its a surprise event for me, and im glad that I opened my mobile phone last night while watching the Gospel of Judas in NGC, thanks to Cholo for a massive txt for all Toy con organizers, and HERO TV marks the resurrection of Voltes V in cable TV. At last..another generation of Voltes V fanatics will emerge soon.

The event is about the contract signing and also launching of Hero TV's Voltes V. Featuring celebirities of ABS CBN as dubbers for the Anime characters of Voltes V. The event was opened by a Anime-METAL Voltes V version opening song performed live by DO AHOU, a jrock and anime inspired rock band in the Philippines. The contract signing event was held at the 14th floor restaurant of EGLCC Bldg inside ABS CBN compound. Hero TV hosted the event.
