Although the announcement states it starts October 4 at 9 PM eastern, that would be a problem if it did, considering it supposedly doesn't premiere in Japan until 1 AM on October 6 (about 18 hours from when I post this).

I suspect the announcement was actually supposed to read October 5.

Nah, the hours are right, are you adjusting for Japan Time?

Our simulcast will go out as planned, as we have had our release dates and hours approved by the licensors. Thanks.

Yeah, he's accounting for the adjusted JP time.
It's listed on the TokyoMX schedule to be aired in 17 hours from now, at the 25:00 mark.
Which I believe is the actual first JP airing.

The first airing time (on Tokyo MX) as listed by a number of different websites is 10/05 25:00 (July 6 at 1:00 AM JST).

Unless the actual airing in Japan changed very recently, it certainly looks like you'll be beating the first broadcast in Japan by a good margin.

This may be the first simulcast to air in North America first, at least LEGALLY anyway.

Quite true!
Though I do happen to notice that, unlike when they put up their usual simulcasts, they only have a placemarker for Ep. 01 for this, instead of all the ep. placemarkers.
Which I found a little odd when I added the player link to the first post after the PR was sent out.
Especially since the PR lists 12 episodes.

I see the first episode is now back to a placeholder, showing it will be available October 5 at 9:00 PM EDT.

I wonder how many hours it was available for before that happened.


I see that the original announcement hasn't been modified yet, and it still proudly proclaims the premiere on October 4.

The announcement is now deleted also any trace of To Love Ru ~ Darkness on The Anime Network. I wonder if it would even be simulcast now?

Consider how long it took for ANN to get the Oreimo simulcast back after they leaked an episode. Now consider this wasn't a leak; it was purposefully posted by the site prior to the premiere in Japan, and worse, this was called to their attention beforehand (ahem).

The one saving grace would be if the October 4 @ 9:00 PM EDT time was approved by someone in Japan (and not by Sentai - Rai's "the licensors" doesn't make that clear). Even then, if the contract includes any additional provision requiring verification the episodes are not posted before they air in Japan, they could still be in hot water.
