    Gate review in bullet points
    *Animation quality: very high
    The animation appears almost completely hand drawn with only minimal use of 3d. So far action sequences are maintaining a high FPS.

    *Character believably: high
    The MC is not a high schooler and appears to be a capable adult despite his deviant interests. He is not angsty and rarely makes outright dumb choices.

    *Pacing: good
    Rarely felt like there were any ...

    Generation Kill with Loli Cat Girls (Is that a good thing?)
    Concept
    When a gate opens up to a hostile feudal world, the JSDF's job sounds very simple.
    Plan of Action
    Step 1: Seize Gate
    Step 2: Kill Aslan
    Step 3: Take loli cat girls
    Step 4: ....
    Step 5: Profit...

    The JSDF has machine guns, artillery, and tanks. The feudal primitives have swords and horses. How hard can it be? Even 10,000 men is enough to reduce an army ...

    Should be better, but not too shabby
    Good stuff: The concept itself makes for an interesting show of clashing cultures with a heavy emphasis on warfare, peppered with some daily life differences. The animation is pretty good, though it does occasionally incorporate 3D modeling animation, which I personally disdain with a passion as it usually isn't very good (no exceptions found in this).

    "Mixed" stuff: There are ...

    Its like Everyone's wet dream at once
    I intend to Update this review through to the last episode.

    ((as of Episode 12))
    So...you like shows with military accuracy? guns? machines of war?
    ...how about Fantasy? Dragons? Magic? Goblins?
    ...and Magical Girls? Elf Girls? Fighting girls? more....exotic girls?
    ...or a semi-coherent story? about Overwhelming military power? Politics?

    Well, this show has all of it, and then some. ...

    GATE is Military Propaganda
    I am positive that the Japanese Gov't had a hand in creating this anime. To me it obviously looks like their attempt at using a flashy, high production value anime to get an entire generation of otaku to support the self defense force and want to enlist in the military. They just blatantly mixed together all the things we love about anime (magic, fantasy worlds, cat girls, ect...) in with an otaku ...

    Promising start, weak finish
    "Splendid! How does Japan elevate even the smallest dishes into works of art?" squeals the busty warrior princess about her tea and pastry in Episode 12. If only the same were true for this show. There are some entertaining and funny moments throughout the first 12 episodes, but they fade behind a flurry of fanservice and groan-inducing nationalism as the series progresses.

    Good Set Up To This Series
    So far I have seen 2 episodes of this anime and even though it hasn't WOWED me I think that it has a solid structure and can go a lot of different ways and I'm am looking forward to see the rest.
    It starts off with a Japanese city getting invaded by a fantasy medieval army with various monsters and human soldiers who arrived through a mysterious Gate. With modern Technology the Japanese ...

    One of best in season
    My friend and I are convinced that this will be one of the best series that will be showing this season. The other being Rokka. From what we can gathered, its a decent take on what the reaction would be if this would happen in reality what with sending troops to go in and scout the area and do surveillance so they have information of what to do. Interested to see how the Princess and her group ...

    Good start but degrading storyline and poor character interaction ruin it.
    I'll make this brief, the show starts off being worth watching, however around the halfway point the characters lose their depth and sense of purpose. I would recommend it only if your really bored and want something to watch. going into more depth the show starts with a purpose. The protagonist is a good guy with an understandable mindset, however in the latter part of the series the character ...
