Hero TV ‘vocalizes’ OPM lead artists

With the success of the Voltes V Evolution in using an all-star cast of “voicers”, anime fanatics are now up for an even bigger breakthrough as Hero TV once again taps celebrity dubbers, but this time, vocalists from popular OPM bands to voice characters in the newest musical anime series, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad.

Premiering this April 14 on Hero TV, Beck is certain to be an anime hit as it features the voices of OPM band icons: Rivermaya’s Rico Blanco, Sandwich’s Raymund Marasigan, The Dawn’s Jet Pangan, Rocksteddy’s Teddy Corpus, Six Cycle Mind’s Ney Dimaculangan, and Sponge Cola’s Yael Yuzon. Beck’s lead character will be voiced by the Little Big Star Big Division Champion and emerging teen heartthrob Sam Concepcion. Joining him to give voice to his character’s love interest in the anime series is a budding teen celebrity Stephanie Cuevas from the ongoing musical stage play High School Musical.


Hero TV’s belief in Beck – and the clever gimmick of using rockstar celebrity dubbers – is backed up by the fact that Beck is a monster hit in Japan. It follows the story of a 14-year old boy who lives a boring and uninteresting life, until that day when he saves a strange dog. From this point on the boy gets involved in the rock band of a wild and unpredictable guitarist, and he soon finds himself with a new life as a member of this band that is yet to hit the music scene.

Aside from its appealing story and production twists (use of celebrity dubbers), Beck will definitely be remembered through its catchy theme song “Hit In The USA” as popularized by Beat Crusaders. You can also catch the Beck experience near you through several mall shows that will be conducted in March and April.

Watch Beck on Hero TV, the no. 1 anime channel among kids, teens and young adults that ranks in the top 10 most watched cable channels. Get updates constantly by tuning in to Hero TV Channel 44 in Metro Manila and in over 250 cable systems nationwide.


Beck

Airing Date:

April 14 – July 14, 2007, Saturdays & Sundays[11am with a replay in the evening(7:30pm) airing].

The Characters of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad

  • Yukio (Koyuki) Tanaka: VOICED BY LITTLE BIG STAR FIRST BIG EDITION WINNER SAM CONCEPCION

The main character, a 14 year old talented but very reserved boy. The series follows his rapid development from an average person to an outstanding guitarist. Being extremely polite, he cannot help but let others push him around, a possible metaphoric stereotype on the very proper and manner conscious Japanese society. The last member of BECK, he is the second guitarist and vocalist. Yukio has a very beautiful voice that is mostly used for Beck’s slower songs. He owns a Fender Telecaster

  • Ryusuke (Ray) Minami: VOICED BY RIVERMAYA’S RICO BLANCO

A Japanese character with a long history in America. He speaks fluent English, and frequently uses both Japanese and English in his conversation. He lives alone in a shack by the fishing pond. His skills and taste in music inspire Koyuki to take up the guitar. His talent in playing the guitar and writing songs is unparalled. The band’s creator, Ryusuke is BECK’s lead guitarist and band leader. A once younger Ryusuke and Eddie Lee stole the Lucille (a very famous guitar named after a woman) from the boot of Syke’s vehicle. This begins a deeper backstory of Ryusuke’s character.

  • Saitou Ken’ichi: VOICED BY THE DAWN’S JET PANGAN

Koyuki’s guitar and swimming teacher. Saitou once swam in the Olympics but was unable to achieve his dream of winning so he turned his life to teaching others how to swim better. Saitou is loud and demanding in public, and especially strict when it comes to swimming. But when he is out of the water, he is much more open, even turning Koyuki for advice on his attractions to Momo. Saitou is a fan of British rock and his favorite band in the anime is the fictional Rocket Boys while in the manga, it’s the Beatles.

  • Taira Yoshiyuki: VOICED BY SANDWICH’S RAYMUND MARASIGAN

The first recruited member of BECK, Taira is the bassist, and the most talented band member next to Ryusuke. Little is known about him, and his attitude may sometimes come off as uncaring. He has been seen working as a traffic officer.

  • Chiba Tsunemi: VOICED BY ROCKSTEDDY’S TEDDY CORPUZ

Main vocalist for BECK, he is the key member that Ryusuke needed to bring Taira into the band. Compared to Koyuki, his voice is more punk- and rock-oriented, like the majority of the band’s songs. He also named the band “BECK,” inspired by Ryusuke’s dog.


  • Yuji Sakurai: VOICED BY SPONGECOLA’S YAEL YUZON

The fourth member to join, he was also Koyuki’s first good friend, sticking with him even when the school bully and his gang beat him up for breaking the silent treatment on Koyuki. He is the drummer, inspired by his brother and replaces the original drummer of BECK who followed Ryusuke from his original band, Serial Mama.

  • Eiji: VOICED BY 6 CYCLE MIND’S NEY DIMACULANGAN

Originally in Ryusuke’s first band Serial Mama, he formed a new Belle Ame (Beck’s main rival) which became popular not through their talent but the band members’ looks. Getting all the big breaks, Belle Ame seemed destined for greatness, until Beck overtook them on their drive to fame.

  • Maho Minami: VOICED BY HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL’S STEPHANIE CUEVAS

Ryusuke’s sister and a talented singer with a strange relationship with Koyuki. At times she seems attracted to him, other times she brushes him off with little regard to his often ignored feelings. She also has a great voice and can sing as well.
