Anime is already weird am I right? But there is a title that will make you look again for the second time. There are good titles, and there are bodies. But boy, you should know that there are some weird anime titles out there! 

In this blog, well be giving you a list of the craziest anime titles you ever see! Here are the 20+ Anime with ridiculous, weird, and maybe over-the-top titles!  Welcome, to the QuoteTheAnime Recommendation List.

YOU WON’T BELIEVE THAT THESE ARE ACTUAL ANIME TITLES

21. If I don’t successfully pick up 420 girls, I am going to die in a lot of different ways.

Title If I dont successfully pick up 420 girls, I am going to die in a lot of different ways
Genre Comedy, Romance
Type ONA
Studio Trigger
Premiered Jan 25, 2013
Episode Count 1
Duration 2 min.

Starting off with If I dont successfully pick up 420 girls, I am going to die in a lot of different ways. Yes, it is long and straightforward. But also weird in a lot of ways, it gives the plot of the anime and the motivation of the MC.

As well the fated occurrence if he fails to complete his goal. But dont worry too much, if you think that this anime will take 420 episodes to finish. This is only an ONA with one episode, in fact, it is a promotional video made for light novel writer Naruto Kiriyama who wrote, Yonhyakunijuu Renpai Girl, it is more like a reward the publishing house of his novel after winning the 14th Entame Taisho.

20. Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Lady’s School to be a “Sample of the Common People”

Title The Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Ladys School to be a Sample of the Common People
Genre Comedy, Romance, Ecchi
Type TV
Studio SILVER LINK.
Premiered Fall 2015
Episode Count 12
Duration 23 min. per ep.

For our second entrée, we have a narrative title that pretty much explains the story. The young lad was probably kidnapped by a young ladys school as an example of what a common person is. I feel like this is Nagataro before Nagataro got an anime adaptation, weird!

The Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Ladys School to be a Sample of the Common People follows an already weird main character named Kimito Kagarazaka. I said weird because of his fetish with the muscles of men, which is a lie in order to stay away from the elite all-girls school called Seikan Academy.

Ironically, he was kidnapped for that same reason and was used as a commoner example, just like the title said so.

19. I My Me! Strawberry Eggs

Title I My Me! Strawberry Eggs
Genre Comedy, Drama, Romance, Slice of Life
Type TV
Studio TNK
Premiered Summer 2001
Episode Count 13
Duration 25 min. per ep.

What? I my mama mia? Are you confused like the way I am?

At least this anime is not part of the long-title anime crew! The confusing anime doesnt really tell much, it could be about food. Or maybe romance because strawberries are sweet right?

Well, this is an anime about a guy who cross-dresses in order to get a job as a teacher in a school that doesnt accept men. Despite how unethical it is, and even though I love crossdressing, theres no shot I would do that as a teacher! But you might be wondering about the meaning of the title, right?  

Well dont think too hard, its just a Japanese pun that I dont understand. But Strawberry means Ichigo and Eggs is Tamago, ichigo tamago. 

18. YuruYuri: For Whatever Reason, Never Ending, Heart Throbbing, Pitter-patter, Paradox Eternal

Title YuruYuri: For Whatever Reason, Never Ending, Heart Throbbing, Pitter-patter, Paradox Eternal
Genre Comedy
Type Special
Studio Doga Kobo
Premiered Nov 16, 2011
Episode Count 1
Duration 3 minutes

A special episode of this series will leave your hearts going doki-doki as Chinatsus weird drawings of a handsome prince and an ugly girl come to life and find true love… well maybe not doki-doki since her drawings are horrendous. BUT, you get my point! 

We follow the adventures of Akari and her childhood friends as they start a new club called the Amusement club. For whatever reason, Chinatsu got roped into the mess and now their sole purpose is to entertain themselves!

17. I Want To Eat Your Pancreas

Title I Want To Eat Your Pancreas
Genre Drama, Romance, Slice of Life
Type Movie
Studio Studio VOLN
Premiered Sep 1, 2018
Episode Count 1
Duration 1 hr. 48 min.

Uhmm, no you cannot eat my Pancakes! Oh, wait, whats a pancreas?

