    One of best in season
    My friend and I are convinced that this will be one of the best series that will be showing this season. The other being Rokka. From what we can gathered, its a decent take on what the reaction would be if this would happen in reality what with sending troops to go in and scout the area and do surveillance so they have information of what to do. Interested to see how the Princess and her group ...

  • A really good story line.
    The story line is really good. At first attack of ancient people on Tokyo with Mysterious Gate, I thought they would be able to take over Tokyo with magic or something but it turned out to be so real to me that Modern technology won on Magic.

    can't wait to see more episodes.......

  • Full-on fantasy meets irreverant SDF soldiers
    First impression: this show is fun on a lot of levels. There's the SDF vs. Giant Monsters, an apprentice mage learning about the culture of an invading army, a modern army trying to get to know the nearby villages and culture and build good relations (reminiscent of news from Iraq, etc.). And of course a Goth Lolita warrior priestess and a bashful Elf.

    Later impression, having been introduced ...

  • First Impression on GATE
    I honestly did not know what I was getting into when I first started watching GATE, but I am not disappointed. The whole idea of a gate opening up in the middle of Japan where orcs, goblins, and all sorts of fantasy creatures come through is a great concept. Not to mention introducing us to a character that is easily likable. I have high hopes for this series as it progresses and grows. The ...

  • My thoughts on GATE so far.
    So, the first impressions of this anime are good. It seems to have solid animation and characters, and the story is a nice change of pace from your average Fantasy genre anime. However, after reading the manga I will say that this anime will most likely seem watered down and far less gritty for those who have read it.In my opinion this anime does not properly convey the grit of the world in GATE. ...

  • It's a happy twist to most shows
    I find this show bringing a bit of a different taste than most animes. Yes it has quite a few cliches and things you'd expect, but it isn't afraid of them and in fact makes fun of it's self a little. It's mix of serious moments, moments where you laugh, and a final plot that isn't just thrown at you makes it a good watch.

  • Post Ep. 6 Review - Can't Wait for Season Two
    First off, I haven't read the manga, but I'm truly enjoying where this show is going. They are employing all of the harem attributes, but actually have a plot reason for them - Itami, our erstwhile protagonist and MC, is a huge otaku. Thankfully, he's not a full-blown NEET like Shinichi from Outbreak Company. Unlike that show, which sought to win the hearts and minds of the inhabitants of Eldant ...

  • Have you ever wondered?????
    Now for all you out that ever wondered what it would be like if we sent a modern tank or rifleman platoon. Well "GATE" shows you how the carnage will happen, but even though deaths after death they put the right amount of comedy to make yourself laugh at these J.S.D.F. (Japans Self-Defense Force) soldiers so far from home. And also if you wondered how modern army could handle against Harry Potter ...

  • Average viewer, great series
    I'm not a person who starts to really get sucked into the world of a show. Who starts to delve into all its underlying themes and issue's. The 6 episodes I have watched are great. Very easy to follow, really enjoyable. I'm liking how its starting to show the poIitics of the world vs Japan and the special zone. hope to see this series continue for a couple of seasons.
