    I made it a whole 2 episodes...
    I am overwhelmingly forgiving, and positive, toward anime shows. When most people seem to find things to whine about, I am still usually just fine, having a great time. This show, however, is just plain terrible.

    I only made it 2 episodes in. It wasn't the fanservice. It wasn't the CGI. Those are fine, they don't bother me. It was the horrifically bad writing. These girls were the absolute ...

    Not given enough credit
    I'm glad I waited until after I watched the series to read the reviews. This was a good show, yes it is is definitely a Harem but not as bad as it being made out. The invasion and the "creation" of most of the characters takes place during the height of the cold war, Vietnam, themes from the Korean War and World War 2 are integral to the story. There are deep things beyond the surface. Political ...

    Total Eclipse Review 8.2/10
    This anime might be Cliché and has the normal big boobs and Hot girls and giant robots, But This anime is not that bad. Instead of criticizing it so much , watch it, its pretty good and I enjoyed it.
    Whats it about: (I'm gonna put this as simple as possible) Its about the world being taken over by some monster/alien life, humanity is fighting back,Russia, Europe and Asia are taken over already. ...

    Could have been as good as Attack on Titan
    The first few episodes were amazing. The Beta reminded me of the Titans in 'Attack on Titan. Gruesome deaths being hunted and eaten by the Beta. Occasional glimpses of brilliance kept me watching until the end, but the story quickly turns into a typical romance filled with all the usual cliche's. If they would have kept the Beta as the main storyline, it would have been fine. Instead the lead ...

    enjoyable. I wish it continued on from where it ended :/
    Like someone else said its deceptive, like its going to be focused on the aliens and mechs and then turns into a harem anime.

    I say, whats wrong with harem animes? I liked this show. It isnt like they completely abandoned the aliens and mechs. It should've been expected to be more ecchi than mecha when one of the first scenes are skin tight uniforms clinging around girls breasts lol.

    Starts good then falls appart.
    Very disappointing.
    I couldn't bring myself to finish it.
    Started off enjoying it, but after about 6 episodes I actually started to dislike every character and plot device, still, I tried to continue but failed in the end.

    Characters flip flopped from "strong and promise myself not to be emotional" to making puppy eyes and feeling sad and angsty. The main characters go from being semi ...

    Cool start but turns into the worst
    Really good start, it showed how brutal the beta(alien things) can be and showed a lot about some of the characters, and hell it shifted characters really well. But then, every EP was just a god damn drama fest characters get stupid and cry and blubber over the dumbest things. I stopped watching it half way in and looked at the last episode and the ending was dreadful. Do not watch this. (I'm not ...

    Don't forget to mention the war.
    So initially you get a really gloomy feeling when watching this series, just like Ergo Proxy it starts out hopeless and dark.

    Humanity is really in for it, people die all around and the BETA seems extremely overwhelming.

    But a couple of episodes in, it turns into a highschool musical. and the whole feeling you got form the first episodes are gone, seriously i stopped watching halfway thru ...

    What amazing potential... But in the end, disappointing.
    TL;DR - This show really just boils down to a high-school-esque romantic drama that has mecha involved on the side. The large setting is a global war; mankind vs. aliens, with an international group of pilots working together to try and make a breakthrough that can win the war. Occasionally, the anime remembers its own story, and all the heaving bosoms and awkward blushes will stop for a moment ...
