Voltes V

Remember “Voltes V”? Many of us were hooked on this Japanese TV series, a certified smash hit in the country in the ’70s.

A backgrounder from Wikipedia:

This anime television series was first aired on TV Asahi starting April 6, 1977. It was created by Tadao Nagahama as the second part of his “Robot Romance Trilogy” of the “Super Robot” genre. Conceived as a second part/remake of its predecessor “Combattler V”, it was released in Italy, Spain, and the Philippines, dubbed in their respective languages except initially in the Philippines, where the first airing, in 1978, was dubbed in English.

Here’s a video to refresh your memory (can you still sing along?):
