    Do you find Anime with super short run times per- episode enjoyable? 3-5 minutes.

    This is compared to the standard 23-24 minutes per TV series episode. The most popular show I've heard of with this format is Hetalia:Axis Powers.   A comedy anime series about the various stereotypes of nations around the world. Personified into cute Anime characters.  Episodes are only 5 minutes long. I've never watched it but it does seem to have a strong online fan following.  Chii's Sweet Home being another show and episodes only run for 3 minutes.  I believe the show is about the life of a cat.

    I'm personally not a fan of this. I like the anime I watch to tell a story. Even if it's an action anime -- even if its an ecchi anime. I always want the story to be doing something interesting, and that's difficult with such short runtimes.

    I suppose it works for comedy, but then I'm very rarely interested in comedy anime. A show has to do more than make me laugh.
