I don't know if y'all haven't noticed, but the ratings on Boku no Hero Academia are completely covered with 5 star and 1 star reviews. Out of the 51 reviews (at this time) only ONE is a 4 star, 30 is 5 star, and 20 is 1 star.

After looking into it a bit, ALL of the 1 star reviews are done by 'people' that literately created their account the day they made the 1 star review.

Obviously, all these accounts are alt accounts someone's created to hate on the show, or bot accounts.

Can Crunchyroll do something about the malicious bot/troll/alt account reviews?

Yeah, but, its obviously malicious. Its dishonest and distorts the ratings of the series. Not only that, but I expect that the fake reviews will continue too.

Anyway, I wish Crunchyroll can do something about it, but they probably won't.

If it's great the haters won't be able to stop it. I like it a lot.

Since there were some developments today, I thought I would make a quick comment here.

I just had to remove ~90 reviews from accounts just made to spam the same 1 star review over and over. That in itself was pretty annoying, but worse than that was the 633 reports about it.

If you guys see something like this in the future, it is okay to just report a single review saying there is a lot of spam and we will clean it all up.
