This is the main page for my liveblog of the DreamWorks Animation (owned by Comcast and NBC!) action-packed animated series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, which was released on June 10, 2016 on the streaming service Netflix. This show is a reboot of the classic 1984 show, Voltron, which itself was a mishmash of two Toei Animation-produced Japanese mecha shows King of the Beasts GoLion and Dairugger XV. Voltron (the 1984 show, not the 2016 show!) was also the first animated show to be released in stereo sound.
So how I first knew of this show was from this article on Angry Asian Man that was posted back in March 2016, and what convinced me to give this show a go was that the showrunners, along with the writers there, were Avatar: The Last Airbender alums. Other reasons were because Steven Yeun is voicing someone on that show, and that one of the characters there sort of reminds me a bit of Kyon from Haruhi Suzumiya in terms of his character design.
The watchthrough will cover seasons 2-8 of this entertaining show.
