Dumping latest Gate chapter. Because I want to.
Since the last chapter was a short one, we're kind of thrown into this one.
Itami no. Didn't you learn anything from the last time? You can't keep teaching Dark Elfs to use modern weapons. It never ends well.
>Congratulations on beating the Minotaur
>You get, a Loli.
Huh, I wonder what happened.
Rere probably remembering when Itami "feed" her.
Oh so all this is happening during the coup. That makes more sense.
And that's all for this chapter folks. Next chapter should be on the 30th.
Also when does the anime start back up? Was thinking of dumping the previous chapters before then as a recap.
>Congratulations on beating the Minotaur
>You get, a Loli.
this is why all the minotaurs are all extinct. Too many good bros out there!
oh god......well that would be once way of escaping
Does this mean that Rory ISN'T the shittiest character in GATE?
It's a shame she will only get maybe one episode in the anime.
>1 Gold, 34 silver
>1 x Rory
>1 x Leather Belt
Oh nice a gate thread
So I finished the first season and read the manga from the beginning and without a doubt the parts taken out of the anime adaptation take a lot out of the story
Heres another recommendation to read the manga (from the beginning) its definitely worth it.
yea, sucks the military chicks are no longer with him though, I hope they meet up again
And now we're at the point where he started reading the journal, yes? Boy that took a while
Good shit fampai just saw the raws for this yesterday, this was a pleasant surprise
What parts were taken out?
Also, holy shit compared to the manga the anime character designs are hot shit. Did A-1 just want to make another SAO, but with Japanese military propaganda added in?
I think his faces are very cute, he doesn't have a lot of works under his belt last time I checked though
the gore and nudity for one, they set a very different tone compared to the anime
1. sleeping with a girl in the same room 3 times is by tradition meant to mean you're married in their world. He also "kissed her"
mouth to mouth force fed her a pill.
2. See included pic
3. During the Dragon Hunt arc Rory bit him to make a contract to bind their souls together. When he dies his soul become the property of Rory to do with as she wishes. As an upside any damage he takes gets transferred to Rory where by her immortality heals the wounds.
Well that all sounds fairly stupid, but this IS an LN at heart so I can't exactly get mad at it for shit like this. At this point, it's par for the course for light novels
Even fucking Maou-sama added a kid that needed to be raised
>Anime starts back up next Friday I believe. Don't hold me to that though.
Take responsibility /a/non.
Don't forget his brown elf slavegirl (voluntary).
I think it's during the Gate closure arc.
The gate suddenly closes and separates the two worlds again. Things get pretty desperate. Tuka and the others hear of a rumor that there are survivors of her tribe. Thinking that her real father may be among them Tuka and the others go off to look for them. They do find them, but her father's dead, but she finds her new born little sister. She and Itami "adopt" her and they return to Alnus Base. It's also revealed that since she's a rare fairy type elf, Tuka has the power to reopen the gate. To which she unlocks her magical power and restores the gate.
Or something like that. It's been a while since i read the LN.
trying to reconnect with his world
Literally why would anyone want this shithole world instead of fantasy harem antics forever?
>What about PIna Colada?
She wants a political marriage with him, to strengthen her claim to the throne. But by the time it makes sense for her to want this, Itami no longer has any reason to agree to the deal.
I'm surprised at how frustrated I get when reading the LN and every second or third chapter there is a mention of how they aren't allowed to do things because of the political power the pacifists wield.
I'm starting to suspect the real motive of the author is to ridicule pacifism and those who support it rather than push a nationalist agenda.
100 years too young for Itami.
>I'm starting to suspect the real motive of the author is to ridicule pacifism and those who support it rather than push a nationalist agenda.
There's no conflict between promoting aggressive nationalism and ridiculing pacifism.
Pacifists may be the most vocal opponents of the nationalist pro-military party. Japan is weird.
I'll do it for him
Personally i prefer the manga art to all else
The order goes like this from top to bottom. The novel version and the light novel versions are the exact same in content when it comes to the story.
We should take the Light Novel out because they are too damn perfect, Yao is just perfect and it's like wanting a pasta contest from 4 countries, Italy included. They are still the best of them,
Novel isn't that good but it is the one who started this so it's ok.
Manga is probably the best one in some aspects, Yao there looks badass.
Anime is mostly Ok with some excellent exceptions, and Yao blue lips make me feel a little heat.
>should I read the manga or just wait for the second season?
Why didn't she just use her super strength to rip and tear Minotaur's guts?
Sauron is a minor god, was likely around before existence existed and his master was one of the ones that sung it into being.
