List RulesVote up anime that get a lot of hate but are actually great.

Anime fans have distinct tastes and may not love every show, but there are some series that attract a lot of unwarranted hate. Often, these despised shows are also some of the most popular anime—franchises like Sword Art Online and Attack on Titan have seemingly equal groups of devotees and haters. 

A lot of anime don't deserve all the hate they get. These shows are by no means perfect – many of them have serious flaws – but they're better than their critics give them credit for.
