We’re getting close to season wrap-up time, as both Nobunaga no Chef and Share House no Koibito had their final episodes. This was the slowest season I’ve covered so far, but I haven’t had too much experience yet – maybe winters are just this way. Looking at the Spring season, the only series I’m firm about is Bad Boys J, continuing my coverage of that time slot. If there are subtitles, I’ll probably review Sakurai Sho-san’s Kazoku Game as well. Other contenders are Kasuka na Kanojo, Galileo 2, and Takizawa Hideaki-san’s Mayonaka no Panya-san. If there are any other dramas you’d like to suggest, or if you’d like to second one of the dramas listed above, please do so in comments.

The ratings presented below are from much more complete articles on TokyoHive – the latest one of which is available here.

The shows are all settled in their slots, with Biblia beating out Last Hope and Nobunaga no Chef staying firmly above Nakuna, Hara-chan. The two surprises in the ratings were the drop in Last Hope to its lowest rating of the season, and the sudden surge in Kodomo Keishi to tie its high. No point reading too much into either move this late in the season, though.
