Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Mission 29 scored itself a 5.2% this week, managing to tie the current series high set way back during episode eight. With the continued support from Wizard, it looks like Go-Busters might salvage its second half. You can also thank the interest that could have been sparked from Mission 29 and 30 being touted as the final battle against Messiah. The series average for Go-Busters so far stands at a 4.0%, well below Chouriki Sentai Ohranger’s 4.5% series average. Having run a few numbers weeks ago, it’s going to be very difficult for Go-Busters to end up as anything but the lowest rated Sentai series ever even with these improved ratings, but a higher second half is always a good thing. We have no idea where the series is going after the Gavan episodes and ratings for those should be a nice way of gauging whether or not there’s any sort of renewed interest.
Kamen Rider Wizard episode 2 scored a 7.8% rating. This is up from the first episode’s rating of 7.1%Â and is the most watched Kamen Rider episode since way back in November of 2010 when Kamen Rider OOO’s 12th episode scored an 8.2%. Kamen Rider Fourze’s second episode also saw an increase in ratings before beginning its trend downwards, losing the non kid demographic audience. The increased ratings here might show that Wizard is managing to bring some of those older lost viewers back into the fold.
