Both are about unlucky girl-only squads in absurd comedic situations.

At first glance both of them seem to be anime for kids but after a few episodes you´ll notice that they are definitely seinen

Milky Holmes pokes fun of the classic type of mystery that shows up in Detective Conan series. The original Sherlock is also mentioned at times.

The comedy story follows a group of eccentric color-coded girls where each have their own quirks, it is lighthearted and playful with tropes. Both also has similar themes of being a student in some school, and how the gangs is somewhat the best and also the worst of the team of the academy.

Both of these shows start off with the pretense of having a story but quickly devolves into comedies where the main characters are incapable of accomplishing anything. Both also involve humor based on all the main characters being idiots. Milky Holmes is the funnier of the two.

Both animes have people with special powers. In Gakuen Alice those powers are called Alice. In Milky Holmes those are called Toys

Almost the same show. Four girls, unbelievably moe, and hilarious.

Let's just say that these animes are about detectives? Okay? Now tantei opera milky Holmes is about 4 girls while Kamisama no memochou has about like 10 girl / guy . Tantei opera is Moe so you can't compare this to Kamisama how ever i still recommend this.

4 girls-Best friends(K-on!, Azusa is excluded from this recommendation :P) 1. K-on! and Milky Holmes is mainly on the fun and laughter the 4 friends bring, but not the main thing that brings them together.(K-on!-Light Music Club, Milky Holmes-Academy and good friends as detectives) They display similar character traits, like Mio-Herc(Elly), Yui-Sherlock(Sheryl), Ritsu-Nero, Mugi-Cordelia. More on friendship than main theme.

If you're looking for some detective fiction, then these two series are for you. Although presented differently, these two series have some tastes of mystery in them. Both series has a cast of characters who are eager to become detectives. Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and some mystery here and there. Both series also follows an episodic theme.

You may think of it as a bit of a stretch, but I found a lot of likeable similar elements between the two. While PSG is obviously made for an adult crowd with lots of obvious adult humor and jokes, with watching Milky Holmes it's quite obvious that it's a gag anime very much aimed at an adult crowd, and not in the lolicon way. The two share a lot of crude/silly humor and star a cast of (basically) idiots doing idiotic things with other idiots. If you're looking for something that follows that same set of "stupid adult humor" and don't mine more crudeness, PSG  read more

Both are dedective animes and they both have cute drawings

Even in a not-so-perfect world, these two series seem to be more well-connected than any other show on this list. Wild, zany, cute, and overflowing with energy, that's what defines these two shows. These shows are a pretty good definition of anime comedy, and if you've seen any one of them and love laughing to the point where you end up having to pause the video just to catch your breath, then stop reading and click the play button already. It'll also help a bit if you didn't take them so seriously.

Both shows heavily relies on obscured comedy with cute girls as main characters. They both are really unique and share a lot of similarities in how they handle the comedy. There's a big chance that you'll like Komugi-chan if you like Milky Holmes or vice versa. 
report Recommended by Goblerino
Both are on the lighthearted side and about detectives and thieves. Even though Kaitou Joker is about the thieves and Milky Holmes is about the detectives, both are animes you can enjoy without a serious mood. 
report Recommended by quokkalydia
Both shows have really daft comedy that goes over the top, and involves young girls being stupid, undignified, and getting beat up by each other (or an animal). 
report Recommended by ramenshoujo
Milky Holmes actually does have a plot, no matter how wimpy and lame. Both contain a sort of moe theme as it is the relationship of a group of girls who make bad puns, and get locked into stupid situations that just don't make sense. While the anime themselves are fairly different, the comedy is very similar.

Both show feature cute protagonists with pink hair and autism. 
report Recommended by puriprincess
Both anime take place in a school of sorts, and focuses on the interaction between an all female cast in an always comedic tone. 
report Recommended by Touhouman
Both anime features supposedly the female decedents of Sherlock Holmes and Arsene Lupin.

CLAMP Gakuen Tanteidan + Zettai Karen Children = Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Take the characters in Zettai Karen Children and in the concept of a Detective School like CLAMP, you get TOMH

Cute girls, panty humour, things that are out of a crack fic... a good, well written crack fic that is. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
You've got four girls with simular personalities as Amu's Chara. Though later on it becomes different. The clover symbal is also evident in teh begining and it has a bright coloring style to it.

CLAMP Gakuen Tanteidan + Zettai Karen Children = Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Tantei Opera Milky Holmes is a lot less dry then CLAMP, but it has the abilities of ZKC... not to mention some of the humour in there. An enteresting mix.

Very similar types of humor. Excel is a bit more energetic and adult.. but not by much in either category. 
report Recommended by Sariffice
In both of these Anime, you don't know what the main characters are going to do next. In Level E, you have a highly intelligent alien who becomes bored with life and causes trouble, and in Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, you have four girls who lack intelligence who try hard to help people, thus causing trouble.

Softenni and Milky Holmes are more alike than what it seems. Yes, the first is about a club of soft tennis when the latter is about a bunch of detective girls, but the feel is definitely the same: they both share a cast of cute and stupid girls, with slapstick humor and crazyness everywhere.

If you've ever wanted to know what incredibly enjoyable commercials are like, look no further. 
report Recommended by NavyCherub
Very similar humour, cute and dumb girls doing crazy and stupid things. Both also happen to gender-bend famous (historical) characters but it's mostly the similar humour and the cuteness factor. 
report Recommended by kuroshiroi
Both start out innocently enough, and then go into WTF territory. Both are strange and random and not meant for kids, despite appearances. Shinobu actually reminds me of Sherlock (even the same color hair!). 
report Recommended by Nek0
Both shows carry that permanent comical and upbeat tone of absurd situations and fanciful, imaginative circumstances that let jokes flowing out of each episode. They almost never take themselves seriously while carrying a blatant, frontal, and absolutely NOT subtle sense of humor. If heavy comedy priding itself in being silly is what you're looking for, you probably should be watching it. 
report Recommended by Suimega
Obviously, the plotline and genre of these two shows very starkly contrast with each other, with Tantei Opera Milky Holmes being a comedic and mild action title, and Tamayura ~Hitotose~ being purely a slice-of-life with very light comedic undertones. However, the primary characters of both titles very much remind me of each other. In Milky Holmes, Sherlock is the air-headed leader, Cordelia is the boisterous one, Hercule is the quiet one, and Nero is the tsukkomi; in Tamayura, Fu, Norie, Maon, and Kaoru, respectively, fill these roles. The Milky Holmes characters are more lively and zany than the mostly mild Tamayura characters, but, regardless, their  read more

Another comedy about a group of incompetent girls with superpowers supervised by a big breasted adult, and an obvious reference for Hacka Dolls --there are winks to Milky Holmes right in the opening animation. Milky Holmes (seasons 1 and 2 only) is like the crazy uncle to the more subdued Hacka Dolls.
