I know I'm way, way late to commenting on this, but holy hell that's amazing. I didn't really expect a Kumeta anime to do decently ever again, but this is a great start.
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei kinda dropped like a rock as the seasons progressed, the BD-Boxes did alright, the Katte ni Kaizo OVA's did something like 3k iirc and to see Joshiraku do 4k first week is really awesome. I did notice this series had a ton of coverage from Japanese blogs as episodes aired, and it seems like it did better than I thought it would.
Hopefully it keeps this up. I doubt a second season will happen but I'd like this to do well regardless.
