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

This is one of my favorite anime series that I have watched. This isn't really a review but more like a very short summary. The show is just so fun to watch. You just have to watch it. Every episode is really interesting and it makes me wonder what the next episode will showcase.

The story is clean, makes you wonder about the historical nature of the paintings and other works of art. Its just wonderful. I actually read about some of the paintings and their painters after I watched the series. I learned alot from my read more

Anime: Bartender
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.

Anime: Master Keaton
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.

Both are episodic series featuring a competent, cool protagonist. 
reportRecommended by Gambler_Justice
Anime: Hyouge Mono
The main topics of both series are the connoisseur's appreciation of objects of art, and the unfolding of intrigues that often surround them.
The series are partly episodic, and although Gallery Fake is set in late 20th century japan, they have a similar feel and are both somewhat educational.

Anime: The Big O
Roger Smith and Reiji Fujita is very similar to each other and they both have a similar job. On top of that they both have a female assistance to help them in their work. The bond between them will also get close as the story develop.

The themes and the settings may be different to Gallery Fake, however as I remember Big O have a seinen type of story which someway is similar to Gallery Fake.
