For some reason, MAL is counting a pre-airing event on 4/14 as the "premiere" since they'll be showing episode 1 there. The first public showing will be on 4/22.

I suspect so. Thank you.

So I guess we won't be getting to watch that preair episode. Not unless... It actually airs at a station.

Oh damn, they even went as far as drawing the button for the shirt pocket on their school uniforms as well. Impressive

You often see logos and buttons worked upon in the production materials to maintain consistency between animators. I've seen those from production images from KyoAni, P.A. Works, and J.C. Staff from works in years past.

Me too. Loving the playful and mischievous look she has at times.

Well regarding the source material, I just read a few parts of volume 1. The mystery was so so, though I'm still very eager to see how it pans out for the rest of the seasons.

Well, yeah .. the mystery is more like about their daily life, it's not some crime mystery, I think. Though, that's kinda why I am interested in the first place.

Too bad there's not much lead to the source material at this point. Quite an obscure title they really picked up here.

The visuals of Hyouka really appeal to me. Very subdued colors for a Kyoani show. Mostly black and white, some brown and dark blue as a primary color. Film noir influences as it's a mystery show?

Character design is quite interesting as well. The lead girls resemble the recent "Kyoani style" but it's not by K-on's Horiguchi I think. Male lead is fairly different as well.

I haven't read up on the source material, is it set in the present day? Some images look quite retro.

The character designer is Nishida from Nichijou and Haruhi-chan. He's also been heavily involved in the process for the other Haruhi titles from 2009/2010. The source material never really had designs for the characters, so he's had to design everyone from scratch (the first cover had some designs, but were somewhat re-conned with the switch of publishing divisions).

From what I can tell, the story takes place around the year 2000.

Thanks for the info. Original designs nice, they haven't done any since Munto iirc.

To varying extents each series requires some amount of original designs for background characters like classmates, but this is the first time since Munto where major and minor characters have needed to be designed.

Excerpt from an Comptiq Interview with Futoshi Nishiya(character design) and Shoji Gatoh(series composition). Some interesting points:

Spoiler for Character's personalities:


Theres also a Newtype excerpt, but it has not much of note, so not going to translate those.

Sweet.... I wonder if there are any first impressions lying around from the pre-airing event.

That's held this Saturday. There's no way we could have impressions now.

On another note, Kadokawa has released the first four novels on their BOOK☆WALKER e-book platform. I'd say it's even more likely we'll only see those four novels adapted in this series.
