better than gundam!
13 April 2003 | by (detroit) – See all my reviews

gotta say, caught most of Armored Trooper Votoms subbed on the i-channel, just loved it, great music/story/characters. a TON better than any of GUNDAM, one of the best mecha series!!! highly recommended if you are checking out the mecha anime. also see: macross, transformers, gundam, evangelion, rahxephon, candidate for goddess, etc.
