    Starts strong, turns into a boring mess
    The first two episodes seemed to promise some nice Starship Troopers-esque bug-hunt mixed with melodrama and fan service, unfortunately the vast majority of the rest of the season up to episode ten (where I threw in the towel) is all very poorly written melodrama and almost no bug hunt and some really poorly done fan service. It seems only the hard-core Muv-Luv VN fans can appreciate this ...

    It was pretty good, and then episode 3 happened
    This anime isn't terrible at all like the rating I gave it represents, I'm not a big fan on mech animes, but this one surprisingly caught my eye quickly and didn't disapoint with a nice story line. However, that storyline turned out to be a prologue to something totally different that leaves the first cast of characters you got used to....trashed.

    Afterward things started going downhill with an ...

    Had potential based on the first two eps.
    It seems like this anime used 90% of its budget and creativity in its first two or three episodes. After the initial intro of the story, it turns into a crappy show that has almost nothing to do with the initial main character. Which seems completely weird as the anime makes you care about the main character through the first two episodes, and then leaves you hanging after that.

    The new set of ...

    A good diversion from the norm
    This anime reminds me of Break blade movie series. Not as well thought out by the directors as far as plot continuity ,but a fun watch . I look forward to more of the series !
    It has a somewhat grittier feel than most Mecha anime which gives it the different edge I like

    Worth a gander for sure
    The episodes released so far are very interesting. The plot in the beginning made me think it was going in a different direction but the back story is fundamental to understanding the present and i think it is something a lot of anime's tend to leave out or cut to short. Characters are easy to get attached to and fun to follow. Can't wait for the next episodes to come out....WHY MUST I WAIT *Tear*

    It's one that winds up slow then throws Everything at you once. Detailed Report on EVERYTHING.
    As I saide Episode 1 and most of 2 are winding up, and I was in doubt, but as its telling the Story of one of the Main chatacters (At that time) its needed! Let me say The real Anime "Total Eclipse" Doesnt start until Episode 3 and you need 1&2 to explain the back story of that main character of those episodes.
    This Anime is going to start having Twists later on but action is a given, for now ...

    "I'm too sexy for a story."
    While I was a little surprised the first two episodes were completely different than the episodes to come, it's early on in the series and that can change. Lt. Takamura is still a main character, though not the primary focus. Either way, it's not the fact that there was a change that bothers me. It's the fact that the change seemingly was for the worse.

    The new cast of characters is alright, ...

    One of the best shows from the summer just got more awesome!
    MuvLuv Alternative Total Eclipse was one of those shows that looked great when I first saw the first PV trailer. It's proven to be one of the best animes I've seen in awhile.

    One thing I enjoy most is how they're able to keep the authenticity of the voices , for example the Russian commander actually sounds Russian when speaking in Japanese, it's not an easy thing to do and you need talented ...

    in the middle of a mecha show
    i like this show as i feel it animation is getting better and better the story itself has some holes in it but it mecha wartime feeling is all their and done in an extremely enjoyable method to watch. the show is somewhat confusing and could have been polished a bit more. i enjoy this wartime mecha show but would like to see it a bit more cleaned up.
