    Nothing more than a self-righteous Anti-American diatribe
    First two episodes started out great. Then the show basically became a telling of how Japan wasn't wrong at all for their pre-WWII, racist, supremacist ideology. The main character is "cured" of his American way of thinking, and ultimately overcomes his barbaric, Western self and learns the superior, refined, superior ways of the Japanese.

    Come on, I don't mind a little bit of criticism of the ...

    Slow anime, but a good slow anime
    This anime started for great and got even better, if you the type of person that enjoys character progression then this is the anime for you. it does carry on slow but its good, great animation along with good story telling, when the fight scenes are done they are done amazing but are far and few between, the ending was ok, but the cliff hanger made no sense. would have loved more seasons but it ...

  • Great Mecha Anime Series!
    Well before this became an anime series I happen to read the light novels of Total Eclipse which I really enjoyed so it was a given that I'd like the anime adaptation.

    The show starts off by showing practically Yui Takamura's first real combat experience with the BETA in her TSF. After that you meet a more determined and hardened Yui three years after those events which is determined to ...

  • A little bit of everything in a strange mix
    I first found this one here on crunchy and decided to watch it just for kicks and was pleasantly suprised with it!

    The first 3 episodes follow a young Yui Takamura, who enlists to pilot the TSF in Japan against the BETA,something that does not turn out as she tought it would.
    And then it flashes forward 6 years or so to a adult Yui and a team of multinational test pilots who need to test ...

  • Good ole bait and switch
    The first two episodes are brilliantly done. Absolute masterpiece. They wonderfully set a persistent mood for the entire series: they world is dying!

    But with each arc the story becomes less cohesive, mostly because of bad directing.
    The main character switches to Yuuya on episode 3 and goes away from Yui. It doesn't really make sense nor is it explained by Yui isn't the test pilot with her ...

    Interesting 1st array into the Muv-Luv multiverse
    Before I begin, I watched the entire series before writing this review, and it's my first time in the Muv-Luv universe. Overall, I enjoyed watching this series: enough to research a little about the overall Muv-Luv universe without spoiling myself on the other entries too much.

    Total Eclipse is a side story in the Alternative (3rd) arc of the Muv-Luv trilogy. Although I have yet ...

    I enjoyed this show.
    I liked it. Hope they make some more episodes. Not much with the BETA was resolved and I really want to see what happens with that war. Though it did feel like it switched the show up quite a bit. You think it will be about a gruesome fight for survival but it mostly follows a completely different theme (Ill let you find out for yourself) Needless to say I really would like to see more about the ...

  • Loved it, easily in my top 5 favs
    I personally loved it. Wish it was longer, hate that it ended like that. Overall its a great anime that embodies everything i look for in a anime. Love that it involves the countries that I'm extremely fascinated with. China, Japan, Russia, and though Alaska isn't a country, I'm still fascinated with it. Only thing i really didn't care for was the theme music for the openings and endings. So ...

    Why would you do this to us?
    If you didnt watch yet, just watch the first two episodes and skip the others

    Well this anime was recommended to me since I'm a big fan of Real Mecha shows (Gundam, Macross....etc), at the first episode I thought well its about school girls plotting Mechs to kill Aliens, that is AWESOME!!!

    The second episode the action started and the girls started to die and one of the deaths just made me ...

    Total Eclipse of the lame
    The main character is named Bridges -Hey thats my name! Good -well starting in the 3rd ep, it started with a young girl named Yui-. It has mechs, better. Mechs are used to fight an seemingly unstoppable horde of alien life forms -BETA- Awesome........wait they only fight the BETA in like 5 or 6 eps out of 25, spend the rest of the time testing a proto-type mech or changing Bridges into a better ...
