  • Jan 26, 2022
    A very good introduction to this world and these characters and the adventures are lot of fun,
  • Nov 02, 2019
    I haven't really watched it yet so I'm so excited to watch it and other types of anime in the future
  • Jul 04, 2019
    The good start was strong with this one.
  • May 16, 2019
    I came because this was made by the people who made Avatar, stayed because I fell in love with the characters and got obsessed with the story
  • Mar 31, 2019
    An incredible start to see Voltron again.
  • Mar 13, 2019
    Wow, just wow. What a reboot.
  • Jan 29, 2019
    I love this show! Filled with loveable characters and has an interesting plot. Besides the rating, I think this show is 12 and up.
  • Jan 06, 2019
    So let me just preface this by explaining exactly why, despite the strengths of this series, it is ultimately... quite terrible. it is the lack of the writing staffs ability to temper themselves. the reboot of voltron started out very good, the art style may not appeal to everyone, but it is high quality throughout. the characters are generally well written (to a point) and the story (or it's first half) is both well grounded and plotted. UNFORTUNATELY, this ends in season 3. from that point onward, voltron spirals into a self imposed death trap as the writers seemed to "need" to make everything bigger, but with little real idea on how to go about this. fans of anime will see very, very clear allusions (and in some cases outright rips from) gurren lagaan, but not the good kind. i'll be writing a SPOILER heavy review in the near future, but suffice to say netflix's voltron is at least worth watching. it is an enjoyable romp from start to finish, with a number of bumps along the way, but it is far from the worst thing they've thrown at an audience starved for something new, but fans of the original and those who think evne slightly to hard about the plot after a certain point may find FINISHING the series a choir. seasons 1-3 4/5 stars seasons 4-finale 2 stars
  • Jan 04, 2019
    So Good, just really good scifi, every season just got better and better - loved it. If they bring all seasons out on DVD will buy! Please watch and enjoy!
  • Dec 25, 2018
    Season 1 of the New Voltron is a great opener to the series. We are introduced to the characters, the Galra, and the outer edges of a Universe that wasn't known to the Earth of this series.
