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.

Our only word on whether that's true is "those who resisted died, those who didn't were imprisoned" which argues against that assumption.

Bozes is already riding Tomita, Itami knows this and basically refuse to reprimand him, thats why Kuri walks all over him

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?
>>
>>138857923
That's because Kuri wanted to ride Tomita first, not because of some devotion to discipline.
>>
>>138857865
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.
>>
>>138858030
She just listened to several hours of obvious green man combat which did not result in her rescue.
>>
>>138858035
>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.

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.
>>
I want to see a doujin of Kuri consensually gangbanged by every man in the recon team except Itami.
>>
>>138858358
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.
>>
>>138858019
take your yuri goggles off, it's knightly honour and loyalty that drives her actions there. besides both pina and bozes are canon straight and rotten on top of that

>>
>>138858388
Where do you think Itami is?
>>
>>138858384
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.
>>
>>138858420
>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.

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?

>>138858565

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.

>>138858568
What are you talking about? All the nobility we saw come out of the the prison still had their nice clothes and jewelry.

I would invade their capitol with minimal recon and no awareness of their combat capabilities, of course.

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.
>>
>>138858778
>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.
>>
>>138858998
>Someone spoil me. What is Tyuule's plan?
Basically to have the Empire fight to the death, like Japan was planning to do in WW2.

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.

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.

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?
>>
>>138852550
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.
>>
>>138862371
Fireman's carry requires too much anatomy knowledge to portray accurately. I don't think the design on their armor can support viewing from the necessary angles.

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?

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

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.

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.

>>138870450

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.

>>138870012
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.

>>138870148
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.

>>138870166

>>138870698

Rory is magic, so it makes sense for her to fuck normal people up, but Kuri is just a well-trained normal person

>>
>>138870524
>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.
>>138870698
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.

Those soldiers were well trained with holding a wall shield and some sword swinging techniques.

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.

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.

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.
>>
>>138871759
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.

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.

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

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.

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.
>>
>>138858672
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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elagabalus

>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.

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.

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.

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

>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

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?

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?

What is the deal with patting girls heads, anyway?
>>
>>138877658
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.
>>
>>138878128
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.

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.

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.

Everyone is saying that they would want to cut back the cartoonish villains and the politics and the jingoism.

I disagree.

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.

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.

>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.

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.

>>138886344
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.
>>
>>138887154
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.
>>
>>138887154
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.

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.
>>
>>138887758
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.
>>
>>138879684
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.

>>138887874
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.
>>

>>138887885
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?

>>
>>138887997
>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.
>>
>>138887944

>>138888111
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.

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
>>
>>138887297
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.

>>138887341
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.

>>138887348
They had a perfectly fine setup in the opening battles. Trenches, barbed wire, and scout towers with thermal are all they needed.
>>
>>138888559
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?

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.
>>
I want to cum deep inside Shandy.
>>
>>138888744
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.

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.

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.
