BREAKING: Philippine Television copies anime, sailor fuku, and video games!

By bluemist on March 11th, 2007

Lupin live action (yes you’re hearing that right), A Super Twins live action (with Sailormoon-like costumes), and Asian Treasures (homage to adventure series)… JUST WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE PHILIPPINES WHILE I WASN’T AROUND!?!?!

Super Twins
Asian Treasures

How low can it get? I really love Philippine… piracy. They copy all great ideas from all around the world and turn it either into a load of junk… or a freaking huge load of junk.

Now we start with the official and longest bastardization of the Lupin (not just an anime, it’s a French novel serial) character ever made to live action. You know it’s gonna suck, but I also know people are gonna dig it like wildfire. Lupin III as an anime is pretty popular over there, and that actor is a a sure box-office hit even if he really doesn’t know how to act.

And then we go to the Sailormoon piracy, where we see two little lolis transform into magical girls in sailor suits. I wouldn’t want to guess the great impact this show will have to our fashion industry… will it FINALLY succumb to the Japanese fetish? Will I finally see meido cafes in the Philippines? (Apparently there is one already) Will sailor fuku be the new fashion? I don’t wanna look. I really don’t.

And the least interesting to me is the National Treasure spoof with Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. It’s really that obvious.

See folks, this is the “best” our local television can do… copy stuff. The next time maybe little Harry Potter won’t be safe any longer… or maybe we would start acquiring manga/anime licenses from Japan and make them into live action (like Chinese and Taiwanese do). I personally want to dare them try Cardcaptor Sakura. I dare them. A new costume every episode please. Or maybe Naruto, after all we are a country of Narutards, us. We are Taekwondo experts, maybe we can delve on ninja too right?

Ahh, I want to let off steam with all the crazy television, please let me just stay here in Japan for some more years.

I’m so ashamed of our entertainment industry.

offtopic but just want to share these information:

GMA Network is also remaking two other foreign material. The first one is the Mexican tv series Marimar, title role originally played by Mexican suppersttar Thalia. According to reports Angel Locsin is eyed to play the title role.

The other one is the super sentai show Shaider and Marky Cielo is going to play the title role.

So guys whatcha think?

I said “Not all Filipinos are dumb enough to get fooled by the entertanment there” Meaning, Filipinos CAN do Better, IF “they” TRY and Most Filipinos are NOT Stupid enough to fall for shows that are nothing more than copies from foreign countries. Sadly, the shows you recomened me, Lupin: Sucks, Richard doesn’t play a good Role. Asian Treasures: Rip-off of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft.

Once again, NOT ORIGINAL.

Sad, another thing is: WELCOME TO REALITY. NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME OPINIONS, ITS JUST LIKE HOW SOMEONE IS DISSING ME, INSTEAD OF IGNORING MY OPINION. Oh please, don’t even relate to other nations `cause at least they can still be better off than “shows” there. I’ve yet to see and hear more better things coming from them. Especially the need to see something original. And so what if this certain someone I claimed to suck at English? Just look at what that tart said about racist, and relating it to those who are giving bad criticisms. Don’t tell me it’s because “Pilipino siya” since *ahem* I’m one too – same for you, and because you point out my “attitude” (when it’s actually just a response, fart face) just goes to show who has a suckier “attitude”. Attitude. On computer. LMAO. No matter the response on computers, everyone just communicates by words typed down. Hmm, somebody’s taking it seriously to the point that the words can be “felt” through their emotional state.

[quote] If ever the Filipino version is patterned after the French novel then why would it reek stupidity and suckiness? [end quote]

Duh! Lacking O-R-I-G-I-N-A-L-I-T-Y. I don’t care if other countries do that; I’m just saying the twerps responsible for making shows there should use their brain more to make up something that is uniquely derived from there, like how anime is uniquely from Japan, which made them world-renown along with their technologies. I’m not concerned about other nations; anyone bring that up again is going off topic just to defend their views. I have my own, you all have yours as well. And I posted here just for that (with of course the inclusion that “someone” who claimed some here are “racist” when it’s only about “things to be/being aired for the masses”).

