It is the Age of the Great Detectives. Gentleman thieves seek to steal the world's treasures with the aid of their superpowers called "Toys", while the forces of justice use their own Toys to try and stop them. Trained by Opera Kobayashi, the young Sherlock Shellingford, Nero Yuzurizaki, Hercule Barton, and Cordelia Glauca are the top students at Holmes Academy and members of the famous detective team Milky Holmes. But when a run in with the nefarious gentleman thief Arsene robs them of their Toys, the group's charmed life comes quickly to an end, banished to a squalid attic in one of the academy's dorms. Unfazed, but still hungry and shamed, the girls fight to regain their powers, their old life of luxury, and their status as the world's most famous detectives.
Combined, the ever-hungry airheaded Milfeulle, voluptuous Ranpha, cold-as-ice Vanilla, regal Mint and aggressive gun-wielding Forte make up the Galaxy Angels -- an intergalactic team dedicated to finding the elusive Lost Technology! Joined by the once suicidal missile AI (now in the body of a stuffed animal), these girls must complete their mission at all costs! From finding lost pets to helping a pizzeria in debt, to infiltrating outposts full of monkeys, the work of a Galaxy Angel is never complete...
These shows are both about the silly antics of bumbling, ineffectual, but cute, heroines.
Galaxy angel has more of an older school sci fi feel, while TOMH is more like a fantasy magical girl anime. But don’t let either of these shows fool you with their girly-ness, they’re all male oriented
Both of these shows share a lot of insane bat-shit antics that will leave you in stitches. If you liked one you'll most certainly like the other. Another quick fact some Galaxy Angel va's are also in Milky Holmes.
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!
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Neither Excel Saga nor Tantei Opera Milky Holmes looks like it's going to have any adult themes in it- especially the latter, but both shows end up nudging the boundaries of what can be shown. Excel Saga sets up misleading situations, makes mature asides, and has some awkward sequences towards the end. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes has a frequently naked man with stiff nipples, ecstacy inducing attacks, and a blatant fanservice episode. If you want something that's almost ecchi, but not quite, try these on for size.
Natsuru used to be a typical student with a crush on Kaede, one of the school idols, until one day he awakens to discover that he’s turned into a busty girl! Having been chosen to become a Kampfer by the mysterious Moderators, Natsuru is now required to not only fight other Kampfers, but also to transform into a girl while doing so. Aided by a stuffed tiger, Natsuru must now battle it out with other boobalicious babes and continue to try to get close to Kaede – a task that will now be easier as she’s fallen for Natsuru’s female form! Can Natsuru keep his secret safe while maintaining his double life?
While Tantei Opera Milky Holmes looks adorable, don't let it fool you- it is just as focused on breasts, fanservice, and awkward situations as Kampfer is... just not as efficient about it. Both of these shows have plots about people with magical powers, but Tantei Opera Milky Holmes actually disguises itself as a childish show for a few episodes by focusing exclusively on its plot while Kampfer, which actually is ecchi, begins with fanservice early on. For TOMH fans who want something that looks better, Kampfer is a great choice, and for Kampfer fans who want another light and perverted show, TOMH is worth a look.
