** Oddly enough, ''Anime/HunterXHunter2011'' (The 2011 version) oddly enough started airing at ''10:55 AM'' on Sunday morning, despite being one of the most violent mainstream {{Shounen}} manga out there. [[{{Bowdlerize}} It was still quite censored]], but it was still quite violent for it's timeslot, hence moving to Tuesday Nights 25:30/Wednesday Mornings 1:30 AM for the last portion.

On an interesting note, the reason why times are listed as 24:00-27:00 (or as late as 28:00) is because of how Japanese TV listings work, and to keep a show to a certain day. (For example, the first season of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' aired Thursday 25:25, which was technically Friday Morning at 1:25 AM). Japan seems to go between using the 12-hour style of North America and Anglophone nations, to the 24-hour style of Europe, though Japan tends to lean towards the latter for television matters (Though there is the occasional use of the former for TV). Japanese TV listings work from sign-on to sign-off, and in the case of a channel operating 24 hours, like NHK General, Tokyo MX or the big free-to-air channels in the big cities, automatically turns from 28:00 hour to 4:00, as the official start of their broadcast day. (Like the ''Oha!4'' early morning news program that NTV and a number of it's affilates air.) However, unlike the United States or Canada, where most stay on the air through the night, even in smaller markets, many stations, like NHK Educational, many independent prefectural channels, most smaller stations outside of the big cities and TX (Creator/TVTokyo) affiliates outside of Tokyo regularly continue to sign-off sometime between 26:00-28:00 (2:00-4:00 AM), and resume broadcasting 4:00-6:00.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass''' first season aired at 12:30, which apparently allowed them to get away with bloody violence, swearing, [[spoiler:a girl masturbating with a table corner, and the massacre of a stadium full of people.]] The fact that the second season aired at 6 PM on Sunday, a timeslot typically reserved for news programming, required them to drastically alter the plot.

* ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'' aired at 1:15 AM, which in 1999 was one of the earliest attempts at broadcasting anime in this timeslot. Coincidentally, much of this anime takes place at night or in otherwise surreal circumstances, so the decision to air it at night may have been to enhance the viewing experience.

* ''Anime/SandsOfDestruction'' was originally created to promote [[VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction the game]], but was aired at midnight and one AM, casting doubts on how much "promotion" it actually accomplished. The game was only rated B (12+), and the show itself is ''incredibly'' tame, no more violent than your average afternoon {{Shounen}}, with no foul language or sexual content. There ''is'' the little matter that the show's "heroine" claims to be out to destroy the world, but half the time they don't even ''mention'' that fact...

* During the years when being a ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan meant you were an anorak of colossal proportions, the BigFinishDoctorWho audio dramas were played on Radio 4 at painful hours of the night (and in the years before iPlayer and Listen Again made this less important) - especially cruel seeing as they were still, essentially, children's programmes. As the revival series started and the show's profile improved, the BBC gave it more sympathetic time slots - in particular, broadcasting the first season of the ''Fourth Doctor Adventures'' in the traditional Fourth Doctor-era time slot of 5:15PM on Saturday.

* The short-lived UK channel Anime Central nearer the end of its life consisted of a two-hour block on another channel by the same owners, starting at about 1 AM- on the site for the audience ratings board in the UK (BARB), showings were referred to as "25:00". * The SciFiChannel's Ani-Monday block ran from 10PM to midnight Eastern time. They adjusted it for time zones for the standard channel but not the HD channel, so on the west coast you could see it at 7PM, potentially averting the trope.

* ''SoukouNoStrain'' aired around midnight. * ''MacrossFrontier'' was aired at 1:25 AM (rendered on Japanese TV as as 25:25) in spite of having a ridiculous amount of mainstream promotion. This is just one small part of the Noachian deluge of "25" references the series made to commemorate the 25th anniversary of ''Macross''.
