Airdrop happening soon!
It's pretty bad, but it looks like its going to swing from shit back to NIPPONESE STRONG! JSDF CAN DO NO WRONG! for this episode. I think by the time this is done if I recommend the show to anyone I'll just tell them to skip all the episodes that aren't that.
ITS A FUCKING MASSACRE AND I LOVE IT
What kind of name is Beefeater. Seriously!! What's wrong with author's naming sense
Good episode. Is the next one the last episode?
I guess we can still hold out for the LN translations to pick back up.
I love episodes with Imperial genonide, they are the best. I love how they play this happy music while they are fucking mercilessly killing dozens of people who are unable to fight back.
The last time I saw a rifle grenade was when French used it, I didn't know it was still a thing elsewhere.
Imagine you're next in line to the throne and thrown into prison by your idiot brother who wants to destroy the country you love in a foolish war against an unbeatable enemy.
>nothing was done to her
if candle wax can still be this runny by the time it reaches the floor, the room has to be pretty damn warm
Manly as fuck.
>them background soldiers though
Fuck you, I restarted Let's Meow Meow because of you.
>you'll never be hime-carried by a big strong nipponese man
shit meant millenia
Combat drops are pretty much obsolete because they just take much longer to prepare than helicopter insertion. The only time when combat drops are really done are when you are dropping regiment sized units (in this case the entire Japanese airborne) or dropping heavy equipment which the Japs don't use either.
Bloody hell, episode 23 sure got me aroused. Blasting this BGM in the first half was something surreal.
Nah there's also a lot of harem shit. It's worth tolerating for JSDF if you're one of those people who pretended they were curbstomping medieval soldiers when they played with army men as a child.
If the anime had shown any of her bonding with Furuta, she may have lived, but nope.
Nah mate, you won't find whiter than me, and everything I said is true.
When will they get overwhelmed by a bunch of soldiers who pin them down, forcibly rip their clothes off and mercilessly rape them multiple times ultil they are pregnant and then kill them?
>air drop on the capital
>storming a prison to free political prisoners and rescue VIPs sieged in the Japanese embassy
>leaving the AO right after
>not occupying the capital streets and put under siege the Imperial Palace, forcing Zorzal to either surender or sit at the negotiations table
They sure don't want the risk to turn the Empire in a shithole like Iraq or Libya, even if the country is actually ruled by a joke of a dictator
Asanagi should get to work already
>We wanted to be soldiers but we were born with wombs, so we are destined to take dick! I love dick so much i don't know why i wanted to be anything else!
>this whole anime is just JSDF STRONG the show
I wish it had been JSDF STRONK most of the time and less harem antics.
And I LIKE harem antics, but there are other shows for that.
nipponjin saikou, one of the best episode
I'd rather Giselle, so I guess we're enemies
It's already demoralizing for the "great" empire and the public that the enemy can just forcibly open their gates, drop soldiers anywhere, and kill most of their soldiers within a few hours with really small casualties. And they just stopped and left. It's like they're saying that they can come in at anytime, no need for sieges. I'm surprised they're not Hannibal-after-Cannae levels of scared right now.
>take a peek at reddit
>look at the most upvoted comments
/a/ is always right.
I wouldn't want to critique NGE either. It's a show about a whiny bitch man who masturbates to his comatose half german copilot.
That is triggering.
Douchenozzle was asking help from his adviser because his empire was falling apart. It's not strange for people in position to do that.
But it's reddit. They think they're smarter than everybody else outside their hugbox. Stop going there, anon.
>you're being tricked into thinking of rori's character as being acceptable
Yes, I'm certainly have my misgivings about her most likely lack of purity after 960 years, but she's still worth it. Same about the elves.
I'd get pretty scared if I were locked up in a small room, not knowing when I'll be out, not knowing if it's night or day, and with my life on the hands of people that might kill me, even if I'm part of the royal family, probably especially that I'm a part of the royal family. Boredom isn't the only thing that would drive you to panic in a dungeon, there are other things to consider.
