The staff of Barangay 143 — the Philippine-targeted basketball television anime by August Media Holdings, Synergy 88, and TV Asahi — revealed in a press event last Wednesday that the anime will premiere on the GMA Network on October 21 at 10:00 a.m., and will air a new episode every Sunday.
Synergy88 describes the anime:
Barangay 143 is a gritty story where the stakes are high, about never giving up and a game called life. Bren Park who loves basketball rejects his destiny to become a great player when tragedy strikes his family. He swears never to play basketball again and journeys to the Philippines where he finds his way back to himself, his heart and the game. In Manila, legendary basketball coach, Coach B seeks justice for the death of his son. He begins by using the very game that took his son from him, to find the culprits and bring down a syndicate. But he needs a captain, a leader who will take his ragtag team of misfit players to victory. Tied by their tragic loss and by the game that took everything away from them, Bren and Coach B soon through basketball find peace, justice, forgiveness, redemption and love.
TV Asahi is collaborating with Philippine animation and game developer Synergy88. TV Asahi is handling character design and direction on the Japanese side, while Synergy88 is writing the scripts and handling production.
