AECC GLOBAL Celebrates NEW GENSAN OFFICE as they Continue Offering Consultancy for GENERALS to STUDY ABROAD


While planning to find employment overseas has long been part of the international Filipino experience, the idea of getting an education overseas has, perhaps for some time, be limited in scope. A Filipino going to high school or college studies abroad tends to be perceived as being wealthy enough to do so. Or maybe they have relatives already living and working in the countries they plan to enroll in. More recently however, the idea of studying abroad has become a more tangible reality for many. That does not mean getting into a foreign school is easy now. For many aspiring students, they will need help.

And help they are sure to get – help that many others before have been getting – courtesy of AECC Global. They are a leading overseas education consultancy, helping young and ambitious minds get a shot at international studies since the mid-2010s, in major centers across the Philippines: Metro Manila, the Visayas and even in Mindanao. In fact, AECC Global has already been quite established here in GenSan, only shutting down office operations during the COVID pandemic. Now however, they are back in action, and from a new accessible location to boot. They will not let a pandemic get in the way of Filipinos getting overseas education.

So how does AECC Global help in realizing that Filipino dream of studying internationally? Maybe a prospective student already has an overseas educational institution of choice. Or maybe they just have a country they have in mind to study in but no idea which school to choose from. AECC Global’s consultancy services can give recommendation institutes to the undecided. In any case, they will help the aspirant in their school application, from gathering required personal and financial documents, travel and accommodation arrangements, and even getting student visas if necessary. And they will do this for applicants completely free of charge!

You read that right. True, applicants will still dole out cash expenses for the school application, partial tuition, student visa and medical exam/insurance (if required), airfare and accommodation (if they have no relatives/acquaintances to stay with at their destination countries. But these expenses will go straight to the educational institution/the DFA/airline/et cetera. AECC Global will not charge any fee of their own for their consultancy services. Students can apply for any overseas educational level, from primary school to college, vocational and postgraduate courses. This is made possible by the wide selection of their partner institutes.

To give an idea, AECC Global consultation can help any Filipino apply to study at quality schools in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the US and UK. And their help does not stop at just getting the student in. Assistance will persist throughout the applicant’s overseas student life. Many AECC Global partner institutions allow their students to pursue part-time employment. That is already a potential avenue to make money while studying. And for students who have no overseas relatives for living arrangements, the consultancy can also point them to local communities of the Filipino diaspora, so that applicants need not be strangers in a strange land.

With the world slowly opening up again as the worst of the pandemic begins to fade away, there is no better time than now for students to contemplate the possibility of getting their diplomas abroad. If they mean to pursue the OFW path then such qualifications can only be a big boon.

If you are in GenSan or from neighboring municipalities and are interested in knowing more about how AECC Global can help you study internationally, visit them at their new office in the second floor of Microtel, along the National Highway. You may also contact them by phone at (083) 823-3977 (landline) or 0917-1437751 (mobile). Or you can reach them via email at and visit their official website.

“Cowboy Bebop,” the live-action adaptation of the legendary 1998 anime series, was quietly cancelled after one cliff-hanging season finale on streaming giant Netflix. This perceived failure, as indicated by mixed and negative reviews despite praise for the cast, was seized by naysayers as vindication, alongside the 2017 “Death Note” movie, of their dislike for Netflix and its experiments in turning already-good anime into shows with live actors. But Netflix is not quite done with this phase yet, having its next project being the adaption of Eiichiro Oda’s manga (and long-running anime series) “One Piece.” Its main stars were announced back in November last year, and now the supporting cast too.

IGN has it that Netflix has revealed more names to the cast of “One Piece,” the fantastical pirate adventure anime that they are adapting for live-action. The main cast was introduced in November 2021, as an international ensemble of TV and film stars including Iñaki Godoy (Mexico), Mackenyu (Japan) and Emily Rudd (US). They play Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates, sailing the world to search for the treasure of Gold Roger, the Pirate King, while encountering monstrous sea-life, other pirates and the World Government’s ruthless Marine fleet.

The supporting cast portrays characters Luffy and his would-be crewmembers meet as they themselves assemble into their own team. Australian Morgan Davies plays Koby, a boy befriended by Luffy who later joins the Marines. Ilia Isorelýs Paulino costars as Alvida, a grotesquely obese female pirate captain and Luffy’s first opponent. Jeff Ward (“Agents of SHIELD”) will be Buggy, another pirate empowered by a Devil Fruit. McKinley Belcher III (“Ozark”) is Arlong, a cruel fishman and pirate warlord. Aidan Scott portrays Helmeppo, son of a Marine officer and eventual companion of Koby’s. Lastly, British actor Vincent Regan (soon on 2022’s “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”) takes the role of Garp, Luffy’s grandfather and a Marine Admiral.

“One Piece” on Netflix was announced back in 2020, after plans for a live-action series were floated in 2017 during the original manga’s 20th anniversary. Creator Eiichiro Oda joins an executive producer team including Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break,” “Teen Wolf”) and Steven Maeda (“Lost”). Despite the short life of its live-action adaptation predecessor “Cowboy Bebop,” this production looks to be all systems go, although Netflix has yet to give a definite premiere date.” The series also stars Jacob Romero Gibson (Ussop) and Taz Skylar (Sanji).

Other Netflix live-action ideas from existing anime includes “Yu Yu Hakusho” (1992-94 anime) by Japanese production studio Robot Communications, and a take on “Mobile Suit Gundam” with Jordan Vogt-Roberts (2017’s “Kong: Skull Island”) as director.
