HIDIVE announced on Friday that it will stream the Armored Trooper Votoms anime series. The first three episodes will premiere on July 28 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The series will be available in the United States Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and other select territories.
Section23 Films' Maiden Japan imprint announced at Anime Expo earlier this month that it plans to release the series on home video. NuTech Digital and later Central Park Media previously released Armored Trooper Votoms on DVD.
HIDIVE describes the story:
The series revolves around Chirico Cuvie, a battle-worn soldier who accidentally becomes involved in a mission to steal military secrets from allied forces. However, during the mission, he discovers that the real reason behind the assignment is a beautiful woman locked inside a container. Barely escaping alive and running from his army, he'll have to fight to unravel the truth behind the betrayal, the mysterious woman, and the conspirators who will do anything to silence him.
The 52-episode series originally aired in 1983-1984. Ryousuke Takahashi directed the series at Nippon Sunrise and Sunrise.