What is so hard about creating good story plots, improving acting skills and choosing better potential artists (or picking which person suits the role of a character better)? What these shows have are no good improvements. IF you can call it “improvements”. If they can’t do better, then they shouldn’t even be in showbiz. What they’re doing is not even baby steps. It’s more like when babies eat food then poo them out in all it’s glory of bright rainbow colors.

I totally Agree with Florian. There is a difference between Racist and Opinions. Seriously, She pointed out everything and I bet those guys didn’t even read the other half of her first comment here. Besides, Florian isn’t even forcing anyone to watch these shows. To her, she doesn’t like it, and it is a fact that us Filipinos can do better then what we are doing now.

Posted By: Sweet Candy On: July 16, 2007 At: 8:55 am

To me, I agree also with Florian. She isn’t a racist, think of it this way, she thinks Filipinos can make better movies, music, and shows then what they are doing now. Sounds more like an encouragement to me.

English is a very difficult language for the likes of them. Heheheh. Lol, like this:

[quote]The LupinIII there doesn’t even need to follow the anime version and do the French novel type and it would still reek of stupidity and suckiness.[end quote] (I did not say anything about them directly copying out of the novel, I said they don’t have to since they’ll still look stupid due to GMA’s current state. But what did Butthurt say? Assuming I said they’re 100% copying the Novel ahahaha! I answered anyway though.)

[quote]But the problem is people tend to support more of foreign material than ours and that’s exactly why these shows appears to be low profile tv series for them. [end quote]
Yeah, because they suck. Didn’t I just say that some can’t help it that they’ve seen better?

[quote]My point is, if you can’t give praise to the show then a sympathy will be fine enough just to show that you support them and not neglect them so as yourselves being a filipino. [end quote]
Pfft. Just do that if one is Filipino? What about receiving messages from non-Filipinos? Sympathy them yourself. If they keep it up the way they get duller and duller, they will get what they don’t want (neglect).

[quote]That’s what they need, praises, critisms, or just sympathy, anything to show them that people support them and not neglecting, banning, or vindicating them. [end quote]
Sympathy again? Sounds like that’s what you really want than the other choices given. (For proof and analysis, see #33 & #36) Posters already knew that, why say it? I too, was giving my part, but what did YOU do? You and that other tart try to diss me, assuming you know what I’m like when you don’t (not that you have any sort of Fantaserye powers anyway). I was merely pointing out Vailbutt’s opinion flawed. And since he is prejudging the owner of this page, I did the same as a backfire (didn’t respond back either; sounds like this person got butthurt). And if I have a so-called disease, all three of you have Race Pride Complexity, low-English Comprehension Syndrome, FFSTA (Foolishness For Supporting Talentless Actors) and FFLTHS (Foolishness For Liking These Horrid Shows – can also apply to movies). Loldongs.

We can’t deny the fact that cartoons of this type are very popular with children. As for me, all the characters of such animations are alike… I can’t differentiate between them.

the standard of filipino tv im sorry
its extremely bad.

don’t get me wrong, filipinos are very talented
but most of them have been snapped up by other countries and there are more chances of being paid more overseas (abroad for you american term using people)

Posted By: Jenna On: December 26, 2007 At: 8:18 pm

Here and there there are so many TV shows that are similar to each other. They are copied if they are popular among TV viewer. It is the main thing in this business.

I hate filipino entertainment. Its a good thing there is cable.

And now for the latest in the long line of “let’s copy a show and throw away unnecessary things such as a believable storyline, good script writing, originality and in-depth research”! From the makers of such epically bad classics as Lupin the 3rd Pinoy version, Super Twins and Zaito! HERE COMES ZORRO!!!
