While reading through this thread, I was pleased to see more than one reference to Dai Mahou Touge (aka Magical Witch Punie-chan), which is high up on my list. Also saw a ref to Kyousogiga, Arakawa, Cromartie and Excel Saga, all great candidates. There are choices that belong that I don't recall seeing (for example, Jungle de Ikou), but I must pick _the_ strangest, and there is much competition for the title.

Ultimately, I'm going to have to say



Hare+Guu!

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is pretty crazy xD


Best strange animes ever? FLCL and Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi


I love FLCL and MSAB, it's one of the few anime that I prefer the English dub.

I loved Abenobashi but the dub with the southern accents kind of bothered me because I didn't think they sounded as good as they could.

The weirdest one for me was Revolutionary Girl Utena Movie, I didn't know much about it just had a friend tell me I should watch it and when it was over I was sitting on my couch going....uh WTF?!

To all who mentioned Excel Saga: To be fair, it wasn't like that series was trying to make any sense.

When I think strange anime, I think things like GANTZ and Elfen Lied; y'know, shows that are comprehensible and have internal logic, but are out there and f'd up in so many ways that they make me question the sanity of the people making them. I just finished watching Angel Beats, and I think that one is up there too. Interesting, but what would make someone think that stuff up?

For me, it has got to be FLCL. This anime is what we would call back in my day a 6-episode acid trip. Some of the most off-the-wall animation I have EVER seen, the anime industry's inside jokes as part of the storyline, and the whole animation style can be almost bizarre.

English translation, sheer perfection on the strangeness scale.

1. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
2. Baccano! (surprised nobody's mentioned this yet)
3. Mawaru Penguindrum
4. Humanity Has Declined
5. Flcl

Honorable Mentions: Katanagatari, Gintama, and almost anything by SHAFT.

Edit: Texhnolyze and Serial Experiments Lain are two of the weirdest I've seen. Definitely as weird, if not weirder than, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. I can't believe I forgot about those.
