Hōtarō Oreki is a high school boy, who always acts passively. One day, he enters "Koten Bu (Classic Literature Club)" as recommended by his elder sister.

There he meets Eru Chitanda, Satoshi Fukube and Mayaka Ibara. Chitanda is an intelligent and soft-spoken girl, but she turns into an embodiment of curiosity once she says, "I'm curious!". Fukube is a smiling boy with a fantastic memory, he never deduces anything on his own. Ibara is a short girl and is strict with others and herself. She loves Fukube, but he always dodges her approaches.

They begin to investigate a case that occurred 45 years ago. Hints of the mystery are buried in an old collection of works of the former members of Koten Club. The collection is titled "Hyouka".
