From out of nowhere, a mysterious alien race known as the Boazan Forces has invaded the Earth. A group of individuals specially trained to handle this kind of situation has been unleashed. Kenichi, Ippei, Daijirou, Hiyoshi & Megumi are the pilots of the Choudenji Machine Voltes V (5), Earth's defense against the Boazan and their terrible Beast Warriors. The plot thickens as the Go Brothers discover their true heritage and the truth behind their father's disappearance. Conflicts and mixed emotions hinder the Go Brothers at times but due to their unwavering desire to find their dad, they must go to the place where it all started. With the help of the rebels based on Earth and on the aliens' homeworld, the Voltes Team has another mission, remove the tyrant Zu Zanbajil and liberate the people of Boazan.

I was a little kid in the Philippines when this anime aired on television, so it definitely has a nostalgic appeal that gives it an unfair advantage when I compare it to other giant-mecha anime. I rewatched this series in Japanese with English subs, and I saw it in a whole new light. I think this anime is the quintessential giant robot anime.
I really have nothing bad to say about it. Other than... with old-school robot anime like this, you either get it... or you don't. OR you're Filipino and you love this anime because you used to sing the opening theme song with read more

Voltes V is the second of Tadao Nagahama's "Romance Trilogy" mecha anime, coming between Combattler and Daimos.

Every week, the villainous Prince Heinel and his lackeys roll out a new monster for the team to fight, and with sheer determination and willpower, our heroes are able to carry the day.

So from the sound of it... just another 70s toy commercial.

What makes Voltes interesting, though, is that this isn't just a simple battle against an alien read more

Voltes V has almost everything you could want in an anime. Cool mecha battles, sword fighting, outer space travel, likable characters, an engaging story and plenty of drama. I'm pretty new to super robot anime and I did not expect that the genre would have something this good to offer.

If you ask me, the best thing about this series is Prince Heinel and the story surrounding him. I can't say too much without spoiling the whole thing, but he's one of those villains that you can respect and even like. If you've seen a lot of anime, the "sympathetic read more
