Ratings & Reviews
A classic robot anime for the Ages!
by Daniel -
Voltes V is the second series in a trilogy of robot anime directed by Tadao Nagahama. These series (including Combattler V and Daimos) are famous for incorporating human drama within their stories to evolve the robot anime genre from beyond being an advertising medium for toys.
Passion, tragedy, and thrills are all here in spades as a team of five people (three of whom are siblings) must pilot a combining robot that is the only defense against an alien invasion. As this series predates Golion (later adapted as Voltron), Voltes V is a pillar to character chemistry and drama befitting of combining mecha anime.
This release comes with a fun assortment of extra features including toy and DVD commercials, a 8 mm film promo, an audio drama with visual aid, and a "digest" episode (WARNING - As this recap is full of spoilers, I recommend watching this after finishing the series).
Oh the Nostalgia!

Nostalgic indeed! Toy/anime companies investing 12+ episodes to sell a product? Now you're lucky to have a full 12!
V V as I call it ticks all the required in anime checklist requirements: Five (Gatchaman) team members. Alien invasion, close family ties, melodramatic soap opera, self sacrifice, sibling rivalry, Over the top action and awesome upbeat inspiring soundtrack. All wrapped up in a BD package (wished this had an upgraded resolution but then, beggars can't be choosers).
Bonuses include hilarious toy advertisements , recaps of episodes.
Highly recommended to old school Super Robot Fans
Cons: Discotek or Eastern Star, we are really appreciative of your localizing this but your package made a boo boo. The card cover is fine but the inner sleeve is atrocious and what the hex is Daikrugger doing here and labeled Voltes V?
