There are a lot of Voltes V-related developments lately that titos who grew up watching the popular mecha-anime are going nuts over.
There’s the recent release of the utterly magnificent (and expensive) DX Soul of Chogokin (SOC) Voltes V Volt-in-Box, which is hands-down the best representation of the robot character in toy form; and then there’s GMA network’s upcoming Voltes V Legacy television drama series, which based on CGI teasers is a very promising show.
In this regard, it’s hard to blame Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) traffic czar Bong Nebrija for embracing the hype and declaring his Voltes V fandom in a Facebook post Friday, February 5.
“In support of our whole police force and it’s Chief PGen Debold Sinas, I proudly wear my VOLTES V PHILIPPINES shirt courtesy of Altama. Thanks Boss Nelson Dy!” he wrote.
Nebrija even tagged a Facebook group devoted to the anime, proving his camaraderie to fellow Voltes V fans and the community that they form.
The only question now is, will General Sinas also take to social media to show his love for the Bozanian empire conqueror? Let’s wait and see.
