WHAT IS HYOUKA?
If you clicked after reading the title, you know what Hyouka is. But for the 2 people who have no idea what it is, Hyouka is a high school mystery novel that revolves around the main character Oreki Hautraou San who is a grey life-loving student who doesn’t wish to have colors in his life and is okay with his tasteless life.
“IF I DONT HAVE TO DO, I won’t. IF I HAVE TO DO IT, ILL MAKE IT QUICK.” Fans might recognize this infamous quote to be one of the most important character points for Hautraou as he doesn’t care what is going on around him as every other student in his school is busy joining different clubs and making new friends. Oreki San isn’t like most of the students as he seems to be a rather shy person who doesn’t like talking to people as he is trying to ‘conserve his energy’. He believes in doing nothing if he does not have to do it and if at all he HAS to do something, he’ll find ways to make it quick. Although he is lazy and an introvert, he has excellent deduction skills.
Hyouka’s sister realizes his talent and asks him to join the Classics Club to help him solve the 45-year long mystery revolving around the club room. The three other members of the Classics Club include the incredibly knowledgeable girl Satoshi Fukube, a very serious but humble Mayaka Ibara, and the wholesomely bubbly Eru Chitanda. This very unlikely group of friends have to solve the mystery the revolves around them in the form of an old dusty room. They have to also solve different side mysteries throughout the series. Before watching Hyouka Season 2know about Hyouka Season 1.
Initially, Hautraou is reluctant to let himself close to the members of the Classics Club. However, he becomes more and more interested and starts taking initiative in solving the mysteries. In a rather interesting manner, his relationship with the other characters grows stronger and he realizes that he has no problem wasting his energy on them. Know more about Hyouka Season 2 below:
Characters of Hyouka Season 2
- Oreki Hautraou San
Hautraou San is a self-centered teenager who does not care about his surroundings and has no interest in wasting his energy talking to people. As previously mentioned, one of his infamous quotes is “IF I DONT HAVE TO DO, I won’t. IF I HAVE TO DO IT, ILL MAKE IT QUICK.” He might have been true to this attitude all his life but he drops it as soon as he decides it is okay for him to waste his energy on these people. Despite being so careless about everything and everyone around him, Hautraou is actually very smart and intelligent has excellent deduction skills which help him throughout the series to solve the many mysteries lying around their school.
- Eru Chitanda
Eru Chitanda is a refreshing charm and sweet 16-year-old girl who is known for the uniquely Purple eyes. You can always catch her with a smile on her face which might be the reason everyone is so easily attracted to her. Nobody who knows her can hate her because of who she is. For a very character-driven feel, we always see her in her school uniform. She is the only daughter of a very rich family, one of the richest in the region as claimed by Satoshi when we first meet her in the first episode of the series. She is the president of the Classic’s Club and claims she has a ‘personal reason’ for joining the club. She might not be the brightest star of the bunch but she has enough itch for mysteries to stick around and solve mysteries.
- Satoshi Fukube
Satoshi might be the most important member of the club for solving mysteries as well because he is immensely knowledgeable on a lot of things that matter. He is exactly the opposite of Hautraou as he is a very cheerful and jovial person which most definitely evens out the dullness of Hautraou. He is also a member of the Student’s council and the Handicrafts Club. He might be the most accurate representation of someone who definitely regrets things after doing them.
- Mayaka Ibara
Mayaka treats herself and everyone around her with a lot of strictness. She enjoys reading manga and is also a key member of the Library and Manga society. One big reason why she joins the literature club is because of her interest in Fukube. Everything about her is very direct and she never usually keeps things to herself. She is also often found making nicknames for all of her friends. who will be in Hyouka Season 2 know more about it below:
