayaka, they began to discuss a variety of mysteries in school that only Hōtarō seems to be able to solve, including the mystery that lingered on from Eru’s childhood memory.

Lol, those sparkling eyes… Can’t really say I’ve ever been too much into the mystery genre in general, but there is just something about the art and the way the characters act to each other in this. It is so… Mesmerizing. Will be waiting for this one to come out for sure!

Maybe it’s just me, but I got a very cool Haruhi vibe out of this. Could be some of the same peeps are involved, so yeah. Wonder if Sentai will grab it

Of course, there’s always Funi and Nisa…that’s really bout it. I mean Bandai’s gone, MB is being extremely safe, Viz…no way, Nozomi and Discotek seem to be going for the old skool market.

Or it could show up on CR, which is still good.

Sparkle, sparkle.

Eru’s in a white swimsuit similar to what Kaname wore. :laugh:

Take this as you will…

Still no English subtitles for Kyoto Animation’s popular mystery

Q. Has Sentai ever approached Kyoto Animation regarding the rights to release Hyouka? It’s coming up on the 5th year since it came out, and still hasn’t been released overseas. Is KyoAni against releasing it outside of Japan? Tons of their anime have been released and licensed since than.

A. No news on this title, but thank you for sending in the suggestion!

Funimation May be announcing the license to Hyoka, according to this tweet:
