Q. I heard Little Busters ~Refrain~ is a really good anime, but I do not have the time nor the patience to watch the first season or play the visual novel. Can I still watch Refrain?
A. No. But if you read this guide, I will tell you which episodes of the first season are skippable, so you can get to the good stuff with minimum frustration.
Hyouka is my favourite anime of 2012. It’s also the anime that introduced me to the blogsphere at large. For various reasons, I hold it close to my heart.
So, as a tribute both to this series and to the excellent bloggers who have poured their time and energy into writing about it in detail, I’ve decided to write a post that analyses, well, other people’s analysis.
I’m going to make a controversial statement here. I don’t think it’s wrong to make assumptions about people from their tastes. I do it all the time.
