Japanese Anime TV Ranking: April 30-May 20

Nodame Cantabile makes rare top ten appearance during Golden Week holidays

With many Japanese families heading out of town during the Golden Week holidays earlier this month, most children's anime either had less viewers during that week or did not air at all. That meant that Nodame Cantabile—an after-midnight show for primarily adult female insomniacs—actually beat out earlier shows like Pocket Monsters, Sgt. Frog, and Naruto Shippūden. Zenmai Zamurai, a comedy show that normally airs in five- and ten-minute snippets on NHK's government-sponsored educational channel, aired a half-hour special during an otherwise quiet week.

It was back to normal after Golden Week with the usual suspects taking their places in the lineup for the following two weeks of May. Nodame Cantabile and Naruto Shippūden dropped out of the top ten to make way for the regular audience draws like Crayon Shin-chan (Shin-chan) and Detective Conan.
