As said in title, I'm looking for some anime which have original and especially weird premises. They don't have to be good anime in any respect, so long as the premise or some part of the anime is inherently "can't keep my eyes off the screen" weird. In fact, it'd be even better if they're out-right terrible.

Examples I've seen:
  • Arakawa Under the Bridge: Super-rich guy has a no-favors OCD and must live under a bridge with a girl who claims she's from Venus. (I actually like this series!)
  • Kampfer: Guy goes female and his romantic interest turns out to to be a lesbian who likes his female form.
  • Kuragehime: Hikikomori who loves jellyfish and with a cross-dressing romantic lead. (Probably one of the better-executed of this list.)
  • Mysterious Girlfriend X: dat drool.
  • Sankarea: Guy with zombie fetish.
  • Strike Witches: Mahou shoujo's. With mecha-ish fighting. All in panties.

Revolutionary Girl Utena, which is on your Plan to Watch, fits this pretty well. It's really weird and everything is a metaphor. It's actually good though.

If you want something bad that is just the perfect level of bad to be hilarious,

It's not the worst anime ever made, but it's at the perfect level to be downright hilarious in all its badness. Probably the most sparkly Mary-Sue driven 'shounen' ever to exist.

Ranma 1/2 - Kamfer is pretty much a copy of this series, except Ranam is of course much better. Main guy turns into a girl when splashed with water and his dad turns into a panda. Another character turns into a pig, another into a cat, another into a duck, etc...

Kuchuu Buranko - A psychiatric who treats patients who have different diseases in a unique way. These diseases can range from permanent erections to OCDs to cell-phone addictions. The staff that worked on this one is the same staff that worked on Mononoke, so expect something out of ordinary.
