* The first two seasons of ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' were pretty massive {{Base Breaker}}s, with a lot of criticism going to the uneven pacing and lackluster animation, as well as some very controversial creative decisions regarding the Shitenou. Season 3 won praise for having a noticeable AnimationBump and stronger writing.

* Okay, ''KannazukiNoMiko'' is a TwelveEpisodeAnime, but it still grows a definite beard halfway through. Be patient with the silly mechas and shonen anime clichés -- when Chikane's issues take centre stage, that's when things are about to get way the hell more interesting.

* ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'' did this from episode 8 and 9 onward. Before that, it received mixed reviews from fans, some thought that the idea was better than the execution, that it suffered from RomanticPlotTumor and that Maki Okada's involvement in the writing made the series overly melodramatic. After these episodes, the mysteries of the series set in, the ShipTease is more fitting, the characters have more depth, their dramas seem more believable and sympathetic to the fans and many fans enjoyed the tear jerking and the dramatic tone the series took.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/{{Mayoiga}}'' did this from episode 7 onward. The series had a slow start, unsympathetic characters that were mostly bystanders, bland or screaming dumbasses, mysteries that made no sense and a plot that didn't really seem to go anywhere. From [[spoiler: Masaki's witch hunt]] from there on, the characters are shown to be more complex, the mysteries start to get solved and things get clearer, and the fans starting to genuinely enjoy the series, rather than consider it SoBadItsGood.

** [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist The 2003 anime version]] likewise picks up around the time of [[spoiler:Hughes' death]], splitting form the manga's storyline and evolving into a truly dark and compelling drama. By the time Ed fought [[spoiler:and killed]] Greed, its beard had grown out to roughly ZZTop proportions.

Added DiffLines:

* LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon undergoes a noticeable shift in quality starting with Volume 5, where the story actually begins to challenge the main characters and the stakes become higher. The anime, however, does not do a very good job illustrating this, leading to criticism that the series arguably does not deserve.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' started getting it's own voice during the Universe 7 VS Universe 6 tournament. It had a very powerful plot twist with [[spoiler Frost being revealed to be EvilAllALong]], and featured some of the most tactical and well thought-out fights in the entire ''franchise'', helped in no small part due to the U6 fighters having very unique fighting styles. The one thing that eventually won the fans over, however, was [[spoiler: Goku combining the power of Super Saiyan Blue with the Kaio-Ken and breaking the very concept of time itself.]]

* {{Kinnikuman}} starts off as a parody of superheroes with a goofy MonsterOfTheWeek gimmick until the Choujin Olympics start and by the end [[ArtEvolution the art starts to get more detailed]] and the series becomes the ProfessionalWrestling epic with imaginative villains it's best known for.

* The first four episodes of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' are decidedly episodic. Girl gets powers, fights MonsterOfTheWeek, rinse, repeat, and the animation style jumps about quite a bit. Then the plot does a turnaround, removes the MonsterOfTheWeek entirely, and adds the DarkMagicalGirl and the space battle cruiser staffed by [[BlingOfWar military-uniform]] garbed mages.

* ''Anime/{{Pokémon}}'' has suffered from AnimationAgeGhetto and is generally agreed to be a GuiltyPleasure, but there are several parts of the series that older fans find accessible and/or good, the "Diamond and Pearl" series and the XY series being the most common contenders. The XY series in particular has gained positive reception, in the West, for it's AnimationBump, more layered plot and pandering to the older fanbase through the Mega-Evolution specials.

* While the lighthearted, villain-of-the-week style first half of ''Charlotte'' is entertaining enough, the show started its beard in episode six, with [[spoiler: Ayumi's death]]. The beard reaches full mountain man status by episode nine, when [[spoiler: time travel comes into play]].
