Based on Choudenji Machine Voltes V, the original anime series follows five youths who fight the evil Boazanian Empire and its horde of "beast fighters". The series has been a staple on Philippine TV and Philippine pop culture since the show debuted in the 1978. Voltes V has at least a couple of reruns every few years, the most recent being the one that aired on July 2018, with an all new Filipino dub cast.
The upcoming series primarily stars:
- Miguel Tanfelix as Kenichi Go/Steve Armstrong, Volt Cruiser's pilot and the team leader
- Radson Flores as Ippei Mine/Mark Gordon, Volt Bomber's pilot and a rodeo champion
- Matt Lozano as Daijiro Go/Robert "Big Bert" Armstrong, Volt Panzer's pilot and the second oldest Go/Armstrong brother
- Rafael Landicho as Hiyoshi Go/"Little John" Armstrong, Volt Frigate's pilot and the youngest Go/Armstrong brother
- Ysabel Ortega as Megumi Oka/Jamie Robinson, Volt Lander's pilot and a female ninja
Directed by Mark A. Reyes (Encantadia, Resiklo) who was involved in the project for over five years now, and scripts written by Suzette Doctolero (Encantadia), the series is set to premiere this 2023 on GMA. Everything related to this production, which includes the new fictional Boazanian language, are all approved by Toei Company, Ltd. and Telesuccess Productions Inc.
