I'm not entirely sure how well this thread is going to be received. I sent a message to Crunchyroll themselves, but I don't know if they'll even see the message, so I'll try on the forums.

I haven't been online in a while, and decided to check out some anime, well I looked at 'Rozen Maiden Zurückspulen' and was shocked to see that the anime had been voted down so drastically! I mean it has 1.9 out of 5 stars right now! A whole string of haters have come onto the site, and gave this show nothing, but a string of 1 star votes! It amazed me so much, but I started seeing a strange pattern, and I'm wondering if I'm the only one who's seen this.

Here is why I think this string of reviews is fake.

1. Long paragraphs of hate.

Most of these reviews are paragraphs long!

2. This many haters?

What really surprised me was the amount of haters that voted this anime 1 star, but the fact that someone actually gave this show 5 stars in the middle of all this, made me think something strange was going on.

3. Most have done nothing else on CR.

Some of these accounts have avatars, some have written other reviews, but most of these accounts have done nothing else! They haven't earned any more points, they haven't done anything! It was like they were inspired to join CR just to bash this show.

4. Rozen Maiden Zurückspulen is a cartoon?

The same 1 star voters also started calling this show a cartoon. Now people have been calling this show a ton of things, I just think it's strange that these people would pick up on the cartoon bit. I mean you would really have to restrict the reviews you've read about this show, to this website, and those reviewers.

5. Accounts and critiques were made the same day, or one day before/after.

This is the biggest hint that something strange was going on. First off if you look at the date of the critiques and the date the accounts were created, most of them were created the same day, or one day later.

That's the biggest bunch of sock puppet accounts I've ever seen.

So after glancing over a couple of the reviews here is what my theory is. Someone who loves the old Rozen Maiden can't handle the fact that the remake exists.Therefore this person made multiple accounts(or it is a group of people) in order to bash something know I don't even know. Whether the remake is better than the original I do not know. I'm currently watching the original and it's okay so far. I do plan to watch the remake not to long after as well. To further my theory quite a few I looked at reviewed both the original and the remake. They give the original a perfect score, while the fake is 1 star. So I'm with you that those reviews seem very fishy. Though it's quite humorous as someone or some people would go to all that trouble because a remake is possibly better than the original.
