Hyouka Episode 8


Hmm...I stand corrected. Turns out this week is the start of an arc after all. I'd say that theoretically this arc has potential for two reasons. The first reason: even though it's only a film, they're attempting to solve a murder, which tends to be a bit more exciting. Second reason is that there is a second team of detectives...although the Classics Club is only intended to be observers, there's definitely the possibility for a competition. It would be cool to see if Houtarou bites.

The film itself was pretty hilarious to watch...students trying to be dramatic is surprisingly amusing (fake scream had me in fits of laughter). Still, the girl in charge of it brought up an intriguing idea. I wonder if this is the start of the Classics Club becoming a sort of pseudo-student detective agency that others can call for help. Might give the show something to hold everything together.

Final random note: Eru on the computer was pretty funny too (L is a pretty cool nickname for her not just because of how it relates to her name but also the relationship with Death Note's crime-solving L). With the name and the computer newbie typing, I should have realized it was her, but it made it even funnier when I found out. Either way, the mystery continues next week. I look forward to seeing how this arc steers the show.

    Good overview and insight concerning episode 8. I didn't think of the idea of a potential rivals story arc but that could play out well for a component of competition. I think their only real sense of conflict has been their own interest thus far which raises real problems for some viewers I speculate to hold attention when wanting a deeper story. I enjoy the pace of the anime, when every story is about saving the world it becomes less impressive to go on that journey in an anime.

    The film was really lame and a bad attempt to portray a student production, that scream you are referring was really LOL! :D
