Synopsis

Golion, a powerful sentient robot, abuses his great powers by attacking and killing creatures known as Deathblack Beastmen, boasting that no one could defeat him. A divine space being punishes Golion for his arrogance and abuse by seperating him into 5 different lion robots. In the year 1999, a group of 5 young men return to Earth after a space voyage, only to find it ravaged by nuclear war. After encountering the alien race known as the Galra, the 5 youths end up on the planet Altea, and learn that the 5 lion robots that Golion was split into are in hibernation in various parts of Altea. Somehow, they must reunite the lions and form Golion, the only hope for the human race.

Anime: Yuusha Tokkyuu Might Gaine
I've had a similar experience with both of these shows. Both involve a combining robot destroying evil monsters with a giant sword. However, Might Gaine's titular robot is piloted only by one person up against crime lords who create the monsters.

Anime: Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV
Both series' were adapted Stateside into Voltron, with Dairugger XV being Vehicle Voltron and Golion being Lion Voltron. 
reportRecommended by Damolisher
Anime: Cowboy Bebop
Both of these over-the-top sci-fi action series have episodes that tell various different stories, making them episodic enough that you can easily pick them up where you left off.
