Does the show get better?
"better" is a subjective thing .... I thought the first episode was a nice hook and fascinating. But if you're asking if the pace, mood, and atmosphere has changed to something *you* might find more compelling then the answer is that it probably hasn't.

I love Irisu's impact on the show. Adding a female kuudere to the cast rounds things out nicely, imo.

I find the show to be like a nice waltz that gradually adds layers of complexity (like the addition of Irisu)

Dunno, I did too fall asleep during 2nd episode. Maybe I just have really nothing to watch, so this anime looks interesting especially with that godlike animation.

First two episodes have been a killer for me too, boredom-wise. But gradually I'm starting to enjoy the series. My main issue is, putting aside the excessive speaking speaking speaking, the main characters static-ness. Probably because I prefer character driven stories over plot, mystery in this case, driven ones. But except Oreki the other three mains didn't progress much. At all I dare say. Even Eru, who had most of the interactions with Oreki didn't progress in any real direction. Her interactions don't go beyond the sparkling-eyes-move and her insane curiosity.
So I'm glad that they introduced Irisu in this arc. She seems interesting and smart enough to really interact with Oreki. I mean, not simply waiting for him to solve the mystery of the day. I hope she will be a nice opponent (i.e. since she is trying to conceal something to him for now).

I always wonder how this anime would feel, if it was narrated by one of the other members of the classics club.

Hyouka Amazon preorder ranking statistics. I like these episode titles better than the official ones.

New images from the official website.

First, promo image for the next part of the anime after the movie arc:


Next, some new characters:
Just like to make clear that while the Kotenbu novel series was set in year 2000, Hyouka (anime) is set in 2012. So the presence of Vocaloid cosplayers is certainly plausible.

I decided to watch Hyouka after reading about the show on Anime Planet.
It's my favorite anime of this year so far along with Another.

I look forward to Houtarou's expressions.

I must say that Chitanda has surely drank her cup of milk every day as a child it seems. DAMN!

Oh god, yes! I'll be fairly disappointed if Irisu doesn't show up during the whole episode.
