Gate 2 episode 04

So I went to work today seeing as I was feeling a little bit better when I woke up. Big mistake. Now I feel like I’m about to die and writing this post is basically an extremely difficult ending to an already extremely difficult day.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.33_[2016.02.02_23.47.49]This episode was so obvious and yet so entertaining that it’s quite easy to make this post short. I mean, that hostage damn near got killed after making it quite clear that she doesn’t care anymore whether she lives or dies, a soldier got hurt in the process and the culprit is dead. The mastermind? Obviously she’ll be getting away with it for now.

As for Youji and his quest to slay that dragon… Well… I suppose they will manage eventually when backup arrives, but I’m more concerned with hose those elves treated him and his friends after he came that way to basically kill that dragon before it could kill all of them. I would almost say that it’d be more fun to see him slay that dragon after it wiped out those elves.

Gate 2 episode 03

I wanted to write this post yesterday but I feel asleep. I do not regret it. I’ve been feeling so horrible lately and last night I actually managed to catch a few hours of sleep without coughing up a lung. I can only hope that I’ll be just as lucky tonight.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.56_[2016.01.27_00.03.58]I’ll come out and say it right away; I do not like how Youji is letting himself be manipulated like that. That dark elf used a lot of underhanded methods in order to get his help. She clearly does not mind to ruin other people’s lives if it means that her people get to keep theirs. Some might think it’s quite admirable that she’s willing to go so far for her people. I do not.

I have recently also been told that Youji will make some kind of pact with Rory. I have no idea what that’s about, but it couldn’t have been her biting him at the end of the episode, right? What was so special about that? All I get to see is the adorable Rory bite Youji’s arm. The only injustice is that she has been getting way too little screen-time lately.

Gate 2 episode 02

God bless the Gate series. My god… I knew I was right about this show as soon as I finished watching the very first episode. I knew then and there that it was going to be good. Did I think that it was going to be this good? No. It has exceeded my expectations.

[HorribleSubs] GATE - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.15_[2016.01.19_23.51.24]It’s a shame I’m still in the middle of this season’s ‘busy’ period because I think that this particular episode deserves a big post since it was epic. There is never a dull moment in Gate. If they’re not fighting than they’re exploring or on some other adventure. This is how it should be done, Japan. Learn from the author(s).

That moment where Youji gave the order to his men to open fire inside the castle and in front of that cocky king? Priceless. I watched that scene over and over again. I never got bored with it. I just continue at some point because I wanted to know what would happen after that. Well done! It’s about time that Japan got a little bit more aggressive since they got attacked first.

Gate 2

Thank you! Thank you so much! I have been waiting for this season for months now. It hurt that the first season ended so suddenly. I didn’t even realize it had ended until I realized a week later that no new episode had come out.

Gate 2The artwork is still as amazing as ever. The only negative thing I can say about it so far is that Rory-chan didn’t get a lot of screen-time during the first episode. Let that badass loli free!

It goes without saying that the story’s going to be great. The first season was fantastic and I am certain that this season will be just as great. It certainly started off with a bang.

I can honestly recommend this. It’s absolutely worth watching. No more need be said.

Plot Summary: A gate appears in Tokyo’s Ginza district sometime in the 21st century. From the gate pours out monsters, knights from middle-age Europe, and other fantasy-like beings, and they kill many of the citizens of Tokyo. This event is known as the Ginza Incident. The government sends a small group of soldiers from the Japanese Self-Defense Forces to the alternate world beyond the gate. Led by otaku soldier Yōji, they find that the villages in the world are being attacked by a dragon. An elf girl who is a survivor from the dragon’s rampage joins the group in their travels across the dangerous new world.
