In anticipation of the Gate anime second season airing on the 9th, I'm going to be dumping the manga chapters leading up to everything covered so far. Because I want to .
Starting with the first volume.
Make me wonder. Did they really just pile everyone up like that to just plant the flag? I guess that's one way to do it.
Although it's kind of glossed over in the manga and the anime, the whole battle here takes place over a couple of weeks. At least two.
I believe mister nose is supposed to be a mage. Though it's not really important to anything.
Ok, I know what the Emperor is doing here, but these guys just lost an army of 100k+. And nobody is doing to bother and find out why? Can't the Senate just deny the Emperor if there's enough votes or something?
Should I even bother continuing? Seems dead in here.
I think this American President knows too much about Japanese history.
Eh, thanks anyway. It wasn't much, but it was interesting to see how the manga was infinitely better than the anime SERIOUSLY A-1 FUCK YOU THE CHARACTERS AREN'T IN SWORD ART FUCKING ONLINE
Why the hell did the anime decide to use that silly CGI dragon?
So, they find an elf, and they first thing they do is strip it naked and kidnapped it. I'll never understand what japan has against elfs.
Meanwhile, something they glossed over in the anime is happening.
This part bugged me in the anime. Rori just shows up with very little reason and kills all these dudes. Made her look like she was just some crazy girl.
It's never actually explained why she's just chilling out in the middle of the road here. I suppose it's just coincidence that the refugees just happen upon her, but I'unno.
Tighten your damn chinstraps. They shouldn't be dangling like that.
Yeah see. She's just chilling here for no real reason. I get the feeling she was waiting for them.
Welp, on page 10 again. Maybe I should have started after work hours. If the thread kills, I'll restart later where it ends.
It's almost looks like a dragon doesn't it? As opposed to that chubby looking thing in the anime.
A fat dragon doesn't make sense in the setting either; it was supposed to have been hibernating for years; so it should have lost body mass over time.
If anything, it should have been lean and extremely mean, to help explain why it's been aggressively hunting
besides being woken up early to mate and hunt to feed offspring.
I wonder if there's anything rifle sized that could shoot through it's armor. Aside from RPGs.
It's going to be a horrific nightmare of a mess once we get to blue skinned wyvern girl and the two little dragons.
They already massacred all the other races.
Probably one of those older and experimental or limited-production anti-tank rifles?
Would be heavy as hell though.
Hmm, I'm surprised the dragon didn't bleed out. But then again, it is a dragon.
Oh shit I forgot about the other two dragons and the dragon girl. They're going to butcher her.
And yeah, maybe one of those rifles would be good. Although they're a bit unwieldy.
What the hell character is that? I don't recognize it.
>one was a foreign beauty
>the other was a cute girl
>neither of these will be in the anime
I can't help but wonder if there was another translation for The Rod of Steel.
What the hell is your job Yanagida? Never figured that out.
Why did they turn Yanagida into a pretty boy? Literally turned him into a character from Free.
Although it's only vaguely mentioned, later in the story someone from the Gate world finds one of Itami's cosplay fashion magazines lying around. And all the tailors start using it as references for new designs when the high ladies want new dresses. It's some holy book to them.
Assuming that part of the wound was cauterized in the explosion, and the usual expected healing level of a dragon of that size, it's not likely to bleed out.
What's more amazing though is that it wasn't disoriented by the explosion, and thus could still fly away.
Intelligence with some liasion/communications, I'm guessing.
On one end, he's trying to get Itami to use his influence to gain advantages for Japan, like more land for resources.
On the other, he's handling reporting and managing the shit that results from Itami's actions, including things like letting Pina and Bozes visit the other side of the GATE, and giving Itami a stipend to use on their guests.
>Boss had a hard life
Dude really has his hand in a lot of things.
Yeah pretty much. But at least we can have fun complaining about it and watching elfs kill themselves.
Nah, when someone else but me posts it bumps the thread, it's just that /a/ goes fast and everyone is quiet here.
>We will never get to the revolution and civil war resulting from Tyuule's actions.
>We will never get Japan countering mind-control with drones.
