How do you guys feel about seasonal shorts? They've gotten more numerous over the past few years, and better in quality too.

Do you have a favorite? Is there anything you like better about them than normal shows? Or something you dislike?
>>
There's a thread up 24/7 for Galko without being necrobumped. I can't recall this ever happening for a 7 minute show before.
>>
>>138842499
Is this a good thing to you?
>>
>>138842312
I hope sushi police airs all the way until the 2020 Olympics.
>>
Aiura is beautiful, I think. Even if we're just going on a background art/style category.
>>
That Trigger one for next season looks pretty cute so far
>>
>5 to 7 minute running time
>Has to be cut with almost 2 minutes of OPs/EDs each episode.

Is there really no way to do shorten the openings/closings?
>>
>>138842933
>shortening OPs/EDs
This is heresy. And they do shorten it sometimes anyway.
>>
I always watch the first episode and tell myself I'll watch it all in one sitting once their out and never get to it.
>>
>>138842933 How is that a problem, the show itself will probably still be as long with or without the op/ed
>>
>>138843064
>How is that a problem, the show itself will probably still be as long with or without the op/ed
Maybe, but I always figured they'd have a bit more time (maybe a minute) to work into the episode.
>>
>>138843145
Yeah it did struck me at first that they use mostly the same way of doing them even with such short timeframes.
>>
>>138843145
Long OP/ED are potentially an anime method of reducing the amount of drawings they require every week. It's also important for earning money off the music single CD sales. The companies would probably just cut the show shorter to air more commercials without it.
>>
>>138843357
>The companies would probably just cut the show shorter to air more commercials without it.
Fair point.

It still bothers me a bit, but I understand
>>
Some are fantastic like Galko-chan and some others fall completely flat on their face after a handful of episodes, like Marshmallow-san.
>>
himegoto should have been 24 mins long

Waa!! should also stay running and shitty mags like jump should end
>>
>>138843490
>and some others fall completely flat on their face after a handful of episodes, like Marshmallow-san.
Which was a real shame, because I was interested in the beginning
>>
Love them
The only ones you can finish within a day very easily

Good for people who have very busy schedules
>>
>>138843488
It's part of the anime ritual so it rarely bothers me. One case where it does is for 2 minute shorts with a 30 second OP. They're so pressed for time that everyone is talking super fast over each other. Takes me like 4 minutes to watch a Teekyuu episode because of pausing.
>>
>>138843706
>Takes me like 4 minutes to watch a Teekyuu episode because of pausing.
Really?
>>
>>138842312
I used to avoid shorts, but now I love them. I usually start out with a positive opinion of something, so with a short they have less time to ruin the episode for me
>>
>>138843831
>I used to avoid shorts, but now I love them
Same here.

At first I thought the idea was kind of bad, but when I started watching them I realized how wrong I was.
>>
>>138842312
I just recently started picking up shorts (Hacka Doll, Wakaba Girls), and boy what a good choice that was. Galko-chan is objectively the AOTS.

>>138842592
When all the threads get almost 200 unique posters, yeah, pretty good.
>>
Regular episodes of anime just drag on and on sometimes, and they usually have so much padding that fills it out.
Shorts are just better.
>>
>>138842312
>How do you guys feel about seasonal shorts?
I feel pretty meh about them, I actually think some manga adaptations need to be put into a short form or it can fail. Good example is Dagashi Kashi. It would've much better as a 10 minute short.
>Do you have a favorite?
I don't have a favorite as of right now, there is nothing good airing.
But I heard Sekkou Boys was good might try that out.
>Is there anything you like better about them than normal shows? Or something you dislike?
I can't think of anything to hate about them nor can I think of anything to like about them.
>>
>>138844114
>Galko-chan is objectively the AOTS.
Better than Konosuba? Because that hit my out of nowhere and I didn't expect it to be nearly as good as it was.
>>
Yeah there are some really sick short TV shows out there. Anything Itsuki Imazaki has touched, Aiura, Teekyuu, Nandaka Velonica and Marie and Gali are favourites of mine.
>>
I wish they were all 8 minutes or so like Galko-chan. The ones that are literally a minute long or so like Ooya-san are barely worth watching because there's not enough time for anything to happen.
>>
>>138844248
>Anything Itsuki Imazaki has touched
Examples?
>>
>Just started watching Galko tonight
>Love it already
>>
>>138844350
Ai Mai Mii, Fushigi na Somera-chan and his episodes in Danna ga Nani.
>>
>>138844245
I have to say that out of all the series I'm watching, Konosuba is not one of them, it just doesn't call my attention, but I backlogged it now, will probably watch it the next season.
>>
Is this just a thinly veiled Galko-chan circlejerk or something?
>>
>>138844245
It's more memorable than konosuba, and I say that as someone who is overjoyed that konosuba is getting a second season.

