Miss Monochrome is an anime with each episode being 4 minutes long. It is about an idol, Miss Monochrome trying to become a well-known singer in Japan. With 4 minutes each episode including the 1 minute long ED you might be wondering if it's worth it. It is definitely worth watching if you have a little time to spare and you are just looking for a laugh. Each episode will make you laugh at least once, it's guaranteed.

Story: 7

It's another story about an aspiring idol looking to make it big in Japan. Only difference being that Miss Monochrome is an android. Like most androids in read more

Miss Monochrome is a short anime of 13 4-minute long episodes. Let's dive in, shall we?

Story- 6/10.
Not much to this story as you'd expect, as the total viewing time of the entire show is about an hour maximum.
Miss Monochrome is an android whose only real motivation is to become an idol, to be able to meet Kikuko, another idol.
Although the "story" was practically nonexistant, they did a decent job - I found each episode charming and laughed a fair few times at the way it was told. They also included a little backstory between Miss Monochrome and Kikuko, which I thought was a nice touch. read more

"Well, I guess that might have have been kind of funny..."

When you're airing a 13 episode show with about 2 or 3 minutes of actual screen time each episode, you want those minutes to matter. This show manages quite the opposite, as watching through this series felt more like a waste of time than anything else, and that's saying a lot when you're hardly spending 5 minutes a week on this.

The humour is a one-trick pony. "Look at me, I'm an android who can't understand logic, I'll do anything", and it gets really repetitive as the entire show is just Miss Monochrome uttering this as read more

Both came from original concepts. Black Rock Shooter coming from a song, Miss Monochrome coming from the idol, Yui Horie.

Both are short episode comedy anime and feature some life problems with the help of anusual protagonists. If you liked Wooser, he makes cameo appearance in Miss Monochrome multiple times, while if you liked Miss Monochrome maybe Wooser will interest you because he often contemplates on various problems very passively just like Monochrome.

Main char in both show will try all they can to stand out. Except everything ends up the way they don't expect.
