PHILIPPINES, 19 August 2018 – The Most talked-about Teleserye of Twitter Philippines in the first quarter has bid farewell to its fans on Twitter. A battle well-fought for “Lakas” (@itsenriquegil) and “Ganda” (@lizasoberano) as their fantasy-drama series #Bagani (@OfficialBagani) ended last night. The show generated 26 million Tweets since its premiere in March 2018. The final episode #BAGANIHulingLaban generated over 520,000 related-Tweets; proving Filipinos inclination for local fantasy folklores.
As a live communication platform, the Bagani audience gathered every night on Twitter to talk about #WhatsHappening in every episode since its pilot. Here are the top 5 most Tweeted episodes:
1. March 5, 2018 (600K Tweets) – #UnangSabakngBagani
This is the pilot episode of Bagani that left a lot of people in awe with its amazing special effects to introduce the magical world of Sansinukob. Everyone didn’t expect how beautiful the production of Bagani until this episode came despite the controversies the teleserye faced.
Bagani is Hardcore Freakin’ Legit! Its cinematography is way beyond compare. Now I can say that we have a GOT series with a Filipino taste. It is like a HALO HALO(pertaining to mixed customs, traditions and cultures of ancient Filipinos all wrapped up in one) #unangsabakngbagani

2. August 17, 2018 (460K Tweets) – #BAGANIHulingLaban
The show finale didn’t fail to shock its viewers with its modern-day twist. Towards the end of the episode, Liks,i played by Zaijan Pajarilla (@zjanjaranilla), was transported to the modern world. He bumped to people closely resembling Ganda, @lizasoberano and Lakas, @itsenriquegil, who appeared to be baffled when Liksi called them by their names.

3. March 14, 2018 (250k Tweets) – #AngSimulangDigmaansaBAGANI
As this episode shows how the conflict arises in Sansinukob, the Twitterverse were shooked especially with Lakas and Lakam’s fight scene that showed an action-packed roles to @itsenriquegil and Mateo @mateoguidicelli, including @lizasoberano that proved they are more than just pretty faces.
Favorite episode by far, my heart is palpitating in every scene.
Liza’s 1st and last gap was superb!
Enrique and Matteo fight scene is a wowzer!
Overall it made me start loving this kind of genre.#AngSimulaNgDigmaanSaBAGANI

As the Bagani meet the great babaylan of Sansinukob, the people are all amazed and laugh on the funny character of Babaylan Gloria played by Dimples Romana (@DimplesRomana) and expressed their joy to Dimples as she asked on how’s her 1st day as Babaylan Gloria.
Your character is a breath of fresh air haha! Not the usual Babaylan character na sobrang serious at laging patalinghaga magsalita. First time atang may komedyanteng Babaylan ang cute mo po.;)#SiBabaylanNgBAGANI

#BAGANIHulingLaban showed a happy ending for Lakas and Ganda having a beautiful family. But a major plot twist left the people shocked and hang with the crossover dimensions from Sansinukob to the modern world.

Despite their mixed emotions, everybody commended the team and the actors for their performance and the amount of passion they’ve put into this project including the learnings they earned from the teleserye of the importance of love and prayer in the midst of challenges.
This teleserye symbolizes that when we take action we should include love. With love we can able to achieve unity and togetherness. This might be the end of this teleserye but let us always remember and reminisce the lesson that they give us. Love should reign! #BAGANIHulingLaban
