There actually was a DVD released, including a collectors edition set that I still kick myself for not buying when I had the chance, but as the company that did it apparently went out of business shortly afterwards, not many were printed and they're hard to find. I did finally find a regular set of DVDs on ebay, but it took a couple years.

Hopefully, if this becomes a bit more mainstream, someone else will pick up the liscense and re-release them.

Awesome. Two side-stories and another Chirico. Looking forward to it!

I read somewhere that TBH was subbed in the old VHS distribution days, but no ones ever done it in digital media. Maybe attention from all the new stuff lately will prompt a new DVD release of the series in Japan, and in turn inspire fansubbers to actually do it. One can dream, anyway.

More Votoms is always a good thing, though I think those first two OVAs will feel kinda weird, considering Chirico won't be in them (afaik).
Now if only someone subbed the Brilliant Heretic...
Yep been waiting on a sub of TBH for awhile now. Seems that it does not exist.

Definitely excited for some new Votoms. Too bad it looks that there will be no Chirico, but more Votoms is always a good thing.
