Well, at least the anime is, for now...



I really liked Gate. Whether it was the awe in the eyes of each person when they saw how cool modern technology is,or seeing how overpowered modern weapons are compared to might and magic, or Itami's harem, I will never know for sure why I watched every episode the day it came out.

Unfortunately episode 12 was the last, but fear not! Gate has a manga AND a light novel.


Despite having enjoyed Gate so much, there are a few things that I did not like about the show. Of course I'm not going to share all of them, just one:

In Gate, the SDF has the most firepower, and everything in the Special Region, even with different races, armies, magic, and dragons, is considered fodder compared to that.

In the case of the Gate, the ones with the better firepower (being a modern day army) can subjugate the Special Region if they wanted to, but the show doesn't do that. Instead, it shows excessive lethal defense against anyone arrogant enough to attack without testing the SDF's full strength.

I can compare the strength and use of tactics of the empire (and everyone else in the special region) to almost any other show that I can think of right now: Arslan Senki , Oda Nobuna (and other Oda shows), and they pale in comparison to armies from other medieval/sengoku shows.

And so, my whole point is that seeing modern weapons being used on fodder isn't satisfying, and I am looking for a show that has strong medieval/sengoku period armies pit against modern weapons, without modern weapons being the victor. It can still be a one sided massacre, given that the modern armies are the ones that get destroyed by the supernatural. >:]

Does anyone have any recommendations?

They plan on making a 2nd season fyi, won't be out till next year though.

As for a recommendation I cant say I've seen anything of that nature or at least remember it, so I cant help with that.

Yeah I just saw it on MAL, apparently it's going to be called the Fire Dragon Arc. I'm pretty excited

I feel like the manga was ahead of the anime, enough so that the anime could have been 24 episodes or so, instead of getting another season after skipping one. Although it makes sense, since Fate/UBW and Seraph of the End did the same thing, I am impatient. On that note: Seraph of the End season 2 looks.... dope.



I am definitely going to watch these. Thanks for the suggestions!
