Today's Mystery Meat is Aiura. It has the reputation of "Thighs! Thighs!" and I did see that even starting with the first episode.
The art looks like JC Staff, especially the backgrounds, but they weren't involved in it.
It's another micro-anime. Episodes are one minute of OP, 2 minutes of material, 30 seconds of ED, and another 30 seconds of material for a total of 4 minutes. But it doesn't seem as if it's trying to be a breakneck comedy so much as a nice place to visit, and the pace is very comfortable, even a bit languid.
But it doesn't really work. The storytelling pace is about right for a normal 24 minute episode, and just about the time that things are getting moving, all of sudden there's the ED right in the way, and we're out of time.
And, well, I didn't get into it. After four episodes I was bored and had no urge to watch any more.
But in 1 shot, I can see it not working so well. Like any SoL series, it tends not to marathon well. Also, a few of the jokes later in work, but it's mostly just short SoL antics.
And KanaKana being hilarious.

Actually, no, there's one note.
When I formed taglines, for AIURA I put down "hopefuly not as bad as Yuyushiki; 3-minuters again?". Needless to say I turned around completely on their relative merits once the shock of HD art settled down a bit (of course Steven is not going to like Yuyushiki either).
