Name a better AT. Pro tip: You can't.
>>17431202My favorite votoms is the Zaku II.
>>17434133>>17434136I read these in the same voice as TROGDOR
presenting Squid from Pachinko, Balarant PS AT
Burglary Dog will always be my favorite
best gun in the franchise
Nothing beats the Scopedog, but I'm also a fan of the Berserga. I can never turn down a good pile bunker.
that PS2 if improved and added MP could be a HELL of an awsome game. Fight on AT or on foot, all those AT to choose from(in addition to their loadout), killing ATs with loads of firearm options, etc
I'm more of a Bloodsucker.
>>17434407Always makes me think of Warhammer 40k.
>>17434407that thing kicked so much ass. the fact it also piloted by amazonian desert chill big guy made it even better
HehNothing personnel, Kid
Half the fun of ATs are how easily customizable they are.
>>17434143NO da NO da NO da
VOTOMS and Titans are about the same size right?Crossover when?
Scoop dog for me
>>17437827my dick is still bleeding from finding that in an artbook
Takahashi is supposedly working on a new animeprepare for more Chirico wank
>>17437827My god I'm in love.
>>17438595Is it even worth doing without the artist that designed the entire franchise?
I wanted to rewatch the show but I'm gonna watch it and the OVAs in chronological order. Sue me. So far the CG in Pailsen files is getting better
>>17438822CRAW... Honestly the CG in Pailsen Files is actually pretty decent as far as I'm concerned. Especially for '08.
Someone post the gif of Chirico shooting another pilot.
Maybe old news but I just noticed they announced another OVA collection.>Genei ~ Phantom Arc, Case; IRVINE, VOTOMS FINDER, Chirico's Return>Mellowlink never
>>17438595Keep your god damn lies for your pals.
Scopedogs are some of the best mechs ever, and small enough to modify in your garage.
>>17442062GodfuckingdammitI dont care if it looks like absolute ass, I want to own mellowlink
The AT tank is cute, CUTE!
>>17442062After the disaster that was the original series release, I'm staying far the fuck away from any future releases from these people.
>>17443169You could always track down the LDs
Testa Rosa, or go home.
>>17445286From where is this image?
>>17448268Where are those from?
>>17443713I dub thee.tankydog.
>>17449033This is awesome. Which anime is it in?
I just watched Armor Hunter mellowlink and really liked it. Haven’t watched any other VOTOMS.What should I watch?
>>17448400Badgers. It was a short internet fan art thing back around 2010 when the the new Votoms OAV's were coming out.>>17449098The Testa Rosa is from the Blue Knight Berserga novel series from the late '80's. As of yet, it is still sadly untranslated. I've had a standing offer since 2008 to lend out my copies to any individual intrepid enough to translate it. I still wait.>>17449326Personally I'd start with the original TV series. Just to warn you it has 52 episodes, came out in 1983, and doesn't necessarily have the biggest animation budget.
>>17449381Thanks. Just watched a couple episodes and it definitely looks like it’s right for me.
Anyone got a link to the google drive?
>>17449542We have a google drive?
>>17449326None, they're all awful. If you need to watch more then go for a one-shot OVA because they're basically the same thing but way shorter.
>>17449590Your opinion, sure>>17449326Just watch the main series, and if by the end of it you dont like whats there, then this franchise isn’t for you. If you do like what you see though, watch the ova’s in release order.
>>17449557I don't know "we", but there was one with the whole G_P release uploaded I'd seen posted around a bunch a while backI thought if any place would have a link, it'd be here
>>17449969Well there's the Torrent I made a while back, I'm not aware of anywhere it is available as a direct download though.
The weapons in votoms are kind of shit desu, for the rest I love scopedogs.
This is Bloodsucker territory now. Scopedog go home.
>>17449033>>17449040Testa Rosa almost doesn't look like an AT anymore. I'd say it's almost bordering on Armored Core.
I'm a scopedog too, uguu.
>>17451195Kind of loses something without the Red Shoulder livery.
>>17453715Yes, you are, you little obsolete Southern scum.>>17437747Only if we can bring as many franchises into the crossover as possible.
>>17443735Then I have to get an LD player and pray that the things work
>>17453183That's what I thought too, it looks like something From would make
>>17453715What's this from?
>>17438595Other than the one episode did one episode of Rinshii Ekoda Chan?
>>17457351Heavy Gear, basically Votoms the game with a heavy dose of pulp. Even being about mechs, its pretty hard in his science, specially if you compare it with Battletech.
>>17457399I really am not a fan of the designs from Finders. I know it's supposed to be a spinoff/alternate universe, but they stand out so much from ATs that they don't even look like they belong to the same franchise.
>>17457547I like them, some good ideas, but the aestethics doesn't quite scratch the itch, I agree.
We will get new Votoms animes? I didn't dislike the AU ones.But please, leave Chirico alone, he deserves it.
>>17459013No we need to see how he handles raising gods child before we say goodbye to Chirico forever.
>>17459787Bersega, Commando Vorct, Irvine sequel/prequel, Ballarant side story and basically anything else is better than more Chirico
>>17457318>>17457372...it pleases me to see my artwork posted to /m/.
>>17459871>BersegaDo we have anything than isn't in moon for this one?>>17459962Hold up. You are a heavy gear artist?
Anyone knows if they make scopedogs for 15mm?
I want to watch Votoms but the (G_P) release looks DNR'd and the only other option is an ISO rip
>>17431204nice, do they have GMs and Gundam.
