Synopsis

Released in 1985, this OVA tells a critical part of the story between the TV show's Uoodo and Kummen arcs. Although the TV series covered the Red Shoulders in some detail, we didn't get to see much of Chirico's time there or the people involved, and we get both of those here.

As far as formatting is concerned, The Last Red Shoulder makes no attempt to produce something new for VOTOMS, going so far as to even include the OP from the original anime (albeit a different recording) to emphasise that this is pretty much just an ‘episode 53’, rather than something new to change any foundations. And in that regard, it does its job well, this OVA is pretty much just as good as any episode of VOTOMS was, and the 52 minute runtime gives them more breathing room to emphasise the episode’s B plot, albeit with mixed results.

Set some time after the Uoodo arc, the ...

Mixed Feelings
Unlike the Red Shoulder Document, The Last Red Shoulder feels like a totally necessary part of the Votoms series, and I can't imagine it not being a part of the story. Seriously, it's odd everything in this wasn't in the actual series, as it's pretty important. Regardless, watch Red Shoulder Document first, as this has an important connection to information only shown in that OVA. This OVA takes place between the Woodo and Kunmen arcs (after episode 13), and ideally should be watched between them.

For starters, there are more significant plot developments in this than most single episodes of the Votoms series, and that's a ...
