An excellent description that I found of Neon Genesis Evangelion:

I've always found Neon Genesis Evangelion to be much like quantum physics: if you think you know what's going on, that means you aren't trying hard enough. The longer you study it, the more confused it makes you, and yet you also become convinced that there must be some kind of method to this madness. Eventually, you conclude that the problem may just be that your puny human brain is too underevolved to understand it... either that, or of course there's always the possibility that the creators were just on crack.

Other animes that have made me go "What the frak am I watching?"...um....

Bobobobo-bobobo (manga). I'm still going WTF?

Weiss Kruez - once you get around the "4 assassins running a flower shop" idea, it makes more sense. Sorta.

Spider Riders and Bakugan speak for themselves. Same with Zatch Bell.

NGE too, but the MORE confusing part was End of Evangelion @___@ That raped my brain man!!
Totally, I guess we can all agree that Neon Genesis Evangelion was confusing. Also, if you have seen the last 2 episodes of the series, it makes absolutely no sense. I only understand that it showed how people in the anime felt and the last one for Shinji, in the last minutes it showed another version of his life. Anything else confused me, now they're making a movie called "Rebuild Evangelion" though I am not sure if it has come out yet.

-FLCL.
I watched the 1st episode and was like "...............", so I just watched it again, and then got into the series.

-Haruhi.
Ok, I started watching them as they were broadcast, then switched to chronological and got a bit confused in between.

I think Evangelion goes without saying.
Quite easily. I don't think anyone fully understands everything, even now.

FLCL just really bizarre.

Haruhi was hard to follow in broadcast order since the episodes kept jumping around. Watching the series in chronological order destroyed the charm though.

I thought that I understood what was going on in Eureka 7 in the beginning, but as it kept going, I kept getting lost in it all.

Serial Experiment Lain was an absolute mindf*ck.

hmmm.... dot hack sign was a little confusing (but then again, I was 7 the last time I saw it, funny, I got into anime as a kid, got over it, then went back to it again...weird...)
And what was REALLY popping into my mind was Bobo bobobo.....bo The 1 episode I watched, I was like... okay, this has to be some cheesy american version of anime, then I figures out it wasn't I'm like "Woah! I expected this from a american cartoon but...THEY CALL THIS AN ANIME?!? Jeez..."
lol, that was my exact reaction too lol.

wow surprised Akira hasnt been mentioned! But yea i was LOST at the end. You hav to watch that movie like 3 times before you understand everything and even then things are still up for interpretation

and for Silh for mentioning Big O's ending...yea it didnt make any sense

Red Garden. Or something like that. My friend made me watch it..it took me like 20 minutes to grasp the concept. By then the episode was over. And I'm not even sure now what the heck was going on. xD
