i don't even clearly understand what that word means
>adj. having the qualities of surrealism; bizarre
>a 20th Century avant-garde movement in art and literature that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind, for example by the irrational juxtaposition of images and the creation of mysterious symbols.
>Surrealism, an anti-rational movement of imaginative liberation in European (mainly French) art and literature in the 1920s and 1930s(...) The term surrealiste had been used (...) to indicate an attempt to reach beyond the limits of the 'real'. Surrealism seeks to break down the boundaries between rationality and irrationality, exploring the resources and revolutionary energies of dreams, hallucinations, and sexual desire. Influenced both by the *SYMBOLISTS and by Sigmund Freud's theories of the unconscious, the surrealists experimented with *AUTOMATIC WRITING and with the free association of random images brought together in surprising juxtaposition. (...) The adjectives surreal and surrealistic are often used in a loose sense to refer to any bizarre imaginative effect.

To me surreal just means it's confusing. I don't "get" it and I think that's the point. It's like throwing random stuff out there and then connecting them together vaguely and hoping it comes out nice.
Is this about Sonny Boy? I don't understand what's going on there, but the individual subplots are kinda cool.
Surrealist art is supposed to be emotional over logical. It's like the phrase "just turn your brain off" but used to positive effect.

Oh so the post is asking about anime/manga that I can enjoy with my brain turned off?
Mind Game (2004) based on Robin Nishi's manga has some surreal moments that's the best I got sadly.
They're fine, all they do that people would be against is translating the loli word as you would expect of commie.
What about Oishi? I'd say that his style is also a part of what defines that distinct SHAFT look.
