The General seems like a decent guy, I've never seen novelfags complain (only manga fags, and that mostly subjective design bitching), and it's a solid 7/10 anime with NIPPON FUCK YEAH moments. Edgelords gotta edge, though.
I bet she was a huge slut in her younger years.
>why the fuck didn't they just send the apaches in and light up the imperial palace?
they did in the novels and they did kill the imp shits that are on the choke points like the bridge
I was gonna say something else but I think >>138855127 is right.
Haven't been in any GATE threads and I'm only on ep. 18 right now, but how popular are each of the girls here in comparison to each other?
I like kuribayashi more than itami's fantasy harem. But Rory is second and Sherry is third.
does this happen in the LN? feels like a dozen riflemen should be more than enough to handle few hundred cavalry.
I know, shit wording on my part.
No anon, I just think she's clever and cute. No other reason, I assure you.
I've been wondering about those hand signals. Did they do their research or did they just make shit up?
>Did this episode mean that Sherry's parents died for nothing?
They were going to die no matter what. Nothing they could have done to stop it. The only one who could have stopped it was the one who started it, the bunny queen.
Evil Dude was explicitly asking them to come along quietly before they went with "nah, lets burn this place down." It's been explicitly said that those who did not resist were still alive. Therefore, if they did not resist, they would still be alive.
To which their honest answer was "fuck if we know." Those two didn't decide where to go until after they were out. And again, if they didn't put up a fight, they would apparently be merely imprisoned. The chubby lady still had all of her jewelry, even.
Our only word on whether that's true is "those who resisted died, those who didn't were imprisoned" which argues against that assumption.
Also, bear in mind that they never should have made it to the Jade Palace in the first place, but Rabbitsputin ran interference for them against a backstabbing inn owner.
Basically, because of Sherry, this happened
>So does kugen have beefeater and bozes on his dick now? I wish I could have an order of female only knights to protect me and for fondling.
Bozes is already riding Tomita, Itami knows this and basically refuse to reprimand him, thats why Kuri walks all over him
>Being captain of the knights
>Being a diplomat
>Acting strong-willed and understands current situations.
What happened to Pina? She gets thrown into jail with shitty clothing and she starts acting like child. She wasn't being tortured or raped. Did the director decide to make her go full retard in order to create tension for the viewers?
Episode 5 or 6, Bozes about to attempt to give away her valuable noble ass to Itami (who is 'small' in terms of not being a noble in any way) so he won't tell his superiors about how he was treated, because they don't yet get that the Japanese don't give a fuck.
>That's because Kuri wanted to ride Tomita first, not because of some devotion to discipline.
I mean Kuri walks all over Itami despite being superior, ignoring orders and protocol, charging into the enemies, despite orders. Because she knows Itami wont even entertain the idea of putting her on the brig at least.
I mean she even kicked Itami in the first season.
>She wasn't being tortured or raped.
>What happened to Pina? She gets thrown into jail with shitty clothing and she starts acting like child. She wasn't being tortured or raped. Did the director decide to make her go full retard in order to create tension for the viewers?
The director of this show, or the script writer, screwed up.
Quite simply, it is customary for important people to be put under house arrest, or otherwise be put in relatively benign surroundings, instead of being treated like a commoner in a dungeon. Dungeon treatment is reserved for when they are stripped of their rank and are about to be killed. Pina was not considered a traitor and as such in both the manga and the novels, was merely not allowed to leave her home. It was important that Nobles and Royals are treated as superior people, even when under investigation. That's how social order and class system is maintained.
Someone in the anime studio screwed up, and messed up this important detail.
In fact, one of the reasons the nobles who were released from Japan was ANGRY and wanted to have revenge on Japan, was that they were incarcerated in the same place as commoners and even orcs, forced to live and eat with the lower classes.
No one ever wants lewds with Kurokawa.
They aren't on. It's canon that the Rose Knights can't fuck dudes until they get politically married, so they lez out to satisfy their sexual urges. Bozes is the closest to Pina politically and in terms of nobility, so they regularly scissor each other.
>is the manga even up to that part? isn't the current chapter still stuck in the previous arc
The novels showed Pina under house arrest, and even had an illustration drawn. I expect the manga to do the same.
>that's not what i asked and what you said earlier. the manga isn't there yet. so it didn't show anything on the matter
The manga showed that the Empire doesn't treat Nobles like commoners, even under arrest, so the anime got it wrong there too.
What steps would you take as Emperor to drive the Japanese to the negotiating table on your own terms?
Ignore obvious idiots. Political marriages are how it works for nobility, both in history and in GATEworld. Love marriages occur of course, but that's viewed as a waste by family at best.
What are you talking about? All the nobility we saw come out of the the prison still had their nice clothes and jewelry.
Someone spoil me. What is Tyuule's plan? Is it to destroy the Empire from within by giving Chad bad advice? As some sort of revenge? Because it's working really well.
>What are you talking about? All the nobility we saw come out of the the prison still had their nice clothes and jewelry.
The manga specifically had the Nobles saying they were angry at being treated the same as the common soldiers, and they directly said this was why they are agreeing to help fight in the war.
>What is Tyuule's plan?
You seriously can't just deduce it from watching the show?
She got Chad to trust her by sucking his dick and has been feeding him shitty advice for a long time, so she can watch him and his precious empire fall as retribution for destroying her warrior bunny tribe. I'm pretty sure she outright stated this at least once.
>I really don't get why he's going to her for advice instead of one of his war generals. She didn't look that great in the sack
He thought she was in love with him. She fakes a great orgasm.
Because she has such a low opinion of him. The others she likes, or will pity fuck, but the only reason she even occasionally follows his orders is because he outranks her. He's an otaku despite his age, and so she rejects him. And he's beta enough to put up with it.
Thankfully, oneesan Kurokawa is there to take good care of him.
I swear to god, that is the third time I've wanted to use an emoticon this thread. What is wrong with me?
mostly because of the batteries.
you need room for day and night scopes each out to about 10km on top of the actual pulsed laser being tracked by the munition. the night scope and the laser will need space devoted to cooling.
modern systems will also squeeze a bunch of computing in there to handle the handoff of targetting data to the dudes sending munitions, over various comm data links with size constraints from other applications.
they are still man-portable for a given mission duration, weight being the price for battery life. it helps that the spotting hardware and the designating laser are split up like that, easier to handle both than one more integrated but bulkier and less tolerant of future imaging developments.
Why are they using shit-tier princess carry and piggyback method instead of the superior fireman's carry?