I love culture shock.
>that look on Zorzal's face when he realized he fucked up
I live for moments like these
She just wanted her favorite carpet muncher back.
i think this is a better board for you.
Tomboys are for _______

You know, I suspect the author names his characters the same way I do, by looking around to the left and seeing what's there. I've named people Leche, Sal, Harina, Huevo, Gin, etc
If I see this well scene one more fucking time I swear to God.
assuming that girl weights about 40kilos (since she's so petite next to Kengun and japanese are already practically midgets) with all and armor, Kengun is in really good shape if he can just forget he's holding her
Also, did Sky actually drop the TL of this series?
35 year old christmas cake is back!
Don't nip soldiers routinely carry 40 kilos on their backpacks?
>Also, did Sky actually drop the TL of this series?
Yeah, chinese piracy crackdown. It's ironic but it happened.
>not knowing if it's night or day
you can tell by when the food comes in, or how far the candle has been reduced. It's still nothing to be a drama queen about. All those nobles have a higher chance of being killed or tortured, and none of them bitched about their fate like Pina. Boredom is the only thing going for her.
I would suck his dick. No homo.
Can someone explain to me what the fuck Zolzal was thinking with messing with Japan.
He's nothing but a brute with no critical thinking skills at all. It's not that he thinks what he's doing is a good idea really, he doesn't really think much at all. He just blindly takes Tyule's advice. And again, he's very stupid and not capable of critical thinking, so he isn't suspicious of Tyule at all because she managed to get him crowned Emperor. For an idiot like him, that makes her the most trustworthy and reliable advisor ever, because a pea brain like him can't imagine anything better than being emperor.
Hence he takes all her advice and assumes it must be brilliant even if doesn't see the merit in it himself. He just goes "oh yeah that's good you're totally right," then proceeds to ensure the Empire is destroyed
That's Hell March 2 senpai. Every bit as good as HM1, depending how how strong your prescription is in your nostalgia goggles. HM 3 is... ugh. I'm not even gonna post a link to it.
You're a stupid hick in nothing but rags. I hold a gun to your head and tell you to hand over your valuables, what do you do? That's essentially what's happening. It isn't logical to pick a fight with a big dog who can tear off your fucking face especially when they've proven time and time again you're gonna be the bottom bitch at the end of the day. This ain't no underdog story, m8. Also
The United Kingdom would like to educate you on what true white history looks like.
eh, yeah, but from a narrative point of view, it's ridiculous. We see how events are progressing. Pina is in prison for 1 day? 2?
At the same time we have wounded and dying soldiers, we have a freaking child keeping her cool after her parents died and working for peace and helping the marquis guy.
Meanwhile Pina reacts in the most intense way, screaming more than freaking no-daddy elf, after 1 day of being alone.
While all these stuff happen to the rest of the characters.
It makes her really, really pathetic and lame. Like a spoiled little girl.
No, scratch that, because the actual spoiled little girl proved to be quite the badass and didn't break under stress.
Can somebody tell me why they were lazily parachuting in like it's WW2 rather than going in hard and fast by chopper like it's Vietnam? Doesn't floating down en masse open them up to being picked off by arrow fire and flying wyvern troops?
Indians fought tooth and nail and now they're almost all gone. But hey, at least those warriors died proud deaths for their land before it was taken away and their descendants forced to live in barren shitholes.
Anon, Pina's not looking at this from a narrative point of view. All she knows is that it's not long before her vagina is ravaged.
She has no time to think about anything else but her survival and safety.
Pride is a sin and something that often leads to making stupid decisions. The will to survive is stronger. The will to have your nation thrive and leave something behind should be even stronger. If you aren't trying to make peace with a stronger power then be prepared to bend over when they come knocking unless you have plot on your side.
Nigger there are Indian reservations an hours drive from where I live. They are poor as fuck. The only ones that look nice are the ones that get Casinos, most of them are desperately poor shanty towns basically.
Like I said, be prepared to bend over.
