    Two Stars might be too generous.
    The fact that so many people gave this series a 5 is incredibly sad to me. Maybe the creator of the show is purposefully going after a specific audience that i'm not even close to being part of, and maybe I'm missing something.

    There is no character development. I've given this show hours of time, and so far all I know is that one main character is a racist, the other main character is also a ...

    "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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Cool start but turns into the worst
    Really good start, it showed how brutal the beta(alien things) can be and showed a lot about some of the characters, and hell it shifted characters really well. But then, every EP was just a god damn drama fest characters get stupid and cry and blubber over the dumbest things. I stopped watching it half way in and looked at the last episode and the ending was dreadful. Do not watch this. (I'm not ...

    What amazing potential... But in the end, disappointing.
    TL;DR - This show really just boils down to a high-school-esque romantic drama that has mecha involved on the side. The large setting is a global war; mankind vs. aliens, with an international group of pilots working together to try and make a breakthrough that can win the war. Occasionally, the anime remembers its own story, and all the heaving bosoms and awkward blushes will stop for a moment ...

    The anime isn't too consistent on how it comes off.
    Spoiler alert!

    Okay, summary of story first. Humanity is losing the war against aliens invading and tearing a hole in humanity's a**hole (all of Europe, decimated), people are fighting them with mechas because they have overpowered anti-aircraft snipers, and these things brutally eat everything in their path with all sizes of forces, even Godzilla size aliens! It's total madness.
    Now, skip ...
