Preliminary Spoiler

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. ...

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 ...

Inferno Cop, a show where ending credits is 4x longer than the episode itself.

This is a masterpiece, but at the same time the worst shlock ever made.

This is satirical comedy at its peak and beyond. It's something that far exceeds my intellect to comprehend. This is maximum autism.

To make more sense, I'd have to copy our Lord Foggle's review on Mars of Destruction here while purely agreeing with each of the sentences and have no satirical intentions afterwards, and for me to come close to deducing what Inferno Cop is, I'd have to be born as Einstein in all my seven lives. ...

You might've heard about this anime and how people are calling it 'Anime of the Year' and 'Best Anime Ever'. Well, guess what? They're all pulling your leg. As it turns out, this anime is nothing more than an ugly, poorly-constructed web series with almost no redeeming value. Here's why:

Story: 1
Three minutes per episode isn't a whole lot of time to develop a story. Almost every episode is either a letdown or a ripoff. Among the things ripped off in this show are "Return of the Jedi," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Neon Genesis Evangelion," and of course ...

Inferno Cop is Trigger's new groundbreaking anime masterpiece. Inferno Cop is former GAINAX employee Amemiya Akira's directorial debut. He follows in Yamamoto Yutaka's footsteps as he tries to breath new life into the medium, or "save anime".

Story - 10
Inferno Cop has a deep, though provoking narrative. Beneath what may at first appear to be a shallow action comedy, resembling something one might find airing on Adult Swim, there is actually an interesting underlying social commentary. This show examines such topics as the criminal jusitce system, the medical care system, and religion. It manages to do all of this in 3-minute ...

Inferno Cop is like a combination between Ghost Rider, Strongbad, and the stoner comedy cartoons of Adult Swim. Rather than spoofing a single genre, Trigger decides to spoof a wide variety of media from Shonen to Robocop, from Marvel comics to Evangelion! This is easily the best comedy Studio Trigger has made to date!

I would like to apologize to Hiroyuki Imaishi for all the times I've spoken ill of his work! Normally I find his style of spoof to be extremely tedious, unfunny, and trying to convince people it is a masterful deconstruction when it isn't any more clever than a Setzer and Friedberg ...

When making an anime, one would like every studio has high dreams, hopes for whatever they're making becomes something worth remembering for many years, something that will stay with their viewers, hopefully change their life, even if it's a little bit, for the better and become an epic tale grandparents will tell their children. Sadly, you rarely find anime that's even worth remembering, and most series are made just with the goal of milking some money, without thinking in the true art an anime can have behind. Inferno Cop is not the case. This is a series that went outside of every cliché to create ...

When it comes to giving something a score, I don't base it off of the story, the art style, how well everything just works together. I base it off of how much fun I had watching it. So, put it on a scale of 1 to 10, I have to pick 10 because "roller coaster" isn't an option.

Inferno Cop was produced by the now critically acclaimed Trigger, and it certainly shows and fits along their other works. What you're not going to get here is a deep story, thousands of hours of people slaving over frames of animation or the best sounding show to date. ...

Inferno Cop is one of those parodies that you can just love

- Story
It was just funny nonsense about an "inferno"cop, in the first episode it seemed like some dumb nonsense, but the more you watched, the funnier the nonsense becomes.
I actually take suspicion these creators were using drugs while creating the story, it is pure nonsense, no cliches *bout time*, funny jokes, and funny side characters, this was pure fun

Now, there is nothing to say about the art, it is simple, and it is perfect for a parody, it's just some simple drawn characters, backgrounds, and some simple moving, not even a walk animation, but, ...

Inferno Cop: From The Bowels Of Hell

To be completely honest with you, I really don't know what to think of this series. The anime viewer in me found it to be a downright hilarious watch, while the critic in me found this to be a mediocre production from a relative new production company. Inferno Cop is brought to us by the production company Trigger in their first production to hit the anime market. To be honest, I can't rip Trigger that much since most production companies first works are never that good. I guess the good news for Trigger is, they never even tried to ...

This series warrants a 10 for the sheer randomness that unfolds as it runs its course. The art isn't anything special, primarily low budget still shots, but the writing is top notch. You will ask yourself at least once per minute "what the f**k am I watching?". And then you'll watch the next episode. The end of the series is one of the most catastrophic and totally random that I've ever seen, in any form of media.

