Shorts like this are cheap to make, people in Japan watch them when they air between episodes of other shows, and they help promote the gacha game. In other cases where the chibi short is a BD bonus feature, it helps make otaku feel good that they just spent a day's wages on three episodes of anime.

I've been watching the Bang Dream shorts without seeing the show or playing the game, same with the shorts of Show by Rock and Re:Zero. Cinderella Girls Gekijou also more or less counts because (like Garupa Pico) it largely stars girls from the game who aren't in the anime, and I've only seen the anime, but I think it's great.

As to whether you should watch it, do you like zero-substance cute fluff? Or, would you like a few extra completed episodes and +1 completed title in your list? ;D

Maybe this will change your mind.


Bang Dream like Idolmaster are expensive franchises with a bunch of fans. I doubt that Miko have enough interest in comparison.

Only Puchimas and Etotama's battle scenes are any good.

I'm too spoiled by Garupa Pico so my bar for short series is raised high.

Not sure what to make of this. I loved the original series, but a mini version? I don't know...

Well even the PV contains spoilers (of sorts) from the main series so...
