So, the new season of Squid Girl is coming out in Japan on Monday, 9/26. Not even 2 days from now. What does Crunchyroll have to say about this? Bupkis. What's going on?

Because it was a leak and hasn't been officially announced yet.

The Sunday time listed in the leak was definitely incorrect, as that was before the actual air time in Japan. (It airs at 2 AM on Tuesday in Japan, which would be around mid-day for most of the United States).

If it is indeed simulcast with the first broadcast, it should be posted at the same time that YuruYuri was, as it is airing in the same time slot on TV Tokyo. If that is the case, CR would no doubt announce it on Monday morning, as with the exception of announcements of conventions, they rarely make simulcast announcements on weekends.

As llamaben reminded me in another topic, however, the simulcast of the original series was 3 days after the first broadcast, so no one should go into panic mode if it is not announced Monday.

UPDATE:

The simulcast has now been officially announced:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-734975/new-fall-titles-squid-girl?pg=0

At this moment, they list the start time as 12:30 AM PST on Monday, which is 12 hours before it is first broadcast in Japan. I expect they meant PM (as that would be the same time as YuruYuri was simulcast), as if they actually post it early that would be very bad. (Just ask Funimation or ANN what happens when a simulcast gets out early). I would not be concerned, except that on the video page, the countdown for the first episode of season 2 reflects that same time.

UPDATE 2:

As of 9:13 PM PDT on Sunday, the countdown on the video page had been changed to reflect a premiere 13 hours later (keep in mind the countdown only reports whole hours), which would be after the premier in Japan.

The first message in the announcement topic was soon after changed to reflect a simulcast time of 10:30 AM PDT on Monday (the same time as YuruYuri was simulcast).

Whew! CR had me worried there for a while.

At first glance I took it as typo and so I'm expecting the anime to start@ 3:30pm EST

Actually the countdown has it starting at 3:30am EST Monday - 2 hrs before Gintama
it will be 9:30 pm where I am and the countdown is showing 6 hrs till it starts

Edit:
Time Change: now it streams @ 10:30 am PST (1:30pm EST)
Countdown now reflects the change.
