Hyouka Manga Comes to an End with 12th Volume

The manga adaptation of novel Hyouka is coming to an end.

The manga, which is written and illustrated by Taskohna, is set to wrap up with its 12th volume, which comes out May 25.

Hyouka has run in Shonen Ace since 2012, the same year the novel was transformed into an anime series by Kyoto Animation. It also inspired a live-action film.

Here’s how Funimation describes the anime:

Hyouka tells the story of disenchanted high school boy Hotaro Oreki. Rarely one to go out of his way to do anything for anyone else, Oreki is pressured by his older sister to join the school’s Classic Lit Club in order to keep it from being abolished.

There he meets Eru Chitanda, a kindhearted and inquisitive girl who’s joined the Classics Club for “personal reasons.” Oreki is immediately drawn to her, but finds her endless energy a little overwhelming. After the pair is joined by Oreki’s best friend Fukube and the fiery Ibara, the club is complete. Left to their own devices the four students quickly get off track when Oreki’s talent for solving mysteries sparks Chitanda’s boundless curiosity. She has a mystery of her own to share, but first she needs to make sure Oreki’s the right man for the job.
