Alien Nine and Cencoroll successfully combine cute creatures with cute children and a dark streak of violence - Alien Nine being the far more disturbing of the two. Fans of one should DEFINITELY check out the other.

Weird, ugly and contorting alien creatures that are controlled by young children who can use these bizarre things to fight similar creatures. What's going on? Why's it going on?

Do either questions really matter? Cencoroll is a cool, lackadaiscal mood piece where the details of its plot is beside the point, while Alien Nine merely uses the weird set-up as a way to emotionally torment the girls stuck with the task (it hints at some broader scheme that never coalesces, and I doubt it could have, at that).

Boogiepop Phantom

Boogiepop Phantom

Strange things have been happening at a local high school... mysterious disappearances, strange powers and brutal murders all emerge amongst kids who, up till now, have been perfectly normal. Even the Shinigami (Angel of Death) herself has been sighted. What's happening? The answers lie in the mysterious creature known as Boogiepop...

Like Alien9, Boogiepop gives you the impression that something big (Really, REALLY BIG) is about to happen right around that next corner. While your brain is budy sorting out the bizzare imagery and situations you are suddenly presented with a very impressive story. Both also contain roughly the same level of each type of content.

Haré+Guu

Haré+Guu

Haré and his mother live peacefully in the jungle, until one day the boy is overtaken by a omnipotent shadow. Later, he awakens to find Guu, a strange girl with even stranger abilities - notably, the ability to switch from a cute, lovable Guu, to a menacing delinquent who eats everything. Now Haré must live with Guu, and lead a normal life, despite her oddities.

Like Alien Nine, Hare+Guu is another show that is fairly random and odd. It is very different, but incredibly funny. It has one character who is extremely odd, as well as some strange jungle creatures.

Ichigeki Sacchuu!! Hoihoi-san

Ichigeki Sacchuu!! Hoihoi-san

In the year 20XX, insects have developed immunity to every kind of insect spray. To counter the incredible rise in insect numbers the Japanese government developed tiny extermination robots code named "Hoihoi-san". The popularity of Hoihoi-san units rises not only as a night time extermination unit, but for doll collectors as well! However, when a rival company introduces its own tiny extermination robots a new form of corporate sabotage begins, as they target not only the insects, but all Hoihoi-san units themselves!

Looking for something super cute with lots of darkness and wackiness beneath? Look no further! Both are equally as bizarre and unique.

Alien Nine has a certain perverse element to it, one that I think is also in NTHT. Watch it.
