I've never read the source material, but I've read the manga and it makes me sad they leave alot of the character reactions to things out in the anime And I feel like alot of that charm ended up on the cutting room floor and it kills me.
>>
>>135041919

I thought the characters were decent enough. The setting alone makes me love it. I just hope it gets an actual second season.
>>
It's a shit adaption, OP
They skip over scenes(the drunk banter at the spring bring one), tone down d-day levels of violence into a pg13 off screen blood spurt, the characters feel flat, the nudity that was just there and not highlighted becomes flashy censored fan service.
And worst of all, it as a whole feels lile its being shot with a moe filter.the character redesigns are awful and uninteresting as fuck.
I dont give a fuck about the nationalism or how they depict america, because its a moderm army invading a high fantasy world, and thats a solid concept, but bothers a bunch of faggots for whatever reason.

Why would you know such a thing? Are you a faggot or something?
>>
The GATE anime was great fanservice for fans of the manga, but as a standalone it was meh. The only person I know who got really into it through the anime was a fellow Kuronekofag that I told to watch it because Rory is Ruri 2.0.

And yeah, I agree about how haremy it got. I'd suspect part of that was them worrying that it wouldn't go over well on TV if the obvious pairing was a 30 year old man with a loli. (Not that she fits any of the usual loli tropes if you actually watch the show, but I can imagine the media throwing a fit anyway.)

I did like anime Leilei better than in the manga, though, if nothing else she's the only one who improved visually. I thought she was a young boy for the first dozen chapters of the manga, but she's quite cute in the anime.
>>
>>135042187

Well, I'm an Americlap, but I wouldn't put such shit past our government. I thought the black ops shit was realistic, in scenario, not how it actually played out, except for how the japs whoop the shit out of everybody. Didn't bother me at all though.


>>135042211

You can't tell me it isn't better than One Punch Man.

>>135042176

There still is only one female interested in him. How long's it been since you watched it?
>>
>>135042196
Its a war story in a high fantasy realm you dense fucker. I cant take the battle on the hill seriously if it cuts to the next scene and its some moe ass faggotry in the next scene
>>
Oh, also, as a total pervert and Roryfag, I take issue with the anime ruining her panchira. In the manga we get a glorious lewd lace thong, and the anime turned it into boring pink briefs.

Again, they probably felt weird because she's a "loli," but I think it actually backfired, because what she had on in the manga went a long way toward establishing her as a sexually mature woman who's just in a childish body, while the anime's version makes her seem more childish.

It shouldn't be, because they threw the entire premise of having Japanese operators operating in Dungeons and Dragons, and instead made it a harem anime.

Because it's ultimately a generic self-insert fantasy harem series with a bunch if nationalistic japan self-wank jammed into it.

In other words it's on roughly the same level as shit like SAO. It's not very good.

It's boring. They sacrifice any real physical or verbal conflict or tension because whoever's writing can't portray the JSDF as weak. So you have a show where the characters wreck everything in their way and a political landscape too black and white to be interesting.

Itami is also really embarrassing wish fulfillment, even by anime standards.

You are the worst of low intelligence shitters.

There is only one fucking girl that is interested in him at all. His ex just wants to keep using him and being his friends, hence the "start over" and the fact they were friends since middle school.

You don't know what a fucking harem is. Fuck off, you underage little faggot.
>>
>>135040942
The premise was so good that, for several episodes, /a/ wasn't willing to admit that it was really fucking boring. A military campaign in a fantasy realm? Sign me the fuck up. Then an apostle to the god of death is on their side and on Itami's dick, and you realize this is some really pathetic fantasy of a sad ex-JSDF guy who never saw any action and never got any action.
>>
>>135043146
The fantasy elements are just minor additions to the roman empire theme.

Your operating in D&D implies that the fantasy elements would be the major theme, which they are not.

What exactly would they be weak against going up against people wielding swords? If you're bitching about them BTFO of China, Russia, and USA on their own turf, whatever. You can still rationalize it because it's on their own turf. The only thing unrealistic about SDF is their actual size.

One wants to bone, one thinks they are married, one still loves him, one is mentally unstable but she's the one he wants to be with and she starts developing feelings eventually

The only woman 100% not interested is that one subordinate who is shocked to know the guy is a delta force navy seal commando tier one operator black/ spec ops elite

Half the show is spent on the girls while there is an entire realm of cool shit to explore. Instead of us getting screen time with long term surveillance drone operations or figuring out how to launch a satellite into orbit without building a giant launch site, we deal with shit like "Why won't Itami bone this death goddess?"

