Best Anime Shows on Netflix You Must Watch
The original Voltron was a strange Frankenstein’s monster of a creation. It mixed two completely different anime with all-new audio and dialogue to create an experience that has persisted in the hearts of fans far longer than its creators could have dreamed. The franchise has been rebooted several times, but the latest iteration, Voltron: Legendary Defender, is easily the best and has even surpassed the original.
Longtime Voltron fans will no doubt be familiar with the basic plot: five human pilots discover robotic lions that can combine to form the giant robot Voltron. The pilots are then dragged into a war with an evil alien race that has a galaxy-spanning empire. But, Voltron: Legendary Defender inserts plot twist after plot twist (and more than a few uproariously hilarious scenes) that set it apart from the source material. Voltron: Legendary Defender is this generation’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, but what else can you expect when they share showrunners?
