I'm sure you've come across some anime titles that just don't make sense. Name some that you just can't figure out. Maybe if there's a title that actually makes sense, but you can't figure it out, someone else can give you an answer. Just be wary of spoilers if the meaning of a title is explained later in a series.

Here's a few examples:
Bleach - Please don't say it's because Ichigo dyed his hair orange.
Full Metal Panic! - I guess the Arm Slaves are metal...
Tactics - Because it takes a lot of strategy to exorcise spirits?

it's a manga title:
the world only God knows(i think it's not very sensible in relation to the story )

edit:
a user pointed something out, it makes some sense to me now

Well, the name does match to the manga.. He's known as the god of video gaming and his video gaming addiction becomes parallel to the real world. So the world that only he knows is that real life is exactly how dating sims play out..

I agree and fooly cooly as well as the beginning of eva


For Fooly Cooly.. It's actually a term people use for twisting some sort of knob.. This anime referred to it as tweaking a woman's nipples. Perverted yes.. (Relevant to the anime? Only the creators know..)

Toradora is obvious once you understand it..
Ryu/Ryuuji/dora/dragon
the tree of translation
Tiger/Taiga/Tora
This sort of gives the ending away though.. They put ToraDora instead of ToraRyu because ToraDora rhymes.

For Azumanga Daioh - The manga author "Kiyohiko Azuma" decided to name the manga after himself. "Azumanga."
Daioh roots from the popular magazine "Dengeki Daioh."

Strawberry Panic - Doesn't make sense for a title..
