    Armored Trooper Votoms



    Armored Trooper Votoms is a 52 Episode Anime following Chirico Cuvie, a man on a quest for vengeance after being betrayed by his own country after unwittingly aiding in a coup staged by an unknown organization. Now it is up to Chirico to wage war on those whom betrayed him, but can he discover what exactly the PS project is before it's too late? Or will Chirico's blood-stained past come back to haunt him? -Bal Intro

    ****

    Man, oh man. Votoms was a surprise. I'd discovered it after multiple wiki dives into different old-school anime (stuff I actually like to watch) and happened upon it quite by accident. After some research I discovered it was supposedly popular and to this day has produced further anime ova's and such since it's conception in 1983. Which of course is always a good sign (or not...), but I admit giddiness when finding out that Chirico appears in Super Robot Wars.

    I mean, it's a mecha series which follows a more hard science based approach to it's mechs. The typical real-based mech, is what I believe it's called (And man oh man do they break so easily). So going in with a bit of excitement, I was surprised to find that I was not disappointed. A hard hitting first episode really drew me into the character of Chirico and the amazing anime intro/mech designs really captured my attention. That isn't to say that there are not some flaws with the anime, such as a stagnant storyline at some parts which move too slowly, and the typical old-school recaps every 5-10 episodes.

    But there is more to Votoms than that, and if you're a mecha fan, then you owe it to yourself to watch it and all the additional material that's been released! I'm only halfway through and it's been quite a ride.

    now that IS old school. i remember reading about this one when i was researching the viability of mech-based combat vehicles. someone used this anime as an example of how man-style mechs are vulnerable.

    if you want a look into my life in song and video form:

    I'm really gonna have to sit down and watch this. Especially after watching episode one at your house, Bal. That episode was pretty damn baller.

    Also it doesn't help that he's one of my go to units in Super Robot Wars.
