Despite Funimation dropping Ishozuku Reviewers for “falling outside company standards”( Hyperlink, click for the previous news if you’re not sure what occurred previously )
Ishozku Reviewers has become the 2nd highest rated anime on My Anime List. The #1 spot still held by Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.

That goodwill has been destroyed.
