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.

If I had to describe this anime, it would be weird and random, but funny at the same time. I have no idea what I just watched, but I like it! For a 4 minute show, Miss Monochrome will definitely leave you saying, “what just happened” by the end of each episode. If you didn’t know already, Miss Monochrome is a slice of life anime.

Story: (8/10)

Often times anime that have very short episode lengths get dismissed by the community as automatically lifeless and humorless shows with little to no world-building and characterization of characters. With Miss Monochrome having four minute episodes with one minute dedicated to the ending song, one would probably assume this about this show.

Though many of the complaints may be justified, Miss Monochrome is surprisingly great for what it is and was enjoyable the whole way through.

To simplify the plot, Miss Monochrome is an android that aspires to be a Japanese idol with a manager, gigs, etc. On her way to her eventual goal, she often 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
