VIDEO: Second Season of "Gate" Anime Scheduled

"Dragon Flame" chapter scheduled for January

This week's broadcast of episode 12 of Gate, "What Would Itami Do," has ended with the news that the adaptation of Takumi Yanai's military fantasy novel series will be returning in January 2016 for the "Dragon Flame Chapter."


The author is an ex-Self Defense Force official. After being discharged from military service, he was posting the novel on novel contribution site Arcadia from 2006 to 2009, then Tokyo-based publisher AlphaPolis started publishing its print editions from April 2010. While the main story already ended in five volumes, the spin-off series is still going and its latest fifth volume was released in July.

An ongoing adaptation from Satoru Sao will be the first manga released in English by Sekai Project. Sentai Filmworks has announced plans to release the current season on North American home video.
