Characters & Voice Actors
Azazel-san is the funniest comedy you never saw. Small wonder, since in every one of its tiny episodes it manages to offend pretty much everybody and everything. If you're not touchy about religion, toilet jokes and gallows humour you will laugh your arse off.
Apprentice witch and detective assistant Rinko Sakuma summons loser lust demon Azazel to help out with her work. Unbelievably gross situations ensue.
The story is pretty much episodic, with each arc covering one standard episode or two episodes in the 12 min format this anime uses. The humour is outrageously absurd, the jokes are coming at light speed so that you might miss one if you blink. Many times you need to multitask your eyes to get everything that is happening in both background and foreground. There are tons of gimmicks and tricks and twists on popular tropes to keep you laughing well into the wee hours of the morning.
This anime shines in the character department. Despite being a comedy, each and every character feels unbelievably real and three-dimensional. In its tiny running time, this anime has produced lifelike characters the likes of which many full-time 24-episode shows failed miserably at. Let's take a look…
Azazel is the star of the show, obviously. A loser demon of lust, he suffers much bodily harm at the hands of his summoners. His antics and gross habits generate not only laughter but also sympathy. Just stop and think about how difficult it is to make a repulsive character like this appear sympathetic and yet, there he is!
Sakuma Rinko is the kind of well rounded female main character more anime should have. She's not there to provide dumb fanservice or be a damsel in distress: she actually does things, gets in trouble but digs herself out. In all the mayhem she is the most realistic character, there to anchor the viewer.
Akutabe is Rinko’s immoral boss and master demon summoner. He is so delectably badass and wickedly deadpan you can never get enough of his evil ways.
There is also a multitude of extra demons and angels and each and every one of them is hilarious. I will leave it to you to discover their absurd powers and characters.
Very pretty work courtesy of Production IG. Check out all the details they cram in.
Now, this should get top score. The music underlines many jokes and makes them even funnier and the sound effects are spot-on. I've noticed that in comedies this is much easier to do and yet, this anime uses its music to the utmost. Plus, a special mention must be made for the exceptional work of the seiyuus. Now, I don't usually bother with talking about seiyuus since most of them do great work but holy sh!t, every seiyuu was amazing here. It's easy to see they had tons of fun working on this anime.
OP: I still have this song as a ringtone on my cellphone.
ED: you only get to hear it once but it's fun.
You should definitely check this out if you liked the randomness of Gintama’s humour and are not easily offended by toilet humour and blasphemy. Else, enter at your own risk.
So, usually I think it's kind of pointless to review a series after just having watched one episode... but it makes some sense for a show like this one. I say that, because I get the feeling that you will probably know whether you will enjoy 'Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san' if you watch the first episode.
Basically, if you laughed several times like a maniac, then the show's probably right for you. If you instead scratched your head in confusion, grimaced in disgust or was rendered speechless from indignation - then it probably won't be a series you'll enjoy.
'Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san' is a gag show. The basic premise is the story of a freelance detective who harnesses the power(s) of demon(s) to aid him in fulfilling his various clients' requests - but as you'd expect of a gag show, the plot isn't that important. Not yet, anyway; the focus is on the adult humor. The comedy is crude, blunt, and most of all, ridiculous. The brand of humor reminds me more of shows like Family Guy and Southpark in their tone and crudeness.
But guess what? It made me laugh. Several times. And the first episode is only 10 minutes long.
I'll update this review, as the series goes on and my opinion evolves accordingly. For now, this looks worth keeping an eye on. If you're an adult, don't mind crude humor and aren't too squeamish, it couldn't hurt to try the first episode. read more
Cranky supernatural creatures going after each other with spastic humor. Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san is several levels higher on the obscene comedy.
Comedy style is the same though Yondemasu yo is way more edgy and funny. But Cuticle detective is a good watch if you want something in the same style.
Both are detective agencies and have demons/ otherworldly beings. Has gag comedy and violence (though much more in Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san).
Both animes deal with the supernatural, have a lot of sporadic moments, tons of humor, and some interesting characters. The only difference is Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san is crude humor. So if you don't mind the vulgar I'm sure you'll find it just as enjoyable as Cuticle Tentei Inaba. :)
In both series we have a feared detective, with underlings that help him to solve some cases along with some jokes.
Supernatural characters, crazy humor, (more or less) detective agency... it's all really similar...
azazel-san's humor is a lot more R rated though... other than that, if you like one you will like the other~
Comedy show with detective themed, similar gags. Both show contain a badass character (Ogino in Cuticle Tantei Inaba and Akutabe in Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san). Besides the setting and the character, the style that being used in both is almost the same (chibi character and hilarious responds). So, if you really enjoy Yondemasu yo Azazel-san then I'm pretty sure that you'll enjoy Cuticle Tantei Inaba as well.
Don't think, just watch. ^^
