Aiura (あいうら) is a Japanese yonkoma shōnen manga series by Chama. It was first published on Niconico Seiga and later in Kadokawa Shoten’s 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine. The manga ran between March 2011 and April 2014. An anime television series adaptation aired between April and June 2013. The story centers around Amaya, Iwasawa, and Uehara—three “annoying, spirited high school girls with zero motivation”—and their classmates. Their daily life is “what happens when there is nothing happening.”
Aiura will just keep you in a good mood, and for that alone I recommend it. Each episode has a different story from the rest, but each one is pretty funny, and none of them are bad. The characters are all very funny, all 3 of them (plus the teacher, who is like the second best teacher ever). I’m sure you’ll like all three girls. The animation is very nice, and I like the character designs. The best part of this show though, is its opening. This is one of my favorite openings, simply for the fact that it combines crabs and Steve Jobs. The randomness! The best part is that that Jobs died of cancer, which the crab is the zodiac of. Yeah, a little messed up if that was their goal, but every time I see the opening I just burst out into laughter because I always see something different each time. Watch this show if only for the opening.
