How did Attack on Titan fans slander One Piece Gear 5 episode?

Fandom wars aren’t new, and they can turn nasty pretty fast. There are plenty of cases of fanbases going head to head to destroy a show’s reputation, including review bombing a series to lower its IMDb and MyanimeList scores.

According to Sportsskeeda, a fan of Attack on Titan has reportedly created 300 Gmail accounts in order to give episode 1071 a rating of 1 out of 10 in order to lower the overall score of the episode. This has caused outrage among One Piece fans, who have accused the fan of being petty and jealous.

This alleged jealous and spiteful decision was made with the sole intent of destroying the legacy of Gear 5’s highly-anticipated transformation. It’s no wonder that many anime fans believe Gear 5 will be considered one of the best transformations in anime’s history and placed in the same category as Super Saiyan & Ultra Instinct.


One Piece fans claim that this is an intentional attempt by AACK01 to harass the One Piece community, which is against Twitter's rules and grounds for termination of his Twitter account. Therefore, they urge people to report AACK01’s account and teach him a lesson.

Meanwhile, many episodes of One Piece have been review bombarded by rival fans in the past, resulting in a drop in the overall rating. 


Has One Piece Gear 5 really crashed the internet?

The latest episode of One Piece 1071, has been getting rave reviews from fans all over the world. It's the first time we get to see Luffy's amazing Gear 5 transformation, and it's causing a huge amount of traffic on streaming platforms around the world.

In addition, episode 1071 of One Piece has become a trending topic on social media sites like Twitter and Reddit. Fans are enthralled by the quality of animation and by Luffy’s Gear 5. 

Crunchyroll, the world's biggest anime streaming site, had a major server outage when Gear 5 made its debut in episode 1071. It crashed before the episode even aired because so many people were waiting for Gear 5 to come out.

However, the fans of the rival anime series don’t think that the episode broke the internet.
