Hyouka Uploads Creditless Opening and Ending Ahead of 10th Anniversary Concert

Hyouka anime revealed a creditless version of the opening and ending themes ahead of the special concert, announced for January 29, 2023. Composer Kohei Tanaka, who worked on the original anime, will make a special appearance at the event. The anime is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and the concert is a part of the upcoming activities.

The KyoAni-animated series originally aired from April 23 to September 17, 2012, and it quickly gained a cult following in the anime community. The anime was directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto, who later directed Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and Amagi Brilliant Park, before dying in the 2019 Kyoto Animation arson attack alongside Futoshi Nishiya who did the character designs. Nishiya was also the chief animation director for the anime and worked on both openings and endings. Shoji Gato did the series composition and also wrote the screenplay for some of the episodes.
