Netflix released the first 5 minutes of the anime Trese, giving viewers a taste of what to expect from the much-awaited screen adaptation of Budjette Tan and KaJO Baldisimo’s comic book series.
Based on the videos – available in both English and Filipino – Trese aptly begins with a familiar Metro Manila horror story: the MRT breaks down between stations, forcing passengers to walk along the train tracks. In a uniquely Trese twist though, some passengers are attacked by shadowy, sharp-toothed figures who climb onto the railway from the highway below.
We are then introduced to Trese’s Manila, as described by the main character Alexandra Trese. The character is voiced by Shay Mitchell in the English version and by Liza Soberano in the Tagalog version. The snippet ends as Trese arrives at a crime scene where the victim is the legendary White Lady of Balete Drive.
Trese the series is directed by Jay Oliva who also executive produced alongside BASE Entertainment’s Tanya Yuson. It was written by Yuson, Zig Marasigan, and Mihk Vergara, based on the award-winning comic books by Tan and Baldisimo.
It is set to premiere on Netflix on June 11. – Rappler.com
