Granted, it was a great and enjoyable anime, but for it to be number one rated here, that would generally mean the majority of people consider it the single greatest anime ever made. Aside from that, what are your thoughts? I have rewatched this series twice now without tiring, but still cannot see it as the best anime of all time like the world does.

Not this again.

FMA:B is 100% legit best anime of all time. The majority says so, which means it's true.

Oh god, not again.There is nothing like a single best anime ever(except Inferno cop :D) which makes everyone feels the same way.

for ex:I think clannad is garbage and should be outside of top 3000 and yet you love it.

Nope, it's not the best, but it's definitely one of the better ones out there. There is no real 'best' anime I think, since everyone's taste differs in what they like or not, which makes it almost impossible to find an anime that is the best for everyone.

I couldn't really word the title better, but lets discuss. You do say it differs from person to person, but it is rated higher than any other anime on this site, which means almost 99% of the people here would think it's the best anime ever made, while a very small minority might think otherwise. So in that case, would it still not be enough to justify it as the best anime to the world?

Yeah but it isn't rated that much more than Gintama, steins;gate or clannad after story.
So their is place for a discussion which is the best.

The best anime IMO is High School DxD. Not joking.

Don't worry OP, the Top 10's change all the time. When I joined Gintama was No. 1 and when I finished watching FMA:B it took the spot. And rightfully so, damn straight.

If you're rampaging it , yeah I get why you get bored of something . I saw a part pf brotherhood on Animax but.....man it had atleast 5 episodes where you literally get bored and it felt like I was watching a different pair of characters in the same univers , it felt sooooo Chrno Crusade-esque.
But then again Steins ; Gate has about 7-8 episodes that test your nerves.

Lol no, that's not even close to what it means. I'd be surprised if even 10% of MAL thinks that.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Well only 4.2% of MAL gave it a 10 and 1.3% of MAL has it as a favorite. That's excluding the place in the favorites, some of those people could have it at the bottom of their favorites. So it's probably less than 1% that think it's the best anime ever.

To be the number one doesn't necessarily imply that most people consider it to be the best one, only that most people think it is great (and very few think it sucks). There might very well be anime with lower score that more people consider to be the best aime every, it only doesn't get so high score because a lot of people also consider it to be garbage.

(However I think the question valid, why is FMA Brotherhood so popular?)

Personally, I don't even think it's in the top 10. But that's subjective. I find both FMA and FMA:B to be completely boring to sit through. My wife loved both. I think it comes down to it being a show that is widely accepted as good as well as one that's been on Toonami/Adult Swim which puts it in the anime mainstream so it gets a lot more exposure than many other series do especially with people who have less anime watched under their belt to really compare it to.

That would be quite the big statement. The very best you could say would be something like ''for the most people FMA:B is the best Anime of all the time'' since being the best or not is a matter of taste, opinion.

But again..could happen that some other anime on top10 or not even there having 5,6,10% of MAL rating it as 10 and if that was to happen what i said above wouldn't be correct.

Is Steins;Gate the 3rd best anime of all time?Hell no.I still gave it a high score.
just because a lot of people give Brotherhood high score doesn't necessarily mean they think it's the best of all time.A lot of people watch Brotherhood and a lot of them end up enjoying it,it's one of the shows that could appeal to a lot of people (and it's well made enough to see why),that's all there is to it.

Now personally speaking,it's the best one I have seen yet.Best anime of all time?I haven't seen all anime ever released so I can't answer that.

Man... You guys are persistent on this for sure... I'll say it time and time again. There IS no "best" anime. The supposed "best" would HAVE to be an unanimous vote. There are ALWAYS people who disagree, who DON'T find it good.

I never trust rankings for a good reason. Most rankings are plagued by people who have very little experience in anime, and give the most biased of ratings.

Everyone knows the ratings are irrelevant. But what do you mean "plagued by people who have very little experience in anime"???


Well, what I mean is, as simple as it sounds, people who have very little experience about anime just throwing 10's around. Now, I'm not talking just a few people here. I say "plagued" because its practically contagious. If you've been into anime for a while, you should realise there is a pretty niche group out there, who watch nothing but what is presented to them. In other words, mainstream anime.

It's mostly these people who "plague" the systems. People who have seen so little anime that they CAN'T differentiate what is a "good" anime or a "bad" anime due to lack of experience. As a result, they would obviously give their favourites 10/10 no problem. Accounting for the sheer number of these people, the ratings are going to be affected pretty badly.

Sorry if my explanation is bad. My word choices are never really the best, so I apologise if that made me sound like some egoistic confrontational bastard.
