The story centers around Amaya, Iwasawa, and Uehara—three "annoying, spirited high school girls with zero motivation"—and their classmates. Their daily life is "what happens when there is nothing happening."

Anime shorts are quickly becoming a new trend in the industry, and while quite a few people see them as nothing more than annoyances and most times space consuming drivel, it really isn’t the case, as they more than in one way help to promote the industry. They can be viewed as akin to indie developers, there are a lot of animation studios in japan but not all of them have the manpower or prowess to continuously dish out 24 minute episodes for 12 weeks. Shorts give a chance for the smaller studios to make a name for themselves using very limited resources, and just read more

Allow me to share my opinion on Aiura.

Three schoolgirls meet each other just before starting high school. One of the schoolgirls accidentally bumps into another, ruining the girl's ice cream cone, and their friendship soon begins!
Sounds clichéd, but story is the last thing which makes Aiura good.

Animation is really good, especially BG.

Three protagonists, three schoolgirls, three friends. I loved each of them. They are not disturbing and really good to watch.

While OP and END theme wasn’t memorable, voice acting was superb.

1)Format. (12 episodes; 4 min. per episode minus op and end theme=~2 minutes per ep.).
2)Lovely humor.
3)Beautiful animation.
4)Nice voice acting.

Short and good, read more

Both are very short and have very cute girls.
GJ-bu is similar to Aiura.
Both are lighthearted slice of life comedies about daily life in a high school. No off-color humor or nonsensical jokes.
The only difference is duration of episodes.
