Synopsis

Morita Mayu, a high school girl. She is extremely reticent and her silence and habit of looking at people's eyes straightly sometimes cause misunderstanding. The reason behind it is not because she doesn’t like to talk nor because she has nothing to say. The reason she rarely speaks is due to the fact she thinks too much before speaking, thus losing the timing to speak altogether. But she lives a happy school life with her classmates.

I admit, I didn't expect a short anime series when I added this to my list of "Plan to Watch." However, I was not disappointed. With this review we're dealing with an anime short and I'll give my reasons WHY people should or should not watch these shorts.

Morita-san wa Mukuchi is based on the 4koma, actually, IS the literal adaptation from the 4koma. With this in mind the purpose of these shorts are basically the same as the 4koma in newspapers: drop a quick funny or give a humorously warm ending. This is the point people are missing and it's understandable since we're used to read more

So at this time, I've finished all 13 episodes but MAL won't let me set it as completed >_>, but whatever, lol.

The main thing to point out about this anime is that it's 3 minutes long. A lot of people may have different opinions towards this, but I'll tell you mine. It's perfect.

They had an anime to show, but it'd be hard competing with all the other ones that have been released, especially when there is no story, no character development, or anything complex. So what do they do?, make the eps only 3 minutes long.

Due to this, someone like me who has read more

For one reason or another, many people seem to dislike or just overlook short animes. It's true that lots of them are bad, but it's also true there are some worth watching. This is...a hard choice. You may want to keep reading to find out.

There is one particular genre that some people really love and some really hate: High School slice-of-life comedies. I, personally, can tolerate them, but twenty minutes is usually too long so I tend to get bored at times. Luckily, for me and those who think twenty minutes is too long for this kind of anime, exist Morita-san read more

i had no idea this was a "short" anime series until after the first episode, in fact i thought the video player had just screwed up and cut me off :P however the anime short thing was new to me but i honestly enjoyed it. when watching this keep in mind that there's not really supposed to be a story, just short videos leading up to some cute joke or something along those lines "like reading a comic strip in the news" "actually these reminded me lots of the garfield shorts skits in-between the segments of garfield and friends." ... you can finish this whole read more

Anime: Recorder to Randoseru Do♪
Both are 3-minute long comedy series, and Morita herself does a cameo in the first episode of Recorder to Randoseru.

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Morita-san has a similar style of "realistic" slice-of-life comedy, and is presented in short episodes (much like Azumanga originally was). 
reportRecommended by Swaggletooth
Anime: Double-J
Both are pretty much the same: both are about highschool girls talking and doing random things, and both are short and school comedies. However, in Morita-san, there is more animation while in Double-J, there is really little animation expect the ED. 
reportRecommended by Rukaliini
Anime: Plastic Nee-san
A similar short comedy story about a funny life of girls. 
reportRecommended by kaonasi_mV
Anime: Lucky☆Star
they are so similar that you wont believe it, a couple of girls and their normal lives, how they interact with each other during school, and a little perverted puns, and the girls personalities are surpringly similar  
reportRecommended by walloman
Anime: Yama no Susume
In both the main protagonist are lonely girls, they don't relate to their peers but gradually they known companions with whom begin to relate.
In the case of Morita is because he thinks too much before saying things while Aoi prefers to be alone (until a childhood friend appear).
Also both series are formed by short episodes of 3 minutes.
The difference is that Morita-san wa Mukuchi is more comedy while Yama no Susume is more slice of life.