You can get smaller but you lose datalink, native GPS and effective range due to loss of the night scope,. SOFLAM can hook up to external datalinks and you can strap a starlight scope to it but that's more stuff to carry and power separately. Also, there's the non-trivial operator requirement as you decrease effective range.
This many planes would have taken months of work to assemble
Especially since even wingless, the fuselage wouldn't fit through the Gate
She's just tsundere for him. She knows deep inside that she wants his RENJA/Special Forces dick.
Was there even really a need for paratroopers?
Feels like they could have gotten the same job done for far less cost and effort, with less chance of bad weather fucking everything up, and giving the enemy less advance warning before boots arrive on the ground, if they had used helicopters to insert their troops.
Did they just decide that fighting against savages with bows and arrows where they pretty much dictate the terms of combat every time was an opportune time to fuck around and do a bunch of expensive shit that they wouldn't get to do on earth?
>Did they just decide that fighting against savages with bows and arrows where they pretty much dictate the terms of combat every time was an opportune time to fuck around and do a bunch of expensive shit that they wouldn't get to do on earth?
We do that in the Middle East all the time, so why not?
>thanks for the good stuff you americans
>yeah we'll show those russians how it's done and we will give them back
So after half a year of seeing GATE threads, I finally caved and decided to try the manga. The manga has had surprisingly good pacing with even the stupid onsen scene having a part in the story, and the military vehicles and weapons look fucking great. The fantasy parts are great as well, and the demihuman designs range from "fucking awesome" to "muh dick", and I really wish they would have just focused on the modern military juxtaposed to the fantasy setting, rather than trying to shoehorn half assed propoganda and half remembered international politics in. I'm on chapter 52 now, and I just don't think I can keep going.
>mangaka has no fucking idea how international politics works
>for some reason he thinks Japan wouldn't just imperialize the whole Special Region the moment the enormous disparity in military ability was seen
>this page, and it's whole section
>America, Russia, and China straight giving up on controlling the Special Region
>America didn't at least force some "advisers" into the Special Region from the get go
>the military letting a dude go AWOL with some locals with no serious consequences
>none of the Japanese soldiers frequent the lusty, practically begging demihuman prostitutes in the capital
>a midget woman with just a bayonet on her rifle fought and killed several grown men with shields and swords that trained with them since childhood
Was that it? I was under the impression her room was being flooded or something from that one shot of the wall leaking water or something.
yes I'm an anime-only casul pls no bully
>feels like a dozen riflemen should be more than enough to handle few hundred cavalry.
Depends how far they were, which was not very, for all intents they should've gotten run over by a cav charge.
Chill out, anon. You already know this show was written by a far-righted national extremist JSDF reservist (probably a fascist sympathizer too, considering the way he thought about his country), right? I bet he originally wrote this stuff a way to mentally masturbate for himself and his buddies, then it became popular and got an anime adaption, since the Japs agreed with his view, too.
>a midget woman with just a bayonet on her rifle fought and killed several grown men with shields and swords that trained with them since childhood
Yeah this shit triggered me, she wasn't just fighting any soldiers she was fighting the equivalent of Roman palatinae in close quarters with what amounts to a VERY short spear. I don't expect them to survive rifle fire (but you'd expect them to start throwing down shields, scattering or approaching zig-zag after the first few shots made them realize that whatever the black magic rod is it ignores shields and armor and is very goddamn fast), but she should've gotten taken the fuck apart against those guys in close quarters.
also where the fuck are their javelins and slingers? ancient empires weren't made of nothing but heavy cav and heavy infantry
They didn't bring much of anything with them. They also had no air support. It seems like they want to hammer home the idea that JSDF is forced to do things on the cheap because bureaucratic bullshit.
And cavalry charges clearly weren't a concern, otherwise they would climb up the trees first before ambushing.
There were a fuckton of them though, and they demonstrated competency that would've made Roman velites (aka "my job is to throw a javelin and run before I get mowed down by enemies") laugh at them.
The cav was way too slow in this episode.
Yes, and the first few took her on one at a time. When they realised their mistake and got in formation, she fucked them up.
I'm not saying it's realistic, but they were clearly overconfident at first.
Oh you meant the cav charging the chopper? Its more like the horsemen they shot down would impede the rest of the horsemen, but they didn't bother to animate that. All the horsemen were also heavy cavalry.
Don't underestimate Mad Dog Kuribayashi.
Well of course I know that, it's just a shame because there are a lot of parts of the manga (and presumably the anime too, I haven't watched it) that are actually really good. Like I said, the pacing especially is excellent because the series has managed more plot development and characterization in fifty odd chapters than most series manage in twice that many chapters even in other LN adaptations. I think the BS neofascist muh nippon wankery is so annoying to me because the series had the opportunity to be a truly great one, and instead devolved into said wankery.
Right? These guys were the fucking cream of the crop and heavily trained and armored for close combat, yet they were complete buffoons that let this tiny ass woman walk right up past their guard and cut their throat. I could have got her killing one, barely, before opening up with her rifle, but for some reason she doesn't even start off with shooting. She actively engages multiple men in close combat before using her rifle for actually shooting. It made no god damn sense to eliminate the one advantage a small, weaker woman would have over a group of heavily armed men. I don't mind fantasy like women being able to beat men in close combat (like Rory fucking three spec ops teams by herself), but if you're trying to push a "realistic" scenario in terms of the combat abilities of the soldiers, having something so unbelievable really ruins the suspension of disbelief.
Yeah, I just remembered it came from an LN, my bad.
Pretty much this
Rory is magic, so it makes sense for her to fuck normal people up, but Kuri is just a well-trained normal person
Her fucking up other well-trained normal people when she should be at a massive disadvantage is ridiculous
>one at a time
And she should have been massacred in close combat, a few years of training with melee as a secondary concern does not make you superior to an ancient soldier who did nothing but melee with superior melee equipment and probably has been practicing for way longer, the Empire's everyone was hilariously incompetent and it makes no sense.
>got in formation
Again makes no sense, you don't use shieldwalls against a single opponent, formation fighting is for taking on enemy formations especially in the face of missile fire - which she hadn't demonstrated.
It has nothing to do with them being fuckhuge dudes and her being a girl - it has everything to do with them specifically being chosen for their ability in close quarters combat while no soldier today (except for some specialists, I guess?) could possibly 'main' close combat. Imagine a generic 'modern' soldier, with their modern armor and a combat knife, trying to fight something like a zweihander in plate, it's almost automatic GG tier.
>Imagine a generic 'modern' soldier, with their modern armor and a combat knife, trying to fight something like a zweihander in plate, it's almost automatic GG tier.
