Armored Trooper VOTOMS

 

Armored Trooper VOTOMS

 

In the early 1980s, the real robot mecha genre was at the peak of its popularity thanks to series such as Mobile Suit Gundam and Super Dimension Fortress Macross. In 1983, veteran mecha director Ryosuke Takahashi (SPT Layzner) took the real robot concept to a new level with Armored Trooper VOTOMS. In a departure from even its other real robot cousins, the ATs of VOTOMS were walking tanks that are not special prototypes, don't fly and don't transform. In the distant Astragius Galaxy, a brutal intergalactic war has been waged for over a century between the Gilgamesh Confederation and the Balarant Union. The VOTOMS TV series begins at the end of the war and focuses on Chirico Cuvie, a Melkian AT pilot with a deadly past who becomes entangled in a massive interstellar conspiracy. Following the conclusion of the TV series, several short OVA installments were released. Most of these focus on the past or continuing adventures of Chirico, but the 12 episode OVA series Armor Hunter Merowlink is a standalone story featuring a new hero. In 2007, the franchise returned from inactivity with the 12 episode OVA series Pailsen Files. This was followed by Phantom Arc and Alone Again in 2010-11, which together complete Chirico's story. In 2011, Sunrise also released the standalone OVAs Case;IRVINE and VOTOMS Finder, which focus on new characters. The TV series was released on DVD in North America by Central Park Media, but is now out of print following the company's shuttering. No other VOTOMS production has to date been released in North America.
