»Hyouka«: KSM Anime Details on First Volume

February 27, 2022

We already reported at the end of December that KSM Anime has secured the license for the 22-part anime series Hyouka and will release it on DVD and Blu-ray. In the meantime, the Wiesbaden-based anime label has revealed the first details about the disc release.

The first volume of Hyouka is therefore expected to be released on May 19, 2022 as a digipak in a slipcase and will contain the first six episodes in the German and Japanese language versions on DVD and Blu-ray. As an extra, in addition to the already announced slipcase, there is a 44-page booklet, four art cards, the opening and ending song, trailer and a picture gallery.

When the other volumes will follow is still pending and should be announced in the near future. You can find the preliminary design of the collection slipcase under this article.

Hyouka is based on Honobu Yonezawa's Classic Literature Club light novel series, which was published in Japan in October 2001. The 22-episode anime adaptation, which ran on Japanese television from April to September 2012, was directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto at Studio Kyoto Animation, while Shouji Gatou penned the screenplay. The manga adaptation will be published in Germany by the publisher TOKYOPOP in German.

Preliminary Design of Collector's Slipcase:

This is what Hyouka is about:

Hotaro is a rather passive student. But his sister persuades him to join the 'Classic Club' so that it won't be closed. Three more members soon join, the curious Eru, his cheerful friend Satoshi and the sharp-tongued Mayaka. Together they are now trying to solve various mysterious mysteries that they encounter again and again in their club activities…
