I haven't really caught up with 80s Voltron but who are isamu and Akira?
Isamu and Akira are actually Lance and Keith! Isamu and Akira are their original names from the, much darker, Japanese version ‘Beast King Golion’. When it later came over to the US they not only chopped the show up into pieces to make it acceptable for children they also changed the names of all the characters. personally when I draw the 80s Lance and Keith go with calling them Isamu and Akira for organizational reasons so they aren’t confused with Legendary Defender’s Lance and Keith.
so Keith and Lance are almost like their 4kids names. I’m just so glad they went back to Shiro for Legendary Defender instead of keeping Sven XD
