  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    Cryska Barchenowa is Awesome!
    I am not an excellent reviewer so I'll name the most noteworthy things about this anime. First off, this is series is not for everyone, that being said I've followed this anime since it began, at first I was skeptical but grew to love it.

    The first two episodes were really amazing, they bring us to this world where it's being invaded by aliens and show us the tragedies of War. Soon after that ...

    Total Eclipse: The Dark Future
    There's been a lot of strange series that debuted in 2012. If there was another to name, one would definitely be Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse. No, it's not the end of the year (yet) for us but in the world of the Total Eclipse, it's walking down that path. The series is based off a LN (light novel) of the same name and takes place in a science fiction world where mecha, aliens, and hot women ...
