Whereas Alternative arcs felt like connected to each other, it's not much the case with Total Eclipse, where it really felt like each arcs are published in a magazine before getting serialized. I think Kouki does need a beta reader to see how smooth the transitions are, no pun intended.

well Harem antics are needed in alternative to lighten up the mood. If you stay lonely and sad a certain hot headed storm vanguard would punch you. being sad is not needed in front line and specially in special task force.

But here in Total eclipse that's not the case at all!!! though I'm beginning to question. When TE is starting I heard its adapted from a novel then their is a manga where the novel stops though I'm not much informed other than that. Are they still adapting the novels? because next episode is a filler episode again. It just felt that they are stretching it far too much before the battle with the infinities. I even start thinking the studio had already given up on it. Specially in some scenes where the animation is totally off. Its like they aren't even giving an effort on it.

I've lost complete respect for this anime. It went from serious - mature animations to cartoony Infinite Stratoes facial expressions. The inconsistencies are so vast it seems almost schizophrenic.

Not only that, they'd failed to give critical details from the novel. I only see this anime as a means to "advertise" for the game that is coming up which is the Ending, but COME ON! Who would care if they don't even understand the story that leads up to the game? [mod edit: removed reference to events not shown] Who would be willing to pay for that game in order to understand whatever vague events this anime fails to mention.

Anyways, much disappointed. Sword Arts is the only thing I'm following up and it also has that Novel - to inconsistant adaptation that Total Eclipse as. One must read the novel in order to fully understand what the heck is going on.


I would watch Gundam Wing and other old animes where each episode has something happening where it FEELS like an adventure. I dont see that in Total Eclipse. Episode 3 seems to be the exact same as episode throughout to the current one. I don't see an adventure. >.<

I think it's still wrong to generalized. Just because they're don't have feelings for the MC makes them lesbians. That's stupid for God's sake.

Yes, I know sex sells. But pointless sex or rather fan service is a no, no... unless the anime is purely for fan service and pointless sex. The rage proves it.

For those Who complain about inconsistent animation level:

Give it a rest. Satelight Proved that they can produce a quality consistent work with Moe Pirates. The results we get, are to the director pissing away the budget in Yui's prologue.

You know, this was really more of OVA or Special Material. Other wise, it was really, one of the dumbest, stupidest and least well thought out episode plot-wise, though the humor is passable. Especially Orson....

Notice how I'm only going after the people attacking animation level. I woulda preferred more Blue Flag. Or sword teaching that leads to sparring that leads to Yuuya and the person in his heart becoming one...

And Yui is shocked as Yuuya and Niigata pwn her again.

... Okay, Top Gun and Top Jell is also fine

The budged must have ben extremely low if the first 2 episodes are really responsible for the animationquality of the rest of the show.
Personally, I never cared about the animation in the first place, but what is destroying this anime for me is how bad the lest 2-3 episodes are regarding the characters, the story and the whole pointless Harem aspect. I had really high hopes for this show, maby too much.

There are about 110 minutes in the 5 episodes left (20, 21, 22, 23, 24). That's the same as a normal-length movie. There is plenty they can do to save this.

4 more episode. Next episode is not really an episode if the next episode preview is right. Its like they are dragging on before the actual battle with infinities. Though next episode is going to show parts where weren't shown before or more information on argos team if I remember it right.

Oh crap I think you are right. It is a recap. Well there are still 90 or so minutes anyway.

if yuuya really don't realize what happen then i can assume that yuuya is a Virgin

so yuuya and sharon relationship in the past is not really deep. isn't it ?

I was amused by parts of this episode (like Yui's yuri harem), but in general I'm kind of hoping that it's never referenced by any of the later episodes and can simply be skipped over without causing continuity problems.

Agreed. I would like to get on with the story, like an epic match between Argos and the Infinities.

Which would probably end with Keith vs Ibrahim, old dude versus old due, as they pour out their headaches with dealing with young guns on the battlefield...

Yes, so much this. It is not Satelight's fault that the production committee raised the industry's equivalent of three hundred yen, a candy wrapper, and some scattered pocket lint to create this series. There's only so much they can do with no money.

(This does nothing to excuse the excursions into fanservice harem antics better suited for Extra or Lt. Cui's general stalker antics, but those, again, are the fault of the original writer.)

...clip show next week to save more money, but hopefully they can use that kind of thing to scrape up enough cash to do the Argos/Infinities fight and, hopefully, the culmination of the Yuuya-Leon arc some justice. There's been plenty of good stuff in the Blue Flag arc, and I'd like to see more of that.

While I would have liked for the story to focus more on Blue Flag, this episode had some good moments and gave me some good laughs.

BIG WAVE!!!
