Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Topple Infamous Fullmetal Alchemist Record

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War has brought its latest series to an end, and it won't be long before the manga moves into its final act. The rom-com is living its best life thanks to a lift in popularity, and it is bigger this season than ever before. And following its latest finale, Kaguya-sama just snagged a surprising title from Fullmetal Alchemist's latest anime.

The update comes from the team at My Anime List, one of the top sites stateside to track anime rankings and reviews. It is there fans can vote for the industry's best series, and for years now, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood has reigned at the top spot with a 9.14 ranking. But now, Kaguya-sama has taken the top spot.

As you can see above, the rom-com is now ranked in first place with a score of 9.17. It seems like the show has pulled in a number of fans since its latest premiere, and the franchise has more than half a million followers on MAL. However, netizens suspect Fullmetal Alchemist will reclaim the top spot before long. After all, the show's fandom is notoriously protective of its first-place ranking, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood has nearly three million followers on MAL.
