* Until a couple of years ago, you couldn't say that you remotely liked Bruce Faulconer's soundtrack for ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. To utter such words would have you [[FanDumb mocked]] for enjoying music that was inferior to the original track and make some fans [[FanMyopia question your fandom.]] Now, Bruce Faulconer's scores are fondly remembered, especially Vegeta's Super Saiyan Theme, Ginyu Transformation, Goku's Super Saiyan 3 transformation, and DBZ Finale. Even those who overall enjoyed the Japanese track better have their favorites and those who don't like Faulconer's work do show some appreciation. Most of this new respect happened because of Kai, which originally had a completely different, divisive, and blatantly plagiarized soundtrack by Kenji Yamamoto. Some fans even wish Faulconer would return to ''Dragon Ball'', thinking his score would go great with Kai. Don't believe us? A simple search of "dragon ball kai with faulconer score" on Website/YouTube should bring up plenty of proof.

** ''Franchise/DragonBall'' in general was this to Western viewers. There have been multiple attempts to bring the franchise stateside, but all have failed. The Harmony Gold dub never officially aired. The [[Creator/TheOceanGroup Ocean Dub]] of ''Anime/DragonBall'' only lasted one season before getting cancelled. A year later, they skipped to ''Anime/DragonBallZ,'' and while it lasted longer, it got cancelled on a cliffhanger due to airing at a poor timeslot. When ''WesternAnimation/{{Toonami}}'' [[NetworkToTheRescue picked up DBZ]], the ratings skyrocketed, which allowed the show to get revived with a new English dub by Creator/{{Funimation}}.

* When ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' first aired, many fans of the ''Adventure'' series were disappointed and confused by the lack of relation between the stories, and much of the themes and subtext were lost on younger viewers. Over a decade later, thanks to both access to the Japanese version and a higher demand for more cerebral, deconstructive series, ''Tamers'' has gained a large amount of popularity, and is easily the second most popular Digimon series. The fact that a popular countdown artist by the name of ''WebVideo/TheAutarch'' put it #1 on his "Top 10 most nostalgic animated shows" list may also have something to do with that.

Added DiffLines:

* In TheSixties, ''Anime/HolsPrinceOfTheSun'' had an horrifyingly TroubledProduction, suffered lots of ExecutiveMeddling and bombed as a result. Now it's considered as one of the most classic anime movies ever.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' has a minor example. The ending is still controversial and the issues pointed out are still there and still bother fans, but the following installment, ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'', was so divisive and the fans hate the ending so much that ''[=DR3=]'' got fans back for this.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has always been popular in Japan, but it took a while for it to catch on in the west. While it was never hated in western countries, it was always pushed aside by other Magazine/ShonenJump series and remained a CultClassic at best, thanks to [[NoExportForYou a lack of localization]] (primarily due to the [[ShoutOut/JoJosBizarreAdventure character names]] creating [[ScrewedByTheLawyers a gigantic mess of legal issues]]), although MemeticMutation caused a bump in popularity in the early 2000's. Then it gained a proper anime (as opposed to 13 half-hour [=OVAs=]) in 2012, and because it came nearly 25 years after the manga started, it has no {{filler}} and it doesn't have to worry about [[OvertookTheManga taking a different path in the story]]. Because of this and [[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle the tie-in game]], [=JoJo=] became exponentially more popular in TheNewTens, an era where fellow Shonen series were starting to fall off in popularity. The anime's popularity has also led to more people playing [[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture the Capcom fighting game]].
