    Slow anime, but a good slow anime
    This anime started for great and got even better, if you the type of person that enjoys character progression then this is the anime for you. it does carry on slow but its good, great animation along with good story telling, when the fight scenes are done they are done amazing but are far and few between, the ending was ok, but the cliff hanger made no sense. would have loved more seasons but it ...

    Interesting 1st array into the Muv-Luv multiverse
    Before I begin, I watched the entire series before writing this review, and it's my first time in the Muv-Luv universe. Overall, I enjoyed watching this series: enough to research a little about the overall Muv-Luv universe without spoiling myself on the other entries too much.

    Total Eclipse is a side story in the Alternative (3rd) arc of the Muv-Luv trilogy. Although I have yet ...

    I enjoyed this show.
    I liked it. Hope they make some more episodes. Not much with the BETA was resolved and I really want to see what happens with that war. Though it did feel like it switched the show up quite a bit. You think it will be about a gruesome fight for survival but it mostly follows a completely different theme (Ill let you find out for yourself) Needless to say I really would like to see more about the ...

    Why would you do this to us?
    If you didnt watch yet, just watch the first two episodes and skip the others

    Well this anime was recommended to me since I'm a big fan of Real Mecha shows (Gundam, Macross....etc), at the first episode I thought well its about school girls plotting Mechs to kill Aliens, that is AWESOME!!!

    The second episode the action started and the girls started to die and one of the deaths just made me ...

    Total Eclipse of the lame
    The main character is named Bridges -Hey thats my name! Good -well starting in the 3rd ep, it started with a young girl named Yui-. It has mechs, better. Mechs are used to fight an seemingly unstoppable horde of alien life forms -BETA- Awesome........wait they only fight the BETA in like 5 or 6 eps out of 25, spend the rest of the time testing a proto-type mech or changing Bridges into a better ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...
