The first season of Voltron was not a straight dub from the Japanese anime series Beast King GoLion (1981) (neither was the second from Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (1982)) due to American broadcast standards - "living" beings were never killed on-screen; mechanical creatures, however, were fair game. One of the most noticeable differences involves the character Sven. In the Japanese version, this character died after battling the enemy's witch after six appearances. In the American version, he was seriously injured and left to heal, and returns near the end of the season. In the Japanese version, this was his brother at the end of the series. Similarly (and more obviously), Commander Zabbar was two characters; in the Japanese the character was killed and replaced by another commander. The third season was originally intended to be an adaptation of Lightspeed ElectroGod Albegas (1983). But World Event Productions decided instead to join with Toei Animation and make new episodes based on_"Hyakujû-ô Goraion" (1981)_. The second season adaptation of Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (1982) was not as popular as the first season "Goraion" episodes. See more »

I agree wholeheartedly with Canyon-2's review of this series. It's got a LOT more stuff to it under the surface than most people would see. You more than likely have at least one character that you're a fan of if you get into this show. Definitely one of the all-time greatest '80s cartoon series! The new series doesn't seen to capture that essence...
