We will have a better grid coming soon plus ratings analysis and a comparison to last year coming soon! Also remember to check out the Toonami Faithful podcast for full discussion on ratings!


  1. I’d say the contest drummed up some SAO viewership. Why don’t you people like One Piece? Ah well nice to see IGPX finish off in the 700,000s and the second half is surprisingly high again.

    • This is the response I get from most people about One Piece. They don’t like the cartoony drawing Oda imposes on One Piece. I mean it makes sense the drawing; One Piece is a wacky world with so much going on that’s why I like it I get to explore that world. Glad about the SAO viewership at least it brought in something.

      So on last note I’ll be glad to watch FLCL for the first time and actually try to give the show a chance. As for Ghost in the Shell you know for sure it’s a flick to watch each weekend.

    • It not really about rather you like One Piece or not. Look we just left the Davy Back fight and that is one of the most childish arcs and arguably one of the least liked. One Piece is just really hard for people to get into. IMO I think Fairy Tail would do better..yea it is worse but it gives in to the action more than One Piece does. I think if we give One Piece a promo for water 7 arc it will do better

      • Fairy tail is super childish at least for the first 50 episodes,canon has just started for one piece and the following arcs are great and mature,so I think it would do better even though it’s doing really good right now!toonami also has to support it as naruto doing reruns and bleach is ending,so the next big series is OP!soo we need a promo for water 7!

  2. Seriously, guys. Get One Piece’s ratings back up. It was doing so well during the Davy Back Fight, and we’re literally about to enter Water Seven.

    That said, I’m not at all surprised about the ratings on Sword Art Online. Everyone loves a contest.

  3. The ratings of one piece are getting better the gap is about 70k actually naruto losing more viewers after bleach!don’t say bad ratings because it is below 900k!overall good ratings for most of the shows!!

    • What’s so laughable about IGXP? It was my first time viewing the entire series and while season 1 took some time to get into, the entire series as a whole was decently good. Not better, not great, not amazing, but it is a pretty good original series. How it all ended was nicely done. It had enjoyable action, some finalized character development, and it had a decent wrap up.

      Although I kinda wished there was a bit more structured in terms of how they handled everyone’s closures. But overall how it all wrapped up was still nice.
      Enjoying the series from start to finish, I’ll even go as far as to say that I’ve become a decent fan of IGPX, and will be collecting any DVDs of the series.
      As for the ratings at hand, these ratings are pretty good. No shows dropped below 600,000. Although I’m still puzzled as to how Inuyasha has better ratings than the final airing of the last Cowboy Bebop episode.

      Oh well, not really looking forward to FLCL, it never grabbed my attention despite its good animation. But I look forward in seeing Ghost in the Shell again, I still love that series.

      • Oh no dude I was talking about iGPX is laughable int the ratings. Cause with that whole promo we end up with still a big drop…and no I am not planing to colelct those expensive box sets.
