10. Akikan Anyone who has been to Japan will know that there are vending machines everywhere, and they sell everything from the regular stuff like snacks and drinks, to weirder things like underwear and lobsters. One thing that they don’t sell, however, are girlfriends, but that’s where Akikan comes into the picture. This anime is about soda cans that transform into girls. These soda can girls, which are either steel cans or aluminum cans, then battle it out with each other to determine whether steel or aluminum is better. Did I mention that they also need to be regularly infused with carbon dioxide? I’ll let you guess where the CO2 comes from. 9. Sleeping with Hinako There has been a series called "Training with Hinako" in which you basically have your own personal anime trainer called Hinako, helping you to get rid of those extra calories. Nothing weird here so far. Sleeping with Hinako is an entirely different matter though. The main point of this anime is to have it playing while you sleep. Basically all it is is a girl named Hinako sleeping in bed. Now lonely otaku will never have to worry about sleeping alone because they have Hinako sleeping beside them (or wherever their TV is located). 8. Lucky Star Most people who follow anime will know what Lucky Star is, so you might be wondering why it’s on this list. Well, rather than try to explain it, let me just ask this: can you summarize the plot of Lucky Star for me? Exactly, think about it and you’ll realize that Lucky Star is an anime about absolutely nothing. Whoever thought that an anime with no story whatsoever would be so popular? 7. Midori Days We all want to be close to people we like, but Midori Days takes it even further and physically attaches a girl to a guy. Seiji is a regular, lonely, high school boy that wakes up one day to find a mini-girl named Midori attached to his right arm. By attached, I mean that his hand has been replaced by the top half of a girl (from the waist up). If you don’t think this is a bizarre idea, you’ve probably grown immune to the strangeness of anime. 6. Samurai Cats They’re cats who are also samurai, and they work at a pizza joint. I don’t think I need to say more to justify this title’s placement on the list.
