    Since the Netflix animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender is kinda popular (which to honestly tell you the truth,I don't watch it which I will explain the reason why,later.) I am going to talk about it's predecessor Voltron: Defender of the Universe from the 80s .

    You see Voltron: Defender of the Universe is just a 'repackage dub plot altered series' of the real series made from japan and that is Beast King GoLion or The King of Hundred Beasts GoLion (百獣王ゴライオン) ,I didn't watch the series because I prefer subbed anime with original language though I think I watched some of it when I was 5.

    Anyway since Voltron: Legendary Defender gain popularity ,I was thinking maybe its source material anime Beast King GoLion should get a similar reboot treatment but made in Japan and this time made by the makers of the original anime TOEI animation with a help with another animation studio to make the series better.

    The reboot will be faithful to the original but will be aimed for pre teen audience or teenagers and will be a mixed tone of Light and Dark .

    And the characters of the reboot anime will be based on source material not the VOLTRON one from america like the reboot version of Akira 'Chief' Kogane not his voltron counterpart.

    Plus a remix of a original Golion theme or a different one

    Anyway the series will be co-produced by both TOEI and some other anime studio and will try to pay homage to the source material in a different anime style or maybe do a similar thing to what TOEI did to revive TIGER MASK with TIGER MASK W

    What do you think?

    If a reboot were to happen, they'd go retro with a recreation of the original Golion logo, like the one I did, and place the Hiragana on top of "百獣王" and the English translated letters below "ゴライオン".

    GoLion isn't that big in Japan, so this wouldn't happen. Even the series that became Vehicle Voltron (Dairugger) seems to be basically forgotten.

    Yeah,I hope so too

    Um..I don't see it because its deleted

    EDIT:I apologise but the board doesn't let me post the reply because of a japanese word that is considered banned so I replace it with "****" instead,I hope you forgive me for this.

    Sadly but true, at least they appear in the super robot Wars game which is a bright side,right?

    If Toei were to reboot this series, it would probably make a concious effort to not look like the newer Voltron show.
