During today’s opening hours, the live-action series based on the iconic manga by Eiichiro Oda, one piece. Although the premiere was highly anticipated by the fans, this also meant that it was received with mixed reviews, which is derived from the participation of anti-fans on specialized review sites.
But before you continue, you must concept the review-bombingWhat is it a practice where a group of thousands of users coordinate to go to review sites and rate a series, movie or even a video game adding scores of zeros and ones. This is a technique of the most toxic fans and sworn enemies of certain franchises, or even the fandom itself.
And that is exactly what is happening with the One Piece live action serieswhich was already at this time when this article was written IMDb rating of 8.8 points, but that is going up and down every hour. These constant changes result from revision-bombing, as if we revise the breakdown of the rankings, we see that the graph is skewed towards two numbers: 10 and 1.
It is wrong to apply maximum and minimum rating indiscriminately. Although these sites want to encourage users to rate the series and movies objectively, in the end there are cases like this where “They only put 10 on it because they like One Piece” or, conversely, “they only put 1 because they don’t like One Piece“. In the end, neither side has sufficient justification for the rating they give.
And about the review-bombing, because IMDb has some controversial controls. This effect was recently applied to the live-action “The Little Mermaid”, which was criticized by critics for casting a girl of color in the lead role. The rating system shows an average rating of 4.9 points, but this is not what is shown on IMDb. An average rating of 7.2 points is listed on the site, which the site claims is “the actual rating, after excluding bots.”
However, for IMDb to accept a rating of this quality there must be a “true bombardment of reviews”, so large that it cannot be ignored. With this in mind, it will be necessary to review whether the anti-fans of One Piece are really “as many as you think” in order to rate the live action that falls to the ground.
And speaking of live action, it is already available in the Netflix catalog even with the promised Japanese dubbing. The series lasts for eight one-hour programs and has the approval of the author Eiichiro Oda, who was also involved as a project supervisor. It should be noted that according to previous statements, it is planned to continue the production of this project to cover more story arcs of the popular One Piece manga.
