    Its like Everyone's wet dream at once
    I intend to Update this review through to the last episode.

    ((as of Episode 12))
    So...you like shows with military accuracy? guns? machines of war?
    ...how about Fantasy? Dragons? Magic? Goblins?
    ...and Magical Girls? Elf Girls? Fighting girls? more....exotic girls?
    ...or a semi-coherent story? about Overwhelming military power? Politics?

    Well, this show has all of it, and then some. ...

    Great Series, Mediocre Anime
    2.5 at best.

    Certainly not the worst adaptation I've seen but I feel it's lost something in transition. One could make the argument that the manga is too graphic at times. But without that darkness to contrast the light humor in the series one might suspect it's making light of war. That the MC is simply an otaku who doesn't take it seriously. Some subjects have already been handled with kid ...

  • best show of the summer season, but falters in season 2
    This review is based on the first 24 episodes.

    One undeniable sign of a great show is the desire to rewatch episodes just for the enjoyment. This show has an interesting premise, interesting characters and a internally consistent plot. The animation is colorful and flows freely.

    the main issue I have with the show was the unemotional killing on the behalf of the Japanese military. if ...

    Epic batte between modern and fantasy.
    Gate is about this Otaku guy named Itami who becomes a hero for his bravery during the invasion of the people of another dimension into Japan. He then becomes a military officer and, alongside the JSDF, moves into the Gate in order to begin the conquest of a new world.

    One of the thing I like about this anime is that it shows the angst of war in a pretty realistic manner, if not counting the ...

    A nice change of pace
    Magical world in the medieval times vs a modern army. It's a nice change of pace but it's not all blood and guts, violence. Sure you have some overwhelming military might and firepower versus a medieval army which are going to show some seriously one sided body counts, but there is other moments of development with the army attempting to meet and form ties and impressions with the native people ...

  • About as honest a repersentation of a modern military in a fantasy world as can be.
    This show must have two separate divisions each headed by a specific nerd.
    -In one corner... the guy who knows everything about everything in the world about the modern military machine, like squad tactics and standard equipment.
    -In the other... a fellow who is obsessed with all things fantasy and knows what is the best to pull from... including massive dragons and heroic but politically ...

    One of the best paced show I've ever seen
    Great art, stunning VAs, incredible detail in terms of plot and progression, and extremely realistic.Glad to see that guns and tanks actually work against opponents, proper showing of treating patients, very likable MC and his squad, and sensible command which reflects our current society.

    I am currently still looking for the source material since I like this show way too much. Give this show a ...

  • First thoughts in the first 7 episodes...
    I honestly think this is a well created anime...considering my taste in genres, this is up there. I like the mix of reality and fantasy, and the creator does a great job showing the negative effects of unnecessary war. Why did the Empire attack Japan in the first place?

    I'm awaiting more character development with Itami, I get the sense he's just there... doing his job to support his hobby... ...

    I don't like but that doesn't mean you won't.
    For me this anime is just cringeworthy for a lot of reasons mainly the characters and how they act. The premise of going through a gate to a fantasy world is really cool but the way they execute it is lack luster and makes me want to either fall asleep or stop watching. Also the amount of fan service is a little uncomfortable but then again I just don't like a lot of fan service, the less the ...

  • Gate to alternate universe with cat girls, how can I lose?
    The title doesn't really give much away but I am really enjoying this anime.
    I would consider it definitely in my top 10 of all time.
    It has serious moments, it has great comedy.
    I think it can go for quite a while with a great story line.
    The characters are easy to relate to and it basically leaves you wanting more.
    You can see it is easily one sided battle but that doesn't matter.
    You just ...
