Synopsis

When the Divine Gate opened, the living world, the heavens, and the underworld became connected, ushering an era of chaos where desires and conflict intersect. To restore order, the World Council is formed. As peace is restored, the Divine Gate becomes an urban legend. In that world, boys and girls deemed fit by the World Council are gathered. They are ones who aim to reach the gate for their personal objectives. Those who reach the gate can remake the world. What lies beyond the gate? When they reach the door, will the world change? Will it be the past that changes, or will it be the future?

So that's basically only less than half an hour . Not bad for Funimation if they manage to get it out on first day. Thanks.

Episode 1

And so it begins with a fire user thwarted in a hijacking attempt by, you guessed it, a water user. And so, everybody is after the Divine Gate, which is something nobody as seen and grants wishes. That water user, Aoto, who took out the guy on the tram, is a new officer and he joins Akane's team. What a sad person Aoto is seeing that he lived such a lonely life and resorted to being a parent killer. The first episode is pretty solid, and at the very least it does a good job in describing Aoto's character. Let's see how things build off from this.

Alright, my thoughts:

Episode 1

Confusing. It feels like the episode dropped me in the middle of the story with a lot of mechanics that will probably get explained later on. We got eh...elements related to the Divine Gate, many characters introduced, and the concept of wishes. Akane seems like a normal guy with some airheaded personality.

This has potential but the story feels pretty loose for now.

Aoto is a mysterious character so I am expecting his character to be explained better later on. (a brief description about what he did 4 years ago is thrilling enough). I wonder if it's true though?

I get the vibe of "I didn't kill my parents, but it causes less problems if I say I did." Aoto's house was on fire yet he uses water. I'm sure it was the brother's doing. The only reason the brother was loved more than Aoto is because he had an ability, right? (I forgot if the powers had specific names.) I wouldn't be surprised if that incident was the reason Aoto obtained his powers, but not much was explained about that, so I'm gonna put a halt on the speculations for now.

Most of the focus was on Aoto, so I don't really have anything to say about the other characters or plot.

Episode 1

I must say, the show has an interesting concept.

First off, being adapted from a game, you can tell the soundtrack is from a video game because it sounds like it! The Sci-fi and Supernatural mechanics looks interesting along with the divine gate as well. The characters seem interesting as well as we are getting to know one of our protagonists so far.

Well, that's all for the first gate show, so looking forward to that....and the other gate as well ;)

Soo not my imagination but rain was happening all the time even in the flash backs kinda different. I also think the Gate scene was a FMA knock off but will keep watching to see more

Well.. If that episode was anymore emo it would start cutting itself. That was Chaos Dragon bad. Which means i might just watch it to see how it keeps staggering on.

Episode 1: Endless Rain

Maybe its because I went into this with low expectations but I enjoyed this quite a bit. Although it was quite confusing those concepts and the whole Divine Gate thing should get explained in the near future.

Surprised they went with developing the MC's backstory in the first episode. Usually don't see those until later, but his family is messed up and I feel no sympathy for them.

The characters so far seem fun and the animation really stands out to me. Especially in the ED sequence, I expect some epic action scenes to commence.

I am looking forward to the next one.
