I've watched Angel Beats and both Little Busters anime. He's basically pulling a lot of the same stunts he pulled off in both of those, LB especially. Every episode ends with me not knowing why I expected anything different from him. Anyways, the punches are especially for the bad stuff that happens.
I recommend this to those who like this type of comedy: the quirky, awkward kid and the quirkier girls (some who are love interests), close friends, and adults that he has to deal with on a daily basis at school, all while keeping secrets for the girls (in this case, their true identities). I love episode 8 in particular because it brought out the best of all the girls' personalities in a sheerly ridiculous scenario that literally almost ends the world.
However, I can't recommend it to the same people who went into shows like Monthy Girls' Nozaki-kun expecting anything definite from the plot, like the main character getting together with the main. It is first and foremost a comedy, even with the romance elements. Just go with the sheer absurdity of everything and laugh.
To be fair, the shorts weren't treated kindly in the ANN preview guides, since they're hard to write about because of their short lengths and usually bare-minimum plots. Personally, I like pretending Aiura was the final nail back in Spring 2013 due to how it handled everything: 4 minutes with nearly 2 WHOLE MINUTES dedicated to the OP AND ED.
As for recommendations for this season, it's kind of subjective since most of them are comedies with varying styles of humor:Also, the OP is one of my favorites this season.
Wakaba Girl is yet another "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" slice-of-life comedy. However, this time, it focuses on a rich girl who's finally living her dream of being a high school girl and wants to be gyaru. I just love their character designs, personalities, and expressions, especially Moeko:
(And now it's stuck in my head again...)
Danchigai is another slice-of-life, but focuses on a family of one guy and four sisters and most of the humor is them playing off each other, sometimes in awkward, uncomfortable situations involving the older sisters. (A friend who randomly watched it on a whim complained about the "implied incest".)
The Miss Monochrome series focuses on an animated, robotic persona of Yui Horie, sorta similar to Hatsune Miku in various ways, and focuses on the character aiming to be a pop idol. I honestly don't know how to explain the humor. (And the dub of S1 is weird since it's weird to have someone else who is not Yui Horie voice her since she technically is Yui Horie...(?))
Lastly, Teekyu is set up as a "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" series, but it is in actuality an absurd gag comedy going at mach speed (and is obviously the greatest anime series of all time and space (Takamiya Nasuno Desu! included)).
As for Wakakozake, I've haven't gotten around to watching it yet.
