Pinoy animated basketball series Barangay 143 has captured another international recognition, this time, from the Asian Television Award.
The Philippine-made anime series bagged the Asian Television Award for Best 2D Animated Programme in ceremonies held on January 10, 2020, at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila.
Barangay 143, the first Filipino basketball anime series which first aired on GMA-7 in October 2018, is produced by Synergy 88 Entertainment, Japan’s TV Asahi, and Singapore’s August Media Holdings.
The series tells the story of a Korean boy named Bren who went to the Philippines to search for his father.
The synopsis goes: “Lost and desperate for answers, he finds an unlikely family in a team of misfits whose only ambition is to bring glory to their hometown. It’s a story about love and family set against the action-packed world of street basketball, where the stakes are always high and life is the biggest game you can win.”
The award-winning Filipino animated series used the voices of local seasoned actors such as Cherie Gil, Edu Manzano, and John Arcilla. It also featured the voices of a younger generation of Filipino artists, namely, Ruru Madrid, Kelly Day, Julie Ann San Jose, and Migo Adecer.
In October last year, Barangay 143 snagged Best Animated Program or Series at the 2019 Asian Academy Creative Awards.
