Miyamoto's placing

Quite interesting enough Miyamoto only placed fourth when it came to the highest approval rating of all of the five executives. For those who are unfamiliar with Miyamoto, this is the man behind the Mario creation!

In addition, all of the five directors' ratings have increased year after year, with Furukawa's own rating climbing up from the previous 92.04%, this is quite a drastic jump! The list has also included certain board members just like Naoki Noguchi having an approval rate of 92.13%, Katsuhiro Umeyama with an approval rate of 98.57%, Masao Yamazaki with an approval rate of 98.56%, and finally, Asa Shinkawa with an approval rate of 90.46%.
