To me, this blog was a great idea. You see, there are lots of Doom bashers everywhere. The Voltron Force lovers think their opinion is the only one that matters. But even if us Doom lovers or doomites are less in numbers, (not that we have been part of a census or anything) we are still here. We are still strong. In our silence, we let everybody know that we are not happy.
Every performer needs an audience. If there is no audience or no applause….there’s no use in having a show. Voltron is for the older fans; new fans have more options. That’s why we have to rediscover it. Go back to basics; the formula of a winner is the combination of medieval times with science fiction. The story of forbidden love, obsession, cruelty, young guys trying to be heroes in an uncharted galaxy will always attract an audience.
But, why do the good guys always have to win? Is that reality? Actually, in real life…the bad guys ARE the good guys. Every coin has two faces. What’s interesting about Japanese manga and anime is how the writers like to give an in-depth story for each character; no matter if it’s the villain or the hero. That formula will never fail specially if the story is good.
Voltron or GoLion has a good story, it just needs to be retold. The story needs more depth for ALL the characters including Voltron, that would make Voltron as epic as Star Trek or Star Wars. Don’t treat Voltron like a kiddie toy; make it memorable, gigantic, big like the mecha story it was intended to be.
If it can’t be done like that…give it back to Japan. I really, really mean it!