Do you even YAMATO DAMASHII? That combat knife is folded a thousand times, anon. It's forged with the souls of a thousand noble samurai. It could cut through that sword like it was made of butter. Not to mention the fact that the ki blast coming from the great and honorabu JSDF infantryman is already capable of making mere mortals cower in terror.
Those soldiers were well trained with holding a wall shield and some sword swinging techniques. She is trained in advanced CQC using multiple weapons with techniques which were passed down from trainers who were originally sent to the US to learn said techniques. Shes also a lot faster and mobile than a big guy in plated armor.
I want Kuribayashi to beat me up
Dude's american, working with the northern mujahideen, fighting them talibs.
It's normal for SOF people to sport long beard in afghanistan because it helps them blend better with the locals and get the locals' respect
Someone called a royal guardsman would be well trained in dealing with single or small groups of combatants inside a structure like a castle
Also, as an aside, the armor they're wearing isn't all that heavy or restrictive
Modern firefighters carry more weight with them than a fully geared knight ever did
>It has nothing to do with them being fuckhuge dudes and her being a girl - it has everything to do with them specifically being chosen for their ability in close quarters combat while no soldier today (except for some specialists, I guess?) could possibly 'main' close combat.

Well, my focus wasn't really that she was a woman, but her being a woman definitely has something to do with it. At her size, there's no way she could compare to larger man, regardless of if she had the same training and equipment as they did. That's just straight up biological differences. When you add in the equipment and disparity in training though, it becomes downright comical, especially since she decided to eliminate the advantage of her firearm by closing the distance to hand to hand combat.
And she'd still get her shit chopped up. Sorry dude, there's no way you can still this to where Kuri could believably win.
A 'badge' in CQC proficiency today means, at best, she was on par with those guys, who had better armor and more importantly a better weapon. Bayonets are horrendously shit close quarters weapons that are only used because actually carrying a sword around is worthless today.
Remember these people do nothing BUT train in CQC and would've been doing so for many years if they're trusted with guarding the crown prince, I'd say that a simple badge in CQC shouldn't mean shit to them but I'll pretend it means she's equal, equipment is still a massive issue and no she's not 'more mobile', those guys were in a breastplate / gauntlet combo and cone helm and would've been trained to make the most of it. None of them even used their shields - surprise surprise, shields excel at blocking stabbing motions and are very good at obstructing vision and bashing, both fundamental ancient combat strategies.
>they were trained with holding a shield wall
Are they peasant levies or something? Those are palace guard, they have to be the best of the best. The idea that they could be slaughtered wholesale by someone with a HORRIBLE CQC weapon is laughable.
>Those are palace guard
We don't know that. The Imperial Guards are the romans in black armor, for all we know these guys could just be rich noble kids who enjoy raping bunny girls too and didn't have to actually train that hard.
I dunno, but in that case it's a matter of bad writing because the crown prince wouldn't just be walking about in a capital receiving a formal envoy from a nation you're at war with without some form of rudimentary guard.
also why the hell didn't the romans in black armor spread out, if their armor and shields are useless and getting hit means death then spreading out and charging in loose formation is the answer
They should know this, Romans were up against artillery before
Remembered wrong AND forgot pic I feel like an idiot
Like you know, the enemy is using something that's basically a rapid-fire polybolos, why the hell would you stand in a tight group?
>receiving a formal envoy from a nation you're at war with
He didn't meet the Japanese until the earthquake, and the inside of the palace should have been safe.
His raid at Piña's party was supposed to only involve senators.
But yes, the massacre is Japan stronk wankery.
I'm not sure. I just finished episode one, and am partway through episode two since I caught up on the manga, and what the fuck did they do?
>unnecessary """emotional""" scenes with some brat at the gate opening
>adding in redundant LOOK HOW OTAKU I AM scenes for the MC (as if him being obsessed with doujinshi wasn't enough of a clue?)
>the main counteroffensive at the beginning that I was so excited to see animated is mostly still screen pans
>it's mostly still screen pans of the fucking Empire forces, not even the military equipment
I can only imagine how much worse it's going to get. I'll bet money all the scenes I really wanted to see animated (the dragons getting fucked by the yellow nip cock, rory fucking those spec ops teams, etc.) will probably get the same treatment. What a waste.
Man I hate the incompetency of not!romans, it'd be cool if they were actually competent and simply out-teched by about five civ eras instead of levy-tier incompetent extant only to show how kooru nippon is.
Leverage magical research and information as bargaining chips, arrange my empire like North Korea such that my word is god and stepping down or succession would result in a violent power struggle as well as causing every citizen fighting the Japanese to the death in my name.
Well, first off I'd figure out how to get my hands on their weaponry, we only need to take a few squads out since they move in isolated packs.
Then have my top mages try and figure out what's going on in that stuff.
Cut off their supplies by fucking up the gate, they're near a forest or something so we can build a ballista or something there, after the supplies are fucked we burn everything nearby to the ground. Basically you're dealing with an expedition, the first step is to cut off their supply route since as a military force they have no way of actually feeding themselves besides foraging.
Yeah, I feel the same. After the first open engagement, an Empire with as much military experience as they are insinuated to have had would change tactics, even if their previous ones had worked well in the past. It would be a lot more interesting to see the (not)Romans making the best use of their complete technological disparity by using different tactics. Ambushes in tight quarters to eliminate the range advantage, pit traps on the roads to get the vehicles the Japs use, artillery (where the hell are the trebuchets and the like?) to damage and destroy the lighter vehicles and immobilize the heavier ones, spreading out formations to make the japs use more ammunition and to minimize collateral damage from explosions, ditching most armor and shields since they are useless against firearms, etc. I know the series is meant to just be nip wanking, but it would be more effective nip wanking if it wasn't Japan genociding a bunch of functional retards with swords.
>Well, first off I'd figure out how to get my hands on their weaponry, we only need to take a few squads out since they move in isolated packs.
While not a bad idea, harder to do than say
>Then have my top mages try and figure out what's going on in that stuff.
>Cut off their supplies by fucking up the gate, they're near a forest or something...
Ancient siege weapons didn't have enough range for that. There is a wide protected area around the gate.
Oh please, at least Michael Bay military porn is sexy and fun and puts America up against worthy foes like the Japanese Empire and the Decepticons. This is just downright ridiculous.
>trainers who were originally sent to the US to learn said techniques
Shoulda gone to UK; get those skills straight from the source rather than some watered down bastardization from a bunch of hacks who were too lazy/stupid to come up with it themselves.
>ambushes in tight quarters
This should've happened already, it's one of the most basic tactics of the ancient world.
