I wish I could not get past all the YAMATO DAMASHI that is in the manga. I mean, the special forces are so strong that there is no real conflict in the 20 chapters I've read so far -- not to mention the "GLORIOUS NIPON WILL USE THE GATE TO BECOME BEST SUPER POWER EVER". Sure modern conventional warfare would vastly outpower medievil style fighting, but you need to keep it interesting.

I mean it depends on the story, really. Of course stories from Japan are usually going to show Japan as very strong. It's just almost ends up really boring.

But that was the only purpose of that scene, to establish the dominance of modern arm forces. Itami could just have shot the prince in order to get the information he needed, instead he let her beat him up.
And let's be honest is it that unfeasible for a military to overpower 2 or 3 men armed with swords/shields and clunky armor using modern combat techniques?

It's retarded, completely retarded. And yes, it is unfeasible for a modern combatant with a knife to take out multiple armored elite royal guards who live and die in bloody melee combat with blades. Especially if said combatant is a small, physically/genetically unimposing woman.

>>122428548
But she doesn't have a knife, she has a rifle with a bayonet, she probably has more range than those guards, is a lot more agile, and if at any time she feels threatened she can just shoot them, which is what she did when they tried to swarm her.

Go read that chapter, you clearly aren't remembering it too well. I don't remember which one it is but i believe it's part of volume 5.
And as i said before, going for melee served a purpose, it wasn't just because.

Modern trained killers focus on guns, the blade is a backup weapon. Medieval trained killers focus on the sword and melee. You give modern trained killers too much credit especially when said killer is a small woman.

A small woman shouldn't be able to beat several elite male soldiers who literally make a living by being good at hand-to-hand combat. That's just how it fucking is. The scene would have been cool if they had just settled at blasting them instead of totally shitting on the suspension of disbelief.

A typical female soldier is not as strong as a typical male soldier. It's entirely unrealistic that she beat on so many men no problem. Bayonets are not magic that kills whoever is on the other end, it's physical combat against multiple people who are physically stronger than her, and she manages to beat them all down no problem, so much so they all needed to charge her at once to have a chance.

It's stupid to think that just because she was small and asian she can't go up against bigger people. The 2nd best fighter in boxing is a small asian punching niggers and burritos bigger than him. Those videos are supposed to imply that his bs logic is refuted by reality itself.

Keep those strawmen coming.

The whole appeal of Gate is that a rag-tag bunch of normal human beings use modern technology to knock evil rulers and fantastical beasts on their asses. When one of these human beings suddenly starts acting like a martial arts expert, it all shatters, and that is the problem.

You don't see me complaining about a goth loli swinging a huge axe and massacring people. That's because she's portrayed as a good fighter type from the beginning.

I'm not accusing you of misogynist crap do you see me do that? I'm saying they exist in reality, it's been foreshadowed in the universe, and it's fucking proven with taking several men in melee. What's more it's fiction too and several fictional works have shown women in this light too.

Liking and being better than average at something doesn't really suddenly being godly at that thing.

Had they only showed a flashback of her actually being some kind of champion at martial arts/stickfighting/whatever, believing the scene would have been much easier.

>I'm not accusing you of misogynist crap
Haha what?

>I'm saying they exist in reality
Who? Strong women? Of course. I'm sure that there are female martial arts people who could beat 5 average men at the same time, but this not that kind of situation. This is a fairly good but small female fighter using a bayonet (knife on a rifle barrel) to poke several fully equipped male royal guards to death, without taking any particular damage. And that's stupid.

She is, and I even agree with you on the point that she should have just shot had this not been a fictional situation.

>>122433963

Oddly enough, shes named after a general who despised banzai charges and fought with his men.
>>
>>122433963
Actually, if she actually has a bunch of CQC qualifications I will back off on that point. However, it still doesn't solve the problem of the guards dying much easier to a lone human woman than you would expect royal guards to do.

>>122433555
>something doesn't really suddenly being godly at that thing.
I don't think you actually read Italica because she's shown to fight back to back with Rory Mercury against a whole crowd of men. Also, Itami remarked that she's a student of the arts.

>believing the scene would have been much easier.
Or maybe if you paid attention better.

>Haha what?
Saying /pol/ shit. I've never been to pol

>And that's stupid.
The trope as a whole is stupid but it works. It's awesome to look at. That's why I don't understand your complaints because this is virtually true for every single action fiction in the world. Male or female.
>>
>>122434088

Oh, I agree. Though, some anons made the point that the guards weren't exactly A+ material that I can see being the case.

The only evidence I saw in that regard was how they didn't instantly form up and charge instead of just rushing. Kind of makes sense, as the only other time she's done this was with a presumably poorly organized group of bandits.

