News More Distractions Lead to Falling Kids' Anime Ratings
posted on 2007-06-12 10:03 EDT
Hollywood Reporter reviews the decline in the primetime audience of children's anime in Japan due to games, afterschool activities, and other distractions. Specifically, Sgt. Frog (Keroro-Gunsō) had to move from Friday evenings to Saturday mornings this past April, and One Piece had to move to Sunday mornings. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo tried moving from Saturday evenings to Saturday mornings in 2004, but was canceled in 2005. The National Congress of the Parents Teachers Association reported in December that 92% of fifth-graders have game systems. Thanks, Gatsu.