>We will never get Itami's misadventures while the GATE is
Then again, I'm not sure I'd want another season with the massacred designs. God forbid they massacre the mermaids and centaurs too.
wouldn't this kind of be considered a war crime? This is so one sided it's stupid.
I know but my phone is shitty when it comes to pictures
I doubt they'll skip it, but I'll be surprised if they actually call them prostitutes. And we already know the designs will be butchered to hell and back.
The Dragons are all very tough; it's safe to say that nothing short of a direct hit from an antitank missile will hurt them. Later on, when the JSDF intercepts the two younger Dragons, the 20mm from their M61A1 Vulcans can only wind them, and their hides are resistant to fragmentation from the 155mm arty rounds. Only the TOW missiles can hurt them, and you still need to hit them in the right place.
>Robocop on the ballista
That ain't gonna fly. The dragon girls are mine.
Oh yeah, I forgot there's supposed to be hobbits in this world.
And that's all for volume 1. I'll stop here for today and continue tomorrow. Also might split tomorrow's too. That took a long ass time.
I hope all 8 of you enjoyed this.
At least you can later befriend them, or if you were a little less moral, use their own customs against them.
Heck, Pina was expecting herself and other females to be raped and used as a cumdumpster while the men would be taken away to be used in hard labor.
Fuck you, you little shit. She's mine and mine alone. Do you think you're really worthy of her? A pathetic little uninteresting bitch like you. Yeah, nah. Fuck off, she's mine. MINE! I'LL FIGHT YOU RIGHT FUCKING NOW I SWEAR IT
Go fuckyourself. You can have the cum dumpster rabbit girl faglord
Cum dumpsters seem to be more of your thing you cum guzzling faggot. You go and have your fun with the rabbit, me and MY waifu Rory will be happy at home cuddling.
too furry for me, manga has the better design
I'll take the anime Myuute out of sympathy
Better late than never.
So far, I can definitely see a charm in the manga's art that people might find missing in the (admittedly more sterile) anime. Especially its panel layouts, though I did think the split-screen sequences in the anime were neat. I hope they keep that up.
That bird girl seems out of place.
I feel like a chick fighting among bandits like these wouldn't work out too well. What's stopping them from turning on her once they go into their rape frenzy?
U wot? The manga is way furrier on average, besides, it's hard to recreate the not-that-furry skin look when you have to colour digitally, and relatively flat. Cut them some slack.
She's a magician (no need to get into the frontlines) and probably a friend who protects them with wind magic. Either they don't see her as a rape target, or it's consensual with them.
She's one of the few magic users, probably along with the few other girls among the former military-turned-bandit group (all of those girls only had battle exhaustion; none of them had slave collars or the like).
She has legitimate value; she's able to turn away enemy arrows and manipulate the wind to make her side's own arrows fly further and truer. Legitimately valuable if planning to siege and raid larger towns and cities.
Either one of them show up yet?
The one in pink did show up in the manga
This is the most ruined character design in the anime imo. In the manga, shes portrayed as this strong healthy female warrior, how they're gonna make her slender figure in the anime into a proper bunny warrior is beyond me.
Not really, considering that is her bunny warrior standard dress and warpaint.
Now if it was some other female character other than a bunny girl attempting to replicate the dress and paint, more likely. Just like all the racist comments when it comes to inaccurate portrayals of native americans.
On the other side of the GATE. Just find a family of domestic catpeople and pick one of their children.
If none are to your liking, show the father the GATE equivalent of pre-2016 Playboy magazine. He will soon go forth and multiply with his wife.
Spoken like a true cummguzzling cucklord.Go fuck your second hand whore rabbit along with your slut harpy you faggot.I'll sit back and watch as Rory cucks you with me cockgobbler.
>taking that long to respond
Too busy fucking your used up rabbit slut, fuccboi? I hope you can hear me and Rory laughing at how pathetic you look.

Demigods are require to walk the Earth for the entire duration of their 1000 year apprenticeship. This means they are not allowed to just live in a temple and have their needs taken care of. They have to travel and be a public figure and representative of their god. And since gods rarely answer prayers the demigods end up being the ones you might ask for help. Rory is around the area because of the recent battles
