The country’s number one anime channel is turning its sights to the Philippines’ very own animated characters this month of August, when its special production “Comics on Cam” will be premiering on Hero TV.

“Comics on Cam” will be showcasing classic Pinoy comic book characters and putting them back into action through the channel’s motion comics. Gear up to meet original local comic legends this August 24 at 12:00pm before Hero Theatrixx.

Also hitting local screens this month is the hit show “Yuyushiki,” a series about three lovely girls and their daily randomness and wacky humor at their data processing club. Catch it on weekdays at 8:00pm, with replays at 2:00am, 8:00am, and 2:00pm.
