Popular Italian cosplayer Giorgia Vecchini goes both retro and playful, bringing to life the only girl member of the popular 70’s anime super robot series Combattler V – Chizuru Nanbara!
Combattler V is the first part of the Robot Romance Trilogy of Super Robot series created by “Saburo Yatsude” and directed by Tadao Nagahama. The robot’s name is a portmanteau of Combine, Combat and Battle, and the V is intended both as an abbreviation for “victory” and in reference to the five component machines that form the robot, as well as its five pilots.
The fourth member, and only female member of the team, Chizuru Nanbara is also the granddaughter of Doctor Nanbara, the founder and director of the Nanbara Connection, the Battle Team’s base of operations, and creator of Combattler V. She pilots the Battle Marine, which forms the legs of Combattler V.
Upon learning that she has valvular heart disease, she tries to hide it until it disables her in the middle of a battle. Afterwards, she undergoes surgery to correct the condition and returns to continue the fight against the Campbellians. Eventually, she falls in love with Hyouma. She is voiced by Miyuki Ueda, who also voiced the female leads in the other two Romantic series, and is the only cast member to appear in all three outings.
