Completed Series: Cuticle Tantei Inaba

 Series: Cuticle Tantei Inaba (キューティクル探偵因幡)
Episodes: 12
Year: 2013
Animation Production: ZEXCS

Official Summary: 
In a world where half-human, half-animal chimeras live and work alongside normal people, there are sure to be a few bad apples in the bunch. Unfortunately, half-human criminals means non-human clues that often leave the police stumped. That's where lone wolf detectives like Hiroshi Inaba come in. He's literally part wolf and has the amazing ability to extract critical information just by examining or tasting a sample of someone's hair! Of course, that ability has also resulted in Inaba having a little bit of a hair fetish, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for his two assistants. (Well, at least the cross-dressing one isn't complaining much.) And it's nothing compared to the strange tastes of Inaba's nemesis, the omnivorous (and half goat) crime boss Don Valentino, who has an appetite for green legal tender instead of tender young greens! Inaba's sworn to cut Valentino out of the criminal flock before the Don can wolf down more ill-gotten dough, but he's going to have to chew his way through a lot of evidence to get his goat. Can sheer dogged detective work put the baaaaad guys behind bars? ( -MAL )

Catie's Thoughts: I. Love.
 This. Show. The humor is so absurd. There's supposedly some measure of plot underneath it all, but it mainly serves as a springboard for the insane shenanigans. I think my main complaint is that there aren't nearly that many female characters, but everyone, male and female, is so awesome when they're around that I often forget that. 

Of course my favorite is the goat, because. Fucking MAFIA
 BOSS TINY LITTLE GOAT-THING. He is ADORABLE. I want a Don Valentino plushie like you wouldn't believe. (It only makes it 1000% more awesome that he is voiced by Ohkawa Toru.)

Would I buy it? GIVE IT TO ME NOW. And I would rewatch it and absolutely die laughing. I had to pause episodes because I was laughing so hard I was missing sight gags.
