Are Anime Shorts Series Actually Worth Your Time?

Or, "How about you go watch Teekyuu and Plastic Nee-san?"!

I had no idea there were super short series like this. I know I'll get a lot of flack for this, but I generally don't like watching subtitled content, because I can't appreciate the artwork and sometimes I have to rewind to catch the text, so it takes away from the immersion.

I have tried to learn Japanese in the past, so I could enjoy anime the way it was intended, but my desire to learn is governed by my wallet, and free resources haven't served me as well as I would like.

Having watched the first episode of Recorder to Randoseru, it seems like it would be a fun and not overwhelming way to break into learning some basic Japanese, provided they're all like this. The dialog is bite-size so I didn't feel like I couldn't keep up. I even recognized some of the Japanese I picked up messing around with those free language resources.

At the very least, maybe I'll improve my ability to tolerate subtitled anime.


TLDR - Short version:
Don't like subtitles.
Failed at learning Japanese.
Short anime series = good way to learn basic Japanese.
