    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 ...

    Pretty good drama mecha.
    I liked this show. It's not everybody's cup of tea, but it's definitely NOT a harem show as others has suggested. The action scenes are good and the story is interesting. The show did slow down from the first two episodes, but remained interesting enough for me to continue watching it.

    Unexpectedly bad....
    First two episodes led me to think that i was about to discover one of those beautiful jewels. I thought i had found another one of those great hidden animes. But no.

    I recommend anyone to watch the first two episodes, they are AWESOME, but I dare you to go all the way to episode 8. You will be just waiting for something to happen, and then you realize that nothing happens, and that it is ...

    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.

    Good Begining, but a Terrible Follow Up
    I'll admit that this anime has great animation, music, sound FX, and pretty much every other technical detail is top knotch, but I have many issues with the narative itself. First of all, for a story about alien monsters invading the world there is a suprising lack of ALIEN MONSTERS (known here as BETA). Most episodes don't have a single BETA in it at all!!! In fact, when they show up they are ...

    Just not what I was expecting of the title.....
    Generally disappointed. Was expecting more.....

    Personally left after episode 3.
    Maybe supposed to be a different story, but was hoping for something other then this.
    ------------------------------------

    Don't wanna say more.... Just disappointed.........

    Total Eclipse of the Heart
    I decided to watch this at the suggestion of a fan of the series who gave it a high recommendation.

    I'm very glad I did. The anime over all turns out to be really good, especially if you can make it past the, first few episodes.

    It starts out a little rough. Everyone's getting slaughtered, our main character is going all emo, making cliche mistakes.

    And don't get me wrong, the anime ...

    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 ...

    Great Story and Action Scene's
    And I do not understand where people are getting a Harem out of this. This show presents a great story, and it goes in depth with the characters background to show the audience why the characters are they way they are. If you like stories about sinister governments, mecha sci-fi weapons, human experimentation, alien invasion then you found one that encompasses it all. yes there is romance in it, ...
