Whats up all,

Remember those good ol' Voltron episodes from way back in the day? Well, no more reminiscing as it is now available!

We will be featuring all 52 episodes from this legendary anime - also known as Go Lion - today starting at noon PST. Premium anime and all-access members will be able to watch the series in its entirety. Free users will get the first episode today, and the rest of the episode 90-days later under ad-supported streaming.*



The animation from “Go Lion” was edited and trimmed to create the Lion version (VOLTRON COLLECTION 1-5) of the U.S. Voltron: Defender of the Universe series, with new names and dialogue, as well as several plot changes. Footage was heavily edited and re-assembled by World Events Productions (WEP) in the U.S. to create Voltron. Changes made to the series included rewritten dialogue, omitted character deaths, toned-down violence, and altered plot developments. In addition, Toei Animation Ltd. created and animated a brand new plot arc specifically for the U.S. Voltron series.

The “Go Lion” story begins in the year 1999, when the planet Altea is subdued and enslaved by the Galra Empire. Five space pilots return to Earth to find the planet annihilated by thermonuclear war. Eventually, the explorers are captured and enslaved, and forced to fight for their lives in Emperor Daibazaal's arena. The young pilots escape and eventually land on the planet Altea, where they discover the secret of the mighty sentient robot Go Lion, the only weapon powerful enough to defeat Emperor Daibazaal's forces.



Thousands of years ago, Go Lion was once an arrogant robot who, after defeating several beastmen, tried to challenge a goddess to battle, but failed. To teach him humility, the goddess separated him into five pieces in the form of five lion robots that sailed through space and crash-landed on Altea to lay in wait for those who would one day reawaken him to fight evil once again.

*Sadly, this will only be available for the US and its respective territories. We are working on trying to make it available to rest of the world. Thanks for your understanding on this matter.

Woooow. This or Robotech were probably the first anime I ever watched. Never got to see all of either of them. I'm highly considering watching this again.

Shinji!!! You are awesome man!

Bringing us some old skool anime.
I thought I was going to watch some nostalgia Voltron, but was even more excited to see the Original / Un-butchered Japanese content.
Looking forward to sleepless nights now watching all 52 episodes.

I so loved Voltron! There used to be a reason to get up early to watch Saturday cartoons!
I can't wait to see this unedited.

I want to get loud with excitement, but I'll stay contained. Thanks for bringing us such a series. I also appreciate seeing original titles. I wonder if it's plausible to access later classics in unedited form that previously suffered, like Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura. I wonder if Gatchaman was good, as I didn't like G-Force all too much.

@l2ukia: just wait for the scene where the royal Nanny spanks Princess Allura before you judge... lol.
Also, I'm glad this will be the Japanese version, I can finally find out why Pidge wore that girly barrette
