Ostensibly it was because of the violence in the shows, but talk was that Voltes V was specifically canceled because the storyline about Earth's defenses opposing an oppressive, invading alien force would inspire rebellions against the martial law then in place.
    In France, we had both: Candy and the robot animes that triggered polemics about violence. Also Candy was full of dramatic events: deaths, tearful separations…

    The only anime on Australian TV when I was growing up were Kimba the White Lion, Astro Boy, Marine Boy and Speed Racer (which got taken off air for being too violent).

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I guess you're right. Strange, I could have sworn there was a third vote.

    I didn't vote yesterday, so I'll do so now. I'll pick Tami's Battle Nurse, a cover that has so much stuff going on that I can't quite figure it out. That's how to make you buy a comic, to read the story!
