Divine Gate

Mar 19, 2016

Divine Gate is another game to anime adaptation ... something which rarely ever succeeds as a worthwhile production. Indeed, Divine Gate is yet another industry failure.

Where the first few episodes were strong and lead you to believe that, for once, they were on the ball, instead, as the anime progressed the plot started to unravel at the seams until it completely fell apart into one massive jumbled mess. The pacing was simply horrendous, while the plot became confusing as hell! In addition to this, the characters were either annoying in the extreme ... or remarkably cliché. And, with the cliffhanger ending, I can only hope that the production company doesn't waste even more money by pouring it into this really crappy series (my opinion).

The animation, on the other hand, was actually quite good and was very appealing to look at. And perhaps the most important part of the entire series was the OST, particularly the thoroughly addictive OP, which was, frankly, one of the best I've heard in the past several seasons, and the only thing about this series worth praise.

Overall, I would advise everyone to pass on Divine Gate. Other than the animation and OST it has nothing else going for it. Don't waste your time on this. Just don't. -_-'
