    So this is different. Philippines-based remake of a '77 mecha anime.

    The last time the Philippines attempted to do something mecha-related, it didn't end well.

    Looks better than I would expect of something coming not from Japan.

    The designs make me think of Mazinger Z Infinity.

    I've never seen Volts V, barely even heard of it. (I know of the robot itself, and that's about it.) But, I have seen a few of these anime remakes (Outside of Japan.) Heidi, Maya The Bee, a few others, and the majority of them while are decent, are greatly watered down from the material. Although, still better than anything Hollywood has attempted to do with anime.

    This one however, looks really, really well done. Comparing it to the combining animation in the same post, it does seem to be much better than what I've seen in the past. Still prefer the hand drawn animation to the CG, but it still looks pretty good.

    I'll happily look forward to seeing this. Looks good, much better than I expected it to look. I guess it's due to these things being made outside of Hollywood that really makes the difference.
