As the topic implies.. what seires was it?

For me, it has to be one or all of these series:


Excel Saga

Tenshi no Narumon

Sourcer Hunters

..and probably a buncha other short anime titles ^^;

Furi Kuri [ w00t!! ] and I,Me, My , Strawberry eggs!


Kenshin Ken

aah. .I rather liked I me my Strawberry Eggs ^_^. I thoguth it was pretty cute ^^. . then again.. hearing the name " Bra man" sounds pretty weird too ehhe ^^.

05-18-2002, 10:06 PM
For me, Kodocha held that place for quite some time; but was beaten out by Fairy Princess Rane/Elf Princess Ren, which was subsequently given a run for its money by Excel Saga and FLCL. Parts of Jubei-chan are well up there on the weirdness meter, same with NieA_7. But generally I think Rane holds the place of honor, and that's with just two episodes. Sorcerer Hunters is weird, but it hasn't got that hopped-up "what kinda crazy crack were they on" feeling, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm a lover of the exceptionally odd in anime, though. ^^ It'd be easier to answer this question about manga (Katteni Kaizou, with Sakuratetsu Taiwahen as a runner-up, if you discount the series I mentioned under anime).

I like , I , me , My , strawberry eggs- because its weird..XD w00t!

I like all anime, [ so far - that ive seen [ , except the sort [ excluding poor CCS ] shown on FOX, and such..:P WB..etcc

05-19-2002, 12:35 AM
Miyuki-chan in Wonderland was a bit strange... Even though I liked the outfits XD

Ranma Saotome
05-19-2002, 01:02 AM
'My My Mai'... It teeters on anime and hentai... Too damn funny. :D

Oddest? Hmm...

Oddest in a good way would be Dragon Half. It's just so wonderfully weird! ^o^

Oddest in a bad way would be Genocyber because it's scary and weird and is comprised mostly of exploding people and very little plot. x_X;;;;;;;;;

05-19-2002, 05:02 AM
Azumanga Daioh...my word is that show strange!!!
I don't think i have even worked out what's supposed to be going on!

My head hurts....:(

Kenshin Ken
05-19-2002, 11:44 AM
poor poor Neitsche ^^;; * hands you some asprin* ^^;;

Speaking of Miyuki chan ^^: I rented out the DVD one day...^^;; man it was...strange ^^; what's mroe ironic is the actual price of the DVD. ^^;

In a whole, I thought all of sourcer hunters was strange ^^: there is'nt a consistant storyline..the longest they did keep a story going is 2 episodes long... and I really can't tell where or what are ythy gonna do next ^^;; <<**sat through all 3 DVD's of sourcer hunters...only to find out that it does not END!!** O_o;;;..........

Genocyber was eweird too..^^;; I dunno what possesed my friends to make me rent it..but I didn't l;ike it at all ^^; too much gore and junk....if ya add the fuming yellow batle aura.. you practically have a Dragon Ball Z knock off lol ^^;;

Has anyone seen Ebichu? ^^:; if you have.. you'd agree.. it's one of the weirdest..sickest series so far..^^;;

05-19-2002, 05:24 PM
Revolutioanry Girl Utena the movie. Even thought I see the entire series. The movie still doesn't make sense to me. The one scene that got me was when Utena tranform into a car. Maybe there is something I miss. I dunno. Maybe I need to watch it couple more time. ^^; I love it though.

05-19-2002, 07:30 PM
Yeah, I hear it was pretty bizarre?

Coley Lou
05-20-2002, 12:00 AM
Well, I'd say Ebichu and Ping Pong Club. I wish I could find more of Ebichu though, it was so funny ^^;;;;; I wanted to see it all!

05-20-2002, 12:11 AM
I don't know, dragon into jeep is weird, but I think Utena into car takes the cake. oO;;; Now I'm regretting not seeing it when it premiered at that Sci-Fi channel screening I was at, lol. Haven't seen the series.

We watched all the initial eps of DiGi Charat today, it's . . . WEIRD. XD The guys were all kinda brain damaged afterward and kept going "what the HECK!" . . . I really loved it!

