In case you are wondering about ASMR.ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.Basically, it is the nerve-tingling or relaxing sensation one gets in response to stimuli such as certain sounds or sights. In recent years, many ASMR videos have been posted on audio media such as YouTube, and ASMR videos by not only ordinary people but also talents, voice actors, and famous VTubers have become a hot topic, and it is exciting mainly for the younger generation. And now it spread its wings further afield into the mainstream entertainment industry. As the title indicates, the short anime will let viewers experience various forms of ASMR in 180 seconds. In the story, the heroine challenges her classmates to share in her hobby of recording ASMR works.
