Oreki Houtarou is a first year student at Kamiyama High School who lives by the motto “If I don’t have to do it, I won’t. If I have to do it, I’ll make it quick.” At the request of his older sister, this ‘energy-conserving’ boy joins the Classic Literature Club to prevent it from being dissolved. There he meets the ever-curious ‘ojousama’ Chitanda Eru who can’t stop thinking about any mystery that is brought to her attention. Not being able to reject her requests, Houtarou starts solving various mysteries in school with his brilliant deduction skills. Along with fellow members Fukube Satoshi and Ibara Mayaka, they begin investigating a case that occurred 33 years ago.
