    Aimed at young people who don't think about plot
    I will admit, the first few episodes were grimy and excellent, but the plot takes a turn for the worst...

    Basic plot synopsis is pretty bad, events that occur don't really make sense from a logical point of view. Therefore, the only people to enjoy this anime are people young/naive enough to buy into it. The ecchi is a bit over the top and the fight scenes aren't particularly done well. ...

    This is a pathetic attempt.
    This is an anime adaption of a masterpiece of a Visual Novel. And it soils the ''Muv-luv Alternative'' name in every way possible. IT IS AS INCONSISTENT AS A KID RIDING A UNICYCLE WITH HIS FACE (Lets now calm down and continue on.), failed at following the source material (Trying to follow it, and failing, is different from not following it at all.), badly written characters, and it wasn't ...

    This anime is awesome
    worth watching in my opinion, it gives an interesting experience in the sense that no one is a total idiot, clueless maybe, but idiotic no. Although the main story is a very serious, the side plots can sometimes add a humor quality to the story. Very entertaining.

    One of the best Animes I would say!
    Such an amazing anime. From action to drama to comedy and also romantic. This series has a lot of action packed scenes and also hilarious in the most parts. There are parts that really gets you upset. The sad parts really gets to you, makes you tear up a bit even if you're a MANLY man. The concept of mobile suits to fight the enemies are just awesome, even though its kind of a bite off of mobile ...

    Awsome anime, keep them coming
    Total Eclipse is one of the best animes I have seen so far, not to mention has a kick ass intro song. Got the fights with the beta's, the love-hate triangle forming between main guy char, the LT, and the tall Russian girl. Though the first 2 ep. was a bit sad, namly the 2nd one.

    To me, good show with awesome mechs
    Regardless of what other people say, I still very much like this show. Though, its mainly because i'm such a huge Muv-Luv fan. I understand where people are coming from saying they want more action like in the first 2 episodes, but you people have to realize this show is slated for 26 eps (from what i've looked up), and you all are just jumping the gun rating something low when its not even ...

    Amazing Anime if you like Mecha sci fi kind of stories
    I had very low expectations for this show because the description of the plot and the trailer didn't look very exciting. Boy, was I wrong. I won't spoil the fun for anyone by giving highlights of the plot, but if you like shocking origin stories similar to how Ga Rei Zero started, you will be very pleased with this anime.

    In a way the show feels very 90's to me, with tons of fan service and ...

  • More than just a Mecha anime
    You cannot say this is not at it's core a Mecha anime, but it has many other facets.

    Even when faced with an external alien threat, mankind's greatest enemy is itself. Faction's trying to gain out of the predicament, and old hatreds don't die. Even when it is harmful to the total effort, factions work to screw each other over, and you never know who you should trust.

    It is also in the ...

  • This Anime Doesn't Know What It Wants To Be
    It seems like an apocalyptic world with harem aspects, then it seems like a harem with apocalyptic aspects. All the female roles, including the strong and stubborn female lead, fall in love with the protagonist and it can really hamper on the experience for people who came to watch robots fight monsters. This anime is a rollercoaster, having its high moments and really low moments. I'm not going ...

    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 ...
