Title is pretty self explanatory.

Mine would be Fate/Zero and Black Lagoon. Expected great things and got more what I was looking for, especially Black Lagoon.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

I had heard tons of hype about Fullmetal and when I finally watched brotherhood I was blown away. Sadly, when I went back and watched the original series I felt as if it was not a good as brotherhood.

The Irregular at Magic High school.

I went into it thinking it would be a good time waster, but I got much more.

Ping Pong the Animation. Who knew a show about table tennis could turn into so much more?

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

I knew going into it that I'd probably like it, but never did I believe it would become my #1 favorite as fast as it did.

No Game No Life for me. Saw all the reviews, so I was really excited to check it out expecting it to be amazing. And it truly was, I really love that show! (:

So far, Terror in Resonance is doing just that. I had high expectations for this show coming in because of Shinichiro Watanabe, and it has been every bit as awesome as I imagined it would be from the director of Cowboy Bebop.

Akira.
Kino's Journey.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica: Rebellion.
Mushishi.
Space Battleship Yamato 2199.
Summer Wars.

Everything else I can think of that's blown me away I either had low/moderate expectations for or went into blind.

Hmm so far AGK has been absolutely spot on for me. I know the hype train is a-chugging, but I really do enjoy it.

Aldnoah Zero

I go into most anime with pretty blind expectations, that said I never thought I would say Hunter x Hunter is my favorite anime series.period.

ONE PIECE exceeded my high expectations in an anime, and the very most unexpectedly. Before One Piece, Naruto held my top anime and I didn't think anything would bump it off into my #1 Favorite Anime of all time. Unfortunately, One Piece has also ruined not only other anime for me, but also movies, shows, books, etc. Eichiiro Oda is such a genius and talented it's ridiculous.

Zankyou no Terror. I went into expecting something good, and come the end, I think we're going to end up with something really special, and thus far I haven't been let down (touch wood).
