About Us

Anime Pilipinas offers news & views about Anime, Manga, Cosplay, and Japanese Pop-culture from a Filipino perspective.

APN is committed to bring the Latest Anime News, the Fearless Viewpoints and the Insightful Features that the Filipino anime fan needs to know about the fandom and the community. 


Our Humble Beginnings 

Anime Pilipinas was known as ZEN Otaku Honbu, which started off as a message boards made by anime fans to talk about the latest anime news and issues. ZENHonbu evolved into a news blogsite, and in 2010 started to deliver the biggest anime news, plus insightful views from the same team who ran the message boards.

ZENHonbu made its presence felt in social media, and later on gave anime fans not only the latest breaking news reports and exclusive scoops, but also stories that are relevant, thought provoking and sets the agenda for intelligent discussion.

Over time, ZENHonbu—working hand in hand with its partners and friends—delivered up-to-the-minute reports on the biggest anime events in the country, from simple live blogging and social media sharing, to the first live audio stream of an anime event.


A Continuing Evolution. 

In 2014, ZENHonbu transformed into Anime Pilipinas, with the same firebrand journalism we were known for, now bringing in a much deeper insight in the anime scene, whether in the Philippines or across the globe.

Today, Anime Pilipinas is not only just an anime news website, but is also a platform for everyone to discuss their viewpoints and opinions. Through its newly-redesigned, mobile-responsive website, Our aim is to give you the stories first whenever and wherever you are on any platform, while giving you the voice to share your thoughts on our social media websites.


Anime Pilipinas is also there at the biggest anime events in the country, providing context and color to the readers like how we cover them.

APN is available on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media websites.
