Shining Heresy

 

Armored Trooper VOTOMS: Brilliantly Shining Heresy
(aka The Heretic Saint)

 

Released in 1994, the Brilliantly Shining Heresy OVA marks the only animated entry of that decade for the VOTOMS franchise. Director Ryosuke Takahashi and other staff from the TV series returned for this OVA, which at its time was the first to be set after the show. At the end of VOTOMS, protagonist Chirico Cuvie and Fyana went into cryogenic sleep to avoid getting caught up in the renewed conflict between the Gilgamesh and Balarant. But they wake up 32 years later and get caught up in the politics of the church of Marteal. After its release, Brilliantly Shining Heresy was the last VOTOMS OVA until the creation of Pailsen Files in 2007. Chronologically, the story of Brilliantly Shining Heresy is picked up in the 2010 OVA series Phantom Arc. The series was released on video in North America in 2019 by Maiden Japan.
