Seizure City

ridiculous, over-the-top and camp 80s and 90s OVAs with migraine-triggering visuals, sexy cyborgs, slick cityscapes, exploding faces, rape for fan service, alien vampires, psychokinesis and dimension rips. all entries may be enjoyed as comedies
1 AD Police Files

AD Police Files

unnecessary nudity, laughable stereotypes and cheesy music - welcome to this list

2 Parasite Dolls

Parasite Dolls

a better looking AD Police Files. other parts of the Mega Tokyo franchise, like Bubblegum Crisis/Crash, just aren't entertaining enough, by the parametres of this list

3 Ai City

Ai City

someone must have dropped a bag of cocaine on the studio floor and the dust must have been slowly rising as staff were working on this anime, imperceptibly tripping balls. yes, this is a reference from Vatican Miracle Examiner

Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma

gorgeous cel art. the 1st episode has good action animation, making it vastly superior to the 2nd

14 Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons

Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons

tick as you watch: cheese, trash, apocalypse, evil lesbians, rape but make it sexy, women choose to fight in lingerie because that's so original and let's not think about good costume design shhh 

credit where it's due - not many series have the guts for their protag to start out as a massive racist asshole and develop, over the course of 25 episodes, into a slightly less racist but just as massive of an asshole

15 Cyber City Oedo 808

36 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2000)

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2000)

prequel to the 1993 OVAs and should be watched first because they take pains to explain the dynamics and the stands

45 Reign: The Conqueror

Reign: The Conqueror

I feel like this is what Gonzo were going for with their futuristic reimaginings of Samurai 7 and Romeo x Juliet, but they failed where Madhouse has succeeded, in my opinion. (Gankutsuou is alright though)

46 RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne

RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne

Cyber City Oedo 808 is genuinely badass (well except for the 3rd one). Love the dub. They replaced the music and it made one hell of a difference.
Also, Cybernetics Guardian most definitely needs to be on the list. Loosely related to Genocyber (it's even mentioned there).
