the producers should've given the lead to Tamachan instead, he would've saved this drama from floppage IMO!

Yes, but 3.1% is just....too low.

I think Fuji made the mistake when they decided to open this timeslot and compete directly with TBS' Sunday 9PM drama, which is the most prestige timeslot of TBS. I read some rumors that they are canceling this slot though.

Yeah, trying to go up against TBS on Sunday nights is a very bad idea. Just, be glad you own Monday nights Fuji TV, and leave the Sunday dramas to TBS.