Philia Philis
05-20-2002, 02:42 AM
Wai wai! ^^ It's Coooollleeeeyyyy! *gives her a Peppermint Pattie*

Hehe.. Sorry, had to say that. ^^

Kenshin Ken
05-20-2002, 10:29 AM
ah!! I jsut remembered another series. This was at AX 2 years ago during a Studio Perriot screening. SUper Milk chan ( yes that IS the name) I saw a episode of it... dubbed....and it just sounded so....well..it was weird... but after the show was over, a group in the back yelled out " WHAT THE F**K!?" and laughed ^^;;

As for Ebichu...^^;; one of my friends has around..13 episodes i think of it ^^;; I only seen up to episode 6... @_@; geez..what a guy does when he takes too kindly to hamsters....

05-20-2002, 06:54 PM
Chibi Devil Man.... yes.. CHIBI. i saw it at a con, its the kind of thing you would never think exists...yet there it be in all its freaky weird odd glory.
it was damn funny. ^^

Lovelyangel_81...yes, there are definitly some Utena car issues... wait, that movie had all kinds of issues. doesnt the movie rock so much more once youve seen the series! its my favorite... ^^

05-20-2002, 08:51 PM
Ebichu is the weirdest anime I have ever seen Oo

05-21-2002, 12:59 PM
I haven't seen many wierd anime. I think the wierdest I've seen was Dragon Half (even if I've only seen one episode).

As for manga (yes, I'm adding this), Fish in the Trap O_o

Kenshin Ken
05-21-2002, 01:38 PM
I haven't seen Fish in the Trap yet..^^;; but I'll add thaqt to my " must see to belive" list ^^;;

05-21-2002, 03:21 PM
I think what's so wierd about Fish in the Trap is well...it's yaoi. But, in a strange way. If you ever happen to find links of it on Anipike, you'll see how wierd it is.

Coley Lou
05-21-2002, 09:21 PM
Hey Philia! Ebichu was so funny! I wish they'd bring it over ^^;;;

If anyone wants to offer up a way for Nicole to get it, she'd love you forever!


05-22-2002, 03:14 PM
Oddest would HAVE to be Utena. I thought all the symbolism in there was unique and WEIRD.

Weirdest and silliest would either be Master of Mosquiton or Elf o Karu Monotachi

05-22-2002, 05:20 PM
The oddest? I've not seen lots of anime but... I'd say Ghost in the Shell. The entire atmosphere is odd...


05-22-2002, 05:46 PM
Ooo forgot about Ghost in the Shell... Maybe I'm just not used to it yet ^^;;

05-22-2002, 09:59 PM
Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto. . .I've only seen two eps of it, but I had no idea what was going on. Maybe the catgirl thing doesn't rub me the right way. It was also the most sickeningly saccharine piece of animation I've seen. I like cuteness in moderation, but this made Chibiusa look as un-pink as you can get.

Mei Lan Chang
05-27-2002, 12:40 PM
I'm gonna have to say Soul Taker: THe Monsters Within. I couldn't even finish it because not only was it weird, it was dumb as well. Within the frist three minutes there was already a parental death and a panty shot. Then the people fought with medical supplies. Yes. Giant needles and medical scalpels. I should have never picked it up off the rack.

05-27-2002, 02:12 PM
Let's see...

No one has mentioned the Eva movie yet, those were all very very weird. Mahou Yuugi (Magical Play, with the fish girl), Di Gi Charat the anime, Jibaku-kun, Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai(Magical Shopping District by the guy that did Furi Kuri) are all pretty odd. Kodocha, Kotobuki Ran, and Momiru Sisters all fall into the 'anime on crack catagory' and I love 'em all! Wahaha ^_~

05-31-2002, 11:48 PM
Hoo boy..I have to say either the Utena movie, Kodocha (though strangely I understand it and I LOVE it ^^), or Boogiepop Phantom (which I don't understand and I want to know who does. >D)

06-02-2002, 01:00 PM
I would have to say Digi Charat on this one.

Yggdrasil Pie

Yea, I agree with you, Digi Charat is really odd...

06-02-2002, 05:45 PM
For me, the oddest would have to be serial experiments lain (watched at 2 A.M. on Christmas O.o; Any anime would seem strange at that time) Either that or Violinist of Hameln. (The whole thing with Hamel writing on Raiel's hat was just plain wrong...)

