In recent memory, definitely Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn for me. I initially started watching the show with very high expectations, and I was definitely satisfied in the end.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. When I heard that there was another adaptation that did a much better job at following the manga,I was excited. When I actually watched it,I was blown away.Everything that I expected from the show went above and beyond,and it,without a doubt, my favorite anime.

Well i usually don't like going in with high expectations. I goin with no expectations so that i never feel disappointed

but one show that did go above and beyond what I was looking for was Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

I went in just trying out another action/anime so that i can get hooked on another anime at most, I got much more

not only is Full metal Alchemist: brotherhood my second favorite anime, it's one of my top favorite SHOWS EVER.

One Piece is my favorite Show +Anime

In terms of quality of the show itself FMA: brotherhood is better than One Piece

but in terms of just pure joy, connection to the characters, the feeling of adventure and everything personal. One Piece takes the cake.

Full Metal Alchemist is an AWESOME Anime and just awesome show PERIOD


but One Piece is just a freakin' adventure. it's a life changing experience!

So i'd say both One Piece and FMA: brotherhood since we are strictly speaking anime here.

I definitely agree with you, Black Lagoon and Fate/Zero were amazing.

From this anime season I'd have to go with Aldnoah.Zero. I was expecting a lot considering Gen Urubuchi and Ei Aoki played important roles in the creation of it, but I got a lot more than I expected.
Also Ao Haru Ride, I'd heard so much good things about it so I thought I'd give it a try. The characters are great, and the animation is usually pretty good.

Clannad, I was expecting a cute romance, but I got a lot more depth.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I had already seen the original FMA anime, so when I heard there was a remake I was pumped. I went into it with great expectations, but it just blew me away.

Free! Eternal Summer.

I expected great things from the second season after a great first season and I believe it delivered.

What makes this anime great is this...



No, i'm just kidding. What makes it great is that it has characters with distinct personalities... you have this... quieter...stubborn Haruka to cheerful and talkative nagisa, to kind and gentle makoto and nerdy and methodical Rei. 4 different personalities with different sense of humour united as 1.

And I just enjoy the themes that they explore in the anime... like... fear of swimming... how to teach someone to swim properly... you have to know why your students cannot learn.

and most importantly, the friendship explored in the anime is just simply beautiful. and the message of being "Free"... I love Haruka's stubbornness, he always stick to his own philosophies... I like that he doesn't care about fame.

Hunter x Hunter
Fate/Zero (hopefully the new Fate/Stay Night will join this list)
FMA both series (though Brotherhood was better imo)

this is off the top of my head

Berserk. It was highly recommended by a friend so I went into it with high expectations but oh boy! it exceeded my high expectations. So far, no other anime has been able to take its number 1 spot from my favorite anime list!
