News Scotland Loves Animation Adds Votoms Movie in Edinburgh, plus guests.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Ryousuke Takahashi, who was the original creator of the Votoms universe, and planning producer Shunsuke Oiji. Takahashi will also appear in a seperate morning session on Sunday October 16 to discuss anime in general. (Apart from Votoms, his anime credits include Gasaraki, Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto and FLAG.) The Edinburgh part of the event runs from October 14 to 16, and Scotland Loves Animation says that tickets will go on sale on Friday.
The hero of Armored Trooper Votoms: Pailsen Files is Chirico Cuvie, a VOTOMS robot pilot assigned to a new squad of elite soldiers. The new team is an experiment, sent on seemingly impossible missions. Compiled from a six-volume video series, the film is a prequel to Sunrise's classic 1983-1984 "real robot" anime, Armored Trooper Votoms.
