The Shorts Club

Welcome to The Shorts Club

Home of Lovers of The Short Anime

The only rule we have is that the anime must be 15 minutes or less, but can include compilations of shorts.

Since there are well over 1000 shorts listed on the MAL database it was decided to make the relation list organic so if you have seen or discover a short not listed then just tell us here, and one of us will update. If you discover something not on the MAL database then also tell us and we can update for you.

A Short Review section here.

Looking for specials or commercials? Check them out here: The Shorts Club (Specials) and The Shorts Club (Commercials).

So fellow shorties have fun and remember a club is only as good as its members

@Scraps Thanks,I'll take a look at Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken,it looks very similar to Okusama.

Check out the Geidai Animation youtube channel. They've uploaded a lot of their student shorts.

I don't know if this is the right area to post this.

New entry on MAL: Hietsuki Bushi (music 4 mins)

Scraps | Jan 30, 11:24 AM
-Dated by comparison but somewhat similar:
Final Approach
-similiar in the same crude ecchi comedy aspect:
Hen Zemi (tv)
30-sai no Hoken Taiiku
-Just another random short worth stating for likely enjoyment:
Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken

Now there's alot that aren't shorts, but are still "small" by being 1-2 season lengths of around 12 eps as well, but should those also be an option you could just try looking at the recs on individual anime pages to find quite a few.
Also your ptw is getting rather lengthy, I'd maybe start getting to those before by the time you do, you find your no longer interested in them :P

Does anyone know an anime like Okusama ga Seitokaichou! that is small

I downloaded all of Ito Takashi's shorts from Anonymoose, but many of them are not in database.

12gatsu no Kakurenbo
Gi - Souchi Mi
Monochrome Head
Shizuka na Ichinichi
The Moon

He's quite an interesting filmmaker btw.

Metronome is not.

vivi is.

Go Go Yuurei Bune is not. Though I'm not sure if it qualifies for the database since it's like a motion comic. Same issue with the 12 second Station ID.

Koi to Byounetsu is not.

In the ハチ / HACHI folder:
Wonderland to Hitsuji no Uta is not. It's not a part of a label (like music label such as Sony or Warner) so I'm not sure again if it qualifies for the DB. Like what are the unwritten rules of Music Vids? Do they only get to join if the song itself is released through a label?
Pretty much everything in that folder is his early work so it's a lot of ifs, ands, and buts that should be asked of a DB moderator.
