With the episodes only 3 minutes each, THIGHura wastes no time delivering what it does best, delicious thighs and fresh voice acting.

It's an adaption of a 4 koma slice of life, so don't expect much plot or progression. This show has great animation to make up for this though, and coupled with its bright colour palette and characters, it'll easily make your day a little more cheerful.

Watch if for the:

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

First show this season that I finished, and I liked it. Sure it's only 4 minutes and you can finish it in less than an hour, but I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be a very fun hour. Aiura will just keep you in a good mood, and for that alone I recommend it. Each episode has a different story from the rest, but each one is pretty funny, and none of them are bad. The characters are all very funny, all 3 of them (plus the teacher, who is like the second best teacher ever). I'm sure you'll like all three girls. read more

Story: This anime is very short because it's twelve four-minute episodes, so it doesn't have much story to it. I like story as much as the next person, but because this is about the lives of three best friends in high school, I really don't mind it at all. Though there are moments that I ask myself why a certain scene exists, I just don't focus on it as much. With that said, I rate this portion a 9/10.

Art: Unless the stuff I usually watch, this anime is very cutesy in art. The style is much simpler than the styles used in anime such as read more

Anime: K-On!
Aiura and K-ON! Are comedy and slice of life anime, that take place in a school setting. Aiura’s comedy, characters and their cute personalities all harken to K-ON!’s "cute girls doing cute things" style of comedy. Both series also offer superb, very fluid and really similar animation. The only downside to Aiura is that it’s a bit short and it doesn’t have much plot development in it, compared to K-On! But it’s safe to say that if you liked watching either of them you shouldn't hesitate to try out the other.

Anime: Yuyushiki
In short, both Aiura and Yuyushiki are about cute girls doing cute things in what turns out to be an anime that has no direct story.

Rather, they both take place in a school life setting where there is a lighthearted atmosphere. The main characters are all girls and they seem to be enjoying the life of their times.

There is a lot of humor and catchy dialogue used. Among other things, there is a playful background as the characters tries out different ideas each episode.
