Let’s start this series off with a bang and talk about five of the weirdest anime I have seen to date. I’m sure we have all seen at least a couple anime that has left us confused and somewhat uncomfortable at some point right? RIGHT?! So, let’s dig into the anime that left a weird yet unforgettable impression on me.
5. Brothers Conflict
Brothers Conflict is probably the least weird out of the five I chose. As great as reverse harems are this has got to be hands down the weirdest concept for the genre I’ve seen so far. A girl who ends up with many beautiful boys surrounding her is far from strange in anime but them all being her new step brothers is sickening. Although they aren’t related by blood it still left a really bad taste in my mouth. What baffled me most was the fact that nearly all thirteen brothers fell head over heels for their new sister. Do they have no morals? Or sense? Or taste in anything other than bland women? Overall I did find this an entertaining watch but the actual concept had me reaching for a bucket.
A part of me wonders why I put this so far down the list but apparently i’ve seen even weirder shows than Himegoto. An anime with a crossdresser in is nothing new and it looks very cute and innocent from the picture. Well, that is until you find out girls are forcing him to be a beautiful girl and he has no say in the matter as they use and abuse him. This anime seems to think that using and abusing a boy who looks feminine is ok but it most certainly isn’t. Whenever I see images from this anime I cringe a little and wonder why I watch it in the first place.
3. First Love Monster
You ever start a show and you think to yourself this is weird, wrong and I should probably click out now but you just can’t? The utter madness of it all has you transfixed and you keep watching episode after episode even though you know better? This is what happened to myself when I watched First Love Monster. Almost all of the characters were completely insane. I mean, a fifteen year old girl who falls in love with a ten year old because he saved her and also happens to look her age is disturbing. Not to mention the fact that she doesn’t seem to see a problem with it. It’s weird, wrong and I cannot condone it. The saving grace of this show was my favourite character Taga who actually acted his age and apart from being a bit a tad evil was completely sane.
2. Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls
I feel that the fact that this is a harem about monster girls says it all really. I will be honest and say overall I did enjoy Monster Musume. I had to look past a lot of questionable things within this show but if you take that away it is pretty adorable. The girls are cute, from the waist up that is. While this isn’t all that different to most harems the idea of monster girls all falling for a human who tries his best to restrain himself is strange and that is putting it lightly. Things would be a lot less weirder if they were all just human *sigh*.
1. Panty and Stocking with Garter Belt
Panty and Stocking had to get the crown when it comes to weird anime. This anime is like an X rated version of the Powerpuff Girls and has the weirdest stories I have seen so far. Panty and Stocking was a show that made me feel weird and uncomfortable but at the same time it made me laugh. The idea of two angels getting kicked out of heaven and having to work their way back in was a pretty amusing concept and the fact that they are so bad and foul mouthed just made it weirder and funnier. The zany animation style mixed with the ridiculous adult humour and characters was somehow very charming when combined together.
Thanks for reading and I hope you’re having a great day!
