With every season of feature length anime, some studios decide that their concepts would be better executed within a shorter time frame. Well it’s either that or they couldn’t get the air time. In any case, Spring 2016 brought a few good time wasters to add to the list which for me worked out great because I had exams and didn’t have time to watch a lot of feature length shows. Here are my thoughts on the shows of Spring 2016 that had episode lengths less than twenty minutes.
I don’t know about the rest of the world but the Spring season of anime occurs during exam season over here which can have a huge effect on a weeb’s anime consumption. Apparently I didn’t want that to stop me though as I set out to watch 22 different shows as they aired. Needless to say that didn’t really happen but I got to most of them in the end. So I’m here to give a run-down of which shows I personally think are worth watching and which shows are not.
With every season, a selection of “timewaster” anime is released alongside the “real” anime. Despite what you would think, not all of these shows are worthless and I make an effort every season to try as many short episode anime as I can. This season I watched three shows with episode lengths less than 20 minutes and here are my thoughts on them.