They had brimstone pits back in the ancient world, would've basically exploded trucks.
Romans didn't have those, but they had scorpios and this nifty thing called a polybolos which was basically a bolt-action ballista.
>wide protected area
How wide though? I know that the ballista-like stone throwers had a range of like 700 meters or something. Also, they could probably use something like fire pots to cause some havoc.
I'd probably hire some ''''refugees'''' to set fire to a few of their camps, use some of their own weapons against them in the panic, and in the confusion move in and take out the gate.
Your average grunt isn't known to be a bright fella, thus the reason why recruitment centres would happily accept dropouts, but that is beside the point.
Things is, commanders rarely respond to changing military threats, at least, not fast enough. In civil war, for example, battles was still conducted in tight line formation,with guys standing and shooting each other and waiting to be shoot at, despite advances in contemporary weaponry (rifled muskets, breech-loading cannons, repeating carbines/pistols and even gatling gun). Most of the time, it's not about the competency of the guys at front line, but the commanders at the back
Man honestly fuck their cheating bullshit.
What's the limit of a mage's power?
I'd lay them under siege (not that it means anything) as a strategy to take their attention away from my sappers underground.
>This should've happened already, it's one of the most basic tactics of the ancient world.
Even fucking chimps use this tactic to get other chimps. The author can't really expect me to think that nobody thought to ambush the japs in the city alleys at least.
>They had brimstone pits back in the ancient world, would've basically exploded trucks.
Even better. I figured pit traps were just an easy way to immobilize a vehicle on top of fucking up an entire convoy and rendering a road useless for a couple of days, but making them explode is even better. But I was operating off the assumption that the Empire could only handle the most basic of tactics, and I figured "digging a hole and covering it with stuff" was simple enough for their leadership to think of. Even just pushing some boulders in the road would slow down the convoy severely if the road was the only passable route.
>Romans didn't have those, but they had scorpios and this nifty thing called a polybolos which was basically a bolt-action ballista.
Sorry, I honestly don't know a ton about ancient warfare, but I figured the Totally-Not-Romans would have some sort of siege weapons they could use or modify to at least put up a fight.
This turn of events is quite silly. Its pretty obvious the Empire lost its best legions on the invasion and the post-invasion attempt to retake the hill. JSDF is wiping out conscripts and city guard at this point.
Well in their defence, Pakistan do havs larger military than Japan, and unlike Japan, they have nukes.
They can even shit on the empire with nothing more than their old G3 rifle and M113 APC
What's wrong with M113? It's not like the japs themselves brought anything fancy across the gate.
>I honestly don't know a ton about ancient warfare
>but I figured the Totally-Not-Romans would have some sort of siege weapons they could use or modify to at least put up a fight.
Ancient siege weapons don't have the range for a surprise attack, so they'd have to be build up or moved close enough to their target, which would give Japan all the time in the world to use their superior ranged weapons to wipe them out before they even get in firing range.
That's funny, while on the toilet earlier I was thinking that your average no-name African warlord with a few hundred fighters and some defunct Soviet surplus gear could probably take over the Empire with minimum casualties. They're that incompetent.
I never claimed to be a military buff, but even a pleb like me can use common sense to think of ways to at least slow down a technologically superior foe.
>Ancient siege weapons don't have the range for a surprise attack, so they'd have to be build up or moved close enough to their target, which would give Japan all the time in the world to use their superior ranged weapons to wipe them out before they even get in firing range.
Fair enough. I still think things like pit traps and close quarters ambushes would work well though. The Empire wouldn't win, but it would beat them uselessly flopping around like they are.
Exactly my point
>Ancient siege weapons don't have the range for a surprise attack, so they'd have to be build up or moved close enough to their target, which would give Japan all the time in the world to use their superior ranged weapons to wipe them out before they even get in firing range.
Well, not on an open field but smaller versions could presumably be set up in some hidden location (underbrush or something) to wreck some havoc
The way to fight against an unstoppable powerful army is to slowly hack at them and wear them down.
The REAL question is why the Empra decided to attack first without getting info on their military forces, since the civilian-spam obviously wasn't their military and a basic amount of common sense should've told them that a nation this (relative to the Empire) prosperous and this architecturally capable could not possibly have a weak military.
How much knowledge of the Japanese do I have?
In any case, you would know the JSDF are trying to protect civilians. Use guerrilla warfare, hide your soldiers among the civilian population. You need to have the civilians on your side too, which might be difficult given how much of dicks the empire has supposedly been.
You would also have to somehow close or reduce the gap that JSDF has as a result of possessing vastly superior technology, either by stealing their weapons somehow and examining how they work or use alternatives like magic, preferably both. Magic is a bit iffy since it's not clear how good it is, but it could be enough to gain a fighting chance against the common infantry.
Yeah, beyond the immediate ridiculousness of American spec ops being outdone by Japanese, his wording does sound super generic.
Presumably it's because every position of leadership in the Empire is occupied by an idiot with the critical thinking skills of a three year old. There's literally no other explanation for that magnitude of lack of forethought and analysis.
Because the Empire leadership was created to be stupid on purpose, they killing civilians only is clearly a move from the author to make readers sympathize with the Japan side and justify any of JSDF's massacre on the Empire people later on, just like in this episode.
See, they should've made this guy the emperor.
>The Augustan History claims that he also married a man named Zoticus, an athlete from Smyrna, in a public ceremony at Rome. Cassius Dio reported that Elagabalus would paint his eyes, epilate his hair and wear wigs before prostituting himself in taverns, brothels, and even in the imperial palace:
>Finally, he set aside a room in the palace and there committed his indecencies, always standing nude at the door of the room, as the harlots do, and shaking the curtain which hung from gold rings, while in a soft and melting voice he solicited the passers-by. There were, of course, men who had been specially instructed to play their part. For, as in other matters, so in this business, too, he had numerous agents who sought out those who could best please him by their foulness. He would collect money from his patrons and give himself airs over his gains; he would also dispute with his associates in this shameful occupation, claiming that he had more lovers than they and took in more money.
>Herodian commented that Elagabalus enhanced his natural good looks by the regular application of cosmetics. He was described as having been "delighted to be called the mistress, the wife, the queen of Hierocles" and was reported to have offered vast sums of money to any physician who could equip him with female genitalia.
Having a bishonen trap fuccboi as the emperor would've been glorious.
I know it's a reference to alcohol, but still.
First off I would search contact with them to find out what the fuck they want, what they have to offer. etc.
If I would gain better intel I could start making infiltration plans like a soldier exchange programm under the anme of cultural understanding or some shit.
