Just like last week, there was one very definite story in the ratings – one series that definitely hasn’t settled down. I’ll leave you to take a look, and I’ll discuss it under the cut. There were other interesting fluctuations (especially Nobunaga no Chef), but they aren’t quite outside the standard range for those dramas.

The ratings presented here are from much more complete articles on TokyoHive – the latest one of which is available here. Since I’m only interested in tracking a few dramas, this article serves to summarize those numbers.

Prime Time Shows

Biblia Koshodo no Jiken Techo – (01) 14.3%, (02) 12.2%, (03) 12.0%, (04) 11.6%, (05) 11.5%, (06) 11.7%

Last Hope – (01) 14.2%, (02) 11.9%, (03) 11.4%, (04) 11.9%, (05) 11.6%, (06) 10.4%

Nobunaga no Chef – (01) 11.6%, (02) 9.9%, (03) 10.1%, (04) 11.3%, (05) 10.9%, (06) 10.7%, (07) 11.8%

Nakuna, Hara-chan – (01) 12.9%, (02) 10.3%, (03) 9.7%, (04) 9.3%, (05) 9.7%, (06) 11.0%

Share House no Koibito – (01) 11.6%, (02) 9.6%, (03) 7.4%, (04) 6.8%, (05) 9.2%, (06) 11.2%

Karamazov no Kyoudai – (01) 7.4%, (02) 7.3%, (03) 8.5%, (04) 6.4%, (05) 6.3%, (06) 6.5%, (07) 5.0%

Late Night Shows

Shinryochu -in the Room- – (01) 3.1%, (02) 2.7%, (03) 2.5%, (04) 1.3%, (05) 1.8%, (06) 2.0%, (07) 1.9%

Kodomo Keishi – (01) 1.7%, (02) 1.1%, (03) 2.1%, (04) 1.5%, (05) 1.1%

So, yeah, the story is Share House no Koibito again, popping up another 2%. It’s almost back up to its first episode number, and that’s after dropping all the way down to 6.8%. This is quite amazing.

Nobunaga no Chef actually surpassed its first episode rating, getting the highest rating last week among the dramas I’m tracking. It will have to do a lot more to beat out the averages of Biblia and Last Hope, though.

Nakuna, Hara-chan had a good week, too, getting back into double-digits.

Karamazov no Kyoudai and Kodomo Keishi were both less fortunate, hitting their bottoms for the season. I enjoyed episode three of Kodomo Keishi, but it looks like that as the height of the season so far.

We’re already getting information on next season’s dramas. I will, of course, cover the series that will be taking over in Shinryochu’s slot, which will apparently star Nakajima Kento-kun and Hashimoto Ryosuke-kun in a Bakaleya-like series with a slew of juniors backing them up. Oh, and Nikaido-kun from KMF2, as well. “Real Onigokko” starring Hongo Kanata-kun sounds promising, too.
