    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 ...

    Good looking, and very interesting ^_^
    A noob's review

    Well, I am not pro at writing reviews but I have to say that I liked how the anime started, it combines our world, the current technology of weapons, buildings ect and the medieval technology and buildings, from another world connected to ours by a magic portal, the characters as far as I see they are very interesting and well developed. I reviewed the anime just from the ...

    A Very Promising Show
    The concept of this show is awesome and so far, has been very well executed. Given that episode 1 actually shows blood and people dying (without the compressed aerosol blood spray), I can tell that this is anime is going to be heavily story driven, on par with animes like SAO and Irregular at Magic High.

    I'm very much looking forward to watching where this series goes.

    PS - If you're ...

    Should You Watch This Show?
    Short Answer: Yes
    How Long: Give it 3 episodes before deciding

    Animation: Colorful, a bit lacking. Pretty, but its no "Asukara".
    Characters: Generic. Its hard to distinguish most of the human males. Most of the details went into the 3 women.
    Plot: Interesting. Unlike "Outbreak Company", this Japan has no problems sending troops into the other side to spark a self-defense war. Its worth ...

    First Impressions: Shots Fired
    *Disclaimer* This is not a full review, it is my first impressions after watching episode one.

    What happens when a fantasy army invades downtown Japan? It gets shot to bits. Now the SDF is heading through the gate into this unknown world looking for some payback! On the surface, the setup done in Gate's first episode seems awesome. Dragons vs tanks. Guns vs goblins. Magic vs military. However, ...

  • Very original and awesome!
    So far the anime is great it follows the life of an otaku as he makes his way to a convention of a popular video game while he gets off the train a "Gate" appears in the city releasing people from another dimension or something and the otaku ends up saving the lives of countless citizens becoming one of the selected to go beyond the gate. Very original, awesome idea.

    My Opinion of GATE (Saw EP01 so far)
    Initial Impression
    I thought from the fifth minute in that this is going to be a good anime. The plot can be pretty similar to other anime, but I do not think we have seen two different worlds. Excluding World Trigger if you are including that.

    What I think they should stay away from
    I think it would be good if they don't have a harem in this anime. For reasons that are ...

    Great start to a great anime
    Smooth start! The first episode is very interesting and leaves me wanting to know more about both the plot and the characters. I like how the occasional humor helps a bit to lighten up what could potentially be a very dark anime. I will continue watching for sure. Can't wait to see the outcome of the rest!

    Great Start So Far!!
    I'm intrigued by the first episode and look forward to seeing how it progresses!!!!!
    I love the idea of a fantasy world mixed with current day society.....I hope the rest of the series lives up to my expectations....

    The rest of the review is because I have to hit a certain number of characters....
