Hyouka – 14
It’s been a while, but I’m back with more Hyouka. This week should be exciting, considering the stuff being discussed in last week’s episode. I’m going into this expecting the cooking contest and other stuff. Also I’ve been wondering if Oreki’s gonna get another strange item. We shall see…
Screencaps are gonna be short this week. The episode, while great and interesting, gave little variety of anything. Mostly is was just Chitanda and Fukube in their aprons. And also these MKV files by this group are always a little weird.
The more I watch these episodes, the more I find myself thinking, that, wow, these students really know how to run these types of things well. If my school were to have a Kanya Festival, no one would know where to start. We’re good at organizing, but that’s ‘us’ and not everyone in the entire student body. Oh, Japan. Everything from Hyouka to the schools in Persona games seem really cool. The only downside is that you have to be in school way more days than we do… Anyway, Ibara’s busy making posters and Fukube’s getting interested in club theft as well as preparing for the cook off. Chitanda gets Irisu to start offering up the Hyouka anthology in their club, and also gives her some rather questionable advice. Maybe Chitanda’s curiosity is going a bit too far. Oreki gets his strange item of the week. It’s actually not that strange, though. He trades his gun for some cookies and a bag of white powder, which is obviously drugs. Just kidding, it’s wheat flour, but for what? Well, if I were to guess, he’ll probably give it to someone who desperately needs it. The pumpkin chicks needed the gun because nothing strikes fear into people like jack-o-lanterns holding a gun that doesn’t have an orange seal at the end signaling that it’s a toy. Now for the Wildfire cook off. I’ll just refer to it as Iron Chef. So, the Iron Chef battle begins.
So the battle is underway and first up is Fukube who’s not quite as good as I thought he would be, but he’s getting there. He ends up making a single dish leaving Chitanda with a lot of options. However, Chitanda has so many things made by the end of her twenty minute period that there’s no longer any ingredients left for Ibara to use. That is, if she makes it in time. She does, eventually, but time is almost as short as the Classics Club is on ingredients. Whatever will she do? Well, Oreki comes to the rescue with his bag of drugs cleverly disguised as wheat flour. She quickly whips up some nice looking food that’s sure to win the judges over. I mean, they’ll be drugged up their asses after eating it, so obviously they’ll be tricked into claiming the Classics Club won, right? Obviously, at this point of writing, I still haven’t seen the results of the winner… They won! They beat Team Iron Chef Morimoto! Oh, and we find out that the thief took the ladle that Ibara was supposed to have. Who didn’t see this coming? This arc is so crazy!
Next week! The Juumonji Incident