Well, the ridiculous anime title is certainly not about Jeff Dahmer, nor does it share any relation to eating people! This is an incredible anime with unforgettable moments. An  aloof boy gets close with a dying girl.

Follow the story of two polar opposite individuals becoming close within an ephemeral time. It is an anime that explores the meaning of living. Yoru Suminos novel is a masterpiece, and the anime lists the already powerful story that he wrote.

 It might not be about eating my Pancreas, but this anime ate my heart and my soul!

16. WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

Title WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?
Genre Drama, Fantasy, Romance, Sci-Fi
Type TV
Studio Satelight, C2C
Premiered Spring 2017
Episode Count 12
Duration 24 min. per ep.

What would you do if its the end of the world? An engaging existential title that is a writers personal recommendation. Appalled with the title that sounds ridiculous but overwhelming if you watch the show.

It follows the story of Willem Kmetsch, a valor soldier who risks his life at the cost of leaving his loved ones in order to slay a monster of an enigma. He actually won, but was frozen like Aang or Captain America.

During his slumber, a scary monster called a beast emerges and causes the extinction of humankind. 500 years later, he woke up to find himself the last human alive.

It is an anime with a ridiculously long but interesting title. It is not comedic but rather a reflective title. Therefore, WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us anime deserves a spot!

15. Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren’t They?

Title Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Arent They?
Genre Action, Comedy, Fantasy
Type TV
Studio Diomedéa
Premiered Winter 2013
Episode Count 10
Duration 23 min. per ep.

Just like listening to anime op translations, anime titles could also be confusing. This ridiculous anime title gives me confusion that even persim berries wont save me! But this is Japan guys, so chill ya bum!

This is a story about three special teenagers who have super powers but all with their current life. They were summoned in a world where they are tasked to participate in different games similar to No Game No Life, but instead of 2 problematic children there are three!

Izayoi Sakamaki, Asuka Kudou, and You Kasukabe showed empathy towards Kurousagi, the bunny girl who found them. When they discover that her community is poor and lost its official status resulting in an unfertile land. The trio decided to help her and the residents!

Its a comedic isekai worth watching, but not wish to have it. But it begs the question, what if there is an anime like Guy Realizing, He Is Just An Anime Character, Arent We?

14. Listen To Me Girls. I Am Your Father.

Title Listen To Me Girls. I Am Your Father.
Genre Comedy, Romance, Slice of Life
Type TV
Studio feel.
Premiered Winter 2012
Episode Count 12
Duration 23 min. per ep.

Listen To Me Girls. I Am Darthva- I mean I am Your Father, this is not so weird compared to others but it is a ridiculous anime title. Its very commanding but does give hints about what it is.

Yuuta Segawa is the main character, a boy who started his freshman year of university.  He was asked to take care of 3 little children, by a friend whom he considers a big sister.  In order to prevent the three from coming along with their parents, big brother Yuuta Segawa took the role of a father figure.

It is a wholesome slice-of-life anime about child care, the main character who has to balance school and being a temporary guardian to three little kids. It might look bad in terms of quality, this feels studious they were getting a hang of it!

13. Mangirl!

Title Mangirl!
Genre Comedy, Slice of Life
Type TV
Studio Doga Kobo
Premiered Winter 2013
Episode Count 13
Duration 3 min. per ep.

Uhmmm…..First of all. This is not about being transgender, okay? Nor about gender identity. This is just a common cultural difference that we have. That is why it is ridiculous how it can misread English-speaking viewers. I showed this to my friends and they all thought it was Bl anime xD.

It is an anime about a group of girls who want to create a manga despite their lack of experience in making manga. But who can stop this amazing girl from achieving their goals?

Were going to launch a manga magazine

Will they be able to?

12. The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes

Title The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes
Genre Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Type TV
Studio Zexcs
Premiered Summer 2010
Episode Count 24
Duration 24 min. per ep.

The repetition is what makes the title hilarious! I love the short and precise titles in the past that are also hilarious. Well, the anime storyline isnt repetitive compared to the title.

It is an adventurous story, of a young mage with cursed eyes as he searches for useful relics to help their nation. Joined by a beautiful swordsman named Ferris Eris (The name is kinda funny xD), the two venture to achieve their goal and discover the secret behind his mysterious cursed eye.

