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.

Clicking on BIGGU BATTERUUUU was really nostalgic for me.The OVA side-story feels just like an extended episode of Votoms down to the music. Hearing the familiar music and sounds, from the whirring Scopedog "skates" to the episode title jingle, made my heart do flip-flops. It delivers on that promise of a good time that comes with the series, and I wasn't disappointed: The C Team fights a land battleship.

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

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. Big Battle fits in chronologically between the one year time span before the series epilogue. The great thing about it is that it can be considered canon without disrupting the original ending at all.

On the other hand, this means that nothing major to the main storyline happens in Big Battle. Then again, Votoms never really relied on its continuity so much ...

AlI right, I thought this OVA was going to be dumb with this kind of name.

It opened strongly in the battling arena (and that's what I thought this was going to be about) but just turned into Chirico ending up fighting a "land battleship" piloted by a crazy guy with a grudge against the Red Shoulders, like a bull seeing a red cape.

There was nothing new learned about the world from this and it seemed completely pointless and the action was extremely boring.

People watch this show for mech on mech combat not to see a mech fighting some giant Star Wars kind of mobile crawler.
