"Mangirl!" Vs. "Ai Mai Mi"

It's surely a coincidence when two four-panel manga-based anime series of almost the exact same premise and run at the same length of time arrive in the same season, yet it has happened here this winter of 2013 with the release of Choboraunyopomi's Ai Mai Mi and Kagari Tamaoka's Mangirl! Does one series fare better than the other, or do both show have their highs and lows?

Starting out here is Ai Mai Mi, which follows three high school manga enthusiasts (Ai, Mai, Mi) who wish to create their own series. Sadly they're too lazy to do so, and they find themselves spending the majority of the episode wasting time doing nothing. The short three-minute episodes consisted of mostly visual gags and puns, many of which left this reviewer with a blank stare throughout the three episodes I watched.