>The writer who made her react like this was aware of the narrative.
I suggest you keep your head in solitary confinement then, with big black men chomping at the bit to get at your anus.
This is the Irish President, Michael D. Higgins. Considering the fact that he's only a mustache and top hat away from being Mr. Moneybags the Monopoly Guy, yeah, I'd say Irish people are pretty damn white bruh.
Sorry maybe you misunderstood: I asked for examples of savage cultures resisting a far more technologically advanced military industrial complex, not small, underequipped forces in modern armies fighting larger modern armies with more resources.
These clowns are using swords and arrows against modern military tech.
All prostitutes working Alnus are screened by Japanese doctors. And their armory is guarded too. What fucking success would he have? Making sure the Japanese increase security tenfold?
Okay let's say this totally idiotic plan of sending whores to somehow sabotage a modern military base works.
They just ship in more guns and bombs through the gate and now they have triple the guards and aren't allowing in any newcomers.
It's not their choice, its yours. You're the leader who must decide if our foe is someone you can handle on an even playing field or not. If you choose to let their pride drive you into a corner then that by definition makes you a pussy with no real spine. Someone who isn't fit to be a leader. Yes, you should be taking peoples feelings and thought into consideration on the matter of a foreign power coming to slap your shit when it does happen but you should be prepared for when it does happen and know if you have the firepower and tactics to make sure you don't get destroyed. Don't be a prideful asshole who gets everything your nation built up destroyed especially when the power gap is something like the empires and the nippons.
>All prostitutes working Alnus are screened by Japanese doctors. And their armory is guarded too.
Doctors can't screen for magic powers, right? Guards can fall asleep to magic. Raiding the armory would give him some guns to use at least, and since the Japanese were so kind to let some senators test fire their weapons he has people who know how to use them.
Whatever you say Boadicea
maintaining perfect hairstyles even after exhausting battle, i don't know what they are using but i'd waste my money on it.
the empire doesn't want anything to do with it's slum citizens anyways, let alone employ them for subterfuge.
Although it would be funny to watch them steal guns and not steal any ammo and can't figure out how to make the magic weapons function
>Genghis Khan/Tamerlane here, let me into your city and you'll be fine if you don't I murder everyone.
>All five of those previous cities got turned to dust, what should we do guys?
>I think we got this. "No"
>everyone's head ends up in the pyramid
I believe average city dweller mcgee would have liked input in not ending up part of the pyramid of heads.
Why is this man using, what it seems, an american assault rifle?
Oh my dick. I hope this spawns doujins
So is that guy with the arrow in his shoulder the first Japanese wounded in combat since the Shibuya incident?
By the way, why didn't they just tear gas the infantry? Was it really necessary to gun down a bunch of bozos with swords? Most of them are just scared motherfuckers doing their jobs. I think you should spare them when you can.
I want to see tanks rolling through the capital, soldiers hiding in alleys as Cobras fly overhead, and JSDF clearing ruined buildings from barricaded legionaries
but no, we only get this small scale bullshit. Hell they didnt even drop their airborne into someplace interesting, just a boring brown field
>I'm surprised they're not Hannibal-after-Cannae levels of scared right now.
Yup. In Roman times, wars like that were civilisation-ending events. Lose, and your cities are razed, your fields burnt, your men get killed, your children sold in slavery and your wives raped.
And I really don't get Zorzal. Follow Tyuule's advice... disaster. Follow Tyuule's advice again... disaster. And so on. I'm surprised he hasn't offed her yet. (But glad. I like her.)
What ticks me is that the Jietai massacres them, and the NotRomans aren't going to a rout when there's already plenty of reasons to get scared shitless, like loud noises/explosions, "iron dragons" flying around hurling death and despair, and a lot of nakama falling dead, armor full of holes and shit.
Depending on the bow and numbers employed a volley could effectively outrange the effective range of a non scoped rifle due to ballistic arc and pure saturation. Yes the JDF could have safely fired from out of range of the bows but that would disallow targeting the comissars specifically.
