    Schwarzes Marken vs Muv-Luv Alternative Total Ecilpse
    Like another person who reviewed had a Deja-Vu this version of Arc that mimic's http://www.crunchyroll.com/total-eclipse

    This has a different vibe from Total Eclipse as that version of the story line is set in near present day timeline. Which makes this version a prequel as its from an early timeline and judging by this arc revolving around the 666th TSF Squadron.

    Great anime! Should watch if a mecha fan you are.
    This anime while set in the Muv-Luv universe is mainly focused on the combat and I have really enjoyed it so far! It's mainly so far been all combat and shows the harshness of Eastern Germany set towards the beginning of the BETA forces invasion. If you are a fan of Mecha or Muv luv I suggest watching this!

    Brilliant Start imo, from a fresh perspective
    Unlike other reviewers, I am not comparing this to another anime/manga because I havent seen the ones theyre comparing it too - however, as a fresh face, I am very happy with this.

    This contains minor spoilers in which i speak in terms which youll learn within 10mins of watching the first episode.

    I do not review often, but couldnt believe the negative reviews against it and I wanted to ...

    The Fight Continues...
    Loved Total Eclipse, re-watched it many times. I'm pretty stoke that this came out, it might not be the same as TE but it's still a Muv-Luv series so I can relate this to TE. Amazed at the new team of characters, 666, known as "Beast." Setting is now in divided Germany, closer to the heart of BETA territories.

    Providing Some Promise...
    After just one episode you get some action, some loss, some backstory and a few moving pieces in the story that keeps interest at an acceptable level.

    Now it seems like war time mech stories with PTSD victims are popular all over again...and I just hope they handle this better than Aldnoah.Zero did.

    Should be able to decide if this is any good within the next few episodes, but the first ...

    Started good - keeps getting better
    I initially rated this to a small 4, after episode 5 a large 4, and after episode 10 I consider this a clear 5. Most of the reviews seems to be more about Total Eclipse rather than this show and the comments simply don't fit my experience of the first 10 episodes. I can't recognize the complaints at all, in the episodes I've watched so far.

    The setting is much darker than TE and by far dark ...

    Grim and Suspenseful
    I liked Total Eclipse, but the tension of the first few episodes gave way to endless training sorties and a slow burning romance story. Schwarzes Marken is a gripping war story, with the terror of the alien BETA being only one of the forces arrayed against the characters. Setting the series in the paranoid police state of early 80's East Germany only ratchets up the tension. Only up to the third ...

    A welcome addition to the lineup
    The show seems to be getting a bit of a mixed rep based on the current reviews. While I am admittedly a big fan of Muv Luv the show without a doubt possesses some strong qualities. A few have complained about the use of CGI and while not the best I've ever seen it is well animated and incorporated well enough that it never takes me out of the action. Bonus points for not pointlessly including CGI ...

    Good for what it is.
    Nothing spectacular in Ep.1 good animation and decent CG. If you don't mind the (obvious) historical inaccuracies and enjoy robots killing laser shooting testicle monsters then by all means watch it, I know I am. (Also more like a 3.5-3.6 than 4 stars)
