"Recently, My Sister is Unusual" Moved To Late Night Broadcast Slot In Japan

Can we guess why?

The TV broadcast schedule of Recently, My Sister is Unusual on TOKYO MX and Sun TV was changed from the current 10:30pm slot on Saturdays to later at night, most likely in response to the initiation of debate by the Broadcasting Ethics & Program Improvement Organization (BPO) in Japan due to concerns submitted by viewers in Japan regarding the heavy sexual content present in the show. See the announcements posted by the BPO and some Japanese viewer reactions below.

 

Here is the news post on the BPO page.
