This worth watching?

I remember you guys losing your shit over it and it's finally come up on the top of my backlog
>>
>>154394782
yes unless you're an amerifat that gets triggered by your shitshow country being shown as the shitshow it is, if that's the case you'll hate it

Light Novel first, then animu.

Thought this was about Japan's Army, not America's?
>>
>>154394878

Light Novels have an official translation?
>>
>>154394881
Yeah, but there's one segment where America, Russia, and China special forces act like clowns and they get identified because only America has black people in their military. Basically, you need to be able to snort and carry on instead of getting butthurt.

its really bullshity propaganda. No character has any depth whatsoever, it really just feels like a SDF recruiting anime. Basically everyone except the SDF is bad, the SDF is good for totally not invading a country, blowing up an entire army, invading a capital city twice, and then just go the way of cultural assimilation. If you replace Japan with the US, and the random elf countries with Japan, the irony makes the show worth watching
>>
>>154394782
The entire premise of the show boils down to "Japan is the greatest and can't do anything bad, all other countries are shit." Personally, I disliked it because it very quickly devolved into "Magical waifu quest 9000", making very little use of it's unique setting, but if you end up liking it more power to you. Give it the 3 episode rule and stop watching if you stop having fun.

It's pretty hilarious considering they have shit like StarGate where in one arc they openly threaten to attack Russian, China and other countries with their space fleet.

But hey, it's okay when America does it.

I thought it was good in a stupid popcorn flick way, like the same way you would enjoy Die Hard, or Hardcore Henry, or Top Gun or something. Watching those F4s take those dragons was pretty kickass.
Otherwise it was pretty fucking stupid. Literally a JSDF recruitment anime.

A demigoddess took out the special forces, you fucking idiot. By herself.

I should add- The Anime is an adaptation of a Manga, which is an adaptation of a LN, which is an adaptation of a web novel written by an officer in the JGSDF, so the whole "Japan strong" song and dance is understandable if not annoying. The worst part, though, is that there is a good story underneath, shining out through the cracks in the caked-on shit that is the main narrative. For instance, an Elf in a bar telling a friend about her witnessing a "Man in green" casting the spell "Bak'blast clir" with his "Great metal wand" (she saw a soldier fire a panzerfaust 3 at a Dragon). Or when token mage waifu reads physics textbooks, discovers chemistry, and develops explosion magic. Or, hell, any one of the handful of good combat scenes you can look up on youtube. With competent direction, and an anime-original plot, this could have been great.
>>
>>154395954
If you weren't a secondary, you would know that the three teams ran into each other (litearlly), exchanged fire and took casualties, and were engaged by Japanese SF all long before Rory showed up.
>>
>>154395775
If that was it it would be fine. The problem arises with America, Russia, and China, /simultaneously/ being bested by glorious Nippon.
>>
>>154395892
what's truly hilarious is 'demigods and dragons? a-okay! murka is slightly incompetent? unrealistic this anime is total shit!'

Am I the only one who dropped this not because of the retarded geopolitics but because it's pretty fucking weak in general? It's just a step above the average isekai and rather shallow and uninteresting. A waste of a decent premise really.
>>
>>154396225

The new light novels (not the original full-length novel publications) have been untouched as far as I can tell
>>
>>154396057
I agree. It'd be much more interesting if it were self aware, with deeper characters, and reflected more on the implications of such a world changing event to BOTH the empire and Japan (so Japan has found a magical land where people can defy gravity yet somehow noone is using that power back at earth or trying to replicate it)
>>
It's such an interesting setting.
But it sucks, dropped it first episode. The manga is good and much darker though.
>>
>>154394782
No

The manga is enjoyable, the anime made me puke blood from my eyeballs

The threads are all garbage now too

>>154396242
Nah, I was the same.

You'd think a show with this premise would be amazing but Gate made it so boring to watch

Man hasn't been a Gate thread in a while. Let's get this started right.

The manga is the best by the way.
>>
It's a shame we never got a chapter where Itami finally gets to go to Comiket and the girls tag along. It would've been comedy gold.

