    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 ...

  • One twist too many...
    I think setting with a majority of the episodes toward conflicts between countries may have been its downfall if no additional seasons are made. They should have stuck with the main plot line the way the series began. Overall it wasn't bad.

    I only hope I can drink enough to forget it.
    Poor story, mediocre design and art, horrible CG, terrible stereotypical characters, inconsistent thrown together style, and horrendously erratic tone. And that's just the first three episodes. I've really only seen a couple of animes worse than this, and I've been watching the stuff for 30 years. I mean if this were so bad that it's funny I might recommend it, but it can't even succeed on ...

    A Terrible Bait and Switch
    Even the Japanese otaku fled from this thing, and with good reason. It starts out as though it's going to be a fantastic series with mechs, aliens, drama, action and intense moments. It has the hallmarks of everything that makes an anime great.

    Then it suddenly, without warning, becomes a harem anime, consisting of every shallow cliche in the book. Every female suddenly and inexplicably falls ...

    The anime isn't too consistent on how it comes off.
    Spoiler alert!

    Okay, summary of story first. Humanity is losing the war against aliens invading and tearing a hole in humanity's a**hole (all of Europe, decimated), people are fighting them with mechas because they have overpowered anti-aircraft snipers, and these things brutally eat everything in their path with all sizes of forces, even Godzilla size aliens! It's total madness.
    Now, skip ...

    smooth start with a rocky finish
    The show starts strong but quickly changes. The characters seem to have inconsistent personalities and many of the plot twists felt thought out only half way. It had a great premise for it to run on but never lived up to its potential. There are many issues that are never resolved, which would normally hint towards a second season, but this feels more like poor planning more than anything else.
