5 Natural Reasons That Entice You To Watch Trese

7:56:00 AM


Okay, from the moment that the news of having a Pinoy animated series taken from the comic book series, things have been inviting already. People are giving their different opinions and thoughts on how it will go. It even adds up when Liza Soberano was the news as the voice of Alexandra Trese in the Filipino version.

I have not read about the comic book, but I'm very excited to watch it already. But, because I slept early than usual, I missed the midnight release. Before I watch the series, I want to share my five natural reasons why viewers and enthusiasts like me, are enticed to watch this new Pinoy anime series Trese presented by Netflix.

  • The first reason is that it is now part of the pop culture that Pinoys are talking about. Basically, if it is a topic that people are chatting with almost everywhere, people get curious. Like what they say, curiosity kills.
  • The second reason, Trese is presented in animation or anime. A more popular way of showing odd stories without compromising the value in the story. Creators tend to be bolder in the portrayal of the characters and scenarios.
  • The third reason that I can share without seeing or reading it is that it presents intriguing folk stories representing the Filipino culture.
  • The fourth reason, hey if you're a Filipino I'm sure you would love to know more about our culture and stories of the things the lurks in the dark.
  • And lastly, the fifth reason, we're Filipinos so let us support and love the works of our Kababayan!

So, there you go and I'm now off to watching it. Oh before I forget Shay Mitchell dubs the voice of Alexandra Trese in the English version.

Even to a small clear area that is enough to dribble around can be court to play at for the kids. It's not about the rules of area but it is about the play itself, the intensity of playing with the other opponent.
