Voltes V x Combattler V

My favorite Japanese mecha Voltes V and his “predecessor” Combattler V.

Both Super Robots (by the way, the “V” in Combattler V is pronounced as the letter V, while it’s pronounced “five” in Voltes V), along with Daimos, are part of the so-called Robot Romance Trilogy, which was a co-production between Toei Company and Sunrise that aired from late 1976 to early 1979. All three shows were created by Saburo Yatsude (a collective pseudonym for the Toei staff) and directed by Tadao Nagahama.

Thanks to my wife Ellen for this Toei-licensed shirt, which we got at HQ Philippines on Jan. 6.
