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.

I fell in love with Kanaka Amaya!! i really like this anime because they're so funny especially Kanaka who makes me really llove this anime.. every episode was very nice that it makes you beg for more because of it short time,,, it also makes you rewatch it again and again.. the only thing that i don't like in aiura is the time..seriously, only 4 minutes and 12 episodes? with epic characters?! no way!
but still i rate it 10/10

Mixed Feelings
To be fair, this series is very short (3 minutes per episode with the OP taking up 1 minute each time) so I forgive it for not having much content in it.

...Though that excuse is thrown out the window when you spend each episode making 3 jokes at the most that fall flat due to late reactions, idiotic faces and just flat out boring interaction between the characters. None of the three main girls feel like they have much to offer except when combined with the other two for support. The side characters are just there to fill in roster spots and the setting ...

I dived into this 66 minute show amidst glowing reviews, expecting a short and sweet morsel of slice of life that you really don't see in your typical 12 episode series. I was wrong.

While the show runs for 12 episodes and has a total running time of 66 minutes, the actual show itself, barring the repeated use of OPs and EDs boils down to only 32 minutes of ACTUAL content.

And while the art and voice direction is very polished, the whole thing is soiled by a disappointing display of mediocre slice of life that surprises no one. There's absolutely nothing new here if you're ...
