Wazzup Pilipinas Radio 2nd Episode: Dissecting Anime and Cosplay in the Philippines

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We've just completed another episode of Wazzup Pilipinas Radio over 8Trimedia Network and broadcasted live on DZRJ 810 AM, plus livestreaming on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. The best about our show is that you can easily go back and watch the episode just in case you missed it, or is not an early riser as the 6 to 7 am time slot is indeed too early for a Sunday.

Wazzup Pilipinas Radio guests were Emerson Anthony Lacson, Ferrari Lacson and Ronald Guanzon from the Anime and Cosplay community. Thank you to my co-host, David D'Angelo (aka Master Pogi) for reaching out to these guys and inviting them to our show.

We've learned that the twins (Emerson and Ferrari) are very active in the cosplay community and had a very interesting past engagement with Ronald whom they consider as a major influence and mentor.

We heard Emerson talked about his cosplay of John Wick (Keanu Reeves) while his twin brother cosplays Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), and a surprise re-launch of We Are Anime (WAA) from Ronald Guanzon, who is the man behind its popularity way back when anime was just starting in the country. You could consider him as a pioneer of the anime community in the Philippines. He even showed us an image of an anime character he named as "Waa" of which I jokingly said it could also be called as Waa-zzup Pilipinas!

Wow is just not enough to express our appreciation of the discussion of many topics as they express their thoughts and opinions about the community. They should return for a part two of our discussion as the topics are almost endless. I'm sure many are interested in finding out more about anime and cosplay.

Not too surprised, we've learned that similar to the blogging community, there are also bashers lurking within the Cosplay community. But again, their recommendation is to ignore their detractors, or maybe just say your piece to explain since many will consider silence as admission to guilt. They admit they are not perfect, but it does not give others an excuse to bash them. However, we should thrive amidst negativities, and make it as our driving force to encourage ourselves to do our best and prove them wrong.

Needless to say, critics will always be there no matter which field you belong to. ...and there will always be some people who would see themselves as above others just to brand themselves as "top."

Congratulations also to my co-host, David, for their very successful Pinoy Otaku Festival 2017 held at the Fairview Terraces during the previous weekend (May 20 and 21). I've read a lot of positive feedback and testimonials as thousands of people flocked their event. Kudos to David for still showing up at the Wazzup Pilipinas radio show to co-host even though he was tired and sleepless from the Saturday (first day of their event). I'm glad I picked him to be my co-host.

Thank you to our guests, Emerson, Ferrari and Ronald (RG) for gracing the second episode of our show. You guys are awesome! Keep in touch and see you again soon!!!

Of course, we would like to thank our producer, Pocholo De Leon Gonzales, the one and only Voicemaster (and Pochologist) of the Philippines. You're the best man! Thank you for your trust in us.
