The Philippine’s Anime Authority will once again regain control of the kingdom, Because the TV5 AniMEGA is back!
According to UkiyaSeed, our partner, there was an image graphic shown during “BEN 10” last July 31, saying “Magbabalik na ang ANiMEGA!”, but unlike what people had expected which was a primetime anime block, it will air Every Saturdays. It will start on August 07, Next saturday, from 11:00am to 03:00pm. The question now is, What will be the New AniMEGA line-up?
AZUMANGA DAIOH which was previously with Lucky Star will be carried over to the New AniMEGA block and will be made two (2) episodes back-to-back at 11am, then the return of D.GRAY-MAN, which is one of the most popular anime programme aired on TV5 since it was aired last year, followed by FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD which also one of the most popular anime programme aired on TV5. And lastly…
The Most Anticipated Anime, and One of the Most Popular Anime aired in 2007 in Japan, and a part of the biggest anime franchise in the world… And it is now on TV5! MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM 00!
For those who are not familiar with the popular series, here’s a synopsis:
It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built, each under control by the Union (formerly United States of America), the Human Reformist Alliance (Russia, China and India) and the AEU (Europe). However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war.
Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious non-profit military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tieria Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the other various factions. (–MyAnime List)
