What's your opinion on FMA:B? And what's your opinion on MAL scores?
Im asking this because srly , altough FMA:B is one of my favorite anime , MAL scores are a complete joke .Currently OPM is like their 10th best ranked anime , i still havent watched it but i assume OPM is the most overated anime of the year(or maybe ever). Another example would be Lain , a masterpiece but its score is the same as Bleach , fucking Bleach , it actually makes want to drink bleach and kill myself . I cant even imagine the day SnK s2 starts ...

What are you implying?

Anyway, FMA:B is my favorite shonen series, but MAL scores aren't supposed to be taken seriously.
>>
Its a good show vastly overrated because its more western than most anime and has a likable male main character newfags can relate/self-insert into.
Same thing with Cowboy Bebop.

MAL scores are bogus and only shows popularity, not quality.

well what should define as quality then?
>>
FMA:B is a really good anime, not the GOAT like MAL and WatchMojo seem to think however. For all the criticism MAL gets, if you ignore the reviews its actually a good way to find a new show.

I'm curious for SnK S2 as I actually thought the first season was okay before Eren and Annie were titans. I stopped reading the Manga when it was revealed everyone was a titan and there was a new world order conspiracy shit so I'm curious if it'll still get praised.
>>
MAL scores are something to use as a guideline if you're unsure about the quality of a show. If it has under a 7 it's probably trash, otherwise it's probably safe to watch.
>>
FMA:B is my go-to recommendation when someone wants to get into anime. It's a solid show that hits all the basics like character development and plot, it's pretty relatable from a western perspective, it touches on a wide range of genres from horror to fantasy adventure to romance, and it's a gradual introduction to anime's weirdness.
>>
>>134873759
Well not MAL standards that's for sure.
>>
FMA:B is really good, one of the best entry level shows out there, and MAL scores are pointless. It's another of those systems where the average review score is above 7 and anything below it is either niche or trash. For the highest scores it's just a popularity contest to see which show can generate the most hype so that people review it before they can think about it.
>>
>>134873759
Quality's fluid to some extent, but it's distinct from liking a show.
For example, I liked watching Nisekoi. It's a shitty show where nothing happens and the plot goes nowhere.
The fact that I liked watching it does not mean it's a quality show, it means I have shit taste in anime.

>MAL top anime list
>Numbers 3 to 173 are all Gintama

I only use MAL to keep track of my own list and find some new anime to watch from time to time. Don't really care about the score unless it has lower than a 6, then there's probably something inherently wrong with it.
>>
>>134873759
I'd use TTGL as an example of a popular but not quality anime. Its popular because its entertaining and has likeable characters but some of the bullshit they pull in the show is so bad its almost a parody.
>>
>>134874560
If something has such a low score it's probably funny because it's so bad.

10/10 you made me hear it.