>>135043212
They fight a fucking dragon, magic is prevalent and the modern knowledge of our world is already augmenting magic, and there is tons of magical shit that permeates all over the place.

You are retarded and clearly have never played D&D with a good DM if you don't think politics also shows up all the time.

Because the characters are flat. You are either Mary Sue main character, a damsel in distress in need of a dick to suck or an evil rapist.

The plot is also as dumb as Elysium. You have a world where you have power players like wizards and demigods, and they instantly ally themselves with the "good guys", leaving as the only enemies Ancient Roman levels of soldiers. Not even western movies are this bad.

You should see the comments in there. It's like a whole nother story after reading the chapter.
>>
>>135043087
Yup.

Started with a great premise but so much retarded shit I couldn't keep watching.

The author made a world with magic, elves, dragons, and immortal battle lolis and who's in charge? Not the people with magic, elves, dragons, and immortal battle lolis? nope, regular people who can't fight their way out of a wet paper sack are in charge who throw endless numbers of incompetent soldiers at their enemy.

These people live with the very real threat of death by dragon every day and they can't fight against men in helicopters? Why didn't the dragons eat them all already? They obviously have the power to. Why isn't their kingdom ruled by wizards? They obviously can't fight against someone with magic if they can't even face a tiny army with guns. Why are elves living in tiny villages? They're centuries old ELVES who can learn more about combat in a few centuries of their near immortal lives than a human can in 5 lifetimes.

It could have been good, it could have been so good but the whole story became shit for JAPAN STRONG

What's wrong with nationalism? Nationalism just means the opposite of globalism. That doesn't mean you can't support foreign countries being independent, nor does it mean you only support your own country.

Maybe I chose the wrong term for it, I meant to describe people who are not Japanese but because of their love of anime/Japanese media as a whole they become infatuated with the idea of Japan/being Japanese and relentlessly hype the country up as some utopian ideal for the rest of the world to move towards.

I don't really think there is anything wrong with being nationalistic so long as it doesn't lead to delusion or xenophobia.
>>
>>135043356
To be fair, dragon attacks are likely uncommon enough to not have to be a major concern. You never see the dragon go after large populations or cities, since they have the capability of fighting back. It's picking off small towns and settlements which have no chance in hell of surviving the attack.

Depending on the in universe lore as to why dragon attacks are minimal, who knows. Almost 100% of dragons hibernate and rarely have to go out to eat. They sleep on their piles of gold and shit and just chill out. If someone wakes a dragon and keeps it awake, then it's cause for problems since the dragon has to eat all the time and thus, activity continues. Standard trope actually.

Mages and wizards could be easily shunned as outliers. It happened in Magi - The kingdom made magic users essentially second class citizens and then eventually slaves. Used them and kept them locked away.

But that is really the problem, GATE doesn't fully go into these details because, well, girls + Itami = QUALITY TELEVISION AMIRITE?

You do know that the show doesn't stop being a harem just because you say so right?

There are 2 things that are required for a show to be a harem

1. Are there at least 4 female primary characters of varying body and personality types and no more than 2 male primary characters? - Yes

2. Are 80 percent of the female primary characters romantically/sexually interested in the male MC? - Yes

Then the show is a harem show and you are delusional if you continue to act like it isn't.

The anime covered them both. Magicians are rare because it's genetic and magicians are usually living on their own, hermit-like. Second, dragons weren't supposed to attack because people had a calendar on when they would wake up. The old perv said it, it wasn't supposed to be awake for another 50 years. What he addressed there weren't flaws. I suggested the novels because I thought he wanted indepth shit.

As a huge fan of fantasy that's an outright lie. Elves, wherever they exist in 99% of fantasy own the shit out of humans.

Dragons, wherever they exist in 99% of fantasy have something which counters them, primarily wizards but heroes with magical weapons also count.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu8vML5TPVE

It's the same problem Naruto had. If you make your enemies all powerful unbeatable gods then they'd better own the world, if they don't you'd better have equally powerful people to keep them in check.

If dragons exist then there'd better damn well be something to stop them and if something can stop a being powerful enough that the JSDF had a hard time even hurting one then where were they to stop the JSDF?

It was so badly written I can't get over it. Stop making excuses, series was shit and you know it.

It's not a fucking military documentary.

It's a medieval fantasy anime where the main guy happens to be a modern soldier. Of course some of the spotlight is going to be on the girls, since they're main characters. Storytelling 101.