If we gain entrence to Japan itself and other nations then the real intrigue shit would start
What is the GROOOOMIN'STANDARD in the JGSDF? Anime Itami's stub is triggering me.
Also I miss the GK discussions after episode 2 and the anime opening singing.
21st century tech would win sure, but the armed conflicts are low tension because there's no worry about anything worse than taking an arrow to the shoulder.
Empire has mages, and strength of numbers. The battles would be more entertaining if the locals could at least get in a decent blow once in a while.
The japs are too stronk and overpowered, outsmarted, and outmaneuvered the three most powerful nations on the planet. If the author had any intention of having other countries interrupt the jap wank fest then they would have done so by now.
I have a question
Why does everyone call Diavolo a 'Coward'?
He's like the one smart person in all of the Empire. He fucking knew his days were numbered when his brother took the throne, so he gtfo.
PINA is the real coward idiot for knowing that her brother was insane but staying there anyway. Can you imagine what Zorzal would have done to Diavolo if he knew he was alive? I'm sure death would have been the least of his problems if Zorzal found that there was another possible heir to the throne wandering about. All Pina has to worry about is being stuck in a box.
Diavolo did nothing wrong and is actually a very intelligent tactician.
To us, we know even from in-comic that they wanted to move a billion people there.
He didn't, to him they were just another country that was much bigger than Japan that had a lot of terrifying military equipment.
When your options are to run from Empire the rest of your life or team up to take back your empire, he made the best decision.
this episode had hardly any lelei, and was thus, ipso facto, a bad episode
Ideally the smart thing to do would be to go back and ask help from the JSDF because they already had a presence there and all the military hardware he would ever want.
Why he decided to solicit people who weren't even on his planet is beyond me.
Here's some lelei
Why is he so badass
>I learned about the Beefeeters in the Blake and Mortimers comics
>Everyone complaining about questionable military and real life combat accuracy
And no one mentions how this shit completely devolved into even more Harem shit? I really do not want to sit through another fucking anime about some "Average Japanese Male" and his posse of horny sluts who he is afraid to touch, but still treats like children (and also act like children).
FUCK every fucking woman in this show devolves into tears at the first sign of trouble until the big stronk nipponu soldier comes to their rescue.
>you move your forces to within ten miles of the enemy camp.
ridiculously large amounts of artillery blast your well formed legions to smithereens well before you even see the enemy stronghold.
this is of course soon followed up by military aircraft that your soldiers never even conceived possible, armed with multiple machine guns, begin slaughtering any groups coherent enough to still function through the artillery barrage.
these are soon followed by massive horseless chariots which are completely immune to any weapon you can possibly field and archers armed with weapons whose accuracy and lethality belittles any legends you may have on the concept. any man still willing to fight upon seeing these people is either insane or a fracking hero.
seriously the fortication seen in >>138872468
is just a formality. you won't even be able to keep a force on the field long enough to field sappers.
oh, also any mage competent enough to function through all that and still be a threat will be blasted by missiles from the aforementioned gunships (helicoptors).
>And no one mentions how this shit completely devolved into even more Harem shit
I saw that coming from a mile away the moment they introduced mostly women as main characters. At the onsen I thought they would actually surprise me by having MC and Rory actually bang in her bloodlust induced horniness, but they predictably made MC sperg out like the beta fag he is. The series would have shot up a couple of points if they had actually followed through instead of doing more autist blueballing BS, but I guess I shouldn't be shocked about that anymore. I agree that it's annoying, but there are plenty of good non harem anime out there. There are virtually no good /k/ or modern international politics anime out there, so I think a lot of people, including myself, are more upset by that than the harem.
>FUCK every fucking woman in this show devolves into tears at the first sign of trouble until the big stronk nipponu soldier comes to their rescue
Yet the stronk grorious nipponjin samurai are still too pussy to bang the lusty, fertile sluts that throw themselves at them crotch first.
Doesn't that only happen because she made a contract with MC, and she took the damage that would have killed his dumbass while fighting the dragon? I feel like with her it's less "save me, you strong yellow man" and more of a give and take partnership. She saved his life, now he saves her from the rape god.
Yeah wait, what is that about? She gets hurt because she's taking damage for Itami, but he was just tossed around a bit? Was he taking more damage than anyone else who survived down there? Isn't Rory supposed to be tougher than him? This is more petty shit, though. A better example of Rory not always being Stronk is when they go underground in the subway in Japan. What is the deal with patting girls heads, anyway?
She also gets completely eaten and nearly ruined by a minotaur in the manga.
For all the wankery over her power, she's pretty low on the totem pole. The attack helicopters that killed the dragon whelps are higher than she is power-wise.
The anime skims over it but where he was standing is the exact place that a bunch of his dark elf buddies got eviscerated clean in half. He wakes up next to the half-corpse of one of them.
If it weren't for Rory, that would have been him.
So is every other demigod. Yet it's been proven they can be destroyed in some fashion where they won't regenerate.
Rory's worry for instance was that, while being digested by the minotaur, she would lose her mind from the process. So clearly there are other ways to hurt demigods than just physically.
Her mind probably wouldn't survive, no.
Yes, it would have basically turned her into a different person or been the end of her.
So Rory, and maybe other demigods; low on the totem pole.
The blue bitch was worrying over being torn into pieces and buried far away from one another so she couldn't regenerate.
>Give Roman stolen gun.
>Romans come back with Latin rifles.
Reminder that Tuka can get a tan, but she'll never be a dark elf.
>wait until you see how the female characters are portrayed
>notice also not a single drop of blood is spilled at all, this shit's bad like a Marvel Disney movie
I would fucking love a show that followed the adventures of an Imperial X-Com unit trying to take apart the Japanese shit and learning how it works to make their own cobbled-together solutions.
>Their first attempt at flying machines makes something made of nothing but blades (because that's how it lifts, right?) and moves slower than a fast horse.
>They still manage to shoot down a Chinook with it
That might cause a trauma but it wouldn't kill her.
Being torn apart and de-localized so much you can't regenerate however is a common concern for immortals, but that still won't kill her, just be a pretty shitty situation to be in, possibly for a very long time, until someone puts her back together.
>That might cause a trauma but it wouldn't kill her.
>That sort of thing would kill me mentally
She wouldn't even be the same person after it happened. It would be like saying that insane patient at the crazy house is still just as capable as he was before he went in.
It would have been the end for her as we know her. Fortunately big-dick Itami was there to save the day through dumb shonen protagonist luck.
They could still probably mash together the beginning concepts of a musket using it. Maybe even better than a musket if they have explosion magic to work with.
