But schedules had gone awry.
HEROtv has released their April line-up, but it came from a different source. Instead of putting it on their official website, the shows & the schedules were first released on SkyCable’s website.
Titles to be aired for next month are Koutetsu Sangokushi, Lovely Idol, One Outs, and Anime feature films such as Metropolis, and Paprika.
But here’s the catch, included among the anime titles that will be aired are two Columbia Pictures’ animated movies Surf’s Up and Monster House that , persumably will be dubbed in Filipino.
This month also, HEROtv will adopt a scheduling scheme that for the first time, will be a bit different from what they have always done in the past as some animes will start airing for two times a day until sometime later in the month which will air once.
Here are the synopsis and the schedules as taken from the SkyCable website.

In the near future, a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment called PT has been invented. Through a device called the “DC Mini” it is able to act as a “dream detective” to enter into people’s dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts. Before the government can pass a bill authorizing the use of such advanced psychiatric technology, one of the prototypes is stolen, sending the research facility into an uproar. In the wrong hands, the potential misuse of the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer’s personality while they are asleep. Renowned scientist, Dr. Atsuko Chiba, enters the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, code name “PAPRIKA,” in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention.
