    Well this is different...
    What would happen if our modern military travelled back in time and faced our ancestors? How could they change history? This is a topic of frequent discussion, especially on the internet and more then one creative soul has tried to answer the question. In Gate the discussion of modern army vs ancient army takes on an additional unique spin in that the "ancient world" is not our own but a parallel ...

    The anime is good!!!
    The anime is good so far. It's making me laugh and it's making me enjoy the battle scenes even though the artillery just out numbers them. The main character seems pretty "chill" since he's an otaku and most of us here are. I give it 5 stars. I recommend watching this even if there is only 2 episodes.

    Gate is kind of unique. I'd say give it a watch as it touches a very ignored genre.
    [Only 6 episodes have been released as this is being typed]
    (Also this is an edit of a review made when there was only 3 episodes released!)
    Plot:
    For those of you scared off by the opening, no this is not gonna be a harem.
    So far this show looks pretty nice and with a fresh concept that I haven't seen translated into that many anime. (Beside the "let's make the main ...

    Touches on new ideas, so original...
    I am a big fan of this show as it touches on the idea of temporal or interdimentional shift, AKA forcing your self into another universe and coming into the understanding of its nature (Although they are yet to give the process a name at episode 4). It is nice to have something like this which isn't the whole 'main character wakes up in a unknown world and has to save it because secret, untold, ...

  • This is an interesting watch
    I agree with everyone here when they say it's different to what you normally get in anime and is funny and whatnot. The main guy is not the hot-headed/shy person we sometimes see, and is an otaku too. If interested or unconvinced, check out my review of this on my blog onlyanimanga.blogspot.co.uk

    Mix those genres like a smoothie!
    I find it perfect how this show combines the genres of Comedy, Military and Fantasy (Magic powers)! The show kept me going and going until i reached the latest ep. in the simulcast...
    Too bad it's still ongoing as i prefer to watch stuff in one go.
    But this is absolutely one of my favorites!

    Harem Trash, Poor Characters, Garbage Setting
    Not recommended, minor spoilers below.

    The first few episodes are kind of interesting. Then it quickly devolves into just another bland harem show where the main character is "inexplicably" surrounded with tons of attractive women who are into him.

    The fantasy setting is alright, but barely gets developed beyond generic european type monarchy and circlejerking about how great Japan is (4 ...

    Still better than most this season
    It isn't perfect. It does have its flaws. However, it is nonetheless enjoyable. It is based on a novel, so it would be difficult for the anime producers to mess up the story by trying to be "creative." Overall, it's just a worthy watch, but it will be a hit or miss for some who are not used to this type of content.
    [Edit]
    Anime of this season

    One of the best this season
    Definitely worth a watch, if you're like me and are turned off by cringey protagonist cliches or anime harem tropes that the screenshots may suggest then you're in luck as this show actually takes itself seriously. The main character is presented as someone who's at peace with his own principles. Rather than being an annoying poster child who constantly spouts out love for his favorite video game ...

    Great So Far. Keep It UP!
    Reviewed as of Episode 12.
    Positives:
    1) Plot reminds me of my favourite Novel Series; The "Novels of The Change" by SM Stirling which begins with "Island in The Sea of Time".
    Key difference between the two being the fantasy elements of Magic etc.
    .
    2) Ride of The Valkyries in Episode 6 was what drew me into this show.
    Simply glorious; referencing "Apocalypse Now" was a brilliant move. ...
