    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 ...

  • 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.

  • Good Begining, but a Terrible Follow Up
    I'll admit that this anime has great animation, music, sound FX, and pretty much every other technical detail is top knotch, but I have many issues with the narative itself. First of all, for a story about alien monsters invading the world there is a suprising lack of ALIEN MONSTERS (known here as BETA). Most episodes don't have a single BETA in it at all!!! In fact, when they show up they are ...

    Just not what I was expecting of the title.....
    Generally disappointed. Was expecting more.....

    Personally left after episode 3.
    Maybe supposed to be a different story, but was hoping for something other then this.
    ------------------------------------

    Don't wanna say more.... Just disappointed.........

    Total Eclipse of the Heart
    I decided to watch this at the suggestion of a fan of the series who gave it a high recommendation.

    I'm very glad I did. The anime over all turns out to be really good, especially if you can make it past the, first few episodes.

    It starts out a little rough. Everyone's getting slaughtered, our main character is going all emo, making cliche mistakes.

    And don't get me wrong, the anime ...

    I'm kinda disappointed.
    The first two episodes were great, led me to believe that this was gonna be a awesome anime series with the human race surviving against man eating aliens but NOPE. Turns into a harem fanservice thing right afterwards. Got up to episode 7 because I gave up on watching further. If i'm in the mood for a harem type anime? Sure I'll pick up where I left off on Total Eclipse. 2 stars instead of one ...

    Great Story and Action Scene's
    And I do not understand where people are getting a Harem out of this. This show presents a great story, and it goes in depth with the characters background to show the audience why the characters are they way they are. If you like stories about sinister governments, mecha sci-fi weapons, human experimentation, alien invasion then you found one that encompasses it all. yes there is romance in it, ...

    I liked it but......
    I thought this anime was decently good. I don't know what everyone means by the first 2 episodes being great. Personally I thought they were good but not like good enough to make the other episodes look bad. I kept watching it and I enjoyed it. Sure the story is a bit predictable at times and the story did sort of get off topic like humans fighting aliens to humans fighting each other. Sadly ...

    Two episodes of great, followed by bleh
    Talk about "can't judge a book by it's cover." The first two episodes are great, and I would heartily recommend JUST those to anyone. In a short time we see a very mature examination on what being in a near hopeless situation can do to people. The writing is good, the animation top notch, and it leaves you wanting to know what happens next.

    Then episode 3 begins and nearly everything that made ...

    Love, Bugs and Mecha
    Ok this show starts fantastic, morphs into a political drama with harem elements, then finishes absolutely on fire. You have to watch at leash half of the series to be able to get any meaning out of this.

    The story is the extension of the Muv-Luv multiverse, so the story is going to have romance, with light harem portions, hey it's Muv-Luv. However, the mecha look good, the battles are ...
