    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 ...

  • Interesting premise. Keeps you glued.
    From the onset, this anime has separated itself from the predictable fantasy anime where mystical forces and skills demolish an unprepared Earth civilization. Quite the opposite happens, actually. Medieval forces composed of knights, monsters, and dragon riders with no magical abilities enter Shibuya via a magical gate, start ransacking the population, martial law is imposed, and the Japanese ...

    Very Enjoyable Gem of the Season
    This show seams to not be getting any attention and i don't understand why. The realism of just what modern tech would do to medieval armies. This show is great in just about every way it can be and is something that i greatly wait for each week to watch.

    Action is Awesome
    Story is Great
    Animation is Great
    Comedy is Great
    Overall this is a 9.5/10 show for me and i highly recommend ...

    My summary of GATE (Written at episode 3)
    GATESummary

    An off duty SDF soldier, who is also an Otaku, tries to go to an Otaku oriented sale. On his way there, the enemy forces from an unknown world, enters through a spooky GATE. (See what I did there). Our protagonist sees this and goes 'Holy sh*t. This ain't right. But if it is right, I have to protect my Otaku oriented sale, so that it won't close.' He then goes ...

  • Slow beginning, but seems promising.
    The beginning of this anime is a bit slow, I kept with it though because it felt like they were setting you up for the storyline. You meet some of the more interesting characters in a few episodes. So far as of episode 3 there have been some great comedic moments. The animation is fantastic, and I am interested in seeing where this goes. I am curious to see how the "villainous" character plans on ...

    A PG Adaptation of the Manga
    First let me state that I have been following GATE - JIETAI KARE NO CHI NITE, KAKU TATAKERI Manga, which is a 5 star manga. I was going to wait to see the battle for ITALICA before writing a review but after seeing episode 3 I decided to put my 2 cents worth.

    While I wasn't expecting the adaption to be as graphic as the manga but I was hoping that it would be able to convey the how violent ...

  • Boy was I right about this one!
    When I saw that there was going to be a mid-evil v.s the real world anime I just new that this anime was going to be great, and boy was I right about that. If you like guns and mid-evil time era then this is where to start.

    p.s. epi.2 is the best so far in my opinion but there is more to come hope you enjoy this anime.

    Feels like a Turtledove Novel come to life
    I'm enjoying the vibe from this. l'm a fan of Harry Tutrledove's series' which include an army out of time, such as the lost Roman legion series. This feel something like that.

    I'm also a fan of the fact that the main protagonist isn't a wimpy high school kid who's being dominated by ultra-powerful little girls (although they're included in this). The political maneuverings of the powers that ...

    Must watch one of the highlight shows this season!
    Overall this is a higher quality show that reminds me of many others. Not in the cliche manner but in the fact that it's like SAO, or Robotic Notes, a notable anime that's of unique characteristic and has a few twists that throw you off. I'm not going to spoil them but IE the 1st episode is truly awesome. More similar shows might be like dog days or Invaders! but with a completely different ...
