    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.

    The sets and designs are all good. Acting is all over the place. I wonder what could have been done to push this over the line from super cheesy to good.

    either way, willing to give it a try. Even if it’s super cheesy, I can find something enjoyable here. Especially if they really do respect the source material and don’t want to destroy it like a lot of other modern remakes do.

    I know plenty of Filipinos, so why do these actors all have Indian accents?

    "Shinichiro Shirakura, a producer for Toei Company, extended his praise to the Philippine staff working on a live-action adaptation of Voltes V, citing their respect for the original material and their hard work during the pandemic."

    This was the direct quote from Shinichiro: "Production may be tough under this COVID situation, but this time we wanted to inform you that we were so excited to see the latest promo-reel of the show. We could feel your respect [for the] original series, and we also thank you for your effort, enthusiasm and hard work under this COVID situation. Please all take care of yourselves, and we shall continue to look forward to the completion of the show."

    Definitely gonna check this out. :D  You can tell this is being made by fans of the series with a deep respect and admiration for the original series, rather than something like the recent shitty adaption of Cowboy Bebop.

    This is a Filipino production, expect the following: :D  :D  :D 

    1. Love triangle between Kenichi, Ippei/Zardoz and Megumi.
    2. Father angst (even more that usual in Voltes)
    3. Additional side stories that pads up the main story but leads nowhere.
    4. Daijiro will have a love interest and Hiyoshi will have a cute girl friend (non-romantic of course).

    A 5-minute trailer. Well, they went all-out as much as they could.
