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 »

Voltron took Voltes V's name
18 October 2006 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

It was so obvious that Voltron DID copied some of the elements in VOLTES V.

One of these was ripping-off VOLTES V's name!

Voltron Lion Force had an original title. (Go-Lion: King of a Hundred Beasts)

When it reached the shores of the U.S.A., the American distributors re-named it VOLTRON as to catch the American viewers' taste.

American viewers and fans should be aware that this so-called "Defender of the Universe" took its name from a far more poignant super robot story.

It CANNOT be DENIED, the "VOLT" in Voltron's name was the Volt in VOLTES V's name. There are no other super robots in the past, Japanese originals and U.S tampered that had the Volt in the name but Voltes V!

In the case of Combattler V ripping-off by Voltes V, let us remember that the creator of Voltes V and Combattler V is only one person (Tadao Nagahama) and Voltes V is CLEARLY the Improvement of Combattler V.

Voltes V is one of the best Japanese animated shows I've seen.