06-04-2002, 04:50 PM
I forgot about this one! Serial Experiments Lain is another one of the wierdest anime I've seen. Especially at night, alone in my room, no lights on, with no one awake....O_o;;

06-05-2002, 06:36 PM
hmmm... flcl I had no idea what was going on O_o

excel saga was pretty strange but very very funny^^


06-05-2002, 06:50 PM
hmm... i've probably seen a lot less anime than most of the people on these boards, but i'd have to say either Digi Charat or Ping Pong Club...

06-05-2002, 09:09 PM
Awright, I just finished watching Metropolis and I think it's got a fair chance in here >>;; It was so friggin' weird... And it came from the creator of Astro Boy!! X-x

06-06-2002, 12:50 AM
I didn't think Metropolis was weird, really . . . and the first time I saw it was raw. ^^; All a matter of perspective, I guess. But I'd like to amend my list and add Tenshi ni Narumon. oO;;; Hah, I wish I had a scan of my cel from that I bought randomly (only saw some of the series today), it's pretty much my reaction to the series so far. Though I like weird anime so much, I think my opinions aren't very valid, lol.

06-24-2002, 08:18 PM
I like Odd anime so I have some things to add to this. The oddest three things that I have seen would have to be...DiGi Charat(I love it)...Akihabara Dennou Gumi(love it too)...and Dragon Half(Love this one too). Overall, I think I like funny anime more then anything else; My favorite series is Love Hina if that says anything. Suu Rocks!!!

06-24-2002, 10:59 PM
Wahahah the Dragon Half ED just came up on my playlist, so I'll take this opportunity to say that the ending to that show ROCKS. And so does that chick who did it at karaoke at ACen this year (dressed as Sana-chan, no less). Man I gotta stalk her next year and get her to do it again . . .

06-26-2002, 11:46 PM
I would say Puni Puni Poemi, Excel Saga, Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, and Ebichu. They scared me when I first watched them. Excel Saga is not too bad. I got used to the randomness and was able to laugh around. :eek: Puni Puni Poemi was like Excel saga...but Excel Saga on Crack. Miyuki-chan in Wonderland...was like well it was an ecchi. Nothing happened, but each character in the movie wanted it to happen...ya know? Scary to modest little asian girls like me.

Kenshin Ken
06-27-2002, 07:55 PM
I thought Miyuki Chan was an attempt on a Yuri flick... ^^;; but for soem odd reason, it relaly has no ending whasoever. I need something a bit more realstic..but sicne the topic here is on weird anime.. I'll have to say Excel Saga, Ebichu and One-piece ^^;
Excel Saga jsut feels liek some kinda..mornic comedy...it makes no sense..yet somehwere it those lines it does ^^;. Ebichu was jsut disturbing...I've seen seven episodes of the stuff...and from what I seen.. Ebichu gets killed more often than Kenny ^^; ( not me.. the south park one ^^; ) One pice I foudn to be strange....I've only seen a episode of it or so...but the character designs and the concenpts are weird.. a rubber man... a man that fights with 3 swords... one of em being in his mouth ^^;; and the Marines look like they came outta the YMCA ^^;;

06-28-2002, 07:45 AM
brother dear brother, fushigi yugi ( hated it), zoids (can't belive I gave it a chance) marmalade boy, I'm gonna be an angel, Jubei-chan....

Kenshin Ken
06-30-2002, 11:56 AM
well hey ^^; these are jsut the chances we take...^^;; not all anime is good anime ^^;;

07-20-2002, 12:01 PM
Hm... Probably one of the worst I've seen was Those Who Hunt Elves. That was lame... Or maybe Hamtaro. Sure, they're cute, but where's the interesting storyline?? The worst manga I've read is Magical Poke'mon Journey, but I guess I was setting myself up for that by reading a manga with a name like that...

I can't remember much about the weirdest one I saw. My mind kinda blocks it out... But it had this weird professer guy with blue hair and glasses and he was making this weird sub human type thing that winds up tearing him apart, and it ends with the monster out lose on the streets. It was creepy. Clips of scenes with darkness between. Not much sound, except for pieces here and there.

