What planet is Japan on now?  
So, I've been watching Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's lately, the second season (魔法少女リリカルなのはA's), so I wanted to know when it airs in Japan. On the offical site, it says it airs at 25:30 or 25:35. I didn't even really parse that, so I went to No Anime No Life to double-check. It says it airs from 25:40 to 26:10 on Chiba Terebi (46).

Maybe 25:30 is a fancy way to say 1:30 am now, but for all I know, Japan no longer conforms to the 24-hour day. Does anyone know?

As far as I know that's just their way of classifying it as the night before and not the morning after.

No problem! The 24+ times confused me the first time I saw them too.

Does it only air in Chiba?
I'm in Osaka right now, and will be until Wednesday. I don't know what to watch here, but would gladly take suggestions. I have ~15 channels, no Eng. or Satellite.
Re: time format, I did yesterday see a sign here in Umeda that said a business was open 16:30 - 26:30. It's probably as aforementioned that it's 02:30. It might be a kind of carryover from the fact that Midnight here is 24:00 and not 0:00.

Re: Does it only air in Chiba?
I think it has already aired by now. *checks tokyotosho.com*
Yeah, it's already 26:20. I wish I were familiar with what else is on.

I always saw 24:00 as equivalent to 0:00. Taking it further like that is interesting.
