ABS-CBN Lifestyle’s pop culture portal HERO has announced on their social media accounts on Saturday that cable channel Jeepney TV is expanding the HERO Zone anime block to Saturdays.

The Saturday afternoon airing of the anime block will be an encore presentation of the Sunday morning airing of the previous week.


In addition to the Sunday mornings, the block will now air Every Saturday afternoons, which will follow this schedule:

04:30pm to 05:30pm – KonoSuba: God’s blessing on this wonderful world!
05:30pm to 06:30pm – Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V


Filipino language anime channel HEROtv ceased its broadcast on February 1, reportedly due to lack of advertiser support. Sister channel TAG, which airs foreign movies dubbed in Filipino, closed down 17 days earlier.

ABS-CBN Lifestyle had taken-over HERO’s operations a week later, and revamped the social networking accounts as a “digital portal” for anime, pop culture and events.


Media conglomerate ABS-CBN’s cable entertainment channel Jeepney TV launched the anime block HERO Zone last month, with New Initial D the Movie and Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V as its first offering.

The popular comedy anime KonoSuba: God’s blessing on this wonderful world! started airing on the block on Sunday, April 1.

HERO also teased that the popular idol anime series Love Live! Sunshine!! and Makoto Shinkai’s top-grossing anime movie your name. are set to air on the time block soon.
