"Widely accepted", doesn't mean it has to be my opinion. I personally think the anime is 10x better than the manga. If I could un-read the manga, and be only an anime watcher, I would. I like the art-style better in the anime, and I find nothing wrong with the pacing. Not to mention I liked almost all the fillers I watched. I personally find the anime better, and my opinion isn't going to change because (according to you) a lot of people disagree with me.
