Synopsis

After armored trooper pilot Chirico Cuvie is given orders to transfer to Planet Odon, he and all of the other new recruits are sent into a simulated battle to test their abilities. However, this 'simulated battle' turns out to be a serious fight to eliminate those without the necessary skills. Chirico survives along with just three others, despite the fact that he fought while injured. It soon becomes apparent that this is not the first time he has survived against incredible odds, a fact that Colonel Peruzen wishes to exploit. But is Chirico truly immortal?

The gritty realism has always been the highlight of Votoms, and I hoped it would be realized and taken even more seriously here. I'm satisfied that they've kept this value, at the ...

This OVA was much better to me than the preceding, The Last Red Shoulder. It was incredible and there was so much tension the whole time. It's actually kind of funny how when everyone learns Chirico is an abnormal survivor they all try to kill him (it's comedic how extreme the military goes to test if he really is an abnormal survivor).

This was strong from beginning to end. I can't really say I had a favorite part it was all good and the tension never ends from beginning to end.

This story takes place before The Last Red Shoulder (and is the earliest story so far ...
