A new, er… old robot romance shall begin again.
Earlier today, Discotek Media announced that they acquired the rights to Voltes V. The publisher will release the title on Standard Definition Blu-Ray in a single subtitled set.
Voltes V is a 1977 mecha series from Sunrise. Tadao Nagahama (Chō Denji Robo Combattler V, Reideen the Brave) directed the project, which featured character designs by Nobuyoshi Sasakado (Muteki Robo Trider G7, Robot King Daioja) and Yuki Hijiri (Chō Denji Robo Combattler V, Tōshō Daimos). The team of Fuyunori Gobu, Masaaki Sakurai, Masaki Tsuji, Saburo Yatte, Shoichi Taguchi, and Yumiko Tsukamoto wrote the scripts.
Anime Planet describes Voltes V as:
Evil aliens known as the Boazanians have invaded Earth, easily defeating all of its conventional military defenses. However, all is not lost: Japan has been secretly developing a mighty weapon – the powerful robot known as Voltes V! This massive mecha is made up of five combat vehicles, three of which are piloted by the sons of Voltes V’s inventor; and when the evil Boazanians attack, the five vehicles combine to crush the invaders’ newest evil plot while using their mighty laser sword to slice the enemy robots in two!
