[New April 2012] Hyouka

Japanese title: 氷菓
Download: available through
Genres: Mystery
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: After he entered high school, Houtarou was forced to join classic literature club, where he met Eru Chitanda. Together with his friend Satoshi, they start to solve mysteries in the school.   

First impression score: 88 - Cute and Interesting

Personal comments: Five minutes into episode one, I can't help but to notice something distinctively familiar. After looking into the staff list, I found out where I felt like this before: the director of this series is same as the director of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The tone, the feel are all so very much like Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, less the craziness. I think this definitely holds potential to be one of the most interesting series of the season.
