Did You Know?


The show was a huge success in the Philippines. The show's theme song (which was available in both Japanese and English) even became a Top-Ten hit there. In 1979, the show was banned by then-dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Rumors as to why he canceled the show vary from manipulating what shows could and couldn't air for the benefit of the government television broadcaster's ratings, to fears that the struggle of oppressed vs. oppressors would inspire revolt against his regime and its practices. But the series returned to the Philippines after Marcos' deposition in 1986, and remains popular. See more »

The BEST Japanese Anime (and I rarely lie)
24 September 2004 | by (indonesia) – See all my reviews

They say first love never dies, and it's certainly true for my love for Voltes V. I first watched the series in the mid 80's, the first Japanese anime I've ever seen. I'm still an anime lover, but truly nothing compares to Voltes V. I don't exactly know why, maybe it's the storyline (which gives a surprising secret at the end), maybe it's the characters (one of them is my first crush, the villain was voted the most-loved villain in all anime), or maybe simply because it doesn't use sex as a selling tool like so many anime nowadays.

When the story ends, I felt the first disappointment in my whole life. I've moved to many other movies, but still I came back for it, searched for years before finding a complete set of vcds, and surprised myself because I vividly remembered most episodes. That's how much I love it.
