In case you’re unfamiliar, Barangay 143 is an anime series created by co-produced between Synergy88 (Philippines), TV Asahi (Japan), and August Media Holdings (Singapore). The anime series is about basketball–the Philippines’ favorite sport, and it tells a coming-of-age story.
Specifically, Barangay 143 follows the story of a young Korean boy named Bren whose search for his father brings him to the Philippines. Once he arrives in the country, Bren finds himself bonding with an unlikely band of misfits, and they aim to bring glory to their hometown through basketball.
Barangay 143 features a voice cast that consists of renowned Filipino actors, including Cherie Gil, John Arcilla, Julie Ann San Jose, Kelley Day, Migo Adacer, and Ruru Madrid.
Aside from an anime series, Synergy88 also has a mobile game called Barangay 143: Street League that’s out now on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
