Armored Trooper Votoms ★★★½

52 episode animes are always daunting to get through, especially ones such as this that constantly lean on long drawn out battles to fill its time. But VOTOMS manages to craft some compelling stories and characters between the carnage. Solid world building creates a neat sci-fi universe that's worthy to explore. One exceptional arc calls to mind Heart of Darkness and the Vietnam War. A fun little world that I hope gets kicked up notch in OVAs.
