In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
These two comedic shows both revolve around a set of characters operating a small business, and are sure to entertain you with their wacky characters. Cuticle's sense of humor and gag delivery/timing is very similar to Gintama's, so if you like either show, check the other out.
In both shows you get a main character with two side kicks a guy and girl who solve incrediblely funny crimes. You also get a a crazy police/inapector and their own insane crew of side kicks. In both shows you have a lot of jokes, puns, and slap stick moments. It is safe to say if you like one you would like the other.
Both of these anime have the same exact kind of wacky spaztic "what the heck is going on here?" humor that you just kind of have to learn to expect and not question, which is what makes it funny. Kei and Shinpachi also both have exactly the same role of the straight man and usually point out the fact that nothing makes sense, personally I like Kei better though just because I think he's a better character and he's funnier. Hopefully Cuticle Detective wont run forever and get stale though like Gintama sort of does, depending on your preferences.
Rinko Sakuma thought she was working for a regular detective agency, but two months into her new job she learns that her employer, Akutabe, is actually a demon summoner who calls creatures from the depths of hell to carry out revenge for his clients. Rinko’s first experience of a demon comes in the form of Azazel, a devil whose power is to incite lust in return for an offering of food. Unfortunately, as if being harassed by the flirtatious demon isn’t enough, Rinko has been forced to into signing a contract with him for eternity! Now the innocent office worker must work with Azazel, the fecal gourmet Beelzebub and a whole host of equally deranged devils to complete jobs for the agency; though with the demons' habit of bungling tasks and making the situation worse, it won’t be easy...
Both of these shows focus on a detective agency and a cast of wacky characters. Although it can be more crude in Azazel, the gag humor (which includes characters bleeding heavily) is very similar. I think if you enjoyed one you'd like the other as well.
Both shows are about detective agencies that have a lot of strange characters that work together. Comedy seems to be the main goal of each series even though there's a undertone of attempting to solve crimes too. Basically solving crimes in hilarious random ways. Azazel-san is slightly more graphicly violent with the humour but I'm sure fans of one would enjoy the other.
Cuticle Tantei Inaba has full length episodes, but both it and Yondemasuyo Azazel-san share a comedic detective story. Cuticle Tantei is a bit cute and down right silly while Azazel-san is crude with its jokes and often violent, but the insane characters always manage to be entertaining and hilarious. Comedy reigns over plot in both these shows, so if you liked one, give the other a try.
Tsuzuki Asato is a shinigami: a guardian of death. Acting as an investigator in Juuouchou, the bureau in charge of ensuring that each soul passes through the cycle of life naturally, his job often involves dealing with those who would disrupt this cycle. His life after death is about to change, however, as he is assigned a new partner, Kurosaki Hisoka, for a case in Nagasaki - a case seeming to involve some sort of vampire. But the two shinigami soon find that something deeper lies behind this blood-sucking menace...
Cuticle Tantei Inaba and Yami no Matsuei share a sense of light humor centered around detectives. Bishies abound & both are very, very shippable. I think fans of either one would enjoy watching/shipping the other.
The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed "suicide"?
If detective agencies with strange characters at the helm are your thing these 2 anime should please. Both have plenty of comedy moments but Neuro is way more mature when it comes to actual mystery solving than Cuticle Tantei Inaba. I'm sure fans of one would appreciate the other.
She’s smart, talented, and the newest teacher at Momotsuki Academy; but she’s also… 11 years old?! Named Becky Miyamoto, this pint-sized MIT prodigy wants nothing more than to be a respectable educator, but all her students do is treat her like an adorable child! With space aliens, a class full of stereotypes (and one girl who is normal!), and a quick temper standing in her way, Becky will try her best to shape the eager young minds of tomorrow before she hits puberty!
Although the "plots" (if you can call them that) and characters of these anime are absolutely nothing alike the style and delivery of the humor is just about the same. Both of these anime will just spew out the most random things and concepts that it's just hillarious, assuming you're into that sort of thing...which you have to be in order to like either one of these, so if you want another great comedy, check out both PaniPoni and Cuticle Detective.
