Gate episode 04
This is actually becoming quite interesting. An angle that I never thought of is slowly becoming more and more real, which is actually pretty good. There might actually be a war on either side of the gate if this keeps up.
I say all that because Japan is the only country with one of those gates. That gate leads to a whole new world filled with all sorts of untapped resources that Japan could obtain and use to become the world’s biggest superpower. I simply never thought of that. I just thought that they were going there to eliminate a threat.
The idea of them becoming the number one superpower is simply quite interesting. Other countries will become nervous (or at least their leaders will) and will naturally want to prevent Japan from becoming that powerful. The only way to do that is to get them to share that gate or to go to war with Japan and simply take that gate by force.
In the meantime; the defence force is doing their best to accommodate their new guests as best as they can. They have built houses, baths and all sorts of things that drastically improved their lives. In a smart amount of time they’ve built an entire base from scratch. It’s so heavily fortified that even a dragon would have a real tough time attacking them. Your average panzerfaust or RPG might not be enough to kill one of those things, but all of those tanks, canons and heavy anti-air artillery might just do the trick. Perhaps a guided missile or two to blind the dragon first? The possibilities are endless… See why I said that the story is becoming really interesting? I have no idea what’s going to happen next.