It was also a wooded area so sightlines were an issue forcing them close as well.
You want to drop paras in fields. Otherwise this happens.
If I recall some people drowned in the D day drop because of they landed in water and having that giant ass chute and gear isn't very conducive to swimming. Big open areas are nice.
Tranqs aren't really a thing. If you stuck random people with some standardized dosage you'd probably end up doing nothing to half of them and giving the other half fatal heart attacks.
The commisars are trying to kill your allies using armed empire soldiers, what more reason do you want?
S1 was alright, but holy shit S2 is a struggle to get through, the opening is shit, it skips more moments, and wastes time.
Getting to that webm related part took two whole episodes where literally NOTHING happened, not even filler, or side stuff, nothing.
They should wheel an H2 through the gate and put a bird into orbit.
The dummy was hung up in remembrance of a paratrooper getting snagged on the church tower in WWII. I don't think there are pictures of the actual trooper himself hanging from the tower.
Were you not paying attention. They already had troops on the walls that cleared out the guards/external archers and dragoon/wyverns. The paras landed pretty far away from the city, the guard reinforcements had enough time to make it back to the gate to try to shut it closed.
I assumed we're talking about the Jade palace battle since we're in-line quoting the bow and arrow issue.
Anyway, the massacre of empire soldiers at the Bassoon prison, if we try to justify it they are at war and they basically assaulted the capital of the enemy faction. Being zerg'd and outnumbered by the empire will give them casualties. So, in short it's to kill or be killed before they get to retreat.
I thought it was really weird that the Japanese said ‘mazui’ several times even though the enemy wasn't a real threat at all.
France is a wonderful place to go on holiday.
When will she eat the beef?
I'm kind of disappointed at the lack of science and investigation in GATE. I would have expected a legion of scientists trying to bend laws around magic and the phenomena that created the gate, and progressively more powerful rocket launches to understand the scale of the planet.
I should have been more clear. I was talking about the many scenes in this episode and earlier where the Japanese are facing people equipped with swords and instead of just incapacitating them with tear gas they just mow them down with machine guns and assault rifles. I mean, seriously? I hope that journalist from the previous episode finds out and causes a scandal.
It's because the author is an ex-JSDF numbskull without imagination. I'd have put up a telescope for example. Let's figure out if this planet is close to ours or not. Or maybe it really is an alternate universe?
So how /k/ommando will Itami get next episode? Will he show off his RENJA skills?
>How to make GATE more interesting
>Eventually JSDF starts falling pray to gorrila warfare tactics
>Savages actually get equipment like guns and shieet
>God bless nippon still beats them in the end up its not a total retard slaughter.
>it's a faggot tries to fit in episode
Most of them don't really know what's going on, are scared shitless of their bosses as much as of the ‘enemy’, only doing their job, and most of them don't pose a real threat.
Meanwhile, Zorzal still hasn't been taken out by a commando strike. Why!?
Guess I have to pick this one up for possible webms too. Shame it's sad Pina instead of angry Pina, but the rags are too good to ignore.
Feeling bad for the savages ;_;
Will we get a season 3? I believe not, sales were decent, but is there hope?
It is explained that they try but for some reason always fail. It turns out that Gods of the Gate side don't want other side's tech in their world. They allow usage of it but not for "research and development" because that would hasten their playground's natural development.
>it's a F/a/ggot get mad at crossboarder episode
Deal with it fag, all our memes and images are better than any of /a/ shits.
B...but they suck in the animu. So fucking badly.
They're fighting one of the easiest wars ever, and they haven't won it in 1-2 weeks (to the point of either forcing the empire to surrender or incapacitating it almost entirely).
Okay, somebody explain to me how those tiny binoculars cover her gigantic animu eyes.
Your shitposting has just hit critical mass /a/non.
It should have been obvious to you by now that Japan has had zero interest in conquest. They actually have been going to great lengths to establish non-violent and diplomatic relations with the Empire. I guarantee you that if conquest had been the goal from the start, that the entire 'war' would have been concluded in about a week.
