Summary Edit

One day, Tomoko Oohinata brought a booklet called "Example of book report" to Geology Prep Room, which she obtained at Kaburaya Middle School. As everyone got excited, Houtarou started to feel uneasy.

In addition to the newly written short story "The Tiger and the Crab, or The Murder of Oreki Houtarou", this book contains bookshelves of the four members of Classics Club, the author's workplace view and his writing materials released for the first time! Since Hyouka was published, it is a must-read book covering "wide and deeply" Koten-bu series, which have been evolving for 15 years with Honobu Yonezawa.
