  • 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 ...

    One of The Best Mechas
    Of the dozens of mecha animes I've seen over the years, the gruesome and realistic nature of Total Eclipse is rare, if you're looking for an excellent distopian mecha this is truly the anime for you.

    Many critique it for following the relations that develop with the women of the story, but these only serve to fit the whole of the anime and to only make a deeper connection with the characters of ...

    Loved the action and the change in pace.
    I honestly loved this entire series, I thought it was a brilliant job in getting the viewer hooked the initial few episodes, and then slowly takes on a slightly different route with the story. Now I've always been a sucker for romance in mechas, and I think this one is better then people give credit for. Despite having all these other girls eventually fawning over him, Yuuya tends to keep siding ...

    Amazing start into dissapointment
    So, I love mecha genre shows. But not all are up to part on what should qualify to be included in the good section. Total Eclipse falls quite short of the bar.

    The beginning of the series is actually quite exciting graphic and emotional. The writers built the characters so well at the beginning and then things start to happen.

    I'm kinda disappointed.
    The first two episodes were great, led me to believe that this was gonna be a awesome anime series with the human race surviving against man eating aliens but NOPE. Turns into a harem fanservice thing right afterwards. Got up to episode 7 because I gave up on watching further. If i'm in the mood for a harem type anime? Sure I'll pick up where I left off on Total Eclipse. 2 stars instead of one ...

  • One twist too many...
    I think setting with a majority of the episodes toward conflicts between countries may have been its downfall if no additional seasons are made. They should have stuck with the main plot line the way the series began. Overall it wasn't bad.

    Simply Amazing, Hooked after First Episode
    The first episode got me hooked, I couldn't stop watching. It was so great, probably one of my favorite animes ever! I highly recommend it to any fan of guns, explosions and Sci-Fi. There is also some romance for those who like that as well. Relating to a character wasn't hard.

  • a well played balance
    this is an action packed romance story with a lot of blood and (censored) gore. there is fan service a-plenty, however there are only two episodes in which they smack you in the face with it. the rest of the time it is really kept on the DL, which is nice because it doesn't distract you from the actual story. the animation quality is splendid and consistent even in lower quality streams. as far as ...
