Same style, same studio.

Both are played entirely for laughs and poke at story conventions by subverting, over-dramatizing, or breaking them.

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.

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

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.

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

Campy shows centered around individuals whose sole goal is delivering justice.

Manly shows with fighting evil and some (mostly unintentional) funny moments. 
report Recommended by Frezlaj
Both are incredibly over the top anime involving cops. They are also gifts from the gods that no mere mortal is worthy of laying their eyes upon. 
report Recommended by ThatRazorGuy
Both are outrageous and unapologetic seinen comedies from Hell. 
report Recommended by Kurohiki
Both feature random and often vulgar humor that will instantly appeal to anyone with that sense of humor. Every episode is a short 3-minutes so neither anime eat up too much of your time.  
report Recommended by Protaku
These anime are intended to poke fun at the genres they belong to so it works for them to be animated and/or aired in unconventional ways. Although some may view these as flaws and would rather them to be more normal, they are both the way they are for good reasons. The story of these are about characters who are far more strong or important than you would expect them to be.

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!

Fans of nonsense comedy would like or love both FLCL and Inferno Cop, since they feature weird plot twists and clever dialogue, while those two look way different on each other.

Chargeman Ken is basically Inferno Cop if it was made in the 70s and was unintentionally bad. Both are short episodes that consist of nonsense plots involving some non-specific evil entity and a protagonist whose internal logic is sometimes impossible to comprehend. Chargeman Ken is not a continuous story like Inferno Cop, so you can basically pull up any random episode, laugh at the limited animation, shoddy production, and confusing narrative, and 8 minutes later you're good.

both shows have an incredible complexity which really makes you have a good hard think about what just happened. both masterpieces 
report Recommended by TheEyeOfSa
They're both funny with over the top humor. They're extremely enjoyable but inferno cop is more insane. Inferno cop has a really whacky sense of humor and the scenarios of the episodes change constantly and are all brilliant. Prison school has a similar sense of humor but with more structure (which is a really great story and structure btw for how all the plots come together) so I recommend it.

Both have absurd, though Rapeman has more serious in tone. Both work for JUSTICE!!! Inferno Cop is totally non-hentai stuff (well except for drowning in a pregnant women's 'waters') 
report Recommended by MegaApple
Anime episodes for each are around 3-5 minutes long and the plot doesn't take itself too seriously, being under the influence of alcohol also enhanced the viewing of each anime 
report Recommended by GTDaley
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.

Short & random web animations about trying to be a hero. 
report Recommended by Gegenschein
Both series are littered with over-the-top 'manliness' in lue of Fist of the North Star and other older preposterone series. Both are parodies that are not afraid to be absolutely absurd. 
report Recommended by Amberleh
Similar story about an unconventional hero, similar humor and a little social commentary in both but mainly off the wall anti hero antics. 
report Recommended by ReasonDesu
Both share some of the same key staff including the same director. Similar in how "over-the-top" they are. Inferno Cop is a comedy, while Gurren Lagann is a mecha action show. 
report Recommended by Elu
Two series essentially about explosions and all of the awesome ways they can happen. 
report Recommended by BoyHime732
Same low budget over the top style. For some reason the legacy of Evangelion is delightfully camp. 
report Recommended by BoyHime732
So "juicy" with each of their own independent, horrific presentations that the audience can't help but chuckle, and be overwhelmingly astonished at it. 
report Recommended by Stellio
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!

Short episode lengths and completely random events, plus humor and great voice acting.  
report Recommended by ManlyOpinion
"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. 
report Recommended by StevenHu
Both shows have the same black comedy sense of humor, and the main character in both series is an anti-hero came from the depths of hell to rule this world with all his epicness! 
report Recommended by BDL
They are both short, extremely low-budget, and intentionally shoddily made, with random and nonsensical plots. Inferno Cop is more over-the-top, while Gakuen Handsome more directly parodies the otome/yaoi genre. If you enjoy so-bad-it's-good humor, you will like both of these series.

They both start off innocent enough, but once the plot gets rolling all hell breaks loose.
