Could someone please tell me the order I should watch the Votoms series,ovas and movies?I am interested in the order by release date.I know the 52 episode series goes first but after that I am a bit lost.There are so many prequels,sequels and alternate version that I can't figure out which comes before and after.Please don't write the series in storyline chronology order because imo the best way to watch a series is the order in which it was released since the creators have that order in mind.Thank you very much for the help.

I just watched the series, and presumed everything else was just filler.

Ok thanks,this seems helpful enough.
From what I understand,the summary ova's just show the main series story.
So assuming that the order I should watch it is:
Soukou Kihei Votoms
The Last Red Shoulder
Big Battle
Red Shoulder Document
Kykou Ryouhei
Kakuyakou taru itan
Pailsen Files
Votoms Finder
Case;Irvine
Gen'ei Hen
Koei Futatabi

Can anyone confirm this?

You should watch the main series first, because the prequels spoil stuff about the main character.

Easy. Release order watchers have always reason. You get to experience the saga as the creator was crafting it, and as fans were discovering it. So :

- Armored Trooper Votoms TV (1983) [TV 52 Episodes]

- Armored Trooper Votoms : The Last Red Shoulder (1985) [OVA]
- Armored Trooper Votoms : Big Battle (1986) [OVA]
- Armored Trooper Votoms : Roots Of Ambition (1988) [OVA] (chronologically a prequel to the series)

- Armored Trooper Votoms : Shining Heresy (1994) [OVA 05 Episodes]
- Armored Trooper Votoms : Pailsen Files (2007) [OVA 12 Episodes OR The recap movie] (chronologically a prequel to the series)
- Armored Trooper Votoms : Phantom Chapter (2010) [OVA 06 Episodes]
- Armored Trooper Votoms : Alone Again (2011) [OVA]

(Nothing is filler, except perhaps Big Battle)

- Spinoffs, unrelated to main story :

Armor Hunter Mellowlink
Votoms Finder
Votoms: Case; Irvine

How can something that isn't an adaptation have filler? Did you think the rest of it was just beach episodes?
