Twitter user”数土直志 (@sudotashi)” shared an update citing a statement from the president of the television station Tokyo TV where he commented on the anime’s ratings Spy x FAMILY. Although the series airs on Saturdays at 11:00 pm (Japan time), it maintains the average viewership rating of those who watch the series at that time, but rises up to three times among viewers.
This may cause broadcasters to reconsider their decisions to broadcast major anime relatively late at night, as the numbers suggest that most record the show to watch later. Write the complete statement:
- Words from the President TV Tokyo. The ratings for “SPY x FAMILY” are very strong. The average viewership rate is 1.8%, but the index including time-varying (referring to a recording of a program for later viewing) increases up to 5.6%that’s 6.0% for the first episode broadcast on 1 October.
- This is a huge number for time-shifted audience ratings, the best among all shows on all stations since July 2022. That being said, it is questionable whether it actually aired in that time slot. This could be a case study in a big change in the way people watch TV shows.
Summary of SPY x FAMILY
For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too tall if it’s for the sake of peace. Acting as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing war on neighboring Ostania. To get his latest mission, he must investigate Austrian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Therefore, the actor has the most difficult task of his profession: to get married, have a child and play a family.
Twilight, aka “Loid Forger”, quickly adopts the humble orphan Anya to take on the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective student of Eden Academy. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, an absentee office worker who needs a partner to impress her friends. However, Lloyd is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is the deadly assassin “Princess of Thorn” and Loid’s marriage creates a perfect cover for her. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl it seems; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. While discovering their own identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are top secret agents! She wouldn’t tell them, of course. That would spoil the fun.
