Episode 7 of Hyouka was a bit more relaxed. The guys decided to go to a hot spring during their ongoing summer vacation. They stayed for free at an inn owned by Mayaka's relatives. This episode's mystery revolved around a shadow that looked like a person hung. It turned out that the shadow was a yukata hung to dry by a cousin of Mayaka.
I really enjoyed this episode, and the series continues to be solid but not spectacular yet. The best things about episode 7 were Houtarou's having dirty thoughts about Chitanda, and their potential romantic relationship continuing to develop. This is a strong episode that gets a 9 out of 10.
