    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Tolerable; a time sink at best
    This is a classic case of an anime promising much but delivering so little. The plot is written with expert technique in the mechanisms used, but is covers the wrong parts of the story they built. It's as if all creativity fled the writers shortly after establishing the backstory.
    Women become largely useless, incapable of even climbing ladders, as they all fall over themselves chasing after the ...

    Not the same old mecha plot. Fun to watch!
    This anime is great. Doesn't use the same classic Gundam plot with some kid (especially schoolkid) gets into an all power super robot and he's the only one able to drive it.
    If there's one thing that makes this robot anime stand out from the rest is the gore. There is real gore in this and I haven't seen good anime with gore in years.
    The mechs have an excellent design and the fights keep me at ...

    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 ...
