The fun and engaging nature of anime has contributed to the popularity of Japanese culture in the Philippines, and we at the site are happy to see that schools can foster this enthusiasm among their students. We got to witness this firsthand as Animax, Asia’s first channel brand specializing in Japanese animation, got to hold OO-kun School Tour Adventure at Chiang Kai Shek College in Manila. With lots of games, giveaways, contests and surprises, it was indeed an adventure into learning, fun and excitement as the studentry shared its fascination for anime, cosplay, and Japanese culture.
