Anime Pilipinas

Shin Jalothot is a Correspondent of Anime Pilipinas, who is responsible for pitching and writing news stories about the latest happenings in the international Japanese anime and pop culture scene.

He also covers special events locally and is responsible for writing general event reports.


As a 90’s kid, Shin grew up in the Golden Age of Anime on Free TV, having watched classic shows like Digimon Adventure, Fushigi Yuugi, and Magic Knight Rayearth, among others.

He also grew up when Super Sentai shows are still being aired on terrestrial network RPN, with Chojin Sentai Jetman and Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman being his childhood heroes.

However, his love for Japanese anime was temporarily put to a halt when he entered high school. It was eventually rekindled late in his college years upon stumbling upon one episode of his now favorite anime, Fairy Tail.

In fact, he can still fondly remember that particular episode being aired on ANIMAX Asia that made him watch the entire series.

Since then, he became an avid fan of Hiro Mashima’s greatest work to date, forever holding a special place in his heart. This is despite all the cringe-worthy antics Fairy Tail is known for, in which even he wouldn’t dare to contest.

However, his love for the show has remained undying, eventually leading to another hobby and a long-time dream of his: toy collecting.


Aside from Fairy Tail, he also prefers watching shows under the adventure and drama/slice of life genres, taking a particular liking to anime titles such as Magi, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Anohana, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi (ERASED), and Orange, among others.

Shin’s love for anime also fueled his desire to visit Japan someday, further developing strong interest in the country’s language, culture, fashion, and anything related to the home of his favorite anime shows.


As a graduate of journalism, he is striving to establish a name in the field of anime journalism. He believes that his passion in anime and writing will eventually be able to earn him a living and more importantly, contribute in the improvement of this tiny community.
