    Weird/Unpredictable Anime & Manga

    Hi everybody!
    How many weird/unpredictable anime/manga do you know? Let's make a list!
    I know Excel Saga, FLCL and Arakawa under the Bridge. They're quite random. =) Probably we could include Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi too. ^^
    any other titles?

    Also, do you like this type of anime/manga? or do you think it's too weird?

    Yeah, I had no idea what FLCL was even about, Sasamisan as well.

    Manga wise Air Gear too especially as the last arc was reached. Biorg Trinity with it's biobugs makes for some incredibly weird panels and moments like becoming a roach or a bike, etc.

    Hi MagicNeko, I changed the title of the thread to include manga as well. I hope you don't mind.

    I don't know about unpredictable, but Assassination Classroom is certainly the weirdest manga I'm reading right now. Its premise alone is weird: a classroom of middle school children are trying to kill their alien homeschool teacher.

    The visuals and imagery always get to me in this, when they were talking about the airborne pathogen and showed the person being sick in one panel (their insides even), and then often times he has a snake coiled around people, or once, people revolting against a store...pretty vivid imagery for some of the points he is making in these (often in the most minor panels but oh so noticable).

    That's classic Matsui for you. He's really good at using visual metaphors like this, and it's even more frequent and creepier in Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.

    Don't worry Asarii, it's totally fine.

    Assassination Classroom seems cool, but also the other ones u people have mentioned seem to be interesting!

    On the weird side
    Ryuuguuden definitely. It has a kind of Moebius vibe.
    Soil, the story is as disturbing as the art.

    How so? I've heard about it but never watched. Depending on your answer, perhaps I could give it a try!

    Not weird, but if there is a manga that I'd call as unpredictable, in a good way, is Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer or anything by Mizukami Satoshi, I guess.
