Filipino Animators create a Rody Duterte Fan Made Anime

El Presidente featured in Freelancer Philippines

I can't help but to admire this Fan-Made Anime created by Davao Nikkel Jin Anime Club and Bisaya Ball Community..

As an anime fan too, this is something that gives me a sense of pride. Not only because it features my favorite President of the Philippines, but it also showcases the versatility of the Filipino Animators.

It's a well-known fact, that many of the popular Anime's are drawn by Filipino Animators.

TOEI Animation themselves outsources their in between animation to the Filipino artists according to this article.

According to this report, 80% of the Animation production of the most popular anime's (like Dragon ball, Slam Dunk and One Piece) are outsourced to the Philippines.

The Philippines is this 3rd in the world in animation outsourcing according to Animation Council of the Philippines.

Freelancer Philippines - Philippines 3rd in Animation outsourcing

This is something to be proud of as a Filipino, because our talents are recognized world wide in this field. But a bit of sigh, that though we have this much talent, we still yet to have our own anime series. Until now, the Philippines has not yet established an ALL Filipino Animation series. Our talents only helps in producing Japan's Anime creations, but we still don't have our own creation.

Seeing this Rody Duterte Anime gives a bit of spark that Filipinos can actually create our very own Anime. Still hoping to see that day, that the Philippines based company will launch our own brand of animation to be recognized world-wide. It's one way of preserving our country's culture and nationalism.

  1. I never knew there was such a large Anime culture in the Philippines. As you say it something I always tend to associate with Japan. While it's not really my thing my son loves it and it constantly sketching. Great to see you promoting the local industry and you never know it may happen that there is an al Filipino series!

  2. I believe that Filipinos are talented. Sometimes though, they use those talents that create a bad impression. But going back, Filipinos arent leeft behind in showcasing their talents. i have a few friends who can really create great image manipulation and anime but sadly works in New Zeland and other parts of the world. It comes as a surprise that India comes in second though.

  3. Wow! Filipinos are into heroic style of anime so this must be well-supported. But wait, the music should be in Filipino? I wonder how it will sound. Haha. Cheers for Filipino Animators!

  4. Im not a fan of anime or any cosplay sort of.. But i do admire this! I agree, seeing this was like nakaka-proud. I do admire our President too for all that he is doing for our country today. May God bless the Phils.!

  5. That is so cool. It's not only Duterte who is there. Even Gen. Bato is there too. LOL! Yeah, creativity is something Filipinos are known for. It's time for the Pinoys to come up with quality shows and series and the locals should support din.

  6. This is something to be proud of! Even in Disney, there are Filipino animators. I just hope people could appreciate more local artists and support them. ☺️

  7. This is amazing. I love animation and I am planning to pursue a course in it. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. I haven't watched a lot of Anime myself. Though I'm familiar with some of the most well known anime's line Dragonball. It sounds like there's so much talent for this in the Philippines. I hope there be the chance to promote it more. Or maybe someone starts something up for anime. I think there are so many people who will like that.

  9. I love this fanmade anime! It did pinch me in the heart. The storyline shows our president's genuine love for us, and our genuine love for him. It also shows him being strong despite all the curve balls being thrown at him, just so he can protect his beloved country.

  10. Great that there are so many PH animators. I have tried to watch your video, but I couldn't understand. It was funny to see this however. It's such a different world than where I am from. Hope to see more soon!

  11. Filipinos are really talented. I'm happy to see the Philippines have a place in the animations. I guess we are not only creative people but we have a great sense of humor. :)
