Source: Kirarin dubbed a long time ago, didn’t premiere on any of ABS-CBN’s channels.
ZEN Otaku Honbu has learned from very reliable sources that the shoujo anime Kirarin Revolution has premiered and is airing right now on YEY!, one of ABS-CBN’s Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) subchannels.
According to the sources, who asked not to be identified due to their lack of authority to speak on the matter, Kirarin Revolution is included in YEY‘s program schedule, but the schedule is still unknown since ABS-CBN’s DTT service is still in its testing phase.
A source also told ZEN that Kirarin Revolution finished dubbing a long time ago, but for some unknown reason did not premiere on Terrestrial Channel 02, Studio 23 or the Cable TV anime channel HEROtv.
YEY! is a children-oriented channel included in ABS-CBN’s Digital Terrestrial TV lineup, along with the movie channel CineMo, simulcasts of Channel 02, Studio 23, DZMM TeleRadyo, MYX, and Knowledge Channel.
ABS-CBN’s DTT service is currently undergoing household tests in parts of Pampanga and Bulacan. The network will use this year’s 22nd Philippine Advertising Congress as an opportunity to orient advertisers on the new technology and channels.
Kirari Tsukishima is a beautiful yet gluttonous 14-year-old girl. While those around her are worshipping the popular idol duo, SHIPS, she only devotes herself to food. One day, however, Kirari, who is dense when it comes to the matters of the heart, encounters Seiji Hiwatari of SHIPS and falls in love with him at first sight. In order to be with him, she aspires to become an idol herself. With the help of SHIPS – the gentle Seiji and the bad-mouth Hiroto Kazama – and her cat mascot Naa-san, Kirari pursues the entertainment world, where she discovers that being an idol is not all fun and games, and that in order to persevere in both her love and her career, she must overcome any challenges that fortune has in store.
