No Code Geass, v-v
Anyways, <.< There arent very many shows I am watching that are on that. I would think at lease Vampire Knight or Soul Eater would be on that. o.o

At least Naruto Shippuuden is doing better then Bleach. Anyone notice Bleach is doing poorly? I'm tempted to stop watching Bleach because of poor quality. Even Macross F had a bit of dodgy quality in episode 8 as some say.
I'm so been living under a rock, I need to catch up with better anime ¬_¬


I dropped Bleach around ep. 70 -_-;

yeah bleach has sucked lately, i had been following it and the manga up until around ep 170 for the anime.. but this new story arch has no relation with the manga and i just cant get into it. seems so dumb, that ichigo has to protect some loli princess... more random plot that has nothing to do with the main story -.-

NOt surprising. Shippuden being in between all other child shows, that is...

Bleach at least better in story than "Child Ninjas saving friend"


That's kinda funny since Bleach is the one that lacks any real story. Naruto at least doesn't have a completely linear plot.

Also, Naruto is always in the top 10, at least most of the time. I don't know why people are surprised.

Yay - so glad Library war finally made it!! One of the best new anime this season... now why isn't Soul Eater up yet? XD


Soul Eater does decently well for its timeslot, but it's somewhere in the #20-30 range as far as ratings rankings go. That episode of Toshokan Sensou that cracked the top 10 got a 4.5 rating (got a 2.8 this week so it will drop out of the top 10) while Soul Eater's last episode got a 2.6, although it has been as high as 3.1. Toshokan Sensou also benefits from being in this season's noitaminA slot.

And for those who keep track of these kind of things, Geass R2's ratings hit an all-time high this past week (3.3), but still not quite in the top 10.

Pokemon has standed the test of time...I'll always have fond memories of the first series.

Zomg Maruko-chan, ^_^ i used to love watching that anime when i was a kid

Jun 18, 2008 10:24 AM by djinn_690

Not a very surpirsing list at all. Well, maybe Toshokan Sensō was a little odd but apart from that it seems to be pretty a normal list.

And for further notice the new series with Kitarou is named Hakaba no Kitarou (like the original manga they are all based on) and not Gegege no Kitarou like previous series.
EDIT: nevemind what I wrote before, didn't think that Gege no Kitaro was still airing. Weird to have to adaptions of the series airing at the same time :/
