IMDb, a popular site for news and film profiles, is being overrun by hordes of RWBY fans. They are attempting to boost ratings by slapping 10/10’s on RWBY Volumes 7 and 8, as well as the recent release of ‘Justice League x RWBY’ Part 1. It was a campaign being run on Twitter over fears that they were being review bombed by haters.
We have made some strange discoveries on the internet as ‘Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen: Part 1’ on IMDb currently has a rating of 5.5. At the time of writing, however, over half of the user ratings on that page were at the maximum rating of 10, totaling 555 votes and counting.
There have been only a few reviews of the film, praising it for its action and kid-friendly antics with the teenage versions of our favourite comic book heroes that range from popular mainstays like Batman to obscure no-names like that Superman fellow. However, there aren’t even enough reviews to reveal any sort of rating for the film on Rotten Tomatoes.
On the one hand, people are finally waking up, realising if they don’t leave reviews on the show and the movie, Volume 10 might not happen and no one else will ever learn about the show. Unfortunately, our sources claim that when critics of professional critique outlets were told about writing reviews for the film, they answered with a valid question: ‘What is a… Roohwbye… Rahwby… RWBY?’
Elsewhere on IMDb, Volumes 7 and 8 of RWBY are being bombed with both negative and positive ratings, as both of them are currently sitting between their overall ratings of 5 to 7.
From what it appears for the seasons that released over two years ago is that they are being turned into battlegrounds where 0’s and 10’s fight to the bitter death. So far, the fans are really showing that they’re tearing through sites like swarms of locusts eating everything, including their lovers.
There is currently no page for Volume 9 as of yet, but our experts believe that it would receive over 500 ratings of 10’s, along with user reviews saying ‘It’s not suicide! Stop crying!’.
It could well be that a hate campaign was launched against the show, prompting fans to litter it with love in a counterattack. The power of bees and tea-sipping heroine really does try to compel those fed up with their holiday photos from over eight volumes. But it may not be the case as according to Twitter, one user cried for support to boost their ratings in order to get Volume 10 greenlit.
This led RWBY fans on Twitter to review bomb the titles on IMDb in order to boost their ratings. Unfortunately for them, no amount of 10 ratings is enough to put such titles back above 8, possibly due to IMDb’s system of nulling review bombs.
Maybe the admins of this place are so sick and tired of a pile of one-sided ratings that they have decided to install a spam filter to wipe those zealots out. Even so, they couldn’t tell a difference between a 10/10 user review and an actual spam message advertising free episodes of RWBY Volume 9 online.
But that wasn’t all, as the tag #GREENLIGHTVOLUME10 has been used to display not only support for the main show to warrant their tenth volume but also present every trace of evidence that it is actually popular.
It shows that fans are doing everything to make sure that Volume 10 gets greenlit as soon as possible. That would go as far as bringing pitchforks and torches to shame every person who criticises the show as ‘haters’. Even though it may take months, even years, before it finally arrives on Crunchyroll, assuming Rooster Teeth holds themselves in for that long.
As one fan proclaims on Twitter before having her account closed, “WE MUST SAVE RWBY! NO OTHER SHOW HAS ALL THE FIGHTING LESBIANS AS MAIN CHARACTERS, AND WE SEE THEM STOPPING THAT HERF TOWARDS THE VERY END!!!1! #GREENLIGHTVOLUME10”.
Although not confirmed as of now, there are currently rumours that a gang of overzealous fans are planning to break into homes of haters and fill them with bees. Beehive resellers have been told to watch for any suspicious people walking by.
