About Armored Trooper VOTOMS Blu-ray
Armored Trooper VOTOMS contains episodes 1-52 of the original anime series directed by Ryosuke Takahashi presented in standard definition on blu-ray discs along with 6 Compilation Movies which include: Woodo, Kummen, Sunsa, Quent, Stories of the "A.T. Votoms," and Highlights from the "A.T. Votoms."
VOTOMS (Vertical One-man Tanks for Offense & ManeuverS) units are light and maneuverable on the battlefield, but in the hundred-year war between Gilgamesh and Balarant, they've essentially become expendable cannon fodder and pawns to be sacrificed.
The right pawn in the right place can change the course of the game forever, and when VOTOMS pilot Chirico Cuvie is mysteriously transferred from his elite unit to a top secret mission behind his own side's lines, he quickly learns that something is very wrong. Betrayed and branded a traitor, Chirico finds himself on the run from both sides as he seeks to unravel the truth behind the conspiracy and learn the secret behind the beautiful woman who seems to hold the key.

Ratings & Reviews
Solid release for one of the best shows ever made
by Evan -
This is Standard Definition on Blu ray release, meaning its video quality is about the same as a modern DVD, but on Blu Ray discs. Never the less the picture quality is a substantial step up from the older DVD release. It does have some jittering problems with mostly panning shots and to a much lesser extent, some action shots. I believe this is called 'Ghosting' and probably comes from the process of cleaning up the picture from a lower quality source.
The subtitles are Yellow with a black border. The menu is simple and effective, the case it comes is economical but solid and has good weight.
Overall I recommend this set. Its beautiful to see the show with the colors closer to its original design rather than the washed out look the old VHS and DVD releases had. You know the visual quality is substantially upgraded when you start noticing things in the background you never noticed before.
Bravo Sentai, and thank you.
P.S. Please bring Heavy Metal L-Gaim here next.
