Hey guys,

Just a quick note for people who set their clocks one hour ahead yesterday morning, like people in the USA..

Since our simulcast shows (the all-new episodes shown on the same day it airs in Japan, like Naruto Shippuden, Gintama, Skip Beat, Shugo Chara, Druaga 2, Linebarrels etc) are pegged to Japan time (JST), everything is shifted one hour later. For example, where I live in California, Naruto used to be released on Thursday mornings at 3am. Gintama used to be at 1:30am, and is now 2:30am. Now they will be released Thursday mornings at 4am PST, since PST is now -7 GMT instead of -8 GMT.

This does not affect catalog episode release times. Also, if your country doesn't participate in Daylight Savings, there's no change.

Check the release calendar for the full details in your local time.

Example if you live in the US:

(PST is Pacific Time, so like California, Oregon, etc)
(EST is Eastern Time, so like New York, Massachusetts, etc)

Naruto Shippuden - Thursdays 4am PST / 7am EST
Gintama - Thursdays 2:30am PST / 5:30am EST
Shugo Chara - Fridays 6pm PST / 9pm EST
Skip Beat! - Sundays 10:30am PST / 1:30am EST
The Tower of Druaga (Sword of Uruk) - Thursdays 12pm noon PST / 3pm EST
Linebarrels of Iron - Fridays 7:30pm PST / 10:30pm EST

Should I be raging? So, is it coming out later than it used to or am I completely wrong? I don't really understand, as you can tell.

I had forgotten not everyone does daylight savings. Thanks for the reminder Shinji. I'm also in California so I'll be affected the same way. It is nice to have the sun out a bit later though.

Same here even though we pay for immediate release of the shows. I live in the USA but I'm still confused.

It's not coming out later. We just moved our clocks forward...according to the day it will be the same time as before.

If you live in the US:

For the all-new shows that are synchronize to Japan's release time, they are one hour later (according to US clocks).
Check the calendar, but here are some notable ones:

(PST is Pacific Time, so like California, Oregon, etc)
(EST is Eastern Time, so like New York, Massachusetts, etc)

Naruto Shippuden - Thursdays 4am PST / 7am EST
Gintama - Thursdays 2:30am PST / 5:30am EST
Shugo Chara - Fridays 6pm PST / 9pm EST
Skip Beat! - Sundays 10:30am PST / 1:30am EST
The Tower of Druaga (Sword of Uruk) - Thursdays 12pm noon PST / 3pm EST
Linebarrels of Iron - Fridays 7:30pm PST / 10:30pm EST

Ok, so since it's daylight savings time, and we move up an hour on daylight savings time, we move it up one hour from regular time?
Or are we adding another hour too that daylight savings time time?

Japan doesn't follow Daylight Savings Time? Darn, I thought that was on the list of things we have in common.