>Quickly brushing over details to get it out of the way so rory can grind itami's crotch are not anyone's definition of "addressed"
Or maybe you have a short attention span. Infodumps are not entertaining at the very least, when entertainment is the point of fictional media.

Elves often are on the decline while humans are the new hotness.

Also, dragons are often so strong you might want to bring an army to kill one of them. Or the strongest heroes in the realm.

As far as having a force that can stop a dragon / the JSDF, it's entirely possible their counter measure for a dragon might not work on the scale necessary to combat the JSDF forces. A helicopter has more maneuverability (unpredictable movements) and, in general, probably just as much armor as the dragon, and really they don't even have to get as close either. Imagine a C-130 Hercules just orbiting a city and hammering it from way up. They'd have no chance.

I would love a show that is the opposite of what we got. Instead of following the Japanese Military casually taking over this new realm and solving all problems, I'd love a show from the perspective of the nation that wants to not be overrun by an enormous threat.

What dark deals with wizards will they make? New weapons that are forged? What sorts of changes to warfare must be made to combat this new threat

Abandon all swords for normal troops and use bows, only enagage in ambushes instead of open field marches, keep the enemy away, recruit wizards as Anti air, etc etc. Heroes on a journey for legendary magical items.

It'd be a fucking sweet thing to watch.

Hey you're free to disagree but from what I've seen its pretty standard harem set up with interesting stuff going on around it but that's just not my thing.

>>135043757
>Elves, wherever they exist in 99% of fantasy own the shit out of humans.
LOL is that why series about Elves lording it over Humans and rebelling against them are common? They're also written as forest dwellers. You must have forgot...but this is just shittily crafted bait.

>If dragons exist then there'd better damn well be something to stop them
Yeah it's called hibernation. They treat dragons as forces of nature because they can't stop them at all. Elves, dark elves, cat people, humans, etc. It's natural to them. Apostles might be able to stop them but it's not their duty.

>It was so badly written I can't get over it. Stop making excuses, series was shit and you know it.

That is literally the fucking complain you fucking idiot. Get some reading comprehension.

The girls should not be here. This was a military force in a fantasy realm. Why the fuck is this Otaku that also turns out to be a speical forces amazing soldier hanging out with all these fucking women all of whom like him and want on his dick

Why are the political envoys trying to save their nation binging on yaoi.

There are shows that handle info dumps well and there is a way to build world lore without resorting to big breasted elves and slutty goth loli's.

After the first couple episodes it turned to shit and just kept getting worse.

The only thing that kept me watching was hope and Rori. By now I realize that the series is nothing but harem shit and Rori isn't nearly enough to carry the show. It was an interesting watch but I wouldn't care enough to read the manga or even wish for a S2. Give another series a chance at an anime, a better one.
>>
>>135043923
Elves typically revolt because they see humans as an invasive species, like rodents.

Elves have a long lifespan of sometimes thousands of years yet still only have family units of 1-3 children, and they have average sized communes in the forest.

Humans shit out kids constantly and live 1/10 as long, spread across the land, hollow out mountains and cut down forests to fuel their empires. The Elves see this not only as invasive, but destructive, because left to their own devices there won't be shit left for anyone.

It's also why the Elves just left Middle Earth in LOTR. They opted out of that shit.

In a world where strong men are coupled with arrogance, Itami must have been a godsend. It's why this otaku SF has girls wagging their butts at him. It's not rocket science.

>Why are the political envoys trying to save their nation binging on yaoi.
That fucking reaching and you know it. Stop that shit.

So this show is not for you. Great. Go out and find another thread. The lore is currently being built for you when you watch the anime but you choose to ignore it because you get triggered by fucking anime girls.

Watched the first few episodes and it was promising but just started to rapidly decay

But yeah I suppose its more believable that I just haven't seen it. This is exactly what I was talking about with regards to the fanbase, have fun wondering why more people don't like your "well written" show.
>>
>>135044002
Yes and humans clearly weren't invasive to the elves and dark elves in this series. No reason for war. If they were, then humans didn't dare invade the elves.

So where's the army and strongest heroes in the realm to fight the JSDF?

Or do they just let the dragons eat everyone until it gets bored when it wakes up?

The author created a system that is untenable. It is called a plot hole when something is not internally consistent and this one is so glaring it makes the entire series stupid in its execution.

