Momosuke is a young man with a dream: to travel Japan and collect one hundred stories. He journeys from place to place, searching for tales of the paranormal and bizarre, hoping to collect tales to publish in his book. However, the calm of Momosuke's life soon is shattered by a chance meeting with three sinister beings: Mataichi the priest, Nagamimi the bird-caller, and the beautiful Ogin. Soon, Momosuke learns that there might be more to his newfound comrades than first meets the eye...
Just the settings in the both of them are screaming out:
a. watch while 16 and under are sleeping (For all the moms and dads out there!)
b. makes great for creeping out people at parties.
Kemonozume and Requiem from the Darkness both have very unusual animation styles where even ordinary things look skewed and nightmarish. Both also include alot of mature themes and both have a way of bluring the line between human and monster.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Just like in Kemonozume, Claymore's main faction is a secret organization with a main goal of ridding the world from the Yoma: monsters that eat human innards and can change into any human form to avoid detection. However, the story is set in a world based out of the middle ages, and has a lot of gore and blood. If you like a story involving the mystery behind a secret organization and don't mind blood and guts, then Claymore is for you.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
While FLCL and Kemonozume share nothing in common when it comes to plot, setting, and themes, both are very unconventional and provocative in thier stories, animation, and delivery. If you don't mind being surprised, challenged, or even shocked, you may enjoy the rarities that are FLCL and Kemonozume.

This recommendation is mainly because Kemonozume's romantic premise is based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. While Kemonozume is modern, Japanese, and disturbingly graphic, Romeo x Juliet is traditional and closer to Shakespeare's original.
Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.
There is very little romantic tension between the characters in Akira, however the amount of blood, guts and gore would be similar to Kemonozume. If you can still watch Kemonozume to the very last episode without passing out midway or having nightmares, then you would be able to watch Akira too.