He was kicking around as Morgoth's lieutenant when dragons that dwarfed mountain ranges and wars that rearranged continents were a thing.
Rory has nothing on that.
>Also when does the anime start back up? Was thinking of dumping the previous chapters before then as a recap.

Keep up the good work.
The LN art is more...realistic? I don't know. I just prefer it to the idolm@ster look.
I would buy one off Supacat if they sold them to civilians.
That feeling I'll never take Hamilton for a drive. ;_;
This is the only one I have oddly. Someone needs to make a bigger comparison.
Yeah they're cute, but not "Ugu we need to boost sales" cute.
I prefer the manga since the content is about adult themes and making some of them cute looking would make it difficult to be immersive. LN would be close to that ideal too. The novel looks poorly proportionate, especially the eyes. Finally, let's face it: the anime was made that way to garner to a broad audience.
>making some of them cute looking would make it difficult to be immersive.
Are you implying that you don't want to immerse your cock in moe Kuri?
>you will never travel a new fantasy world on a jeep with your diverse harem of elves, witches and demigod
A military otaku's dream, why make us suffer
>make her look like a highschool girl in military uniform
W-Why'd you have to go and remind me, anon. I had just gotten over how badly the anime butchered so many of the designs.
I think the light novel artwork and designs are just generally more solid than any of the others.
Manga Kuri is my favorite, but I've started to warm up to LN Kuri since reading them.
>implying there is a significant distinction between enlisted troops and highschool students in uniforms
Majority of complaints against the anime designs was because we were expecting a midway between moe and realistic; in other words, the LN designs were ideal. However what came as a result was a overly simplification that made them look a lot younger and shojo appealing that was uncalled for. You can argue that it was to balance the budget by saving money for the animation production but a hit series like this would've made up for this and garnered better results if they pushed it a bit further. It's just proof that their mentality into this was to keep it as low risk as possible and the result is a profitable series that didn't reach it's full potential, hence all the bitching that came into these threads when the anime designs leaked and first few episodes in.
>implying there is a significant distinction between enlisted troops and highschool students in uniforms
>implying that kuri is a highschool student
Don't start that shit. I'll fucking end you.
Well, wasn't expecting her to have been eaten so this is a surprise but kind of makes you wonder how she got eaten especially considering she was apparently stripped of her clothes beforehand........
She's able to heal from just about any kind of injury. She probably did get chewed up but at least one of her arms was still attached to her body. So all she had to do was find and reconnect the other parts of her body back together.
Either that or she was so small the Minotaur could easily just swallow her whole. Also removing her clothes was a good idea. You wouldn't pork if it was wearing a turtle neck would you? You'd end up with some bad digestive problems.
can't find one, so how about a Turkey in a turtleneck. It follows the same example.
The manga art looks the worst in my opinion.
Novel has an endearing style.
LN style is more generic.
The anime one has "moefied" the LN a bit more, but I still think it looks fine.
But the manga art is very derpy and badly drawn.
>Lelei knows how to drive now what
All the girls were given driving lessons before they set off. Yes, even Rory. Can't let Itami be stuck in the middle of nowhere if he gets injured and can't drive.
reminder that he becomes a dragon knight after getting marooned in gate world.
fighting off xenomorphs with your fantasy harems never.
he can ride/control the dragon. but he later revokes the job because he thinks its too much work and he just want no trabble.
I want a harem of knights.
>daughter won't shut the fuck up about wanting to be a knight
>humor her by creating a joke of an order and put a bunch of other bored noble girls to serve her
>10 years later
>they openly invite the Green Men who have giant metal cocks into the kingdom
that's how feminism gets ya
>Does he control the dragons or is that just a title?
It seems he doesn't like the flying. He is fine with being in a plane but riding on a dragon with limited safety devices is a little too much for him.
>>they openly invite the Green Men who have giant metal cocks into the kingdom
Actually, the emperor secretly wanted Pina to take the throne but wanted her to earn that right by herself. If she can't beat her two brothers then she doesn't deserve it. He considers his two sons to be far too dumb.
>Goddamn dark elves, this is why people just relegate you to rape materials
Everyone who has ever gave her the dick in the last century, have died. There is a reason the village wanted her to leave, she is not useful even as a cum dump.
I want to date Tuka.
Wouldn't even abuse her, swear on it.
Leilei and chinese prime minister is leading the popularity poll.
Manga Kuribayashi >>>> Anime Kuribayashi
Compared to the LN art, agreed, but given they probably had a lot more time to work on each piece that should be expected. My only issue with the manga art is that some of the characters look like they got punched in the nose. Still better than the novel designs, either way.
I was marathon rereading this tonight and like, can Itami just stick his dick in someone already?