We have immortal battle lolis but not one of them can go take back A SACRED HILL. Don't call it a sacred hill if it's not important enough to send a dozen demigod battle lolis to go take it back. Don't create creatures strong enough to take on the JSDF and nothing powerful enough to counter it. Don't create near immortal elves too weak to fight a dragon they knew was going to wake up in 50 years.

Stop defending this shit. Goddamn.

It's not even a fucking harem. And people were disappointed because they were mangafags and thought the manga was the source material when the original source didn't even have that much blood and gore, only implied.

Again, suck my dick, nerd. Prove something sucks objectively, not because you hate moe animu grillz. It's a pussy complaint and you know it.

Correcting someone who misquoted a post that went into great detail about how a modern military vs fantasy kingdom from the perspective of the fantasy side, is not moving goal posts.

It's the definition of a straw man, which you are still doing. It's intellectually bankrupt and you need to stop shitposting.

Scroll up to where multiple posts outline how 4 out of 4 girls are interested in Itami and their relationship with him, to the point where one believes they were married and she's just okay with it.

If you want a moegirl anime, make a moegirl anime. Don't dress it up in dragons and elves if you aren't going to focus on the dragons and elves.

And how do I prove it's not just samefaggotry? Talking about the anime it's only been Rory who's interested in Itami.

Risa's not even part of the goddamn "harem". She's a side character who's never ever going to be one of the main characters.

>not read ahead
Nigger I know every spoiler from all the threads that came in. You're talking about the novels at this point, which means your complaints about the anime is retarded as shit. You got exposed and now you're trying to salvage your non-existent dignity.

>>135042958

Ok, maybe SJW was a dumb term to use, I don't really buy into the whole thing either.

All I'm saying is that there's been a huge pushback against sexualizing "underage" characters in anime by Japanese media and politicians lately, and when coupled with the fact that the GATE franchise was already controversial because of its nationalist overtones, they likely toned down Rory's lewds to avoid any "Right Wing Warmonger Anime Sexualizes Little Girls!" headlines.

Am I an idiot for literally expecting non-personal preferences for explanations as to why this show can't be someone's AOTY? His complaints were literally "I didn't get what I expected".

It's like criticizing Naruto for not being historical fiction about ninjas.
Or K-On for not concentrating on the girls' practices for reaching Budokan.
Or Gate for not completely diving into /k/ territory because somehow, all the world building it has done is negated by 3 otherworld girls.

>>135040942
When it aired it was teasing medieval vs modern with politics and violence but felt waay too SoL.

After marathoning through it a second time, I liked it more.

Then I read the manga and feel disappointed in the anime but that's fine because everything I was looking for in the story is there.

>>135045210
In Outbreak Company, Japan exchanges manga for mineral resources

Meanwhile, in Gate, Japan wastes millions of dollars, attacking fodder with missiles and bullets, especially the ones mounted on helicopters.

And none of those missiles and ammo are produced by Japan and were bought from Uncle Sam.

Japan has been in the red in Gate anime and have not even come close to breaking even yet.
>>
>>135044820
What I'm saying is that they fucked up.

I think they looked at the LN and manga and said "If we draw this quasi-loli character in these super-slutty panties, the media is gonna have a field day" and toned it down, as they did with many other aspects of Rory.

The problem is that those aspects are a lot of what helps establish that, despite appearances, she's a mature adult with a healthy sexual appetite, and so without them she seems much more like a typical loli character, even with scenes like the one in the courtroom. Part of what made her so compelling to me was that she didn't fall into the played-out "immortal loli" trope, but she's much closer to it in the anime.

They also make more of a point of highlighting how young she looks in the anime. When I read the manga, I interpreted her as being like a Kuroneko type - petite and cute, but post-pubescent, more like a high school freshman. The anime makes it seem like everybody perceives her as substantially younger than that. Maybe that was the intention in the manga as well, but it didn't come off like that to me.

What that means is that it comes off as much creepier when she DOES get sexualized in the anime, as in the Ryokan scene, and that's where I think the character changes were counterproductive.

What strategy? Japan has a limited amount of missiles and ammo. If they don't get profit enough fast, they are in danger of lowering their defensive capabilities on Earth by using up their weapon supplies in the Gate planet.

If America decided to suspend selling missiles to Japan and Japan ends up running out of missiles, they would start getting fucked hard in the Gate planet because bullets aren't gonna be good enough.

Japan took advantage of a preteen ruler's tendencies to take over their culture. That's really retarded, even more than what Gate Japan did to the Empire.