Once you get legionaries as a viable option, then you can work on removing the heavy hitters of their forces.
Again, GATE: X-com edition, work on it A1 you cheap hacks.
/a/, what would YOU change to make GATE good?
You mean if I could change it from the start, or if I could make changes now to try to salvage it? If the former:
>no harem/have more main male characters around MC
>Make MC less of a mushy beta self-insert. He's in fucking recon, he can't be that much of a pussy
>have MC actually fuck Rory in the onsen, that pissed me off so much
>Have US/NATO forces directly involved in the subjugation of the Special Region, with the Japs being relegated to a more believable position of support
>no peace talks with the kingdom, just use the overwhelming military force and make them capitulate to your desires
That's just the beginning.
>tone down the absurd nationalism (at least in the sense of not making Japan seem so invincible [i.e. the scene where Japanese soldiers fuck up American, Russian, and Chinese spec ops])
>make the leadership of the Empire a bit less mind-numbingly incompetent (Zolzal just...started the war right back up? Did he not hear how utterly smashed the Empire's boys got at Arnus? What the fuck.)
>show more of the initial counter-offensive combat (I was so pissed that they just showed black screens with stats)
>tone down the harem shit (why Itami didn't fuck Rory, I will never understand)
>show some fucking Japs getting killed FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I don't care if only TWO of them die just please stop making them so invulnerable. Probability dictates that some imperial schmuck should have gotten lucky by now)
>why the fuck has the Empire not tried to use magic, one of the few things available to them and not the JSDF (at least give me an explanation)
>TONE DOWN THE FUCKING NATIONALISM
>don't make the media such outright consistent objective assholes (surely there's at least one news team that supports this shit)
On a side note, I hope this shit with Sugawara and the loli princess or whatever is going somewhere. I know they won't have the balls to go through with it so I don't know why I feel any optimism.
These are all good, especially making the Empire less retarded.
I love that
>cut back harem
as in no harem at all? or actually have Itami or other characters actual relationships
and sexwith the grills?
this has been on my mind, if I wanted NIPPON STRONK series would focus on 3rd recon team as MCs and the rest would be a joint command
while weak to artillery I would change it to the fact that they could overrun the gate by sheer numbers but actually deter them of doing that by plot
>as in no harem at all? or actually have Itami or other characters actual relationships and sex with the grills
Either A) have Itami bang Rory since she's the most into him and it's painful watching her pine, and sideline the other romances, or B) straight up replace some of the main girls with men. The two elves are straight up useless in all capacities, and serve literally no purpose aside from redundant fap bait. Contrast that with Rory, who is a powerful demigod, and Leilei, who is a cool headed, inventive, and successful sorcerer.
Have the other military guy bang Persia, he's earned it. I would prefer if the harem was straight up removed, but at the very least it should be toned down and shouldn't get in the way of the actual story like it has.
>this has been on my mind, if I wanted NIPPON STRONK series would focus on 3rd recon team as MCs and the rest would be a joint command
This would have been the most believable route. Author can still have some nippon stronk masturbatory fantasies of third recon fucking the shit up of the blundering Empire goons, and the rest of us don't have to constantly roll our eyes at the ridiculous nationalism and neofascist BS.
cut the beta otaku weeb shit right out, him being a slacker who gets shit done when motivated is enough to work with
with a NATO command, keep it to a minimum, and focus on, righting any wrongs of abuse by the green men on the population, improving the peoples lot in life, joint adventures between recon team and locals (like killing the fire drake), undermining the empire's power while changing it's views (like Pina), and recounts of the recon team and others while interacting with the locals, like chef dude, or Kurokawa
Everyone is saying that they would want to cut back the cartoonish villains and the politics and the jingoism.
I think the key to Gate is to make it even MORE extreme.
I want Japan to be portrayed as a beacon of light in a grim and dark future of psychopaths and demons. I want all the American politicians to be constantly spouting "DAMN SLOPES WE SHOULD HAVE USED THREE BOMBS" while at the podium, slamming his hand-crafted statue of Matthew Perry onto his desk and drinking a six-pack of bud light.
I want the Chinese emissaries to be constantly smiling while gladly spouting how they want to rid the world of "FILTH NANKING DOGS", constantly spitting and declaring that Japan as a nation will be dead within the decade.
Then the Empire. I want the empire to be a stand-in for Western civilization. I want all the politicians of the Empire to be uncanny resemblances to caricatures throughout history. The head of the hawks of the senate would look just like MacArthur. The speaker of the senate would be John Wayne. And the Emperor? He'll be played by none other than Harry Truman himself!
But there's our shining hero of Justice, Itami. I want Itami to be the size of two average americans. He'll have a rising sun Tattooed on both of his pecs, and the entirety of his back will be a tiger tattoo. Which glows when he gets angry and burns straight through his clothes. His dick will be so long that the girls (there are twice the number of harem members now) will constantly complain about it when they're in tight spaces with him like inside the cabin of the Humvee. His teeth will be made of diamonds and he will be nothing short of a guru of Japanese media, culture, and language.
When Pina sees him, She will immediately rip off her clothes and offer to be his slave.
This is what I think would save Gate. Don't tone down the ham, revel in it. And accept that this is how it should be.
They already made that anime.
we can squeeze zhose into smartphones. hell, we can squeeze IR camera into smartphones.
Sure, the battlefield has tougher requirements, but does that really explain the massive size difference?
I don't get why people are pissed at the "Itami not fucking Rory" thing. He clearly was about to (he put his hands on her ass) if not for the phone call interrupting them. Plus, hearing "there's 3 different spec ops teams heading your way trying to kill you" would probably kill anyone's boner.
Also the soldiers don't go around fucking everything because they've been told not to. They have no idea how sexual diseases work in that world, so they're not taking any chances, especially with the Red District Whores. There's no condoms in that world, so it's extremely dangerous to just go sticking your dick into a cheap whore. Even so, some of the soldiers are still fucking in secrecy (Tomita and Bores).
I thought he accidentally put his hands on her ass. And he was really fucking nervous (imagine that, an anime protag nervous that a female has sexual interest in him). It bothers me because it was SO CONVENIENT that they got interrupted. For me, it's a matter of "just have them fuck or don't even bother teasing it that hard." There was such sexual tension and since then nothing has come of it. No private talk between Rory and Itami. No uncomfortable tension. Nothing. It may as well have never happened.
>He got hit by the backblast from Yao
>That would have tore a hole in his chest normally
My God they were absolute garbage under pressure. They were briefed on how to handle that shit and they STILL managed to kill themselves and almost kill Itami. He just got lucky.
