Kamen Rider & Super Sentai Broadcast Timing Changes: Saddens Fans, Clashes with Dragon Ball Super & One Piece Timing
TV Asahi which broadcast the Kamen Rider Series & Super Sentai Series since the beginning of 70's had announced to change the time slot of Kamen Rider Series & Super Sentai Series for their new 2 hours News Program which start from October.
TV Asashi had announced to the media that they will be starting a new News Program with temporary title "Sunday Live". Shonentai's (Johnny's) Noriyuki Higashiyama will be the news caster of this News Program at the age of 51. This show starts from 5:50 AM in the morning to 8:30 AM. But the usual Super Sentai & Kamen Rider Series which used to air from 7:30 AM to 8:30 needs to be shifted to 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. This shifting had called threat to many fans. The airing time of PreCure Series will remain the same because it airs on ABC TV (TV Asahi's Sister Channel).
This shifting also causes another problem. On Fuji TV, Dragon Ball Super airs from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM & One Piece from 9:30 AM to 10:00. The fans have to make decision to watch either Kamen Rider - Super Sentai or DB Super - One Piece in real time. This would seriously effect the ratings of these TV Shows.
With the change of timing, Kamen Rider will now air first and then Super Sentai.
