Lately I've been hooked on very short, compact anime.

I started with 'Yamishibai' 1st and 2nd season, and just recently watched 'I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying' What makes them so appealing to me is I can do a Pomodoro (set a timer for 20-25 min, and do something I don't like doing, like housework), and then take a short 5-10 min break and watch 1-2 episodes of the anime as a reward.

So I was wondering, without checking each individual title in the catalog. Does anyone know if there are any more really short anime's on Crunchy? Because I'm finished with the two I just mentioned, but it was working really well for me.

There are several, but IMO the very, very, very best among them is Tonari no Seki-kun

Would you be willing or able to list the others as well? I go through them very fast, though I will start with your first recommendation above, of course!

You're fast!

I was just coming back to edit (had to go find a link). Fortunately asharka has created a wonderful group that indexes the shows on Crunchyroll and one of the categories there is "short" I think you can see them even without joining the group, but if not, then do join!

The group is Rotten Sushi. Here's the main Index link (the specific link for short anime is under the Crunchyroll Characteristics heading):

If by "short" you are referring to series lengths of 14 episodes or under, I recommend three the only animes I watched here on C'roll in the past three years:
The World Is Still Beautiful / Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
Kids on the Slope / Sakamichi no Apollon
My Little Monster / Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

If you like supernatural, slice-of-life or shoujo anime, take your pick.

You're welcome. Miss Monochrome is another that I'd recommend.

Thank you, Jellybean.. I like all three and I will put those in my queue to watch!!!

I was meaning under 10 minutes, but under 14 episodes is good too.. They just won't fit into half an hour work/play cycles. but I can watch them on my Anime Mondays.. the day I set aside to make SURE I get my healthy dose of anime at least once a week

This. A million times this.

Also, I was rather fond of Hi-sCoool! Seha Girls, but I'm a Sega fanboy - so it played right into what I'm into. http://www.crunchyroll.com/hi-scool-seha-girls
