Sousou no Frieren is among the most watched this season

We have previously talked about GEM Partnersa Japanese company that conducts weekly surveys to find out what the most viewed content is on television and streaming services in Japan. Although these surveys began with a participation small enough to be considered relevantthe most recent reports indicate the participation of more than 24,500 people through the company’s media, mostly electronic.

However, the company’s methods are still questionable, since they generally ask what respondents have recently watched on streaming services. This means that they are not popularity polls for the season currently broadcast, since someone could say that they “watched Dragon Ball recently” and this would count as a point towards this franchise within this list.

Even so, it seems that the results are attracting attention among opinion forums in Japan, since the ranking for the third week of October-2023 (10/17/2023~10/23/2023) they positioned Jujutsu Kaisen in first position, followed by SPY x FAMILY and Sousou no Frieren (Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End).

And of course, the results immediately caught the attention of Japanese Internet users:

  • «What is this ranking about? I don’t understand what Dragon Ball is doing on the list».
  • «It seems that they have changed the survey method to cover more people, but even so I don’t think the results are reliable».

  • «I’m getting the feeling that Kusuriya no Hitorigoto is going to hit the ground running this season, which is why it just premiered.».

  • «Be that as it may, this ranking shows that the only interesting content in this country is anime».
