Armored Trooper Votoms: Big Battle
When it comes to classic mecha series, some people are devoted to Macross/Robotech, others to Gundam, but my favorite is Votoms. And, with Big Battle, I believe I've finally seen it all. This story must take place fairly late in the TV series, since Shako is present. The climax involves an attack by Chirico and his friends on a mammoth mobile fortress (for the outcome of which bets have been placed), hence the title. Suffice to say that the plan would never work in reality, since there's far too much luck involved in this David vs. Goliath struggle, but it is fairly fun to watch seeing as it involves Chirico and all of his friends. These people obviously cannot get killed since this is just a spinoff of the main series, after all. They are all here, and the scheming between the greedy, opportunistic businessman Gotho and his old friend/rival Cherokee are amusing. I would say that only those who've seen Votoms and want more would be interested.|
