Even though Hyouka is a “slice of life”, I think of it as a psychological series.
Why? Because it’s so thought provoking, introspective and deep in ways that are different to most anime.
And that’s what makes the anime quotes more thoughtful, giving you something to think about that’s relatable and relevant.
Hyouka characters mentioned in this post:
- Houtarou Oreki.
- Eru Chitanda.
- Satoshi Fukube.
- Fuyumi Irisu.

Eru Chitanda Quotes
“If someone didn’t have any pride, wouldn’t they also be lacking in self-confidence? If someone was free of greed, wouldn’t they have trouble supporting their family? And if people didn’t envy one another, wouldn’t they stop inventing new things?” – Eru Chitanda
“If you can never get angry at anything, that probably means you have nothing that you like, either.” – Eru Chitanda

“I don’t care if no one likes me. I wasn’t created in this world to entertain everyone.” – Houtarou Oreki
“The best way to tame a mystery is with another mystery.” – Houtarou Oreki
“People remember their high school days as the high point of their lives. People say these things because everyone holds fond memories of their time in high school; however, I doubt that every high school student would want to remember their school life that way. For example, if neither studying, nor sports, nor socializing are of interest to someone, what then? What if there are students who prefer to keep a low profile? Though I guess that would be a pretty lonely way to live.” – Houtarou Oreki
“I’m not against socializing, so long as it’s not tiring.” – Houtarou Oreki
“The more inexperienced you are, the more you want to show off.” – Houtarou Oreki
“If I don’t have to do it, I won’t. If I have to do it, I’ll make it quick.” – Houtarou Oreki
Satoshi Fukube Quotes
“People who are confident in themselves never talk about expectations. “Expectation” is a word rooted in giving up. It leaves you with no other choice. It makes it obvious that you’re powerless.” – Satoshi Fukube
“A joke only lasts for a moment, if it leaves a misunderstanding, it becomes a lie.” – Satoshi Fukube
“A database can’t draw conclusions.” – Satoshi Fukube
“I won’t ever be the best at anything. Or rather, you might say that I’ve stopped trying to be.” – Satoshi Fukube
“Whatever I do, I’ll always be me. I won’t tone myself down to fit in.” – Satoshi Fukube
“Even if I did win, it was boring. How can it be interesting unless you win in an interesting way?” – Satoshi Fukube
