AIURA is my favorite show to watch this season. It’s not the funniest, nor the most engaging, nor the show I look forward to the most; I just have a really good time when the episode is going.
You see, reader, AIURA is 5 minutes long. The opening and ending are a minute each, giving each episode exactly three minutes of content? What can you accomplish in 180 seconds? Not much, but AIURA neatly fits a small round peg into a small round hole. The 4koma format really fits the slice of life genre well, and the structure translates well into the anime. Each episode is little more than two or three scenes total. There are no punchlines; AIURA merely exists, and ends before you really get a chance to take it all in.
