The anime adapts the Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse novel, which is itself a spinoff of the 2006 visual novel software Muv-Luv Alternative from the adult game company Age. The novel has been running in Tech Gian magazine since 2007, and it already inspired a manga adaptation by Takashi Ishigaki in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in 2009.

As a side story to Muv-Luv Alternative, Total Eclipse follows the test pilots and mechanics in the United Nations Forces' Tactical Surface Fighter Testing Unit in Alaska. Japanese-American Yūya Bridges is the Argos Test Team's main pilot for "XFJ Project," the initiative that is developing the newest Tactical Surface Fighter. Yui Takamura is the head of development for the project from the Japanese Empire's side.
