So FMAB is my favorite anime of all time and it has been number 1 on MAL for a long time the last time a Anime past it was Your Name and that didn't last. But I do not think any anime in the next 5-10 year will beat FMAB for the top spot on MAL. That is for one reason that's because how popular this anime is.

Also I don't care about my grammar so yeah

watch FMA its better.

Probably not it got alrdy many 10s from population, even if something will take over it will be for a while -> as more ppl will watch rating will go down.

How long is FMAB in the database ? Almost ten years ? Well that's almost ten years of boosting with alts, nothing can beat that.

Also "top spot on MAL" isn't something worth beating lol.

Probably never. Even if something tops it, it will just get downvoted from #1 by all the FMAB and Kimi no Na wa fan boys.

Why? Why? Why? Why?
why must we feel so insecure for our assumed (masterpiece)
Why?Why?Why?why?
why must we continue this obsession with something being on top
My soul burns from this
I feel so broken
why can't we all just get along
Why?Why?Why?Why?
why do I cry everytime chaos occurs?
Will this never heal??


^I think this might be my cringest comment ever

Oh and if you were wondering about my opinion on this post then just read what blarey and swagenator said and I agree with them.

you have a point. But many other Anime databases FMAB is 1-3 so I think its a very much America that loves FMAB. plus all my friends in IRL say there favorite Anime is either FMAB or Death Note but they don't watch much Anime.

one day it might happen but it is the anime that please the most people,so it is unlikely and it is also highly popular.

The only thing that recently got close was Steins;Gate 0. But that was because of the hype from the fans (including myself).. but it dropped relatively fast

A well funded One Piece or Berserk adaptation might definitely have a chance, though the prospect of either of those coming to fruition is...well... impossible :/

I doubt it ll happen any time soon but I personally hope it does because I don't think it is as good as its rating suggests.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

I don't see anything topping 9.25/10 unless it's a GREAT Berserk adaptation (which will never happen) or a second season of Hunter x Hunter (which will never happen as well).

Unless it's another BOOM movie like Your Name.

If they release a second season for HxH, assuming the manga is finished by Togashi, it might take over no 1 spot from FMAB. This is assuming the manga does finish and raises the bar in the upcoming arcs.

Steins;Gate and Hunter x Hunter can easily beat FMAB: Brotherhood IMO. if Hunter x Hunter Get a sequel maybe Hunter x Hunter will take the 1 spot.

That could do it I'm sure. Not only would it be really good but the hype would be insane.

From what I've seen of Hunter x Hunter so far, I might actually prefer it over FMA brotherhood. Steins;Gate is great too, maybe not as good as Hunter x Hunter or brotherhood in my opinion, but it's definitely up there

FMA 2003 is better and the only reason people hate it is because their is an adaptation that follows the manga. Not apparently it's not worth watching anymore because of that. It's funny too before brotherhood, FMA 03 had the highest score on this website or at least top 3. After 2009, now it has an 8.2 which is sad but whatever options I guess. Damn I'm ranting now.

Yes, but it quickly dropped to #2 where it's now staying, but it's still impressive how it's been holding that up.

2003 does the earlier parts of the story better, I'll agree with that. The point where the series diverges from the manga doesn't make it a bad show, it's still very good. Brotherhood is just better in my opinion.

FMAB is the number one on this site, and other sites.

It is a fantastic show overall with a complete ending, interesting plot and memorable characters.

So, I don't think that any show will knock it of the Number 1 spot.

Mathematically speaking, yes, because FMAB has not a perfect unbeatable 10.00 score...there is still a 0.75 point gap from its score and the maximum attainable score. Eventually, in the near or distant or very distant future, something will appear that will fall within that gap.

I guess you're right, people who don't watch a lot of anime tend to rate those shows higher, but do they even use sites like MAL? I didn't.
I started using MAL when I had already seen around 800 episodes.

Not for now. You'll have to wait for another big TV adventure, who can rake large enough and has a chance to be multi-broadcasted throughout various countries. And who lacks as much as possible "japanese dumb tihngs".

Now no one anime could beat Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood that has ever existed. Hell, it’s so quite literally the best anime series with no.1 on MAL in the history of history for me. Last year, Your Name is also the best anime movie and it's so my favorite anime of all time I even know how that is possible. Now I could understand that FMAB is one of the best anime of all time. In my opinion, nothing anime could beat FMAB a least 2 years or after on MAL. This is because how popular anime is.

I'm sorry that my grammar may be nazi.

Yea I also don't think Gintama deserves the top spot. And we probably have to accept that FMAB ll be up there for a while it doesn't mean I have to like it ;)

The ratings on MAL are unreliable anyway, one of the most iconic animé hangs in the 7's. The best series are usually in the mid 7's to early 8's

I thunk code geass and steins gate are better but i think that the only way an anime can surpass FMAB it's by getting a HUGE hype train anime original series

I don't think MAL ratings are totally unreliable. If we look other rating websites too, there's always 3 anime in TOP 3: FMAB, Steins;Gate and Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu. Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu has 6th place because of downvoters and Kimi no Na wa is overrated on MAL but other things are mostly reliable.

MAL is a bit reliable on the scores, but not that much. Gintama is the perfect example that it's more about the fandom. If I had to nitpick, then even FMAB is a example that MAL isn't that much trustful (as much as it's a great show, it has a lot of mistakes that can't be ignored, and I would never consider my favorite show of all time)

I have a feeling that Mob Phycho 100 could have come close if it was made as a full adaptation too. And I doubt FMAB would have reached the top if it was split into seasons, the fact it's not only a good story but the story with an end and a satisfying one, plays a huge role too. Kimi no nawa, Steins gate are also like that (you can ignore sg0), there are a lot of sequels in the top list but it would actually feel weird to have a certain part of anime at the first spot. I understand that sequels are watched by those who are already a fan of the show but still, the common question of anyone looking at such top would be why this particular part and not the other? So I doubt anything will take over it with the trend of splitting anime into seasons and cours. It's not a bad thing from viewing and production perspective at all but it does affect how the scores are distributed over the whole story. Also FMAB had 10 years to form its fanbase and the amount of people who watched it matters too.
