TV Asahi's Super Hero Time block to get changed, families voice their concerns
Sounds like a new transformation
For a good while, the Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and Precure franchise have been airing every Sunday on Japan's TV Asahi network from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., with the two toku shows being part of the Super Hero Time block. With the appearance of News Sunday, the placeholder title the upcoming new segment, entering the scene, it seems that this upcoming program will affect these morning titles.
Since this news program airs from 5 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., TV Asahi's Sunday children shows will run from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The weird part about this change is that the titles are airing in reversed order, with Sentai being the final show on the Super Hero Time block.
Due to this change, many parents are worried about this change affecting their schedule. Some of them are concerned about their routines being pushed back, along with the effect it'll have on their kids' morning activities. Of course, there are a couple families who're happy about this, since their children will get some extra sleep before their favorite Sunday hero shows air.
Super Hero Time's schedule change starts in October, which means that families might get to adapt to this new routine before the big day. If this new formula will affect the block's viewership, I'm curious to see if it will result in Toei's two tokusatsu franchises taking a new route in 2018. Until then, we'll just have to see if this will result in a good or bad thing.
