The Top Ten TV anime series in Japan for the week of October 13th - October 19th, Detective Conan and Yatterman take a week off.

1. Sazae-san
2. Chibi Maruko-chan
3. Crayon Shin-chan
4. Doraemon
5. One Piece
6. Gegege no Kitarō
7. Yes! Precure 5 GoGo!

Important notice: We decided that this is the last TV ranking here, since there are almost always the same shows in it and the majority of them are not popular at all outside Japan. However, if you do care about the TV rankings you can always find them in dtshyk’s blog. We are still going to post DVD and manga rankings.

How about a filtered list then? A list only showing the current season's shows? Or is that not newsworthy enough...?

This would be interesting, though... why don't they do this? >.<
Seeing the same names over and over again is just boring D:


Only Top 10 anime ratings are officially provided by Video Research (the TV rating research company in Japan). The ratings below top 10 are collected by 2channel users from the TV channel customer center, TV programs, blogs, magazines, newspapers, and leaks by the Video Research employees. So those sources are not considered to be reliable enough for the MAL news. That's why we decided to provide the TV rating info unofficially in my blog.

Always the same stuff in the top 10...

If I consider how great the actual season is... :/

Though if you ask me, you should have a sticky in this forum that links to blogs that can be used for weekly ranking stuff and new show/manga announcements, and use this thread for more diverse news: New anime inspired/related technology, anime inspired infrastructure, changes in studio business (online anime for english fans, another studio bites the dust, etc), and maybe even some general japanese culture things. Heh... I'm not that big on anime news anyway. I do find the statistics here useful, though.

Ehhh?? But you never know!! Good shows pop up everytime, for starters, next year Haruhi2 airs, no? You can bet it will be in the top 10. And there's plenty of new other cool shows that will be aired!

Meh, at least we all know that One Piece will always be in the top 10.
How long has it been running for? 11 years now? xD

Terrible kid shows? Compared to the ones in North America, Japanese kid shows look like the messiah XP

Lol, I think that's a good decision because every week is the same really.
As for manga & DVDs, it's not. So thanks for keeping them :)
