I'm not sure how many anime you could come up for this, but how about a High Stakes theme?

Shows like Kaiji, Bokurano, One Outs, etc. Maybe you could make the theme incorporate a wider variety of the sort, so you could get more anime in - shows like Higashi no Eden or Death Note might be able to fit somehow.

In general, I'd love to see a marathon which promoted older anime... I know you always throw in an awesome selection but it'd be nice to either focus on a decade or eliminate a decade altogether. Something like that.

I also love the Post-Apocalyptic/Futuristic idea... looking forward to that one for sure.

A pity I missed out on the Manly Macho Monthly Marathon.

Could try something based on shows with under 1000 views.

Could include:
Legend of the Galactic Heroes
Sexy Commando
Mazinger Z
etc.

Doing this may add rec's for some of the less watched shows and would finally get me to start LotGH.
