There is a lot of strange anime out there (like FLCL), but what in your opinion are the strangest ones?

My nomination is Divergence Eve (and it's sequel, Misaki Chronicles). The basic plot is that evil aliens are coming through a rip in space and our intrepid girls are trying to find out who, and what they are, and then stop them from invading. People are dying, including Misaki's father. Every step of the plot is clear and understandable, but once you get to the end you realize that the aliens never come out of the rip in space and you really don't know what happened, or why. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divergence_Eve


This anime evidently drew a lot of criticism due to the fan service. All the women have breasts that are modeled after a Gurren Lagen drill, and that they defy the law of gravity.

Usually I don't watch the strangest ones. I have watched Akiba's Trip though... Pretty sure an anime where you have to rip clothes off of an enemy in order to get rid of it would count as strange, but what I'm getting at here is the rest of the plot, not the battles. Keijo is a strange one all right.

Gyo.
Swarms of zombie fish with metal legs devouring everything, creating clouds of noxious gas. Tubes shoved into every orifice. Military deployment attempts to repel the invasion. About as bizarre as it gets.

Sekkou Boys is pretty freakin' weird. A pop/idol group made up of Roman sculptures/busts. I got halfway through episode 1 and thought it was waaay to weird. I didn't get it.

Yuri Kuma Arashi is also bonkers ass weird. I watched 3 episodes and I had no clue WTF I just saw.

I haven't seen it, but I hear Astarotte no Omocha! (English title: Astarotte's Toy) is extremely weird. It's about a 10 year old succubus princess in another world named Astarotte. As a succubus, she needs semen in order to live but she hates men. Then a 23 year old man named Naoya is brought to this world to be the first male of her "harem" so that he can give her semen. The guy brings his 10 year old daughter (yes, she's 13 years younger than him) with him. I have no idea how big of a spoiler this next part is, but I'll tag it just in case. This is where it get's even more bizarre.


Now you guys do yourselves a favor and forget you ever read that.

Weirdest anime I've seen that I can remember is Forest Fairy Five. There's no plot to talk about... I only saw 2 episodes, though. The weirdest one I've seen from start to finish might be Samurai Flamenco. A male model is obsessed with super heroes and decides to become one. He runs around in a costume trying to catch ordinary criminals. Then everything changed thanks to a gorilla. Even if I wanted to spoil what happens, I honestly have no way to describe it. Things just keep escalating as the show goes on. It's a good show.

This is my jam, I tend to find the weird ones or they find me.

Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Outer Space: https://youtu.be/LyAzqlu3udY is utterly insane. Apparently Hello Kitty in the far future chain smokes and is the reincarnation of an ancient deity who has to deal with the Catty Company, zombies, a psychotic bisexual dog who keeps his mouse sex toy in a cage, and gets messages from her human mom who has a giant snake wrapped around her.

I also really recommend Mind Game https://youtu.be/XU4EfF85u60, which is absolutely nuts. Wonderfully, incredibly nuts. "Am I dead?" YAYESSSSS!
