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]].

* A rare character example: Minmay from ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' was one of the most hated characters ever, partly due to her whiny voice provided by Creator/RebeccaForstadt (the QUEEN of the BrattyHalfPint voice), the atrocious quality of her dubbed songs, and her [[TheDitz overall ditziness]]. But over the years, people who once hated her have now warmed up to her and see her more as a goofy but good-hearted girl who was unable to cope with the insane situation she found herself in.

* The ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime's ''Orange Islands'' arc was originally disregarded as {{Filler}} that didn't really amount to anything since the Gym challenges weren't always actual battles and the League itself wasn't based on an in-game region. Nowadays, whenever a debate starts concerning Ash's competence as a trainer, people will often mention it immediately, since his victory there technically means Ash qualifies for the title of Champion, and that also marks the first real sign of his growth as a Pokémon Trainer. It is also pointed out that the Orange Islands brought several fan-favourites such as Ash's Lapras, Ash's Snorlax, and the Crystal Onix, and that the battle between Ash and Drake was the series' first full battle. As such, several people are interested in the upcoming ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' adaptation because it seems to be something of a loose spiritual adaptation of the Orange Islands arc.

** Speaking of ''Sun and Moon'', the anime adaptation received immense amounts of InternetBackdraft when the first promotional material came out, due to Ash's [[YouDontLookLikeYou heavy redesign]], the remarkably different animation style, and the fact that the Gen VII season was coming off of the heels of Ash's Kalos League loss, which too caused heavy fan backlash (both because of it repeating formula and because of teasers that implied Ash would actually win this time). By the time the show started airing in Japan, fans, while still wary, warmed up to the ''Sun and Moon'' anime for its greater amounts of expressiveness (compared to the DullSurprise that plagued earlier seasons), improved promotional trailers, and the potential uniqueness of the season due to how different the Gen VII games are anticipated to be.
** The Diamond and Pearl seasons were often criticized initially, due to the repetition of the previous two eras' formula, the ArcFatigue and increased {{Flanderization}} of the cast. After being followed by the ''Black and White'' seasons however, which deviated greatly from characterization and continuity and are often panned for messy pacing and execution (as well as having some of the series' most polarising additions such as Iris, as well as replacing Brock with Cilan and, for the first half of the series, making Team Rocket competent and not funny at all), the DP era tends to be appreciated more for being the last era feeling in tone with the original format. It also helps that Ash's rivalry with Paul was very intense, Ash shows a great deal of ingenuity as a trainer (such as the countershield), there is character development all around, and the villain plot greatly stands out among the rest, which are typically non-existent or rushed.

* The Vehichle ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' didn't enjoy half the popularity of the Lion Force Voltron. But that's only because it followed the Lion episodes in most markets (in some, it was shown in bits and pieces between several Lion episodes). The Vehicle series wasn't "bad" by any stretch. It simply had the unfortunate tendency to be compared to the "cooler", but more formulaic Lion series. Kids of that time latched on to the Lion series probably because it had elements that they already identified with: Fairy tales (magic, castles, princesses, evil rulers) and superheroes (the SuperRobot and the FiveManBand). Vehicle Voltron was adapted from the more MilitaryScienceFiction show ''Anime/DairuggerXV'', presenting a more mature HardScienceFiction ''Franchise/StarTrek'' like format. It also had a lot of characters to keep track of on both sides as well as presenting a lot of shades of grey instead of good vs. evil. Kids just weren't yet ready for a cartoon that had a lot of character relationships, politics, and subplots. It was the early 80s after all. Kids like their formulas. They just wanted to see "action". But then ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' would come along and then they'd be ready. Now Vehichle Voltron is looked at as wrongfully underappreciated. One will also now notice that ''Dairugger'' was far less Bowlderized than ''Golion''which even in its original form was formulaic MonsterOfTheWeek.
* Until a couple a 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 YouTube should bring up plenty of proof.

* In another Ghibli example, Disney's dub of ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' commissioned Joe Hisaishi to rerecord his score with a symphony orchestra exclusively for their release. Miyazaki himself approved of the end result. So did certain critics. Many, many American purists, however, were '''''furious''''', instantly condemning the new score as "a crime against all humanity." The Ghibli Blog infamously even called both the dub and the rescore the equivalent of ''Anime/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'''s first American dub, "Warriors of the Wind." Perhaps because of this, Disney reissued the dub without the rescore. Although today there are some fans who still bitterly resent the rescore, ironically, its removal from the dub has caused other reviewers to give it a second evaluation; many recent reviews of the film and the redub now declare the new work as one of the dub's biggest assets, as well as a genuine improvement over the original. Even the rescore has a following of fans, many of who were saddened when it was jettisoned. In fact, the rescore received a soundtrack release in Japan! (The only way to view the film with the rescore is to import the BD from Japan, UK, or Australia.)

* In the realm of the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise, we have ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar''. Initially, the series didn't do well, and until ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' came along, this series had some of the worst ratings in the franchises history (Though even then, it still did much better then most other series that aired at the time). It was also seen as a bad Retraux of the original two seasons, having the two main character being Nagisa (Saki) and Honoka (Mai) expies, and also garnered some detractors for toning down the realistic Seinen elements of the original, as well as favoring zippy flight and beam spam over hard hitting fisticuffs for quite a bit of the shows run as a result of MoralGuardians attacking the original show and its sequel and after GrowingTheBeard, it still never as much money as the original series or series after it ever made, regardless of quality (even when it didn't make '''10 Billion Yen''' that year, it still made more money then most other big anime franchises could even dream of making, just not as much as what Toei wanted). As the years of gone by since then, however, the fanbase sees the series with much more prestige, due to managing to make Saki and Mai their own characters, Michiru and Kaoru being the first true DarkMagicalGirl characters introduced in the franchise, the latter half of the series gaining back some more classic elements, like hard hitting attacks, and many of the elements introduced here were mixed in with these original elements, setting new standards for the series to have when it comes to the fight scenes, and the villains as a whole are considered much more memorable, well written, and generally menacing in their own way and not too wooden either. It is currently held on many fan lists as amongst the best seasons in the franchise, alongside the likes of the EnsembleDarkhorse of the franchise, ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'', which says quite a bit for the series after its initial sour reception amongst the fanbase.

* ''Anime/IdolmasterXenoglossia'' was bashed by fans of the [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster original game]] for being an InNameOnly adaptation when it first came out. Nowadays it's seen as a more decent robot anime ''as long as'' you don't consider it as an adaptation of ''IDOLM@STER''. This is mostly because there has since been a [[Anime/TheIdolmaster more faithful adaptation]] and that Xenoglassia was directed by Nagai Tatsuyuki, who later went on to direct other animes, most notably ''[[Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay Anohana]]''.
