    What I Want This Show to Be
    GATE has flashes of brilliance when it's demonstrating the disparity in military might between modern Japan and a medieval kingdom, and the struggle of the kingdom to preserve their safety and independence in the presence of this now power. However, the show never really goes anywhere with this potential, and squanders it on basic fantasy tropes. The show would be much more interesting if, ...

    Could have been good, but is just meh instead
    The concept is kind of interesting of sending a humanitarian peace-keeping force to make peace with an aggressive fantasy kingdom in another dimension. Unfortunately, the characters are really boring, and the story gets really dumb as the series progresses. The most interesting stuff all happens in the first half a dozen episodes, and it just goes downhill after that. I'll give it credit for ...

    Not even worth checking out.
    Gate is propaganda but as an anime series it fails on the most basic of principles and just isn't any good once you realize it was built solely around being pro-military media fodder.

    Story:

    Gate's surprisingly strong opening and base concept is the only reason I didn't rate it any lower as in the right hands they could have been the building blocks for a genuinely good show. ...

    Good Start, But Gets Weaker as You Progress
    **This review is based on the first 11 episodes of the series.

    The Good:
    I really like the foundation of the series. The idea that a magical, medieval realm (complete with trained dragons and ogres) uses a portal to enter the modern realm to attack is pretty interesting. And (for a fresh change of pace) the modern day army is actually portrayed as something that is not ...

    Boring and Inconsistent
    The show can't decide whether it wants to be serious or a joke and frequently transitions between a comedic homage to war films, a standard anime fantasy harem, boring and predictable fight scenes, and international intrigue that is so simplistic it’s silly.

    Entertainings, but predictable
    Gate is a good show, but I don't think it deserves all the hype it gets. First is the issue of the propaganda portion, while many hold the opinion that it's just part of the suspension of disbelief I would disagree and say that it is a weak point to the show. This is particularly evident when the characters are constantly treated as morally in the right even in cases where they are not. For ...

    Great Another World Anime!
    I love the another world anime type of shows and this one really hits the spot! It's got the collaboration of fantasy world and real world colliding in a great world found on the other side of the gate. Not like any other anime I've seen and would recommend watching the full thing and you will surely become a fan.

    An Interesting Premise, but a Flawed One
    GATE is one of those series which you can tell whether you will enjoy from the first couple of episodes, something that is not nearly common enough in series I have seen. I was able to finish it, at the least, but I never felt that I needed to catch the next episode at the time it aired, by any means. Take that as you wish. As follows is my review.

    Plot Summary:

    An ex-military ...

    Japans rambo and his harem, the anime
    JESUS this is a god awful anime. This is the problem with allowing any fan to write a review about anything he likes.....

    The difference between art and a product is that art will focus on trying to present itself and whatever it has to offer to any viewer, while a product will just want views and sales......GATE is a product.

    The concept is really cool. Fantasy world has an evil empire ...