The anime is already a bit old to the new baby bloomers of anime watchers, its worth checking out! Especially with its ridiculous anime title.

Title And You Thought There Is Never A Girl Online?
Genre Comedy, Romance, Ecchi
Type TV
Studio Project No.9
Premiered Spring 2016
Episode Count 12
Duration 24 min. per ep.

Well, the answer is yes, thats what I thought. Thats why I like boys because there were never any anime girls online. That sounds weird but the ridiculous anime title is actually true for most gamers.

Gamer girls are pearls in the sea after all.

But anyways the anime is about a dude who proposes to a crush he had in an online game, but was rejected after the girl told him that he was an old man in real life. Bummer, isnt it?  

Hideka Nishimura or Rusian in a video game was the naïve otaku who was rejected. Years later, he was in a guild with 3 other players. A female character stands out bearing the name of Ako. The girl falls in love with Rusian, but the trauma of the past still haunts him.

But one fateful encounter had led him to know their true identity. Ako and the other members are not just girls, but also his schoolmates!

Studio J.C.Staff
Premiered Spring 2015 
Episode Count 13
Duration 24 min. per ep.

I dont know, why are you asking me about anime titles?

This is another ridiculous anime title that was constructed as a question. But at least the good thing about it is that it is grammatically audible to read.

This is the story of Bell Cranel, grandson of Zeus as he embarks to the dungeon, levels up, and meets new allies. He used to be a washed-up kid, accepted by nobody, but everything changed when the Goddess Hestia took him and became part of her Familia.

The land of Ontario has its own mystery that will tie up with Bell Cranel as he rises in popularity. This is an anime about a weak mc who is actually stronger than most people think!

Give this anime title a round of applause for being straight to the point! It is quite long, its on point and provides a subtle hint about the plot.

We all have dreams, and Raul Chaser has one too! Just like the title implied, mc wants to be a HERO. However, due to the wonderful yet misfortunate events of the world leaning into peace. The hero program that he aims to join was shut down since theres no point in a hero if the demon king is already defeated.

Raul had no choice and had picked up a job at a small electronic shop. Surprisingly his coworker was a demon, the daughter of the defeated demon king. What lies in this seemingly chaotic scenario? Well, Fino Bloodstone was assigned to him to teach all about their job.

If you wished to have a little sister but never had one, then this anime is for you! It is a bit of a simple anime title, its not crazy unlike others, but its low-key ridiculous.

If you like anime stories that revolve around writer MC then this anime is for you. The anime is centered on a sisterobsessed main character who is a light novel writer. His works are mostly centered on stories about sister and brother relationships.

Along with his small group of friends, Itsuki and the others explore the life of a writer. Fun games, exploring Japan, and eating good food. It is a slice of life romcom that you should defo check out!

Okay back to long titles! Heres another anime that is straightforward at least but quite catchy and amusing to read.

My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy or simply Noucome is all about the young boy who was forced into a system called absolute choice. It presents him with a random choice that he must act based on what he chooses. So just imagine how difficult it would be, tarnishing his already Skyfall reputation.

My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy is an anime that you should definitely put on your list, that you wont probably watch because its already piled up with recommendations.

Type TV
Studio J.C.Staff
Premiered Summer 2019
Episode Count 12
Duration 23 min. per ep.

Yes, I love his mom and his two hit multi-target slippers.

But if you think this is a wholesome anime a mother loves, well this is anime, and no way this would be wholesome without ince- affection of a mother towards her son.

An isekai anime where Masato Oosuki was given and thrown into a fantasy MMORPG world. But instead of a solo adventure, her mom, who is called Mamako, tagged along. A mother with an overpowered ability travels with her son as they aim to clear the game.

Think of it as Kirito but instead of Asuna, his mom. That sounds weird, but yeah.

It follows the story of Yuuhi Amamiya who woke up with a talking lizard around him claiming that he was appointed as a knight to protect the princess and prevent the world from being destroyed by a Giant Hammer visible to the sky, only to the knights like him.

Unimpressed by the idea of risking his life for the world, Yuuhi just did what any normal human being would do, just think that they are hallucinating. All of this changes when he met Princess Samidare Asahina who aims to stop the hammer because she herself wants to destroy the world on her own.
