Anime fans, get ready for a mystery-filled year because Hyouka is back to bring your curiosity again! The slice-of-life mystery series, Hyouka, is commemorating its 10th anniversary, with celebrations occurring throughout the year. Kyoto Animation's Hyouka adapted the novels of the same name by Honobu Yonezawa and aired from April 22, 2012, to September 16, 2012. The late Yasuhiro Takemoto helmed the series as the director.

Takemoto directed Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and Amagi Brilliant Park before passing away in the 2019 Kyoto Animation arson attack alongside Futoshi Nishiya, who did the character designs.