>>17463998Would it be considered a good marker of your skill if your AT survives long enough for you to be able to personalize it? Even Chirico "son of God" Cuvie trashes ATs on the regular. Granted, he doesn't seem to hold any attachment for whatever machine he's piloting outside of his preference for Scopedogs and Scopedog variants.
>>17464048I imagine scopedogs weren't send to the grind all day everyday, all of them, some units would have more comfy places to guard or opress pesants with some ancient machines to justify scopedogs.But yeah, I think aces would have better acess to gear or something, tough the elite unit of chirico with the red shoulders wasn't that acomadating...
>>17443733What was wrong with it?
>>17466943I haven't checked my copy yet but apparently there are some significant video interlacing issues.
>>17468111Significant is a strong word, but they are there...interlacing is most visible in motion, and votoms isn't overflowing with 24hz action if you now what I mean.
How does this compare to Dougram and Layzner?
Has anyone tried the Votoms RPG?
>>17469445There is a votoms rpg? >>17469398More Dougram than Layzner I would say, at least in feel. Its more based in the MC than in a guerrilla unit and the mechs are incredible replacable tough.
>>17469645roll your save against museru
>>17469713Uh, we have a copy of that?OR any of the votoms books for that matter, there are some in sad panda with some awesome art.
>>17469997I read a digital copy of a comic adaptation of Roots of Ambition a long time ago. I wish I had a physical one.
>>17469997>Uh, we have a copy of that?https://drive.google.com/open?id=16W5mSf4xhK6ygSBr2wgkSWOYaqTVjnCl
>>17470065Oh fuck anon, that's great.Than whatever your believe in bless you.
>>17470068When Chirico tricks out the scopedog with all the dakka he can get.
>>17470091That's a big scopedog.
>>17463982I love the all red lenses.
>>17434133Fuck,where did this one appear?
>>17442062What is Chirico's Return? Never heard of it.
>>17470533VOTOMS: Big Battle
>>17437827That's called Grasshopper: 近藤和久 グラスホッパー It appeared in a 1 volume manga in the 90's called Over Gloss (Overgrowth?) and there was a 1/35 garage kit from Kotobukiya. The original drawing and kit looks less like a Scopedog.
>>17471812Oh my, hi handsome.
>ctrl+f>Nobody has disproved this mans claim by posting Fatty yet.Allow me.
>>17472354Based fatty poster
>>17471812Huh... Never heard of it. Could you perhaps elaborate on this "Over Gloss"?
Are the US BDs worth getting? I know they're SD, but I've also seen some reviews saying they have motion blur and other issues.
>>17472636I ordered it from Mandarake last week but haven't received it. I can't read Japanese so I only got it for the pictures. The katakana name is オーバーグロス (oobaagurosu).
>>17472745They look fucking awful. The interlacing and ghosting makes any scene with motion a blurry mess. It carries over to the OVAs as well and there's been no word of a rerelease/fix.
>>17473026Alright thanks. No point buying when I've already got a better version for free.
>>17473015>>17473012Those are pretty great not gonna lie.
>>17473011Cool. If you can keep us posted that'd be nice.
>>17474082Both pictures are the same completed model (the camo and optional equipment are identically placed).
>>17474792Here are pictures from a yahoo.jp auction.
For me it's Vann Viel.
>>17471812>Gundam chest ventsBLASPHEME
>>17475375It may be more Gundam-related than VOTOMs-related. Many of Kondo's manga Gundam re-designs were closer to Armored Trooper size than Mobile Suit size
>>17475311>>17475315Cool. So is this a proper VOTOMS spin off or it's own thing? It looks pretty cool either way.
>>17471652Many thanks my famalam.
>>17475904In the same universe according to the Japanese wikipedia. I believe it's related to the origin of Rectioneter (Blue Knight) somehow.
It's a shame that there's so much Votoms related material out there that doesn't deal with Chirico, yet we can't read it because EOP.
>>17476592English Only Person
>>17476597I see.We can look at the pretty pictures at least.
>>17475311>>17475315>>17475322>>17475332>>17475374Nice, very nice, from where did you get them?
What that blue knight bersega? Is there anything in english about it?
>>17478418All I got are some excerpts from the Votoms Viewer's guide from old Tim Eldred.
>>17478650>>17478592So light novels and some garage kits? Sounds like a wild ride too.
>>17478693>https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4257764023Nice.>>17478704That's some expensive kits, shame the scale too.
>>17478650>Although BLUE KNIGHT has not yet become anime>in the event the series finally goes to videoHe was so hopeful about it getting animated ;_;
>>17478862>Tfw they resurected chirico instead of making the bersega ovas.It hurts, Chirico deserved the pace and it would expanded better the universe.
>>17479011It almost feels like the Shining Heresy fiasco really put a knife in the VOTOMS franchise. They seemed to have lost all of the momentum they had built up with the OVAs following the TV series. Then again, I could be wrong seeing as SH didn't come out until 1994, five years after the last '80s OVA.
>>17479036>Shining Heresy fiasco.It was a fiasco? I tougth the last votoms was ten years ago with finder and Irvin.
>>17479167IIRC Shining Heresy was supposed to have double the episode count it eventually got because of production problems and disagreements. VOTOMS was dead for fourteen years after Shining Heresy.
>>17478815>shame the scale too.How so? 1/60, 1/48, 1/35 and 1/24 are traditional VOTOMs scales. Bandai fucked it up with 1/20.
>>17480135Agreed, they shoulda done a better traditional scale.
>>17480135I want my 1/100 scale for votoms for my miniatures games anon.
>>17479167Phantom Arc and Alone Again we're fairly recent, weren't they?
>>17478862It did get a game on the Playstation back in Japan at least.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q4Dx0gGcKg>>174811552010
