Wow, I knew it's ratings were high, but I didn't know they were record-breakingly so. ^^

Wow, this drama's amazing!!
ohcrepe 24th-Sep-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
Yes! Now I can continue watching. I stopped after episode 1 because I don't want to torture myself on a weekly basis.

definitely adding this to watchlist

additional info c/o doramaworld

"Hanzawa Naoki" is No.4 in terms of top average ratings for dramas in the Kanto region since ratings monitoring began in September 1977 and has grabbed the No.1 spot in Kansai, beating "Mito Komon" which had held the title since 1981.

The record-breaking ratings are well-deserved.
None of the episodes have unnecessary scene, and all episodes have kept viewers on their toes. This has got to be one of the very few non-thriller genre dramas that gives off the thrilling feels nonetheless.
Acting of all main characters are flawless, especially Sakai Masato, Kagawa Teruyuki and Takito Kenichi.
Not at all surprise with ratings of the last episode because that last dogeza scene! So intense! I would be watching that scene again for sure.
Lastly, I love my idol(s) and all, but I'm glad that this non-idol starring drama has become the record holder!

I wonder how long we will have to wait to hear an announcement for a SP or second season for it.

I feel sorry for Kimutaku's drama next season tho
castelfranca 24th-Sep-2013 05:42 am (UTC)
Not really feeling sorry, but I'm kinda worried that people will compare those two dramas even though their stories are totally different from each other. :x

I'm afraid people will say that his star power has gone down, especially when taking the baton from such a high-ratings drama...

Actually, I had the impression that Long Vacation had ratings of more than 50%......or maybe I remembered wrongly. The kdrama My Name Is Kim Sam Soon was the one which reached that rating. I do remember the saying that Kimutaku took all ladies off the streets on Monday nights as everyone rushed back to watch Long Vacation. :P

asweetsymphony 24th-Sep-2013 06:01 pm (UTC)
Wow, looking at that list, it seems that TBS and NTV is way more reputable than Fuji TV. I always thought Fuji TV was the drama king but I guess not. This makes me want to watch now. Lols. It's amazing how the ratings are so high especially when we live in a digital world now.
