The top three actually lost some ground, but since all of them decreased, they didn’t change positions. Baby Steps 2 gained some points mainly because of more support, but who knows if that’ll keep up. Simply because the threshold to get into the “top five” is so low this season – just about a normalized score of 1.0 – I’m pretty sure major upheavals are not only possible, but also probable. Really puts Shirobako’s stamping of authority last season into perspective – a consistent normalized score of above 4.5, wow.

Plastic Memories has so many points to lose after the points it accumulated from the first two weeks that it continues to be one of the steepest falling shows – even though it’s not been supported for consecutive weeks now. I wonder if it’ll reach below 0.1 before I start plotting out the data. It’ll look like the hypotenuse of the axes.

Ore Monogatari also lost a significant amount, though it’s hanging on above a score of 2.0 for the week. I personally was put off by the end of the episode that I felt undid all the good work that had been done earlier, such as Sunakawa’s spiel about friends of good people not necessarily being good too, and just the whole realism and human-ness of the relationships. I liked seeing Gouda’s guy friends, and how popular he was, and how these people knew his true nature and appreciated him. I did not like how they “resolved” the girls’ impression of Gouda by going to completely unrealistic extents. It was stupid, and what annoyed me more, is that it was quite unnecessary. I prefer the show when the characters talk to each other to progress the plot, and I’m turned off by these random events that occur like the beam falling a couple of episodes ago, and the fire this week. Is that really the only way the author feels Takeo’s “goodness” can be shown to people who don’t know him? I was ready to write off the beam incident after the great episode last week as an aberration – maybe not the best choice but I could deal with it. I’m way less inclined to forgive this week’s shenanigans because I dread there is a pattern forming here.

Kyoukai no Rinne and Jojo are the two new entrants this week. Nothing really special. Our distribution of points is a lot more varied this season. No-one seems to be bothering with any of the action shows, because they seem to do so much better in the public APR, but are languishing here. I don’t really care, but I felt I should point it out.

Maybe something surprising will happen next week?