It's just getting to levels where not boning someone makes him seem pathetic. Tuka was sleeping with him naked during the fake-father thing. Even Yanagida said Itama could fuck Delilah or Dora on the hush hush and they'd probably be cool with it.
Pina also wants him so badly it sucks that she can't be part of the harem brigade.
>I was marathon rereading this tonight and like, can Itami just stick his dick in someone already?
Itami is a divorcee. He knows what it feels like to stick his dick in someone and is also aware of the responsibilities. At this point he has NOT made the decision to make the Gate world his home, so it would be irresponsible to fuck girls he hasn't decided to keep.
Either way, only one way he's ending up to in the end
>He appears to be correct about this.
Consider how little info he has to work with, I like the fact that the Emperor ended up being a pragmatic man who knows when to cut his losses. He is not a nice man by any stretch, but he is competent enough to be believable as a ruler who kept his nation together this long.
literally who approved thus I'm about to crush his testicles
>Either way, only one way he's ending up to in the end
He doesn't know that yet.
The novels has his squad telling him he needs to stay in the GATE world, because his harem needs him and the other guys couldn't allow him to run back to Japan without them.
>People in the Gate world are mature non-recluse enough to realize sex isn't a forever lasting commitment, why can't Itami?
There is also the issue that
Itami is ambiguous about his feelings for his exwife.
Did he even have sex with his wife? If the author told us their marriage was platonic I wouldn't even be surprised.
I can totally see Itami doing the dense-kun "you should do that with someone you love!!!" spiel.
>He's knows that she has his soul though doesn't he?
He didn't know what she really meant. I mean, even in the Minotaur arc Itami is uncertain about Rory's immortality. He really has trouble accepting how Gate Gods and Demigods work and thus, doesn't know the ramifications.
I don't think the anime is pushing aggressive nationalism. That's just nonsense from people who think Japan should still be apologizing for WWII.
I think the political stance of the anime is that Japan should be a fully functioning member of the international community, i.e. have a full-scale military and be able to participate in peacekeeping missions and combat operations to assist allies as needed. Japanese pacifism is naive. It sounds nice, but the only reason it's worked so well is that they're under the US nuclear umbrella. But there's no guarantee the US will always have the political will or resources to defend Japan.
>Did he even have sex with his wife?
No one believes that, anon. Not even Otaku. They were married, thus they fucked. Sexless marriages are reserved for extremely unusual circumstances, but in Itami's case his marriage was borderline mundane.
Top Dense. For a fantasy otaku he's not too smart art putting 2 and 2 together.
They took out a ton, especially in the last few episodes where for some reason, they tried not to cover anything that was already covered by the manga. Which was a retarded decision.
It's been awhile, so I can't remember the specifics, but one thing that stuck out to me was where in the anime, Pina realized that all they needed was to steal some guns to fight on equal ground. In the manga, Leilei could see what Pina was thinking, so she pointed out that even if the Empire could get "light" weapons, the JSDF (cue conveniently passing tanks) still had "heavy" weapons.
It's a small thing, but it covers up a pretty major plot hole. This scene wasn't even as bad as the missing scenes in the following episodes.
>Top Dense. For a fantasy otaku he's not too smart art putting 2 and 2 together.
He doesn't know which fantasy rule the Gate world is operating from. Let's face it, there is just too many.
>Pina realized that all they needed was to steal some guns to fight on equal ground.
Pina basically got sanitised in the anime. She was turned into someone pure and innocent, when in the original she is just working for her nation's best interests. I think the anime is deliberately making Pina more feminine, but went too far.
Enjoy your Christmas cake, hopefully dark elves are pure until marriage.
>I'm not saying I believe that, just I wouldn't be surprised if the author pulled gay purity shit like that.
You don't pull that. "Marriage" is a code that has meaning in Japan. Since explicit sexual portrayal is restricted it is normal that codes are used instead.
>a dark elf getting ntr
>same dark elf has his fiance dying before their wedding
>third man also died
Man Japan really like to make the dark elves, aka the best elves, have a shit life.
I take responsability.
>villains get the most pussy
>sex is evil
>you have sex = you are not good
>you have sex with multiple women = you are satan, enjoy hell
>you have sex with multiple women at the same time = you are Zorzal, enjoy being a puppet to your sex slave
Why didn't they give the furries cellphones yet?
This artist has clearly never dragged even one woman across the floor by her neck.
Certainly this artist has never dragged a woman up a flight of stairs.
I don't mind if an ogre or dragon did such a thing, because they're supposed to be absurdly strong, but for a mere mortal man to be dragging around over 500 pounds of pussy and ass... it strains my suspension of disbelief.