07-21-2002, 12:37 AM
I'd have to say FLCL is the oddest I've seen so far.

07-24-2002, 09:24 AM
I'd have to say Oh Super Milk-chan is weird. it's like anime ren & stimpy. ^^:

Neon Genocide
07-24-2002, 09:32 AM
Oddest anime, Hmmm…“I Want To Be Your Angel” would be it, as I suffered through the first 2 episodes I had to get up and leave. Not only is the lead female voice horrifying but the whole idea of the anime was. I still have nightmares about it.

07-24-2002, 09:50 AM
FLCL was pretty strange, I didn't understand a bit of it. ^^; Strawberry Eggs is another definite yes, and Excel Saga.. I remember seeing Astro Boy at Otakon last year and just cracking up because it was so very strange. ^_^

08-06-2002, 11:18 PM
DiGi Charat. Nobody warned me before I watched the first episode. After about three minutes of talking fingers I was afraid. Very afraid.


08-07-2002, 01:17 AM
Ebichu for sure. It's weirder than Utena turning into a car, in my opinion. I just watched that movie for the second time last night, incidentally. It made much more sense the second time around.

08-07-2002, 11:30 AM
I agree with everyone who said "Tenshi ni Narumon", "Dragon Half" and "Those Who Hunt Elves". I love "Elves", it's so insane. My all-time weirdest is "Lain". I too watched it at 2 am. During one scene where a creepy little alien pops through the door the power blinked and I was in complete darkness. Too scary!!!

08-07-2002, 03:01 PM
uh.. I'd have to say excel saga, princess nine, and strawberry eggs. excel and strawberry are tight but princess nine kinda sucked...

08-07-2002, 03:54 PM
I'm too lazy to read through all these replies... but I'm gonna say

Perfect Blue.... it's a very... confusing anime, but it's my favorite!

Boogiepop Phantom is also a very odd and fun anime to analyze and disect!

08-07-2002, 10:27 PM
hmm id have to say FLCL, exel saga, Lain and Hellsing are by far the strangest animes...but i looove all of them ^__^ i have a thing for strange things... hehe...nothing quite as strange as a vampire turning into a big pool of black goo with thousands of red blinking eyes.... @_@

08-08-2002, 12:22 AM
I think sexy commando is easily the strangest, maybe thats what makes it so funny. I mean cmon, do you know of any other anime that in the middle of a battle it goes to little kids running in the grass or ukeleli (however its spelled) lessons?

Space Invader
08-09-2002, 09:37 PM
DiGi Charat takes the cake for me. It's completely random and hyper, not to mention so damn cute! *squeee* Something different and completely bizarre happens in each episode - like the "godzilla" attack, Gema swelling up and them going to take a pee to return to normal size, evil tv, and Dejiko being possesed by a clam spirit. Aiiee.

08-13-2002, 12:46 PM
Jungle wa itsumo Hale nochi Guu

"The Jungle Was Nice, Then Came Guu"

08-15-2002, 02:03 AM
Masaru San (someone mentioned the main feature: Sexy Commando)
Angel's Egg (a weird Oshii movie w/ characters by Amano)

I thought Urusei Yatsura movie 2 was quite weird (another weird Oshii movie) especially since the usual atmosphere of UY is totally thrown away.

08-15-2002, 10:33 PM
I'm suprised it took so long before someone said Serial Experiments Lain. That was positively confuddling. At first I thought it was because I accidently missed episodes 5-8, but then when I saw them I was even more confused.

And Metropolis was sort of weird too, but I chalked that up to not understanding Japanese as much as I should have.

08-16-2002, 09:31 AM
Crayon Shin-Chan is really weird, but it's funny like nothing else... some of the humor is kinda stupid but there are some things that will make you laugh till you cry

01-28-2003, 03:24 PM
One Piece is sooooooooo weird...that's why i love it!

02-21-2003, 12:37 AM
I need a life...*keeps digging up old threads**sweatdrop*

Oddest anime I've seen thus far:
Jungle wa Itsumo Hale nochi Guu
Dragon Half
Excel Saga
Furi Kuri

*will resist the urge to ressurect old threads*

02-21-2003, 02:03 AM
Digi Charat 0_o

02-22-2003, 05:07 AM
Night on the Galactic Railroad, or that Angel's Egg thing.

