Nobody does strange quite like the Japanese do.
Unbound by practical limitations, animation provides creators an amazing avenue where imaginations can run wild - sometimes a little too wild. Here are N weirdest anime series of all time.

1. FLCL (Fooly Cooly)

FLCL (Fooly Cooly)

To me it's the name that gets me. Fooly Cooly. What does that even mean? The entire series focuses on Naota, a 12-year-old working class boy. On a perfectly normal day, a girl, Haruka, runs him over with her vespa, gives him CPR then proceeds to bash him over the head with her left-handed bass guitar. Haruka turns out to be a Galactic Space Police Brotherhood member and is in search of the Pirate King.

2. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo

Fighting nose hairs. Monkeys with ringing telephones on their heads. A talking man made out of jelly. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo speaks to us on a spiritual level.

3. Masuda Kousuke Gekijou Gag Manga Biyori

Masuda Kousuke Gekijou Gag Manga Biyori

Gag Manga Biyori is such a bloody weird comedy that for years it presented too large of a challenge for fansubbers. The whole thing is full of so many Japanese cultural references.

4. Sekko Boys

Sekko Boys

As if themed idol groups couldn't get any stranger, a team of actual Greco-Roman busts, sings, poses, and are carted through weird drama of the idol world in Sekko Boys.
