Asian partners help anime cast broader spell outside Japan

TV Asahi has local help in bringing "Barangay 143" to Filipinos' television screens.

TOKYO -- Japanese anime companies are stepping up collaborative efforts with partners in greater Asia to tailor content to audiences there and ease the process of obtaining approval from local authorities.

TV Asahi, the company behind the famous "Doraemon" cartoons about a schoolboy and a robotic cat from the future, is working on its first televised anime series specifically targeting the Philippines. It is cooperating with a local animation and game developer, the Synergy88 group.
