Are you looking for crazy, off the wall anime that has such a fast pace that you simply stare in awed fascination, wishing you knew what the plot was? Look no further than these two anime! With mentions of alien/fantasy forces at work, crazy fight scenes, and an intriguing cast, you'll wonder aloud "What am I watching, and why do I find it so awesome?" 

Naga Naga says...

Both are crazy anime with surreal plot and mad charachters. They are both very short but well made. Action is extremely laud, funny and so damn fun. Both anime have excellent following music and soundtrack. If you liked the madness of  one it would be crime not to watch other one.

Both FLCL and Kyousogiga are filled with purdy and trippy animation that perfectly encapsules all the antics that the characters are up to. Neither bothers to make all that much sense and might not always care to explain what's happening to the viewer. If you want exposition you should watch something else. Anyway, if you liked either of these you should really check out the other one.

Ebichu

Ebichu

$10 can not only buy you a cute hamster; it also get you a devoted housekeeper who will cook, clean, put on suntan lotion, and cheer you on when your relationships get stale! Does it seem like a dream? Then picture what life would be like if anybody who calls your house gets to know the contents of your underwear drawer! If you can’t imagine what rodents and ecchi have to do with each other, then enter the life of the hamster Ebichu, her sexy master, and the good-for-nothing boyfriend Kaishounachi, and see why a talking hamster can be such a bother!

A similar sense of humor is present in both FLCL and Ebichu. If you liked one, you might like the other.

Same kind of drawing, voice acting, japanese pun, non sense, violence. Both are short series. Ebichu is more realistic and the content is more explicit (sex scenes/ecchi stuff). FLCL has more action and futuristic aspects. The art is better and the soundtrack is really cool. 

Dragon Half

Dragon Half

Meet Mink, the hyper fire-haired teenage daughter of the world's greatest dragon slayer... and dragon! With the blood of both human and dragon flowing through her veins, Mink’s life is anything but ordinary -- especially since she’s in love with Dick, a musical dragon slayer! With enemies at every turn (including the half human/half slime princess Vena), Mink must try her hardest to win the affection of a man who wants nothing more than to see her dead. Can she win the guy without losing her life?

FLCL has a wee bit more meat to it than dragon half and is a bit more demented, but it contains a LOT of the same sort of strange and random humor. Strongly recommend both.

Foop Foop says...

There are many things that Dragon Half and Furi Kuri have in common, such as the craziness of the stories. If you are the kind of person who likes things that don't make sense, so much to the extent that it becomes funny, then both of these shows would be right for you.

Noiseman Sound Insect

Both are extreamly weird, have a quite unusual/unique animation style, and have lots of randomness at every turn. If you liked one you should like the other. Leave your brain turned off.

sothis sothis says...

How could you like FLCL but not like Noiseman (or vice versa)? Both are extremely abstract, involve a crazy mind trip, and have an unusual animation style. If you appreciated the bizarreness of one, you may appreciate the other (though I enjoyed Noiseman a lot more than the anime staple FLCL).

Mahoromatic

Mahoromatic

She cooks, she cleans, and is a lethal fighting machine. Mahoromatic, former Vesper battle android, has chosen to give up her weapons, extending her remaining life from 37 to 398 days. As Misato Suguru's maid, she fights battles of another sort, fending off an amorous teacher on one hand, ecchi magazines on the other. Can Mahoro save Suguru's innocence?

well... haruko isnt a robot or cyborg or anything, but she does complicate naota's life... a lot, not as cutesey as mahoro though

HumbertH HumbertH says...

Both protagonists Naota(FLCL) and Suguru(Mahoromatic) are of around the same age and find themselves living with an attractive female character (it appears both are older) who are not actually human. Mahoro is an android and Haruko is an alien. Both boys have some link to the female lead's past that is crucial to the progression of the story, and there is also a romantic attatchment between them. FLCL and Mahoromatic also throw in some great robot fight scenes for good measure and top it off with some hilarious pop/anime-culture references.

On a random note, Vespa is mentioned in both series. In Mahoromatic Vespa is the organisation that Mahoro works for, it is also interesting to note (and I'm kinda proud I figuired this out lol) that the insignia of Vespa is in the shape of a hornet/wasp and Vespa is the genus that comprises around 20 species of wasp-like insects. Also the annoying teacher chases Suguru and Mahoro riding a Vespa scooter when they try to go on a date(like an annoying wasp). In FLCL Haruko is also cluelessly described by Naota as the 'wasp woman', and she also rides a Vespa.

All in all, both great Gainax creations and would recommend both to any fan who knows what to take seriously in life, and what to rip the piss out of.
