As of 21042008!

The power of fan-girls and cute young Johnny boys reveals itself in the 26.4% ratings of Gokusen 3’s first episode (19th April 2008)! (But let’s not forget that Gokusen 3 has the SATURDAY NIGHT time slot, so maybe in addition to excited fans more people just had time to switch on their TV then.)

Anyway Gokusen 3 takes number one place in this week’s viewership rankings.

*edit 22042008: now we know why kimutaku’s CHANGE schedule dates had to be postponed!!! har har har

 2. TBS’ [Around 40] with 14.95% (featuring Amami Yuki)

7. TBS’ [ROOKIES] with 12.20% (The one with Shirota Yu haha. Haven’t read the storyline but the whole look + feel gives me a Crows Zero + Gokusen feeling. You think? Anyway it started screening on the same saturday as Gokusen 3. Just to give things some perspective)

    hmm, interesting. hokaben didn’t fare too well. where is the aya ueto magic? proves ryo wins over shige. attention please. lol at what’s his name johnny wants to groom. nobody knows him. no one cares.

    \O_O/ That’s like a KimuTaku drama in terms of ratings. Oh well, Nakama Yukie with good-looking, young men is a TNT formula.

    oooooooo i cant wait to watch gokusen 3, just to see what its like. i have a feeling….it’ll be the same. i want to watch last friends!!!

    and the rookies show right, i was reading manga on my manga site and the name striked my attention but the storyline didnt lol. i may watch it for shirota yuu, but i think i want to try zettai kareshi first😄 i read the whole manga.

  4. to blaire: haha personally though i don’t really *see* the aya ueto magic. but maybe appeals more to jap audiences. as for nakayama yuuma haha people half my age are prob gaga over him, and they’ll be the next generation of power consumers😀

    to H no Granny: your comment reminded me of kimutaku’s dorama (change) being postponed! like we all knew the rescheduling was for ratings purposes but this was case in point man! hahaha

    to lisa: as in the rookies’ title caught your attention but the story is boring?!!?!? hahaha and yah gokusen 3 will be the same thing with different (not so cute ) actors. none of them scream out to me. but i just gotta see one episode to confirm that there are no cute actors. hahahaha.i want to see how they fare in their second episode (what’s zettai kareshi about?)

  5. 5 lisa

    lol its a typical shuojo about this robot guy…. who is sold to a girl to be her bf blah blah blah you can read it at onemanga.com :> yeah lol the title attracted me heheehehe
