On January 9, the first episode of the second part of the anime was finally aired Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season (Attack on Titan). The excitement of the fans was immediate, temporarily disabling the servers of the services of Funimation and for a longer time those of Crunchyroll (confirming that although this situation has been repeated in the past, they have not done much to resolve it). But while most were enjoying the premiere, others were waiting to sabotage it in any way possible.
Thus, in the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) You can find the list of the episode with an average rating of 9.0 out of 10.0 points, but when reviewing the ratings you can see a number of ratings of “1.0 points”, the minimum possible. the peculiar imbalance makes it clear that it was a “review-bombing“, Which is defined as the action of negatively reviewing a product to sabotage its social image or, in other cases, as a protest against a decision (as happened recently with Genshin Impact on the Play Store).
Who encouraged the review-bombing? In accordance with Anime Senpai, it all goes back to a Twitter account of a fan of One Piece, who shared some screenshots showing the results and typing: «Despite the negligence of some individuals, the numbers are good and the result is very satisfactory. This is what awaits every anime that thinks it can compete with One Piece. What we have used does not exceed 10% of our forces, and see for yourself the extent of our impact, the next one will be greater», Wrote the user in your publication. Of course, the answers are closed only to the people you follow, to avoid criticism.
The reactions have been mixed, highlighting:
- «Average One Piece fan in sight».
- «Grow out of your immaturity as the worst fandom ever. Stupidity at its best».
- «This guy asked One Piece fans to leave bad reviews on IMDb for the first episode of Shingeki no Kyojin. Get a life!».
- «I admit that the One Piece manga far surpasses that of Shingeki no Kyojin, but in terms of anime it comes out losing by a lot. There is not point of comparation».
- «The One Piece fandom is made up of 30-year-old virgins who hate to admit they’ve spent more than half their lives watching it.».