>Itami finds doujins of the girls and his whole day becomes about trying to keep the girls from seeing them
>Bozes and Pina drag an embarrassed Tomita around the yaoi section
>The girls meet cosplayers of themselves
>The girls get mistaken for cosplayers of themselves until some guy tries to take a creepshot and gets his ass kicked
>Rory takes off at some point, finds a doujin of Itami fucking her, and secretly buys it
>Kuribayashi ransacks a table with a doujin she thinks is based on her, but it turns out to be an actual character from some random anime
>Everybody gets roped into helping at Risa's table
>Lelei spends most of the time talking to printing companies
>Dunno about Tuka nobody cares about her anyway
>>
starts out great, falls apart in the second cour. watch it, drop it if you dont like where it goes.

third recon team urban ops in Akusho spinoff when?

In one of the 4komas you do see he drags the girls along one time. He gets cleaning duty for it.
>>
>>154396260
As far as I know the original novels and the LNs are 99.9% identical, they just split them in half for each LN.

Translations exist, but they only go up to LN vol. 8 and they're missing vol. 6, because the translators are working from Chinese translated raws and not Japanese ones and apparently they can't find Chinese raws for the missing volumes.
>>
>>154394782
no

/a/ blew the nationalism out of proportion but even with that being the case it's pure garbage

even the main draw of modern weaponry ripping apart medieval barbarians are undercut by the harem antics.
>>
>>154395245
I'm a /k/ammando bleed over and it's hilarious seeing /ak/ threads that sperg out over that scene.
Gotta love the great anime imperialist attitude in Japan. Does the heart good
>>
No. It's boring even without the JSDF propaganda. There are like two good moments including the FotV.
>>
>>154394782
It's good but the threads were shit due to /k/ constantly coming in and shitting up the thread

I've said this before, but I think a lot of the dissatisfaction with GATE comes from watching the series from a /k/ perspective.

If you approach it as a relatively typical isekai harem wish fulfillment series, but with the twist of being intended for an older than normal audience, and think of all the JSDF stuff as window dressing, the series becomes a lot more palatable.
>>
Watching the show before dropping it, it felt like there was no opposition to Japan. Invade new world, decimate everything, can't be touched.

Foreign nations can't invade Japan cuz violation of rights. Also most boring parts of the show happen when they are in real world

It's pretty good compared to American sci fi series specially their star gate or star trek series where the writing is far worse.
>>
>>154394782
It wasn't a great series, but it was pretty entertaining.
>>
I actually thought GATE was relatively light on the JAPAN STRONK bullshit after reading the novels.

It's more glaring because it's modern and takes place in the real world, but if you subtract that factor it's pretty minor compared to anime's history of inserting OP Japanese people into every possible historical situation, their endless worship and glorification of Samurai and katana, etc. I'd say, as a recent example, that Drifters is vastly worse about it than GATE is.
>>
>>154394782
That blue-haired chick should've been their enemy, not ally. She was smart, knew magic and was able to figure out how modern weaponry worked.
>>
>>154398430
amerifats aren't used to anything but AMERICA STRONK so they curl up into little crying balls when exposed to something else in an anime
>>
Despite it being an obvious recruitment ad for the JSDF, I enjoyed it. It is by no means an amazing anime but it's one of those animes that you just randomly see because of boredom.
>>
>>154396116
Not in the anime but in the manga. OP was talking about the anime. Whether it happened in the manga or not is irrelevant because of that.
>>
>>154398718
Speaking of JSDF recruitment, that's another missed world-building opportunity on the author's part. I bet people (otaku) would be signing up in droves with hopes of going to the special region.

Hell, that'd be a good setting for a chapter right there, the brass could send Itami and co. to Comiket as a recruiting stunt. (Of course it'd really just be an excuse for Kanou to go.)
>>
So why japan hates GATE ? The most recent articles about it are people refunding LN collection set which caused quite trouble to publisher.

Jap special forces would rape cia and spetznas. Japanese always have high quality technology

China special forces would be the weakest since they use low quality everything in China

what is so unrealistic about a special operations group getting killed trying to infiltrate a military owned bath house , SDF was posted up waiting
>>
>>154396264
Most of that stuff is true for the LN.

Japan has a whole remote facility set up for testing magic and other Special Region "tech," and it's particularly important because the gate is tearing space/time apart on both sides
