This is just rankings for the most watched shows. Are you really that surprised? Little kids watch a lot of tv. And shows like sazae, doraemon, and shin have been going on for YEARS. It'd be crazy if you lived in japan and never watched them, i'd imagine.

I am glad to see One piece, Conan, and Pokemon up there though =) Well, mainly Conan. It's nice to see that its still popular :)

Go One Piece!! And Detective Conan!!
LOL, Naruto Shippuuden and Bleach don't even appear! (fillers could be the reason)

Actually they hover I think just outside the top 10. At least Naruto does, because i have seen it show up on this list a few times

My Favorites of this week's Anime TV Rankings ^-^:
Crayon Shin-chan
Detective Conan
One Piece
Pokemon: Diamond & Pearl

^ LOL

WooT for One Piece! Nice to see it up there~

D.Gray-Man is the one of the few shonen shows I think that deserves to be up there and is not....Ah well, we have plenty of more weeks in life to see =P

You may have noticed a slight cultural difference between Japan and the US - it's only crap to you.

Bleach and Naruto have rarely been in the top 10, they've only been there when Conan or one of the other high rating shows did not air during the week.

That said I think I will trust the opinion of the nation of Japan on what is considered good, and not some random anime fans who are crying their Naruto is not up there.
