Angel Beats Boasts Record Ratings


Angel Beats boasts record TV ratings in excess even of K-ON!, on some stations at least.

Despite at times shaky production values, the response to the anime has been overwhelmingly positive, and this extends to TV viewership as well.

MBS viewership of the 6th episode was in fact estimated at 4.9%, the highest rating late night anime in 3 years, and a respectable lead over moeblob anime K-ON!! at 3.9% in the same slot. K-ON! still maintains its lead on most stations, however.

Angel Beats now looks set to emulate Haruhi in both popularity and certain coincidental resemblances critics never tire of mentioning.
