I need to find some sort of crazy, insane, psychedelic, trippy, anime... anyone know of any?

Possibly something to do with the end of the world...

u should fill out ur list so we know what you've seen...unless those 3 things are all you've seen.

then your first stop should be Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The first half will seem normal but by the time you get done with the second half prepare to go, "whoa...wtf?"

Dead Leaves is pretty insane. As is FLCL. And Excel Saga is insane too, though in a different way.

Serial Experiments Lain should fit the bill.

I'm surprised you would become an anime fan and take part in an anime website with just Wolfs Rain. O.O

Umm... Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, perhaps?

Yeah, I'm not really into anime that much, so I thought some people could try and change my view by presenting me with some good anime that are my taste.

Yeah I agree with those. Mushishi almost matches exactly my hallucinations during my one experience with magic mushrooms so you might want to check that out too.
Samurai Champloo is also pretty cool, the animation style plus the music makes it kinda cool.

And I will never hesitate to recommend Windy Tales (Fuujin Monogatari). There is some super psychadelic episodes there and the whole concept is very trippy - flying cats and school girls who control the wind.

Um.. yeah..

Texhnolyze, that serie is weird, still cool, but in a weird way :p
Paranoia Agent, didnt really like it as much myself, but its fits in what you search.
If you search at the genre "Dementia" at for example : www.anidb.net , I think you would find what you are looking for ;)

Where the hell do people come up with the idea of bumping threads that are a year and a half old. D:

I can't fucking believe I'm the one getting banned when there are morons running around bumping threads that are 2 years old

On the other hand, it's kind of nostalgic

Mushishi really psychedelic in every way, I suggest this show to all my friends. Great concept, story and audio that goes well with the visual.

Paprika is pretty fucking trippy. It is based around dreaming and lucid dreaming. Also the plot is great on top of that.

I'm gonna have to agree on with Dead Leaves and FLCL being pretty wild.

Dead Leaves is about some amnesiacs who wake up naked and then get sent to prison and have to break out.

FLCL is about an alien named Haruko Haruhara who comes to Earth in search of someone called the Pirate King, but while doing so she helps a boy grow up.

Also, I'd like to personally add Kick Heart. I didn't like it, but its about 11 minutes long and its really weird. Its a love story between a masochistic wrestler and a sadistic wrestler.

A boy is asked by his father to pilot a giant robot and fight against aliens called Angels trying to get to something on Earth. But while doing so, he discovers many secrets about the Angels and the robot he pilots.

No anime is psychedelic enough to compare to people replying seriously in this thread; not even cat soup.
