Since the total runtime for this entry is about half an hour, let's make this a quick one!

Story (6) - These are just cute skits spinning off of situations and characters in the original series (whether it be the anime or manga). Nothing significant is really added, but just for fun!

Art (8) - Looks as good as the original anime. Nothing to add.

Sound (8) - Same thing as the Art. The music's stellar as per the norm.

Character (6) - Like the comments for the Story here, nothing substantial is added here. Just silly situations based off of established character traits

Enjoyment/Overall (7) - These specials were read more

You can watch all of these in less than half an hour, especially if you skip the credits at the end of each episode, so I'll try not to waste a lot of time here.

Story: 5, There wasn't really a story in the original anime, but these were extra disappointing simply because the reason that it didn't have a story was because Slice of Life + Comedy can carry themselves with just character interactions, the problem is that these specials have no comedy to speak of.

Art: 8, Nothing different here from the original series, so I can't really change this from the score that read more

It's nice to have specials that genuinely feel like more episodes of the anime. Biggest disappointments with them are that some of the plots here would have made for some nice, full-length episodes. Most notably, the siblings of Tanaka and Oota, Rino and Saya. They really did not get very much screen time at all in the anime, so seeing them have a dedicated special felt sad due to how short these are. The special with the WacDonald's worker, Saionji, felt like it fit the short length of the specials the most.

I enjoyed my time with all of these, and at the end of the read more

These episodes feel like an extension to the great series, wonderful if you finished the main show and just wanted some extra content to watch before you completely "finish" the series.

I recommend this shorter form of the show if you are on edge about watching the regular show. The episodes are shorter, they keep a similar level of comedy and maintain the same art style as the show - so, if you like this, you should like the normal show.

I found the shorter episodes to be both enjoyable but also slightly annoying - as some of the episodes would have been better as full read more
