In concert with my review for the actually A-Channel series, I decided to look up and watch the +A-Channel shorts. My ratings stay the same as the series for the reasons of consistency. You can't horribly rate an omake because it is an omake. It's like trying to study for a test with the textbook; it's ridiculous. I will say this, yes these are a series of shorts. These episodes are the little "bonus" for those devoted A-Channel fans who bought the BR or DVD of the series. Personally, I did enjoyed them because they made me laugh. It's all the same material from the read more

Art - The art style of this is a mix of moe and chibi, which really isn’t a problem and is actually very cute to watch. The characters kind of remind me slightly of “Is the Order a Rabbit?” which is another show that I really enjoyed. With the short episode run time I was surprised to see how much detail the artist put into all of the background characters. Normally shows like this will stick to silhouettes of characters that don’t speak or even have anything to do with the story, so I thought that this was a really nice touch.

There isn't really much I can say about these cute little extras, but I did enjoy that they all seemed to be taken from the strips in the manga that weren't in the normal episodes, like Nagi talking to a story display when she took her glasses off or when Tooru and Run made character bentos for Yuuko and Nagi, these little shorts are a cute little add-on to the normal A Channel series and I'd recommend watching them if you want more A Channel or if you wanted to see more of the manga strips made into anime ^^

I wasn't completely impressed with the main series for A-Channel because I thought the pacing was a bit slow. I like slice of life and I enjoyed it overall, but it felt a bit too drawn out.

In contrast, this set of specials benefits from being quick and to the point. Being familiar with the characters obviously helps, but I think these would (mostly) be enjoyable for anyone looking for a quick fix of cute and humorous slice-of-life situations. The exception would be the first special which relies on familiarity with one of the characters in order to really appreciate it completely. The others have elements read more
