Aiura Review

I'd never heard of Aiura until a couple of days ago when I saw a gif of it on Reddit and it was pretty funny and after finding out it was a short series, I thought I'd give it a go and I'm really glad I did as I really enjoyed this show. First of all, this show is really nice looking. It's not exactly KyoAni but it's definitely better than average. It looks rather unique in that the backgrounds look like watercolor paintings and it makes for a very nice looking aesthetic. The characters are also very cute looking but are more standard slice of life fair in comparison to the backgrounds however I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the legs in this show.


As for the show itself, there isn't really much to talk about in terms of story or anything. The characters are all likable, have good chemistry and are very entertaining to watch. The show is also quite funny with quite a few jokes being packed into each episode. My only issue with the show which is holding it back for me is the length. When I said earlier to was a short show, I wasn't talking about the episode count. Each episode only clocks in at 4 minutes long and the OP is a minute, meaning you're only looking at about 3 minutes of content per episode. If the show was longer I really feel this could be something great and I'd love to see more from this series and it's characters as this really was a blast to watch. 


If you're a fan of slice of life then you have no reason not to check this out. You can watch the entire show in under an hour and it's available on Crunchyroll. It's pretty great.

8/10
