    Another Awesome Entry in the Mecha Genre
    I've watched a lot of mecha anime from Neon Genesis Evangelion to all the various Gundam series and I was really impressed with Total Eclipse. It's not the best mecha in the world but it's not a bad one either. It has your standard fan service with hot female characters and giant robots tearing the enemy to shreds. But what I really liked about it was that it didn't take place in some far off ...

    It was pretty good, and then episode 3 happened
    This anime isn't terrible at all like the rating I gave it represents, I'm not a big fan on mech animes, but this one surprisingly caught my eye quickly and didn't disapoint with a nice story line. However, that storyline turned out to be a prologue to something totally different that leaves the first cast of characters you got used to....trashed.

    Afterward things started going downhill with an ...

    Had potential based on the first two eps.
    It seems like this anime used 90% of its budget and creativity in its first two or three episodes. After the initial intro of the story, it turns into a crappy show that has almost nothing to do with the initial main character. Which seems completely weird as the anime makes you care about the main character through the first two episodes, and then leaves you hanging after that.

    The new set of ...

    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 ...

    Did you ever review something then came back later and said "What was I thinking?"
    This is what I originally wrote:
    Total Eclipse is an alternate history story beginning in 1967 about the invasion of earth by the extraterrestrials know by humans as the Beta. The first episode covers the years from 1967 to 1998. The story revolves around a young female retainer of the Shogun in the Empire of Japan's capitol Kyoto, studying to become a soldier and mecha pilot. It's obvious in the ...

    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.

    Kind of lacks... momentum.
    I am up to the 4th episode & I honestly can't see this picking up speed if it hasn't by now. It's not entirely bad, though watching it I was wanting to see a mech with some sex appeal sure. It does hold a bit of sex appeal. But, I didn't start watching this only for that. This show drudges on like a car with a flat tire, slowly moving forward while seeing some things along the way but utterly you ...

    Total Eclipse Review 8.2/10
    This anime might be Cliché and has the normal big boobs and Hot girls and giant robots, But This anime is not that bad. Instead of criticizing it so much , watch it, its pretty good and I enjoyed it.
    Whats it about: (I'm gonna put this as simple as possible) Its about the world being taken over by some monster/alien life, humanity is fighting back,Russia, Europe and Asia are taken over already. ...

    enjoyable. I wish it continued on from where it ended :/
    Like someone else said its deceptive, like its going to be focused on the aliens and mechs and then turns into a harem anime.

    I say, whats wrong with harem animes? I liked this show. It isnt like they completely abandoned the aliens and mechs. It should've been expected to be more ecchi than mecha when one of the first scenes are skin tight uniforms clinging around girls breasts lol.

    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 ...
