"Sousou no Frieren" (Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End) has achieved a remarkable milestone by holding the top spot on MyAnimeList's overall rankings for two consecutive months. This feat is noteworthy as it bucks the trend of series being swiftly overtaken by fierce competition on the platform.

The compelling narrative and stellar execution of "Sousou no Frieren" have resonated with audiences, as reflected in its consistent high scores on MyAnimeList. Despite some detractors' attempts to sway the ratings, the series has successfully withstood these challenges, underscoring its popularity and quality.

Sousou no Frieren

It's fascinating to observe the reaction from fans of the traditionally dominant "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood." While there have been efforts to impact "Sousou no Frieren's" score, statistics show that perfect ratings have significantly bolstered the series' standing at the pinnacle.

The burning question remains whether "Sousou no Frieren" will continue to hold its dominant position in the future. Fans eagerly await to see if the series can continue to defy expectations and establish itself as a lasting phenomenon in the competitive anime world. With the fan and critic community's spotlight on it, only time will tell how far "Sousou no Frieren" will go in the anime scene:

  • "Honestly, it deserves the acclaim; I adore this series."
  • "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood fanboys must be losing their minds."
  • "MyAnimeList ratings in 2024? Grow up, kids."
  • "The issue with these 'ratings' is they're always skewed by user volume. A 9.1 with 300k reviews isn't the same as a 9.1 with 3 million reviews. It has potential, but it's still far from truly competing."
  • "Fullmetal Alchemist fans won't let this continue."
  • "It's not that those series 'fall,' but they get review-bombed by those who take this ranking too seriously."
  • "I really appreciate Sousou no Frieren, but its current rating seems too high. For me, it's a clear 8 out of 10. That said, it's likely Fullmetal Alchemist will reclaim its spot because fanboys enjoy sabotaging other series."
  • "One Piece fans on Twitter and Fullmetal Alchemist fans on MyAnimeList are the worst of the internet."
  • "Oh look, the series has a bunch of 1 out of 10 ratings for some reason, how odd."
  • "It'll eventually fall; it's just the hype because it's currently airing."
  • "I don't think it'll last long because it's an overly simplistic anime. I stuck with it for the first four episodes and thought it was good, but now, not so much."
  • "More people will start watching the series, and the rating will adjust to reality, and obviously, Sousou no Frieren doesn't belong in the historical Top 5."

Final Thoughts

"Sousou no Frieren" has captured the hearts of many, sparking lively debates across the anime community. Its ability to maintain a top rating amidst such debates is a testament to its charm and the impact it has on its viewers. As the anime landscape continues to evolve, "Sousou no Frieren" stands as a beacon of excellence, inviting us to join in its journey and share our experiences with friends. Will it become a classic? Only time will tell, but for now, it reigns supreme.
