I just have finished watching the 8th episode of the anime and came here right away. I was seriously shocked to see the first review giving the anime 1, whilst I think that I can give the show 11 without even thinking.

Does people not understand the charm of the main character, and how awesome the concept and approach were in mixing Science (mainly chemistry) into the anime? Or it is just that they don't understand it, or hate school matters or whatever.

I hope people reconsider their reviews and at least finish half of the show before judging it badly.


Helpful reviews need to be marked as "helpful"

Obviously it's unjustified, but Kahru has made a lot of reviews and people hate on popular shows. Pro tip: never read reviews as most of the time they're completely useless unless you watch the show yourself.

I just finished watching episode 8 and also happens to see such low rating review to be in the top reviews. I didn't read everything tho, maybe he just didn't like the MC or find the concept boring to him, either way just let them score whatever they want and I kinda agree with this guy

Not 1, but at least in my opinion, around those digits. I agree with everything the reviews say nonetheless.

I never agree with 1 rated reviews, never! Maybe a few points here and there but I believe such reviews are incredibly biased so it’s a no from me.

I don’t believe there’s any show deserving that 1 rated treatment, or maybe I just haven’t seen such an abysmal show yet.

I wouldn’t take a review from Karin overly seriously (great guy though). It’s best to just stay far away from mal reviews. Really fucking far away.

Personally I like Dr Stone, and I think some of the reasons people dislike are pretty stupid. For example people complaining about bullshit in the science involved with the series sound like they’ve never watched a shounen anime before. Anyway I don’t really care how people rate certain anime as long as they give genuine reasons that they think that way
You’re not an elitist, you just think you are because you wanna be special.

I would say its justified, its maybe objectively not a 1 but if he gets no enjoyment out of it.

I just find it funny that people say "OHHHH unjustified...." but almost never question a 10, If its the most upvoted review.

I would not rate this show a 1, but again, everyone is different. Besides, there are many good shows whose rating doesn't match. You really need to stop caring about ratings. Some people like it, some won't.

If you like DR Stone, enjoy it and don't even bother reading reviews.

Mostly because the average score is closer to 10 and not 1. If average MAL scores were around 4 and someone scored it a 1 it would not cause a big deal, but if it were scored a 10 it would be barraged with hate. That and a 1 is either a biased score or a BS score since the only shows that deserve a 1 have to be purposefully trying to make complete trash.

Half of them are trolls and half the kind of people who cannot bear to watch majority enjoy a good anime. The criticism they give is the worst i have heard, They just nitpick the comedy scenes and how it's "unrealistic".

Yea many people use the rating system the "wrong" way or at least not the way its supposed to be, a 5 should be average so a "decent" show but there are so many people thinking a 5 is a bad score and that is simply not true.

But i disagree a show can be a 1 if its just a very very bad show that i also did not enjoy, 1 is basicially a 9 just the other way around, so i think its a score that should be given to shows that are simply extremely bad, similar to a 9 wich is for the extremely good ones (10 is for the really special ones with a equivalent of a 0 wich does not exist on MAL).
Some 1 shows maybe have some monior decent points but they cant outweigh the bad ones, similar to a 9 wich has some flaws but they get outweigh by the positives.

i m the kind of guy who would put 1 on bad anime, but dr stone has pretty good animation, very good music and the plot is really original. Even if you don t like it and think it s very childish, it deserves at least 5 for the quality

Just upvote the reviews with good marks so the harsh one disappear

I was thinking along those lines for the first bunch of episodes, which were when these reviews were posted. I didn't think the show was good prior to episode 7, but even back then I could see that a 1 is an absurd rating for a show that at least tries something unique - pretty clear bait.

Since Senkuu met the village people and Taiju left the series (for now) has personally become a lot more enjoyable. If it keeps up being good then we can hope that the reviews for the full series will be better than the preliminary reviews.

Regardless, the anime's average score is still above 8, so it's not being received that badly by the wider audience. I don't see too much of a reason to worry that a troll's preliminary review got pushed to the top by other sewer-dwelling trolls.

Troll reviews will always appear in various amounts, so I wouldn't be surprised by seeing them. What surprised me is the fact a lot of people marked Karhu's review as "Helpful". I understand somebody can have other than mine opinion on something and can present arguments to support his/her point of view, but come on... Giving the lowest possible score to "Dr. Stone"? Really? A score that indicates how a show is an utterly failure in every possible way? "Dr. Stone" is not even close to that if we look at it objectively.

He knows exactly what he is doing. He gets his review up as soon as possible with an extreme rating to get fanboys or haters something to latch onto while the iron is hot. It's a simple exploitation of the fact that the "unhelpful" button was removed. Uninformative shitposts like that would be downvoted otherwise.

The review below his by Pragyan1 is how a critical review should be.

People find the score foolish but that isn't even the issue. The actual review is terrible. It's not even a review, it's just an attack/hit piece on a show with unfunny jokes/memes mixed in. (IE: a shitpost)

It's kinda amazing how his review actually became the top reviews for "Dr. Stone", that probably says more about this forum than himself.


"Dr. Stone" probably made a great punching bag for troll reviewer since it's:

1. Trending
2. Shounen

This is the worst phase MAL has ever been. Ever since these wannabe Polyphemus like Karhu & Cringeyman started spamming all seasonals with 1/10 rating reviews just for sake of attention. I feel like the site will never be same

Guess you can't please everyone, and if you can't please the ones that didn't like your work... They will write bad reviews to threaten that persons work... Kinda like those Yelp Food Reviewers that thinks their opinion matters that much... Humanity seems to be falling behind when it comes to that aspect... :3

When I decided to watch Dr. Stone randomly since some of my friends told me it was good... Don't remember who told me, after I watched Episode 1 I got hooked! XD
It just became better and I can't wait for the future episodes! XD

People hated Black Clover too in the start and Boruto as well... Since people expected too much of them and gave them an unjustified hate... Well I mainly did it too but you gotta give some things another chance. :3

But I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion :3



This is my reaction when I read the Dr. Stone Reviews and sees the scores they are given. XD

Well... there are some shows that deserve 1/10. You should check MAL's top 100 worst rated shows sometimes, it's a fun ride: https://myanimelist.net/anime.php?q=&type=0&score=1&status=0&p=0&r=0&sm=0&sd=0&sy=0&em=0&ed=0&ey=0&c[0]=a&c[1]=b&c[2]=c&c[3]=f&gx=0&o=3&w=1&o=3&w=2

The double standards of users on this site when it comes to scores shows how simple-minded they are as to how art can be perceived. It's funny how they don't have a problem with people rating something a 10 or 9, but when it's a 1 they do.

It's ignorant to think that art should be perceived only objectively because that is simply not true. For example, a series can have great animation, art, sound... But if the characters and plot are bad, then it can easily reduce the enjoyment to 0 - A lot of people rate art based on their enjoyment.

But then again, if you're mad about the ratings that people give to a show, then you're just taking that as a personal insult, you're butthurt over it, because otherwise, you wouldn't care. You wouldn't have made this thread in the first place.

It's pathetic how a lot of users on this site have this mindset.

im not sure, normally controversial users attract toxicity and they will fight back or become toxic themselves hence my comparison with him to TAS but we will see in the long run

True.
So far, I have not watched a series that would be so weak that it deserved to one.
Imo, most of the lowest ratings are unreasonable

reviews are pretty useless if you haven't watched it yourself
especially when it comes to popular productions, "generic" and etc.
and about the criticism, no, I don't think it's justifiable, people are overanalyzing a show that should be "just entertainment" with the same criteria they analyze 2001 A Space Odyssey and so on
