Now here’s another one for the books, and something that can be bragged everywhere.
Davao Nikkei Jin Anime Club and Bisayaball collaborated for an anime-styled opening sequence featuring, yes, you guessed it, President Rodrigo Duterte, complete with Japanese OP song for the truly authentic Japanese Anime feel.
Titled as EL PRESIDENTE – フイリピン火影 (The Philippine Hokage), the Fil-Japanese people of Davao sure know their skills.
Too bad key elements of the Duriam fandom wasn’t in it (that school sequence doesn’t have Miram Defensor Santiago in it, sadly), but hey, for a fanmade, it was quite good. It uses Naruto Shippuden’s OP music 16 titled ‘Silhouette’ by KANA-BOON though.
There were also OP eyecandies that are levels David Animation is on.
That’s Duterte’s simplistic and nondescript house.
Everyone can remember this, everyone egged him to run for President yet he wasn’t into it until months later.
His San Beda tenure, or a Duriam shoutout. Probably the former, since no one resembling Miram Defensor Santiago is there.
The presidential campaign that was quite controversial yet memorable.
Not one of the ogliarchs saw his victory coming.
The vice-president that was never to be, because he had to whoop ass in the Senate for Duterte’s sake.
Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa, in his glorious animefication.
…with the classic ‘KIRA’, Yeah.
Why does that obviously female green monster with brown hair look suspiciously familar? Have I seen her somewhere?
The terrorists, nuff said.
Guess what that scenery’s yellow, and who’s in the background.
This is a play on how Abe was more than enthusiastic about meeting Duterte, and how he became a really popular figure in Japanese talk shows.
Three stars and a sun. In an anime-styled video. Francis Magalona is going to cry if he was only alive right now.
