Although the Filipino anime series Trese doesn’t premier until June 10th, Netflix released a behind the scenes look of the show. The short video has Trese leads, Shay Mitchell and Liza Soberano who are playing Alexandra Trese, a detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin. Mitchell will voice Trese in the English version while Soberano takes the lead in the Filipino version. To have this anime available in both language is a big deal to reach a wider audience while staying authentic to the stories’ origins. Hearing snippets of scenes in Tagalog will send chills up your spine as it adds another level of eeriness but beautiful to hear. Both actresses are excited to share this project with the world.
Shay Mitchell describes Trese as “based on a graphic novel that’s set in modern day Manila that uses Filipino folklore to tell its stories.” While Liza Soberano describes the character Alexandria Trese “as a female detective who’s the protector of peace and harmony between the living and supernatural beings who coexist in the Philippines.” With all the twists and turns, the anime series will keep you on the edge of your seat. Stream it starting June 10 on Netflix and learn more about superstitious beliefs that have been a part of Filipino folklore for ages.
