* Content concerns are a big deal, as in most other countries. Otaku O'Clock shows tend to be on the more violent or sexual side in terms of content. Such shows have been aired in prime time before, but not to universal acclaim; in particular, there was large public outcry in 1995 when ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' aired in the dinner hour. In spite of the post-{{Watershed}} timing, though, many of these shows will still be {{censor|shiptropes}}ed or [[OffModel otherwise poorly executed]], at least partly to convince the otaku to buy the [=DVD=].

* ''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...

* Most TV in Japan is provided by the six free-to-air broadcast networks[[note]]Or independent broadcast stations which are members of the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Association_of_Independent_Television_Stations JAITS[[/note]] (which, like many other large Japanese corporations, are practically government). If it's not on one of those networks, it's not likely to succeed, and because the landscape is so competitive, very few shows can draw the ratings needed to stay in prime time or on an after-school timeslot. Shows aired on cable or satellite channels account for only 10% of overall anime viewership in Japan.
