Written by Honobu Yonezawa in 2001, Hyouka tells the story of Hōtarō Oreki who was forced to join The Classic Literature Club in his new school by his sister. There, he met with various persons: Satoshi Fukube, the self proclaimed “database”; Mayaka Ibara, his acquaintance from middle school; and Eru Chitanda, a person full of curiosity. Oreki then got involved in a mystery from 33 years ago: about Chitanda’s Uncle, about what happen at the Kanya Festival at that year, and about the meaning of “Hyouka” itself.

The novel has inspired an anime adaptation in 2012 produced by Kyoto Animation and also a manga adaptation in the same year. The novel had also been adapted as a live action film that debuted in November 2017.
