A month ago, We have posted a report from Asia Media Journal about the upcoming revamp of ANIMAX, which includes having a new look and adding Korean shows in the programming line-up, starting May 03 for the Philippine feed and Malaysia (Astro) feed. And now we are learning some new details about the programming.
If you are watching ANIMAX in the Philippines or on ASTRO in Malaysia, You may have already seen this commercial. Some of the notable programmes that you can see are Princess Hours and Coffee Prince, but according to the ANIMAX Spokesperson, JasmineAtAnimax on twitter, they are also going to air the variety programme Y-Star Live Power Music and the reality show Pretty Boys & Girls.
The Korean Programming block will be airing Weeknights from 08:00pm to 09:00pm, and to be repeated at 12:00mn in Original Korean Audio with Subtitles, exclusively for ANIMAX Philippines and ANIMAX Malaysia.
One notable anime programme that will air next month is Kaze no Stigma.
SYNOPSIS (MyAnimeList.net): Yagami Kazuma was originally part of the Kannagi family, a respected family of fire users who have an affinity to fire. However, after being easily defeated by his cousin Ayano and having no talent whatsoever in fire magic, Kazuma is banished and casted out from his family. 4 years later, Kazuma finally returns to Japan, this time as an exceptionally powerful wind user. A series of murders on Kannagi family members have occurred with his arrival. While most of the family including Ayano is convinced Kazuma is the culprit, he honestly isn’t. These events begin an all out war against the Kannagi family, with Kazuma and Ayano right in the middle of it. Based on the novel by Takahiro Yamato.
Kaze no Stigma will premiere on ANIMAX on May 19 at Weeknights 07:30pm.
Also, JasmineAtAnimax has stated that there will be no changes in the Japanese Anime programme schedules, but the question still lingers… For How Long?
Last January 1st, ZEN Otaku Honbu has been rebranded as Anime Pilipinas.
New Name, but still has the same goal in going deeper into the Japanese Anime
& Pop-culture in the country and elsewhere in the world, from a Filipino standpoint.
