I didn't even realize it was going to be a short so I was a little sad to see it wasn't longer. Oh well, shorts can be nice too as a break from normal-length episodes. The OP was... quite something, lol. It was pretty relaxing and cute, I can already tell that I'm going to like the black-haired girl.

In the way that you need to educate yourself on how demographics work. Shounen isn't a genre, nor is it a term relating the content of something.

So, in what way is this a shounen? In the fact that it's published in a shounen magazine because its target audience is teen males. That's the full factual answer and anything else is opinion.

Steve Jobs? Died of cancer? Lots of crab references?

heh

Oh is that why??? I was wondering why the OP is full of crabs!! The "news" parts went by so fast that I didn't pay attention to it the first time.
And Wooser! Should've known when I saw Wooser...lol that one sure had a ton of jokes (half that I didn't understand).

That was a nice episode though. I really love the backgrounds, very slice of life like and overall relaxing. I was sad after Yama no Susume ended, but hey, another slice of life shorts this season!

Wow I actually really like this. :D Best short of this season so far.

Well it really can only be compared to Sparrow's Hotel XD and this is much better by far.

Why do people complain about shorts being short? ...they're shorts.

Normally I'm all for shorts. this one just felt too short, with the Op and Ed taking up time. hoping the next episode gets things going

Yeah I second this, OP and ED was like more than 50% of the show. The art was so amazing too, it deserved to be longer. I suppose they didn't have the budget though.

Pretty much this, and that was short. I mean short for even a short.

> four-minute time slot
> let's do an OP AND and ED!!!

Though, in the credits the ED song was called an insert song... so maybe they'll cut that out of future episodes? (Why in the first episode, though........)

Well most of these 3~5 minute shows do have an OP and ED - it's just usually they are only around 20 seconds long at most instead of cutting into the time so much, Mr.Leepik4chanmemearrows.

idk, maybe I just haven't seen enough shorts, but all the ones that are five minutes or less I've seen have had either an OP or an ED, not both. (Two- to five-second title card and an ED, sure, but I wouldn't consider a title card an OP.) Senyu had an OP on the Nico streams, but presumably that was only because they didn't have the time restraint there.

This is CRAB anime not CRAP anime !!

Seriously, again we have a short anime this season with really good sakuga (the last one is Yama no Susume) and I think the kind of story in Aiura suits a short anime format well even though I won't mind a bit longer length (say 15min).

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Nothing much but seems nice enough. It's only 4 minutes long, and a quarter of that is the OP.


The Ending takes up another quarter, I wish it'd be longer.

Nothing really happend (I mean like, less than in most slice of life XD) but still a bit enjoyable (6/10 for this episode). I think that it's strange for a 4 minute show to have both 1 minute long opening AND ending :-O

What was up with all the crabs in the OP?

Crabs set aside, it was a sweet first episode. A shame so much of it was spent on OP and EP though, I'd have liked to see some more interaction between the girls.

I hope the episodes get longer. This is probably the only short i would consider continuing other than Hetalia and Nyoron Churuya san...however I really like this one. Maybe ep1 was supposed to be like that, as it will continue later in a high school setting where the episodes would be 20mins long...

This is the first anime I've seen that actually started a civil war i my head because Aiura's animation fiercely rivals KyoAni's up to the point where I would almost, almost say they are on the same level as #1 in my head. Only Hyouka and Tamako Market's animation would give me second thoughts.

They could use more of the airing time for the actual episodes though, instead of wasting so much on the OP and ED.

But I really love the OP and ED. The density of cuts in the OP means that I watch it several times and still find new scenes in it.

With how odd it was, I think it's possible the OP might change every episode and become it's own 'part' of the show in doing so. The ending was said to be an 'insert' song I think too? If that's true then the ED will likely definitely be doing that.

I guess I'd be okay with that.

Yeah, the ED of ep.1 is listed as an "insert song" so probably we will see a proper ED from the next episode on.

This was surprisingly relaxing, much like Yama no Susume. I didn't expect to have another wonderful short anime so early.
