    Really amazing titles I must say. Now I just wonder who came up with them.

    The movie, The Power of Us, will air on Disney XD on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 7:00 PM local time. This is a chance to see the movie if you didn't (or chose not to) go to the theater to see it right away.

    I refuse to pay money to TPCI through the anime department, so this is better.

    (Shame it airs a day after Smash Ultimate comes out.)

    Looking at the TV guide, I'm surprised there's not a marathon of episodes leading upto, or coming out of, the premiere -- I feel like Disney XD usually does that when they air the movies.

    SM086 is airing on January 12, meaning that there's a one-week break on January 5.

    So we're not going to deal with the 2-4 month hiatus at the beginning of the year?

    I think that hiatus might still happen between Season 21 and Season 22, but the difference this year as opposed to last year is that Season 21 is still ongoing into the new year. This is because of the 43-day hiatus we randomly had this year from May to July with no explanation, which was the longest midseason hiatus since DP024 aired on Monday, July 16, 2007, and DP025 aired on Saturday, September 1, 2007. Also, the between-seasons hiatus doesn't always happen at the very beginning of the year as you suggest: for example in 2017 between Seasons 19 and 20, the hiatus was from February to May. For example the hiatus might still end up being at the exact same months in 2019, who knows.

    I think the January 5 break is just a holiday break, but why they didn't take it on either December 22 or 29, when people are more likely to be on vacation and/or otherwise unable to watch, is beyond me.

    Okay, after watching this episode, HOW did they not stick with the Japanese pun title of Dance Dance Evolution!!! That would have been SO good!!!!

    I find that unlikely, being that practically every dub title is just as blatant of a reference to something else. Heck, "Dance Dance Evolution" sounds like a dub title to me. If "They Might Not Be Giants!" or "Dummy, You Shrunk the Kids!" will go through, I don't think "Dance Dance Evolution" would get them in trouble.

    ...Though funnily enough, I'm not sure that pun was even intentional. The Japanese phrasing... Sure, it has "Dance Dance" in it, but "Evolution" was in Japanese, so if it was indeed meant to be a reference all along, it was a reference that somehow managed to work far better in the translation than in the original Japanese.

    Yup. No episode on Saturday, January 5, 2019. Japan will not have an episode on Sunday, December 30, 2018, either. Both of these dates are in the same week, but different month, day, and year.

    Saturday, January 19, 2019.

    Saturday, January 26, 2019.

    Likely Saturday, February 2, 2019. If so, then SM90 should be the last episode of Season 21 and should air on Saturday, February 9, 2019.

    Season 19 ended late January 2017. Season 20 began mid-May 2017. Season 20 ended early December 2017. Season 21 began late March 2018. Season 21 is on track to end in early February 2019. Season 22 might not begin until May 2019. Whenever Season 22 begins, it's still possible for a marathon of episodes. On Saturday, July 1, 2017, Disney XD premiered six new episodes, all on that day. In the final week of March 2018, Disney XD premiered eight new episodes, once a day from Saturday, March 24, 2018 to Saturday, March 31, 2018.

    How do you know it's the season finale?

    We don't know that for sure, but Episode 90 was the ending to a significant arc in the animé, so if they're going to end a season relatively soon, that would be the episode to end it on.

    Episode 90 was the end of an arc, it was the last episode aired on Thursday, it was the last episode featuring Mirai Connection as the theme song, and it was followed by a three week break. There is literally no other episode that it would even make sense to end the "Ultra Adventures" season on, unless they want to keep it running for the rest of Gen 7.

    EDIT: Oh, and it also had a special ending. Or rather, episode 90 didn't have the normal opening sequence, instead integrating the opening sequence into the end. Which I'm still wondering how the dub will handle... though the most likely answer to that is that they'll play the sequence with some sort of instrumental track, because them actually playing Mirai Connection is exceedingly unlikely, and neither of the Sun & Moon dub openings really fit the bill at all. (Under the Alolan Sun is too goofy, and Under the Alolan Moon is far too dreary.)

    Dub seasons don't always end at the end of major arcs just look at Season 17 for a recent example.
