Anyone in need of a classic anime fix just has one word to watch out for: VOTOMS! The timeless mecha series is coming back to home video for more with the release of Armored Trooper VOTOMS OVA Collection 1, which is now available in its original standard definition format on Blu-ray.
They may be encased in suits of powered armor, but the soldiers who wear a VOTOMS unit in battle are simply serving the purpose that infantry has always served in war: to take ground and hold it, no matter what the cost. Combine that mission with the explosive fuel mixture and thin metal of their powersuits, and their chances of survival are decreased rather than enhanced, and only a handful will live to fight again.
But of that elite group of survivors, a few will become legends.
The theater of mecha warfare established in the 52-episode Armored Trooper VOTOMS TV anime breaks out into a full-scale invasion in the previously unreleased original video animations. The set includes Last Red Shoulder, Big Battle, Origin of Ambition, Brilliantly Shining Heresy (1-5), and Pailsen Files (1-12), giving anime fans plenty of action to keep them holding down the frontlines for the foreseeable future. Join the fight yourself and order your copy of Armored Trooper VOTOMS OVA Collection 1 today!
