Cuticle Detective Inaba

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Cuticle Detective Inaba is an anime series based on a manga written and illustrated by Mochi.

The main character of the series is Hiroshi Inaba. He's a genetically altered being that is part human and part wolf; he is a detective that also has a hair fetish. If Inaba gets a hair in his mouth, he can track down the person the hair belongs to; he can also get powers from the hair, and the color of the hair determines what the power is. Inaba had been partners with a police inspector named Kuniharu Ogino back when he had been on the police force. Inaba quit the force after his younger brother disappeared.

Inaba has two assistants who work for him: Yuta Sasaki and Kei Nozaki. Yuta is a cross-dressing boy who is Inaba’s secretary; he also hates Ogino to the point where he is willing to try to harm him. Kei is 16 years old, and is basically the "straight man" of the series. While Ogino may not be partnered with Inaba anymore, he will retain Inaba's services as a client. Ogino is also a doting father, and will do anything if he thinks his little girl is in danger.

The main antagonist of the series is Don Valentino. He's a goat that's the head of a mafia, and he makes counterfeit bills. During the first episode, Don Valentino becomes enemies with Inaba.

Cuticle Detective Inaba is definitely meant as a comedy. Several times during the first episode, the animation flips from a regular style to a chibi look. There were several instances in the episode where blood was shown, usually as part of a comedic scene. And if the first episode is any indication, it appears that each episode has two stories in it.

By the time I finished the first episode, I found the series to be rather strange. It's definitely the kind of anime that's going to appeal to an audience that has a greater appreciation for exaggeration and unusual aspects in the anime that they watch.

Personally, I would recommend Cuticle Detective Inaba to anime viewers who are 14 or 15 years of age and older.
