Hyouka is another irrelevant piece of writing with no value on itself (as illustrated by attempt to cashgrab it after KyoAni success by Kadaokawa making live action movie and disastrously failing) - same as K-On, Nichijo, Hibike.
Everything that made it good was thanks to Kyoani. And unlike most studios, most of KyoAni people still work and do anime - improving year by year and becoming better. Some of the Hyouka episode directors getting own whole series and KyoAni raising generations of talent.
Its amusing KyoAni haters trying to use Hyouka as argument, because when it aired they HATED it. Same way they did Hibike or now VEG. Its litterally exact same imbecile trolls.
Now, we have not just one anime of level "best tv anime of all time", but whole three. Thank you, based KyoAni! (though Hibike main qualities more focused on movies now)