First, I'm going to split this review into six points: Plot, Characters, Animation, Music, Voice Acting and Overall...

Second, review in Spanish at the end...

And, third, I hope that it will help them and they enjoy it!

Also, forgive me if my English is not very good, I'm not any expert...

Without more, begin:

Plot: It is one of the most crazy and bizarre stories you ever saw in an Anime, the plot itself has no feet or head and makes no sense. To measures that pass chapters appear more and more wefts each one more bizarre than the last, and despite the simple which is this anime, never ...

Many times Trigger has saved anime, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt, this is the best thing not only Trigger, but anyone has ever done to the anime industry.

I present to you an anime so perfect that everything else seems trash in comparison, an anime that revolutioned the industry, the single greatest anime that has ever been created: Inferno Cop.

Story: 10/10

The story for Inferno Cop is the best you'll ever see. It took all the potential that the premisse had and used it to the maximum. It's amazingly executed, with legendary fights to get you on the edge of your seat ...

“We must cut out all that is different like a cancerous growth! It is essential in this society that we not only have a norm but that we conform to the norm. Differences weaken us! Variations destroy us!” – From the Twilight Zone episode “The Eye of the Beholder”

By and large, the presence of originality has been eroding away from the world’s forms of entertainment for a while now. The cinema industry has propelled itself a shade above mediocricy thanks to a seemingly neverending stream of re-makes, basically transforming nostalgia into mountains of cash. The NFL’s motto has currently been “this is the way we’ve ...

I was hoping to write a well thought, balanced, and fair review of Inferno Cop after taking what I expected be a rather average show, I was proven wrong after finishing it in a day. Inferno Cop is one of those rare shows that really redefines the medium as whole such Akira and Neon Genosis Avangelion. Inferno Cop is an anime and that is an indisputable fact.

How does Inferno Cop achieve this? Simple, simplicity. Inferno Cop doesn't feel like its better or smarter than the audience but I feel that it thinks that its smarter since it uses the old storytelling technique of telling not ...

(Don LaFontaine voice)

“In a world rife with kid heroes receiving convenient powers out of nowhere…a world overrun with moeblobs and shallow archetypes for characters…a world ravaged by light novels more concerned with otaku references than telling a good story…one man will rise to dispense his brand of ironclad justice.”

(Insert fiery whoosh sound effect)

(start playing Die Hollen Polizei)

“From the studio that brought you Little Witch Academia comes an anime that kicks tiresome clichés to the curb. A dramatic tale of good versus evil unlike any you’ve ever seen, set in the United States of Japan.”

TL;DR version: for a 3 minute web-show from the ex-Gainaz guys that brought to you Gurren Lagann, it's a damn good throwaway show that's just chock-full of WTF action and ridiculous scenes coupled with surprisingly good SFX and VFX given the aim and budget of the project.

Back in the early time of this season (Winter 2013) when Scamp, glorious cult leader that will save animedom, hyped this up, I'm suspect that this might be a troll of the highest order. Some felt like they were trolled out of their time, but for me, this is one of the better anime that's just outright intriguing. ...

If you open a good dictionary that has been published since 2012 and look up the definition of the words perfection and masterpiece you will find that Inferno Cop is in fact the definition of those words.

When I first watched Inferno Cop I thought it was just a fun anime, but nothing special. I was wrong. Inferno Cop is in fact the deepest anime of all time. Tackling themes as diverse as the nature of God and the evils of shoplifting.

Inferno Cop communicates these themes effectively through its diverse and often morally grey characters.
2 examples of these characters from the first episode are the ...

*This is my first review, so please, bear with me*

Never in my life, have I seen something so retardedly stupid that it's awesome...until now.
Studio Trigger brings Inferno Cop to the table as thier first "production," and honestly, they did a good job.
This web-series has over-the-top action with a western comic feel to it, which makes this "anime" all the more better to watch.

Story: 3
You don't watch this for the story. It's VERY stupid..and makes no sense whatsoever.

I can not find words to describe this anime, for it is akin to the supreme manifestation of god's will, something that we foolish heathens don't deserve to feast our eyes upon.

This rating is but a mere number, assigned by a foolish man, a number that can't truly convey the essence of the sublime existence that is this anime, constrained by it's own capabilities, for it's worth can not be appraise by that which is worth less. Alas, I can not assign a greater score to this anime, this manifestation of Buddha himself, so this 10 must suffice.
