Along with airing weird grievances, Nintendo's recent shareholders meeting allowed shareholders a chance to vote for or against everyone on the board. Satoru Iwata's 2014 approval rating of 80.64% is an increase compared to last year's 77.26%, according to Ministry of Finance data found by Neogaf's Aquamarine. The previous three years, in order: 90.60%, 92.89%, 96.74%. 

Shigeru Miyamoto's approval rating has dipped from 92.74% to 86.81%. The rest of the board's approval ratings went down slightly as well. 

This voting happens in all public Japanese corporations. While Iwata's bump is a good sign of renewed faith, his 80.64% approval rating is low compared to other CEOs in the industry. 

Kazuo Hirai, CEO of Sony Corporation: 89%
Yousuke Matsuda, CEO of Square Enix: 93.51%
Shukuo Ishikawa, CEO of Bandai Namco: 95.8%
Kagesama Kozuki, CEO and Founder of Konami: 91.89%
Kenzo Tsujimoto, CEO and Founder of Capcom: 97.28%
Koichi Kitazumi, CEO of Nippon Ichi Software: 99.6%