Can you imagine how fucked the regular imperial troops would be if one of the proactive grunts managed to snag a rocket launcher and wing it? WHILE IN FORMATION, GOD FORBID?
Boy are you trying to imply that anime protags ever MEAN to do that shit?
How many times have you seen an anime where the male protag (hell, any male character in the anime) has accidentally touched a girl's tits or ass? It's like fucking clockwork. Protag trips on shit and gropes, or some other such nonsense.
>Yet it's been proven they can be destroyed in some fashion where they won't regenerate.
Huh, no. It's been proved that when demigods got too troublesome in the past they got captured, dismembered and locked somewhere that would prevent them from making trouble again (chopped and locked into different places, continuously fed to beasts etc.).
Their regeneration makes them immortal but not unstoppable, imprisoning and the such work fine.
>Rory's worry for instance was that, while being digested by the minotaur, she would lose her mind from the process. So clearly there are other ways to hurt demigods than just physically.
Getting crapped out of a minotaur's furry ass, yes. It's a joke, read the context.
I don't want to sound abrasive but this is some pretty serious autism you've got here.
It's a figure of speech anon, what Rori's basically saying is that she's thankful Itami spared her from a horrible experience, not that it would actually put her life or mental health at risk.
she has power because the prince is using her as an adviser, I'm imaging because she was a queen at one point. I have no idea why he would trust the women he knocked down from queen to sex slave though.
Who cares, this is not the case. Itami's an adult and knew full well where Rori was going and he was about to follow suit (or some petting at least) when the cellphone interrupted them.
Then why was he so nervous?
Why did he not snatch that girl by the ass and jackknife into that pussy?
"R-R-Rory, p-p-prease n-no!~"
The "adult" must have the sex drive of a fucking brick.
> 10 girly knights
There's this thing called "budget." It's was explicitly stated that about 300 Rose Knights were defending against 1000 attackers, though both were surely reduced by the time the Green Men arrived.
Because read the fucking manga. She came on him suddenly, there were other people present, she wasn't ready for it, she was super sexy, she looked like a very young girl etc. etc.
A million reasons to be nervous
Are you fucking kidding me? I'd beg for fucking forgiveness and do whatever I could to get peace talks going ASAP. They killed hundreds of men and we hit one with an arrow in the arm.
I just watched ep. 23. Did anyone else get turned on when it sounded like princess pina was getting pounded in her cell only to get disappointed to see that she was alone?
>she has power because the prince is using her as an adviser, I'm imaging because she was a queen at one point. I have no idea why he would trust the women he knocked down from queen to sex slave though.
The manga made it pretty clear that after she stopped him from getting shot, he truly believed that she was in love with him. And the guy just loves having his ego stroked.
>we hit one with an arrow in the arm.
God forbid the Japs lose even a single man. I fucking knew that arrow volley wouldn't do shit.
I got a boner from Tyuule talking shit and crushing her hope before leaving her down there.
>American spec ops being outdone by Japanese,
He's one dude and the best the CIA have there, so everyone else is below him in training. And Force Recon is probably the lowest tier on the SOC scale. They aren't even part of SOCOM.
Fuck, it's the conversations last cour all over again
>seriously the fortification seen in
>is just a formality. you won't even be able to keep a force on the field long enough to field sappers.
It's not even a formality, it's ridiculous. There are reasons we stopped building forts like that decades ago, they limit growth and are just plain unnecessary at modern detection/combat ranges. It is very definitely some pointless, stupid shit.
It didn't even make sense desu, arrow volleys are fucking lethal they'd have taken them apart, they're wearing basically padded leather armor
and there was no reason to arc those shots ffs
They start with 600 Knights. By the time the paratroopers come in there is less than 300 left and even less after that final battle.
Jade Palace was a bloodbath, its only in the anime that made it look like 10 vs 10.
Well, it might've helped since they were fighting against ancient fuckers against whom those forts work. Today those forts get blown to rubble, here at the very least they present an obstacle against someone who got close...somehow.
Considering this was their first base within an (assumed) entire enemy world it's not really that ridiculous, espexially considering that the enemy had been confirmed to rely on foot soldiers and melee attackers (which the star-shaped fort goes the best against).
Better safe than sorry, it's easy to call it ridiculous now that they're only facing the Empire and none of the other tribes/races/cultures.
>modern detection/combat ranges.
This war is asymmetrical as fuck though, one side is stuck at 2000-years-ago detection/combat ranges
I just realized the Zulu were much less advanced than the Romans despite being 2000 years their senior
>bullets are ripping into them
>guys keep doing shield formation despite knowing by this point that it doesn't do shit
>ARC THE ARROWS
>omg the volley missed why
>throwing the entire force to the front
>absolutely no rear-guard or reserves
>GUISE DA FLANKS
That scene hurt me.
>>guys keep doing shield formation despite knowing by this point that it doesn't do shit
Training dude. And discipline. When shit hits the fan you naturally return to the movements and formations your instructor ingrained into your brain for months, not your fault that everything you know is wrong for this fight.
It's even funnier because the big weakpoint of tight infantry formations is getting flanked, AND Rome had an entire army organizational system where they'd have literally two entire goddamn rows of heavy infantry reserves (excluding the first line which fights right away), each harder than the last. Fucking Medieval 2 tier moshpit combat is retarded.
Looking at responses, basically, people want to somehow be both less focused on the Japanese military (which isn't allowed to be competent, apparently) and more focused on military operations.
They want a Japanese anime about Japans interaction with a gate on Japanese soil based on a Japanese novel by a Japanese soldier to be about the American military, basically. Oh, and they can't understand politics, so it must be shit and therefore removed.
God, you people are fucking idiots.
Itami didn't get to fuck Rory because he got a call they they were about to be attacked, you stupid fuckheads. He grabbed her ass immediately beforehand.
No that's not how it worked, because Legions had more than one formation and shieldwall wasn't even the one to block missile fire, testudo was. They're not goddamn peasant spearmen whose training amounts to 'point forward and stand there', they're professional soldiers who should realize that if their shields can't block projectile fire maybe dense shield-wall isn't the best idea.
I know but holy shit you'd think their officers would warn them or adopt some new tactic of SOME KIND.
I can't even tell what infantry is intended to be good. Their fucking Frumen--er sorry I mean the Okrachina, are atrocious. The palace guards got their shit slapped by a fucking womanlet. And the generic legionnaire just...drop like flies. Is there no actual elite?
I don't think he'd have fucked her anyway though dude. He was so fucking nervous.
>and shieldwall wasn't even the one to block missile fire, testudo was.
