Oreki distanced himself from things that he considered a waste of energy. while he avoided joining any non-compulsory school activities, his older sister had him joined the Classics Club so that it won't get disbanded. at the same time, Chitanda joined the club. together with Satoshi and Mayaka, they began discussing the mysteries in school that only Houtarou was able to solve.
Chitanda may appeared to be a random girl without any personality, but she was the reason that got Oreki moving, solving the mysteries that appealed to her. but despite the dark atmosphere, it wasn't about solving some serious cases but the small events and occurrences that happened within the schoolyard, which was definitely good enough for us, as the series had us completely attached to it until the very end.