>>138844615

Oneechan ga Kita will always be my favorite and there's nothing you can do to stop me.

Judging by hostility, it is.

Just saying people just need to talk about more than one fucking short, and quit fucking praising it like it's absolutely god-tier or something.
>>
>>138844615
Feel free to mention some others.

I started watching Aiura and it's great
>>
>>138844743
>>138844822
Sekkou Boys was good and I agree with this anon that Aiura is good.

I hate shorts, they tease me with a great show and I get through it in a single sitting. It's too little.
>>
>>138844785
Not him, but it is. Also people will talk about whatever they want to talk about, you can do the same but it seems you too want to talk about it.
>>
>>138842933
Galko's openings are literally a cut of various scenes from the previous episode. This is fucking retarded, because Galko is one of the few shorts that could really use a few extra minutes.
>>
>>138845033
They'd get boring if they were full length
>>
Nante is cute.

Anything Earth Star does is pretty fun to watch

Is this the sock/stocking/tights/etc. thread?

TOP TIER:

Zettai ryouki (socks, stockings). Especially flat colours in the former case, and lace with the latter.

GOD TIER:

Tights with a short, flirty skirt.

GOOD TIER:

Above-ankle socks. Zettai ryouki with non-flat colours.

SHIT TIER:

The rest.

>>138845083
Which episode exactly? Galko OP always bring new information about the characters and what is going to be the theme of the episode, and in any case it show scenes from future episodes. I thought it was amazing because that's exactly how the manga is, always start with a legend on the side giving information to the reader. I don't think it shorten the episode but instead become part of it, so you get almost 8 minutes of uninterrupted content.

>Galko is one of the few shorts that could really use a few extra minutes.
Completely agreed.

Pretty much any episode? They literally use scenes from the previous episodes in the openings, and in the case of episode 1, I'm pretty sure it used scenes from it's own episode. And no, not talking about the short character intro sequences, they are neat.

I'm okay with them when they don't have OPs/EDs that are disproportionately long.

If an episode is 3 minutes long, but an OP/ED is 30 seconds long, I feel cheated.

Choboraunyopomi is outta new stuff for him to adapt so it'll be a second season if they work together again. Wouldn't be surprised, Ai Mai Mii got one.

I absolutely love them, I think a lot of meh 24 mins shows would benefit from having a shorter run time. Rainbow days is a good example of a show that benefits from a shorter run time same with Wakaba girl. If Tomo-chan wa Onno no ko were to get an anime I hope it would be in this format
>>

Kyou no Asuka Show is one of my favourites.

>If Tomo-chan wa Onno no ko were to get an anime I hope it would be in this format
Agreed. That's the kind of show that could do a short well.

I think its a good direction for most moe anime to take. Full length shows are nice but do you really need 24 minutes of cute girls doing pretty much nothing? It's kind of nice how its just a small dose.
>>
senyuu was pretty good
>>
>>138849395
What it really is is even cuter, despite the misleading endcard art. It's hard to describe how the girls act because the writing style of the author is unique from anything I've really seen.
It's not overwritten, so for example, they're not concerned with whether the viewer knows what they're talking about or explaining why they act toward each other the way they do. Sometimes they'll say non-sequiters and really catch you off guard
>>
>>138849626

Also, why is there a Puchimas reference?

Good question. Probably an outlet for the writer's musings. It doesn't have a consistent story so it's not like Aiura and closer to Ai Mai Mii (without being batshit crazy, just strange)

They love to sell out episodes to various things. That's probably part of how they afforded to make three seasons. It's cool to see Miss Monochrome show up and what not.

I love shorts. I watch on average 3~5 shorts each season, and usually thoroughly enjoy them for how good they are while being easy to digest.

It really pisses me off that almost every short series I've ever watched has had a bunch of fags in the threads complaining that it's too short and should be full length.
