The earliest example (at least on Crunchyroll) I can personally recall was Chi's Sweet Home: Chi's New Address back in spring 2009.

Thanks for the info, and wow, you're not kidding, lol. I just checked the description for Chi's Sweet Home and noticed it was 104 eps long - and each ep that I quickly checked was about 2min & 50-some seconds... Personally, I can't imagine ever getting really immersed into the storyline of a series that had eps that short. But I don't know, maybe I'll try one some time. ^__^

Recently I have really enjoyed Teekyu, Poyopoyo and Chitose Get You! This season all I have seen so far look good too, Osaka Okan, Yama no Susume ( encouragement of climb ), Ai Mai Mi and Mangirl!

You shouldn't think of shorts as just pieces of longer episodes. They are a different way of presentation and have their own style. I enjoy it but they aren't for everyone. They tend to be funny, crazy, zany, action packed, not wasting any time. They are fun to marathon an entire season in a very short time, 24 minutes total for Teekyu.

Why? Little production costs maybe? Or a desperate attempt at being artistic?

I don't know, I feel like these 3 minutes animes are just rip off of the anime, "Lucky Star", that is characters saying random things that are meant to be funny.
For something so short, one would think that they'd be capable of coming up with their own unique characters instead of following a template already set by another anime.

Lucky Star is one of my favourite anime, I don't like watching something that tries to copy its format...

Almost all of these are based on existing 4-panel manga, some of which are older than Lucky Star. (As an example, the Chitose Get You! manga began publication 2 years before the Lucky Star manga, which of course preceded the anime).

Teekyu is great and taught me I should never doubt any show at first glance, length of show being irrelevant lol

I hate the short animes too. Not enough going on, no character development. It's like watching a commercial or preview. As for padding the shows list with these things to make the site seem more "attractive" to potential new members, it's being a bit deceptive. Most people join looking for actual shows, not previews, and may very well cancel their account if too many shows are this short. I know I'll be canceling if there aren't enough full-length shows coming out.

The short 3-5 minute episodes don't really bother me. They're kinda remind me of newspaper comic strips.

It's the perfect length for gag and dumb pointless stuff that doesn't have a story. Having short episodes is ideal for stuff like Hetalia, or Recorder and Randsell.

But if the makers are trying to present a plotted story in short episodes...I'd say it's because the funders can't afford full-length eps.

I haven't seen Chitose yet. I was talking about Yurumates 3D and Teekyu... both of which contain 4 leading female characters.