But that would have been over way too fast and wouldn't have been as interesting as all the political subterfuge.
>They're fighting one of the easiest wars ever, and they haven't won it in 1-2 weeks (to the point of either forcing the empire to surrender or incapacitating it almost entirely).
They are TRYING to keep the Empire intact, you doofus! They have the plan to take over the Capital in 24 hours, if they need to, from day one. They just didn't want to do that because they don't want to rebuild the government from scratch. Peace Treaty was what they wanted, did you watch this anime on fast forward?
>And I really don't get Zorzal. Follow Tyuule's advice... disaster. Follow Tyuule's advice again... disaster. And so on. I'm surprised he hasn't offed her yet. (But glad. I like her.)
At this point he genuinely think she loves him. The guy is an idiot and trusts her completely after she stopped him from getting killed.
I don't know if Gate-world is anything like ours at Roman times, but suppose a gate to our actual Romans would open. Even if you ignore time paradoxes, you don't really want the Empire to fall even if you disagree with their leadership and are formally at war with them, for the very simple reason that the surrounding nations are even worse. Diplomacy, particularly gunboat diplomacy, is the way to go but that takes time, especially if you run into an idiot like Zorzal and refuse to kill him.
>Look how amazing the JDF is
>Slaughtering 3rd world soldiers who don't even know what steel is let alone the basics of modern warfare
>Look at that no casualties and they all fucked a bird woman too!
>BE LIKE THEM AND JOIN THE JIDF
>I don't know if Gate-world is anything like ours at Roman times
Not in the slightest. It's just a big mish mash of pop history.
It fits with the end of Book 3 of novel and it finishes this arc. From the accessible info, there shouldnt be any hard cliffhanger afaik.
The overall story continues in the next book/season of course, there is war to be done.
> It should have been obvious to you by now that Japan has had zero interest in conquest.
They're aiming for the resources of the whole damn area beyond the gate as compensation from everyone they happen to fight.
Yea, they don't want conquest & annexation, but they want puppets they can milk for resources.
Why should they not take the capital where all the nobles are & force the peace treaty through?
Sometimes the JSDF even seems capable of not shooting everyone, it should work.
>the empire doesn't want anything to do with it's slum citizens anyways, let alone employ them for subterfuge.
It is part of the story that demihumans have minor superpowers that are wilfully underused due to social discrimination. That by all right the Empire should have employed them for their racial traits, but instead most just end up on the streets as whores or thugs.
>By the way, why didn't they just tear gas the infantry?
Because the military doesn't use tear gas. What, are you going to ask them to bring robber bullets too? Why the fuck would a military use policing equipment?
>Why should they not take the capital where all the nobles are & force the peace treaty through?
That's not a peace treaty, you can't just call it a peace treaty when it isn't. Once you take over the Capital then it is over, the vassal states would declare independence and the civil war would start.
Holy shit, you really are Journalist-kun, aren't you? In the same post, you complain about them not winning the non-war overnight with shock-and-awe warfare, then complain about the fact that they kill too many enemy soldiers.
Make up your fucking mind dude.
>Gods did it
>it's literally just a playground for gods
>not even technology can destroy them despite quite a few things maiming/destroying gods in-canon
Consider me further disappointed.
>not even technology can destroy them despite quite a few things maiming/destroying gods in-canon
Like what? We didn't even see Gods themselves and even their apostles are good enough for most situations. Even that Gate is open as long as Hardy wishes it and she only keeps it open because it amuses her. Make no mistake Gods are capital G Gods in Gateverse not some Aqua-level bullshit.
You'd think that Zolzal's Three Retard Musketeers would've done something about Bunny Hitler by now.
>'Beefeater' is a stupid fucking name
Oi swear on me mum an 'er majesty da queen oi'll 'unt ew down an smack ew roight in da gobber oi will
True, but officially this isn't a war and the Geneva convention doesn't ban the use of tear gas within a state for e.g. riot control. So, just call whatever the JSDF is doing a police action or something.
