REVIEW: Over the L’Arc~en~Ciel documentary joins you in their Rainbow Journey

Music documentary film that allows its cameras unfiltered and uncensored access to basically every nook and cranny of the artist has become a slow but steadily rising trend. From Celine Dion to Beyoncé and even One Direction, more and more artists are becoming the subjects of these docus which show not only the concert performance itself but also the process in which how they do it behind the scenes, all its highs and lows.

Kapag pinag-uusapan ang Japanese anime dito sa bansa, isa sa mga laging mainit na isyu ay ang pagda-dub nito sa Filipino. Ito rin umano ang tinitingnan na dahilan upang ang isang dubber o ang isang dubbing firm/production ay gawin ang mga improvement upang dalhin niya ito sa mga susunod nilang proyekto. Minsan, sa mata ng mga nasa loob ng isang TV network, ito ang ginagawang batayan kung ipapalabas ulit ang anime title na pinag-ukulan ng komentaryo o hindi na (madalas, hindi ito nangyayari). At ang pinaka-“worst case” sa mga nagdaang panahon, ginawa umanong batayan ito ng isang TV network para tuluyang tanggalin sa kanilang programming line-up ang kanilang anime block.

Marami man sa atin ang nawalan na ng pag-asa sa Free TV dahil sa paraan ng pagtrato nila sa mga ineere nilang mga anime titles, meron pa ring mga taong katulad ko ang patuloy na nagtitiyaga at umaasa na makakamit din natin ang tama, patas at makatarungang pagpapalabas sa mga anime titles.

A few weeks ago, GMA News TV's weekly infotainment program I JUANder tried to answer the question "Bakit Mahilig sa Cartoons si Juan?", or "Why do Filipinos like to watch cartoons?" Although it may have had the best of intentions, the feature did not go well as planned.