We really are digging too deep into this.

What I meant by "good fighter type" was Rory-tier.

>>122434225
>That's why I don't understand your complaints because this is virtually true for every single action fiction in the world. Male or female.
Most action heroes are extraordinary people, though.

Here is my point: This show stresses the power of modern weaponry, and this is its appeal: As you read, you keep wondering what would happen if the Itami & Co. went out of bullets. After all, Rory is capricious. Having the good guys suddenly fight on the natives' terms would have allowed for some very dramatic and nailbiting situations but all that is thrown out the window when the girl goes into either some kind of martial trance or the royal guards are actually peasants who bullshitted their way to the position. Guess we'll never know.
>>
>>122434569
There were two manga. One shonen, the other one shojo.

So basically, you had no idea what you were talking about, but chose to do so anyway by filling it in with baseless, counterintuitive assumptions.

Maybe you should stop trying to twist things to fit your own preconceived notions and actually try to work with the pieces you're given.
>>
>>122435529
>chose to do so anyway
What do you mean "anyway"? It was not a conscious decision.

>Maybe you should stop trying to twist things to fit your own preconceived notions
Maybe you should tell that to yourself and every person I've been arguing against too, faggot. Get off your high horse and stop coming with butthurt accusations just because I'm being the bigger man here.

At any rate, it was a silly scene even if she was good at using a bayonet. The fight was easy for the girl and it shouldn't have been, seeing as the opponents were several supposedly trained fighters of high rank.
>>
>>122435945
>What do you mean "anyway"? It was not a conscious decision.
It was a conscious decision to make baseless assumptions that directly contradict what actually happened in the story.

Good on you for manning up and admitting that you were wrong, but that's pointless if you're not going to learn anything from it.

actually 3 new spin-offs, though the last one is just a series-in-series, since it's a doujin Itami likes. It's about a cleaning company that employs magical girls that became NEETs

>>122430169
and before that it was about CIA field ops getting their ass wiped in an ambush. Gate threads have been shit because of butthurt autists for a very long time now
>>
>>122436254
I can only think you are being ironic.
You made a conscious decision to make baseless assumptions that directly contradict what happened in this thread.
The guy you argued with said he didn't know that she had those qualifications, and yet you accuse him of "consciously" deciding to make assumptions that contradict this.

I'm not sure if you are trying to make a joke or if you're just stupid. That's why I am asking.
>>
>>122436254
>>I'm going to assume that she doesn't have extensive CQC training, and then get angry about it

It's a combination of them being intimidated by the guns and Kuri being skilled at CQC. It's not hard to believe even in a semi-realistic setting. You're just being hard-headed at this point.

Not the subject, and not extraordinary in the fighter sense.

It was rhetoric for QCQ situation.

Fair assumption. (Presumably) battle-hardened warriors shouldn't turn into petrified incompetents because of it, though.

>Kuri being skilled at CQC
So were (presumably) the royal guards.
>>
>>122436360
If she defeated those men, then it follows that she must have training. It would make no sense for a tiny girl to handle a group of big, armed guards without training, and it makes no sense to assume that's what happened.

The manga presented several dots for him to connect, and he chose to draw a cat instead.

>>122436796

>battle-hardened warriors shouldn't turn into petrified incompetents because of it, though.

Even the motherfucking Delta Force would be intimidated if they had to fight someone with weapons ten times stronger than the ones we actually have.

>So were (presumably) the royal guards.
I'm 100% sure that a modern boxer can beat 1 vs 1 a Roman skilled in brawls at any time. The art of fighting without weapons had made huge progresses in 2000 years, you know?
>>
>>122436963
>The art of fighting without weapons had made huge progresses
Not necessarily the arts of fighting (though those too, to an extent). but modern men are significantly larger and stronger than men from back then, besides also being not malnourished.
>>
>>122432258

There is a actual novel written about a British guy from the 1830's or so who got transported back to medieval times. He introduced factories, advanced farming tech, and of course the newspaper.
>>
>>122436963
>Even the motherfucking Delta Force would be intimidated if they had to fight someone with weapons ten times stronger than the ones we actually have.
Sure, but training should still kick in. Especially upon seeing her using it as a small spear.

We'd be the same if we were confronted with alien weapons that could fry us in less than a second even if those same aliens challenged us to a beatdown.

>So were (presumably) the royal guards.
What is CQC under intimidation. Also fist fighting has improved in 2000 years I agree with that anon, modern punching style was only conceived in the 20th century.
>>
>>122436963
Wrestling has been around since before the romans has not advanced significantly since that time, unless you believe knowing how to box or wrestle to be equivalent to hokuto shinken. While the methods with which we wage war have advanced significantly, and so have the weapons we use to do so, hand to hand combat has remained near stagnant in comparison. A trained fighter from the roman era facing off against a trained fighter from today would be basically even in ability.