>This artist has clearly never dragged even one woman across the floor by her neck.
>Certainly this artist has never dragged a woman up a flight of stairs.
Is this an attempt at getting an epic reaction image train going?
>Why didn't they give the furries cellphones yet?
They haven't got satellites, you fool. They have military radios but these things have range limits.
They have internet but only wifi in the area of the base. So once you left the base contact becomes difficult.
>you didn't factor in the weight of all his beast girls' filthy cum trodden fur
I speculated that the group is over 500 lbs. You're right, though, it may be significantly over.
>Because we expect realism and accuracy from an anime about a portal mysteriously appearing that leads to a fantasy world pulled directly from an RPG.
Yes, that's exactly correct.
how is Leilei so
also how did he get permission to take his 4 girlfriends outside of the Gate to visit his mom?
I don't think local security is good enough for them to set up cell towers around the countryside, even between oft-traveled routes like between Alnus and that town where they had the Flight of the Valkyries heli assault, can't remember the name.
He's losing them before he even gets them, Itami is just another betaboy in a middle-aged man's skin.
>Itami refuses to fuck isn't a camp-wide meme yet
give it time
Why would alien species be illegal?
Lelei would be illegal in most prefectures due to age, not due to species or whatever.
Yeah, sex happens in spite of the law an awful lot.
Yeah, if they're allowed to have jobs as military police, they're probably not classified as animals.
But they wouldn't legally be animals by default. Or at least the courts wouldn't uphold them as animals which is basically the same thing. Plus, there's no way politicians want to get into a potentially career-ending debacle over this shit.
You got arrested by a police dog?
That's just sad, son.
Seriously this. It would take one picture of catgirls or bunnygirls looking sad and the politician's career would be over.
Other human races aren't literally fantasy material come to life.
>tomita gets that sweet Boze pussy
This nigga's got his priorities checked
Gate is pretty good but it has moments where every thing goes to shit, and I'm left wondering.... why? As readers, we don't need an elaborate scheme, and high drama to explain why a character does what they do. All we need is their motivation.
It's these moments that lead up to a character going full retard, that I start to doubt the writer. Why bring in so much fluff into the narrative if it isn't going to alter the outcome, why have characters do dumb shit if they know its dumb, why ignore the repercussions of actions like its nothing after chapters of telling us how much if a big deal it is, why so much japanese dick sucking, why don't the military adhere to basic military protocols?
Gate is the series where you enjoy it, then it gets bad, but then it gets good, only to get bad again. It's a repeating cycle of good story telling and world building followed by bad forced elaborate outcomes to specifically create situations the cast must over come.
>Who and what do you mean?
Going to the party of an enemy nation that you just bombed and acting all chill. Attempting to assassinate military officials then being forgiven for it. Congratulating the people that beat up your son and next to be king. Ignoring a dragon, only to send reinforcement at the last minute, making all the death that happened meaningless.
Gate as a series is full of these. I believe it is due to the bad writing, but conflict should flow better. It shouldn't be so cut and dry then ignored, especially if an army is involved.
I'll drop the subject because no amount of bitching will change it, but I FEEL like it could better all around.
Make sense though, true Dragons are tough enough that you need a combined arms regiment to bring them down.
If you can ride them, you can stay out of danger and rek most opposition.
Hey fuck you, Yanagida is a cool cat.
>tfw no bunnyfu
I hope they all get undetectable Gate-specific retroviral STDs and die and Itami is the only one left alive because he refused to fuck.
I would just assume they follow the same age restrictions. Although at the moment they're probably banned for sleeping with other species because they're still testing for STDs.
would be cool.
I wish someone would scan the new volume comics at the end already.
seriously. volume 8 comics shows Rori hammer throwing the beast guys around.
Could someone help me out with a decent/good quality version of the manga from Ch. 43/44 onwards, or are there none?
No matter where I look, mangafox, batoto, mmo - I can't find a version which isn't heavily zoomed in or where I have to zoom in myself to be able to read or look at it properly.
Everything was fine until ch.42 and since I'm not really an active manga reader myself, I feel a bit lost right now.
I can't wait for the coup to go south and shit hitting the fan.
Also JSDF paratroopers jumping on the Capital.
Oh... so this /ak/ wiki-site is where people look
"Gate Vol 7
Cleaning:15/214 (will take a long time to clean those noise) "
So I guess it'll take a while then, thanks anyway!
Did you even read the manga? It happens all the time. PX, Humvee or JSDF often appear like that. It's like, as an example, "ze" instead of "the" so you can "read" ze Akzent.
