Big Battle is a one-shot OVA set after the climax of the original Votoms storyline, but before the epilogue at the end of the series itself. With the Gilgamesh and Balarant forces still trying to advance their PS programs, Chirico and his old friends are forced into one last gladiatorial battle against a special PS and a formidable land battleship.

Cocona's pants are too fucking big, goddamn. That Quentian guy read more

Armored Trooper Votoms: Big Battle - Battle of the Heterogeneous Species (Jesus) is one of many post-series addenda created for the Votoms franchise. Specifically, it's one of the few that take place in the middle of the series despite being written after its conclusion.
