In its Top 10 Television Animation Programs
for that particular week, Vol. 14, which will be archived here
within a week or so, Video Research Ltd. later confirmed all the figures above, except for Shizuku-chan.
According to Video Research Ltd., Kodai Ouja Kyouryuu King D Kids Adventure finished in 9th place with a 4.8%. This means that Shizuku-chan received no better than a 4.3% and finished out of the Top 10. A 4.0% for it may very well be true.
