I know anime has a reputation for being strange... but I am searching for THE STRANGEST anime... the kind where after you finished watching you sat there in the dark silence and questioned how a production company could have possibility approved of that. You also debate If you still want to admit to others that you like anime or even if you want to still be a fan of anime. Im searching for the kind of wdird anime that makes you question your life, your sanity and humanity, all while dancing at the edge of an existential crisis. Eventually forcing yourself that you just have to accept that what you just witnessed is a thing that actual people put time and effort to make happen.

For me that was Pupa... I still wake in the middle of the night with a cold sweat.

Glasslip. Utawarerumono (older one) towards the end was pretty funky as well.

I would have to say No Game No Life. The hints at juvenile incest as well as making characters do strange things was a bit odd

Recently My sister is unusual.

They really like the sister fetish genre in Japan, only difference between the rest is that this one has ghost r*pe and super raunchy scenes that make it borderline hentai. This show is just one giant face palm.

Monster Musume is just awful. They focus so hard on trying to make it as sexual as they can without it technically being considered porn. Its disturbing obvious how its just clearly to make as much money as they can off 13 year olds... I mean I cant really be that upset because the whole point of making animes is to try and make money but they could have at least tried to make a semi good story instead of 'lets see how we can get them into THIS situation'

Pupa was definitely strange but Ithink the strangest anime I've watched is Paranoia Agent. Everything about it is just plain weird.

Papuwa Island and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. Not to say they weren't fun and I didn't enjoy them. They were just strange in general.

Three Answers, depending on exactly what you mean:

The Meloncholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, The Endless Eight (Seriously, what the hell were they thinking? Never have I seen a show troll it's audience before... eight freakin' times!... And I love this show except for this...)

Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku Wo (Pure garbage, from start to finish)

Serial Experiments Lain (A good show, but a mind-screw--it kind of bores into your brain, nests for awhile, and then lays eggs.)

Although I'll give an honorable mention to Bobobo... Fighting crime with nose hair? Who the hell thinks up this stuff?
