Gallery Fake is a a perfect example of the seinen genre. It is sophisticated, realistic, and logical . . . and yes, it does have its light hearted moments. Each episode features a "mystery of the week" but what sets it apart and makes it so intriguing for me is an amazingly accurate look at the intricate workings of the art world. I have a deep love of Art History and this series touches on one great master in many episodes. It also explores other things that are art as well; things like antique watches, photo-journalism, and Pre-Columbian civilization and artifacts. read more

Possibly one of the most unique anime I have ever watched. Guarantee you will never watch any other anime quite like it. Yes there may be some that are recommended as similar but i highly doubt that they are. Basically this is the best mystery anime i have ever watched. Now yes i havnt finished it but from what i have scene so far its really good.

The story of this is quite intriguing and at sometimes hard to follow, but i think thats what makes this anime great to watch. You have to pay close attention or you will miss things. Great thing about it read more

Recommendations

The episodic nature of both shows is the biggest similarity. In each show the main character helps a new person each episode. Each episode also teaches something. In Bartender, the viewer gets to learn a lot about the histories of different types of alcohol and different types of cocktails. In Gallery Fake, each episode teaches about an artist or a style of art. Both shows are generally laid back and calming, since each show usually concludes with a problem being solved.
A very skilled and well educated Japanese man solves mysteries around the world. Another contemporary setting but the look and feel is a bit different. If you are looking for something more mature and thoughtful take a look at Gallery Fake.
