Gintama

Gintama

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.

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.

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

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.

Both are gag comedy series that follow a group of private detectives as they cause mayhem, confuse everyone they run into, spend their days joking around.....basically anything apart from actually solving mysteries in a professional manner.

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

Two shows with a bunch of strange characters getting into even stranger antics. The main leads are detectives, but they don't really do as much detecting as they do goofing off or causing mischief. Strange+'s humor is a bit more crude, but if you're wanting some more ridiculous comedy than I think you're looking in the right direction here.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Both of these series are about a crew of ragtag detectives who are hired to do a variety of odd jobs. What these series also hold in common is their flood of over the top gag comedy! Inaba has longer episodes, and occasionaly takes itself more seriously, but if you're looking for a laugh and enjoyed one of these shows, check out the other!

A group of detectives work together to solve crimes generally in hilarious ways. The teams generally make things worse for each other before making it better because of their quirkiness. Comedy is totally the main goal behind both series so if you are looking for something a little more series about solving mysteries either of these titles should be skipped. But if laughs are what you are after both are a great choice!

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.
