What are the strangest anime ever made?

Riro - Contributor

The world of anime can be quite a strange and bizarre place to be in at times. Outside of all the epic action sequences and heartfelt stories lie a place that is not often known or explored by anime fans. If you dig deeper into the recesses of anime insanity, you'll find some pretty crazy stories that find refuge inside some of the weirdest anime series out there. Does that mean that these shows aren't any good? That really depends on the viewer but if you ask us, we'd say they're just as good as any other good anime out there. It's just that you'll need some time to adjust and get used to this kind of storytelling. So if you are tired of those teeny-bopper and ultra-funny anime series, why not try something different? Something new? You might find yourself liking what you see. Call? Okay then. Join us as we dive deeper into the world of some of the strangest anime ever made and see if the abyss stares back at us.

  1. 1FLCL


    FLCL might seem like a strange anime to you in the way that it tackles concepts about adolescence because it does them from the perspective of an adult. In fact, for a story about a young boy growing up, there are a lot of mature themes involved. It's actually really clever and is well worth watching if you haven't yet.

  1. 2Serial Experiments Lain


    If this is your first outing with Serial Experiments Lain, you'll find it terrifyingly strange and bizarre how this 20-year-old anime classic predicted the future. Specifically, how we have become consumed with our online lives and how it's affecting our personal one.

  2. 3Paranoia Agent


    If an anime about a young boy going around attacking people with a golden bat is not considered strange, we don't know what is. That's not to say it's not good. The way it starts out normal, then take a serious and surreal turn is classic Madhouse Studios style and it's awesome.

  1. 4JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken


    When JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's manga debuted back in the 80s, it was considered strange and weird. That same still applies today with its anime adaptation, but in a good way. It brings something unique and fresh to the table. You gotta give this one a shot. It's really good.

  2. 5Danganronpa: The Animation


    Danganronpa: The Animation is a strange and violent crime thriller anime. It's hyper-stylized and it's really cool how that show portrays blood and gore in a weirdly aesthetic way. If you feel like watching something unique and strange, give this one a try.

  3. 6Kill la Kill


    From start to finish, Kill la Kill is a fun and strange rollercoaster ride filled action, slapstick humor, and scantily clad heroines. It's distinctively Japanese and we love that about it. Watch it now. You'll probably love it too.

  4. 7Future Diary


    Future Diary is a strange and very twisted take on the idea of love. It starts out real innocent and adorable but things escalate very quickly. Get ready for a very bloody and violent ride with this one, folks.

  5. 8Cells at Work!


    Personifying inanimate objects is nothing new. If you're familiar with Osmosis Jones, Cell at Work! is sort of like that, only.. it's anime. It's one of the strangest anime to have come out recently but it's hilarious and surprisingly, very informative.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure came out around the same time as Dragon Ball did? In fact, it was basically the closest thing to a competitor that Dragon Ball had during the 80s? So what happened? The manga was known to riddled with copyright issues and it never had the anime adaptation that would have helped its popularity grow. Fast-forward to today though, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is currently one of the most popular and more unique anime shows that the world has ever seen. Take that, Dragon Ball!
