"Number 1" clue is a bit misleading. Kept trying ichi and it wouldn't work. Better translation of the word you are looking for might be "first".

The clue is not misleading. "Ichi" means "one" and "ichiban" means "number one." It depends on the context, but usually "first" would be "daiichi," as in "anzen daiichi" (safety first).

Between Voltron and Gamera, Guardian of the universe, the Japanese seem to have the whole universe defense thing down.

For "V" I kept trying to figure out how to spell "Gundam" or "Go Lion" or "Doraemon" with a "V". I realize "Go Lion" doesn't start with a V, but could you accept the answer since they are the same show?

I kept typing Voltes V, which was older than Voltron. It was dubbed in English on its first showing in my country, where it was popular. Maybe consider it as an alternate answer? It was also dubbed in English for the North America release in 1983.
