Netizens reacted to the rumors. Edu Karlo Gagarin said that if the graphics are better than Victor Magtanggol‘s and the CG artists are not underpaied, he will definitely stop watching FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano for Voltes V.

Yari ka ngayon Cardo!!!!! Ahahaha.. Pero teka teka teka lang muna, pag ang CG nito hindi parang Victor Magtanggol, at hindi na ia-underpay ang mga CG artists na kukunin, I’ll definitely drop the overrated probinsyano..

Meynard De Jesus Rodriguez claimed that the millennials will not appreciate the new Voltes V if ever it happens as the generation is too busy with their social media accounts.
Let it go. Only GenX like me will appreciate this but not millennials. GenX have moved on, Nobody will watch this. Everybody’s busy with their fb, insta
On the other hand, this girl suggested Jake Vargas as the male lead.
Please! Not RURU! Jake Vargas is the only guy who can fit to Steve Armstrong! and besides they are look a like..
Some expressed their opinions through memes.
Suzette Encabo suggested that GMA Network should study the historical reason why it was banned in the country in the first place.
Review first from the past why it was banned in the Philippines. Don’t underestimate the power of visual things that affect the young viewers.
She was referring to the order of the President Ferdinand Marcos banned the airing of the last four episodes of Voltes V due to alleged excessive violence. But according to the trivia page on the Anime News Network, “Many Filipinos believe Marcos was afraid that ‘Voltes V’s storyline involving an aristocratic empire and its oppressed masses reflected his dictatorship in the country.”
Voltes V re-aired on the channel in 1990.