02-22-2003, 05:26 AM
Akira was the weirdest for me ^^;

02-22-2003, 09:43 AM
Excel Saga is weird, but in a good way, I think.

I watched 3 minutes of Di Gi Charat's first episode (since it was a bad download... ><) and after that, all I can say is...


Evangelion is also weird, but that's again in a puzzling, brain-burning way. Dunno if it's bad or good.

02-22-2003, 01:37 PM
Kyoro-Chan is pretty um...er out there...

Hare Nochi Goo, Excel saga, Haunted Junction are too.

02-23-2003, 12:21 AM

Holy crap, those were my two votes....
Ping Pong Club is just WEIRD. And a little too gratuitous in some areas if ya know what I mean.. >.>
at least Ebichu had well, Ebichu!! ^_^ She's so cute!!

02-23-2003, 12:30 AM
Furi Kuri, strange but good!

Shadow Lady
02-23-2003, 11:25 PM
Digi Charat
Dragon Half
Trouble Chocolate
Puni Puni Poemi o_0

I love weird anime but Puni Puni Poemi was a little toooooo out there for me.

02-24-2003, 07:00 AM
Boogiepop Phantom, no question about it for me.

Watched it three times through and although I LOVE the series, I still can't quite tell what's going on O_o;;;

Like just when you think you have a handle on it.....it decides to melt your brain or something and you have to start from scratch.

Giant Alucard
02-24-2003, 07:27 AM
Puni Puni Poemi was the weirdest show in the wotld to me, and i think it is the true anime crack. If you ever see it oyu must always keep an eye on the backgroungs, cause you catch some weird stuff there.

02-24-2003, 11:59 AM
I think it's Akira for meh...

02-24-2003, 08:14 PM
Excel Saga and Spirited Away. I love em both but you're in denial if you dont think they're odd

Giant Alucard
02-25-2003, 07:16 AM
i only got to see the first 20 min. of spirted away cause i had to go to work, and i was watching it at a club meeting. Sucks for me. I may have to rent it to see if it was as strange as my friends said it was.

02-27-2003, 09:39 PM
:drink: Definitely a strange anime for being sold directly to the market. I mean, frankly, its so pornographic I am surprised its not Hentai...so yea it rocked, but it was strange.

02-27-2003, 09:49 PM
Weirdest ones i have seen are tokyo mew mew and this other one but not usr eon the name something along the line of snow fairy or somethign.About a girl who comes across a fariy that makes snow.Weird but true.Both of these shows will cause an overdoes of sugar in ones system so bring the insulin along lol.

02-27-2003, 11:02 PM
Weirdest one- sadly it would have to be Clamp's "Muyuki-chan in Wonderland"- I got it from a friend- It didn't make any sense, but it was was full of women wanting to do- well- odd things- but man was that thing weird! Yet good! And also FLCL! That is SOOOOOO weird- ok i'm done-

02-27-2003, 11:09 PM
FLCL, Photon, one piece, the utena movie was kinda weird too. if we're talking bout making no sense di gi charat takes the cake though. gotta love studio brocolli ^^;; sumthin in their water or whatnot @_@

02-28-2003, 09:56 PM
To this day Akira still confuses me.

The anime that made me want to do a sweatdrop has to be Di Gi Charet and Azumanga Daioh.

03-01-2003, 03:27 PM
FLCL all the way. It's such a trip. No wonder it's my favorite ^_^

03-19-2003, 01:54 PM
I My Me STrawberry Eggs s'pretty funny though, and Excel Saga of course >.<

Shadow Lady
03-19-2003, 02:16 PM
I've just recently discovered this show called Jungle wa istumo Hale nochi Guu.
Reaaaaaally funny and very strange ^_^

03-19-2003, 03:04 PM
I have to say knights of Ramune.....no point what so ever....

03-19-2003, 05:11 PM
Puni Puni Poemi. 'nuff said.

03-19-2003, 06:36 PM
Digi Charat def has that high on crack feeling so does Exel Saga which every thing is total well... random
