My friend Liberty sent me this video on YouTube. It's the theme song of Voltes V, my absolute favorite of all Japanese robot cartoons that aired in my youth. I was in early grade school back then.

Brings back memories.

I want to laugh and cry at the same time. Hahaha.




I still know the (supposed) English translation by heart. And apparently this "translation" is completely different from the original...

Someday the sons of light shall fill all the Earth
The morning of justice shall have come to its birth
So we'll all wave our banners high and free through the air
For the love and glory we then all shall share

Soldiers all, we unite
Fight, fight for peace!
Hand in hand like eagles through the breeze
Over land and over seas

yadda yadda yadda...

Now that I look at these lyrics again, it becomes painfully obvious that the person who wrote this English "translation" was not a native English speaker. In fact, I would be willing to bet a dollar that the person was Filipino...
