The much-anticipated Gate has finally arrived then… Alright… I must admit that I enjoyed watching the first episode. But I will say this; although the start really does look promising, this type of show can go either way after just a couple of episodes.
I have very little to no complaints about the artwork. Maybe some of the characters could’ve looked a bit better, but that’s alright. It’s pretty detailed and I like the setting. I expect a lot from this just by looking at the artwork.
Let’s face it; characters going to other worlds in order to fight and whatnot is nothing new. It’s been done before. Even in this particular setting. Sure, there are quite a few differences, but the similarities are still there. I wonder how Gate will stand apart from all the others.
I am going to give this a fair try. The first episode interested me and I am definitely going to watch the second episode, at least. I suggest you give this a try as well. You might really end up liking it.
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.Read More
People have told me quite a few times about how this is supposedly one of the “watchable” anime shorts. I’m sorry; I don’t see it. The artwork alone was too hard for me to watch. The fact that it’s only a couple of minutes per episode doesn’t help either.
As for the story; it’s an anime short. There isn’t one. I just don’t like this 2.5D nonsense and especially in this setting. It makes me want to stop watching anime altogether.
I’m sorry, but I am not going to waste my time on this crap and I don’t see how I could possible recommend others to do otherwise. Skip this stuff.
Plot Summary: In order to be more in the eyes of the public, Miss Monochrome begins working to become a top-selling idol. Spacey Miss Monochrome once again runs around the idol show biz world, being tossed around by others.Read More
I don’t understand why they even try. Honestly, they are completely ruining Naruto Shippuuden with these crappy fillers. Writing these posts feels like a chore and quite frankly I just want to stop. If things don’t get better after two weeks from now then I’m stopping for real.
I mean, most of this episode wasn’t bad. It was pretty good. We saw Kabuto again and found out that he had the nerve to switch sides once more. We saw Naruto a little, we saw how Guy was about to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to hold Madara at bay. And yeah, then came the fillers. I honestly already know about their past. I know about Guy’s past and about Lee’s past. We’ve already seen it countless times. There’s no need to waste any more time on it. Stop filling, goddammit! It seems that the next episode is going to suck as well.Read More
I am so happy that Ore Monogatari isn’t ending. I really forgot that there were twenty-four episodes instead of the usual twelve or thirteen. There’s no way that things can end anything soon. Many more things need to be explored.
I believe that this episode will lead to many new possibilities. We all know that Ai, Makoto’s older sister, has a real thing for Takeo because of the way he treated her ever since they met. Ai cannot let go of it. She keeps thinking about him and she keeps seeing him as boyfriend material. It’s fine if she wants to have a crush on Takeo, but it’s been so long that it’s more than just unhealthy, especially since Takeo could probably never see her as more than a sister. Maybe he could, I don’t know, but there’s simply no chance of anything happening now that he’s with Rinko.
But yeah, I’m happy that Ai made a friend in college. I’m also happy that he likes her and wants to fight for her. I’m even happier when he decided to show up in order to push Ai into confessing her feelings to Takeo. Now, I will agree when said that it’s really none of his business and that he should stay out of it, but I will also agree when said that he isn’t wrong and that Ai would probably start to move forward again after all this time. It’s really a tough spot. I doubt her relationship with Takeo would change though. I don’t think he would treat her any different than usual. We’ll see…Read More
I loved the first episode so much! Unbelievable! I have never read the manga and I’ve heard few things about it, so it goes without seeing that I was pleasantly surprise when I started watching the first episode. What a change!
The artwork is just sublime. I honestly wouldn’t dare to change a thing. The characters look amazing and the level of detail is superb. Really, the details are just insane. Even the way they censored things is subtle and doesn’t really bother me at all.
I would describe this story, from what I’ve seen, as a slightly darker version of Black Lagoon. It contains sex, violence and drama. Loads of it. Black Lagoon was pretty heavy for its time, but this may just end up surpassing that when it comes to violence and sex.
I honestly recommend this to every action and drama fan. It’s definitely worth checking out. I loved the first episode and I have insanely high hopes for this. It goes without saying that I’m already considering to write more about it.
