Three-hour animation mega-block starts December 26.
The year might be drawing to a close, but for Studio 23, it’s just getting started.
ABS-CBN’s secondary local channel announced through its Facebook page that they will be airing six anime and cartoon series back-to-back starting December 26 (Monday), and airs Weekdays from 4:00 to 7:00pm MNL, unless pre-empted by special sports programming.
The list of anime Studio 23 is set to premiere, with their respective show times, includes You’re Under Arrest (4:00pm), Princess Resurrection (4:30pm), and Kiba (5:00pm). Soul Eater, which already premiered on Studio 23 a few months ago, will return at 5:30pm. These titles, which first premiered on ABS-CBN and/or HEROtv, will be aired in Tagalog dub.
These shows will join the soccer-themed animation series Supa Strikas and anime series Samurai X, both currently airing at 6:00pm and 6:30pm respectively.
YOU’RE UNDER ARREST
Tokyo Highway Patrolwomen Natsumi and Miyuki get off to a bad start when Miyuki busts Natsumi for reckless moped driving on her way to work. Things get worse when they find out they’re going to be partners!
A continuation of the OVA series, the adventures of Tokyo policewomen Natsumi and Miyuki continue in the You’re Under Arrest TV series. It’s back to Bokuto Precinct, where demented felons and bashful (but hunky) policemen abound, and where the cutest girl in the office… isn’t a girl. (Synopsis from Rightstuf via MyAnimeList.net)
Since Hiro Hiyorimi’s parents died, he and his sister Sawawa have lived apart. Now, Sawawa has gotten a new job as the caretaker of a creepy old mansion, and has sent Hiro a letter asking him to come and stay there with her. Finding the mansion boarded up and apparently empty, Hiro wanders around town looking for Sawawa. Instead, he runs into the new resident of the mansion, and ends up pushing her out of the way of some falling steel beams. Unfortunately, he loses his own life in the process. Luckily, or perhaps unluckily, the person he thought he saved turns out to be a princess of the monster kingdom, and she grants him a second life…but only for as long as he will be her servant.
