'Looks at the good score'

Here we go again..

1. For the people who are going to make the threads like 'I don't get why the score is so high' OR the famous one 'What's with the score?!'

It is high because more people gave it a good score and more people liked it.
Think it as the score of the first episode not for the whole series


2. 'Am I missing something?' OR 'Can someone explain why do people like this?'

It's their taste or probably most of them have read the manga and they know that it is probably going to get better and are scoring on the basis of that..


I hope I helped and cleared many questions

I kind of wish you named this thread "Why is the score so high" to prevent this forum to have one of those conversations spawn and then get locked by a mod due to the off topic conversations it will inevitably spawn.

Also, say what you said louder for the people in the back.

It's always people who like the source material rating it. The first episode was typical anime until the last few minutes where it got really interesting. Will this be good? Probably. Does it deserve any rating never mind a top 40 after one episode? No.

Yeah, that feels weird. Basically, any seasonal anime can jump to top 50 with just one episode. Talk about common sense.
No wonder people complain about scores. I mean, that make them meaningless.

Don't pay attention to an anime score that is still airing, especially if there's only a few episodes out or it came out recently



I'm obviously caring about an anime score and since I began to follow seasonal animes in 2018, I watch every anime that's scored at least 8 because it means people like it and it might be a good show to watch

And yet I've never been disappointed, I know I discovered only like 5 animes with this method but I enjoy(ed) all of them


Some people on MAL just love complaining and whining about everything ~

Nothing deserves a "score" after the first episode. It'll gradually go down but people tend to give out scores when they feel like it. I like to score the shows once at the halfway mark and then after. If I'd have to score this show now I'd probably give it a 9 because I know how good the first arc is gonna be

The score is good because because more people liked the first episode.

It would be awesome of this show can get a 9 score because i'm currently reading the manga and if they do it well then there's no show that deserves it more.

Exactly. I mean, is there ANY anime that deserves to be ranked so high after just one episode? It should go without saying that ratings based on the first episode = ratings for the first episode. The score is bound to settle to its "deserved" spot after the show finishes anyway.

I actually like that people rate shows from early episodes on. A good score may pique my interest for a show I wasn't planning to watch at first, and that way I won't be missing out on a potential gem as it airs.

Just think of it as the score for the first episode.

Not like it was anything special. Just a simple introduction.
I could understand this score if the first episode was actually WOW, like in Megalo Box case. But here? Hell no.

megalo box's first ep was everything but wow
and 20k people rated the manga while 5K rated the anime so it is fair to assume that at least half of those 5K are manga readers that know what will happen later

Dunno, man. It had that oldschool vibe. And it looked like something different, compared to average seasonal anime. I could totally get why folks get hyped.
But giving 9-10 to another generic isekai/shounen is something I don't get. Welp, that's probably manga readers/new accounts mostly, but still.

This isn't even an isekai. Isekai involves a character being reincarnated or summoned into another world which isn't the case here. Also how do you know if this is a generic shounen from just one episode. While the anime made the twist pretty predictable, it actually came completely out of nowhere in the manga. The anime probably didn't want to make a huge secret that sth was wrong while the manga was trying to surprise the readers. If Cloverworks doesn't give too much hints for the next mysteries, they should be really hard to predict or even unpredictable.

As a manga reader this is one of the most original shounen in recent years. While it has some similarities to already existing shounen, especially Death Note and Attack on Titan, the setting apart from the orphanage is pretty unique. While the setting looks similar to that of Attack on Titan at first glance, it is still very different in execution.

Also, I don't remember another shounen anime or manga with an escape plot as the main premise. If you google "escape plot shounen manga", the first thing you will find is the wikipedia article of The Promised Neverland.

It's a perfectly fine series, but it's no masterpiece.

I don't get why people write reviews only an EP in. I feel like so many shows of 2018-2019 have been overhyped...

Though EP 1 was definitely top tier in setting mood and soundtrack.

Nah, I meant in general.
Sorry for the confusion.

Plot is irrelevant, since it's shounen. You can compare it to Kuroko no Basket, for an instance. It's sport anime but it has dumb shounen mechanics.
Anyway, I'm not saying it's true for this show. I'm just expecting it to be considerably less impressive as manga readers tend to overvalue much.
But, uhh, we'll see. First episode was quite good but it's still pretty far from warranting that score.

Oh, ok, then I'm sorry for misunderstanding.

It has a few shounen elements, but I would say it has less than most other shounen. I think the most shounen thing in this series is how Emma wants to save everyone, which you already know. I think the shounen protagonist that Emma is the most similar to personality wise is Gon from HxH. At least, I see people comparing them a lot. Though it isn't really noticeable early into the story. People even wanted Gon's voice actress to voice Emma.

I agree it doesn't deserve the score, but it's probably the usual that manga readers are hyped up for what's going to happen. This series has a very strong first arc and a lot of really well written twists early on. So people are exited because the first twist was already incredibly well adapted. I'm counting myself as well. If the whole season has this kind of quality, it will probably be a masterpiece imo. Sadly, the quality of the manga drops after the first arc (though it's still good). But the first season will only cover the first arc anyways.

People are rating on the basis of manga.
It was an introduction but also a pretty good one. Of course Megalo box had a better one but still it was good.
