So, just to be clear. By watching the original uncut, unedited, Japanese version on Crunchyroll, we will be entered into a contest to win the Poorly dubbed, completely new script and scene ordered American release?

The two versions are night and day.


I respectfully take offense to your comment because I really love and enjoyed the American Voltron just as much as I enjoy and love the American Power Rangers compared to it's Super Sentai counterpart in Japan. To each his own. Please remember that there are people who love the so called 'poorly dubbed' Voltron show and IDW Volron comics.

Psst: If it not available in your region on Crunchyroll, World Event Productions have all 26 Episodes on Youtube.

I Like vehicle Voltron better, it's not as heavily edited and it's got a plot.I Like vehicle Voltron better, it's not as heavily edited and it's got a plot.

That sounded better in my head when I wrote it. I since fixed the statement. I grew up on the english version, and was surprised when I found out how edited it really was. I mostly find it funny that the contest asks you to watch one version, while the prize is another version completely.

The american power rangers was an american show based on a japanese idea, a company didn't take existing japanese footage, rearrange it, and give it a voice over. Makes a difference.

Ahhh... how I miss that pink ranger though.

Alright, looks like a rare badge contest with Black being the rare one... Not sure how rare, but after 50 badges I've yet to see one.

Would be nice to have a contest that lasted more than a week for a change. Watching 52 episodes of something in week is a pain. Not that it matters. Since it's another badge defendant one you probably won't get them all even if you did watch the whole thing.

so far, watched 26 eps (thank goodness I don't work this week, I have all BUT the Black lion badge) But have to say this is been my fav badge contest so far, the nostalgia factor alone from my childhood makes it so worth it! That and i have never seen All of the Go Lion version before here is hoping i get that elusive black lion badge today

Alright, here's more info for anyone who hasn't done a badge contest before:

- The badge you get is completely random (i.e. you don't get a specific badge by watching a specific episode, and you can re-watch the same episodes over and over to get different badges)
- You need all six different badges to be entered into the draw (so 1 Black, 1 Blue, 1 Yellow, 1 Green, 1 Red, 1 Try Again)
- You can delete the duplicate badges you get along the way
- Once you get all 6 badges, you'll automatically be entered into the draw which will happen on Nov 1st.
- The winner(s) will be contacted directly, and won't be announced here (unless the winners themselves post)

Good luck everyone!

I wish I could do this contest but unfortunately I have midterms that I need to study for but I do like the badge contests that CR has, but most of the time am one of those unfortunate people who will watch the episodes over and over again but never get all of the badges before the deadline. Am always one away :S seeing how the black one is the hardest one to get, good luck to everyone trying I hope the best

I wonder if this show is only available in the US... if so it was a bad choice for a contest

Edit: looks like they just added Canada to the list! Still sucks for our overseas members... sorry guys


Well, for once they actually tell us that the contest is for us/canadian members only..
I wonder what went wrong this fall.. I got 1 new simulcast to watch legally, the other 3 is so extremely boring i died several times just thinking about it.

Don't get your hopes up high. I watched ALL the 52 episodes and not a freaking black badge >_<'

Edit: I'm starting to believe there's only 1 black badge available >.<

If it's anything like previous contests, it can take 300+ episodes to get the rare badge (unless you're REALLY lucky and get it in the first 10-20 shows)
