Sortie Break: VOTOMS CASE IRVINE audio quicklook.

Hey it’s Clawshrimpy, brining you a new regular feature, the “Sortie Break.” Sortie Break are small audio quicklooks at Mecha anime I’ve watched and are intended as short audio “quicklook” reviews, in between major video releases.


for this Sortie Break, get ready for out of place Code Geass and Gundam type action and loud (also out of place) melodrama, and gigantic claw backpacks as Sunrise eviscerates another of their IPs that dares to be different, as we look at the trainwreck that is Armored Trooper VOTOMS CASE IRVINE.

Thanks for listening, the Gundam SEED 46-50 review vlog should be out soon, enjoy this in the mean time!

    Ok, this shit just pisses me off. I can’t believe Sunrise did this to VOTOMS. I think you understated something, Sunrise doesn’t think that every single IP must be like Gundam. They think every single IP MUST BE LIKE SEED!

    Also, these so-called “Char clones” are nothing like the man. The only thing they seem to have in common is that they are blonde and wear a mask. That’s it. It’s like Sunrise has forgotten there were other aspects to Char’s character.

      Well, I meant “Char proxy” in the sense of…..a marketing perspective more than a storytelling trope. It’s like they went “You know what VOTOMS needs? a affaby evil rival with a mask that gives dramatic evil speeches! It makes tons of Money for Gundam, VOTOMS needs to get with the times to be profitable.”. when you think about it, though Paygan is more like Lelouche. because of his faux “DRAMATIC” speeches, and the funny thing is Paygan was voiced by the same japanese voice actor as Lelouche. VOTOMS is NOT a universe that really supports a lot of…..hammyness. it felt out of place.
