  • Great Follow-up to Muv-Luv Alternative
    This story is not a standalone. Most people I can see don't understand that this universe is 9 years old.
    Muv-Luv is an excellent VN, and although my Japanese isn't to the point of reading light novels yet, I'm sure Total Eclipse was great as one seeing its story.

    I personally believe this might be too similar to Muv-Luv to start with, having a foreigner that feels lost to the customs of the ...

    Sad Robotech Wannabe
    Pros: Great potential in story, mecha, fan-service, romance, aliens...

    Cons: Doesn't deliver on any of them. Every aspect of this falls way short. A real waste of time. Way better off with Macross Frontier or almost any of the other Robotech/Macross series.

    First off, let me just say that I really wanted to like this anime. It has all the right ingredients for a hit anime - promising plot, ...

  • Japanese Mecha Game of Thrones
    A very good watch I liked many characters from the start and they pull you in with emotional issues. just... don't get attached to anyone. Anyone who really enjoyed the series should read the visual novel, it's adult rated and filled with gore so be warned.

    Is it still a Muv-Luv or not?
    Well, this is REALLY good if you are a fan of Muv-Luv or been waiting for it since 7-8 years ago like me.

    But hey, I really like this one so much as other people, I mean this recommended to some ppl.

    what some are looking for
    I know most will disagree with my rating, but i personally feel the show deserved it.

    Now I have to say that this show is what some people are looking for. Not everybody... just some. If you are not looking for romance with a bit of action then this is not for you. The action is there in the beginning and the end and is little in the middle. its more of a romance than any other genre. Also the ...

  • Good, but needs more
    Total Eclipse is a fun Mech series with a reasonably solid story, interesting characters, good art and is well written. I felt the first couple of episodes were a little shaky as it tried to set the scene, but then it settled in well and was very enjoyable. I only have two complaints about this series - 1) the 2 episodes thrown in for no purpose other than so they can get their quota of fan ...

  • Not exactly what I expected
    Total Eclipse did have a Blue Gender feel to it. I thought it started off strong but ended fairly weak. Total Eclipse did most things ok but nothing great. It really focused on the relationship building among the team with a slight bit of romance and mecha mixed in. The show had what seemed to be major and more interesting themes but didn't really address them ( ie the BETA and the deal with ...

    Views or Ratings, It's Your Choice
    [Message me your arguement to my review and we'll discuss it I'm sure.]

    Though this anime has not had a "long" series like the most popular anime such as Naruto, Bleach, Gintama, etc. It has and had the qualities of an anime that viewers will love.

    The creators used the typical Mecha storyline, Earth is invaded by aliens and humans rise to the occasion. I get that it isn't what some may ...

  • A Very Ambiguous Ending
    There's a lot that could be said about "Total Eclipse", both negative and positive. It starts out as a traditional mecha anime: giant robots fighting off a horde of alien invaders called "BETA". As the story progresses, the focus is taken away from the battle against the BETA; eventually becoming more of a romance than anything. If there's a chance that you're coming into this anime hoping for an ...

    ~muu-luu alternative~
    3 separate story lines not well integrated. The 3rd & finally plot was extraneous and made little sense. The 2nd was okay but did not flow well from the 1st plot. Character development carried this series, the women especially. This had the potential to be totally awesome if the story line had been carried by the plot / style of the first 2 episodes.
    After a 2nd viewing, I found this ...
