I've seen it before, and chances are, you have as well. Personal attacks and insults directed at an user in his comment section duo to controversial reviews. Heck, they even comment on dead accounts, why would someone do that?

I sometimes do leave RIP or press F to pay respect to 'dead' reviewers, but I would never go out of my way to post insults at them. I don't understand what would anger someone to go and hate people for their opinions.

What do you think of this behavior? Have you come across it? Have you suffered from it? Share your views and experiences here!

Insulting a person over their views is inappropriate. Courteously letting the primate know his perception is as clouded as the Albion and his worldview is easily mistaken for a Swiss cheese, is appropriate... though better idea is to counter-argument whatever stupid claims you believe were made in the review.
THOUGH definitely appropriate for whoever does a "1" score reviews. Bail those neanderthals out of my platform.

Back in 2011 I made a review for samurai girls, it was a relatively short review but it wasn't controversial, it was just mediocre (I scored the show a 6 or 5). Animesnob came to my profile to insult me and laugh at me, I didn't respond to him. Years later my review had 8 helpfuls and 4 unhelpfuls, I deleted it because there were better reviews for samurai girls.

But when someone comes with arguments to combat your views on a certain anime you have to combat it. If he insults you, just leave him alone, he's just a fanboy.

I'm going to insult you OP! Why don't you have any comments on your profile? Why have you got a mean score of 10 rating anime? Why have you only listed two anime? Why is your signature a tiny box in the right hand corner? What are you? Are you even a real person? What is this?

I can assure you that I am a real person. Just go through my posted threads that go back to the mid of 2017, wow. I deleted them. That deserves the 10. Where is there a requirement to add everything you have seen to your animelist? Looks aesthetically pleasing. I'm what my username implies, an AkaneManiac! Used to be known by a different nick tho.

op why do you only have 2 anime and jojo part 5 listed, do you use other anilists ? Why do you have a cowboy bebop movie a anime and jojo part 5 specifically? Usually people that dont register their anime dont even add 1 anime to their list. Anyway i find insulting people for their opinion a stupid thing that shouldnt be done.

We live in a society


where some people can't handle other people's opinions, and those who're offended attack people for having "controversial" or different opinions.

It's no different to politics and public speakers, (especially in the US), so don't think too much on the hateful comments by the offended, as it's not important

It makes sense to insult some reviewers who are just writing the review to shit on anime for example shitting on yuri anime for being gay or a simple CGDCT anime for not being gay.
“The sound of the Gion Shoja temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things;
The color of the sala flowers reveals the truth that to flourish is to fall.
The proud do not endure, like a passing dream on a night in spring;
The mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.”

Some minor things from hurt fan boys. Couldn't care less about them

I have got more positive comments and pm from people liking me reviews! That means the world for me and easily weighs out the negative stuff

Some people have minor criticism and questions about my reviews! That is alright and i welcome it as long people dont behaving toxic towards my person!

And if I see a review that i really dont agree with, I rather make my own and take up the things I like about the anime but not attacking the other review or the person who made it!!

To fight with people over the internet is total meaningless, and noting im going to waste my time with!

Have you come across it?

Ah, yes.
Ut was when I reviewed SAO: Alicization's first 10 episodes (because it was supposed to be 52 episodes long but got split cour-d); the perfect time to review it too, because episode 10 especially showed that SAO did not improve in any way besides the animation.

When it reached the most "helpfuls", SAO fanboys started attacking me a lot. Extremely funny. I still have some comments from them on my profile.

The review got removed, sadly. It wasn't a standard review; I covered the show cronologically instead of listing "Art, Animation, Characters...".

I've had a few people throw bile at me, but I don't let it bother me--after all, I'm the Arbiter of Absolute Truth. I am always right, therefore they are always wrong.

This glorious signature was made by @Mayumi!

I am the Arbiter of Absolute Truth, and here is my wisdom:

"Having exquisite animation does not a good anime make.
Hating the classics doesn't make you smart--just contrarian.
There is nothing wrong with liking slice-of-life/iyashikei.
There is no 'Golden Age.' There is always top-shelf anime.
You should be watching both blue jacket Lupin III series."

That's a trick question, I would have to read reviews to even know if they want to make me insult somebody or not.

Yes the butthurt for Zergs Shelter review was legendary. It really brings out the best in the anime community if someone dares to say that a random cute girl is not enough for a 10/10.

Of course it this, do you know how many reviews take jabs at fans. It's all part of the flamewars everyone should participate in, if you don't I have to doubt how much of a true anime fan you are. Don't let boomers discourage you.

You should always insult someone over their reviews. Nothing makes a reviewer happier than to see people so absolutely butt blasted over the fact that someone has a different opinion than them.

The reviewer does not seek validation or converts, they seek antagonists. To rob them of this enjoy is the bane of a reviewer's existence.

Well, in these kind of cases I'm gonna say they are asking for it, as they intentionally antagonize the fanbase of the show that they are critiquing. If that is the case, then they deserve it, as their intentions are to go pick a fight rather than simply review the show.

No, as long as it isn't a personal attack or jab at the fanbase, I don't see it as an insult. It is left for the interpretation of the reader as how he wants to consider it.

so even exaggerations on reviews are fine then huh

welp the problem with that is reviews are meant to be read and can influence a lot of people so fake news stuff should be disrespected at least imo

Of course it's acceptable. Hostility is more fun and rewarding than people give it credit for, and, in the inverse, patience is a lot less rewarding than people act like.

Yes, I shall present myself as a nice person who is infinitely tolerant of all disagreements whenever expressing my opinions on something to earn the social approval of the people on an online anime forum! Woohoo!

A review is a way for a viewer to express his thoughts about something. It is a personal work, so he has all the right to put whatever he feels and thought of the series in there. The reader himself can take it at face value or to heart. They can do their own research or stop there and take the thoughts of someone else as their own. Either way, they have only themselves to blame.

I agree that having a balance is the best alternative imo. Too much of either is harmful.

That is just being a sellout, I'm not advertising that way of thought, wow. On the other hand, acting like a jackass and retard on the internet just because it lets you let steam off with no irl repercussions isn't much better either. Just sad, and kinda funny for me actually.

It actually is. It is their right to like and hate whatever they want... should the other person feel bad for some other random person insulting his favorite japanimation show on the internet? They can take it as a personal attack, but that would be silly. Now, if it is waifus/husbandos we are talking about, then yeah, that would be a personal attack directed at their loved one!

That is true.

It is horrible and immature. Attack the person personally instead of bringing up his wife, pls.

Nah, that is actually a pretty neat idea, kinda like Goodreads? That would be interesting. Will serve for more investment from the audience in reviews.

Don't really know if it's insulting someone, but when people is writning a bunch of crap that has nothing to do with the review I sometimes ask them if they are Okej or if I shoud call a doctor for them.

To make review shoud be something you are proud over, it's not a way to write a bunch of shit that has nothing to do with anime.

Some people really shoud get some help.

Well, you can't vote reviews "unhelpful" now, so the next best thing to do is tell the reviewer how much it sucked.
