Nice to see whats on top this week. :)

Also, loved the snip of the top 49 and what time they actually air according to the day.

Nice to know the percentage's to (hint to the news team), but dtshyk, posting the other 40 were unnecessary, and leave this to the news team, no need to read it twice. (but like I said, percentage's are nice, thanks for that.)

I don't think the ratings below top 10 is unnecessary. This is Weekly news, not one shot story discussing the general popular anime programs in Japan. I roughly categorized the programs according to the airing time because 4.5% means differently depending on when the anime was aired. I don't want MAL users to be misled by insufficient information. I provide complementary info to the DVD and manga rankings for the same reason.
Here is the change of Code Geass R2 rating.

Ep 14 2.2%
Ep 15 2.7%
Ep 16 2.2%
Ep 17 2.1%
Ep 18 1.8%
Ep 19 2.2%
Ep 20 3.6%
Ep 21 3.7%
Ep 22 2.6%
Ep 23 3.9%
Ep 24 4.0%

I think it's attracting more and more viewers toward the finale.

Thanks for the top 49 and the percentage info.

Yay for OP :-p

I hope that Bleach will get better rank now that we will be back to canon story.

agreed, every week the top ten is more or less in the same order anyway, so about the info and the ratings about the other shows i keep watching are really handy ^^ thx

Nice info their dtshyk.

It's nice to know where shows I actually watch are ranking, other than the usual family oriented stuff that is always in the top ten.
