Anime Shows That Made Pinoys Ask For More
Little wonder that most of these anime shows are exports from Japan. From the time when robots seem to have invaded the consciousness of young Pinoys in the much-ballyhoed stories as Mazinger Z and Voltes V to today, the talent of the Japanese in putting characters to life have been unequaled in the world. Just call it a way for them to give back what they took during the WWII days.
