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.
-They are both animated by Trigger (also know for 2013's Kill la Kill and 2013's Little Witch Academia)
-They both have a peculiar 2D art styles making them look like a retro video game (like Final Fight, Double Dragon)
-They are both very devisive anime.
-They both have short episodes (3 minutes for Inferno Cop and 15 minutes for Ninja Slayer)
-The MCs have a strong sense of justice and are seeking revenge against a criminal syndicate
-They are both set in a dystopian city
They are both funny comedies with a surreal story although ninja slayer has some serious moments
They mark Trigger's infamous direction outside Kill La Kill, Inou-Battle, Little Witch Academia, and the currently-airing Hacka Doll.
They're known for having low-budget animation, crazy dialogue and twists, mostly undeveloped supporting characters, tropes and the like. If the mind of a little kid had made an anime, those two may be it.
Please note that Ninja Slayer has pretty much of a bigger budget than Inferno Cop, so don't expect 100% cut-out animation on the first.
When you watch a story, you want to see its hero struggle right? But sometimes, there are those stories where the hero fighting isn't the struggle, it's the world around him. Inferno Cop and Saitama never have to worry about losing a fight, but the absurd ways that the world treats them is what drives the humor and wonder of these shows.
Both have crazy diverse characters and villains who are introduced without adding much to grand scheme of the story, parodying the superhero genre and tropes. The webcomic of One Punch Man has a similar feel to Inferno Cop as well. Both have some of the best animation in the business, Inferno Cop is slightly superior in this field though.
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 worth the watch! read more
I feel that a fan of Panty & Stocking will be able to dig the silly-ness of Inferno Cop with a pleasure. Its totally nonsensical, but that's what you love right? That outrageous craziness that just leaves you blissfully wanting more. Plus its short and sweet and shouldn't really be passed up. It's made by Studio Triggre who are a Japanese animation studio founded by former Gainax employees Hiroyuki Imaishi who was the director on Panty & Stocking.
Both are ONA with short episode(s). Both have manly main characters, who both punches people and helps people. Both are comedic. Both have simple are and both have similar feeling to them. If you liked one, you´ll like another.
Short anime both done by Trigger, features emphasis on justice and the police department. Parodies many issues with law enforcement and tropes in media. Luluco has more impressive animation than Inferno Cop, but still maintain the same high octane tone that Trigger is known for.
Inferno Cop is the reason you watch Inferno Cop: Fact Files. If you haven't seen Inferno Cop and you're watching Inferno Cop: Fact Files, please explain to me why. Are you bored? Why have you seen Inferno Cop: Fact Files but not Inferno Cop itself? Are you stupid or something?
Similar papercut style of animation with a set of expressions and poses for each individual which are then reused throughout the scene. Looks suspiciously like terrible Clip art; giving both series a distinct 21st century Neo-Dadaist feel.
Quirky and outrageous. Inferno Cop is more action orientated and Thermae Romae is more-or-less trying to be informative.
They are more similar than one would think. Basically, you have two shows with a parody of anime plots that completely go off the rails. These comedic geniuses are less than three-minute long skits filled with anti-climaxes and surreal humor. So be prepared!
Cipher and Inferno Cop have the best plots available in anime. Nothing comes close to these two and if you loved one, you will love the other with the same amount of love for reasons only someone who watched Cipher or Inferno Cop can understand.
Both have cops, obviously. While Inferno Cop was made as intentionally over the top and crazy, Mad Bull actually tries to take itself seriously. Imagine a show written by Japanese who have only ever experienced New York through American cop dramas. Look forward to power suits, sex, and the infamous grenade crotch. Watch the dub for the full experience, as British VAs don their best "New Yoik" accents. One of the best bad anime ever made.
Inferno cop should be experienced by everyone, regardless of whether or not Mad Bull made you laugh your ass off. If you haven't done it yet, watch it!
While they couldn't be any more dissimilar, they are both objectively the best anime the medium has to offer. Both are short ONAs and neither will disappoint. If you haven't watched these, then watch them. It'll take a few minutes, max.
