  • Good, but needs more
    Total Eclipse is a fun Mech series with a reasonably solid story, interesting characters, good art and is well written. I felt the first couple of episodes were a little shaky as it tried to set the scene, but then it settled in well and was very enjoyable. I only have two complaints about this series - 1) the 2 episodes thrown in for no purpose other than so they can get their quota of fan ...

  • Not exactly what I expected
    Total Eclipse did have a Blue Gender feel to it. I thought it started off strong but ended fairly weak. Total Eclipse did most things ok but nothing great. It really focused on the relationship building among the team with a slight bit of romance and mecha mixed in. The show had what seemed to be major and more interesting themes but didn't really address them ( ie the BETA and the deal with ...

    Views or Ratings, It's Your Choice
    [Message me your arguement to my review and we'll discuss it I'm sure.]

    Though this anime has not had a "long" series like the most popular anime such as Naruto, Bleach, Gintama, etc. It has and had the qualities of an anime that viewers will love.

    The creators used the typical Mecha storyline, Earth is invaded by aliens and humans rise to the occasion. I get that it isn't what some may ...

  • A Very Ambiguous Ending
    There's a lot that could be said about "Total Eclipse", both negative and positive. It starts out as a traditional mecha anime: giant robots fighting off a horde of alien invaders called "BETA". As the story progresses, the focus is taken away from the battle against the BETA; eventually becoming more of a romance than anything. If there's a chance that you're coming into this anime hoping for an ...

    ~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. 3.5 stars

    Nice Anime, but quality tapers off a bit..
    Great anime from the get go. Has less of a cookie cutter template then some of the other shonen stuff that has been churned out in recent years.

    Oh sure its got aliens, mechs, and a gruff lad with a torrid past as the main protagonist.. but tbh its a lot of good fun that keeps you on the edge of your seat. They even do a POV switch from another "main" character.

    What I don't like are the ...

    Left with a craving.
    Total Eclipse is a well writen and highly well drawn. Each episode developes the characters more and more and at the end of this season I'm left with an anxious anticipation for season two....*.* x,O

    Awesome need season 2!
    This anime was by far my favorite and the love story between Cryska and Yui for Yuuya was awesome. Definitely put a lot more then just brutal fighting into the plot. I enjoyed the beta and the creepy look they had which also put another twist into the plot how the humans had to survive creating these new weapons to fight them off. I could go on about this anime for days haha but it definitely has ...
