Badgers. It was a short internet fan art thing back around 2010 when the the new Votoms OAV's were coming out.

>>17449098
The 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.

>>17449326
Personally 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.
>>
>>17449381
Thanks. Just watched a couple episodes and it definitely looks like it’s right for me.

If you need to watch more then go for a one-shot OVA because they're basically the same thing but way shorter.

>>17449590
Your opinion, sure

>>17449326
Just 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.

Heavy Gear, basically Votoms the game with a heavy dose of pulp.

I 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.

Would 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.

I 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...

It 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.
>>
>>17479167
IIRC 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.
