    This is a pathetic attempt.
    This is an anime made by a masterpiece of a Visual Novel. And it soils the ''Muv-luv Alternative'' name in every way possible. IT IS AS INCONSISTENT AS A KID RIDING A UNICYCLE WITH HIS FACE (Lets now calm down and continue on.), failed at following the source material (Trying to follow it, and failing, is different from not following it at all.), badly written characters, and it wasn't generally ...

    Cryska Barchenowa is Awesome!
    I am not an excellent reviewer so I'll name the most noteworthy things about this anime. First off, this is series is not for everyone, that being said I've followed this anime since it began, at first I was skeptical but grew to love it.

    The first two episodes were really amazing, they bring us to this world where it's being invaded by aliens and show us the tragedies of War. Soon after that ...

    Awesome need season 2!
    This anime was by far my favorite and the love story between Cryska and Yui for Yuuya was awesome. Definitely put a lot more then just brutal fighting into the plot. I enjoyed the beta and the creepy look they had which also put another twist into the plot how the humans had to survive creating these new weapons to fight them off. I could go on about this anime for days haha but it definitely has ...

    Left with a craving.
    Total Eclipse is a well writen and highly well drawn. Each episode developes the characters more and more and at the end of this season I'm left with an anxious anticipation for season two....*.* x,O

    Nice Anime, but quality tapers off a bit..
    Great anime from the get go. Has less of a cookie cutter template then some of the other shonen stuff that has been churned out in recent years.

    Oh sure its got aliens, mechs, and a gruff lad with a torrid past as the main protagonist.. but tbh its a lot of good fun that keeps you on the edge of your seat. They even do a POV switch from another "main" character.

    What I don't like are the ...

    Aimed at young people who don't think about plot
    I will admit, the first few episodes were grimy and excellent, but the plot takes a turn for the worst...

    Basic plot synopsis is pretty bad, events that occur don't really make sense from a logical point of view. Therefore, the only people to enjoy this anime are people young/naive enough to buy into it. The ecchi is a bit over the top and the fight scenes aren't particularly done well. ...

    ~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 ...

  • 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 ...
