List Rules Anime with episodes no longer than 10 minutes.

They say big things come in small packages. That point is proven by these amazing short-form anime series. Each one delivers sizable stories with only a few minutes per episode. Ranging from comedy to romance, from the everyday to the outrageous, each series on this list is comprised of episodes with a runtime as short as 1 minute or as "long" as 9 minutes.

The short anime episodes are perfect for the fan who needs a daily does of anime but doesn't have a lot of time on their hands, or for the person who just can't sit still for more than 10 minutes. While the genre isn't as popular as its full-length counterpart, the narratives are no less relatable, imaginative, or emotional (happy and/or sad tears are a definite possibility). There is a lot to discover in the world of short stories, and these anime are worth giving a chance.
