Generations of superheroes have come and gone in the history of Philippine shows, each leaving a distinct impact and legacy among viewers.
This year, ANIMA, one of the creative business units of tradigital entertainment company KROMA Entertainment, adds a fresh batch to this super roster as it gears up for the launch of a new superhero-themed series.
As the go-to resource for daring and creator-focused content, ANIMA unveils five new superheroes who will alter the course of mankind in the show Ero, which kicked off via ANIMA’s official Youtube channel this month. Its first three episodes dropped, fittingly, on August 29, National Heroes Day. Succeeding episodes will air every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
In the 10-episode series directed by Joel Ferrer and Miko Livelo, five random misfits from a superhero academy become unlikely superheroes as they discover their “useless” powers.
Bannered by Gabbi Garcia as Malaya, Markus Paterson as Titan, Alex Diaz as Asher, Anikka Camaya as Hazel, and Dylan Ray Talon as Biboy, they will personify the powers of contact destruction, immortality, time travel, super richness, and illusionism.
As seen in its trailer, the Ero crew will train on harnessing their abilities for the greater good while also learning the fundamentals of controlling them. In their quest to conquer villains and confront challenges, they will strive to surpass the greats that have come before them, and seek their place in greater heights.
“In order to maintain our efforts of breaking into the new era of entertainment, our desire is to keep expanding our portfolio by filling every possible category and genre with fresh, original material that only the talents and creatives of ANIMA can deliver,” said ANIMA Managing Director Bianca Balbuena. “We’re very thrilled that we will be able to show Ero to a wider audience for free through our youtube channel. This is for all school misfits. You are your own superhero.”
ANIMA continues to claim recognition for its numerous platforms that deliver sensational and groundbreaking content be it in film, podcasts, or video production. With Ero, the creative studio further reinforces its formidable presence in the entertainment industry.
