posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Also: Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal anime's 2nd part to air on May 14

Philippine television channel HERO TV began streaming a video on Wednesday that revealed that it will air the 91 Days, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, and the second part of the Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal anime in May.

The original anime 91 Days is set during the United States' Prohibition Era in the 1930s, and centers on Angelo Laguza. Angelo's parents and younger brother were murdered by his father's mafioso compatriots in a power play by capo Vincente Vanetti. As the sole survivor, Angelo has since lived a life of drifting emptiness, before an anonymous letter on his doorstep tips him off to the identity of his family's killers. Driven by revenge, Angelo heads back to his hometown, reconnects with an old friend, and attempts to get in the good graces of the Vanetti family to strike when they least expect it. Angelo's actions will be the genesis of a bloody gang war lasting 91 days that will test his resolve.

The anime premiered in Japan last July. HERO TV will premiere the anime on May 25.

Hiro Kaburaki (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, Kimi ni Todoke - From Me to You, My Little Monster) directed the series at studio Shuka (Durarara!!×2). Taku Kishimoto (ERASED, Haikyu!!, Magi: Adventure of Sinbad) served as the series script supervisor, Tomohiro Kishi (My Little Monster) designed the characters and served as chief animation director, and Shōgo Kaida (S.A, The Betrayal Knows My Name) produced the music. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure performed the opening theme song "Signal," and ELISA performed the ending theme song "Rain or Shine."

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu adapts Yūsaku Igarashi's otaku romance comedy light novel about a boy who discovers that his high school's most unattainable girl is a secret otaku.

HERO TV will premiere the anime on May 26. The anime premiered in July 2008, and it received a second series titled Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza in 2009, and an OVA titled Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Finale in 2012.

Munenori Nawa (D.C.S.S. ~Da Capo Second Season~, Kiss×sis) directed the series. Tsuyoshi Tamai (Inukami!, Strike Witches) supervised the series' scripts, and Satoshi Ishino (Excel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy) designed the characters. Studio Barcelona (which eventually reformed into diomedéa afterward) animated the series.

The four-episode Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal OVA is a prequel to the Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin) television anime, and it begins in protagonist Kenshin's childhood. The anime follows him as he is captured by slavers, and as he eventually survives to meet the master who would teach him his signature style of swordsmanship. Kenshin eventually runs away, forsaking his duty to fight his master to join the burgeoning Boshin War on the side of the Imperial restorationists with the aim of preventing more tragedies that resulted in his lot in life. In this conflict, he earns his reputation as the merciless assassin Battousai.

The OVA debuted in 1999. HERO TV will premiere the second part of the anime on May 14, with an encore on April 28. HERO TV aired the first part of the anime on April 23.

HERO TV began airing Samurai X with a new Tagalog dub on December 29. The original 95-episode television anime series ran from 1996 to 1998. ABS-CBN premiered the anime in the Philippines in 1999. QTV also aired the anime in 2006.
