This week on mystery-lite, the gang watches a pretty amusing attempt at a Noroi (or maybe, Blair Witch Project)-esque film. I give props for conveying how ridiculously flat acting for a school movie could be.
“Hey guys, I found a severed arm on the floor!”
Funny thing about Hyouka is the fact that if there is no solution to a mystery or strong character interaction within an episode, it’s pretty easy to summarize in one sentence. It’s not like Lucky Star or K‑ON! where multiple things happen at once in an episode regardless if it’s significant or not. I can certainly understand why it isn’t the cup of tea for some people, but I (for one) am looking forward to the next episode where Houtarou deducts who the culprit in the film is.
Because I have a feeling it’s going to be extremely elaborate. I wonder how sick the scriptwriter must be that they simply can’t just ask her about it?
A pretty weak episode, since it’s Hyouka and feels like only half of a whole episode considering what we were given before (this whole episode served as a set-up for the next one, after all). I’m sure the next one will be mildly interesting, though.
