Some fans wrote on Twitter that they watched the series since they were young and would like it if GMA also broadcasted it in Japan.

“I am Japanese. I also watched Voltes V when I was a kid. This is a great work! I would like you to broadcast this in Japan as well,” a Netizen wrote.

Another Netizen compared the Kapuso actors portraying the Voltes team to their anime counterparts and have also written in Japanese their appreciation for the upcoming GMA series.

Another Japanese netizen said that he is proud of Voltes V as it is loved and appreciated in the Philippines. He said that Japanese people got hyped by the trailer.

“Many Japanese Voltes fans have praised the new trailers that have been released so far, raising expectations,” a Netizen wrote.

“As a Japanese in the country that gave birth to Voltes, I am proud of Voltes, who is loved in the Philippines and is a bridge of friendship between the two countries!”

According to an article by GMA news, the singer of the theme song of Voltes V, Mitsuko Horie, also watched the trailer for the series. She said that she’s glad Voltes V is ‘still’ loved in the Philippines.
