    A Terrible Bait and Switch
    Even the Japanese otaku fled from this thing, and with good reason. It starts out as though it's going to be a fantastic series with mechs, aliens, drama, action and intense moments. It has the hallmarks of everything that makes an anime great.

    Then it suddenly, without warning, becomes a harem anime, consisting of every shallow cliche in the book. Every female suddenly and inexplicably falls ...

    Tolerable; a time sink at best
    This is a classic case of an anime promising much but delivering so little. The plot is written with expert technique in the mechanisms used, but is covers the wrong parts of the story they built. It's as if all creativity fled the writers shortly after establishing the backstory.
    Women become largely useless, incapable of even climbing ladders, as they all fall over themselves chasing after the ...

    Not the same old mecha plot. Fun to watch!
    This anime is great. Doesn't use the same classic Gundam plot with some kid (especially schoolkid) gets into an all power super robot and he's the only one able to drive it.
    If there's one thing that makes this robot anime stand out from the rest is the gore. There is real gore in this and I haven't seen good anime with gore in years.
    The mechs have an excellent design and the fights keep me at ...

    One of The Best Mechas
    Of the dozens of mecha animes I've seen over the years, the gruesome and realistic nature of Total Eclipse is rare, if you're looking for an excellent distopian mecha this is truly the anime for you.

    Many critique it for following the relations that develop with the women of the story, but these only serve to fit the whole of the anime and to only make a deeper connection with the characters of ...

    Loved the action and the change in pace.
    I honestly loved this entire series, I thought it was a brilliant job in getting the viewer hooked the initial few episodes, and then slowly takes on a slightly different route with the story. Now I've always been a sucker for romance in mechas, and I think this one is better then people give credit for. Despite having all these other girls eventually fawning over him, Yuuya tends to keep siding ...

    Pretty good drama mecha.
    I liked this show. It's not everybody's cup of tea, but it's definitely NOT a harem show as others has suggested. The action scenes are good and the story is interesting. The show did slow down from the first two episodes, but remained interesting enough for me to continue watching it.

    Unexpectedly bad....
    First two episodes led me to think that i was about to discover one of those beautiful jewels. I thought i had found another one of those great hidden animes. But no.

    I recommend anyone to watch the first two episodes, they are AWESOME, but I dare you to go all the way to episode 8. You will be just waiting for something to happen, and then you realize that nothing happens, and that it is ...

    Amazing start into dissapointment
    So, I love mecha genre shows. But not all are up to part on what should qualify to be included in the good section. Total Eclipse falls quite short of the bar.

    The beginning of the series is actually quite exciting graphic and emotional. The writers built the characters so well at the beginning and then things start to happen.
