Gate episode 06
I had to redo part of my schedule since Gangsta got rescheduled to air on Sunday and that messed things up a bit. What’s worse; I had to wait an extra week for both Gangsta and Himouto! Umaru-chan. At least I get to schedule Gate a day earlier.
I particularly likes this episode. We got to see a clear battle between modern day warfare and medieval warfare. Those from the Middle Ages may have shielded their bodies with (impurely forged) metal, but they are no match for attack choppers and assault rifles. They died within minutes, all of them. The machine guns and rockets made sure that their enemy died a quick and painless death. In a way it’s far more merciful than being stabbed by a sword or pierced by an arrow so you can slowly bleed to death. Very merciful indeed.
Also, I think it’s quite bold how that princess had the nerve to name terms after what she witnessed. She knows that she and her so-called knights are powerless against Japan’s modern technology. I wonder how she will react if she finds out that her knights captured one of the captain’s that laid waste to an enemy that they couldn’t defeat.
I’ll just say one more thing; I hope they won’t negotiate. Japan has no reason to negotiate as they have the power to bring their solder back by force if they need to. A smart princess would release him immediately after what she witnessed. I just cannot help but wonder how this will turn out, you know? I’m kind of thinking about how the princess might deliver him to her father.
