Gate episode 08
There is no denying it; this episode was awesome! I laughed so much and my eyes were glued to my screen the whole time. I could definitely do with one or two more of these episodes. I’m so glad that I picked Gate to write about.
I’ll just get straight to it; the group went back through the gate to visit Japan. They were all shocked by what they saw; strange constructions as far as the eye could see. They, and by they I mean the princes and her companion, immediately realized how inferior they are. They can send massive armies to battle the Japanese military, but even she now knows for sure that there’s nothing that she or her father could ever do. At least, not as they are now. They might be able to steal some of the technology and use it against Japan in the future, that’s an option.
Anyway, I also laughed (and cheered a little) when Rory took the mic. She kept calling that obnoxious woman ‘little girl’ because of their difference in age. That woman did not like it and got a nice burn when she found out that Rory is hundreds of years old. The look on all their faces as that became known was priceless and well worth watching.
I’m not even going to focus on the fact that this Otaku captain of theirs isn’t only a Ranger but a Special Forces soldier as well. That’s just too much to image. I’m just shocked that it turns out that he was married at some point in his life. To an actual woman. I honestly don’t even want to know why they broke up. I’m guessing it has something to do with anime and manga.
