In celebration of Voltron’s 30th Anniversary, (and also explain why viewers from Philippines regularly visit our #KeithAndAllura fan blog), this blog would like to present…
Top 5 reasons why
Philippines loves Voltron
1) Classic 80s Voltron was aired in Manila in mid 80s and Voltron 3rd Dimension in late 90s.
2) Fanfiction writers from the Philippines have been writing Voltron KeithAndAllura canon pairing stories since 1999, thanks to DrClaireBear, BabyPrin and more recently Ringhuiniele.
3) Voltron Force was animated by Toon City Philippines
4) Votron Force, which has been dubbed and edited for local Philippine audiences, is now being aired on ABS CBN Channel 2 every Sunday 8:30 A.M. local time (Thank you AceIrenea for the tip and snapshot)
“Voltron Force Ngayong March 30 na”
5) (Ongoing) Robotech / Voltron crossover comic book series is drawn and rendered by Philippine artist Elmer Damaso and the Digital Art Chefs.
once again, we would like to thank Elmer for the cutest / most adorable two-in-one Voltron chibi preview line art *squeee*
It’s a two-in-one Voltron preview line art because it’s also a gift art to KeithAndAllura fans! *swoon*
Almost completely forgetting that this blog turned one year old earlier this month, until a recent set of WordPress notifications reminded us about our blog stats:
Very happy to share that this little fan blog about a canon pair has been visited by at least forty countries throughout the year; proof that #Voltron fans are all over the world. And that is wonderful news for Voltron’s 30th Anniversary!
And to show our gratitude to our regular blog viewers and visitors, we would like to share an exclusive #KeithAndAllura gift art from Voltron / Robotech crossover comics artist Elmer Damaso.
Looking forward to more happy journeys celebrating Voltron’s most loved couple #KeithAndAllura through fanfiction and fanart in all of Voltron‘s versions and reincarnations.
Today’s post is long overdue and as my way to make it up, I write this post on her birthday (1st of March)
to a special #FanFiction writer and artist.
Happy Birthday Moira aka DreamtimeDancer on Fanfiction.Net and @DreamtimeDancer on Twitter.
The Voltron #KeithAndAllura fandom is very grateful and thankful for
creating / updating your fansite www.dreamtimedancer.com
which is a treasure trove of your fanfiction and fanart as well as others’ works.
Moira is one of the first few fanfiction KA writers who was able to write Keith and Allura in both 80′s Voltron universe as well as Voltron Force
Thank you so much for welcoming and supporting the newbies in the fandom!
Who would have thought that they would be back after 30 years?
In bright anime colours, original style #KeithAndAllura (that everyone grew up watching back in the 80′s in classic Voltron) are back thanks to Robotech / Voltron crossover comic book by Dynamite Comics.
Written by Tommy Yune and Art by Elmer Damaso, this mini-series of five issues delighted Voltron KA fans around the world, especially with a full page devoted to our favourite (canon pairing) couple.
This first issue was released on Christmas Eve 2013 and is currently available on Voltron e-store.

We are eagerly looking forward to Issue # 2 (release date February 2014).

We would like to give big hugs to KAEX admin Lionesse who continues to moderate a yahoogroup (currently has at least 500 subscribers) with such a rich history of discussion, shared fanfiction and fanart since 1998.
Despite the different variations / reincarnations of Voltron and its favourite couple / pairing #KeithAndAllura (*whispers* much-scorned/debated changes of their eye-colour *eye roll* *giggles*)
(on TV , apart from the classic 80′s Voltron, there was Voltron 3rd Dimension or V3D and Voltron Force in 2011)
(Via comics: there was Voltron Omnibus Devil’s Due Publication (DDP) written by Dan Jolley in 2008;
Dynamite Comics (in TP Volume 1 & Volume 2) written by Brandon Thomas ; Art by N Steven Harris; Voltron Force via VizMedia written by Brian Smith)
#KeithAndAllura fans around the world continue to love, share, write #Fanfiction and draw #fanart and tweet everything and anything Voltron with KA-pairing.
