About Armored Trooper VOTOMS OVA Collection 1 Blu-ray
Armored Trooper VOTOMS OVA Collection 1 contains 8 OVA episodes plus the Palisen Files in standard definition on a blu-ray disc.
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.
Return to the universe of the most realistic mecha warfare ever animated as the beachhead established with the epic 52-episode Armored Trooper VOTOMS widens into a full scale invasion of spectacular and previously unreleased original video animations in Armored Trooper VOTOMS Collection 1!

A Solid Expansion of the Main Series
by ErwinJA -
Okay, so here we see a massive amount of DVD-resolution material crammed onto a single Blu-ray. And it delivers as decades (literally) worth of OVAs are collected together. These include prequels, side-stories, and a direct sequel to the main series, most of these focusing on Chirico's military career and people he came across as a result (and yes, most also best watched with prior knowledge from the original series).
There's a some notable disparity in art and animation with over 20 years between the production of the first and last of these, and Pailsen Files can be particularly jarring with its CGI action scenes. However, all of these are fairly good in their own right, and do an excellent job expanding and continuing the series.
While not quite an absolute must-have, this is a boon to any VOTOMS fan.