If some ayylmao came up to me waving an otherworldly weapon I'd be petrified but Itami & Co. were humans with knifes on sticks, basically. Not too alien, and we know that these people were used to fighting other civilizations by way of the Gate. They shouldn't be petrified from fear is what I think.

Also, I don't remember the facts, but: Did the royal guards know of the rifles' capabilities upon the CQC? Wouldn't change my verdict but still worth consideration.
>>
>>122427560
Don't forget that apparently SOG, Spetsnaz, and Chinese Operatives don't know about night vision, aerial/satellite surveillance, and suppressors. Only Glorious Nippons does.
>>
>>122437450
If you believe they did not train at all you're sorely mistaken. Of course the modern training would be more effective, if only because of the greater understanding of the human body, but not to such a large degree that it would be a deciding factor. The sport has not advanced that much, and training has not advanced that much, that it could create such a massive gap.
>>
>>122437453
>They shouldn't be petrified from fear is what I think.
They just saw what a gun could do. For all they know it kills by sound.

>>122437837

Look Anon, I've started MMA training at the local gym 1 year ago because I was a fat fuck.

Let's take Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as an example. It currently the most practical (if not only) way to fight on the ground, without weapons. A person trained in BJJ will mostly ALWAYS, ALWAYS manage to fuck up a person not trained in it while fighting on the ground with no weapons. No matter the difference in strenght, no matter the skill in brawl. And guess what? BJJ has been "invented" quite recently.

You probably had some guys back in the day that ended up noticing that "Hey, if I do this lever on the opponent arm, it's pretty effective", but it probably was an individual discovery, not organized in systematic training nor discipline by anyone.

Japan basically told all the other nations of the world to fuck off since the portal appeared in Japanese soil.

>>122438582
I'm aware, Russia and China were also making noise about wanting the gate, and then they found three teams that seemed to each be operating without knowledge of the other two. There's no blacks in China's or Russia's special forces, so that left America as the culprit which was a bigger deal because America was supposed to be sitting back and waiting for its cut.

It was still funny.

>>122438758
FI to orthodox/southpaw is not an invention of a new method to kill another person but an evolution of FI based on changing rules surrounding the sport.

An invention would be an entirely new form of martial arts, not a change to form or preferred techniques in response to new rules.

The Empire is basically Rome except with fantasy races thrown in. JSDF casually curbstomps them while just playing defense.

Moreover I can't visualize the machinegunning and rocketing of masses of primitives armed with pre-gunpowder weapons from the sky as being anything higher than an unpleasant though necessary butchery, certainly not a glorious crusade of which the SDF should be proud, or something they would want to be leaked back to the people at home to be broadcast uncensored on TV like what happened to the Americans in Vietnam.

The Gate is not easily accessible. It lies in the middle of a built up urban area on an island on the other side of the sea. The gate itself is not even wide enough to build a major highway through, severely limiting the lines of supply and communication and the ability to build and maintain and exploit colonies on they other side. The indigenous population is entirely hostile and probably has smallpox too. They already have a wealth of untapped resources on their own sovereign territory that is far far easier to exploit.

There's hard work to be done for sure, but the wealth accessible on the other side (and I'm not just talking about space or resources) is more than enough incentive for any nation to make a move. They have races that consider 100 to be young for fucks sake.

>>122441426
They'd have to know about that shit first. They also have an Imperial princess who would like nothing more but to fuck Itami and get endless supply of yaoi so there's no issue with them passing by.
>>
>>122441515
They didn't have permission when Itami a uniformed officer took his Hummer and drove in there aided and abetted by a superior officer. The small fact that he had no official orders to do so won't stand in the way of a determined diplomat.

>>122441573
You severely underestimate the task.

Sure, they could do it, if somebody taught them how to. But otherwise it'd just be a mystery to them, with the ammunition being a mystery inside a mystery.

Didn't one of the early chapters mention that China was trying to get access to the gate via the UN? Kinda wish that angle was played out more (as well as the US trying to leverage its "bases on Japanese soil" card) instead of just having both of them and Russia sending their spec op teams to the same place at the same time.

Maybe the anime will do something different?

If you're talking about the special forces segment, it came off as unintentionally hilarious because of the way it was presented.

That and the infamous bayonet fights are guaran-fucking-teed to set off a thread derailment. Someone probably mentioned this before but little scenes like those stand out because it's shameless NIPPON STRONGU popping up in between arcs of a realistic military operation against the fantastical.

