Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution. One of his famous quotes that is still repeated to this day is: "Plato is my friend, Aristotle is my friend, but my favourite anime is Inferno Cop."

To be honest, I have always regarded perfection as something that cannot be attained. However, studio Trigger managed to prove me wrong with this brilliant masterpiece named Inferno Cop. With first glance, Inferno Cop may seem like a generic action hero series, but this gem of read more

This anime…


This masterpiece,

is a revolutionary work of art that epitomizes the pinnacle of outstanding animation, deep character interaction, and well-crafted plot development. With thought-provoking themes intermixed with deep, symbolic undertones that would bring greats such as Poe and Kerouac to their knees, Inferno Cop is an instant classic that will make its mark in history.

The story covers such a wide array of dramatic and moral tales of bravery and enlightenment that it puts Homer’s epics, The Iliad and The Odyssey, to shame. From a highly emotional legal drama to a deep, symbolic conflict with an omnipotent cult, Inferno cop includes many classic themes read more

Inferno Cop comes to us from Studio Trigger, the studio Mr. Gurren Lagann Imaishi set up after he got sick of things at Gainax. This is the first anime they've put out, simply as Youtube releases. My guess is this is one of those small projects a company does so they can get used to the creation process. Lots of companies do this. Release small product where success doesn't matter at all. It's just a learning process so they know how to structure the creation process internally. But, given that this comes from those crazy ex-Gainax guys, what they produced turned out to be inspired. read more

This will be short.

I do believe for some this show has become the new "Mars of Destruction". For those of you who don't know what that show is, it is a one episode anime that was absolutely appalling in all aspects. But there's one little can't compare Mars of Destruction to this. Mars of Destruction failed to be what it wanted to be and Inferno Cop succeeded at what it wanted to be. It is a funny, show with a bizarre sense of dark humour wrapped up neatly in 3 minutes.

Inferno Cop isn't meant to be clever nor witty. It doesn't have read more

Anime: Ninja Slayer From Animation
Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer are like twins of the same feather. While Inferno Cop is more like a gag show, Ninja Slayer seems to have a strong plot. Both are highly recommended for people who want to have a good ounce of action and laughter.

Weird and nonsense comedy shorts. If you like one, you'll enjoy the other too

Anime: Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
While these shows have many key differences between each other, they are fundamentally similar for the most part. What strikes me as the foremost similarity is the bizarre way that these anime present their humorous moments. There is a lack of finesse in the way that the jokes are presented, but they more than make up for it with the sheer impact of their wacky situations that ultimately lead to a really good time towards the target audience. What's more is that the main characters are very memorable for their peculiar antics. If you enjoyed this show, then Panty & Stocking will very much be  read more

Anime: Vampire Holmes
"Inferno Cop" and "Vampire Holmes" are series of shorts with lots of physical comedy and other gags.

They both fit the description of being so bad that it's good with many trolling viewers praising them.

Both anime have awesome policemen. The main plot of these anime are about fighting evil and JUSTICE and the Main Characters are the only ones who can make JUSTICE prevail

While the premise are different, both are filled with random humor and overall bizarre style.
