[News] "Atsuhime" opener, "Nodame" SP break 20%

January 7,2008
Source: Tokyograph

According to data released by Video Research Ltd., the first episode of the NHK taiga drama "Atsuhime," which aired on the 6th, had viewership ratings of 20.3% (19.8% in the Kansai region). Last year's taiga drama, "Fuurinkazan," started out with ratings of 21.0% (16.2% in Kansai).

Also exceeding the 20% mark was "Nodame Cantabile Shinshun Special in Europe," the two-night continuation of last year's popular "Nodame Cantabile" drama series. The January 4 broadcast had ratings of 18.9%, which increased to 21.0% for the January 5 episode.


Mel's Edit: Hmm, in all honesty I was actually hoping for a higher number in ratings for the SP but I guess at least it went over 20%. And Tokyograph (or it's original source) got the fact wrong here; the SP was not a "continuation of last year's popular "Nodame Cantabile" drama series" because the final episode of the 11-eps dorama aired on December 25, 2006 not 2007. Or maybe somebody made a mistake and think it's still 2007..lol.

Go watch it there(while you still can ;-) and while we are at it, please don't grumble or complain about it being non-subbed and whatnot; this person had uploaded the clips voluntarily at his/her own expense and the least we could do for him/her is be polite and thankful, instead of complaining about everything.Sorry for the rant,it just really irritates me to see some of the comments posted on the videos.Some people just don't have any sense of manners..ohwell.

Some more Shinichi/Megumi ♥






Now that made me feel so much better.^^