Once the US, Russia and China would have moved in, he would not have any authority left. The big powers would be too busy with each other to give him any room to maneuver.
In the best of cases, the world would be neatly divided into different colonies.
In the worst of cases, they use nuclear weaponry and level the place.

>Once the US, Russia and China would have moved in, he would not have any authority left.
He's already got basically no authority with Japan in place. The Japanese can put up pretenses to be humane and fair all they want, but the fact is they are the ones with the guns, and they're obviously taking him for a ride and offering terms that are overwhelmingly favorable for themselves while the locals benefit only mildly. It's unavoidable that they will end up under the thumb of a foreign power, but at least by expanding the pool he can make sure that there is some competition to offer him better terms.

If there is anything dealing with the Japanese ought to have taught him it's that the foreigners are slaves to public opinion in the other world and that world's public opinion does not take kindly to blowing shit up especially not helpless primitives.

It's like the past 100 years went by without you noticing.

The US are at war with primitive armies almost all the time. The media may report it, but nobody even really cares anymore. It's just more pictures of more brown corpses.
With communists trying to take advantage of some poor aliens, the US will have ample reason to move in and bomb stuff. It's what they do. It's what they've been doing for decades.
I'm not even sure if the Russian and Chinese civilians would even hear about the war if their governments didn't want them to.
Even if their populations do find out about it, the presence of evil imperialist America will be ample reason to move in and bomb stuff.

I really hate those modernization stories where someone goes into a medieval world and brings them all kinds of technologies and advances their culture.
Technological advancement comes from a culture that needs those advancements. A culture that is not ready for certain technologies won't have any use for it.

Otherwise the millions of people who are trying to help out in Africa right now would have had much more success. But the niggers just like to live in shit circumstances and are insufferable cunts. Modernizing a country isn't that easy. You need a strong leader that declares that as a national doctrine and then it might work after 30 years.

>Does she have any valid reason to marry that one guy?

His grandparents came from her world and have a royal bloodline so his royal magic is strong. She also wants a beta as a husband because they live in a patriarchal society and the only other wedding prospects with a royal bloodline are ambitous people from her own kingdom. So she asks him to marry her and in return he'll get the princess life in the castle while she leads the state.

They don't really give the people there anything.

I find the whole premise unrealistic. As I said, you won't magically turn a shithole into a prospering place with some technologies otherwise Africa wouldn't be such a shit place either.
It's not technological advancements that further cultural development, rather it's a culture which changes, that brings forth technological development. Just think about it. China had all the necessary knowledge to invent steam engines and the like. It's said even Rome was somewhat semi-industrial in some regards. Yet both cultures failed to have the industiral revolution like the UK did. Simply speaking, it was the difference in what the british society demanded/needed.

Well, my whole point is that a society needs to be ready to embrace certain technologies. It's not that you can somehow make a society ready to embrace advancements by simply introducing new ideas and technologies.

If you look at history the modernization of countries always progressed around core technologies or industries. For the UK it was the textile industry, for Germany it was the railway, for China it was cheap plastic toys. Needless to say, those three countries had to first create a national identity which incorporates the strive for advancement.

We have been developing new technologies at a rate never before seen and we are still accelerating. Yes, we are seeing signs of a societal/systematic collapse that will occur in the future, but there is nothing to indicate that we're unable to accept the technologies as they come. And even those collapses won't throw us back into the stone age. They will be stepping stones into the future.

You're looking at this wrong. The need for a culture of innovation only applies to closed markets, which many of the medieval ages were. But it's all a free market in present day, very few countries have export restrictions. Once something is invented, like in the Germany, it doesn't need to be reinvented again in Tanzania, because it's a free market. Inventions will flow through, and has been over the past century. Worldwide absolute poverty rates have dropped by a half in the last two decades. (Source: http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21578643-world-has-astonishing-chance-take-billion-people-out-extreme-poverty-2030-not). Africa is improving without churning out engineers (Though it would be better for them if it did).

That being said, bringing back tech from the future would help, so long as it helps them currently. No point bringing back an SSD when they haven't developed crop rotation yet.

They produced 200 tons of silver a year. And nearly 80,000 tons of iron. They mined so much that lead pollution in ice cores in Greenland quadrupled during the imperial era and fell off thereafter.
>>
>>122445407
Well...let's see it like this. DO you think people from 50 years ago could appreciate social media? Or smart phones? We shouldn't make the mistake and say that the path for technological advancement is already set in stone and we just have to uncover it. It is more prudent to say that the technology we have today is a result of our own specific culture. At first glance the existence of our gadgets today might seem only natural...but think about it. Who in their right mind would come up with the concept of a railway? Or think about the Aztecs. They weren't even using the wheel because of their mountaineous topography.
