    Total Eclipse: Why should you watch it?
    To jump right in here, for starters the anime is very well done, the story flows very well, and art is excellent. I havn't seen very many animes as of yet that has taken the Mecha genre, and turned it into something with a very well designed plot that will drag you in no matter what episode you are on. It also takes what you would normally see as good vs evil, and equalizes them out so instead of ...

    "I'm too sexy for a story."
    While I was a little surprised the first two episodes were completely different than the episodes to come, it's early on in the series and that can change. Lt. Takamura is still a main character, though not the primary focus. Either way, it's not the fact that there was a change that bothers me. It's the fact that the change seemingly was for the worse.

    The new cast of characters is alright, ...

    Interesting Show With Some Nice Play On History
    This first episode spends a lot of time setting up the shows history. We learn a lot about how very different this world is from ours. In this one, aliens attack Earth and over the course of several decades slow take over the world, bringing humanity to the brink of being an endangered species. Then the school girls who pilot the giant mechs come in. And yes, they where skin tight piloting ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Could have been as good as Attack on Titan
    The first few episodes were amazing. The Beta reminded me of the Titans in 'Attack on Titan. Gruesome deaths being hunted and eaten by the Beta. Occasional glimpses of brilliance kept me watching until the end, but the story quickly turns into a typical romance filled with all the usual cliche's. If they would have kept the Beta as the main storyline, it would have been fine. Instead the lead ...

    ~muu-luu alternative~
    3 separate story lines not well integrated. The 3rd & finally plot was extraneous and made little sense. The 2nd was okay but did not flow well from the 1st plot. Character development carried this series, the women especially. This had the potential to be totally awesome if the story line had been carried by the plot / style of the first 2 episodes.
    After a 2nd viewing, I found this ...

    4 1/2 stars really but I can't do that so 5
    Good anime, but not without its completely cheesy moments. Story writing is well, and at least It doesn't thrive on the "with the power of friendship!" theme most anime piggy back on these days. Had to give up on Fairy Tail because of that. Keep up the good job

    Best Anime Mix of Story and Mecha fights
    I would rate this anime right up there with Full Metal Panic and Gundam! This one is very well done. The mecha fights are bold and don't over power the overall anime. The anime has just the right amount of story to make the styling great! Love it!
