^Yes, because people in Japan really had the ability to summon spiritual abilities by making hand signals. Also why is that a point even worth mentioning, do you just dislike new world-building?
DN, AoT, and SAO are the most popular by MAL standards but I'd doubt that SAO is as mainstream as Bleach, per se. Popularity is a really hard thing to calculate.
If SAO is the pinnacle of quality of this generation we anime fans don't deserve to take up more space in this world
The anime industry really has gotten downhill hasn't it
All variations of Fly Me to the Moon
My all-time favorite is probably Johnny Joestar vs Funny Valentine from the Steel Ball Run manga. For others I'd say:
Gon vs Pitou (Hunter x Hunter)
Asuka vs Mass Production Evas (The End of Evangelion)
Guts vs Rosine (Berserk)
Joe vs José (Ashita no Joe)
Mineta carries the entire MHA franchise
On a serious note, I do think that FMA:B is overrated. I like the show, a lot actually, but I don't think it's a masterpiece let alone the greatest show of all time. It's not a bad show in any way, I just don't think it does particularly spectacular at any aspect. Storyline? Steins;Gate and HxH's Chimera Ant's arc have much better-written plots. Characters? Evangelion curbstomps FMA:B. Action? JoJo does better. Comedy? Cowboy Bebop, to make a fair comparison, handled comedy much better while holding a serious tone. Animation? One Punch Man or any big studio seasonal has better animation, mainly because it's much shorter. FMA:B as a whole feels like a complete experience, which I completely respect, but it doesn't try to go beyond. It's just good, great even, but not a masterpiece in any category. Being such a well-rounded anime, I understand why it garnered such a huge following extending even beyond the anime community, but I don't want to say it isn't ambitious enough, rather it doesn't take its aspects a step further. Many shows outperform FMA:B in specific aspects that I wouldn't say it doesn't deserve its god-like status, rather that I completely disagree with its masterpiece footing.
Mai Sakurajima from Bunny Girl Senpai. If we're including side characters too, the rest of the Bunny Girl Senapi cast.

Devilman Crybaby, I watched Castlevania and it was really good but a) it's not an anime and b) Crybaby was still better. I recommend anyone to play the Castlevania games, though, Symphony of the Night is a masterpiece.
Marvel anime shouldn’t exist
I wouldn't say that Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, or The Promised Neverland are particularly complex in terms of their narrative, but I think they're pretty decent nonetheless. Go for Monster or Attack on Titan.
Anime was a mistake, but Kiss x Sis. Kiss x Sis is okay.
- Hayao Miyazaki
Well of course she has, these are universally loved masterpieces
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Kiss x Sis. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of ecchi most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Keita's Alabamian outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Vātsyāyana literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just sexual- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Kiss x Sis truly ARE libtards- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Ako's incestual catchphrase "Let's play some perverted things together on the bed Kei-chan." which itself is a cryptic reference to George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Masashi Suzuki's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Kiss x Sis tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within my immediate family tree beforehand.
FMA started before Bleach
I honestly think Rock Lee is infinitely better than Asta, he's just much more entertaining. Though that isn't saying much because Asta is one of the worst protagonists in any form of media I've ever seen.
