Hirokazu Oshida - Head of TV-Tokyo's animation division Quote:

The head of TV-Tokyo's animation division, Hirokazu Oshida (押田裕一) was quoted by Yahoo News Japan discussing the change in the shows air time.

"Starting in the fall of 2018, TV Tokyo will create a new anime programming block on Sunday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:30pm which is targeted at families, particularly children. As people's lives and viewing habits change, we want to change our focus towards the concept of "spending your days off relaxing with your family." Starting with those two programs (Boruto Naruto Next Generations and Pocket Monsters Sun and Moon) and continuing on with shows like "Moya-Moya Summers 2", "Emergency SOS! The Great Plan to Drain All the Water from the Pond", and "Ikegami's Sunday Primetime World", we hope the whole family will come together to enjoy TV Tokyo's programming. We're going to continue striving to make sure everyone continues to love these shows for a long time. Please look forward to both these programs."
