The question itself is really subjective, can't even answer it.

From what I've read, Slayers was huge when it came out but now it's just another classic from the 90s (I see it on lists every once in a while but not often, and little discussion or mention of it unless it's a conversation about classic anime).

he said BEFORE certain episodes. All of those have seen all 24 episodes. At episode 14, it was certainly up there with the best of the decade. If it had ended there, it may have stayed.

it really was! I remember watching it growing up and it was such a huge deal. Honestly your profile pic is another. Bebop was GOAT contender for a long time. Nowadays very few people talk about it.

I was told by numerous people that FMA Brotherhood was better than the OG. I've seen some of the OG but not much.


most people will say that, that's like the consensus, but I still believe 03 was better.

I'll answer your call. You summoned me!

I am among those people who think Darling in the Franxx is still on masterpiece level, yes, even after episode 14. And since you gave it a 9, I think you kinda agree with me.

I'll tell more, I think the anime started becoming better around that episode (14).

And I found myself having a similar opinion about a lot of other shows.

SAO? It's a very common opinion that "Aincrad is good, then from episode 14 onwards it goes downhill, and S2 is not good either". To me Aincrad is good, but it's when ALO started that it started really grinding my gears.
And it never stopped from that point.

And so on.
I've developed a sort of immunity to crowd's opinions.
They say that from episode X it becomes bad? Then for me, probably, episode X will be the turning point where I will find it better and better.
The last show that did this for me was Happy Sugar Life. People started bashing it after a certain episode...but the point is that it became so good after that episode, for me.
People just have wrong opinions, and I deal with them xP

I still prefer 03 to Brotherhood


Same.
The first 27 episodes of 03 portrayed the intro way better than the first 13-14 of Brotherhood.
The drawings of Brotherhood, after seeing 03, I was nah, I prefer the older ones.
The original turn 03 took? Good.
The way they decided to end Brotherhood? The whole "final deal" was so predictable it was obvious since episode 1.
Both are very good anime. But they should have a very similar score. And for sure BH is not #1 anime of all time, lol.

SAO is objectively false. It's still the biggest ongoing anime fam. Don't let the loud minority full you. Check the sales numbers, the games, the LN's, merch etc. Mother's basement isn't the end all be all. Most people like SAO or are indifferent to it.


I absolutely agree with you.
The only thing that changed since 2011 is the number of people following the likes of MB, DigiBro & Co, basically "every anime is bad because I over analyze split hairs", and watching the anime with the intention of criticizing instead of enjoying.
SAO is still a top tier series for everyone else.
And Kawahara couldn't give a damn about a couple of salty westerners anyway, lol.
He already admitted the real flaws the show has, and acted accordingly.
And it's up to him to decide where to drive the story anyway.
And a reader/watcher should let themselves get driven by the story, not require the story going where they want. Good grief...


Back on topic.
I see a lot of names here, that I recognize. And a lot of them are still good today like they were when they started.
It's just that people have an attention span that is too short.

SAO, Clannad, Haruhi, Gurren Lagann, Bleach, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Erased, Kill La Kill, I could go on forever.

These shows are not "not good anymore", they're just forgotten by the average "I watch everything that comes out every season" person.

Nah I remember what the Frankxx boards were like three episodes in. I mean you can look for yourself. There was a lot of hostility to certain aspects in the show. The rating wasn't that high even when the community started to be more receptive towards it. I didn't really see that many people claiming it was one of the best of the decade after episode 14. Lots liked it but many still had issues with it at that point including me.

I said "before certain episodes". Some said:

*before episode 14
*before episode 19/20.
*before episode 7/8

Those reviews were written after the last episode.

I would definitely say Death Note as it peaked at #1 and was in the top 10 for 3 years and has been falling slowly ever since. Even falling out of the top 20 in 2013.

Currently it sits at 53 which is actually one spot below Haruhi. I would imagine there are many around the time period that share a similar fate. Being on cable tv boosted a lot of series initially.

People will still look at it favorably because of their, ahem, attraction towards Zero Two.

Check the reddit threads at week 14. "end the show here! There's no way it can be topped!"

@FullyCharged I gave DITF a 9 because I rate most things highly if you check my average score. If I enjoy a series it's an 8, if I really enjoy it it's a 9, if I would change nothing about it it's a 10. DITF had best girl of the year, Ichigo and made me cry, so it was a 9. I also have given Fairy Gone a 10 when it's a 5.9 on here so you know, I do me. I will say that the story did get worse after ep 14 and the final arc didn't mesh with the rest of the story at all, it would be different if it were like TTGL and had that over the top storytelling already from the start, but it didn't. So when the twist came, it was like um, wtf. Zero two also completely loses her personality that made her tick. I mean there's a lot of issues with DITF post ep 14 narratively, but I still enjoyed it, so it got a 9, simple as. You'll also note I have Fate 06 as being the best of the Fate series which is similarly criticised, so yea, me rating stuff high is normal.

I was talking more on here. You can look at MAL's discussion they were pretty toxic around the show early on. Reddit I can't really speak for.

I also gave Fate 06 a 9/10.
My ratings are a little more loose so my 9/10 is probably "higher" rating.
Still my favourite Fate Anime series. Best one, I agree.
