Irisu and Houtarou met to further discuss the findings on the movie. Despite his apathy and modesty, Irisu praised Houtarou for his extraordinary ability to decipher mysteries. Houtarou was reluctant to accept the praise, but something about Irisu's words appears to have provoked a big reaction on him. Just when Houtarou appeared to have figured out the mystery surrounding the movie, a new bump on the road appeared.
Episode 10 of Hyouka was enjoyable and high quality (as usual). Two things caught my attention. The first is the strange reaction Houtarou seems to be having because of Irisu. If Irisu were to be added to the main cast permanently, it could spice up the series that at times seems to lack excitement. The other interesting thing is that after an exchange about special abilities between Satoshi and Houtarou, the former declared envy for the latter. This episode gets a 9 out of 10.
