Only whenever you're five-bottles drunk or you're watching Brod Pete and his "Ang Dating Doon" cohorts do you find yourself muttering the words to Voltes V's theme song.

The anime series holds a special place in our hearts, making its way to Filipino consciousness as early as 1978 (the series debuted in Japan on June 4, 1977).
