    Oh so rare and strange anime, now this is a topic that speaks to me. I have seen my fair share of crazy crap over the years. Now I could just go ahead and list off everything with an ominous feel to it, or just in general Masaki Yuasa's stuff but what exactly are you looking for. I would still prefer to recommend you an anime you'd like rather than one that is just strange @shedninja. MAL helps a lot with this.

    For example Kaiba is a very strange show. However I really couldn't get into it and gave it a 5/10. So while strange I really can't recommend this to people that want something good. I only know of one person that has even seen this show in the first place.

    You could just jump straight into instant regret anime, the worst of the worst. They are very strange and have become something of a cult hit for being so bad. Such as Mars of Destruction and Skelter Heaven. They are also quite easy to watch since they are a single episode.

    Hahaha even @Noobs is jumping on board with the bad anime, although you rated that a 7 so...... But if an adorable girl told me to watch Pupa I would. Mind you I have read some of it too out of curiosities sake a long time ago. This is actually a really good obscure recommendation.

    I don't think you got the point of the post if you think you'll like it. You're meant to watch these shows and question why they exist. No one genuinely likes these anime but they exist all the same. Mars of Destruction has some ideas in play but it was never going to work considering.... well you'll find out when you watch it

    Oh I forgot one of my personal favourite obscure anime. Kuuchuu Buranko. About the lives of patients being treated by a doctor that has three personas that all are just as dysfunctional as the other. The animation style is very unique and I can guarantee you that you've not seen anything like it. Will you like it? I'm honestly not sure. But if you're willing to try anything then I thought I'd mention it

    Oh @shedninja you like girls with guns, I do remember reading you liked that somewhere else already. I should have started from their.
    Have you seen the three girls with guns series from the same creator that I gave up on after only a single one? Noir, Madlax and El Cazador de la Bruja?
    I can't say that they are any good. And the only one I've seen, El Cazador, I didn't even remember the name of it. I only rated it a 6 and can't remember much about it at all. I know I watched it dub but thats it.
    https://myanimelist.net/anime/272/Noir?q=noir
    https://myanimelist.net/anime/252/Madlax?q=madlax
    https://myanimelist.net/anime/2030/El_Cazador_de_la_Bruja

    You could also try Canaan. Not exactly a girls with guns but there are plenty of bad arse women that use guns as well.
    https://myanimelist.net/anime/5356/Canaan?q=canaan

    It was a very weird and generally bad anime. What with the random transformations, eating people, child abuse. It was such a magical ride.

    Commented before I saw a MAL account, I won't make that mistake again now that you've got that there. That being said, I really can't think of any other chicks with guns series.
    Gurren Lagen has a bad arse chick with a gun, although it is most definitely not a show about that.
    Have you heard of Psycho Pass? That might be interesting for you. Although almost everyone agrees that it gets worse the more seasons you watch.

    In that case if thats what you feel like @shedninja, you really should give the Tatami Galaxy a watch. Good show that. The AMV did well because while I disliked the music, the story flowed well through what scenes they used so I didn't stop watching it. Although that wasn't an AMV for Tatami Galaxy, but for Night is Short, Walk on Girl which is set in the same universe and uses the same characters.

    And I can't recommend Kuuchu Buranko enough. It is sitting right up there in my post from December 18.
    Well there is also Mononoke, Ping Pong, Kemonozume, Dead Leaves, Flip Flappers and Mind Game. These are all ones that come to mind when given a little thought. I haven't seen all of these myself but the animation used are definitely something very different.

    Also now that you're here to stay, why are we not friends on MAL yet? It makes checking what people thought of a series a bit easier.

    Always thought Innocent Venus was an interesting gem. Wasn't amazing, but the effort was there. There are some shows that are really good but have some absolutely jarring moments. The sort of thing that take you out of the moment.

    This one was steady throughout. Doesn't overstay it's welcome (12 episodes), and always had a nice pacing to it that made you want to see the next episode.
