A review from the archives (circa 1998)

Armored Trooper VOTOMS

Chirico Cuvie pilots an Armored Trooper, or AT, vehicle for the Melkian army. Then he is assigned to a special mission to a mysterious asteroid, where he makes a discovery that changes his life forever.

Moody and incredibly violent, I find this series to be quite captivating, despite the late-1970s styling and sometimes clumsy animation. Chirico makes a good tormented anti-hero, and I'm eager to see events unfold. (I've seen three of the four "stages.'') I would recommend it to mecha-heads and war movie fans.

On the Some/None/Lots scale:
Sex/Innuendo: A little
Skin: Some
Violence: Lots
Profanity: Some

AT Votoms was made in 1983. As some ole timer puts it, it was on the other channel when Macross was on, and explains why it wasn't as embraced.
