It hurts me to see how many people just outright dislike Double-J because it wasn´t what they wanted or were used to.
Double-J, for me, was exactly what I had expected and looked forward to.
Flash animation, atmospheric live-action pan shots and Cromartie-ish nonsense with sometimes not-so-typical High School girls.
The ED is fun, the characters are amusing and I don´t see why you shouldn´t give this a go, with its 22 minutes(minus the OPs and EDs).
This show was my weekly source of peace for 4 minutes and deserves a lot better IMO.

What exactly a comedy mini-series about a club that preserves traditional Japanese arts can offer? That's what draws me to watching Double-J.

I have a mix feeling with the story; the first couple of episodes are really funny as it is centered to the main theme of the series - a couple of girls who accidentally discovered this one unique club about preserving traditional arts. What are hilarious about it actually are the arts that the people of the club are trying to preserve and I laughed really hard when the characters together with their very unique arts are introduced one by one.

I will clarify a few things.

I am a TERRIBLE reviewer and I have tried it before with my own hands.
Ever since I improved my English and grammar (Or claimed that I have) I realized looking back at them that just… Wow, how can you call those reviews?
I sounded like some kind of foreigner or caveman talking.
The writing and grammar were so bad that I practically gave myself several face-palms.
I’m freaking American and I can’t even master my own 1st language.
So this is going to be my first PROPER review that has been reviewed with time put into it.

*Note*

My grammar is still terrible despite fair improvements read more

Few anime manage to be funny. The only one I've ever laughed at was DMC, for its slapstick shock value humor, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! movie, because it was 1 am and it really sucked. I didn't expect anything from this anime. I expected it to be bad.

It is. It's worse than I thought.

Let's start with the animation. It's so unbelievably lazy. It's static backgrounds which are just pictures that weren't even drawn, and characters that stick out like sore thumbs in the foreground. I swear to God, there's a part in episode 3 where an old man sits on a bench, but the bench is read more

Anime: Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou
Same author, so similar style of humour with the punchline coming at the very end. Both are shorter than normal anime, too (4 or 12 min.)

Anime: Morita-san wa Mukuchi.
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.

Anime: Choboraunyopomi Gekijou Ai Mai Mii
Both are art clubs which has girls. Personally, I prefer Double-J. But they are really similiar. 
reportRecommended by MizukoAoki
Anime: Honto ni Atta! Reibai Sensei
Same 4-minutes-long episodes, same funny brainfucking dialogues, same crazy jokes. Drawing styles are also somehow similar. If you enjoyed honto no atta, you'd definitely like double-j.

Anime: Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Love(craft-sensei)
Same company doing with the same flash anime style.

Anime: Masuda Kousuke Gekijou Gag Manga Biyori
Fast-paced nonsensical five-minutes long high-tension comedy. Complete with easy-going student artwork style and quick-speak voicing, everything in both shows fits the description of high-tension comedy you often found in Japanese comedic content.

Double J story is written by comedic genius Nonaka Eiji of Cromartie high school, he is great with historical and cultural reference. While GMB is written by Masuda Kousuke, who write faster-paced script, but with no less historical reference, pop-culture parodies and boke-tsukkomi jokes.
