Voltes V is the story of three brothers in search for their lost father, while waging a war against a horned race of alien invaders.
To fight against the aliens, the three brothers and two friends use five sophisticated attack vehicles which can combine into a powerful laser sword-wielding giant robot.
The theme of the series is not for the average kid, storylines about discrimination, racism and dictatorialism has led to this series being banned in one country.
But the main theme of siblings going against the odds to be reunited with their father has made this series one of the most popular of the vintage anime. It doesn't hurt also that their mecha (robot) is one of the more advance-designed one.
A cult following has ensued in my country. Twenty years after its release, it still hasn't lost its magic. And I for one am thankful for that.
