Why is there no series like GATE, except that the fantasy side beats the modern side via magic, demi-gods and other BS hax? There's plenty of series involving modern armies beating medieval armies, but there doesn't appear to be any of the reverse.
If GATE was about demi gods like Rory invading Japan and then enslaving people like Itami as fuck toys, that would be a lot more entertaining than "hurr go to fantasy land, all girls instantly want MC's cock".
>Meaning of Lorelei: "alluring, temptress"
This show was good as heck until about halfway through, where it decided to slow down for ten goddamn years since they'd run out of shitters to stomp
After that, it got demoted to good-tier, because the
show never played "Fortunate Son" while a big fucking stomping was happening, though the raid on the capitol was still hilarious
That being said, Kuribayashi is best girl.
Never. 961 years old and she's still pure.
I'm scanning and don't see the implication that she had sexual relationships before. She has had many meetings and partings though. Pretty sure Itami is the only one who she really liked and want to fuck.
Not that guy, but it's established a few times in the show that Rory starts getting her lady boner on when people are dieing around her, since their souls get sent to the afterlife through her. I think it's reasonable to say she's fugged a dude or two in the past 961 years, my dude
I recall this too, though maybe it was from a doujin and not the manga?
I could care less. Virgins are overrated and I feel horrible for her if she's had to suffer through 900+ years of celibacy.
Same exact feel, man.
I'm trying to get a trip to Japan together this coming winter/spring. I'll definitely hit the doujin shops and I'll sure as hell scan this one if I find it.
Oh god, this reminds me...
>At Anime Expo
>Huge party on the Westin pool deck, pretty dark out there and I'm drunk
>See Rory with a really nice costume
>Walk up "hey, I like your costume, I fucking love Rory"
>"Oh, thanks man" in a masculine voice with a thick southeast Asian accent
And that's how I was stuck in a really really awkward conversation with a trap Rory for 10 minutes.
Everything except the face and the voice. I'm not into that shit though.
Most of what made it so awkward was that he seemed like he WAS into that shit, too. I was wearing my III Recon patch and he was like groping my chest where it was when he saw it.
Shitloads of fantasy stories is about the superiority of magic where someone magically gain superpower then become unstopabble juggernaut even when military send their entire forces. If anything, GATE is the first one I saw where the modern technology absolutely rekt magic.
Correction, GATE not rekting magic but medieval armies. But watching story focused on modern military destroying medieval warfare still kind of rare. The first time I watch the opening and saw there are elf character and magician who life in the forest, I thought this will be a story where our heroes is actually on the medieval side, trying to stop the modern military forces from colonizing their world and corrupting the peaceful nature and villages.
All I want is a story where a normal army defeats guys like the ones on hellsing but with pure tactics and shiet. Like an army of batmans. Much more like the arc with the mercenaries but with them winning and not jobbing like al normal humans do in every manga.
With no MC, just the particular stories of the random soldiers that beat down satanic monsters.
Gate has been the closest to this feeling.
If i recall correctly the witches fought techno-warlocks. Something something, truce at some point.
Remember what happened to these bros?
>All I want is a story where a normal army defeats guys like the ones on hellsing but with pure tactics and shiet. Like an army of batmans.
But that's crazy. The point with real life armies is that we know what it can and cannot do. If you actually want realistic armies then they will win only when it makes perfect sense that they would win. That's what makes it realistic. If you wnt miracles then you need superheroes and magicians.
As an example, Michael Bay used a rail gun to kill Devastator in one of the Transformer films. That railgun isn't functional yet in real life and I never liked how they had to resort to fiction for that scene. It defeated the purpose of making the military look good.
For a fantasy world to beat a modern force you need a few conditions to be met.
First if arrows and bolts are viable weapons without magic then the modern force dominates due to the massive advantage of firearms over bows and cross bows.
If you need magic to make arrows work then you make everyone into a magic user or the production side requires magic for arrows used against humans.
The same question applies to artillery. If the fantasy side never advanced to the use of field artillery against soldiers rather than just fortifications why would they have a defense against it? Sure you can say they learned and adapted magic to defeat indirect fire but to what limit? If a bomber drops 50,000kg of HE bombs will a shield just absorb all that power?
If you say no to range weapons that lack magic you must justify the energy diverted. If a sabot dart from a MBT is putting out 12MJ of power is it reasonable to expect a shield meant to stop arrows which are in the range of 60J to work?
Next can a handheld weapon damage an armored vehicle? It would need to be magic. So now we have magic arms that can cut through metal as if it was nothing. What industrial application in terms of machining and stone work does that imply?
Do they have magic armor that stops magic swords? Does everyone have this?
Does that magic armor protect them from flamethrowers and poison gas, as well as explosive forces and being crushed?
Simply put a fantasy force can do harm with magic but only if you take magic to an all inclusive level can it beat a modern force.
>/a/ likes GATE
This board disappoints me more and more every day. We're literally no different from MAL.
I lost it when she was in the office attire for the hearing.
And when she brushed her hair back from her ears and said "would you like to touch them?"
>/a/ is one person
leave and don't come back kudasai (please)
>I was kind of triggered because they only showed old military equipment for some reason
It makes sense because old equipment is adequate, it is cheaper, they could abandon them at a moment's notice and retreat without losing too much, and if the weapons were captured and used against them then they can pull out the better guns.
They even deliberately hid the true maximum range of their artillery by having them fire at shorter range than they need to be. You don't show all your cards unless you have to. It also helps that old equipment are easier to maintain in the field and needed less infrastructure like GPS satellites.
>I want guerilla wizards and magicians
>>old frail wizard goes behind enemy lines to cast explosion in the main camp
Except if you give armies that kind of power then there would be no reason to have men wearing metal armour and swinging swords. The entire Fantasy element gets destroyed if the classic footman became obsolete and disappear. If forces that can fight modern armies truly existed, then all the medieval weapons and armour would be necessity disappear too.
Because just four minutes of continuous exposure to her can elicit painful erections that can eclipse even the tallest of skyscrapers.
It's called restraint. Or maybe too much of a good thing.
He didn't do anything bad or weird enough for me to go all "no homo bro." It was a pretty normal conversation, he just seemed a bit more interested in me than a normal guy if you know what I mean, and it's always gonna be weird talking to a dude who's dressed as your waifu.