Testudo is designed to stop a volley of arrows coming from above. None of the "green men" weapons worked like that, so shield wall was the formation that made most sense.
>which isn't allowed to be competent, apparently
I don't want it to turn into muricawank either because having a nip write that is retarded, but the Jap army is a [little] too goddamn competent.
Loose formation is a thing.
Every green knight gets a yellow rose.
>what is staggered formation
>what is spreading out, something every ancient army would've drilled for
Testudo is designed to stop a volley of arrows coming from above and front and sometimes sides and (rarely) rear. That being said, the other guy claimed they panicked and did what came first to thier minds.
That would've meant testudo when under missile fire, not shieldwall which is meant for closing against melee troops.
>And he was really fucking nervous
Because he's on the job, she looks like a loli and they're in a room full of people (including coworkers, foreign dignitaries, and an actual underage person), not because of betadom.
1. why the fucking hell did the romans volley at that range into trees
2. only a single person getting barely grazed throughout the entire combat is utterly retarded, there were like 100+ archers there, at the very least a few more people should've been hit.
3. they were at the very edge of the trees and tree cover would've been a lot thinner
But it's not effective for the JAPANESE. One thing they're going to do a shitload of if the expect to stay on the other side of the gate is expansion. Those fortifications are not in the least bit expandable.
You don;t understand. Part of the reason the Real World gave up on those forts because the enemy never got in range for them to matter. They were too expensive and too limiting to be useful when your recon and mobile forces always got to them first.
They had a perfectly fine setup in the opening battles. Trenches, barbed wire, and scout towers with thermal are all they needed.
I thought they specifically were not attempting to expand because nippon is a peaceful nation that desires only peace despite a near-literal chest of gold in front of them for the taking with minimal effort?
>They had a perfectly fine setup in the opening battles. Trenches, barbed wire, and scout towers with thermal are all they needed.
But they didn't know that. For all they knew they could have been withstanding a Helm's Deep kind of siege in a matter of weeks, a star shaped fort like that works marvelous against that sort of infantry attack.
They look out 100,000 plus soldiers with that setup, and you think they're freaking out about more (who will apparently sneak past their recon and lines) so much that they turtle up? That's a special kind of stupid, anon.
Look, star forts look awesome, so they drew a star fort. That's the beginning and end of justification. Stop trying to make it reasonable.
>(who will apparently sneak past their recon and lines)
Who said that?
Listen dude, this is a whole new unexplored world with unknown races. For all they knew they could have been facing 10x of that first army in a matter of weeks. Or undeads. Or orcs riding dragons and shit. Why take the risk when you can multiply your defensive capabilities with little effort?
Will they make another season? which arc comes next? I dont read the original source I dont know. Specially I dont know anything of the others demi-gods, I dont even know Hardy and what its the idea with that but are there more of them?
That fort is there because it's guarding the only known border between Gate-land and Earth
There are better ways to go about it, but if the Empire wants to raid Nippon again, they HAVE to go through the fort
speaking of ancient truppen, will this ever get animated?
And they would still A.) see them coming days away, because they have aerial fucking recon. and b) use trenches and lines, because modern weaponry would still smoke their asses. The only potential issues are weapons damaged from overheating and running out of ammo.
You apparently don't know shit about what fortifications suit what purposes or the extreme imbalance in intel favors the defenders, so please stop trying.
And the point is that a star fort is a shitty ass way of doing that.
I've started reading LN and... could get through first volume. Human interactions, especially those not involving main characters, and politics feel so real and mature as something little girl would have came up while playing with dolls.
Does it get any better? I've enough of bad writing thanks to that damn daily Death March.
Also how much anime drops? Can I just read some parts and jump to the new stuff?
For Beefeater, he caught her that way, and never put her down.
For Bozes, there's no way she would have agreed to such a humiliating carry method. Probably the only reason she even agreed to the piggyback is because it was the heat of the moment.
When is she going to die? She's easily the worst thing about the show, right now.
now try to figure out which of the babies is a concealed weapon.
wasn't it the case that alot of "elite" or "guard" units eventually stagnated into basically badges of honor/reknown where alot of rich kids got assigned a cushy and nonthreatening post.
Yea, I was thinking that or some torture scene. I was also disappointed.
Oh shit, same VA as rory?
iie senpai, this is MY VA.
For me, it's the unnecessary teasing, then the story pretending like it never fucking happened afterwards. Like >>138884542 said, they might as well have just not had that scene if they were going to just ignore it after he got cucked by his phone. The scene added nothing to the story.
>fucking luscious brown elf
>bound by oath or whatever do do /anything/ Itami asks of her
>he hasn't done shit with her yet
>hasn't done shit with ANY of the girls
>blonde elf feels like Itami is her dad so no fucking will occur
>blue mage is boring as fuck and just asspulled some nonsense about marriage but neither she nor Itami have acted on it in any capacity
>Rory...we've already discussed how bullshit that scene was
I swear the believability of this show is crashing down like a goddamn meteor. Itami is a young adult male surrounding by young, beautiful women who are clearly interested in him and yet his dick is as dead as the fucking fire dragon.
>blonde elf feels like Itami is her dad so no fucking will occur
She slept with him naked when she legitimately thought he was her dad. I don't think we need to worry about whether she wants to fuck her father figure.
I don't read, but I find it hard to believe she didn't get the rack for being a traitor in a medieval society at least.
Not gate related, but I was also mad about this. Seriously? The best the KGB can do is a couple bruises?
She seemed to be in a child-like state. I don't feel it'd be far-fetched for her to sleep naked by him and it not be sexual.
Even so, you cannot deny how odd it is that his dick does not awake at the presence of these ladies.
>I don't read, but I find it hard to believe she didn't get the rack for being a traitor in a medieval society at least.
She is a princess. It is not unheard of for royals to be tortured, but usually it is widely condemned when it is done. The uppercrust consider it improper to treat one of their own like a common criminal.
There was that one time in Europe when a Nobleman outright murdered a commoner man for his money. There was a massive outcry to stop the Noble from being publicly executed, because doing so would shame his entire clan. They even tried to convince him to commit suicide while in his cell, tell him he needed to die like Noble. Social class divide is artificial and needed to be maintained. The second a Noble is treated like a commoner, the system would fall apart.
I want to see Lelei's magic one more time
>not throwing your swords into the propellers
>that look of desperation in the face of uncaring soldiers
Feelsbadman. I personally hate her stupid as shit name, but I don't think she deserved that after trying to do the right thing for her empire and people.
Rory's pretty good, but Lelei's da bess
I've got a thing for deadpan characters though
