Mga AbeNatics, palaging nasa #1 Spot ang Time Quest dahil sa mga Kapuso natin Otaku na lagi tumatangkilik sa classic anime na ito.

Ayon sa GMA Astig Authority Facebook Page, napatunayan nila ang ratings at 7:30am timeslot ever since Ang Astig Authority Block na lagi kino-compete nila ang Kris TV at ang walang ka-kwenta-kwentang Team Animazing-kuno na puro 15 minutes pero walang matatalo ang Astig Authority kaya napapatunayan na ang Astig Authority ay tinaguriang “#1” Morning Block sa GMA.

as of April 10, 2015 from AGB Nielsen

10.5% ang ratings Time Quest habang 3.7% naman ang Kris TV

13.1% ang ratings ng Time Quest habang 4.5 naman ang Kris TV

Animes Return to ABS-CBN, But Problems Still Persist

ABS-CBN’s Team Animazing is back, but more problems await them.

Just one week into its run, ABS-CBN abruptly decided to remove the volleyball-themed anime ‘Haikyuu!!’ from the Umaganda lineup. In its place was the re-run of ‘Wansapanatym”s ‘My App Boyfie’, which currently airs as part of the seasonal version of ‘Wansapanatym’ called ‘WansapanaSummer’.

The pullout of ‘Haikyuu!!’ leaves ‘Naruto Shippuden’ as the lone remaining anime on the Umaganda block. The latter now airs after ‘Kris TV’, displacing the Filipino-dubbed Nickelodeon cartoon ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ in the process.

This sudden decision by ABS-CBN left anime fans boiling with anger. Reactions were overwhelmingly negative on social media, with some netizens questioning the motives behind ABS-CBN’s puzzling move.

Though ABS-CBN did promise to air ‘Haikyuu!!’ on a new timeslot soon (along with a new season of ‘Kuroko’s Basketball’), the bad blood over the pullout remains fresh from the minds of the Kapamilya anime fans. It was an unwise move on the part of ABS-CBN, simply because of the wrong timing surrounding the change.

The ‘Haikyuu!!’ row was the latest in a series of discouraging decisions involving ‘Team Animazing’. Just recently, ABS-CBN temporarily pulled out ‘Team Animazing’ in favor of Japanese adaptations of classic stories such as ‘Princess Sarah’, Cedie: Ang Munting Prinsipe’ and ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’.

For Kapamilya anime fans, the situation is simply demoralizing.

Things will only get worse once the NBA playoffs begin. ABS-CBN is expected air some playoff games on a delayed basis within the next two months, so anime fans will have to wait a little bit longer.

Right now, though, the pain of ‘Haikyuu!!’s sudden disappearance will have to be endured. Fans can only hope that the pain will dissipate once the Kapamilya network announces a new schedule for the said anime.
