Not really. The beggining was just ok in terms of storytelling and there was too many jokes. Things just start to get really great after Hughes death. But I guess it only made me think that it could be one of the best anime of all time on the last arc. Until then it was a great experience, but nothing extremely out of this world. But I will say that it is on my top 5 (maybe on my top 3)

Nope.

Like most of the Anime in MAL's Top 100, it's heavily overrated.

objectivity in anime is a lie.

there is only subjectivity.

through this subjectivity i gain strength

through strength i gain power.

through power i gain victory

through victory my chains are broken.

anime shall set me free.

Well it all depends on personal tastes , It's not even in my Top 50 but I'm fine with it being #1 . I'd say it's good enough to not make complain about it being #1 . I can understand why people regards it so highly , so although I personally don't agree I do respect it .

it's a rather amusing joke how this will get from an Objective Analysis of Full metal alchemist writing to a Subjective and Personal satisfaction/rating to a show but, that's humanity.

Being the highest rated doesn't make it everyone's favorite anime. That just means that the various elements within the show were all top notch in their presentation. In other words, it being the highest rated is from an objective viewpoint, not a subjective one. So, no. I don't agree that FMAB is the best anime ever.

Its one of those nicest or 'best series' out there, but not the 'best series ever'. But its a subjective matter after all.

hell no, FMAB is horrible overrated, its mediocre at best. Its just another shounen with all the shounen problems. The only thing going for it is its not 500 episodes long. Though the beginning is already reliyng on the original FMA, its way too rushed and never gets good.

It kinda blews my mind that its still on number 1 here, but its not like I expect decent taste from MAL or anything b-baka!

I blame all the american teenagers who watched this 10 years ago and dont even know what anime is.

I've never really understood why it's rating is so high and other shows with ratings that are like 8.3(which is still really good) for what seems like minuscule reasons as to why some raters didn't give said 'shows' a 9 or a 10

that being said its a good/decent show but I dont think its the best by a long shot but one of the most complete shounens that doesn't have 300+ plus episodes

Hell no. It is not the best anime ever. The reason for it being #1 is because of its sheer popularity. Otherwise, it would not have the publicity to receive such high ratings. It's kind of like Twilight—the show is actual garbage but was once immensely popular because the people who watched it turned a blind eye to its flaws, and we are all guilty of this to a certain extent.


I don't know man, if it's number 1 because of it's popularity, shouldn't SAO, AoT, Dragon Ball, and the like have scores as high, if not higher, then Brotherhood? I do agree popularity has something to do with it being that high, but it's also that because it was a really good show. The story, tho it did have some hiccups along the way (especially towards the end), was overall really good along with the characters, animation, soundtrack/song choices, and voice acting, both dubbed and subbed. All I'm saying is an anime can't make it that high without doing something right. It's not my all time favorite, but it was one of the best shonens I've seen. Everyone has their opinions though.


Do-do-donuts, let’s go nuts!

Thinking the show is less than great is perfectly fine. But I won't buy any talk of it being "just an average shounen." There clearly is a whole lot more on offer than being a shounen.

There isn't a best anime ever in the same vein that isn't a best movie ever, a best video game ever or a best book ever, it all comes to what one person likes.

One of the best anime's (IMO), Its all subjective though you got people who thinks its the best ever, some think that it's overrated or bad, some that think its good but not great. It's all subjective opinion.

May the higher being witness for I have predicted this atrocity

But no, there isn't anything as a Perfect Show, even if there were to be a perfect show hypothetically in the moment, it will be outdated in another

Imagine telling future kids to watch 2 dimensional story in a 2 dimensional display, insane!.

Long story short, there must be a flaw there or there, so all shows are either from barely flawed, flawed, so flawed, brokenly flawed as a bonus, the last one is a joke.

Full metal alchemist writing wise would be in-between barely flawed and flawed because the ending, the broken science, filler, generic and cheap voice acting for some characters and ed height joke that spawns every 5 moments.

I'm not gonna say it's literally "the best" as that's a pretty bold statement, but it'll probably always be my personal favorite. That could be for a number of reasons though, such as when I watched it or how it made me feel at that time.

To call it the best ever I'd have to watch literally every other anime first.

The original FMA was the very first anime I ever completed so that and Brotherhood are pretty special to me, but I wouldn't call either the best I've seen.

MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ON MAL AS WELL AS IMDB GAVE IT A 10 AND THATS WHY IT IS ON TOP SO NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE THINK IT IS NOT #1 IT DOESNT MATTER BECAUSE THEY ARE IN MINORITY AND THAT BOOST ACCOUNT BULLSHIT IS APPLICABLE TO EACH AND EVERY ANIME OUT THERE AO ITS OUT OF QUESTION, THERE ARE BETTER ANIMES OUT THERE? SO WHY ARE THOSE SHITTY ANIMES NOT #1? HERE ON INTERNET MAJORITY RULES AND YOUR OPINION DOESNT MATTER IF YOU ARE A FMAB HATER, YOU HAVE SHIT TASTE!

So youre saying that if people dont like FMAB they have shit taste ?
if 9/10 people like a thing and 1 doesnt then automatically that 1 person, the odd one is considered to have shit taste no matter if its taste is superior to the other 9. Take yosuga no sora for example, people who like it are not seen as better taste holders but they are the ones who truly understand what the anime is. So i am juat saying fmab haters are the odd ones thus "shit taste"

There is no best anime (obviously) but I'm perfectly content with it occupying the first place, it is a fine anime and I would rather it keep the first spot forever lest something shit should take its place.

but nobody thinks that Twilight is good, at most like 500 fangirls. While millions of people love FMAB.

Taste is subjective. Nothing can be objectively called the greatest anime.

Okay, I think Steins;Gate is way better........Fmab is #8 on my list and S;G is #1. For me there are 8 shows better than Fmab. This is my opinion though....but I think most people will agree with me on Steins;Gate. s;g takes time to start, but when it does, it really DOES!!!! fmab is instantly knocked out....

It's a great well rounded show but it's pacing is way too slow for me to even consider it as a contender for the best anime ever. It's probably in my top ten though.

IMO reason for its place in ranking isn't because it's that good, but because everyone likes it at least a bit. Being universally good saves it from low scores that more niche anime get naturally.

It's close enough to be the best anime ever and it is still better than a lot of the monotonous anime of its demographic. Shounen is garbage, but Fullmetal Alchemist is generally beyond that.