The use of tear gas is in this case an objectively better solution. You shouldn't unnecessarily slaughter people just because of a piece of paper.
are you telling me out of all these soldiers non of them thought about throwing fucking spears.
these idiots deserved to get rekt then.
> especially if you run into an idiot like Zorzal and refuse to kill him.
What stops a modern nation (with police or military special forces) from capturing him or almost anyone else they want alive in a night raid or whatever?
> That's not a peace treaty, you can't just call it a peace treaty when it isn't.
Yes, this is a peace treaty. Has been done many times in real history, too.
> Once you take over the Capital then it is over, the vassal states would declare independence and the civil war would start.
As if your people wouldn't be there days to weeks with nice video footage & the carrot-or-stick offer before the messengers on horseback or pigeons or such arrive. If preferable, also a literal "army at the gates" or garrisons on the roads or whatever
If they are stupid enough to issue a call to arms or ignore your demands to do whatever you want them to do, they are obviously going to be fucked in under a week, too.
Your mobility and power to suppress is an order of magnitude better than the empire's.
>Yes, this is a peace treaty. Has been done many times in real history, too.
It seems you are confused. A piece of paper isn't a treaty, willing submission to the rules is. The paper is just a symbol. What you are suggesting is outright government takeover, and that means the government is gone. Yes, it had been done many times, and no, that means you had to build a new government from scratch. The goal is to NOT build a new government, but it seems you don't care about that.
Just call it a semi-automous region and keep the existing puppets in place. Replace anyone who doesn't cooperate with someone you like. The goal is avoiding unnecessary slaughter; since anything can be legally rationalised as long as you're rich enough, you can start rationalising after you're done.
Willingly obeying rules that were written without the current situation in mind that have horrible effects if enforced in the current situation is idiotic, barbaric and autistic.
>What stops a modern nation from capturing him
Literally the fact that they don't want to capture him. Straight up politics. For reasons that seem to elude you, so I'll explain it in the next section.
>If preferable, also a literal "army at the gates" or garrisons on the roads or whatever
Yes, I'm sure that's *exactly* was Japan wants: dedicating hundreds or thousands of personnel and equipment to maintain a surveillance state of their own creation, so that the local population doesn't instigate actual guerilla warfare tactics and riots don't break out at the drop of a hat. I'm sure that's a *much* better way to get the resources they want as opposed to playing nice and getting them literally handed over by the local populace, who is actually quite friendly and amenable since you didn't flatten their capital and force them to capitulate at gunpoint.
Oh wait. It's not. Diplomacy is. Strong-arm tactics never work, cause at the first sign of loosening your grip, the locals will instantly jump your shit.
>Just call it a semi-automous region and keep the existing puppets in place. Replace anyone who doesn't cooperate with someone you like.
Changing the name doesn't change the fact that you just took over the government. Japan DOESN'T WANT TO TAKE OVER THE GOVERNMENT.
They are NOT INTERESTED.
Stop that. You are being a retard. Just because YOU want to take over the government, doesn't mean it makes sense for Japan to change their own mission goals to suit your personal desires.
Can't you read? They don't need to take over the government. They can just call it a semi-autonomous region, tear gas the infantry, get the empire to sign a treaty, leave and milk the empire for resources.
This is objectively less barbaric than gunning defenceless people down.
So did the notRomans slaughter the maids when they took the mansion?
If you don't break the leaders' confidence in their military force, they'll just beef up their guard. A night raid won't necessarily shake them at all because you had to sneak in on them.
So you end up raiding them again to kill them for not cooperating, and kill a beefed up garrison that's expecting it. Or they attack first, to keep the initiative.
"Avoid slaughter" and "make rebellious fools obey" don't go well together.
>If the demigods are scared shitless of modern weapons, how comparable are the gods?
They're similar but one has plot armor and the other doesn't.
We'll see how BS they get when Hardy finally appears.
