As spring vacation comes to a close, a new school semester approaches. Deciding to make the most of the remaining holiday, Ayuko Uehara takes a stroll into her neighborhood and stops by a small cafe. However, her peaceful day is abruptly disturbed when a girl clumsily bumps into her. Left puzzled by the encounter, Ayaku is even more surprised when she meets them again as freshmen at the same high school she attends. Recognizing her from the store, the girls introduce themselves as Kanaka Amaya and Saki Iwasawa, and the three quickly become friends.

As they go through their daily lives as high school girls, the trio's distinct personalities—Kanaka's happy-go-lucky attitude, Saki's tomboyish behavior, and Ayuko's easygoingness—are sure to make every mundane school day filled with silly and fun interactions.

This one is lots of fun. The complete lack of a plot or narrative other than "girls are friends" doesn't become a problem because of the short runtime (all 12 episodes in total are about as long as 2 regular episodes of TV anime), and the show is funny and densely packed with jokes since it doesn't have a moment to spare. It even makes the punchlines land better in some cases ("brevity is the soul of wit", and all that).

The show is also gorgeous. Without the intense schedule demands of a full series, director Ryosuke Nakamura (Grimgar) directs and storyboards the entire series himself, ...

Mixed Feelings
In short 4-minute episodes, we look into the lives of three female students.The story shows ordinary life, school and friendship.
Personally, I was sorry that the anime was also short, so you can't make any demands on the characters. The story will make you laugh at times and maybe even remind you of your school days. But otherwise the story is not very imaginative.

I didn't like the opening song at all, but I liked the ending song.

They are quite simple, actually we don't learn much about them during the entire anime
which will likely be due to the length of the episodes.

The subgenre of anime "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" has gotten a bit of a bad reputation over the years...and some of it is for good reason. Most anime companies see it as an excuse to market moe girls who act younger and dumber than regular high schoolers do. While anime has always been a tool used for advertising at some point, there are just as many anime that prove you don't have to be soulless in doing so. Unfortunately, Aiura is one of the worst CGDCT anime I've ever seen. It's literally about three girls—Ayuko, Kanaka, and Saki—who just go to school, hang out, ...
