Not all shows that are popular get bashed for being crap; in general, if an anime separates itself from the pack by being different, it will not be hated when it becomes popular. Examples of this: Haruhi Suzumiya mixed up the order and was bizarre, Higurashi no naku koro ni shocked the audience with its dualistic approach and its beautiful use of gore and mind****ary, and Deathnote created a new genre based on strategy in its most pure form. People love to hate animes that are popular despite the fact that they are quite a bit like old animes of the same genre; if you make a new genre, then you can't be seen as a rip-off of something else.

It is true that authors of less popular works have more liberties. They are not limited by satisfying regulations and blood / gore or moralities of masses, they can make something that is really their own work. But when show is popular, it is popular with a reason so,... it really depends on what is more important to person who is watching anime it the end. For me is; the more i watch / read anime / manga, I search for more "intensive" sensations from them, witch means that every year i am into more obscure stuff.
